"I visited Casa de Campo last week and was with a group of 8 couples at Barranca 21 for 4 nights/5 days. We had a blast! The house is phenomenal, with an excellent layout for relaxing, hanging by the pool, having lunch or anything else if you are looking for a relaxing vacation. The pool is beautiful with a Jacuzzi and built in bar, where our house manager, Francisco, was bringing us drinks and snacks during the day. The staff that the owner has in place is excellent - they new how to take care of us and basically got us whatever we wanted; they were very nice and we befriended them while there. One day, Francisco, even took us into La Romana, with one of his friends in his own car, to do some shopping. The cook made some excellent meals (awesome breakfasts every morning, filets, fish, chicken, salads, fruit, etc.) and there was always something to eat or drink, always clean plates and glasses to the extent that we wanted to make ourselves something when the staff wasn't there. It was like staying in a hotel, but being in a private home - daily room cleaning and fresh towels, the staff cleaned up after us every day, food/drink whenever we wanted it, and the comfort of being is a private home with friends. We had 16 people so we rented 4 golf carts, which was great as there is a fair amount to do in Casa De Campo: we went down to the Marina a couple nights, dined at the resort's restaurant one night, some went horseback riding, some went skeet shooting, and there is much more to do. The only thing I would point out is that the two bedrooms downstairs are bit less extravagant than those on the first and second floors (in the pics, its the room with the blue bedding and the room with two double beds with white bedding - as opposed to being like suites similar to all the other rooms, they are more like typical hotel rooms, but fine nonetheless). These two rooms are downstairs on the sides of the family room, where the pool table is. One of the rooms (the one with white bedding) is a bit nicer than the other and opens up to the back yard with a patio and small seating area. Although these rooms are smaller than the 6 rooms upstairs, they are much more private and nice when you want some peace and quiet. All in all, the vacation was phenomenal and would highly recommend it. By the way, the coffee the staff makes every morning is one of the best I've had and they give you hot steamed milk - more like a latte than coffe!!"
