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.

To be honest with you, I hadn't been in the northern coast of the Dominican Republic for a long time. Both Puerto Plata and Sosua had fallen on hard times as tourist destinations. So, when my wife told me that we were going to Casa Colonial in Playa Dorada, Puerto Plata, I was a little bit skeptical. More so when I drove into the Playa Dorada hotel complex, a place still encrusted in the far reaches of my mind as engulfed in decay, low quality cuisine, and beach full of sellers peddling from massage to hair braids Bo Derek style. The road to the hotel was unassuming and narrow, which arose my fears even more. But what a surprise, the hotel front had an air if quiet dignity and elegance. The lobby was homely and the reception service was courteous and efficient. Rooms, mine had a great view to the bay, were ample in a clean colonial style. The breakfasts were great and abundant, I particularly loved the Dominican breakfast with mashed plantain, fried salchichon(look for it in the dictionary) and eggs. The restaurant, Lucia, with a great view to a luscious patio, with the flora and fauna of the region. Good food, try the chivo and Chilean sea bass. The service is first class. And, no noise. Great place to spend a vacation.

My friend and I were traveling around the Dominican Republic and decided to stop in here on a whim after her aunt offered her two nights at a resort as a birthday present. My god, I'm glad we did. I've never stayed in more luxurious accommodations in my life. From the moment we got there, when the man at check-in asked us if we wanted champagne or fruit juice, from the moment we left and the incredibly kind restaurant staff packed us a lunch, we felt like every single need was taken care of. Our room was tastefully decorated, looked out on a serene oceanfront view, and always smelled good because of the incense housekeeping burns in there every day. We each visited the spa and were wowed by the service we got there (we made sure to spend some time lounging in the steam rooms afterwords and hitting the high-quality gym as well!). Every single meal we ate was top-notch, with top-notch service to go along with it. Our final morning, the staff even set up a table on the beach so that we could eat as the sun lit up the ocean. If I ever have a honeymoon, I want it to be here. My friend and I joked that we must have accidentally gotten married and were on our honeymoon without knowing it because our stay was so luxurious. Amazing in every way.

I take my son on vacation during winter break every year. He teaches high school in the South Bronx and by February, he is in dire need of some R & R. Casa Colonial is the perfect place to decompress. The service is friendly and attentive without being obtrusive; the property is intimate and immaculately maintained but at the same time unpretentious. The food was a sophisticated and delicious mix of local and continental fare. We had a spacious room about 100 feet from the ocean. There is a gorgeous rooftop pool with spectacular view of the ocean. By the end of our too short stay, we got to to know all the staff by name - Manuel, Armando, Carlos, Victoria, Charo, Ramon, Raul and of course, our favorite bartender, Wody. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Casa Colonial to any one looking for a first class, but reasonably-priced, pampered experience.

We stayed for 7 nights at Casa Colonial in April 2017. My wife and I spend approximately 50 nights a year in hotels...this ranks as one of the best I have ever enjoyed. The customer service was detail was too small to be be overlooked. Whatever and whenever we needed something the staff were unfailingly generous and welcoming. Casa Colonial is a member of the SLH (small luxury hotel) group. Their membership is well deserved. Beautiful infinity pool on the roof adjacent to four whirlpools all of which provide a wonderful view of the ocean. Very good gym, excellent spa, tremendous food...this hotel does everything right. Without a doubt we will be returning!

Not much of a person in search of pampering, but if you are, this would be the place to go in Puerto Plata. This resort is tucked into a cove, and has an outstanding pool area overlooking the beach, complete with great food and drink. The beach is also a great place to tuck your toes into the sand, and do a little swimming. There are nearby all inclusive resorts, which had a bit of noise spilling out, but nothing too significant. The staff was outstanding, but they need more people to visit them. If you make your way to Puerto Plata, be sure to stay at the Casa Colonial.
