Casa de Campo Review

The country's most illustrious resort, which set the benchmark for luxury travel in the Caribbean decades ago, entered a new era with the dramatic renovation of its public spaces, rooms, and suites. Guests who have stayed here before are dazzled by the striking beauty of the new main area; its minimalist design and decor and the use of rich woods, open spaces, and neutral fabrics are set off by splashes of jewel tones from glass objets d'art. The pool complex and its popular swim-up bar have been transformed with shaded areas of natural wood and white canopies and cushions. Overlooking the pool from a new open-air terrace is the restaurant La Cana by IL Circo, the resort's second partnership with New York's Le Cirque. A state-of-the-art fitness center borders it; there are trellised platforms for yoga classes just outside on the sundeck. Room decor is by Dominican designers Patricia Reid and Myra González, the latter of whom also designed the public areas and has a more contemporary approach. Rooms are outfitted with fine European linens with intricate gold embroidery and cuddly duvets, rich mahogany, live orchids, 42-inch LCD TVs, and high-tech lighting. Each room (and villa) comes with a golf cart; there's also an efficient shuttle. Private villas are also available. Booking just a room at Casa is possible, but most guests go for one of the inclusive plans or golf packages. The Casa de Campo Spa is a pleasurable place to relax and revive, with a private water-treatment section.

    Great place for activity-filled vacation!

    Our teenage boys LOVED our trip to Casa de Campo. We played tennis, golf, rode, shot skeet... The only disappointment is the beach. It's very small, rocky and over crowded.

    We stayed in a villa which was nice and we had a wonderful couple who made our b'fast everyday and did our laundry. If we were to do it again we would rent a house.

    The good was OK. Nothing spectacular but good and the kids liked it (which is a major hurdle).
