Casa Colonial Beach & Spa in Playa Dorada, Dominican Republic

Basking under the shade of a palm tree as you gaze out across the clear expanse of pristine beach surrounding you, it will instantly become clear why Puerto Plata is affectionately known as "La Novia del Atlántico" (the Bride of the Atlantic). Just as the warm, white sand summons the sea, Puerto Plata's first Small Luxury Hotel of the World, Casa Colonial Beach & Spa warmly welcomes you to the gorgeous northern coast of the Dominican Republic. Casa Colonial's simple, yet refined façade calls back to Old World elegance, while the hotel's interior boasts a distinctly contemporary style—from eclectic ebony and white décor of the lobby to the marble flooring and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows. Comprised of just 50 well-appointed suites, come see for yourself why the best things truly do come in small packages.

Intimate and isolated, Casa Colonial's simple, sophisticated style is evident in every detail at the hotel. Awash in contrasting, yet complimentary tones of ivory and espresso, each living space—from the junior suite to the palatial penthouse—would make an the ideal place for you and yours to call home. The AAA Four-Diamond Resort's on-site spa, Bagua, embraces a cross-cultural approach to comfort and wellness, featuring the best of indigenous and European spa treatments. Unique, five-star amenities on the gated grounds, including an infinity rooftop pool, two delectable eateries, and three outdoor treatment gazebos make use of the visually stunning space on which Casa Colonial sits. Guests of Casa Colonial are also given access to the pools and amenities at the equally lavish sister hotel, Gran Ventana Beach Resort. Although the spa, restaurants, pools, fitness center, and 24-hour concierge service make it so guests never have to set foot outside of Casa Colonial, for those looking to explore and stay active, shopping, golf, and water sports are just minutes from the hotel. Or, if you choose to laze the day away at the beach, everything you need, from plush towels to comfortable chairs and oversized umbrellas are available. More than just a vacation spot, the Trip Advisor Travelers' Choice Award Winner for 2012 is the ideal destination to experience the beauty and stillness of an unspoiled locale and the simple luxury of paradise.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 week ago

A beautiful, small property, with outstanding personal service and attention from the staff. We spent a week there and loved the room, the beach, the food, the facilities, and, in particular, the staff, who went out of there way to accommodate every request. The food on the property was sometimes superb, often very good or excellent. We ate at the formal restaurant four nights and then switched to the beachfront and rooftop pool venues (which close ~6PM) for the final three nights. We liked the smaller plates at the more casual facilities. We highly recommend the seafood, but in particular the Branzino, ceviche and Mahi-mahi, the goat (cooked every which way), the Dominican stew (Friday only), and all liquor and mixed drinks - all of which were reasonably priced. Wine (all imported) was very expensive. Service was wonderful. The staff was warm and friendly (and in some cases, downright charming), and came to know and recognize us during our stay. Beachfront, poolside, and anywhere else, there were always folks to take care of any request - umbrellas, beach chairs, drinks, food, etc. Front desk staff was very helpful with logistical assistance etc. The beach was lovely and generally well maintained. The rooftop pool was gorgeous, and also beautifully maintained. As mentioned elsewhere, the general location of this place is a collection of much larger, louder, all-inclusive resorts. So we were subject to occasional music and crowd noise from the neighbors - but that was far less intrusive than what we'd normally encounter any day in season on Cape Cod. The room was huge, well maintained, and very luxuriously appointed. We stayed in #20, garden-view, which had a lovely balcony. Because we were there to unwind, we never left the resort itself. On the down side for this resort area, the level of trash in the water (and amount that washed up with the tides on the beach) was surprisingly high - not something we expected or that you would ever see anywhere in the US. Note that this is not an issue with the resort - they did their best to keep the beach area clean. But if you enjoy long walks along the beach, be prepared to dodge trash and crowds along the way. We would (and probably will) plan a return visit.

Amazing resort with a very attentive staff, very professional! The room was very luxurious and the amenities were amazing! Beautiful views of the coastline, and the rooftop infinity pool was extremely nice. Not a large hotel, this is a boutique hotel with only 50 rooms so the staff gets to know you by name. I never felt like a hotel guest but rather like a guest in their personal home. Food was amazing, room service amazing and even the gym was rather decent for the size of the hotel.

If you want the royal treatment, this is the place! We stayed here Feb. 12 - 16 and it was so much more than I expected. First Class all the way. We had room 39, ocean front room. So very nice. We also did the romantic dinner on the beach, It was so worth it. after dinner we came back to a surprise, lit candles and rose pedals in the tub and on the bed. we ordered room service for breakfast, what a nice touch they did. I would go back here in a heart beat. The staff is awesome, they go out of there way to please you. The bed is just right. we slept like a baby every night. Food is outstanding. This place is a must see. I will always have fond memories of the Casa Colonial Beach hotel.

If you are in the mood of 100% relaxation this is an awesome option. It is 5 star experience from the time you check in until you check out. It's a Boutique style hotel with very nice private beach and pool. Drinks and food are also very good, rooms are amazing.

My husband and I just returned from Puerto Plata. Casa Colonial was not our original destination when we planned our trip. Our original accommodations were in nearby Cabarete, and we found the area to be much too loud for our tastes. So, being a Trip Advisor contributor, I decided to look up resorts online and everything kept bringing me back to Casa Colonial. And I am glad it did!! I can't say enough about this beautiful hotel. It really won us over. Quiet, relaxing, peaceful, luxurious, clean, upscale... I can go on and on and I'll run out of adjectives. Everything we wanted it to be, it far exceeded our expectations! The beach front was spectacular and it was so nice to be pampered with nice lounge chairs and having someone there to get the cushions and towels for you. There was no need to save seats at the beach!! It was quiet on the beach, no loud music or crowds. There was great food as well. There are two places that you can eat breakfast and lunch. One is on the ground level, beach front, and the other is on the rooftop. The views there were gorgeous and also had an infinity pool and four hot tubs. There is also an upscale restaurant on site for dinner. Can't way enough about the food at dinner. Michaela was our server two nights and she was pleasant and fun to chat with! Felipe worked at the front door as a bus boy and he was also very good at his job; personable and went out of his way for us. The hotel is in a resort community and you can walk to a little shopping center if you'd like, or there is a golf cart that will drive you and pick you up should you choose. Visit the spa as well! I enjoyed the BEST massage given by Berenice!! I wish that I could recall the name of the manager that checked us in upon our arrival; he was so accommodating and welcoming upon our arrival and helpful throughout our stay. If you are looking for an upscale vacation spot, this is it.
