Reviews for Marina Casa de Campo
Concierge Service , 2016-04-06
Captain: , Halifax (10)

The rating is based on one item only. The Concierge Office. The marina itself is nice though overpriced.
Today we walked up to the office to ask about laundry, they told us we had to speak to the concierge, because there laundromat does not operate here anymore, they now send it out to be done.We asked how much and were told we don't know, that you have to wait until they get it (we assumed done by weight as some other places). We asked about same day service as we were leaving the following morning and were told there would be a 5% fee for same day but back by 6pm.
At 5 pm the driver showed up and handed us a bill for $179US dollars! Needless to say we were outraged! When we went back to the concierge office they said we were told it was 50% extra for same day service and we knew how much before we sent it as we signed a price list. It seems the price list is on the back of the form they had us put our boat name and slip # on.
A call to the laundry to request a discount by the marina was fruitless. We have travelled extensively in the Caribbean and have never been charged more than $20 for a load of laundry.
Just be advised, if you come here, don't do laundry. It is also twice as expensive to clear in here as it was in Puerto Plata (Ocean World) last year.

We cleared in here from PR on a Sunday afternoon. My wife and 3 kids paid $250 which seemed like the going rate so we argreed. Isnpections were waved by all but the navy and that only took 3 minutes. After the nightmareish experiences we had later at Zar Par in Boca Chica I would highly recomend coming here to clear in (particularly if you headed west). The DR is still getting its legs as far as visiting yachts go but this should not disuade from comming here. It is really an awesome place that you will love. Its well worth the cleance fees.

Casha de Campo $$, 2016-02-16
Captain: , Melbourne (233)

Travelling east en route we stopped in DR for only one night. After reading the bad reviews of Boca Chica, we chose Casa de Campo.
This place isn't catered for transients and we were told it was 100% full (also told that 90% of the berths are owner occupied). As we wanted to rest up before continuing to Puerto Rico, we entered Casa de Campo to obtain a port clearance as we had come directly from Cuba and weren't certain whether PR would accept a Cuban port clearance. We also needed fuel.
Harbourmaster Oscar was very pleasant and said that although we had no reservation we could stay on anchor within the Marina for free! We were then picked up by dock hands and taken to an office where a group of officials (Immigration, Navy, Sanitation, Customs) were waiting to clear us in. We were treated very well and given a cup of coffee after the clearance process. Oscar drove us a short distance in his golf buggy to the ATM where we could withdraw local money to pay fees and get some shopping at the well stocked supermarket. The fees are high (particularly for one night), but the process was smooth, courteous, straightforward, and quick - after five nights at sea from Cuba, most welcome. The fees were clearly explained to us and presented on a 'Welcome to Marina Casa de Campo' flyer. Fees in USD were as follows:
Immigration: $12 per person; $70 per vessel
Navy/Armada: $20 for 90 day cruising permit
Custom: zero
Sanitation: $20 (international trash is collected and may be inspected)
Tourist Card: $10 per person (this fee must be paid in USD)
Port Authority: $20 for vessel over 36' ($15 for vessel under 35')
Drug Enforcement: zero
Port Authority: another $20 for vessel plus $20 for office services

The only extra we paid was to immigration on departure who asked for an additional $20 but we gave only $10 - she said it was because it was a Saturday!

Although the fees are high (we paid $226 all up), particularly for one night, we had a welcoming experience, could use their bathrooms, wifi (although slow), and filled up with fuel for $3/gallon. The water at the Marina is non potable.

Beautiful facility, but the corruption is rampant and institutionalized., 2015-11-20
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (3132)

Departing the country of DR from the south coast, this facility is your only choice....and the officials know it. After twice being told, "this is the only amount you will have to pay to clear out of the country", I was still subjected to demands for additional money by two different government representatives (Drug Enforcement, and the Guarda), which were accompanied by very clear threats of either tearing the entire boat apart (Drug), or jail (Guarda).

On our arrival in Puerto Rico, Customs officials (with much more experience than us) told us that the threats are not to be taken lightly. DR officials in this port are known for even planting drugs on vessels who refuse to pay. A sad ending to a visit to a beautiful country peopled by (mostly) very kind humans.

Es war sehr ernüchternd. Das Resort ist riesig und um raus oder rein zu kommen war es jedesmal ein Affentanz. Beim Einklarieren mussten wir 2 Stunden waren und auf das Ausklarieren warten wir nun schon 3 Stunden. Die Menschen sind unfreundlich und penetrant. Für uns das letzte Mal.

