Trip to Saona Sin
Nov 2019 • Family
This person Israel Carpio, that is working at Royalton resort, is lying all the time. We booked this trip for Sunday. My mom felt on Saturday and injured her leg. I went to him and ask to cancel this trip. He said that he will move this trip on Monday and if she could not make it, he will cancel it. I came on Sunday and told him that she is not going to make it. He refused to cancel this trip. I was told that we have to go to a doctor and provide some proof that she can’t go to this trip. This is unacceptable. Also, he asked me to sign a paper that we refused to go to a doctor.

Saona Island was like in paradise. Beutiful white beaches, good food and a warm and lovely ocean. We travelled with Nexus and it was a good experience with a new bus and a good guide. We bought the trip with Heriberto on Nexus who gave us good service and information. We recomend you all to go Saona Island!

Saona Island
Sep 2019 • Friends
Saona island has the best beach I have ever visited, beutiful multi colored sea and soft sand.
Nexus tour group made the visit very comfortable, we had party on the way there in catamaran, stoped at natural pool to swim with star fishes, it was very enjoyable.
At the island we had amazing lunch, I would recommend to try the fish.
Orlando, worker of Nexus tours group, adviced to visit the island, made great presentation on what we should expect there and it didn't dissapoint. If you ever stay at Natura Park hotel visit him by the pool, he is always smiling and very helpfull. Say hi to him. Thank you, Orlando!

Cannot say enough good things about this experience!
Jul 2019 • Family
Was nervous that this trip would be too long for our kids (ages 7 and 3). However , our boys absolutely loved it! We were well taken care of by our guide, Angel. He was very friendly, engaging and made our instructions clear along the way. We all loved the speed boat, beach and catamaran. The semi submarine was short, but long enough to see some cool fish. Was also happy to get the chance to snorkel for a bit. Gorgeous views and very fun ride back on the catamaran with an entertaining dance party.

submarine not as good as expected, island beautiful
Jun 2019 • Couples
we booked this trip with high expextation and it didnt disapoint, we got the bus from our hotel (tui sensatori), to a pickup point where we then swapped onto a big bus and taken to the boats. we got on the boat and travelled to the submarine boat. this whole process took quite a long time as we had to wait for the boat to go back and collect the second half of the tourists. once on the boat we all went down to the submarine where one of the guides chucked food of the boat which was then met with thousands of beautiful fish.

after that we then were transported by a massive speed boat to the stunning natural pools and had about 20 minuites there, the water was absoulutly beautiful and great for photos, finnally we were transported the saona island where there was an amazing buffet with fresh chicken, pork and fish (there was also lots of other options). we then had about 2 hours on the island which we maybe would have preffered more. 1 issue we did find was that we nearly got left behind becasue we didnt hear anyone call our group name luckily we spotted some people from our group leaving and followed them.
finally for the last part of our trip we had 1 hour and 45 mins to relax on the catermaran, this was great fun with singing and dancing.

overall the trip is great fun however, you should expext to be waiting around quite a lot and maybe not have enough time on the island. the submarine is good for photos but i wouldn't say worth paying extra money for as all the fish are the same and it only lasts for about 5 minuites.

Absolutely Perfect Excursion
Jun 2019 • Friends
This day was perfect for our group of 42. We enjoyed the submarine view of sea life, snorkeling and then had the most fun racing our two speed boats to the natural swimming pool where we saw so many huge starfish before taking the speedboats to the private island for a delicious bbq and awesome beach complete with pineapple drinks and beach massages. The water is amazing and our trip ended with 2 hour catamaran ride with dancing and fun! I highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting Punta Cana! Fany was an amazing guide and leader for our group who organized everything from start to finish!!
