The helicopter ride itself was great, however; we paid for the additional hour and was told we did not. When things got sorted out we spent most of our time fixing the kinks in the miscommunication of the company and could not fully enjoy our trip on the island. There was NO apology from the company either: The lunch was terrible a lot of waiting around and it wasted a lot of time. Not to mention the people that did not pay the additional hour got to stay longer on the island on our dime. The island is beautiful however if I were I do it again I would book and different tour.

The helicopter ride was awesome. The view from the air is a great experience.There was not enough time do anything on Saona. One hour is not enough time to enjoy much. The beach, well there was not much of one and you see pics of all this open and gorgeous beach area, not were we were. The food was good and the service was excellent ! For almost 600 the experience needs to be great not good

This excursion was pretty amazing! I took a quick trip from my hotel via small bus to the heliport near the airport and from there we watched a quick safety video before heading to a nearby small 4 person helicopter. One couple went with a pilot directly to the island, and I had the awesome experience of going into another helicopter and being taken down the coast for a pickup directly in front of someone's hotel for another couple I assume they had booked a similar - more expensive - excursion that included helicopter hotel pickup. From there we all headed down across the beautiful green countryside to Saona Island. Saona Island is just off the coast, not very far from the mainland, and the waters there are the most amazing shade of blue you will ever see. When you think 'blue' or better yet 'azul' you will think of these colors! There isn't a lot to the island, really. With this excursion you don't get the BBQ style you hear about with other Saona Island excursions, you get a nice private little lunch in pretty white cabanas away from any crowds. You'll have huge platefuls of food waiting for you BBQ chicken, an entire split lobster, some beef or pork, rice, pasta, cabbage salad, stewed potatoes, and more. You also have your choice of beverages I had their signauture rum and some coke. During the off season, at least, the place wasn't crowded at all. It was beautiful and peaceful and we had a very nice quiet lunch. The food wasn't amazing, not even close, but it was edible and it was really the scene that made it relaxing. Note: there are a TON of flies, however, that will try to swarm your food. Other tables seemed to have more of a problem but I controlled it by carefully keeping the food wrapped in the plastic it came with and just kept enough food on my plate to eat. The other tables seemed to just unwrap everything and leave it out and it attracted the flies. Also during the lunch you will be accosted by a lot of locals trying to sell you things. I saw in other Saona reviews that people really complain about this but in my case a simple but firm 'no gracias' sent them on their way. There were like 5 different sellers, but none were pushy once I made it clear I wasn't interested. After lunch I spent some time exploring the small beach. The sand there is beautiful, and there's loungers if you just want to relax. There are also some nearby shops where you will be encouraged to 'looky looky' if you get close - I did, and was pleasantly surprised! Shirts were about 12 without haggling, which is about half the price of buying them in hotels or elsewhere. Totally worth some soveniers and the people at the shop were quite nice. After our 1-1.5 hours on the island it was time to head back. This time we went along the coast and our pilot showed us some amazing sights. Then I had the added awesome bonus of being dropped off at my hotel via helicopter! This isn't normally included with this tour but because the other couple had booked it and my hotel was next door I lucked out. Maybe you will, too, or you can ask about paying a little extra for a drop off. Nothing says rockstar lifestyle like landing on the beach via helicopter! : Overall I really enjoyed this and thought it was worth the price. You can enjoy your helicopter flight and beautiful white cabanas while you watch people coming in sunburned off long boat trips going to the rather boring looking BBQ nearby.

La salida fue 1 hora después de lo programado El tour es de 4:30 de acuerdo a nuestra solicitud por lo que en en Isla Saona deberíamos estar por lo menos 2 horas y solo estuvimos 50 minutos porque el atraso de la empresa de helicópteros Helidosa retrasó a todos los que estábamos en espera y ellos para.NO tener atraso en todo el día lo resolvieron reduciendo el tiempo de tour de nosotros y supongo que el de los demás pasajeros en sus diferentes intinerarios Es un robo y fraude
