The very best in travel has just been announced. TripAdvisor has once again released it’s Travellers’ Choice Awards and it’s as juicy as always. There are categories for best restaurants, best destinations, best beaches, landmarks, attractions and more – and you can also search by region.

I was instantly drawn to the category of best all-inclusive resorts (hello Carribean vacation!), beautiful white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters. This year’s Carribean All-Inclusive Winner is the Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado (Don Pablo Collection) located on Isla de Cayo Levantado, in the bay of Samaná , in sunny Dominican Republic.

Cayo Levantado is a small island (2.4km circumference) and this hotel is the only hotel on the island. The hotel has 268 rooms, 5 restaurants, 6 bars and plenty of things to do (spa day anyone?), or just relax on the white sandy beach.

Here’s the direct link to the hotel:

You’ll love it because…

• Because it’s located on an exclusive island in the Samaná paradise with dream beaches.
• Because of their excellent service, the most luxurious rooms you can imagine and the exclusive Don Pablo Collection seal.
• Because of the tranquility that you’ll find on the island, as an Adults Only hotel it’s  perfect for couples who want to share an unforgettable experience.
