We originally were booked to stay down the beach at Gran Ventana, but after one extremely bad night we were packing our bags! Thankfully Casa Colonial is only a few hotels down, but seriously could not be more different (even though it is run by the same management). The service was AMAZING! They instantly told us not to worry and... More

This is by far the most exclusive dining experience on the Dominican North Coast - bar none. Five star plus treatment all the way in every aspect - ambience,decor, service, food presentation and quality, hospitality. Being here makes you feel like a SOMEBODY! You deserve a treat today.

I really have nothing negative to say. But I feel it is a little over priced. the quality is at par with any five start hotel at NY or LA. But it is not in NY or LA. It is in POP. But it is just my opinion. Everything is indeed perfect.

There just isn't much to say other than they don't miss a thing. The property is beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable, the food is off the chart. Lunch by the pool on the roof is not to be missed. We only had a two night stay before meeting friends at another resort for the rest of the week and... More

Beautiful place, luxurious rooms, beautiful views, great food and impeccable service. I tried all things Dominican they offered and was not disappointed. I tried their Sancocho for lunch one day, excellent! I had a Dominican breakfast the next morning which consisted of fried eggs, fried white farm cheese, Dominican salami, and mangu (mashed green plantains with pickled red onions) what... More

A very nice hotel with exceptional service. Highly recommended to any one coming to this area. The breakfasts were particularly lovely and the roof top pool quite amazing. DON'T undr any circumstances go to the Jade Garden Chinese restaurant as the attitude sucks

My wife and I traveled in mid February to Casa Colonial.
