The rocky approach road to this hotel is definitely off putting but once you climb to the top of the hill and enter the outside space of this hotel you will be rewarded. The best view of the ocean and tropical forest outside your room with a wrap around swimming pool.Private balcony in every room with great bathroom and furnishings.... More

The restaurant at Casa Bonita is very good, the rooms are very comfortable. They have a great spa!! I got an anti stress massage right next... More

This is a very intimate hotel. The views to the mountain and the ocean are terrific. Honeymooners and couples will enjoy this hotel a lot. Also, you can make differents tours and excursions in that beautiful part of Dominican Republic.

Pros: Views from the pool Public areas Cons: -Overpriced (we paid around $400 which left us feeling totally ripped off. If one if paying around $200-250 it's fine) rooms: Small, cramped rooms. Website and most other marketing shows images of the suite but the rooms are rundown, dingy, cramped, partial ocean views. Bathroom was minuscule and dirty. Service: staff is... More

I spent a week at Casa Bonita and had an incredible time. My boyfriend and I rented a car and drove from Santa Domingo (if you do this, make sure you have a good map--they're hard to come by en route to Barahona and printouts from google maps may not indicate road closures, etc.). Casa Bonita is the perfect combination... More

Casa Bonita is the place to be if one wants to spend some secluded holidays in the nature. The hotel has the outmost privacy and one can decide to relax and lay down on the pool in the sun or be active and take part in many activities as Casa Bonita also counts with many onsite activities like horse riding,...
