Enjoying the balcony and the view!

Bob purchased this condo in 2007

We've loved visiting Casa de Campo for years -- it is simply the most wonderful resort, with 3 world class golf courses, the largest marina in the Caribbean, a wonderful beach, many restaurants, and the beautiful Altos de Chavon village. When we learned that a brand new modern project would have sweeping views of the Dye Fore golf course and the modern amenities of a brand new construction, it was an easy decision to select Los Altos.

We most enjoy spending our mornings and evenings on the expansive patio which has sweeping views of the Dye Fore golf course. The house is wired for music throughout so we bring our iPOD and enjoy our favorite music while enjoying the tranquility of the golf course views. Even though it's a vacation spot, we enjoy using the gym which has all new equipment and cardio machines with cable TV. After all of that, we like to spend the day on the beach, or for special occassions to rent a boat and head to the secluded Palmilla beach or Saona island for a day out in the pristine Caribbean waters.

CARIBBEAN GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
Although we’ve visited Casa de Campo many times, this is the first time we have rented a private villa of Los Altos, part of the Casa de Campo Village.
The grounds are beautiful, tranquil and well kept. Los Altos is located a 5 minute walk to Altos de Chavon & complete with its own security-the village overall is quite safe.
The 3-bedroom penthouse was as advertised and more, clean, contemporary. The upper level is equipped with a large master bedroom & sitting area, terrace and en suite bathroom as well as a second bedroom with terrace & ensuite bathroom.
On the lower level, you have a large kitchen fully equipped, dining area with a side balcony and living room with walk out to main terrace as well as the third bedroom with balcony. Separate bathroom on this level.
The main terrace overlooks the 17th hole of the Dye Fore Golf course; excellent for outdoor dining with wonderful tropical breezes day & night. We enjoyed early morning coffee & watching the sun come up & sunset cocktails!
The penthouse offers domestic help 7 days a week and Dominga is a true professional. She also provided some grocery shopping for us at the Local Jumbo.
Wi-fi internet worked perfectly.
Each building complex has its own large pool & Jacuzzis with a shaded terrace BBQ dining area. The Weber BBQ set-up is cleaned daily.
The complex also has a gym. Bike rentals are also available, but my wife enjoyed late afternoon walks in the village.
There is enough variety of Restaurants within the Casa de Campo complex, should you not want to dine in. Choices include restaurants in Altos de Chavon, La Marina, Minita Beach, Lago Grill, La Cana &Teeth of Dog ninth hole. Recommended to phone ahead first as times restaurants are closed due to private functions.
The Marina area has its own supermarket, perfect for stocking up during the week (on 2nd floor the market has a great wine selection). The local Jumbo store in La Romana (10 minutes drive).
As the complex is within 7,000 acres, getting around requires a car or a cart.
English is spoken in the Hotel area and Condo Owners Club, elsewhere we had fun practising my Spanish & everyone is so helpful.
The activities: best golf in the Caribbean, bring extra golf balls!!, fabulous bill fishing, tennis, watersports, horseback riding, skeet shooting, Polo & Resort Spa.
On weekends we enjoyed spending our days at the Minita beach (15 min drive).
Would look forward to returning & planning on it next year same time.

VACATIONERS

  • 5 out of 5
I am very pleased that we rented this apartment. I had seen the pictures on VRBO but could not imagine that it was actually way more beautiful than the pictures. The place is well appointed, spotless and very comfortable. The maid that comes with the apartment (Dominga) was extremely helpful, accommodating, discrete and above all, an excellent cook. I would urge anyone going to La Romana to seriously consider this property. The resort (Casa de Campo) is beautiful and is impeccably maintained.

PARADISE IN LOS ALTOS

  • 5 out of 5
I'm somewhat hesitant to write this review as my instinct is to keep this hidden gem for myself. The property is extraordinary in every sense. The condo itself is well appointed and demonstrates thoughtful attention to every detail. This characterization encompasses EVERYTHING about the condo-- the kitchen, the bedrooms ( especially the master bedroom), the living room with bose equipment to stream music throughout the house, the multiple terraces, the clean,spacious and bathrooms-- todo.

Bobby was a most attentive property manager and attended to all of my needs prior, during and post holiday. Dominga, the housekeeper and AMAZING cook, made the trip extra special.We escorted her to the market, requested our favorite meals, and she prepared five star gastronomical wonders. I say this as a New Yorker who has lived around the world and enjoys amazing food. From her chicharrón de pollo to her arroz con gandules, her food is second to none. ( And she knows it!)

Casa de Campo itself is a world-class resort, although we personally didn't use the resort much as we came to rest. We did, however, frequent the beach ( where we took our own cooler of cosmos, gimlets and other drinks as the beach prices for cocktail rival even Manhattan's most costly bars).

