Having just gotten off an 11 hour boat ride (one engine broke, that will be another review…), we were blessed beyond all belief to check into this little gem. It is actually not that little, but it was calm and beautiful and everyone was so nice to us that I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The room... More

Let me start by saying that this property is absolutely gorgeous! Rooms are spacious and the grounds and decor are stunning. It's truly a 5 star resort property! We enjoyed the beach as well as the grounds immensely. The problem with this place is the staff ... Or lack of. First of all no one speaks English, I understand this... More

My wife and I took a 6-day vacation to Casa Colonial over Easter break. Despite the positive reviews, I was wary that it was not going to be a great vacation as I worried it would be boring, especially compared to its all-inclusive neighbors. The boutique hotel itself is not a one-stop shop for excitement, mind you, and for that... More

My husband and I recently visited with 3 other couples. We purchased the ultimate getaway package, and it actually lived up to its name! The rooms were large and lovely, the staff was almost all amazing. We particularly enjoyed our waiter Ramon, who took care of our large party with care and kindness. The resort grounds were just lovely as... More

Positive: Phenomenal rooms - Not just good for DR but compares well with some of the nicest (and more expensive) places in the Caribbean. Bathroom was large and had a soaking tub and rain shower. Beds were large and comfortable. Boutique feel - attentive service, beautiful grounds, not at all crowded Food and drink are all top notch as well... More

What an elegant place. They greet you right away and welcome you to sit down while handing you champagne. This is just to check in. Once accommodated in your room, you find fresh fruit and incents burning. So relaxing. The room facing the beach was so relaxing and the hotel was practically empty when I stayed there which I loved.... More

Casa colonial is a stylish, world class retreat. Small and intimate with outstanding service. The impressive 'home' opens its ornate iron gates into a sumptuous lobby where you are greeted with a cocktail and a swift check in. The rooms are light and airy. It's clear that a lot of thought and care has gone into the design. The food... More

We just returned from a very relaxing vacation at Casa Colonial. However, my opinion about the hotel is somehow torn: Casa Colonial is probably one of the most beautiful places on earth I've ever seen. The hotel is nestled between the beautiful Playa Dorada beach and a picturesque jungle-like little park with a lake and a fountain. The two buildings... More

We are just finishing a perfect 6 day stay(one less than planned thanks to a JetBlue snafu) at this elegant, quiet resort. Our room on the third floor (ocean view) was lovely and clean. The level of service throughout was remarkable, especially the beach staff who anticipated our every need. The food was excellent, albeit a little expensive. The pool... More
