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.

  • Tommy C :
Paradise on an Island

Many/All Reviews have really said it all.However, hope this helps the 'doubters' that is one of the best resorts we have ever been toMe and my wife flew from Manchester to Puerto. Transfer then via private taxi (& return). Was it worth it - Honestly no. (Could have been to the season we travelled)Arrived at the Jetty with a welcome bottle of water, flannel and the necessary forms to fill out10 minutes boat ride to the Island, great experience, warmly met by staff, drink and great atmosphereTaken straight to our room (Main Building - Room 203)Wow - Great View, overlooking the sea area & the area covered by the outside lobby bar/evening entertainmentRoom, as what you would expect. Great outside terrace with table and 2 chairs. Inside, sofa and 2 comfy chairs, great king size bed. Fridge (Well maintained, water, beer, soft drinks, tonic water and 3 small bottles of spirits). and of course the TV. Aircon and overhead fan (Both well needed). Bathroom, with separate toilet and shower and hot tub.Only 2 areas where we would say needs to be looked at - number of plug points and can be rather dark due to the number of lights.Cleaning of the room - No problem (2nd week was actually better than the 1st)Breakfast in the main restaurant - Superb. Buffet style but also available, pancakes, eggs cooked in front of you. Cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, bread, bacon etc.. You cannot fault anythingBeaches - 2 - One windy side the other limited breeze. Once again absolutely superb. Service on the beach - Luvly Jubly. Pools - 2 - One By the 2 beaches, other on the main level. Both Wow. You cannot faultDinner - Either by the lower pool or if at the top in the main building buffet. Once again you will not be able to fault the quality and quantity of food available and the service. Forgot to mention, to get to the beach, you can walk and go by the elevator or by the TaxiEvening meals - Buffet - Excellente. Or go for the one of the 4 a-al-acarte. All superb. Our preference was the Dan Pablo or the Radrizo.Once again, service and food quality in all was 100%Lobby Bar - We really only used this in the evening, and the quality of drinks and service was once again upon approach. Special mention to Venny, who was so amicable and always fantastic (Thankyou)Transport over the island via Taxi was a god sendI can go on and on, but honestly, any doubts on going to this island (with the exception of the long transfer) is really required and you will go back again and again (met a couple who have been 5 times)You NEED TO GO and YOU WILL NOT REGRET YET

This review is on behalf of our son and his girlfriend who visited this hotel on our recommendation as per our holiday last year and I was a little concerned that it may have been a little bit too quiet for their tastes (they are both in their early twenties), they had stayed in the sister hotel Caya Coa last year but after hearing about our fantastic holiday last year decided to give this hotel a go. The first few days the weather was a little hit and miss (beyond anyones control) but once they got friendly with the entertainers they thoroughly enjoyed themselves - apparently Luiz, Angel and Alberto (beach bar-tender) made the holiday well worth while - their room was outstanding and by the end of the two weeks they didn't want to come home. We are returning on the 28th August this year to celebrate my 51st birthday - we were there last year for my 50th and everyone made it a memorable one and we are both counting down the days!! The butlers cannot do enough for you if you ask, if not they leave you in peace. A perfect holiday in a perfect setting!!!

perfect for couples

Had a beautiful vacation with my girlfriend. Food selection and quality were excellent, including fine dining, buffets, fruits, salads, desserts,,,. The service was to-the-point and sincere. We made some good memories and great friends. Big shot out to Amaryllis, Luis and the rest of the Entertainment team! They really made our vacation special with their charisma, shows, and activities, including lots of dancing, beach games and more! The rooms are huge, clean and have amazing views. Two beaches, several pools, several bars, several specialty restaurants, including a !Brazilian steakhouse!, two buffets, gym, tennis court, beach volleyball, watersports (kayaking and snorkeling gear for free), beautiful places to go on romantic walks, you name it.

"The most amazing holiday ever".

