From Toronto 3oDec-06Jan!

Escape the cold this Christmas break and enjoy some fun in the sun with your family.  The Bahia Grand El Portillo has an absolutely stunning beach and is located on a beautiful peninsula in the north east of DR. You can see the whales that come to birth in Samana Bay from Jan-Apr and enjoy the tropical breeze while you sip a delicious cocktail.  There is a reef just off shore where you can snorkel and the beach is quiet with no other hotels around.The resort has been recently renovated with all new kids and teen clubs, restaurants, beachfront pool and updated common areas.The rooms have large bathrooms and either king + sofa bed or 2 double beds.  There is a great kids club, mini disco, kids pool with water slides, beachfront pool with swim up bar and many areas to sit out and enjoy the tropical breeze.  This area of DR is much less developed than Punta Cana and feels like you are a million miles away when you aren’t, the resort is only 20 mins from the Samana airport and minutes from the town of Las Terenas.  See the whales in Samana Bay for an extra special experience!
