What everyone knows: this place is very expensive. What I was hopeful about, but needed to confirm with my own experience: it's worth the money. The recommendations to do the all-inclusive plan were spot on, particularly if you plan to eat and drink a lot. As others mentioned, this place is fantastic if you enjoy golf, tennis, skeet shooting, and horseback riding. Beautiful grounds and immaculate rooms. Would recommend the Elite Balcony rooms that have cathedral ceilings. The golf carts are a great touch and to be honest, necessary, given how spread out everything is (i.e., marina, alto de chavon, the private beach, etc). Here are a few suggestions for resort management which would have made the stay spectacular, instead of excellent:

1 - golf: elite golf courses such as those onsite at Casa De Campo should supply large towels in the golf carts. I have paid $50 on county golf courses and received a towel in the golf cart; to pay hundreds of dollars to play a course, often in extreme heat, with no towel provided, just doesn't make sense.

2 - all-inclusive: one of the benefits of an all-inclusive is not having to fuss with carrying wallets/cash; at this resort, you must carry with you and present your room card anytime you want a drink or snack or meal. There must be a better way to handle this process, whether issuing people wrist bands, or a combination of asking for a room number, then have staff look up the number and determine the party's last name, and then require the party to print and sign their name to the receipt? Something needs to be done to eliminate the need to carry around a room card. It would make the stay that much more pleasant.

Also - re the all-inclusive: I think the fees are high enough that the mini bar should be included. Seems kind of petty to exclude it.

3 - Golf carts: great idea; but it would be such a better experience if carts were electric rather than the smelly gas which permeates this beatiful resort.

Room Tip: Go for the Elite Balcony rooms - high ceilings make the large room appear even larger.

Just came back from my fourth golf trip to Casa de Campo with three girlfriends. The resort has been upgraded and the results are wonderful. Although we went for the fabulous golf the new patio elite rooms were a great surprise. Beautiful decor, supremely comfortable beds, lovely bathroom. We ate at La Cana which is the new hotel dining room overlooking the pools and sat outside. Great food. Other winners were La Piazetta at Altos de Chavon and The Beach Club. We did the all inclusive plan which probably wasn't the most economical but it made life so easy - no currency conversions and tips included. The service all over the resort was the best that I have ever experienced - without exception every staff member seemed to want to help you have the best time. Wasn't sure how easy it would be traveling without our husbands but it was a breeze. Took golf carts all over the resort and the shuttle to Altos de Chavon. A little advice - if you're on the all inclusive plan your wine will be included unless you order bottles. We paid extra for one bottle but that was fine. Also, take lots of one dollar bills for tipping - these people work hard and deserve it.

Casa de campo is a luxurious 5 star resort that sits on 7000 acres. You read that right. Each room comes with its own golf cart to get around. There are 5 restaurants, 24/7 room service, 3 golf courses, polo field, skeet range, you get the point. Service is spectacular, you are pampered in every way. Our hotel room was bigger than my first apartment! That said, it's not for everyone. If you like to play golf, sit at the pool, go to the spa, and be pampered, this IS the place for you. If you are active and like to go on excursions, maybe not. The hotel concierge is helpful, but there are minimums for all activities like ATV tours, kayak expeditions, catamaran tours of the nearby pristine Catalina island, etc, and there is no help in getting others at the hotel to meet the minimum. Example, my wife and I wanted to take the catamaran tour, but it requires 15 people, and there was no sign up list or way to recruit others. If you did not have 15 (just my wife and me!), then we were out of luck. There are plenty of outside tour companies that will come and get you and take you, but taxi/bus service is expensive and because the resort is so big, it takes awhile to get anywhere. We went scuba diving, and the drive to Bayahibe was 30 minutes each way and cost $160 round trip! We found ourselves kind of trapped by the expanse and getting bored after a week. On the other hand, we drank and ate to our hearts content and everything was wonderful. By the way, the resort gives each guest a credit card that ALL charges go on, even food and drinks in the all inclusive package, plus anything else you want to buy, like clothes, golf, etc and then when you check out all food and drink is removed and you are only charged for non inclusive stuff like tips, service charges on room service, and whatever you bought. We went on a Costco package that included airport transfers and it was flawless. We had a great time, but in retrospect for adventurous people like us, we should have stayed in Bayahibe for diving and boating or on the north side of the island for white water rafting, rum tours, surfing, etc.

Room Tip: Get the Costco all inclusive package which includes a room upgrade to a luxury balcony suite!

A lot going for it, huge piece of beautiful property, three golf courses (two of which are spectacular), great accomodations, friendly helpful staff, etc. A coupe of nit picky issues prevent five stars. Pricy, but you knew that. But because it is so pricy, things have to be really great to get top rating. And there were a couple of little issues. The cold water tap gives luke warm water, and if you want to brush your teeth or take a pill, it is either warm water or a pricy bottle of water from the in room bar. Water amount and pressure not so good, which shows up in showers and the slowor not flushing toilet. A little trash in out of the way places, like below our lanai. For a first rate golf courrse, i don't think they have moved the cups on Dye Fore for weeks, making putting an adventure, and the Links course is not well maintained. These are tiny issues, however, and even at the price, we will certainly be back. If you are over 50 and coming for the golf, check on Seniors Week in Nov for good prices and fun people.

This place has outstanding service. The golf at Teeth of the Dog is amazing. Standout course. Food is reliable. Beach is a lot of fun and beautiful. Can drive everywhere with a golf cart. Highly recommended. One downside is that it's pricey...recommend the all inclusive plan to save money.

This is my first time staying at the hotel. I have been to Casa de campo before but always had rented a house. The rooms are awesome, large rooms and large bathrooms. Great space and comfortable bed. Ac worked good and for me that is always key when you are in such hot weather.
Service is awesome, the restaurants run a bit slow, but this is a beach resort so it is to be expected. I was told by one of the managers that they have to take a certain amount of time even if the dish is ready ( 15 min minimum)
The golf is the best there is, I have played at ,any great courses (pinehurst, whistling straits) and this is up there with them. Ask for pepo the caddy if you get to play, great guy and very respectful.

Eat at pepperoni!

Overall this place is awesome, definitely one of my favorite places to go!

I live in Casa de Campo.

The hotel switchboard still connects you to anything other than the the number you dialed.

I hope they never fix it.

This is a special place that Time Forgot.

The food is incredible.

The service is impossible.

Yet, I have searched the earth of where to live.
