Very relaxing vacation, beach and pools were the highlight of the place. I loved the island feel and views from all over. Buffet food was pretty good and restaurants were decent.

The beach is nice, but like the beaches I've seen along the north coast of D.R. not always that clean. Both human and natural debris is always around. The chairs are a bit old & mildewy, but plenty were available. The water was a bit...More

Lovely soft sand and beautiful clear water. No hassle from locals as we made our way from the only hotel on the island. Sun beds bit old.

It is about 1 hour from Samana airport, if that is where you are flying into.
Does anyone out there know if Bacardi Island/Cayo Levantado still offer the sea lion experience?

We went in September 2016 and heard nothing about sea lion experiences, unfortunately.
