I very much enjoyed my stay at the Casa Colonial. The staff was very helpful and kind, the facilities were the best I have experienced in the carribean, and the food was surprisingly good, even gourmet. I also enjoyed the boutique feel of the place, as well as the smaller more cozy atmosphere in what was surely the most sophisticated... More

WOW……What a great place! I have been in the airline business since 1979 and have had the great pleasure to see a good part of the world and also having the good fortune of staying at some very impressive hotels over the past 29 years but I do believe that I may have now found the perfect hotel…..

In September, my wife and I spent our Honeymoon here based on a recommendation of a friend who would not stop talking about the Hotel, its rooms, the service, ambiance, and how it would both be romantic and perfect for a newly married couple . We did some research online first, and I don't think photos or words can do... More

I would heartily recommend this property for a few days or even a week. The rooms are fantastic, the restaurant is exceptional and the public areas are beautiful. The only complaint I have is the pool area should be upgraded by having a pool boy setting up the chairs and handing out towels. The pool staff is on the lazy... More

From the moment we drove past the gates we were transported into a movie where my mind stood still and all around me moved like the gentle breeze. I walked through cool white colonial arches into a magical garden filled with colors and goodness. Breathing every moment I began to slip into the movie. I felt like a baron. The... More

This has to be one of the best small luxury resorts in the islands. At the suggestion of friends, we spent two fantastic weeks there over Christmas and new years. We're small luxury fanatics and this was a real treat. It's unbelievably beautiful (espeacially if you love details) and the service seems to have a genuine warmth behind it that... More

We had the pleasure to stay 3 weeks in this really beautiful hotel. Hereby our opinion: - The rooms were very nice, spatious and were extremely well cleaned every day. - The Lucia restaurant was well above our own expectations. The choice of food was enormous and the quality was comparable with fine dining in Europe. The same could be... More

We just left Casa Colonial – our second Christmas in a row there. What a difference a year makes. Last year not only was the place beautiful (it still is), but the food and service were excellent. This year, while most of the staff are friendly and accommodative, it seems that senior management simply does not care, although room prices... More

On behalf of all the staff of Casa Colonial please accept our sincere apology for your last experience in our beautiful resort. There are a few things that I would like you to know. The chef is the same than last year and so the rest of the kitchen staff therefore the quality is guaranteed. I believe that there has... More

Our stay for our honeymoon at Casa was the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. I have traveled around the world and stayed in 5 star boutique hotels. This is not one. This hotel is similar to a Shilo Inn, but I have had better service at a Holiday Inn. We arrived on my birthday (which they... More
