This trip is on my top 5 trips ever taken in the Caribbean. We took Air Canada and took just under 3 hr 45 minutes to get to Samana Airport. Took 4 hrs 10 minutes from Samana back to Toronto Airport.. Very well organized. Very small but nice airport.(Samana) Once we got our luggage we found the Air Canada rep. and he told him what Resort we were at and he told us what bus to get on. We watched our luggage being loaded before we go on the bus. Yes it is over 90 minutes from Airport to this Adults only Resort which includes 10 minute Boat Ride. We stopped after 5 -10 minutes to pickup Presidente Beer. I was expecting the usual can however you will be paying $5.00 for bottle and I mean Bottle of beer. Definitely worth the $5.00 US. I will post a picture Once we reached our destination we watched our luggage being unloaded. We went into a building and checked in to receive our room number/ Room Key. Once that was done we showed the people our luggage which they tagged our room number and put on the boat. There were around 25 people to get on the boat.. Once docked you get off and climb a bit of a hill to the main lobby building. They would tell you where your room is and the the bell boy would arrive to your room with your luggage. Our room the Superior was in the Main Building on the 5th floor. Elevator only goes to 4 so you have no choice but to walk up 1 flight of stairs. Elevator was out of service for 3 days so we had to walk up and down 5 flights of stairs. Needed the exercise anyways with all the food and drinks. Room 512 was ok and balcony was an A frame shape. Not in the room that much anyways. (will post pictures) We had a couple of issues.. One night is poured rain and the next morning I found a bit of water on the floor. Make sure you take ear plugs. I found the walls to be thin. The toilet did not have a lot of pressure so we had to call for maintainance twice because toilet plugged. Only took 10 minutes both times for someone to show up.. On the last night I was looking forward to using the whirlpool tub. Took 1/2 hour just to fill the water above the jets and than when I pressed the button. Nothing happened. What a big disappointment.. The Mini Fridge was stocked everyday what ever you use.. 2 cans of beer, 1 bottle of club soda, 1 7up, 1 reg & diet pepsi and 1 small bag of Lays chips plus bottled water and mini bottles of booze (vodka, rum, scotch There is a walk in closet not a lot of hangers though. I found the Kingsize bed Comfortable. Also a umbrella in the Walk in closet. 2 pair of slippers which you can take home. There are also 2 robes to use only. (Cant take these home or they will charge you) There are 2 beach towels on the bed when you arrive. On the last day when you hand them in before 5;00pm you will receive a card. Food- Excellent!!! Something for everyone. ORQUIDEA -Buffet - Breakfast at 7;00am. Dinner - Different every day of the week Mon-Mexican, Tue - Spanish, Wed-Italian, Thur-Gala (Don't miss this), Fri-Dominican, Sat-International, Sun-Oriental. We ate at all 4 al la carte- Rodizio- by the pool - Brazilian- If you love meat you have to go. DonPablo - Gourmet, Portofino-Italian (my Favourite), Mediterraean - both by Beach pool which you can take the elevator. The 1st day or 2 we kept taking the long way and finally realized there is a short cut from the Main building. Go to the 3 rd floor which takes you out to Don Pablo Restaurant and a short cut to the 1 pool with Rodizo rest. and further walk down the path to the elevator which take you to the other pool and beach. There is another pool which is just a big bubble pool but never saw anyone use it. Beaches - They are small however beautiful. One side is pretty rough and never saw anyone swimming but steps away to the other side is more calm unless it is very windy. And there was a couple of days it was very windy. We saw a wedding down at the beach a british couple with their families. Was probably the most windy day and no sun but did not rain. ( will post pictures) I tried to snorkel but water was a bit cloudy because of the waves. Got caught off guard by this fish. Looked like a 2 foot Angel fish. Don't know what it was and than 2 or more surround me. There is coral and shells so be careful. Now there is another beach which you can go to but also the public which come from off shore. My husband and I went over to see early in the morning before anyone was there. (will post pictures) As for night life, not much worth seeing. Plus some people still smoke which I cannot be around. There are excursions but we did not do any. Zip Lining - Walk the plank off a 600 ft line and then 11 more lines. A park/cave excursion. Can't remember the 3rd. Will be going back again some day!!!!

