The DEAL is ON... need your help to decide!

The DEAL is ON in this side of the pond, but i would like your personal advise on with. My budget is good for both, i only want to know the one YOU would choose.

a) GBP Ambar for 1.884,00€ with taxes for two

or

b) GBP Cayo Levantado for 1.990,00€ with taxes for two

Many Thanks in advance!

My choice would be Cayo Levantado because I have always wanted to try that resort and I have already been to the Ambar :-)

If I had a hubby hands down it would be Cayo Leventado. That place looks amazing but not suitable for my daughter and I.

I haven't stayed at either but Cayo Levantado sure looks intriguing.

I would most certainly pick Cayo Leventado. We were at the Cayacoa in Jan and took a side trip to Bacardi Island, which is the island Caya Leventado is on. It was one of the most beautiful white beaches I have ever seen. Samana is very very different to Punta Cana but absolutely beautiful. You will not be sorry you chose Cayo Leventado if you do

I too would pick Cayo Levantado, as it is on my wish list and I just haven't made it there yet.

I too would pick Cayo Levantado!!!! It's on my wish list!!!! Was very close to booking for our trip this year in may, but got a great deal for Cat Royal. Will be planing for next year.

Meet people during our trips who rate this resort.

We also have done GBP Ambar.

Good Luck.

Cayo Laventado would be my pick and is on my list as well!

We stayed at Ambar and had a wonderful time!

Just looked at the Cayo Laventado. I must be here with blinders on.

That looks like a totally different country. May have to look into it one day.

Looks kind of "zen" Is it?

I'd pick this also.

I'd take the Cayo Levantado as well. But I like peace and quiet. If you want to have more excitement, you may be better off at the Ambar. Also, you may want to look into how long the bus and boat ride is from the airport (it can be a bit long).

Thank You all for the honest opinions...

Cayo Levantado wins 100% of the votes i'm really impressed... So Cayo Levantado will be... For that price (+/- 1.400,00 USD for 2 persons) i'll book tomorrow to depart at June 28th... I cannot afford to loose this deal... Ambar can wait until 2012...
