Wow, this is as beautiful as it gets....So stunning. I was on the dive boat as my daughter was doing some diving and my son some snorkeling around this island and it is so damn beautiful.

Cayo Levantado is an amazing tiny island. The only hotel on the island is superb (see my review of Gran Bahia Cayo Levantado). The island it's self is stunning. You can take a free boat trip around the island (about 40 mins). If you go to Dom. Rep and get the chance to go over to Bacardi Island on a... More

Love Cayo Levantado. The Beach on el cayo is always an amazing time. White sand, clear water, Pineapple drinks! You can't go wrong.

We have stayed several times at this beautiful hotel, and can't believe it improves each time. The staff work extremely hard and can't do enough to ensure a great time is had. Can't wait to return for New Year

It was very nice, lots of little vendors and beautiful beach. Though be aware, everyone is trying to make a buck and its all about the tourism.

As part of a day-long trip to Samana, we spent two hours on Bacardi Island and were surprised to see the large number and variety of fish right off the public beach. We brought our own snorkel equipment, but there was also equipment for rent. The water was amazingly clear and calm. Spent about an hour following all of the... More