Best Marina so far, 2014-05-30
Captain: , Eau Gallie, FL (349)

We arrived during the low season, so fees were discounted 25%. Our three day stay, with electricity (spoiled ourselves with A/C) was just over $100 with taxes, etc. for 41 foot boat. Marina is very posh, Disneyesque medieval village (rent a cart), and lots of restaurants. Great experience, easy fuel dock, and lots of help getting you to your slip. The guarda/immigration people are the typical 'propina' folks, but though they asked neighbors for $100 to clear out, us $60, the office gave us info that it was $40, and we informed the immigration person that we would pay $40. Of course, we threw in $5 propina. Not a reflection on the marina, as this type of unprofessional behavior is typical of the DR, the only exception being Salina, where the Guarda were professional, polite.

We are still giving this place four stars despite the fact that we could not stay there as it was full.

We had been sailing with no internet access for sometime, we turned up at the Marina and contacted them on the radio. They explained they were full and we should have made a reservation. This is not possible without internet.

I said that we needed to check out of the country. Depsite being full they sent out a rib to help us in. They found us a temporary space where we sat for a couple of hours whilst we waited. They brought immigration, coast guard etc to the boat.

They were all very freindly and helpful, they did not charge us any money for the temporary dockage. They did not need to help at all given they were full.

We would have liked to stay although the place seems very expensive. My wife and I shared a small ice cream in the bar whislt we waited and it was $6.

We also brought some Gasoline for our outboard which was about $6 a gallon.

We would definatley look to stay there again, there are spas and nice restaurants so it would be a real treat for a birthday or Christmas, just next time we will make a reservation before we get there.

There are good anchorages a few miles either side of the Marina. Isla Catalina to the west (Use west side of island) and Bayahide to the East (very busy) we continued to Isla Soana which was beautiful.

Agree with all the other comments, Frank the Dockmaster is a gem, used to work in the US so flawless english and very very helpful. In addition my wife was ill whilst there and there is an exellent medical facility just outside the community which Frank took us to and stayed with us to interpret.
Do not miss this place out if you are cruising anywhere near or passing.

Excellent Marina, 2013-06-30
Captain: , Travemuende (830)

This is a super marina and well manged. It is also not too expensive.
The complex around the marina is fantastic. Never seen so many nice big houses

LOVED OUR STAY!, 2013-05-02
Captain: , Fairhaven, MA (10)

A stay at the Marina at Casa de Campos shows the true meaning of Dominican hospitality. From the dock manager, Frank, to the marina manager, Felix, and all the staff, we were treated like royalty. Need help with anything from a fax to a phone call, they happily assist you. A great choice of restaurants -- though beware! Prices might seem reasonable, but then they add 16% tax PLUS 10% service fee, and soon you end up paying $150 for sharing a salad and pizza with some wine! Surroundings are beautiful, and did I say golf? Some of the most fantastic in the world. We were sad to leave, but a weather window made it imperative.

Casa de Campo (Marina de Chavon), 2013-04-21
Captain: , Green Cove springs, Florida (321)

This is a terrific marina and surprisingly inexpensive. It is a very high end marina in an exclusive gated community catering to megayachts but excellent at welcoming modest boats on low budgets. The harbor is very protected and comfortable. We were nervous about the description that sounded like med mooring since our canoe stern is not at all set up for that. They had us tie side to a dock for megayachts and there were many other slips where we could have pulled in next to a reasonable length finger pier. Cost was less than $1/ft. Customs and immigration were right on premises. Checking out took a bit longer than we expected and was inexpensive although the guys who came out to the boat asked for a small tip. Don't miss Altos de Chavon. It's a community within the gated community with terrific views, some shops, an outdoor amphitheater that's worth seeing even if you don't get to a show. Most shops and restaurants are fairly expensive to very expensive and everything is touristy but it's fun. It's not expensive if you're careful. We rented a golf cart to use all over the complex for $20 for 24 hours and we parked it on our dock next to our boat across the dock from a 152' yacht.

Great Marina, all the services you can find or expect in a caribbean marina. Secure and beatifull place.

Surprisingly affordable, 2012-02-20
Captain: , Jacksonville, FL (363)

Though a stop in Casa del Campo was recommended to us, we considered bypassing it expecting the fees to be very high. Were we surprised when the total cost was just over a dollar per foot per night!

Nice docks (but most don't have finger piers), and spectacular facilities around the marina. I reminded us of a high end South Florida golf community transplanted to the DR. Not exactly what we were looking for, but a convenient place for clearing out of the DR if heading east.

We had an interesting day riding bikes up to Altos de Chavon, the "Medieval Village" within the community. Beautiful homes and golf course views on the way.

In addition to the jewelry/art/furniture shops and restaurants at the marina, there is also a decent grocery store.

The marina manager (?) Jesmine was a delight, easing the customs/immigration/guarda checkout process.
