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
We are due an agreed credit of $2,992.32 to our credit card account. The resort claims to have issued it but our Mastercard account shows no record of it. They have lots of excuses and now say the burden is on us to somehow "claim" the credit from our credit card company. I inquired of our credit card company who says nothing is required from us for them to be able to issue the credit to our account. Casa de Campo has behaved dishonestly and has not honored their promise to us and still owes us $2,992.32.
I stayed with my husband during March and we absolutly loved this hotel! Food is amazing, staff is extremely helpful and the rooms (especially the beds) are fantastic! For sure we will be coming back!
We were visiting for a two night stay last week, and although our room wasn't ready upon arrival, we had a very nice lunch in La Caña (overlooking the pool) while we waited. Service was great there, too.
Our room, in the 400s, was spacious with a great view. Everything was very clean and fresh. The golf cart was fun to drive, and we enjoyed getting around with it. There were two pools, one of which more suited to laps, and the staff were great there. They wasted no time offering, and then bringing, towels and setting up our chaise lounges. They also brough cold bottled water automatically.
We left after two nights, as was our plan, and continued on to one night in Santo Domingo, and when we returned the following day to Punta Cana, the hotel was full and there was a problem with them not receiving our prepaid reservation through booking.com We had quite a wait getting it sorted out. And then, of course, the wait for the room.
The housekeepers were very nice and friendly, and eager to please. They were quick with any special requests such as a sewing kit, extra waters, etc.
The marina area was very nice, and the variety of restaurants, shops, and services offered was great. Also, Altos de Chavon, which we visited in the day time, was very pretty, and quite unique. It felt a wee bit lonely, although the stores, restaurants and shops were open, and I would imagine that place is best visited in the evening, when there is more activity.
The shuttles in between these locations was very good, and regularly running so we never had much of a wait anywhere. Also, at the marina, there are big golf carts providing "within the marina" shuttle service on top of the bus. Very well done.
We will definitely return to this spot, which is an oasis in the Dominican Republic.
Casa de Campo is a unique destination, we had a house there for 1 year, the hotel has been redone, the beach "Las Minitas" as well and "Altos de Chavon" is gorgeous, they reproduced an Italian village with restaurants, a little church, boutiques and an open amphitheater for concerts. The golf courses are great with very nice views.
Golf carts and amenities were great but not much beach..very tiny and the Bang Bang music everywhere- I wish they would make it more lounge..even the restaurants were banging out "disco" music..not very pleasant for a relaxing vaca. Otherwise- great service, rooms clean, pleasant staff. food options were not much after two days you have eaten almost everything. Golf Carts were fun and Altos de Chavon was amazing!
