Beautiful beach. Go to the right by the surfing school or in the extreme right past the little river for a very calm private time away from major waves. Perfect jogging. Perfect scuba diving off the islands across from the hotel. The hosts are a young French couple very passionate about their new homeland and most helpful in all bookings.... More

Sometimes you just have to trust your gut! I will not recommend doing this for non locals because it is too risky but we drove from santo Domingo to Las Terrenas after lunch on a Saturday over a long weekend without a room reservation on an impulse. We wanted to stay overnight beachside in lovely Playa Bonita. Hotels we had... More

Unlike some hotels in the Las Terrenas area, Casa Grande allows dogs to roam freely on the grounds, off-leash. So dog-owners seem to flock to this place, and at various times in the day there can be packs of them, virtually out of control. I was attacked by two dogs in the afternoon of Nov. 30, 2012, while walking back... More

Pros: On a beautiful beach - go to the left and around the point for the most beautiful, serene swimming. Very laid back. Owners not there during our stay, but the caretakers were exceedingly friendly and accommodating. Cons: Rooms need updating, some paint at the very least.Not very clean. Beds/linens/drapes/lamps/towels - need new ones! Had only two very thin bath... More

Casa Grande is located right at one of the most beautiful beaches in Samana. The staff is attentive and helpful, and the breakfast very nice. It has a wonderful garden which is lovely for reading or hanging out. The rooms are simple and the showers a bit strange, but all clean, decent and originally decorated. I can recommend this place!

Perfect place for a relaxing stay, not to mention the awesome owner Jacky. This place will remain special in my heart forever also because we managed to rescue a friend from drowning with the help from the staff of the hotel

The place is excellent, very quiet, great location in front of an amazing beach. The food is amongst the best I have tried. The rooms are simple, but the price is excellent. Excellent place for a relaxing weekend or vacation. Good internet connection, work if you want, the garden is great.

Playa Bonita is difficult to get to but well worth it if you desire a placid, undisturbed and rustic beach. This small hotel has a wonderful relaxed ambiance and excellent value including delicious bkfst. Excellent restaurant. Rooms are simple,have privacy, but not much hot water. With my 10y old daughter, we were looking for some activity and the hotel manager,... More

We arrived at Casa Grande and were told they have no room for us. We had a reservation for 3 nights, confirmed by an email from the hotel, that we had with us, as well as by phone. They have not denied the validity of our reservation, which they had in their records. We interacted with the owner of the... More

This hotel was recommended so we made a reservation for three nights. The best (only) good thing I can say about this place is that the food is good, which is an exception in the DR. The curtains in the room were torn with holes, the fixtures in the bathroom were hanging by a thread, the towel bar collapsed when... More