One piece of advice: RENT A CAR. You wlll not be able to do anything without a vehicle. Car rental is quite affordable and Bobby makes the process seamless. While there is a lovely pool outside the apartment ( which we also used as a heated jacuzzi at night), you will need a car to drive to the beach. There are a few restaurants on the Casa de Campo property, but Dominga's cooking was far superior. This is not a slight to the restaurants, but rather an indication of her cooking.

Main questions that you'd want to know-- The video and photos don't nearly do the place justice, but it's impossible to capture scale and details unless you're on the premises. The apartment is spotless and well-maintained. I travel around the world a fair amount for work and pleasure. I recommend this place rental without qualification.

PS Do remember that you are coming to the Dominican Republic, a Spanish-speaking country in the Caribbean. Casa de Campo is one of the most coveted and prestigious vacation areas in the Spanish speaking world. If you are looking for English-speaking Disneyland, then this is not the place for you. I would recommend an American-owned resort. Or perhaps America. :)

NICE PENTHOUSE

  • 4 out of 5
First let me say that this place is everything that was described in the sales ad. It is comfortable, spacious and clean. The furnishings are modern and well appointed. The entire setting of Los Altos is very pretty and secluded. My dealings with Bob the owner went smooth on all accounts. He was very responsive to all of my questions. The location of Los Altos to Altos de Chavon is less than a 5 minute walk.Dye Fore golf course and clubhouse is right next door, less than 2 minutes. With that said, the rest of Casa De Campo is a minimum 25 minute ride in a golf cart. It is a long way, each way. We rented an electric golf cart and had to exchange it for a gas powered cart as ours died multiple times. In trying to charge it overnight at the condo there is no electric power anywhere outside to charge a cart so gas is the only option. The maid was a nice lady, she made beds and did general cleaning everyday. For our family, having a maid everyday in the condo all day was a little awkward. She is there when you get up and stays until 430pm. Conversation was hard as we spoke no spanish, so we had to point a lot as to what we needed. I do not recommend using the safes in the bedrooms as we had a problem with one that the batteries died and it would not open. We were able to get in touch with Bob and he was gracious enough to give us the combination to his private safe to get the override key to get in. A few anxious moments for us as all of our money and passports were in this safe.One thing that would have been nice to know was that 90% of the TV channels are in spanish only. With 2 17 year old boys this was a disappointment to them and to my wife and i. Overall our stay was good, and as i stated earlier the place is nice just a little too remote from the rest of the resort for us. One final observation, there is a lot of security at Casa De Campo, all posted at various points inside the resort and complex and all of them with weapons. Many times we tried to ask for directions to places we were trying to go, however none of them spoke english. We felt a little uncomfortable at times.

Owner's Response: I concur that a rental car is a must and I always recommend that... the resort is an 8,000 acre private gate guarded resort with the largest marina in the Caribbean, a beach, 3 golf courses, hotel and spa, and a hilltop Mediterranean village, so small rental car facilitates movement around the resort. There are several rental car companies located within the resort which can deliver right to the villa.

Not sure where the comment about the TV comes from -- we have full digital cable and receive all the US channels in English.

Finally, the Dominican Republic is a Spanish speaking country so not everyone speaks English -- I advise folks that you can always use Google translate in a pinch -- http://translate.google.com

BETTER THAN THE PICTURES!

  • 5 out of 5
Our recent stay with our two children was everything we had hoped it would be. The penthouse exceeded our expectations and was fully loaded with all of the needed amenities. The homeowner's informative letter that was sent just prior to our arrival was so helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable. The housekeeper was also a nice touch. We would definitely stay here again.

SPACIOUS AND MODERN - SMALL SLICE OF PARADISE AT CASA DE CAMPO

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from a 6-night stay at this modern, well-kept apartment. Very spacious, clean and all amenities found as described. I thought the place looked better in person than the photos are able to show, especially in terms of spaciousness. Owner is probably most responsive I have encountered throughout booking, pre-departure information and during stay. He provided helpful information and assistance with transfer and hotel from/in Santo Domingo, restaurant recommendations, tee times, etc. The apartment is located at a corner of this very large resort, and agree with another reviewer that highly desirable, if not necessary, to have golf cart and/or car. We kept both and were glad we did. Pool is lovely and usually deserted. The village of Altos de Chavon is very close so good access to that area and Dye Fore course. The apartment is further removed from other 'hotspots' in Casa de Campo such as marina, beach, main hotel, Teeth of Dog course, but a 5-10 minute drive by golf cart is part of the fun. Cannot beat the value of this direct from owner apartment compared to resort rentals. As a whole, Casa de Campo is an expensive place so it was nice to get a break on the accommodations. Also, some might prefer to be more centrally located in the resort (nearer beach or hotel) depending on what activities desired. This apartment is best located for Altos de Chavon village and Dye Fore course, both of which were great.
