Wedding Trip
REBECCA C.
Dec 19 2012
We really didn't know what to expect, since this was our first trip to DR. I just knew we wanted a quiet, relaxing and enjoyable vacation and wedding. The resort and resort staff (including our wedding coordinator) far exceeded any expectations we had. The resort was absolutely beautiful and the grounds were impecably mantained. The resort staff was attentive and the service was exceptional. We are already looking at our calendars next year for a second trip :)

The Beach Villa is everything you would expect. Big, beautiful and very close to the beach, pool and food. The nicest room/villa we have ever stayed in to date. However, there didnt appear to be hot/warm water for the patio Jacuzzi? There was a bit of a language barrier but we were able to get by. Food was average but they make a good effort to change it up at dinner. Specialty restaurants were better. Entertainment was fair most of the time but it was the workers putting on some of the shows and I would give them an A for effort. If you are looking to just relax and sit by the pool or on the beach this is the perfect place. If you fly into any Airport other than Samana expect to have a 2-3 HOUR cab ride to the pier. The place was clean and the grounds well taken care of.

Relaxing, Private and Beautiful

I took my mother on her very first all inclusive Caribbean vacation. This resort was recommended as something special for this occasion. I’m happy with our choice. My mother is a quiet lady and this place was more private than other resorts and adults only was a plus. The staff there are so very nice and helpful in every way. There was never a problem finding a seat at the beach. In my opinion, this would not be the resort to choose if you wanted to do several excursions but if you want relaxing in the sun with delicious drinks, this one is for you. It’s on Bacardi Island where Bacardi rum ads were filmed in the 80s. The food wasn’t the best I’ve ever had but it was not bad. You won’t go hungry. I didn’t like one staff member who was trying to get us to join the privileged club. He was too persistent. Everyone else was awesome. Always service with a smile. The grounds are beautiful and so are the beaches.

Flight - faultless, upgraded to premium club... Definatley worth it , just for the private lounge and day before baggage drop... Oh and the food and drink was excellent Arrival and transfer - effortless arrival, yes it's 4.5 hours on a coach, but see it was a free excursion ... It's a great leveller for when you arrive at Cayo Levantado Island and hotel - faultless transfer from the mainland , arrived on island at 10pm and expected cold meat and cheese... Could not be more wrong, lobster and hot food was waiting First few days - amazing, amazing ,amazing. The staff are so attentive and even the cleaners have an attention to detail that put any hotel I have stayed in to shame Food... "Excellente", no problem with booking A La Carte Drinks... Superb Room service... Had breakfast in our villa (18) , only took 15 minutes to arrive Beach and pool ... Beach is busy. ,,but the upper pools are nice and chilled, not had any probs getting seats or cabanas Shows Excellent,let yourself enjoy them , the animation team work so hard Beach bar after 11pm- rum does make you a pirate and the music is do infectious Full review when we leave on the 23rd

Post hurricane, still brilliant

Sadly there was some damage and water staining, so our promised room was not available, oh dear back to 4204, lovely! Yes its a 24 7 resort so maintenance iust gets done, but the hotel was not full, so it was not a problem. As always usual fantastic staff, food, drink, and facilities. We have been a number of times luckily, and standards have not slipped , Siggy, Lessa and Euris ensure everything is dealt with, i just hope in March that we are again relaxed in the style we are accostomed too. We have met lovely people over the years and some of them tourists. It is a truly relaxing place where nothing is too much trouble. It rained, heavily, whilst we were there but it was post hurricane and the rainy season, but still warm and fresh. Gala night is a must if you like fish, we sit and giggle at people wrestling wigh ckaws and shells whilst trying to look dignified, don pablos, as lovely as ever as was med and italian, als meat emporium, rodizios, had great quality meat for those who wish to give the colon a thorough work out, and exercise the liver. Gardens and pools clean as a whistle, beach cleaned by the sand squadron, as the rough weather putalot of debris on the beach. So March is waiting, i cannot wait !

Achieved the highest level of service, location and accommodations

We stayed as (2) couples in (2) separate rooms. This facility has an amazing location including beautiful beaches, pools, rooms, grounds and most of all people. The staff of this facility matched its perfect setting. They were concerned of every detail of our stay. They worked tirelessly to accommodate all needs while keeping our experience private and of VIP care. We enjoyed food that has surpassed all other previous all-inclusive stays (8). Beaches that appear to represent a classic Caribbean dream. Beverages are made from high quality selections. The rooms were large, clean, continuously serviced and we enjoyed a wonderful view of the oceanfront through a beautiful canopy of trees/plant life. We were in villa 61XX. Intimate feel with all the accommodations of a massive resort. Thank you to so many..... Jesus, Johnathon, Erickson, Nicheala, Emmanuel .......

