Just returned from a vacation getaway from the cold and snow - haha.
Enjoyed my stay and will go back asap.
It did rain one day we were there. However we were on a day trip outing and would have nothing much to do if we hadn't gone.
Don't understand why people complain about WEATHER ... as if the staff could do anything about it.
For those who "would not recommend this resort to"seniors or older travellors" Maybe wait until you are one before criticizing - smile. I am 63, recovering from lung cancer, with more than a few health issues, and found all the staff more than helpful and considerate. Would not hesitate recommending this resort to any and all - juniors, seniors, young adults, families with children, romantic couples (We saw 3 weddings during the week we were there)
The food is NOT THE SAME as "back home" so maybe expect different tastes and varieties. I had NO ISSUES with the food - always something that I really enjoyed. If I had any complaint about the food it would be that you can only book a reservation at the 3 a la carte restaurants once during a weekly stay (may be different if you stay for a longer period.
Those who complained, in their reviews, about the resort making it difficult to book reservations ... all I can say is I guess they weren't paying attention the first day they arrived, when they would have been given a time and location to meet with their trip advisor ... commonly in the theatre at 9AM..
The rooms were adequate - we had a minor problem upon arrival - the patio door would not lock - and a couple of staff came to fix it within minutes.
The day trips that we took were literally amazing. I would recommend the Puerto Plata Runners day trip, as well as the all day trip on a catamarand, with llunch on board and 2 stops for snorkelling. Unfortunately due to personal health issues I was unable to participate, but the staff gave me more attention, to ensure I did not feel left out.
All in all I will be goiung back to Casa Marina again asap, and would recommend this resort to ANYONE.
