We were staying at another hotel but decided to try their restaurant for lunch on the veranda, the food was good and we went back for dinner the same day. The service was top notch and the food was exceptional. The feel is definitely colonial and elegant. We asked them to call our hotel for us to send the golf... More

This was an amazing way to start every day at the hotel. The staff was super attentive and had our favorites ready to go and made great suggestions for new things to try. First time I have felt so much anticipation for breakfast every morning!

We had several breakfasts and lunches at the Veranda. Juices and coffee were good. The pastries were OK. The egg dishes were not so hot. Oatmeal was good one day, but just wet slime the next day. All of the fruit was outstanding and beautifully presented, however.

I have visited a friend living in Puerto Plata for the past six years and during each trip have had lunch at the Casa Colonial at least twice and found it most enjoyable despite being upper end cost wise. On this visit I was extremely disappointed. The service was shameful and when the food arrived it was cold. Our complaint... More

Stayed at Casa Colonial in Feb and had breakfast every morning at this pretty spot. Meals are served either indoors or outside on the terrace. Food is nicely presented and tasteful... a very nice place to enjoy our morning coffee and food. Staff is pleasant and offer good, prompt and professional service.

This is a review of the Veranda Restaurant only, not the hotel or spa. We lunched here today and were the only patrons for a superb luncheon of mahi mahi and Caribbean jambalaya. We dined outdoors, fine breezes mitigating 31 Celsius warmth and were attended by a fine, professional and friendly staff. Highly recommend with only one caveat which others... More
