Stopped as part of tour combined with Los Haitises Parque National (bit of a boat ride between the two!). Glad went in low season, would be packed otherwise and judging by other reviews we went at the right time. White sands, warm and clear water. Enjoyable way to spend the day. My advice, go in low season, only 15 minute... More

Very relaxing vacation, beach and pools were the highlight of the place. I loved the island feel and views from all over. Buffet food was pretty good and restaurants were decent.

Its a pretty Island, but not the best Island I been to in th DR. About 25 minutes from Cayacoa Hotel. We paid $35 to a boat to take us. The chairs at the Island are in need of a good cleaning and probably to be replaced. The people charge you between 2 to 5 dollars per chair which is... More

Stayed on Cayo Levantado Island at the Bahia Principe Resort, the beach is amazing! We did a beach party there 1 night, it was really cool all light up.

The beach is nice, but like the beaches I've seen along the north coast of D.R. not always that clean. Both human and natural debris is always around. The chairs are a bit old & mildewy, but plenty were available. The water was a bit wavy but useable. The vendors are too aggressive for my tastes, and as this was... More

Lovely soft sand and beautiful clear water. No hassle from locals as we made our way from the only hotel on the island. Sun beds bit old.

We have just come home from a very relaxing 2 week holiday to Cayo Levantado. The weather was excellent. Very hot with only 3 hours of rain on one day. The villa we had was very spacious and clean. The buffet food was excellent. A wide range to cater for all. The al a carte restaurants were not so good.... More
