    Nice Enough, But Too Many Inconveniences

    We stayed at Casa Marina Dec. 26-Jan. 2, ‘23. We stayed in a “standard” room (936) and, even with all of the inconveniences, we enjoyed our stay. Everything I mention here has already been noted by other reviewers, but I choose hotels based on recent reviews, and I want others to know what we experienced. This is an average hotel with average amenities (We weren’t on the “select” side). First, some of the inconveniences: You have to pay extra for internet and it only works in the lobby, you have to pay $18 if you want a lock for the safe box, no coffee maker and no coffee available outside of the buffet restaurant, no elevator, a la carte restaurant reservations can only be booked between 10-11am in person, no wash cloths or extra blankets unless you request them, water pressure is very low in the shower and the faucets water temp indicators are backwards (FYI - red is cold, blue is hot). We eventually figured this out on day 2! I slapped and killed about 5 tiny flies in our bathroom every morning and housekeeping took care of the rest when cleaning (I think they sprayed.) They obviously didn’t bite, but still…, the daily Amphatheater shows started at 9:30pm (too late for us), there’s no computer/printer for public use, the lunch buffet was not very appealing. Some of the positive aspects: Everyone at the front desk was helpful and all of the hosts, bellhops, groundskeepers, housekeeping, and bartenders were friendly and kind. Although a lot of the buffet “sides” are repetitive, they switched up the main course options and we always found enough variety to have enjoyable breakfasts and dinners, the cocktails at the bars were good and not watered down, we were usually up early and had hot water, we were able to adjust the air conditioning with the thermostat, when I requested an extra blanket and wash cloths, I got them, and when I requested two extra bottles of water, I got them. There are two nice pools and three jacuzzis that were never overcrowded and there was always enough lounge chairs and clean beach towels. The hotel beach is small but Sosua Beach is only a short walk away and really nice. The location of Casa Marina is nice with great views, restaurants close by (if interested), and it’s close enough to Puerto Plata that all of our excursions offered hotel pickup. We didn’t have any problems with noise or issues relating to locals on the weekend as other reviewers mentioned. There was a noticeable increase in numbers at the buffet, but there was plenty of food and everyone was polite. The New Year’s Eve dinner, show, fireworks, and celebration were nice, too! So, we DID enjoy our stay, but all those little inconveniences would lead us to look for a hotel with a few more included amenities if we vacationed in this area again.

    Select casa marina

    This resort used to be good pre pandemic, food gone down hill, all new staff at select desk, always issues from food/repetitive and most days no bacon at breakfast to water pressure to no hot water. Sometimes run out of premium brand alcohol, sometimes no banana's for the monkey drink. For the price you pay these things should be available.

    Bit of a disappointment

    This was our third visit to Casa Marina and the second stay on the select side. The room was still newer and clean. We did notice the hallway outside had the same floor stains when checking out as were there at check in. Our main disappointment was the crowded area in the select side. We ventured around the resort and noticed the non select pools were virtually empty. I know they sell access to the select side without actually having a room on the select. This in my opinion added to the overcrowding on the select side ruining the overall experience. We will probably return to casa Marina at sometime but I think the select side may not be worth the expense.

    Most beautiful sunrises and sunsets!

    A fantastic stay at this beautiful resort. Delicious food, great customer service, friendly staff and the most gorgeous sunrises and sunset! Special thanks to Franklin, Harold and Sandy and a few others that I unfortunately dont know the names of from the Select side team for making our stay the most comfortable possible. The only unfortunate part was that the select side beach was closed after the storm even on the gorgeous days, even though every other beach around was open and no one could explain why.
