Ok so lets start off by saying that I have taken many trips with family, friends, and the love of my life my boyfriend so I am a VERY experienced traveler. By no means of the imagination am I high maintenance or bratty. I love exploring exotic places and busing it up with the locals, but this place completely let... More

This was my second time here as part of a service group that goes off resort into the poorer villages to contribute to community projects. Was pleasantly surprised the first time I visited Casa Marina as it is not a luxury hotel but was fine for our needs. This time around we did not have as quiet a room as... More

I am a hotel snob but because I was paying for two other people on this trip, I chose this resort based on price. The resort exceeded my three star expectations and is very beautiful. The rooms were even satisfactory to my five star standards. HOWEVER, the food was another thing if you are a "foodie" like me. The buffet... More

After reading the 4 or 5 reviews below there really isn't much else that I can say that is new! Pros: Cheap, clean, beautiful landscapes, and decent food, Nice and happy maid service (Ana, was one of the very few upbeat staff anywhere! She appreciated our tips and gifts) Cons: Rediculous frontdesk staff (Rude, obnoxious, etc.), older basic, bare minimum... More

We loved this hotel. It is my second visit and the 1st time for the other 3. The property is just 15 minutes from the Puerto Plata airport which makes for a short transfer. The front lobby is small and not much to look at, but the staff are friendly and had all the paperwork ready for us. We had... More

As low as 795 including tax departing from Hamilton. That leaves only about 350. to cover airfare and hotel expense so not bad for that price. Food is not exciting but it's okay. The bread is the best I've ever tasted. Their chicken is delicious. A la cartes are not what we expect here but the Dominican version of Italian,... More
