Recent guest reviews

We loved the staff, facility and service quality, aroma, seclusion, and no crowds. What a place to recharge your batteries. We have no complaints what so ever.

Fantastic location. View from our ground floor beach front room was wonderful. Restaurants were very pleasing with goof food and excellent service. Expensive but worth it.

The best hotel boutique, the best personal and the food is amazing, recommend for all the persons.

This is a beautiful, family-oriented hotel. The people who work there are all very friendly and helpful and provided great service. The food in the Lucia and Veranda restaurants was excellent. The beach was clean and beautiful. The property is lush in beautiful vegetation. My wife and I really enjoyed everything about our stay. The hotel lived up to the reviews I read before booking. From check-in to check-out, with three days in between, we always felt very welcome and served whether it was at beachside, pool, restaurant, lobby, assistance with cabs, ir in the condition of our room. The room had a beautiful basket of fresh fruit when we arrived, bottled water and coffee refilled daily, plenty of towels, and chocolates set out at night, in addition to being beautifully appointed like the rest of the hotel. Thank you to the Staff, and we will definitely return if we have the opportunity.

By far, the best hotel in Playa Dorada, Puerto Plata! Five-star service, staff, and accommodations. The only included meal is (full) breakfast, and it is heavenly. However - The restaurant and bar offer gourmet dinner fare and top shelf liquor at a fraction of the price you would pay here in the U.S. Alternately, a short walk along the beach in either direction provides access to a variety of dining options. We definitely will stay at Casa Colonial again!

Hotel adults only. Quiet but it was low season. Staff attentive. Food good but limited menu and some dishes not available. Spa very nice. Rooms cleaned but floors not swept. As hotel is on the beach, some sand got on the floor and was not picked up. Hotel a long way from places.

We loved this hotel. It was gracious, peaceful, and quiet. Every detail just wrapped us in luxury.

As many have already said, the hotel, staff and food are exceptional. The prices are appropriate, and the alcohol is also reasonably priced. This is NOT an all inclusive; as a result, expect a very quiet and intimate experience.

Our stay was serene and relaxing. The hotel staff could not have been nicer. We used all of the hotel's facilities, the beach, all three restaurants, the gym, and the spa. Everything was perfect. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and maintained to perfection. I loved all the blooming orchids lining the pathways. Even the stray cats were friendly. The wifi service was good although it did require me to sign on multiple times each day, but that was not a huge inconvenience. I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful hotel. It was very relaxing to have a private pool and jacuzzi upstairs. So happy they serve tostones - my favorite snack to eat.

This hotel is beautiful, with ultimate in service and food. We were greeted very warmly and all the staff were very polite and caring.

From the moment u walk thru those doors ur treated like a king!!! Unbelievable!!! All the staff always with a smile ready to help!!! Hotel is sparkling clean! Rooms get cleaned and fresh towels twice a day! Definitely going back there again!!!

A beautiful place with a beautiful staff! It doesn't get any better then this!

The staff at Casa Colonial really made our experience so much better. The hotel is gorgeous! If you are looking for a retreat and to get pampered, this is your place. Rooms are clean, big and comfortable. Food is not typical of the country as they have an italian restaurant, but it is still good. Breakfast is by far the best and not too expensive.

Pros: This Resort in NOT ALL INCLUSIVE. So if you are looking for loads of free drinks, crowded beach, and mediocre food, this place is not for you. This is a 5 star resort with a chef that produces top notch food. You will never be disappointed with your meal. When you walk on the beach and stroll by the other all inclusive resorts the mood changes from relaxed to crowded. Walking onto the Casa Colonial Beach is like walking into another world. You are treated as Royalty here. I can't say enough about the level of service and food that this place offers. You do have to pay for drinks, but they are actually very reasonable (<$4 for beer). Cons: There are no shows, activities or dance parties at this resort, only a piano player that played on Friday & Saturday (To be fair there are only 50 rooms with maybe a handful of couples there at a time so having shows / dance parties is not reasonable) Also, there can be quite a buildup of seaweed on the beach when the sea is rough, but they clean it everyday. Pro tip: Walk to the left down the beach about 500 meters (maybe 3 or 4 resorts down) and you will find a mini coral reef that you can snorkel and see fish!!! The visibility in front of The Casa Colonial is not that good. Conclusion: My wife and I were looking for a relaxing week to enjoy wonderful food and we found it! 15 Min from the Peurto Plata Airport, right on the beach!!! We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to kick back, relax, and be treated like Royalty!!

Very quiet and relaxing hotel, the grounds are kept nice and the food is pretty good. The staff is very helpful. This hotel is not all-inclusive so you pay for EVERYTHING and it's not cheap. Good for couples who want a relaxing romantic vacation. Only 10 rooms were occupied when we stayed at Casa Colonial.

I cannot say enough about this place -- truly the most amazing experience I've ever had. Just as a frame of reference for anyone reading this... I am a very well-traveled New Yorker (Manhattan), and, while I'm not a snob, I know and appreciate fine hotels and restaurants. This hotel is beyond top-notch. From the minute you walk in, your jaw drops... the lobby is beautiful, and you're immediately greeted by the beverage of your choice (my girlfriend and I opted for champagne). After a quick check-in, we were given a complete tour of the grounds, including the restaurant (Lucia -- I'll get to that in a moment), the spa, the gym, roof infinity pool, etc. The grounds are beautiful and impeccably kept... and when I say that I did not see a single insect anywhere, not even a fly (in the room, in the restaurant, on the beach, at the pool, etc.), I am not kidding. The place is state of the art, beautifully decorated, and clean as can be. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the service was great. Drinks and lunch are served beach-side if you wish. My girlfriend and I flew down on a Thursday and stayed through Sunday -- the place was virtually empty (it's small anyway, maybe 50 suites). We ventured down the beach in either direction to find other busier/trashy hotels, probably all-inclusives... you will not find this kind of thing at Casa Colonial, trust me. Breakfast (we opted for in-room on our patio) each morning was prompt and delicious. Lucia, the upscale restaurant on premises, was beautfiul and amazing. Service was A-1, and the food (mixed bag of fusion cuisine) was what you might find in an expensive New York City restaurant. Just unbelievable. I'd seriously give Casa Colonial a 6th star if I could. My girlfriend and I had such an amazing and romantic experience there. I thought the place was worth every penny. If you're bringing kids or are cost-conscious (although I didn't find it overly expensive considering how perfect this place is), then you may want to look at some other properties. Enjoy!

I went here with a friend for a relaxing and quiet weekend and it was perfect. Large rooms, the food was delicious, the spa was reasonably priced, the staff was helpful. There was some outside noise from the resort next door, but we were so relaxed it didn't bother us much. No nightlife, but that's what we were looking for so it was ideal.

This is a very nice and private hotel. Because of the small number of rooms, there were always choice beach chairs and spots in the restaurants and bars. When I booked this I couldn't tell if the hotels in Puerto Plata where right on the beach, but they are. Rooms are set back a bit and in the trees, but run right to the sand. We had a lovely stay. This hotel is within a large, private compound of beachfront hotels and has beautiful surroundings. The staff was always present and very helpful with transportation or any of our needs.
