... for the most part we had a nice chat. Plus their accents are very different! I spent the whole day on the beach, swimming and snoozing in the shade. I had a late lunch of seafood and pasta. And for dinner went to a local place and had empanadas and yucca chips. Then went back to the hotel to chill out and pack ready for going to Santo Domingo tomorrow ...
The former volunteer's two photographer friends went back to Santo Domingo today, and 5 other friends of hers replaced them! We had lunch together with Ricky, Yudelka and Eduardo, which was a bit chaotic cooking for 10! Afterwards I went with Ama and her friends to see the gagá in Guaymate. There were different groups from different bateys playing and the crowds were huge! Never seen Guaymate so busy before, not even during the ...
... to one song which they played on repeat for about an hour or so! This was accompanied by crashing of pots and pans, and shouting back and forth between the kids and parents. VERY effective alarm....unfortunately. Today I managed to record an interview with Yudelka for my Spanish essay on teenage pregnancy in the town. It is a very interesting issue, as the school here does not provide sex ...
Went to La Romana yesterday to get some food shopping. On the journey back on the guagua, I ended up getting preached at by some guy who wanted me to go to church. He sat down next to me on the bus and 15 minutes into the journey he asks me "are you Christian?" not "do you speak spanish" or "where are you from" but "are you christian?" I answer, no. He replies "but you should believe in God, Jesus loves you". I just say ok, and look outside at the window, not ...
... of looking at him under the microscope it was clear he would need a surgical intervention to repair his severely damaged eye. Another case added to the day... 45 minutes later after walking out of the fifth case I was grabbed again to see another emergency--a 49 yo man who had been assaulted. After donning gloves I gently removed his patch and his diagnosis was immediately apparent--retrobulbar hemorrhage (a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa de Campo La Romana
At the time of booking my 9th visit to Casa de Campo I realized I must have some love for the place.
Three couples visited the DR in December 2002. We opted for the all inclusive golf package, so we ate too much, drank too much and played golf every single day. It was awesome! We agree with most everyone that Teeth of the Dog is one of the best golf courses we have ever played, but don't forget Links, which is an excellent course as well. The new unamed Pete Dye course up by Altos de Chavon promises to be a great addition to the entire complex.
Loved the golf, the food, the pool . . .
Four of us went to Casa de Campo last Spring and had the time of our lives! The golfers (the guys) said the Teeth of the Dog was the best course they've ever played--and they've played Princeville and Poipu Point. All the food was good, but the Italian restaurant at the Altos de Chavron was FABULOUS!! We shopped at the marine, snorkeled at the beach and on a snorkeling trip, sat by the pool with unlimited pina coladas, and had an altogether wonderful time. I can't recommend this resort highly enough.
I vacationed at Casa de Campo over the summer of 2002- the food was great-our villa was beautiful- we loved it so much that my fiance and I are booked to get married there in November!
Heaven on earth
This is by far the best vacation spot in the world! I have been going for years and it keeps getting better. There is not better place in the world to relax. I don't know if its the people, food, ambiance or massages but I never want to leave.
There is something for everyone to do but it is a great place to do absoloutely nothing as well.
Just got back Sunday from a wonderful, fabulous trip to the DR. We arrived last Saturday at the Santo Domingo airport and picked up our Rental Van. I was traveling w/
We just returned from a 9 day stay at Casa de Campo. This is the 9th time I have vacationed there. Every visit has been spectacular. The staff is the friendliest I have experienced everywhere from Central America, Europe, The Carribean, The Middle East, and North America.
We bought a golf all-inclusive at this resort in April. We played Teeth of the Dog and Links courses for 7 days. We got a luxury suite which was huge. Beautiful mahogany furniture, 4-poster bed, pillowtop mattress. My husband and I each had our own bathrooms, dressing area, and walk-in closet. The food was great at all the restaurants we chose. I had lobster 4 nights. All food and alcohol is furnished. The Teeth of the Dog was a fabulous/challenging course with several holes along the ocean. The resort was immaculate with beautiful landscaping that was tended to night and day. You must get the all-inclusive or it will be quite pricey. You must rent a "touring cart" to get around the resort. It is very spread out. Staff was friendly but most only spoke limited english. My husband and I want to buy a villa there - it was the most perfect vacation we've been on. To sum up Casa de Campo - Garden of Eden with Golf Course from Hell.
Do not consider going to Casa De Campo. The horses were underfed, saddles and bridles had dangerously worn leather. We were lied to and overcharged during the entire week. Our casita had no water for two days. Groceries ordered arrived a day before we were supposed to leave. Many items were missing but we were charged for everything. We were told our plan included lunch and drinks but we were charged for them separately. Even the beautiful picture on the brochure of the people riding on the beach is a lie. They don't allow you to ride on the beach. You get to ride through a construction site. The boat trips and excursions were always cancelled when we tried to sign up for them. The skeet shooting center was closed. You can golf, but that costs over $100 per person. Basically, Casa de Campo does not want to give you a vacation. They just want your money.
Fabulous for Famililes!!!
Casa de Campo is GREAT for families of all sizes as there is something for all ages! The kids programs are great... which enable my husband and I to have time together too.
We were there as a family attending a wedding which actually turned out to be VERY nice. We took advantage of attending this wedding and combined it with a family vacation which turned out to be a great idea. The picturesque church right on the property weas simply beautiful.
We highly recommend Casa de Campo .... and will be back in the near future.
