“Understated Elegance, Privacy, Fabulous Spa”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

I stayed here for a few days before boarding a dive boat for a week. It is utterly fabulous. First class everything in both ambiance and customer service, from the room, to the food (good vegetarian options), the views, and the spa. I will be back!

Room Tip: I had an ocean view Junior Suite. . . booked through Expedia and got a very good discount.

I am late to post a review as I was there in early January. The weather had been rainy, but excluding our first day, it was beautiful. I think that we got lucky. Not really knowing much about the resort, I booked a Junior Suite with Lanai on the first floor Ocean view. The room was Very nice,but a little small. We asked to upgrade rooms and they were very accommodating and offered us a 2 room suite for a nominal up-charge. To me it was worth it. We also booked the "romance package", I also felt this was a good value and having them pick you up at the airport as a VIP and expedite your customs clearing in a private lounge was GREAT!!! Never experienced anything like this before. As far as the restaurant, we did enjoy Lucia BUT it was very expensive and found the menu to be somewhat limited. After 4 nights my wife and I ordered different things, we felt like we had exhausted the menu. The other restaurant on site was very good and a good alternative. I loved the fish taco's and chicken sandwich. Service on every end was fabulous. Definitely a world class destination. You truly feel like you are the only one at the resort. The spa was very nice, but my wife felt like she got the short end on her massage but I enjoyed mine. She likes a deep massage and she got a light rubdown.
As part of the romance package, we had dinner from Lucia served on the beach.... what a special evening. The night was unforgettable as we got back to our room. WE were welcomed with votive candles on the floor with rose petals leading through the bedroom to the bathtub that was filled with a bubble bath with rose petals. Truly one of the most romantic experiences of my life!! Oh, one more thing, the beds were heavenly!!!
What else can be said... truly a magical place for a Honeymoon that we will always remember!

Room Tip: We did oceanfront, but don't feel that the courtyard rooms would be a disappointment.

We stayed here in March for 4 nights. The hotel is very beautiful and the rooms are large and very comfortable. The bed was super comfy and I loved how the bathtub was open to the room. One of our favorite things about the hotel was the roofdeck pool and 4 hottubs. We spent a lot of time up there and even caught a gorgeous sunrise on our last day. They are open 24 hours a day so you can go up there are night and look at the stars from the hottub. The restaurant Lucia was excellent. We loved eating breakfast everyday outside on the patio and had the pastry basket every day. I had a massage at the spa and the spa is also very beautiful and spacious. The hotel staff was friendly but in a more formal 5 star hotel way. The location is ok, there is a retail plaza which is a very close 4 min walk or golf cart ride away which has a few touristy shops and pizza hut. They do a good job keeping the beach clean. The ocean is swim-able and pretty clear. The only disadvantage is that the hotel is in between a ton of all inclusive resorts which can be loud at times. The chairs on the casa colonial beach front are all spread out and since the hotel is very small there are always chairs at the beach and pool available. Overall a very beautiful classy and comfortable hotel we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

I have spent a weekend in casa colonial and have nothing to say but compliments. Everything was perfect. Did i mention the food? Oh yes the restaurant has a spanish chef who is worldclass. If you are around northern dom republic miss casa colonial at your own peril

This hotel is perfect for a pampered, relaxed vacation. There are limited activities in the area.the mornings are the most pleasant, as it becomes very windy each afternoon. The service is the best and the food is very good.
