Superb customer service, cuisine and atmosphere
Some former guests were disappointed with the resort's beach
Sandwiched between the sands of Puerto Plata's coveted Playa Dorada and the greens of the Playa Dorada Golf Course, this Small Luxury Hotels of the World outpost – which participates in the brand's INVITED rewards program – wins guests over with its relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff and beautiful decor. Casa Colonial Beach & Spa's 50 suites are dressed in beige and cream hues and are outfitted with oversized Roman tubs, separate walk-in showers, minibars, free Wi-Fi access and private balconies or patios. When you're refreshed and ready to go, Casa Colonial encourages you to tee off at the nearby fairways, offering 20% off of green fees at the club. If you're not one for hitting the links, previous visitors recommend indulging in a treatment at Bagua Spa, strolling through the hotel gardens or simply lounging by the rooftop infinity pool. The only aspect of Casa Colonial that some past guests cited as unsatisfactory is the beach. When you've worked up an appetite, grab a bite to eat at Lucia (the fine dining establishment) or Veranda (a casual eatery open daily for breakfast and lunch). Both eateries earn ample praise from reviewers.

Critic Reviews


Casa Colonial Beach and Spa is a swish, four-pearl property located on Playa Dorada beach. The hotel's 50 rooms exude timeless style, featuring decor inspired by colonial-era aesthetics.



Designed by architect Sara Garcia, sophisticated Casa Colonial, a boutique property exuding refinement and relaxation on the quiet end of the long beach, is a surprise among the all-inclusives of Playa Dorada. The suites are sumptuous—with Frette linens and an inviting open bath-to-bedroom floor plan—but those that do not overlook the beach are not as stellar as the public areas.
