I have a PDF which has layers in it which are shown in Adobe Reader (see attachment). However, the layers are not shown properly in Illustrator. Does anyone know how to workout what is wrong with the PDF or the Illustrator setup?

PDF layers cannot be compared to Illustrator layers. They work differently.

Illustrator cannot convert them.
