    I have been on a quest to find the most stunning beach to relax on for me, and good diving for my husband. We stayed at a beach front villa, and the beach and view did not disappoint! The room was spotless, and due to the beach being under repair after a storm, only three villas were being used, so the location was quiet. Just not private. We expected lots of food traffic during the day, but at night the "romantic tub" was in in full view (and had no hot water), so do not expect privacy. I would recommend for those looking for a nice and quiet relaxing vacation; sun-seekers, whale watchers, maybe small groups. Not the most ideal for those who need tons of activities to keep them entertained. The grounds were unbelievably well cared for - the staff should be proud! My only note to management would be to take better considerations of food allergies; we emailed ahead and still were not able to confirm our needs until the second evening.

    We just returned from a two week vacation at Bahia Levantado and it was amazing. The staff were incredible and the resort exceeded our expectations. Special mention goes to Omar pinales escare at the pool bar, fana Batista at reception and Juan working as a grounds keeper at the upper pool bar. The food was amazing, especially enjoyed the don pablo restaurant. We enjoyed that there were always loungers by the pool available anytime of the day. The grounds were beautiful and the whale watching was amazing ( take binoculars as we could see them from our own balcony)Most relaxing vacation ever. We stayed in the main building with a large balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was beautiful and the maid service was excellent. The nightly shows were great and usually ended around 10:30 or 11 pm. The Santo Domingo coffee is to die for ( we brought 4 bags home). If you like the hustle and bustle of other resorts this is not for you however if you want pure relaxation this is the place to go. i highly recommend this resort.

    Hello, I never write a comment on the places I visit, but there I have to do it. We are a group of 6 and went from March 22 to 28, 2020. Only the beach which disappointed us all, we had excellent service throughout the week. I would like to thank the employees at the main buffet for exceptional service during our visit especially Carolina, Candido, Ester and Louis-Alberto. On the other hand, I would like to extend a special thank you to Daniel Fermin who allowed us all to live an experience worthy of the biggest hotels around the world with his quality of service. Thanks Daniel! "Excelente" Yves.

    Hi Everyone, We just returned from a week's vacation at Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado, all that I can say is that it exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the main hotel. Had a huge room with a balcony bigger then my kitchen! Our room was spotless. Some reviews state no hot water but we always had hot water. While we were in the hotel near the stage, the shows ended around 10pm so we never had any noise issues. Due to the hurricane a while back, the hotel is making improvements to the private beach which sustained some damage. It did not take away from our experience. There were always chairs available, great towel service, great drink service and amazing complimentary water services such as ocean kayaks, paddle boards and a small catamaran. A beautiful view and a quiet restful place. The public beach is beautiful. Since I am not a people person we avoided the beach between 10am-5pm as the whale tour excursions finished their day there. There is a great party atmosphere on the public beach for sure. The food was delicious and plentiful! Buffet nights for us were Thursday and Saturday. Lots of seafood and beautiful service. We did some at all four restaurants. Don Pablo was superior in its service, quality of food and presentation. When I go back I will book Don Pablo four times if possible so I could try all the menu options. The Brazilian restaurant Rodizio had great energy, an amazing signature drink and fantastic meat. The main desk permits you to exchange your large American bills for dollar bills. Which was great so that we could say thank you to all the amazing people who went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. If I could offer advise to those of you going: 1. Bring binoculars to view the amazing birds and whales off in the distance. 2. Bring a blow up noodle from the dollar store, thank you to Josie from Montreal for giving us hers! 3. Bring a pen to fill out the customs forms on the plane, at the airport and again on the plane. 4. You will NEED water shoes at the private beach, after the hurricane there are tons of broken seashells and an undertow so getting in and out of the water is a challenge. 5. Bring the provided umbrella to dinner as it might shower. The grounds are lush and honestly I felt like I was in the rain forest. We went for evening walks every night, there are NO BUGS...not one...now lots of little lizards but seriously no bugs. The grounds are a work out! If walking and hills are not your thing there is provided transportation. I also loved the fact that the greeting hostess at the buffet and every restaurant provided each guest with hand sanitizer. Five stars, an amazing experience, thank you!
