Amidst all the recent news stories of US Citizens getting very sick and/or dying in Dominican Republic, my boyfriend and I decided to continue with our trip. We were well aware of all the reported illnesses/deaths, however there was one factor that kept us from cancelling our trip: Casa de Campo! We did a lot of research on all-inclusive resorts in DR, and ended up with this one for many reasons, including safety and security, amenities, and all the positive reviews we’ve read. We stayed for 10 days/9 nights in the hotel, with the all-inclusive package. (I cannot stress enough – do the all-inclusive package! It’ll save you money! I’ll write more about it later.) We flew into Punta Cana, and hired DAT (Dominican Airport Transportation) to take us to the resort. DAT is great and cheaper than booking transportation with the hotel; read their reviews on TripAdvisor too. Check-in at the Casa de Campo hotel was excellent. We received a glass of champagne and friendly service. We did book a “Superior Casita” which can either come with a king-bed or two double beds. We asked for a king bed on the second floor (only two floors at hotel); we were given a king bed but none were available on the second floor – because of this, they gave us a room that was next to the pool and had a great view of a golf course. We were very happy with this experience. The room was large, the bed was very comfortable, and the a/c was always working perfectly. Our room was a great reprieve after a day outside in the hot humid air. On top of this, the room was clean and the maid service was excellent; they’ll even leave you bottles of water after making-up your room. (Note: the water at Casa de Campo is treated however they still recommend guests drink from bottles of water!). Also with the maid service – the maids themselves were so nice and sweet! Always saying hello and good morning to us in passing. Each room comes with a golf cart which is greatly needed. It’s a huge place, so transporting yourself from the hotel to the beach, marina, Altos de Chavon, or elsewhere is a very nice amenity. (Note: golf carts are filled before you get the keys to your room. The gas is supposed to last you about 5 days, and there is a charge if you need more gas. For us two adults being mindful of this, we only used ¾ of a tank over the 9 days. It is doable if you are careful about your trips!). Food and drinks were also a great experience. Our top favorite restaurants are Chilango Taqueria and Pubbelly Sushi. Chilango has excellent tacos and drinks; we especially love the chips and pico de gallo which comes with toasted pumpkin seeds and two other sauces. Pubbelly Sushi has a variety of rolls; we recommend the shortrib gyoza on the appetizers list though! So tasty. The buffet (Lago Restaurant) was open for breakfast and lunch. They serve a variety of foods and everything was well-cooked and delicious. La Piazetta has excellent homemade pastas and a beautiful view. Note: when ordering salmon filets – make sure you tell the waiter if you want it well done. I don’t know if it’s an American thing or my own aversion, but I do not like eating raw salmon filets. I received one at La Casita and ate the well-cooked part of the filet which was delicious, but avoided the raw area. Just my recommendation if you’re strange like me. Another note: try the chicharron de pollo (Dominican fried chicken), and yuca everything. I love yuca and eating it boiled, fried, or mashed is an incredible life experience (that is dramatic, but anytime I saw yuca on the menu I’d get it at Casa de Campo). Also, it’s a Caribbean island – enjoy the fresh, sweet, and juicy fruits! If doing all inclusive, you’ll have an option of about 8+ different restaurants/bars. Keep in mind that there are actually a lot more restaurants in Casa de Campo (especially in La Marina area). That are a lot of options, however my one recommendation directed to Casa de Campo is that for any restaurants that are not included, you should offer a voucher to try the other restaurants for free, for one group on one day. My boyfriend and I were interested in some of the other restaurants, but the price of the food there is high and we didn’t want to try something expensive and end up not liking it. A voucher would at least let guests try something different – and if they like it enough, they may return! Speaking of food, do the all-inclusive package! All of our meals – for two adults, one appetizer and two entrees, maybe one drink each – was anywhere between $60 to $200 USD! That adds up if you eat three meals a day. With this package, you can also do horseback riding (very fun, unlimited), one round of skeet shooting (surprisingly fun for someone who hasn’t shot a shotgun before), and unlimited use of non-motorized water equipment (snorkeling, kayaks, paddle boards, peddle boats!). This package will save you money in the long run. For example, snorkeling gear is around $14 USD/person for 4-hours, horseback riding is around $38-$117 USD/person, and 25-round skeet shooting is around $40 USD/person. It all adds up in the end. Another recommendation for saving money on your Casa de Campo trip – bring your own sunscreen!!! I read reviews that said to buy bottles of sunscreen in the airport on your way there…I had three layovers in four airports and NONE of the stores in those airports sold sunscreen. Nada. Zilch. We ended up buying sunscreen at the resort, and it was $35 USD for each one – that was at the Carmen del Sol store (in the hotel), and the Nacional supermarket in La Marina. We figured out later that the cost may be due to the very high tourist tax (around 15%). If we had checked one bag and filled it with our own bottles of sunscreen, that would have been cheaper than spending the $100+ USD on the sunscreen at the resort. Or, just have one person in your party pack a quart-sized bag full of 3-ounce sunscreens, ha! We’d like to give a special shoutout to Alexis (he works at Coco Mar bar on Minitas beach) and Ramon at Lago Restaurant. These are two servers were attentive, friendly, and always had a smile! They made our trip to Casa de Campo even better. Overall, I’d highly recommend Casa de Campo to anyone who want to visit DR. It’s beautiful, it has a lot to do, and it is higher end so the food, drinks, and accommodations are top notch. Plus, driving around the villas in the golf cart, and seeing all the beautiful homes and landscaping – and pretending you could afford to buy one – is fun! We will definitely return someday!

I will not be going back. First we had to wait over 20 minutes at reception to even be assisted for check-in. We then had to wait over two hours past the check-in time to be given our room. Once they did, it didn’t even have the correct number of beds ready. We had to take our own luggage to the room and back when we left. Calling reception for anything was completely useless. They took forever to respond or call us back about something, if they even got back to us. We were locked out of our room when we had already confirmed a later checkout time with them. Etc. I would expect and accept all of this from a random chain hotel, but for a hotel of this price and supposedly quality, NONE of these issues should be happening. That being said, the facilities of the overall complex were good, including the beach/bars/restaurants, which is the only reason for the 3 stars. The housekeeping staff at the hotel were helpful and lovely. Our only issue was with the hotel itself, which seems outdated with incompetent reception and management. Read less
