Last time we were in the Dominican Republic, it was at an all-inclusive in Punta Cana. A lovely, "exclusive" one, but....Casa Colonial felt like heaven!
Casa Colonial is the antithesis of those mega-resorts. It is small, quiet, and exudes this feeling of luxury. A tiny gem of a place, it never felt crowded. No waking up at the crack of dawn to reserve a chaise; there were more than enough on the beach or at the beautiful rooftop pool. The beach itself was nice (lots of seaweed, but, it's an ocean!), and the pool is stunning. The staff is helpful but not obsequious.
We were, as a professional courtesy, upgraded to a suite. Our room was definitely bigger than our last apartment!! But, we glimpsed some of the non-suite rooms, and those looked large and beautiful as well. The bathroom was HUGE, and there was a bathtub on one of the balconies, overlooking the ocean. Heaven, I tell you!
We ate at all three of the options--the pool deck, the "casual" restaurant, and Lucia. All were good, and while Lucia is pricey, it is not outrageous. Most appreciated was the LACK of evening entertainment; no noisy music, no ridiculous "shows," no party motivators.
If you are looking for a quiet, (romantic), luxurious getaway....look no further. Casa Colonial is outstanding, from start to finish.
Can't wait to get back myself!
