Casa de Campo Resort and Villas
What We Love
- Jetsetter 2015 Best of the Best Finalist: Best All-Inclusive
- The all-inclusive option covers three meals daily, unlimited drinks (excluding specialty congas and premium brand liqueurs), a round of skeet shooting, and unlimited horseback riding, tennis, and non-motorized water sports, so you won’t have to lift a finger, even to sign a bill
- 2015 Jetsetter Hotel Food Award Winner
- The resort’s “complete supplement” program redefines all-inclusive dining (think cassava empanadas, savory Dominican stewed goat at Lago Grill and regional Italian fare on hand-painted plates at La Piazzetta); the Beach Club by Le Cirque and the posh La Caña by Il Circo are also standout restaurants
- Three 18-hole golf courses, including Pete Dye’s top-rated Teeth of the Dog
- Located less than an hour outside Punta Cana, yet hidden on a quiet strip of the La Romana coastline
What To Know
- Resort sprawl means you may need a golf cart to reach many amenities (good news: they’re free)
- Private Minitas Beach is petite, so serious beach bums may need to venture beyond the resort gates
- A la carte dining adds up quickly here, but meal plans can offer value for longer stays
- The all-inclusive and break-inclusive options will appear once you select dates below
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site

Caribbean-chic. Handcrafted mahogany furnishings punctuate the resort’s minimalist interiors and anchor the open-air spaces, which are characterized by elegant tile and natural light. A muted palette sets the stage for splashes of color afforded by local crafts and glasswork. And though the resort has a distinctly indigenous vibe, its 2009 renovation ensures updated amenities fit for any modern hideaway.
Bed and Bath
As its name suggests, rooms and suites at Casa de Campo relay all the comforts of home, with the usual mod cons — LCD flat-screens and iPod-compatible alarm clocks — accenting contemporary wood furnishings and crisp European linens. There’s a notable absence of tropical motifs here, creating more of an understated elegance than a sensory assault. The notably large guestrooms (764 square feet, to be exact) come with louvered doors opening onto sun-bathed private patios or balconies.
Of its 14 bars and restaurants, La Caña by Il Circo (of Le Cirque culinary fame) is a standout. Its fresh Mediterranean fare is best enjoyed alfresco overlooking the manicured gardens and pools. Between meals the active can choose from three Pete Dye–designed championship golf courses, a world class tennis club with 13 Har-Tru courts, an equestrian center offering polo matches, trail rides, and show jumping, and a host of water sports amenities on the posh marina or private Minitas Beach. Whatever the diversion, a quick stop at the holistic spa, which offers a full menu of classic and athletically driven massages, is sure to rejuvenate.
In the Area
With shopping and dining, golf and tennis, and a slew of other diversions on-site, you may never leave the Casa de Campo enclave. But you should: Altos de Chavón, La Romana’s modern replica of a 16th-century village, is ripe with restaurants, art galleries and talleres (crafts shops) featuring works by local artisans. Pick up a unique souvenir at Everett Designs or visit Altos de Chavón School of Design, the two-year art school boasting a partnership with prestigious Parsons in New York. And if the gates of Casa de Campo don’t offer enough seclusion, coordinate with the concierge to plan a catamaran trip to nearby islands, including Catalina and Saona, for a day of picnicking and plunging.
How to Get There
We could not recommend Casa de Campos more. We got picked up at the airport an hour later we were in our private villa, with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and tons of space. Our maid Elvira Guerrero prepared a fresh breakfast for us every day, and there was tons to do all over the property. The beach, horseback riding, restaurants, the marina - too much to do in a weekend. We definitely need to come back soon for a longer visit.
Wonderful vacation spot for the value. Outstanding service and friendly attentive staff in all venues. Great variety of cuisine selections to choose from with service to match. Just can’t say enough about how great our stay was.
Great location for couples. Very secure and great service
We did not have to drive to anything in our car. You get a golf cart and you can access most restaurants, shopping and golf easily. Main lodge has great pools, bars and even a cigar roller. Would highly recommend this spot for long weekends.
I was lucky enough to visit Casa de Campo for a work promotional trip, and one of the activities was a one hour massage at the Spa. I was lucky enough to be paired with Santa Yvisan as my masseuse, and ordered up a deep-tissue massage. She was absolutely perfect in her hand pressure, pushing just up to, but not into pain! She worked every muscle, from feet to the neck, and I came out as limber as a toddler- even after 18 holes of golf in the morning.
I’d give her 10 out of 10 stars, if an option!
We rented a very nice villa on the ocean side. The villa was nice and it had 4 full-time staff which was way too many for our family of five. I did not feel comfortable having so many people around. I was annoyed at the numerous golf carts traveling during peak times. But overall, I'm glad we went, but not in a rush to go back, there are so many other beautiful places. Some good restaurants, some average. Going out of the compound was more interesting.
