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.

Another great relaxing vacation

This was our third visit to this wonderful island and hotel. This time we returned to the resort to celebrate our 20 year Wedding Anniversary in August 2017. When we arrived, our room was nice decorated and a fruit basket together with champagne was waiting for us in the room. This was so unexpected and it was such a nice touch from management, which made you feel special. Thank you so much for this nice gesture. The resort once again lived up to our expectations, all the staff went above and beyond to make your stay a happy one. The management and all of the staff are hard working professional and friendly making sure your every need is met.The customer service in general is just excellent. Whether we were are at the beach, pool or in the restaurants, we were never left waiting for a drink and, although we tipped regularly throughout our stay, it was by no means expected by them and the service was exactly the same to those who didn't. This whole island has a feeling of tranquility, which is exactly why we selected this resort.The buffet restaurant was excellent at every meal, with a lot of variety. As always with plenty of fresh food, from yogurt, fruits, eggs (Irineo will prepared you a fresh omelet for breakfast) and red and black caviar, cheeses, breads for breakfast.The gardens are immaculate and constantly tended.The beach is well maintained and we had no trouble finding nice spots to sit and relax. The water is clean and shallow at the shore. Staff at the beach will go around several times to keep you comfortable with the best brands of liqueurs and beer the entire day from plain water, to top shell drinks. We will definitely return at this wonderful resort. Special thanks to all staff and specially to Franz, who always was there for us, when needed and who always provided us excellent customer services on a timely basis.

Fantastic birthday celebrations!!

This review is a little overdue.My partner chose this beautiful island based on previous reviews. From the moment we checked in nothing was too much. We stayed in a beautiful room, 212 I believe which was in the main building. Emmanuella our butler was absolutely amazing and decorated our room beautifully for both our birthdays, especially mine with rose petals throughout and the jacuzzi on the balcony decorated as well along with a bottle of prosecco and fresh fruit. Wenny and Walky always had a smile on their face in the lobby bar and didnt need to be reminded of your drinks order - as soon as our glasses were empty, they didn't stay that way for long! Josua was fantastic and always made our visits to the restaurants that little bit special especially on our last evening on the island. You cannot fault any of the restaurants, they are all good - we both came back a stone heavier, but hey that's what holidays are for.The weather was good, some rain but mostly in the evenings and had a few downcast days but this didn't spoil the holiday, we still managed to come back with good tans.All I would say is the drinks down by the pools were very watered down, so much so that you couldn't really taste the alcohol. Would we go back, yes, in a heartbeat but probably in a couple of years time. You cannot really fault this hotel, the people really help make your stay a memorable one!

It really is paradise ... exceeded expectations by miles.

This was our first visit to this resort, and it did not disappoint! We checked in and were surprised that our garden view actually had the sea in it too, with a beautiful view from the huge balcony. It was one of the biggest hotel rooms we have ever had.The food was incredible, even the buffet! Before we arrived, we were worried about having to eat in the buffet due to past experiences with All Inclusive hotels, but by the end we were choosing to eat there instead of the A la Carte restaurants. Definitely go to the buffet dinner on Thursday for Lobster cooked to perfection!All the staff are incredibly friendly and personal, little things such as remembering things we had asked for before was a lovely touch.Henry, Paulina and co. from the Animation Team were great fun and did an amazing job of getting us up and joining in with some of the beach activities. They created a fun atmosphere between all the guests, yet did not disturb the peacefulness of the beach.Before we arrived, we thought we would go out from the Island quite a bit, but in the end we only did one half day excursion throughout our stay on the Island, as the hotel had enough to keep us happy!Unfortunately due to Hurricane Irma, we had to move to another hotel after 10 days of being on the island due to safety reasons. The stay at the other hotel only helped us confirm how amazing this hotel is, even though we were staying at another hotel with the same rating as Cayo Lavantado, it came no where near close to the standard of service we had at the island!Cayo Lavantado exceeded our expectations, and we would not hesitate to come back again, and we have not yet met anyone who has vacationed there and said otherwise.

Beautiful and relaxing get away

If you want an adults only beautiful place with the very good service, you found it.My wife and I have been to the Caribbean numerous times (DR third time, Cuba twice, Mexico twice, Jamaica once) and this was the best place we have ever been to. The staff are very good at what they do and the grounds are very beautiful. The rooms are nice and quite large. The entertainment is average and so is the food. I would say the food is better than Cuba but average. Their house wine definitely needs improvement.The beach is very nice but not much snorkeling.We would return to this resort. Maybe in April with another couple.
