Atlantis Hotel
Playa Bonita, Las Terrenas

Located just a few steps from Playa Bonita’s sandy beach in the shade of a lush, tropical grove resplendent with coconut palms and other native vegetation, the Atlantis Hotel offers a special ambiance not found in many Dominican tourist accommodations.
The charm of the property is evident in its setting and architectural delights: nooks and crannies here, a marvelous old map on the wall there. An inside hall becomes a composition in lines when the light is just right as it’s stairs lead us up, seemingly into infinity.
The stairwell becomes a huge mushroom rising from the lush grounds as it reminds us of the whimsical, artistic fancy of the hotel’s owner-builders. It and other artistic creations and architectural interest embodied in the hotel structure further melds us into an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
Caressed by the ocean breezes of Playa Bonita, the hotel has 19 rooms of differing configurations, all with fans and some with air-conditioning. Accommodating up to four persons, the rooms are named instead of being numbered and are decorated and furnished accordingly.
All rooms have immense bedrooms, marble bathrooms, are comfortably appointed and invite the weary traveler to relax. And with the accommodations come the option of an ocean view, a private balcony or terrace setting with a garden view. Rates vary from $60usd to $130usd, depending on season and occupancy. Rates include breakfast and taxes and families with children are welcomed.
Completing the setting is a completely natural beach with beach chairs available for guests, a private children's playground and the warm, placid waters of Playa Bonita, safe for swimming for even the youngest of aquanauts.

Dining in the hotel's restaurant is under the watchful eye and culinary guidance of Gerard Prystasz, a well-known French chef and pupil of master chef, Gerard Boyer. Before coming to the Dominican Republic, Prystasz was chef to former-French President Francois Mitterand. Discover the delights of a particularly sumptuous and well-presented assortment of local foods, prepared to mouth-watering goodness with a touch of French cuisine.

Dine in the coziness of the restaurant's indoor lounge-like setting, or dine on the outdoor terrace or even eat on the beach at a romantic table set for two; it's all yours for the asking.

Although located just 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Las Terrenas, Atlantis Hotel is worlds apart from this popular tourist destination. Here you can rent a car, hire a taxi or explore the many boutiques and shops featuring native arts and crafts. Days are for shopping, exploring the countryside, visiting the many attractions the Samana Peninsula has to offer or just lazing on the beach. But the nights,…the nights are for the tropical rhythms of merengue, salsa or bachata! Many discos and salsa bars populate the village and cater to the Dominican's insatiable demand for music and dance.

Other activities available include horseback riding, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling and SCUBA diving, wind surfing, sailing, whale-watching, tennis and excursions to waterfalls, caves and national parks. See the Attractions section of Samana Online for more activities information.

Paradise exists: Atlantis Hotel and its' surroundings bear testament to this. Your hosts, hotel-manager Veronique, her husband-chef Gerard and their friendly staff await your arrival with their special blend of hospitality. Whether you have any questions, require travel assistance or need help in planning your vacation, just ask and the Atlantic team will gladly see that your vacation is a memorable one.
