Family wedding

Staff made wedding an incredable experience. Rooms were clean and made up every day. For a poor country we were taken care of. We were able to wonder downtown to some of the restaurants and bars and were very safe. Just need to keep an eye on your surroundings. Hotel for the value paid was great. Liquor was a little watered down but was plentiful. If you are a wine drinker only this is not the place to go.

Resort is nice.

Resort was beautiful. Offered quite a few activities you can play and the open bars decent for what you are paying for. I would recommend bringing your own mug or cup. The cups they give you are pretty small. The first couple of days, be prepared to get harassed a hundred times about going to their "presentation". By the third day they finally get the hint. The staff does a great job working with you if you don't speak the language. It's amazing how many languages the people there know. Thought the rooms were nice and the food wasn't bad. Only draw backs for use were the presentation harassments and the fact the it seems kind of darngerous to leave the resort and walk around. The area didn't look great but that just our opinion.

Short drive was the only option. Long drive would be more accurate but the Paradise Island trip was a good time. Great snorkeling!

Loved it!

We were a group of 15 and had a wonderful time! They have activities planned all day long....love Angy (one of the activity leaders). Traveled with people from 3 yrs- 68 yrs and all enjoyed the hotel and everything it offered. Please note there are two hotels....Casa Marina Reef and Casa Marina Beach. The two are connected and the only reason you need to know which one you are at is for when you check in! Otherwise all the facilties are the same.

NOT RECOMMENDED

I was there for 5 days and it was just horrible. Food was not what I expected, not a good variety. Some of the staff members were ok but the one particular lady at the front desk ( I even asked for her name) Rosa she has the worst customer service I've ever experience. I'm not sure if she doesn't know the mean of customer service. She was very unprofessional, her attitude was the worts. She never has an answer to any of our questions and didn't make an attempt to help us. I honestly was extremely disappointed. So disappoints

The worst resort ever!

If you paid a lot of money for your dream vacation, do NOT go to Casa Marina! You will be dessapointed...The food is the worst part....Why would they serv Hungarian Gulash on a "French night", as they called it???? Lots of birds and bugs were all over the food... One tipe of fruit on a meal????We are in a tropical resort!!!No frozen drinks???? To get to the bar it was a long trip....No refrigerator in the room, the AC was not working...Verry dissapointing....

Fantastic value vacation

Except for the reception staff we had an unbelievable experience with all the staff... from the housekeepers to the the waitresses they went out of there way to be friendly to us, esp our 15month old daughter. Beutyfull beach and pools...food and drinks were basic but acceptable. rooms were basic but clean. We had no problems with people pushing us to buy timeshares or services..they were available but if you weren't interested they weren't pushy. We only paid like $30 a night for the 3 of us for the all inclusive so it was a tremendous value.

Best Value

I have been to the Casa Marina many times and always run into travelers that I had met there before. There are two beachs and it is a great place to go to chill-out. The view from the out door bars and overlooking the beach are beautiful. The staff are hard working and friendly. The town of Sosua has a lively bar scene and is walkiing distance from the hotel . For the price, this hotel is the best value.
