fantastic place to stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 29, 2007

My stay at the Casa Marina Reef for 1 week was truely wonderful, I came to see my friends get married there. They had ame out the week before we flew out. We came out for the second week.
The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful, they are always singing and dancing and it creates a lovely atmosphere.
The rooms were really nice, especially the air con, but were a little dim, the maid was in every day cleaning them, they worked really hard.
The grounds of the hotel were kept spotless at all times, there was always staff cleaning and trimming and picking up things of the ground, It was immaculate.
The entertainment was fantastic too, much better than some London west end shows, it catered for all ages too which was good as I am going back next year with my daughter.
The food was also lovely a massive range of food to choose from, my friend nicola is the most fussiest eater I know and even she liked the food. I loved it so much as I said before I have booked up again for next year.

Unique Quality: The pool was crystal blue all of the time and was cleaned every day. The sea views were lovely from the reef, there is some jaccuzi pools at the top of the reefs so you can just sit in them, relax and take in the views.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Casa Marina Beach is a huge hotel complex, joined to the sister hotel Casa Marina Reef.
There are a few bars located all around the beach area and there are 3 a la carte restaurants plus the buffet area where you have all your food and it is a self serve restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner.

There is a Mexican, Italian and a Seafood restaurant, this also serves chicken and some very tasty steaks. We didnt really enjoy the Mexican, only went once during our stay. We went to the Italian three times, i had lasagne, then raviolli then i had pizza and i enjoyed them all.We went to the seafood restaurant twice, both times we had the beef steak, it was huge and came with vegetables and a bbq sauce. The chocolate cake at both restaurants was delicious.

There were plenty of sun loungers and spaces around the pool and sea, i enjoyed the jacuzzi's which were located on the beachfront however the water was quite cold so didnt stay in them very long.

The hotel room was very spacious and clean we had two huge king size beds in the room, fresh towels everyday if you wanted them. On arrival we had two bottles of water in the room. Could of done with a fridge though because drinks got warm.

The only downfall of the hotel was the buffet food, if there wasnt the a la carte restaurants the we would of been so bored of the same food everyday. It was very repetitive.

Also the entertainment was ok but more aimed towards families.

The hotel could do with an indoor bar or lounge, because the first few days we were there it rained and there was no where to go apart from your hotel room.
I would of liked to have sat in a bar and enjoy a drink but you couldnt because they are all located on the beach.

Overall we had a nice time here but if your looking for a lively holiday then this aint the place for you. I recommend it more for families with younger children.

Unique Quality: The hotel has got a nice spacious sun terraces allover the complex, they are lots of sunloungers with complimentary towels which can be changed daily. There is a huge swimming pool at the Casa Marina Beach and also one at the Reef aswell if you fancy a change of scenery. There are also three whirlpool baths located along the beach which are nice and relaxing after a hard days sunbathing.

MASS TOURISM ALMOST GONE MAD.....

by written on April 12, 2007

Imagine a hotel on the beach with lots of property.... endless corridors and countless stimulating animators who keep the tenants of 370 + rooms occupied and happy....swimming pools where dozens do their morning watersport aerobics, an all inclusive offer, which means everything ( food and beverages) is actually really included in a lump flat price which is of course the linchpin or peg that attracts the crowds who then have breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets at the same place for two weeks or whatever..... Evening poolside "folklore" shows with eardrum numbing music beats and undisciplined crowds at the way too small reception... young wax colored and overweight european country hillybilly couples on their first long haul adventure vacation.....

I know I sound cynical and I really don't want to say anything bad or wrong about this place BUT when I think about it I get the goosepimples......

Unique Quality: hmmmm..... if the kitchen crew manages to produce enlightening, healthy and diversified food for everybody, everyday and if that food looks appetizing after the 50 people ahead of you in the queue have satisfied their urge to poke in and play with it and if you still find it delicious after eating every meal at the same place and if you don't get tired of having to serve yourself all the time....

well, then this would be a real unique quality to both the hotel and the guests...... lol.....

I stayed here over New Year 05/06 (they put on a good NYE). Its a decent place, pretty clean and well maintained. I normally happily eat anything on offer but I started to get a bit sick of the food by the end of the week.

The all inclusive beer is fine but the spirits are 20% home made style. Give a big smile when ordering and ask for a large measure to give it any sort of kick.

If you plan to stay within the hotel and only venture out on planned trips then this I would recommend this place based on value for money.

The town of Sosua is OK but is full of single blokes looking for local girlfriends. Cabarete seemed much better and more relaxed. The bars and restaurants along the beach were great.
