    Location 8.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the island of Cayo Levantado, southeast of the Samana peninsula, a perfect place for whale-watching from January to March. The hotel is located 3 miles from the town of Samana and 31 miles from the new airport at Samana. For transfers, plan about an 1 hour.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    All 196 rooms are spacious, well appointed and tastefully decorated, with individual air conditioning with a fan, if you please. The lodgings are arranged into 81 junior suites located in the main three-storey building, 106 superior junior suites and 9 villas. Here, it's like in a McDonalds, everything is king size: the bed is huge, of course but also the satellite TV, the safe ($ 4 per day), the refrigerator (equipped with a kit for tea and coffee) and the terrace which overlooks the sea, in 90% of the rooms. The remaining 10% of the rooms overlook the tropical garden. A large desk invites you to work in comfort, there is a telephone with fax line and Internet access, but remember that you are on holiday! For the cocktail hour, invite your friends and go to the lounge, where there are comfortable sofas to sit on. The satellite television broadcasts some forty channels, but can't you do without it for once? In the bathroom: personal skin care products are carefully arranged next to a double sink. The bathroom in each room has a Jacuzzi bathtub and a separate shower, bathrobes, slippers, a hair dryer - this is the life of a king! In the villas, you can choose to enjoy a bubble bath in the bathroom or directly on the terrace.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The boat dock is located on the southwest of the island of Cayo Levantado, accessible after crossing the magnificent public beach located on the northwest of the island. Open since December 2006, the Gran Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado consists of several single-storey buildings on the island of Cayo Levantado, housing a total of 196 rooms. The main building has three floors with an elevator and a large fancy lobby, a bar, the gourmet restaurant, and the junior suites are situated in it. The island is quite large and you can commute between the various points of interest by buggy, if you don't like walking. Feel complete relaxation at the Bahia Spa, where lovely masseuses will pamper you with various anti-stress treatments. The bravest can do some jogging in the morning on the jogging circuit. Both swimming pools are really huge, connected by a bridge and housing an islet in the middle. Deckchairs with mattresses, showers, sunshades in pergola style, ping pong table, everything to make sure your bathing goes smoothly.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    This "all inclusive" hotel provides three restaurants that serve a la carte for dinner, with a reservation, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (seafood, Mediterranean and gourmet). The Orquidea restaurant serves buffet style, and varies its culinary themes every night (Dominican, oriental, Mexican, American, Spanish and international). The dishes are delicious and varied, great cuisine! The Orquidea serves an excellent breakfast (from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.), lunch (from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.) and dinner (from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.). The snack buffet "Las Caracolas" serves light meals from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and you can sample cocktails in the four bars of the complex (the pool bar, the snack bar, the lobby bar and the beach bar).

    Beach 9.20 /10

    The island of Cayo Levantado has two private beaches reserved for the hotel's guests and a public beach. The beaches are equipped with plastic deckchairs and showers. You can order your favourite cocktails and drinks while lying quietly on your chaise lounge in the shade of a coconut tree: you will be served. The water is crystal clear and of infinite beauty and you will not yearn for anything there! The beach is supervised and displays a flag to indicate the level of danger for swimmers. Scan the horizon, with a little luck, you will see the spout of a whale which migrates in these waters from January to March.

    To know

    A brand new hotel opened in 2006, the Gran Bahia Principe Cayo belongs to the Spanish chain, Gran Bahia Principe. The building is situated on a small heavenly island which can be reached within ten minutes by boat. Internet is available for free. Room service is available 24 hours a day. Every Sunday evening, a beach party is held and enlivens the atmosphere. Since the resort is particularly vast, two buggies will take you to the various facilities of the hotel.

    A lodging tip:

    The master suites and villas, more expensive but more spacious and better equipped, have a majordomo service. The rooms enjoying the best view are the junior suites, located on the third floor of the main building: namely rooms 201 and 202.

        Lugar precioso, ideal para disfrutar en pareja. Hotel tranquilo y sitio paradisiaco. Las habitaciones son espectaculares, con jacuzzi. Para un sitio tan ideal, la comida se quedó pobre.

      • Advantages

        Lugar tranquilo y aislado. No es un hotel masificado de gente. Lugar precioso.

      • Disavantages

        No es un lugar para grupos que busquen fiesta. Tienen que mejorar en la comida.
