We had an absolute blast at the Casa Marina Reef. And will definitely be back VERY soon!!! First the resort, yes the rooms are simple BUT for the price we paid we weren't expecting anything spectacular! They were clean and comfortable and thats all that matters.. PLUS who goes on vacation to stay in the room anyway!!! The staff were all fantastic and VERY helpful! Especially the bellman who we called Maximus all week by mistake! haahaa!!! The pools are clean and relaxing and cold which was nice because it was HOT out!! The beaches are great. The food was great too!! The buffet is typical but we loved the food! We only managed to go to the Mexican restaurant because we were too busy in the evenings!
The number one thing I loved about the resort is that it is in the middle of Sosua and Sosua is a fantastic town! We spent a lot of time off the resort at the local pubs. Do not be afraid to venture outside of the resort, it is VERY safe and everyone is super friendly. You will get haggled by people trying to braid your hair or sell you jewelry but all you have to do is kindly say no and just keep walking and they will leave you along. As long as you are friendly about it they are super nice!!! The Jolly Roger (pub a block away from the resort) is THE PLACE TO GO!!! Their beer is always flowing and cheap and their food is FANTASTIC!!! We ate there a lot mainly because we have friends who work there!
We will be back to the Casa Marina this year for sure!! It was our best vacation yet.. and that is saying something since the last vacation we had was our honeymoon and the vacation before that is where my husband and I met... heehee!! You couldn't ask for a better place!! (I've been to the 5 star resorts before and I would MUCH prefer the Casa Marina to them).
PS for those of you who would prefer the 5 star resorts please don't go to the casa marina because you will spend the week complaining and it will ruin other peoples vacations!! You get more than what you pay for at the Casa Marina for sure but it is a 3.5 star resort!! We had a few people on our flight down and back that complained the entire week because they were used to 5+star places where they would pay $3000 per person...
