Our Opinion

A stunning hotel set on Cayo Levantado island. This is the only resort on the island, making is a great place for a secluded, relaxing vacation. At 195 rooms, the Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado is smaller when compared to some of the other Bahia Principe resorts, but the service and attention to detail her are a step above. A great spot for couples looking to getaway. One important note, packages to this hotel sometime fly into Puerto Plata, making for a very long transfer ride.


Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado is set on the secluded island that bears the same name as the hotel. Enjoy luxurious accommodations along with a great selection of restaurants and bars all set amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the Dominican Republic.

Located in the center of Cayo Levantado island is a stunningly attractive natural environment, the spa is impressive. Cayo Levantado is one of the world's most beautiful islands and an ideal place to enjoy a comfortable luxury vacation amidst matchless natural surroundings. The wonderful Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado resort offers all the necessary amenities to turn your vacation into a dream trip.

Location: Beachfront on its own private island, 60 minutes from Samana El Catay Airport, 4 hours from Puerto Plata, a 10 minute boat ride from the island to the mainland.

Amazing resort

This is an absolutely wonderful resort. Rooms, service, staff, everything was simply perfect. The pool, the beach, the restaurants, perfect also. Expensive and totally worth it. We went with Air Canada and had an amazing service and did great activities. It was a dream trip! One tip, wrong resort if you are going there to party, as there is no nightlife, but if you are looking for relaxing in total luxury, stop searching and book!

Excellent Honeymoon location, Amazing hotel and facilities, Great Staff

Amazing place, the staff is super and always willing to help and to improve the stay.Absolutely recommended.All the facilities were carefully cleaned and kept, no hold back on drinks nor food, and all served and cared with a smile on the face.Plus, transportation across all the resort on a electric car. In my case, as I had a injury on the foot and could not walk, this was big deal and improved my stay a lot.

Summer holiday

The first thing everyone needs to know the 3 hour minimum transfer from Puerto plata airport is awful after a 8 hour plus flight from the uk. On arriving we had to wait 45 minutes for the boat transfer to the hotel.The hotel offers several restaurants to eat in but they are not open all the time. We were told we had to book them we tried to do this on the first Sunday but we could only get one booking instead of the allotted 4. After complaining we did manage to get the bookings we needed for our 2 week stay.The Don Pablo gourmet restaurant is superb great food and service in a superb environment. But if you order red wine be careful as it comes ice cold as does the red wine in all the restaurants.The Rodizio restaurant is very good good food and service.Likewise the Mediterranean.The Portofino restaurant was awful the food was awful and the staff were treating it like a play ground.The buffet restaurant is very good with theme nights every night.Also the buffet is open for a good breakfast and lunch.The restaurant at the Lower pool is open for buffet a lunch but is pretty much the same everyday.The main buffet is varied everyday for lunch.The pools are great as is the jacuzzi pool. The beaches are very nice and the sea is warm.The rooms look tired as does most of the hotel and could do with a renovation.The staff are great happy and helpful.The grounds are beautiful and well maintained.Would we return the answer would be know I am afraid.

Great location, "Bacardi Beach", long transfer but worth it.

This island is in a nutshell everything you would expect from the Dominican Republic. The only thing I would say is, as a UK visitor the only flight option (unless you can afford a helicopter transfer) involves a three hour + coach or extortionate taxi transfer journey. Please don't be put off by this. I get travel sick and hate busses. I took some travel sickness tablets with me, sat near the front and treated it as part of the tour. The real Dominican Republic will unfold right in front of your eyes. Including the 'health and safety' UNconscious locals riding scooters three up whilst carrying a replacement gas cylinder, wearing little more than shorts and flip flops. Views over tropical landscapes pour out beauty whilst closer to the roadside the poverty of the shanty towns will take your breath away on another level.In a similar way the island is separated into two areas, the hotel owns most of the island. A smaller yet potentially more beautiful beach is reserved for the public. Hotel guests can freely roam the public areas just book out at security and pick up a beach towel on the way out. The locals cannot however visit the hotel grounds.The reviews have said most of this before but it's lovely, the restaurants are all worth a visit. We didn't use the hotel app, just spoke to concierge as instructed and booked no problems. There is a gym if that's what gets you. The snorkelling is not brilliant but I did see a variety of sea life including cuttlefish, rays and some very big star fish. If you really want to see anything more interesting there is an in house dive centre and they are reasonably priced with daily boats out to several sites. The local wreck is an old freely and worth a visit. The sea is a huge shallow bay and is home to the humpback whale during mating season and during nursing young so almost guaranteed a sighting if you take a boat trip. We also saw dolphins by boat and off shore early in the morning.The staff are nice, the beach bar is fun, if you smile chat and tip they will be more attentive, usual stuff. Would I go again? Probably yes. Three hour coach trip to airport on way home was hard.

Fiurth trip

Recently came back from our fourth visit to Cayo... 10 of us this time šŸ˜€.... we love the hotel and the staff are amazing (big thanks as always to Wenney, Martin and Fernando for their great servIce and friendliness) ... If you have never been before i I would highly recommend this hotel, but, if you've been in the past things aren't quite as they used to be. Management has changed and some were great but others definitely not the usual Bahia standard, cutbacks beginning to be made which is understandable in the economic climate but they need to be careful they dont go too far... i would still 100% return but perhaps not for a while now...its3 the little things that got to us.. silly stuff.. no butter just a horrible tasting margarine now, hit and miss mini bar restock, door locks failing constantly, poor wifi connection (reception staff telling my husband he wasnt using it properly, and in a very condescending manner, didnt go down well as thats his area of expertise!!), staff cutbacks leaving waiting and bar staff run ragged trying to keep everything didn't spoil the holiday though
