Many people have already covered all the positives about this hotel and for the most part I am in full agreement, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful grounds, good quality food with plenty of choices. I would have loved to give 5 out of 5 but service in some areas was fragmented at best, the quiet pool for example was very... More

Beautiful beach area. Lots of shopping but they are a little pushy. Good food at reasonable prices. Gotta have one of the piña coladas in a pineapple with a little umbrella. Lounge chairs are free to hang out on the beach. Good snorkelling right off the beach or you can pay for them to take you to the coral reef.... More

Beautiful beach under long swaying palm trees. If you are staying at Cayo Levantado, try and hit up the beach early in the morning and it will be deserted. Night time beach volleyball isnt to be missed at the beach party.

Cayo Levantado is an island in the bay of Samana. Half the island belongs to the Bahia group and one of their flagship hotels is situated here. The other half is a public beach made of white coral sand that arcs in a horseshoe, spattered with palms and looks quite idyllic. You will come here on an excursion boat from... More

Wonderful time & very beautiful... Just wished they offered fresh water to rinse off after getting out of the ocean once you were done. Since we booked scuba diving & snorkel trip the shop had a hose to wash off though. That was nice... Drive shop & employees where great... Very fun & enjoyable day with my Mom, Uncle, &... More

Cayo Levantado island is one more paradisic place in the Dominican Republic. You can pick up a bote ( we paid $Dom 2000, around $US40 for the 2 of us) that crossed in 15 minutes the waters in between the island and the shore. Half of the island is occupied with a 5 star luxurious all inclusive hotel that we... More

For a hotel guest should be nice. At the Hotel vis a vis from the public beach on Cayo Levantado was more relaxed.
