Have stayed at the Casa 10 weeks in total. Its not a 5 star and does not promote itself as one. Its good value for the dollar. Older but kept clean. Great service wherever you go. In a few minutes you can walk into Sosua for a good time.

This was our third trip to Casa Marina. I have to say they have done some work on the rooms since we were there 3 years old. If you stay in 5 star resorts you won't appreciate this resort. Yes it is a 3.5 star! But I'll give you a breakdown. Rooms (2 stars) - they are tired... there are... More

WOW....we were expecting a trashy resort according to the reviews but we're pleasantly surprised! The room was quite basic but very clean, freshly painted...if you want luxury, pay the money! The beds TOPS in quality as well as the bathroom 'clean, dryer, plenty of hot water'. Nothing to complain about...our week was enjoyed with all it offered! The 'grounds' amazing---beautiful... More

With some trepidation I read the other reviews here AFTER already booking - we needed a discount vacation, and this was what we could afford. All in all we were pleasantly surprised! Went with my husband and 2 kids aged 2.5 and 4. The worst thing was the fact that the beds are rather small for us big North American... More

We spent a week at this...ahhhh resort??....in March (2015). This is such a disappointing spot. It is marketed as a resort and may have been worthy of the moniker 25 years ago. It is a sorry, sad spot today. Accommodation: Our room hada broken bathroom window which allowed fresh mouse droppings every day. A request to have the window glass... More

We travelled from mar 30th – april 6th. This was our 1st time in the Dominican Rep. As per most of the reviews you get what you pay for! If you are looking for a cheap vacation of sunshine and relaxation and don’t sweat the little things this is a great resort. The only issue we had was not the... More

If you've read the reviews on here, they're all accurate, save for one major con. My biggest complaint is the lack of respect given to female clientele. I spent most of my time on the beach but every time I came back onto the resort for meals or drinks I would be harassed in one way or another by staff,... More

We just got back from our family trip to the Dominican Republic, it was my first time there. I was pleasantly surprised. The Dominican country side is beautiful! Sosua is very poor and run down but was interesting to see. We went for a walk in town during the day and felt safe. The store owners in the market area... More

This "resort" isn't a resort in my opinion. The room is comparable to a room at a Motel 6 in a bad part of town. The bathroom was very old and dingy and taking a shower there didn't make me feel very clean. You only get a flat sheet to cover up with on the bed. There are NO blankets... More