The hotel is beautiful, we stayed at a beach villa (31103) which was lovely, felt a bit odd as around us were honeymoon couples, but the room was so large, it gave us, as a famil, plenty of room, Myself, my husband and 19 year old son, had an absolutley brilliant time. The beach is quite small but there were hardly any people there, we went July 2017, and I counted only 40 people on the beach one day, it felt very secluded, there are two parts to the beach as it forms a sort of triangle, there is a windy part where the sea is choppy but it is brilliant for getting a tan as you dont feel the heat of the sun, the calm side is lovely for swimming, I didn't see many fish, but didn't really get the time to snorkle. There is so much to do, I must say a big thank you to Henrry (such a lovely, funny, kind man) and Kendri (so funny, fun loving and kind) these two were part of the Animation Team ( the Bahia Principie, have a group of people who get people to take part in different activities during the day, such as volleyball, horse shoes and Bocce and in the evening dancing), Henrry from day one made us feel welcome and actually got us to take part in some games, he was so friendly and gave us all nick names, my son felt a little awkward, as he thought there were lots of couples, but Henrry involved him in activities and made him so enjoy his holiday he really made my son feel at ease and laugh and joked with him continually throughout the day, making it a great holiday, so a great big thank you goes to Henrry. Also I must say, Kendri is one of the nicest people you could ever meet, he is so funny always entertaining everyone, he really is a credit to the hotel and the Animation team, he made us laugh and got us involved in games during the day, and got us up dancing in the evening at the various parties that were organised, our favourite was the Friday night beach party, at the Public Beach, the music was excellent and we had a fantastic time, its a shame they didn't have a party night on the beach more than once a week, that was certainly the highlight of our week.All in all the hotel is lovely, the entertainment is good, Michael Jackson was very entertaining, the food is nice, could do with a bit more spicey options, loved the Rodizio Restaurant it is a must, best food by far.The staff really make this hotel something special, we have been to other Bahia Principehotels but the staff at this hotel go that extra mile to make sure you are happy and having a great time, the men who drive the taxis always give you a smile and friendly greeting, we even got a hug on our last day from the taxis driver who always took us back to our villa, the waiters and waitresses are a credit to you always a friendly smile.The staff make this hotel not just a hotel, they make you feel like they are your friends. Thank you everyone for making our holiday such a wonderful experience.

Week in paradise

This was our second time to this beautiful resort, and again they did not disappoint. We had a beach villa (31102). This trip was to be just R&R and it's exactly what we did. We arrived to our room, a bottle of champagne, plates of cold cuts, cheeses, and desserts were waiting for us, and it was welcomed as we had traveled all day, got to DR 2 hours later than expected and into our room at around 12:30am.Our à la carte dinners were all reserved for us before we got there, thank you so much for this. They also had a romantic dinner reserved for our wedding anniversary as we were there to celebrate it.What impressed me the most was some of the staff remembered us from last year. The first morning at breakfast, Gerson, who by the way is just fabulous, remembered us from last year, came over to a greet us like we were family. The same can be said of Johanny from the Jacuzzi pool, as soon as she saw me, she came over welcomed us back, gave me a big hug and a kiss. This is one of the reasons we love this resort so much. Now a big shout out to the Animation team, Kendri, who's a terrific dancer (miss seeing your beautiful smile), Luiz, Henry, Darianny, Paulina (love you), Amaralese, Mari Luz, Loraimy, and Franklin. You're never bored, they always have a game of some kind going on. Bingo was awesome, every afternoon at 3. The ocean aqua fitness was so much fun. We also did a tour of the facilities, you never know really what it takes to run a hotel, especially one on an island. Let's just say they have everything under control and well organised.The food was excellent. Bahia resorts never disappoint, that's why they're our favorite place to vacation. I did forget my cellphone at the Jacuzzi pool one morning and it was immediately turned over to their security team, and was told to go to the lobby to retrieve it. They were waiting for me, thank you very much. The staff works very hard to make your stay pleasant and memorable. We will definitely go back to paradise soon.
