Best Hotel ever!!!!!!

This was without a shadow of doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Butler service, balcony Jacuzzi, two TV's in our room, constantly stocked fridge, cleaned room daily, two sofas, four poster bed etc. etc.! We stopped in the beach front villa and the sea literally lapped at our front door!!!! The food was excellent, I had a champagne/caviar and salmon with scrambled egg breakfast every day! The other meal times was also of the same calibre. Staff were lovely, they new your drink order every time you went to the bar! The entertainment was good and all on your own little desert island!!! We will visit again without doubt!! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED LOCATION AND RESORT!!!!!!More

John T,

Our 21 Yrs Wedding Anniversary

It is a beautiful Adult Hotel, nice and quite. But Butler we had was excellent Mr. Kenworth took very good care of us. Be got the pretty villa, right on the beach and a Jacuzzi in the front porch. the Brazilian Restaurant was , the main waiter was not nice food took 1 hour. The Staff was very very friendly. But we ran into problems in the room. The towels were not to clean one off them has lipstick mark on it red and my comforter also has lipstick on it. The main thing to watch out is the safe in the room. I has my purse in my safe with my cash in a envelope with $400.00 dollars in it. when I got back home I check my purse after 3 day I left the Hotel, and my money was missing. I have no Idea how they did this but they did. So please watch out. Were a pair of gloves just incase they have a way to check your prints, when you enter your Pin. So Please be careful.More

The most amazing hotel and holiday i have ever had!

Right firstly i have to say this place is truly the most incredible place i have ever stayed in my whole life. We got there tired and warm as it was around 8 hours flight, 4 hours coach journey and then a 30 minute wait for the boat (i need to point out that if the boat leaves when you arrive there not being rude or un-helpful they ferry the workers to and from the hotel at specific times and they have to be approved to let passengers on by the security) we went straight to our room and ordered room service and bed - if you want room service you need to remember how large the hotel is and that it's probably going to take around an hour to get to you. For the first few days we stayed in the Superior Junior Suite which is truly beautiful, it was a 2 minute walk to the pool and the restaurant and a 5 minute walk to the main building (if you feeling lazy you can get a golf cart taxi) are mini bar was re-stocked daily and we wrote a note in the fridge saying we only liked Bacardi and they accommodated that. Then on the Wednesday due to the fact it was my Boyfriends birthday they upgraded us to the Deluxe Junior Suite (it has an outdoor Jacuzzi) i have to point out it states you get a hammock but you don't due to health and safety, hammocks are only provided on the beach villers. With this room you get a butler service (he is amazing) and pillow service and a wake up breakfast (if ordered) There are 2 beaches - the private one which is gorge, it has entertainment and bars (i recommend the cocoloco) and a public beach - we went to the public beach once and wouldn't go again as we where harassed by the guys selling stuff, one grabbed my bag but security where on them like a hot rash and they didn't get away with it. The pools are great but reserve your seat with a towel by 9am or you getting the bad seats in the back with the tree's. The food is lovely, breakfast is nicest at the main building and lunch is nicest at Rodizio - make sure to book your restaurant tables on the first night via the app as they go pretty quick, they give you wine lists but you don't have to order from there, if you ask for house wine or any other drink it's free. The food in all the restraunts is beautiful (i recommend the whole lobster) For my boyfriends birthday we got a cake - room upgrade - meal at don pablo - banners and balloons and a jacuzzi made up for when we got back from dinner (all thanks to Anna and the butler who where fantastic) The language barrier is a little tough - they speak English well but we got by on the little Spainish we know and that helped alot. I would recommend going for 2 weeks instead of 1 as there's alot of travelling and alot to do I would also recommend booking the excursions through thomson before hand - the zipline is INCREDIBLE and the horse riding one is great too. All in all we had an amazing time, met some really great people and the best service you could ask for! WAY more then a 5* hotel! paradise in it's best.More


