Casa Colonial is a magnificent enclave within the Playa Dorada enclave. There are no signs to announce its presence. There are large black gates at the entry and a very friendly staff to greet and care for you. The building and grounds are exquisite. For a stay of a few days, it offers a mostly peaceful setting and departure from... More

THE HOTEL We stayed at the Casa Colonial over the New Year's Eve holiday with our two college aged daughters. The hotel offered special New Year's Eve dining, a DJ and dancing on the beach and fireworks. The hotel is lovely; it is designed in an airy yet chic style. The ambience is relaxed but the service is top notch.... More

This is a lovely hotel but it might as well be anywhere else. It sits directly on the beautiful Playa Dorada, which houses a number of hotels all assessible via a private road that prevents anyone local from visiting. Upon arriving you're welcomed by staff dressed in uniforms designed to conjure images of British colonial India complete with pith hats.... More

It is very difficult, if not impossible, to describe the beauty of the facility, the perfection in every detail, the peaceful and gorgeous location, the quality of the service and the food at "Casa Colonial".

Entering Casa Colonial is like being teleported to a secret Caribbean garden. The two separate buildings surround a natural pond with tropical flora, all buzzing and trickling in perfect harmony. The private beach is taken straight out of a postcard image of Caribbean serenity. The hotel merges with its surroundings in the most natural way. No detail, no matter how... More

My husband and I just spent a week at Casa Colonial celebrating our honeymoon. We were looking for some place that felt special, intimate and relaxing. From the start, working with the concierge, Irina, to make the arrangements was a breeze. When we arrived, we were struck how beautiful the place is. Beyond just general maintenance of the property, it... More

I stayed at their sister hotel, Gran Ventana from 10/05/15 to 10/11/15. My group and I decided do a spa day and it turned out great!!! The grounds are amazing. It feels like you were transported into another era of pure sophistication. We enjoyed the steam and sauna rooms before our 80 minute massage. My masseuse was so lovely, sweet,... More

Gorgeous archetecure impeccable attention to detail and good staff willing to help accommodate your requests. Nestled between mediocre all inclusive hotels it is a grand contrast. Elevated infinity pool and bar are very pleasant . By far the nicest hotel in the Puerto Plata area and most expensive.
