Casa colonial was a beautiful hotel, but it’s not for everyone. It’s more of a retreat and a place to go if you want peace and quiet. It’s definitely for an older crowd. We were in the pool having a conversation and were told we were being too loud. Had music on super low on a cellphone and they told us we couldn’t have music, but it didn’t say that in the rules. Another group was being even louder and they didn’t tell them anything. They seem to cater more to a European crowd and not their own people. Food was also over priced and not great. Our food came out before our drinks and we waited 45 mins for that. Our drinks at the pool and beach also took at least 20 minutes. They seemed very under staffed. We ended up not even having dinner there after one night and went across to another restaurant that was much better. Even though this place was beautiful I will not be coming back after not being treated so nicely.

Response from V B, Other at Casa Colonial Beach & Spa
Responded Jul 27, 2021
Casa Colonial is a place of beauty and elegance - a place where people of all ages from all over the world have come to celebrate their weddings, anniversaries, or just to have fun. Many come just to take advantage of the special zen that is here for all those who want it. There are 100’s of resorts where it might be possible to blast music and be as loud as you want. There is only one Casa Colonial.

Beautifully peaceful beachfront. Breathtaking scenery. Arriving to the hotels porte-cochère is just a beautiful glimpse of the simplicity and luxury that awaits its interiors Theres not much to do but to enjoy nature and relax in comfort. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean is marvelous. Service there is grade 1-A You have not truly relaxed until you have tried their Spa Dining is superb! specially dinner in the Lucia restaurant! I highly, highly recommend this Small Luxury Hotel!

We got exactly what we wanted for our first post vaccines holiday. Casa Colonial is an Oasis in a guarded golf community of resorts and time shares. It stood out from all the rest, small 50 rooms and directly on a beautiful beach. It is an SLH property that acts and looks like one. The buildings are beautiful, the experience begins the moment you pull into their private drive and see something that strikes you as European and authentic, certainly nothing like all the surrounding properties. The main building is marbled and houses reception, the bar, restaurant, private dining and wine 'cellar'. From here you walk through lovely mature garden, flowers, tropical trees, a pond, to the residential building. This building contains their Spa and a fantastic rooftop pool with several hot (well, warm) tubs and a restaurant/bar. Rooms of course vary, we opted for an Oceanfront with balcony on the top/3rd floor. Very spacious room, very comfy bed, sofa and chairs, an expansive and up-to-date bathroom, with shower and tub. The balcony was large and indeed overlooked the ocean, though the view is largely blocked by trees. At first this seemed to be a bother but in fact added to the overall calming effect - especially at night when you can leave the doors open and hear the ocean and in the morning when the birds and ocean serenade you awake. No bugs at all. A highlight was sitting on the rooftop bar one night, all alone, watching the moon and sky!!! Priceless The staff were ALL excellent - from the valet to the reception to the restaurants to room maintenance to the pool and beach staff. I'd highlight some but don't want to forget any so I won't. English a bit challenging at times but they will go above and beyond to help. We felt extremely safe though the only time we left the property in our 5 days was when the valet took us in a golf cart to/from a nearby restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was included each day - it was a vacation so we had it each day about 10 then didn't eat again til dinner. The outdoor Veranda is beachfront for breakfast and lunch, closes at 5. The extensive menu always delivered - again terrific staff here. Unfortunately dinner is not served here Dinner is in the Lucia restaurant - a beautiful restaurant. However, we asked to eat just outside, adjacent to the gardens, after all we are from New Jersey and have been eating inside for months. The staff pleasantly set us up outside and it was grand. Again terrific staff at this restaurant. The food here was hit and miss though - they delivered well on the meat dishes but the fish disappointed. For our final night we had them set us up for dinner on the beach (a package option) which was fantastic - carved out a space on their beach with a table, torches and also a lounger for after dinner drinks. A Wow finish. Negatives: Beachfront restaurant closes for dinner so only option on the property is the fine dining Lucia (not that you have to get dressed up) Stick to beers and the fine wine list. Puerta Plata can be fairly windy - lots of watersports take advantage. One day was too strong so we headed for the pool which is protected. Wifi was mostly good with some drops - never turned the TV on! More Positives: The beach was spectacular. 18 hole Golf course is a 5 minute walk. In a sad way, we almost had the hotel and beach to ourselves. I walked east and west each day, maybe 4 miles total and saw maybe 8-10 people. Most everything is still closed including surrounding resorts and most restaurants. While having a spectacular, long sandy beach all to yourself is wonderful, it is sad to know so many people are out of work and not traveling. So come down - this place will treat you nice from the first to last minute.

We stayed at this amazing property for three nights and it was a wonderful experience! No, there is not much to do, but listening to the sounds of nature, soaking in the sunshine, walking miles of empty beaches and only sharing the beauty with only a few other lucky people was therapy of the best kind! The hotel itself is beautiful with a very inviting lobby, comfortable rooms, and a balcony which we loved. The staff was engaging and gracious thru out our stay, and very nice to our little 10 month old son. We ate on property all three days and had no negative experiences. Our highlights were the Mahi Mahi Tacos, the salmon, and the special Dominican dish they offered on Fridays. The area as a whole is still almost completely shut down due to Covid, for example, the nearby two story mall had only two stores open. But everyone we saw wore a mask and was conscientious. You are pretty much limited to the hotel for food and to the beach for entertainment, but for our three days we couldn't have asked for more! The only place I am going to knock them is the laundry service is pure extortion! $7 to wash a pair of mens shorts is crazy, as is $8 for a T shirt. There are no other options, so be prepared. We spent $60 to wash one day's worth of laundry- ridiculous! So in summary: It really is a special place to spend a few days. A week might be a little long due to the lack of options, but in today's world, this is an amazing opportunity to live a few dreamy days. Not cheap, but value for money, and worth every penny!

My wife and I just returned from a week long stay at Casa Colonial. We needed to spend time at a peaceful beachfront oasis in the sun after many months of long hours working in the medical field during the pandemic. Options were limited with lockdown and quarantine restrictions. What we found at Casa Colonial was just what we needed. The hotel was beautiful, clean, well-run, and quite comfortable. The beach was well maintained, private, and quiet. The spa was clean and services were very professional. Every meal was excellent in quality, variety, and freshness of ingredients. We did not have any food related issues despite eating almost all our meals at the hotel. The entire staff was particularly friendly and accommodating without being at all intrusive. As travel options hopefully increase over the coming months I’m sure that it will become much more difficult to book a room here, especially at the rates they are currently offering. The hotel is also relatively close to the international airport, which was very easy to navigate and even provided rapid Covid-19 testing on site before boarding our return flight.
