Recent guest reviews

Casa Bonita is a beautiful place to stay, very quiet if you're looking to rest and have a peaceful vacation, I had an awesome room with with a nice clean king size bed a beautiful balcony with a great view, having the best of both worlds, the mountains and the sea. the room service was excellent, but they need to improve the restaurant service, drinks, food, etc.

WE went back to casa bonita this time with my in laws. Again it was a real nice experience with a great multicolor sunrise. The service was great as it was the last time. They make you feel at home with everything you ask is please rightly. Definitely is a place to come back again.

Do yourself a favor and visit the magical place,if u like roughing it,with a touch of class,look no further than Casa Bonita,friendly helpful staff.Everything is not out of reach for this fantastic team.Easy to book going to see Bahia de las Aglas,they are sure to assist in each and every thing u need,Travellingf alone,or with family,u have to stay in the beautiful place.Where else can u make a pizza in the forest.☺️

We truly enjoyed our visit to Casa Bonita with our group of 17. Location is a bit remote ( about 3 hour drive from Santo Domingo on good roads, but we would try Helicopter service next time). Rooms are on the rustic side but very comfortable. Suite is very nice with great view and terrace with jacuzzi. The private house is convenient for family with its own pool and full kitchen but access up an unpaved road may not be ideal for everyone. The palapa/restaurant and pool area have wonderful views of mountains on one side and ocean on the other. Truly special! Spa was wonderful with simple treatments on open air gazebos next to river. The on site activities such as hiking, zip lining and make your own pizza are all very well organized and lots of fun. We particularly enjoy the personal attention of the staff and owners! Can's wait to visit again and see future development of this property.

I cant say nothing about the views but when it comes to facilities and amenities they really need to get to it, employes are good and try to please you in any way they can, rooms ... bed and sheets need to be looked at, you can here the motorcycles coming in and out of the hotel, and guest in other rooms can also be constantly heard, the restaurant is average and to expensive for the quality, the pool is extreeeemmly cold and can not be enjoyed, these are things that i understand can be taken care of in the near future, please review your rates as i find it to expensive as to what you offer for this rate at the moment. I was highly recomended but it seems the hotel has changed its operator....

The room was small, dark and somewhat worn, however very clean. The bathroom was modern and had nice toiletries stocked for use. The hotel is part of the Small Luxury Hotels collection, but is not as nice as the other hotels in this group. Given the limitations of the Dominican Republic and the other hotels available, this one definitely had its charms. The staff was attentive. Internet was good. View was very nice. Food was fresh. It was rainy when we were there, so we needed bug repellent. It is a good place to be a base as you explore the nearby national parks and beaches. The driveway is deadly. I was told that it always looks washed out. We appreciated having an SUV. We were there for a birding trip and there were a lot of interesting birds on the property - we did not need to travel far.

This resort is not in one of the touristy areas of the Dominican Republic. It takes a few hours to get there, but well worth the effort. The surrounding areas and villages are one of the few "old Caribbean" experiences you can find. Rural, rustic and exceptionally friendly people. We went to several beaches and we were the only non-locals. The resort itself is well-maintained and modern. Wi-fi in the room was fine. The view from the infinity pool is as good as it gets. Breakfast is good. We only had dinner there one time but enjoyed it immensely. The best part of the whole experience was the people. Every single staff member demonstrated a true friendliness. They don't just want to serve you, they become friends. Everyone that comes into direct contact with you will greet you by name and shake your hand. Ramon, the guest services director, personally showed us around the local villages and even took us to meet his family and friends. He will be a friend for life! If you want to experience the Caribbean as it was and should be, without all of the influence of mass tourism, yet still be in a modern, luxury resort...this is the place to be!

In this part of the DR you will not find a better romantic place. Food is far above any restaurant as well. Peaceful, quiet, romantic. Spa is impressive with great staff, rooms are elegant, textured. Staff have been there for many years and know how to treat customers right. Been visiting this gem for 20 years.

Very beautiful grounds. Outstanding service, Spa is unique and sorrounded by nature. Lots of activities and places to see around the Resort. Pool area and Restaurant/Bar conveniently located with amazing ocean views. Great place to relax and enjoy Nature, perfect for a romantic couples get away.

The hotel is pretty clean and tiddy overall. Food is quite decent, taste wise. Althou the menu is really limited. The personel is really charming and customer oriented! Wifi was awful. Rooms have hot water and the view is beautiful. Be aware that mosquitos may be around since the rooms are near a mountain. But in my case there was mosquito repellent on the room.