Amazing! A Paradise

"My spouse and I came back in June after spending two weeks at the Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado Don Pablo Collection The hotel is amazing! and the site a paradise! There is nothing more to want when you stay at this hotel Everyone is so helpful and friendly. They can't do enough for you!!!! Everything was perfect! The service was outstanding from the moment we arrived to the day we left. We could not be more pleased with the staff, we were pampered by everyone! If there was anything we wanted we got it. The food was beyond our expectations from the buffet with a huge amount of food variety to the ‘’a la carte’’ restaurants. The Don Pablo, the Portofino, the Mediterranean and the new Rodizio Every dish was excellent and the service outstanding The Don Pablo was our favorite!! Rooms were superb, spotless and clean to an exceptional standard, linens were top quality and mini bar filled each day to whatever request we asked our maid at the start of the holiday. Great work! No fault what so ever, maids left beautiful arrangements with the towels which was a nice, perfumed pillows were delivered every night during the turndown service. Our Butlers Rocked! we saw them several times during our stay. They always had a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we got back to our room before dinner with a bubble bath dotted with petals. I booked the Spa for a day this was also excellent. The beaches are beautiful and natural with plenty of palapas, This hotel is definitely a 5 stars All Inclusive experience. A huge thank you to all the staff at this hotel. The service is what makes this resort - the people were amazing. They were super friendly and extremely helpful. Special thanks go to Florencio Lorente, Jose Luis Rodriguez and their team extremely professional and truly wonderful people. From the guest services: Frantz and Licelot From the restaurant Don Pablo: Raymundo, Jesus, Nicole, Eudy, Melissa, Raoul and Alex thank you so much !!! From the buffet: Mercedes, Elisandra From the animation team: Trinida Please forgive us if we missed anybody a big hug!!! Manon and RicardoMore

A fantastic resort

The Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado Don Pablo Collection is a truly exceptional experience. It is rare that you find somewhere that works absolutely perfectly... but this is one. Although you have looked at all the pictures, and read the reviews, nothing quite prepares you for how truly beautiful this resort, on its own island, is. Granted the coach journey from Puerto Plata is long (3.5 hours) followed by a 15 minute boat ride but every minute of that is worth the effort. The resort promotes itself as being relaxed and laid back and it achieves this through fantastic organisation. The staff are all, without exception, delightful. They are genuinely welcoming and frequently ask if there is anything they can do to make your stay even better. If you go with a holiday company, the reps don’t appear to explain the resort to you. Much better to ask the hotel staff. Unlike most hotels which are easy in terms of layout, this one spreads across the island with a main block of rooms and the buffet and bar in one part and other smaller villas and bungalows spread across the area. There are three separate pools as well as the gorgeous beaches. However, the hotel has numerous golf buggies designed to give you a lift to wherever you want to go so you never really have to make much of an effort. The hotel’s main beach is truly stunning. White sand, shady palms and turquoise water that laps the beach. A true tropical paradise. When seaweed comes in, there is an army of people clearing it away in the mornings and the beach, and the sunbeds are cleaned each day. These are all spread out so plenty of space between them and there was never a shortage of beds, or shade, either around the beach or the pools. Towels were always available. In terms of the bars, the lobby and terrace bars were delightful, particularly in the evenings whereas the beach bar and pool bars were always avalable during the day. Staff would regularly ask if you wanted drinks and, after a few days, brought your usual drinks over without being asked! The lobby and terrace bars are open until around 11.30 at night and for the first few days we were curious as to why nothing was open after that. However, we discovered that a different beach bar, away from the hotel, opened late and stayed open to 2am for those who wanted a longer evening. Evening entertainment was appropriately fairly low-key but the animation team did a great job. And so to food. This, too, was terrific. There was a buffet and four a la carte restaurants which you could book as often as you wanted. All were wonderful. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary while we were there and mentioned it to the staff. Firstly, our beautiful room and four poster bed were decorated with happy anniversary balloons and petals and the Don Pablo restaurant gave us a gorgeous Happy Anniversary cake for dessert. We really did feel very special. We didn’t do any of the trips offered - to be honest we really didn’t want to leave our little island paradise longer than we had to. In summary, the hotel is remarkable in so many ways, and, unusually, much better than the publicity brochures. We have travelled extensively and this is the best all-inclusive we have ever experience.... so much so, we’ve already booked to go back next year.More
