Casa de Campo Resort & Villas

Reviewed October 26, 2013

When built this was no doubt amazing and many of its aspects still are. But the hotel is not on the beach, the beach (which you have to drive to) is just ok especially relative to other beaches in the DR. The rooms are very nice and the service is great. The food is good but not great. But the spa is spectacular. This is the second time I have gone and while very, very nice, I feel that there are other, better options. Unless of course you are a golfer.

The property is ginormous even after staying at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana. To make it easier for guests, they give each room their own golf cart which is not only efficient but super fun! The room was very spacious with a sitting area, balcony or patio, large bathroom and a nice walk in closet. L'Occitane amenities are always a fave of mine. Internet was great, never had any issues.

I highly recommend getting the all inclusive plan if you are not staying in a villa. The restaurants there are fantastic and also pricey. One of their restaurants is the sister restaurant of Le Cirque in NYC. For the meals we ate, the all inclusive was more than worth it.

The beach is definitely small for the size of the property. Since we were there during low season it wasn't an issue but I could see it being one during busier times. We loved driving the cart out to the marina and the little village. Absolutely adorable! There was a lot to do besides just going to the beach which we enjoyed.

Staff was friendly but we sometimes got the feeling like we were bothering them. Again, it was low season and some areas of the village were completely dead and employees were aware of this. But at the resort, there were times we walked by employees and were completely ignored. Not something I would expect from a Leading Hotel of the World. Despite this, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay here again!

Room Tip: All are great!

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here at Casa and that you were able to explore the entire property while having a blast on the touring carts. We are surprised to hear that our staff was not as welcoming as that is one of the things we get the most praises on, but nevertheless we will forward this information to the appropriate department in order to address it. We hope you come back to Casa and as you are already part of the family, on behalf of our entire staff thank you.

We were excited about our first visit to Casa de Campo and had high expectations. I have to say that without a doubt every aspect on our experience while at Casa exceeded our expectations (staff, facility, service, food beverages and hospitality)!

We could not have had a better place to spend a week with our daughter and her family! Only regret we have is that we did not have more time to stay and take advantage of all that Casa offers to its guests!

“Thank You” for a great experience on our first, but certainly not our last, visit to the Dominican Republic and Casa de Campo!

Room Tip: Strongly suggest anyone that is going consider the "All Inclusive" plan. You won't reg...

Casa de Campo has 7,000 acres of property and 20 billionaires -- yes, that's with a 'B,' folks -- own property here. The Kardashians vacationed here, Drake filmed his 'Started from the bottom now I'm here...' music video here, the Beebs has stayed here, etc., etc. It's an off-the-grid, serene and sanitized bubble to experience gorgeous Dominican Republic weather and get beachy. The hotel, meanwhile, is very reasonably priced and more for the "every day" normal traveler. If you're a golfer, Teeth of the Dog is ranked #34 in the world and #1 in Latin America, so that's a big draw. The one thing some people don't realize is that pretty much everything is man made, including the village, which looks like it's plucked right out of Europe. On one hand, that's really cool and impressive. On the other hand, that's why there are some limitations (like a smaller beach, per one reviewer's complaint). I'd recommend it for anyone who wants to visit the DR and just be stress-free and safe.

We just returned from Casa de Campo where we rented a beachside villa, La Brisa. Going in September was nice because it is low season and in most places we went, we were the only people there. Which is our preferred travel experience. But it is also HOT in September, so be prepared!

Our villa was amazing and beautiful. It sits on the 8th hole of Teeth of the Dog with gorgeous ocean and fairway views. We had a butler and 2 maids everyday who cooked wonderful meals as well as did our laundry daily. Our butler, Agapito made the best fruit smoothies on the planet everyday for afternoon snack! We loved them and felt as if they were part of our family by the end of our 10 day stay. None of us speak Spanish and their English was so so, but we did very well and learned from each other.

The villa came with 2 golf carts and a small car which were all used to get our group of 8 to the different activities we enjoyed daily. One of the nice things about Casa de Campo is that is offers so many things to do. Two in our group are avid golfers and said that the courses were gorgeous and challenging. This is definitely the place to go if you are a golfer for sure. We also had larger vans pick us up for off property excursions or dinners when we didn't want to take the golf carts.

But I am an avid shooter and I found their shooting center to be the best I've ever experienced. Hermo, our guide, was top notch. We shot trap and sporting clays 4 days while there. We were the only ones shooting which made it that much better. He helped improve my shot tremendously with easy to follow tips. The sporting clays course is outstanding. 250 stations! They were challenging and fun to shoot and unlike anything I've ever encountered. If you enjoy shooting sports, this is a must. Do not miss this! If you have never shot a gun in your life, but think you'd like to try, sign up for a lesson. Hermo had one of our friends shooting like a pro on her first outing! Everything is provided: gun, shooting vest and eye and ear protection.

The resort is beautiful, but if you are looking for a beach vacation, you might be disappointed. There is a beach which is very nice. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas. You can rent snorkel gear , kayaks etc if you can catch them when they are open. Apparently, during slow season that particular shack is not always open. The water is crystal clear and beautiful, but we didn't spend much time there.

Instead, we chartered a private boat for a day and went to Palmilla beach and Saona. Highly suggest you do this instead of taking a "cattle" boat to see either. And if you have someone in your group that speaks spanish that would really help. None of our crew spoke any english so it took a while explaining that we wanted a private experience, not to hang out with the 400 other people that were trying to see these 2 places. Personally, I would skip Palmilla. It's a pretty beach and sand bar. But because there are so many people that go there, the star fish are all but about gone and they are replaced with very loud crowds of people of multiple boats. Highly suggest Saona. It was beautiful and we docked just down from there on a private beach. Great snorkeling!

We could not have had such a good experience without our concierge, Walkiria. If we needed anything, we called her and it was done. Even coming up with a birthday cake on short notice that was out of this world!

Overall, it was a fantastic trip and we will absolutely be returning!

As other reviewers have mentioned, this resort is in a gated residential development. The grounds are HUGE! You have the option of all inclusive or not. We were only there for one night to celebrate my birthday. Regrettably it was a rainy afternoon when we arrived, but upon a mere mention of my birthday, a bottle of wine was sent to our room (nice touch!). We then took off in the included golf cart to explore the grounds. We spent the better part of three hours touring around looking at the beautiful homes (many owned by celebrities), visiting the marina, the local grocery store & shops.

We had dinner in the restaurant, used the gym, and ordered breakfast "in bed". All were exceptional. We did make it to the beach the next day for a few hours. We found it clean, with nice loungers, umbrellas & waiter service at our disposal.

We truly enjoyed our stay, and though very pricey, we'll be back.

It is a luxurious resort in the East side of Dominican Republic., Nestled in La Romana, it is more a golf and polo resort that a beach resort. They have their own private beach (called Minitas), but if you want to see better beaches go to Dominicus and Bayahibe (20 minutes away towards the east), or drive 35 minutes to the northeast to Punta CAna, Bavaro, where the beaches are amazing with white sand, and nice restaurants around.
