Too pricey for what you get
Pam P,

Let's start with the positive: the beach is beautiful and private with lots of chairs and tables, the rooms were clean and the food was up to standard. We had one very helpful server during our stay Manaury, he went above and beyond to try to get us whatever we needed at meals. Now the things that need improvement (all of this is based on the price we paid for this resort as opposed to other resorts that I have stayed at for half the price with the same or better quality): -when we arived after a full day of air travel and a 45 minute bus ride, we were exhausted and starving. You are required to check in on the main island before boarding the boat to get to the resort. There were no drinks(other than warm bottles of water) or any sort of appetizers or snacks available to hold us over till we reached the resort. we had to stand in line to check in (there were at least 20 couples checking in at the same time) and then we had to wait for the boat to return after taking the first load of people to the resort because there was not enough room on the boat for all if us. I would say it took at least an hour and a half to check in and get over to the resort, all the while with nothing to eat or drink. I was expecting alot more for the price we paid. -when we checked into our room it was very nice and clean but I wasn't blown away ... it didnt even have a view of the ocean. I have stayed at resorts that were just as nice with a better view for far less money. Also, we got stuck in the room under the stairs and the supply closet for the cleaning staff was right outside our door, they were SO loud every morning, impossible to sleep in at all. -If you managed to sleep in at all you had to make sure that you were at the buffet or snack bar before 1030 or else there was NO FOOD AVAILABLE until noon. you could order room service anytime but I have never stayed at any resort that didn't have at least a snack bar open all day. the first morning we slept in we had to jump through hoops to get anyone to make us anything to eat, they wouldn'tn deliver room service to the snack bar and then I had to raise a big stink to get the snack bar kitchen staff to make something for us, I don't understand what the huge issue was. Also, don't try to take your food out of the snack bar area. A friend of mine was sitting at the pool chairs and I went over to eat my meal with her and I got reamed out by the manager. "MUCHO PROBLEMA" he kept saying to me about eating my food on a pool lounger RIGHT outside the snack bar. I don't understand what the problem was? I'm an adult and not going to be making a huge mess or anything. -the beach only had one tiny bar for the entire beach. Getting a drink on the beach was insane. If you were lucky enough to sit at a spot with a server you were okay, but trying to get a drink at the bar was at least a 10 minute process. -watersport equipment is all extremely old and worn out, wen took out the katamaran and could only get it to sail on one side because of all the holes in the sail. boogie boards were pretty much ready for the trash. -they NEVER had pool towels, THIS IS A BEACH RESORT!!! LOL -by the fourth day of our stay the front desk had conveniently run out of dollar bills to get change and never got anymore in for the remainder of our stay - the drinks at the disco were horrible if you were lucky enough to have the bartender even be there. He was often gone for so long that my husband would just go around the back of the bar and make our own drinks. All in all it was an enjoyable stay as we had great company with us but as for the resort itself, we will never be going again and I would definitely not recommend it for the price. I have stayed at comparable resorts for FAR less. It seemed like that they were more concerned about the silly little luxuries (like scents in the room and butler service) than they were about the important stuff like food availability and having clean pool towels

Nothing special

After reading so many fabulous reviews on Trip Advisor we thought we were in for the holiday of our dreams. After spending 2 weeks at this location my husband and I can only think that the people who reviewed have not travelled to many other places. We are not hgh maintenance travellers and understand things will be different then we have at home and usually embrace this. We have however found many other hotels for the same or less money throughout the Caribbean that truly deserve the 5 star rating and as a result have visited some of them more than once. We would give this a 3.5 to 4 star at the most. The grounds are stunning and well manicured but our overall experience factoring room furnishings, bed comfort, food quality, drink quality (agree with many other posts that alcohol is either watered down or not included in the drinks), spa services and the facilities overall left us with a feeling that we overpaid. Bahia seems to have a strong following of people who are happy with their service levels though so I don't anticipate they feel they need to make an effort to improve. We however won't return or recommend this location to others and would suggest you look at other options.

Renewal Of Vows On Paradise Island

My husband and I decided to renew our vows at this hotel as we have stayed in quite a few of the grand bahias and this one seemed extra special because of its location. We had our hopes set quite high as it was such a special occasion and we were not disappointed. The hotel was awesome for a start, we had kindly been upgraded which was pleasant surprise. The location was beautiful, breathtaking and romantic. The staff could not do enough for us, we really were blown away with the service and the amount of effort that all of the staff went to ensure we had a great stay. We loved the food, we went to all of the restaurants more than once and really enjoyed the cuisine. I'd like to say a massive thank you to Sharlin our wedding co-ordinater for organising our renewal so well and Indira who was my first contact. We Cannot rate this hotel enough. It was the best holiday we have ever had. THANK YOU XX

Absolutely magical!

I can't say enough about how beautiful Cayo Levantado is. Having traveled to many different resorts in the Caribbean including Punta Cana and many in Mexico this is by far this best vacation we've had. The staff are all truly amazing and genuinely friendly. The food was excellent at each of the buffets and a la carte restaurants, we were never hungry, thirsty or unsatisfied. We meet tons of great people and have made new friends we will stay in touch with the rest of our lives.

AMAZING vacation

We stayed in room 27101. It was beautiful. My brother stayed in one of the villas and I thought their room was awesome too. This property is very large, but the golf cart taxis are great! We have stayed at both small and large resorts. This one certainly did not disappoint. We ate at Don Pueblo two nights in a row, because the steak was just that delicious. The beach area was our favorite place. We normally are not beach people...love to look but never spend much time. The trees covering the chairs are perfect, because they make the heat tolerable. My family snorkeled every day for hours! The bartenders at the beach were so amazing----highly recommend a "bobby special"! This resort is absolute paradise. The only thing I did not enjoy from our trip was the 3 hour car ride from the airport to the resort. But that is not the resorts fault. Once we arrived, it was most certainly worth it!!!!
