Cayo Levantado All-Inclusive Resort, Dominican Republic

By admin May3,2024

There are ten different room types available at Cayo Levantado, starting with a Junior Suite. We were booked into 1 bedroom bay view villa, which is an 840 square foot room that includes a bedroom (with either a small juliet balcony or a large sitting area), bathroom with double vanity, shower, closet and separate toilet room, separate living room and patio overlooking the bay through the foliage with a small plunge pool, 2 chaise lounges and a dinette. We loved the room’s location as it was fairly central to everything you need on property as well as the layout. As I was working, it’s helpful to have the separate living room to enjoy the view while in the air conditioning. The plunge pool is a nice touch for the hot days, though it is covered and not heated so it can be very brisk.

All the rooms feature similar amenities, including a selection of Dominican rums, some juices and beers. The minibar did feel a bit lacking as there were no snacks and no mixers for the rums so we do hope they include some additional minibar items in the future.

The bathrooms feature Perricone MD products for the shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The lotion is a local made coconut lotion that was lovely, though it was never replaced during our stay. That being said, we love the focus on incorporating local products into the room amenities to provide guests with a real sense of place.

The hotel is recently renovated so there are some finicky things that you may find. For example, they have a big focus on eco-friendliness and energy conservation so all the rooms run on a sensor. If you take a call for example, or are just watching TV, you may find yourself suddenly in the dark with no A/C when the power shuts off after 10 minutes. We inquired about setting this for a timer longer than 10 minutes, but the staff weren’t able to sort it out. It appears that the sensor in the bedroom is more sensitive and it did not turn off the air at night, but in the living room, it was almost impossible to keep the power on when working or simply sitting there. We hope this is something they can fine tune in the future, for the suites in particular.

If you are looking at deciding on a room type, I would rank them as follows:

  1. Beachfront villa

If I were to book the property again, I would book a beachfront villa. These rooms feature a sunken living room with access to the patio and plunge pool, bed area connected to the bathroom as well as an exterior shower and interior shower. The layout and decor in this room is absolutely beautiful and the unobstructed views and access to the beach make this our favorite in terms of access and location.

  1. Sea view junior suite with pool

These rooms have some of the best unobstructed views on property. The balconies are spacious and the addition of the plunge pool is a great treat. The location of these rooms are excellent as many sit near the beach area, making it very convenient for access to restaurants and the beach.

  1. 1 bedroom bay view villa

If you are looking for extra space, then this is a great choice. Having a separate living room and bedroom is excellent, particularly if you are planning on working or just have a lot of luggage. The location of these villas is also fairly central

  1. Sea view junior suite

If you are on a budget and plan to spend most of your time exploring the property, I would book the sea view junior suite. These rooms are located primarily in the main tower and have gorgeous views and access to the lobby. They are more budget friendly than the higher categories but still afford the same amenities and facilities as the higher tier rooms.

Overall, the rooms are nicely refreshed and feature fantastic furnishings and amenities. With a more consistent minibar and focus on fine tuning the in-room technology, we have no doubt they will nail the guest experience.
