Casa Colonial is a beautiful, peaceful, small boutique hotel on Playa Dorada in Puerto Plata. The staff are kind, friendly and helpful. The rooms and grounds are gorgeous. Incredible colonial architecture and impeccable gardens. We stayed three nights and could've stayed a month in this peaceful oasis. The shoreline is beautiful and is a two minute walk from your room.... More

Great spot in the middle of the all inclusive hotels of puerto playa. A little pricy but well worth it. Small luxury hotel with excellent service and facility. Restaurant was incredible. A true gem. Look at the pictures but do not do justice. If you want to get away and be pampered it's the spot. Spa and facilities top notch.

Elegant, sophisticated and romantic hotel with 50 rooms. Ocean front suite was outstanding with a 4 poster king bed and tub for 2 along with a balcony to overlooking the beach. Prefer the second or third floors for a bit of a view vs. the first floor. Spa is also a plus with a couples massage as well as an... More

If you are reading this and on your way to Casa Colonial, I am jealous. I was pretty sure Casa Colonial would hold true to the reviews -- and it did not dissapoint.

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.
