You can't help but to enjoy the enchanting ambiance of this hotel especially
in the evening with all the candles.

The restaurant let us down. The service bordered an very poor. Slow
and unattentive. It took longer to get two glasses of wine than it took to get our meal.

The meal was OK. Mostly bland seemimgly prepared for the average appetities of
the masses. The sterak was prepared to order but was tough.

Other dishes were very good. for the prices (which we don't mind paying), we expected
a better dining experience.

The ambiance at Santa Domingo is very pretty.

We went for Sunday brunch. It was good.
The selection of items is very good.

Many of the plates are meant to be served cold.
For instance the fruits and other items.

But, other items are meant to be served hot such as
eggs and other items. These items were not very
good as it seems they sat in their service trays for
some time and were room temperature at best by
the time you got them back to the table.

Service was OK given you basically serve yourself at
a buffet. But, the servers were unattentive refilling your
coffee if you desired.

Overall, its an OK brunch.

We normally stay away from hotels because they
are not known for fine cuisine but rather for feeding
the masses.

Anyway, same holds true at Santa Domingo.
We stayed in one evening because it was raining
outside.

Food that was delivered was del tiempo (luke warm)
at best. The steak was done to order but was far from
a great steak. The salsas were bland which I suppose they
have to be to meet the taste of the masses.

Service was Ok.

Prices are excessive for the quality.

We stopped into the hotel
to visit the ruins but decided to try
the restauarnt for dinner.


The soups we tried were bland.

Our steak was overcooked from what
was ordered. The fish was very good.

Service was OK too.

Pricey for what we received overall.

The location and ambiance of Casa Domingo
is as nice as one would find in Antigua.


The food is average overall and so is the service
which was slower than expected.

One of us had a steak that was overcooked.

Sauces are bland.

Prices are high for what we recieved.
