Generally these days major resorts in Caribbean countries have turned into drunken college students or obnoxious little kids. This is why you have to try the little guy. I stayed at Casa Blanca for a week and I'll remember it always. If you want to see a country, feel comfortable and make new friends then this is the place. Very nice little hotel, by no means a five star so if that's what your expecting then go to vegas. You can walk 1 min to the beach where there is a vast amount of beachfront restaurants that you can dine at (I reccomend a late dinner because the view is amazing at night). The beach is bustling with activity, but not just the trinket peddlers you find on every beach. There are kite surfers, locals, I saw a couple fisherman, lessons for every water sport, restaurants, you can walk 30 seconds and buy a six pack for less then $5 canadian and bring it back to the beach, pay a guy a dollar for a chair and sit there enjoying the sun and ocean for hours. Without have paid more than $6. Don't get me wrong though, if you want trinkets or your hair braided then you got it no problem. But you should know that there is a store the owners of the hotel showed me that is a 5 minute walk and has ALL of those trinkets at the price that the beach peddlers buy it at. You won't believe how cheap it is. So, the hotel is nice, very nice pool, lots of sun, comfortable beds and the best part is the location. If you want to experience any part of the Dominican Republic this is a perfect, affordable hotel in a perfect location to do so. Another great thing is the fact that the owners live there. If you have any issues to be addressed then you don't talk to a bell person or front office supervisor, you talk to the owner of the hotel. Do some research, check it out for yourself. I personally hope to find the Casa Blanca in every country so that I can truly see the world.
