I returned to Casa Colonial with friends for 2 nights before starting a week long holiday at a local villa. The staff remembered me from a year before and were just as wonderful as last year. Manuel at the front desk was outstanding and the bartender as always excellent. Several of my friends had massages and enjoyed them immensely ...... More

Casa Colonial might be a 5-star hotel in the Dominican Republic – but internationally it would be more like a 3-star. Positive things about the hotel are that the staff is well-meaning (but badly trained0 and the place is very clean and well-maintained. But there were many things that were unacceptable, inappropriate or just plain wrong: 1: CHLIDREN ARE ALLOWED.... More

We came here for the first part of our honeymoon and loved our stay. We keep very busy at home so we were looking for a chance to simply unwind. The Casa Colonial was perfect for unwinding.

Casa Colonial is a destination boutique hotel. It's 50 exquisitely decorated suites with lavish attention to detail. The bed sheets are so soft I didn't want to leave. The spa is wonderful...You need to plan some spa time. The rooftop infinity pool, the gardens, all amazing. The beach was lovely, the food at Lucia was exquisite...The chef is from Florence... More

We were amazed by this beautiful hotel right from the entrance... the exquisite decor and the general ambiance suggests a peaceful and wonderful stay. The limited number of rooms, allows the staff to provide a high quality service and attention to everything you might need. Don't expect "fun" or any of those noisy entertainment activities from regular hotels, this is... More

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

We'd never been to DR before, and didn't have expectations that this hotel would live up to 100% of the positive reviews. Casa Colonial exceeded them. "It is more beautiful than the web pages, yes?" the bellhop said. "Si," said we. The room was extremely comfortable and had all the comforts you would expect for a 5star... high end linens,... 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
