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

- Golf Course
- Handicap Accessible

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
Particiapted in a conference where friends and family came along. Every moment was a blast. Special thanks to Kellin at the bar who introduced me to so many different rums. Rooms, food, pool all awesome. Hope to be back soon!!
Rented Los Tamarindos 23 from Casa De Campo this August for a family trip. Great house and great service. We played tennis and went to the beach daily. Last year we rented a villa through VRBO. The advantage there is it’s cheaper with more choices. There are many things included with the Casa villa which evens the price out like carts, breakfast and the resort fee. A plus too is they fix things that need fixing like toilets and WiFi. We always felt super safe and disagree with the many travelers who think the restaurants are very pricey. We think they are at most in line with similar places at home. We’ll be back for sure.
Stayed for a little over a week at a private villa rented over AirBNB. The property was amazing but if I had to recommend I would offer that guests interested in a villa stay at the Villa offered by Casa de Campo and not the private owners through airbnb- as these are their private homes and each will have different rules/feelings about renting out their properties which may affect your stay. The villa where we stayed included daily butler and maid service- and the villa owners were adamant that one of their staff members sleep there while we stayed which was awkward for our family, being that we were travelling with young children and elders and overall required less attention from service and wanted to cook our own meal it seemed as if the kitchen was kind of off-limits as the staff was working out of the kitchen. Just something to consider. Aside from the private villa/ villas offered by casa de campo the resort itself is literally unparalleled. Basically a self-sufficient city on its own- there is no need to ever leave the resort, there are nightclubs bars, the beach, pools (in addition to the pool and jacuzzi in the villa)- ad service was unparalleled. I would recommend renting a golf cart, as it would add to the overall fun and vacation mentality of being on the property. Restaurant options are abundant at the marina and Altos de Chavon tourist attraction is inside the resort premises as well. SIMPLY AMAZING!