Lovely holiday but lacking the wow factor for us

We travelled with Thompson on their dreamliner, nothing special but an ok journey although delayed. We went on the coach transfer (which was a nice new style Thompson coach) 5 hours later we got to the boat! It didn't go to any other hotels, there was just so much traffic, it seemed to last forever not fun if you get travel sickness! Arriving at the hotel around 10.30pm they had kept the restaurant open we all ate in the buffet restaurant and went to bed! We stayed in a Junior suite in the main building, I had emailed the hotel prior to us arriving asking for a sea view, which we did get. We loved the room it was a good size, massive bed and lovely bathroom. Mini bar stocked with fizzy drinks, local beer, miniature spirits and 1 packet of crisps. As our room was facing over the buffet outside dining and entertainment area, it was noisy in the evening, but entertainment finished at 11pm latest anyway it did not bother us. We went to the private beach for the first few days, you don't need to get to the beach really early for a sun bed there was plenty. We were surprised that the beach wasn't raked everyday, as there was lots of sticks etc everywhere, we have been to many resorts that always do this. Nothing really to look at snorkelling wise. We made use of the free water equipment hire, using the canoes and paddle board. We canoed the whole way round the island! The public beach wasn't busy and we really liked it, excellent snorkelling, lots of lovely fish and much calmer and clearer waters, and to the left was a small living coral reef. Very beautiful scenery. The one major let down was the beach was dirty lots of rubbish on the sand cups, bottles etc which really spoilt it such a shame, its not maintained by the hotel so has no toilet facilities and you can't use all inclusive at the bar. All the pools were great too, although people were reserving sun beds very early! Most staff were so friendly and they love it when you try and reply in Spanish. Alberto was a top guy! Food was lovely in the buffet, the only got to eat in one al a carte restaurant as the other two were fully booked, this was disappointing, we found out that guests had made reservations before they arrived by emailing the hotel prior and getting their room and reservation numbers so they could book with the app. Download it if you can. There is wifi in all main areas like the lobby and in every room, Its very slow around 5pm onwards. Service is slow but does come with a smile! We found it very odd that you aren't offered drinks around the pool or at the beach, you have to get them yourselves, which isn't a major problem but for a 5* resort isnt what we expected. Also the ladies toilets by the beach/ pool were awful a lot of the time, they stank and were often flooded. The coach (not a nice one, an old one with a cracked windscreen and very tight for space) transfer back to the airport wasn't quite as long around 4 hours but it did detour to collect passengers from 3 other hotels! We arrived only 5 mins later than the people who took a taxi even though we left at the same time, their faces were a picture! All in all this is a lovely hotel and we had an amazing time but with the awful transfer time and nothing that majorly stood out to us as outstanding we are unlikely to return to Cayo Levantado. I can see why people do return year after year but we will try some where else in the future. Our tips. Wifi is much faster in the morning when most people are at the beach etc. We could FaceTime home without any problems. If you reserve your seating on the Dreamliner row 39 is great if your a couple. The main pool is quieter and its easier to get a sun bed. You need to ask for your drinks etc, don't ask and you wont get (most of the time) Ask for the premium spirits else you will get house vodka etc. Cant think of anything else any questions feel free to message us More>

Such a shame that our holiday gone so quick! Wish to stay for a bit longer in this small paradise. The Island is really tidy and green - plenty of flowers and palm trees. Staff really keep eye on them. A lots of entertainment like games in the beach, night show or beach party. Need to say big THANK to Jacqueline, Jhuan and Carlos for making our stay so unforgettable. Always full of energy and smile:) Also thanks for Miguel, Manuel, Luis, Pamela and Yamilet. In general for everyone! Wish my memory was better to remember all of the names;) Our rooms were tidy and food delicious. Couldn't ask for more. Except longer stay:D Extremely recommended to every amigos! More>

Second Visit!

We have been back home for a while and we are missing both the warmth of the sun and the warmth of all the staff at the hotel. We visited the hotel last year but unusually, never wrote a review. This year we went back to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We had a junior suite on the third floor in the main building with a huge balcony overlooking the sea and gardens. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. Thre is a minibar with spirits and beers and a flat screen tv with limited channels. The lighting, as others have mentioned, leaves a little to be desired as it is very dim. The bed is huge and a choice of pillows is available. When we got back to our room on our anniversary it had been decorated with an anniversary sash across the four poster bed and balloons above headboard. We find that the quality, quantity and variety of the food at the buffet is excellent so you definitely will not be going hungry! Start the day with a glass or two of Cava or a Bloody mary and then a breakfast, cooked or continental. Eggs cooked as you like, fruit juices and pastries. We did eat in the Don Pedro a la carte on two occasions and the Rodizio once. The Don Pedro restaurant gave us a decorated table and a nice cake on our anniversary night. The fillet mignon was excellent! We tend to use the quiet pool in the morning, lunch at the beach restaurant and then spend the afternoon on the beach. Sunbeds were always available at all locations although if you wanted a cabana type shade at the upper pool you neede to be there early. Although the resort was fairly full it didn't appear to be busy. Friends who have seen our photos of the gardens have asked us if there was anybody else there as it seems empty! The gardens are beauiful and very well tended. I'll finish now otherwise this will turn into a book. In our opinion this is a beautiful resort made all the better for the staff. For Brits, the journey to and from the airport is a bit of a pain but once you're there , its well worth it, Again, many thanks to all the staff at the hotel who made our Anniversary holiday so wonderful.