Fantastic week at BP Cayo Levantado

We just spent a week there for New Year's (Dec 30-Jan6) and REALLY enjoyed this resort. We are a 50s-something couple and have travelled to many all-inclusives throughout Caribbean and Mexico over the last 15 years with and without our kids. I had my eye on this resort for the last few years and once I found out that it's going family in May, I thought to book it. Not disappointed. Ignore the picky, extreme reviews of this place. No, it's not perfect for an all inclusive, but pretty close. We upgraded to a Junior Suite Superior (2nd floor building 5) and it was spectacular. Unless you want a beach villa or must have a jacuzzi on the balcony, this is the room for you. We had a great view of the ocean framed by jungle foliage. It was really lovely and absolutely private. No onlookers from either side. My husband sat out there in his birthday suit with his favourite cigar each day. Quiet and private. Room very well stocked and discreet maid service each day. Couldn't be happier with the accommodations. Resort was only about 1/2 full which I couldn't figure out, especially for New Year's week. But we were happy about this. Always beach and pool chairs avail. Drink service is absolutely exceptional for both beach and pool. Very attentive staff who remember past orders with a smile. Restaurant food was the best we've experienced in buffet and theme restaurants and we've been to Secrets, Sandals and Palace resorts. Exceptional for an all inclusive. We had smoked salmon twice/day. Buffet is smaller than most AI resorts but the quality was better and honestly we couldn't have wanted anything more and we’re foodies. Evening restaurants were superb meals, with the exception of the Mediterranean restaurant. Perhaps just what I ordered, but nothing special. I'm OK with that given the other meals we had. Service at all was top notch. We especially liked Georgina in the buffet in the mornings. What I found with the staff throughout this resort (likely the best trained I've experienced) is their attention to detail. They are very observant and don't need management prompting them. Rarely we had to wait for anything. Most speak English and other European languages conversationally and quite frankly what more do you need? Those who complain about lack of fluency are really far too picky. It's not the US. We had a concierge butler, Marcos, and he was great. Again, very conscientious and attention to detail, anticipating what customers would like. But honestly I could do everything/order what I wanted, including restaurant reservations with the downloadable app. Bar staff and alcohol variety: for the most part great. No complaints. Quality of beer and liquor is really top notch, HOWEVER, the house wine really leaves a lot to be desired. And this is common throughout all inclusives in the Dominican. Really cheap Spanish wine. And I like Spanish wines. I drink white but the house white was undrinkable. Red not much better. Rosee a little better. The sparkling for NYE was horrid. We met a lovely couple from Paris who own a restaurant there and I asked him about the wine -- he was almost non-communicative at that point. I realize that it's not wise from a business perspective to be offering high end Californian, French and Spanish wines but c'mon, for the price of this resort, the wine quality really needs to come up. I couldn't drink it and I'm a non-picky Canadian. And it did NOT entice me buy from the wine menu. On the other hand, liquors and beer are more than acceptable, enjoyable. Tanqueray, Johnny Walker, Crown Royal, Skyy vodka ... All good. And if staff were not familiar with a drink request (chocolate martini for example), they found the recipe online. Best one I ever had. What we particularly liked about the resort is the chill atmosphere. It's not (now) a party resort and that's OK at least for us. We wanted couple connect time and it was perfect. The evening shows are predictable and like most other resorts. All good. Although I really think the entire Caribbean needs to retire Michael Jackson and let him rest in peace. Redundant and tired. I'd like to see a Bruno Mars show instead!!! Hmmm there’s a trendy idea… My few suggestions for management: 1. Music throughout the resort needs attention. We heard Marc Anthony's greatest (3) hits at least 2 X per day for 7 days at the beach pool restaurant. A 1 hour loop of the same music over and over again everyday all day is not acceptable. Also at the Italian restaurant one night (food excellent by the way), it was downloaded TV car commercial music. Very, very strange. Management, set the mood -- chill buddha bar music around the pool in the morning and then ramp it up it with some mixed Caribbean/Dominican vibes for the rest of the day. Spotify would help you in this regard. We heard some great jazz at the Med restaurant one night. Very welcome from people from Europe and North & South America. But quite frankly that was as far as it went. Also in the buffet, the same 30 min loop of British Christmas hits after January 1. Please... Play local. Because that's what we want to hear. We're trying to get away from the incessant club beat that our teens/ kids play at home (the reverberating BOOM BOOM BOOM), but unfortunately, that's what started playing throughout the lower resort at 11:45 each day for beach aerobics. The SAME songs for 7 days straight, everywhere. Again, I'm sure that aerobics can be lead successfully with some great 80s and 90s workout hits. CHANGE IT UP!!! Really, many people would start vacating their beach chairs when it inevitably started up late morning every day. OK, all that said, it is a very special resort and it is the first resort in 15 years that we would go back to, but not if it's changing to the family option. Don't understand this business decision. Finally, I want to emphasize that the staff and quality/diversity of food are what make this resort exceptional. Big difference from the other resorts we've stayed at, even Secrets and Sandals. Well done Bahia Principe.
