The Crown Jewel of Bahia resorts and it shows

The Crown Jewel of Bahia resorts and it shows. Magnificent Garden Island with All the Luxury Perks Bahia has to offer. Transfer to/from Island via boat are quick and easy. Once you arrive you are entering a beautiful garden with places to play, party, relax or enjoy yourself in beautiful lobby bar with a glass of Brugal Siglo De Oro (for the lucky ones). How beautiful is the Island? well you have to come to believe it as you won't believe when I tell you its breathtaking. I recommend taking green walks throughout the island (its not that big) and its up and down trails/roads. There are few pools on the island and we used all three (main, quiet, Jacuzzi pool), we preferred the quiet pool surrounded by greenery with its own quiet bar where you can get a very tasty Passion Fruit Margarita :). Bahia staff never disappoints and is always ready to take care of you. The food is top notch as are all the restaurants (men - long pants required at Don Pablo restaurant). Rooms are always clean and minibar stacked with beer and spirits of your choice as well as soft drinks. You are on a paradise island, enjoy it!!! Leventado Island has two beaches (one on either end)....the front beach is a public beach by day (until 6pm) after which all non resort occupants must leave the island and the area is utilized by resort guests and late night parties. The back beach is accessible only to resort guests. Both beaches at Leventado are nice and clean however if you want to take long strolls on the beach you won't be able to do that on the island (natural barriers). This did not deduct anything from Leventado experience, our stay here was in one word Awesome, with lots of beautiful memories and pictures. We will definitely be back at Luxury Bahia Levantado.
Thank You to the Great Bahia team making this a vacation to remember :)

This was our first visit to Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado. We have been to several Bahia Principes over the past 10 years and as always the staff, food, rooms and service are excellent.

If you are thinking about going here, try to get a flight into Samana, otherwise you will fly into Puerto Plata and then have a 4+ hour bus ride and then a 10 minute boat ride to the island the resort is on.

I was under the impression that the resort was adults only, but it was changed to a family resort. There were a few children there but not many.

Our room faced north and we had a nice view of Samana Bay. Very quiet and relaxing. The bar fridge was restocked daily with beer, water, pop (soda) and chips. There are trams, or as we liked to call them Dominican UBER, to take you around the resort if you wanted them.

There is free Wi-Fi throughout the resort (beach, pools, lobby, rooms etc) and it is hit and miss. Our friends had a router in their room and if they took the room key out (which turned the power in the room off) then there was no internet in our room. The only place there was no Wi-Fi, that we noticed, was at the Jacuzzi.

No matter what time of day we went to either of the pools or beach or Jacuzzi, there were plenty of lounge chairs available with umbrellas. There was no need to get up early and “reserve” a lounge chair with a towel even though you aren’t supposed to.

There was a poolside appetizer cart at the lower pool with sandwiches, as well as similar selection at the upper pool in the bar. The bar at the upper pool also had a coffee machine and tea available. The beach buffet Los Caracolas was right beside the lower pool and we always were able to get a table for lunch. Luz was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The waiters and bartenders at the beach bar Hybiscus were always coming around the pool and beach to ask us if we wanted drinks etc.

At the upper pool, the waiter/bartender Liberny from the Flamboyan bar was fantastic. He was so friendly and always ready to get us drinks and snacks.

There is no bar at the Jacuzzi, but there is a fridge with bottled pop (soda) and bathrooms.

The Orquidea Buffet (main buffet) was excellent. We had the same table every morning for breakfast and after the first morning, Lucia (wonderful, friendly lady) knew our drinks and would have them brought to our table right away. There was always lots of food, from bagels, eggs, bacon, yogurt, hot and cold cereal and fresh fruit to choose from. For dinner Esther was usually the lady that got our drinks, another friendly staff member. There were different theme nights, Dominican, Mexican, Asian and International, and again lots of choices.

We went to the Rodizio (Brazilian) a la carte twice and the Don Pablo (Gourmet) a la carte once. Food and service were good.

Virginia in the lobby bar was always there to make sure we had our favourite drinks and snacks.

The Animation team was fantastic. Erick, Rolando, Javier, Johan and Jose were engaging, friendly and funny.

Gregory (I’m assuming one of the managers) took the time to talk with us and make sure everything was to our satisfaction.

There is also a public beach on the island where guests from other resorts are brought over for the day. We took a walk down to the public beach, there are vendors selling everything, paintings, clothes, jewelry, alcohol, coffee, trinkets etc. Be prepared for the pressure of buying things if you walk to the public beach. There is also a buffet restaurant and bar, but that is not included with the resort, if you want to get anything there, you have to pay for it.

Overall, we had a great time and would definitely go back. Food and accommodations were wonderful. And all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Beware! They will take advantage of you!

Our flight has just been cancelled due to the grounding of the Boeing 737's ongoing issues and because of that we are now unable to fly out to DC for another two days. Instead of continuing our current reservation charges, they are choosing to charge us an overpriced premium because they know we cannot leave. For an island that lives on tourism they don't take care of their guests. Think about this before you book with bahia principe because if anything happens they will smile and overcharge you and tell you they cannot help you. This hotel is at 50 percent capacity right now and they are charging us half of what we paid for 7 days for just two more because we cannot leave!!!

Great vacation venue!

Beautiful location on an island in Samana Bay. Really enjoyed our Superior Junior Suite with king size four poster bed & large balcony overlooking the bay. Food at a la carte restaurants & buffet was very good. Service very friendly & prompt.Gorgeous landscaping on the resort grounds. Not a problem getting a lounger or towel at any of the pools. Private beach is smaller than public, but blame a previous hurricane for changing the real estate. The spa is lovely with a warm hydrotherapy pool & nice array of services Variety of entertainment every evening outside the main building (nice area to meet other guests). All sorts of excursions available, including whale watching December to April. Would describe this as a quiet adults only resort which changed recently to family friendly (there isn't much for kids to do that we could see).We chose this place on the recommendations of friends who had been there previously & we're glad we went. Only caveat was some lack of knowledge of gluten free diet requirements by restaurant staff: this can be remedied with a little education.
