If there’s something Casa de Campo is well known for, in addition to all its amenities, entertainment options and world class beauty, is for being the favorite spot for celebrities to retreat and take a break from all the hustle and bustle that comes with being a star.
Last 2015 was a great year and we received many visits from all kinds of famous people. But there’s a couple that is most notable for keep coming back to Casa de Campo every now and then, time and time again, and that’s rapper Jay-Z and wife R&B singer Beyoncé. Last time they were spotted here was back in April 2014, but something celebrities know how to do — and most of the time get away with — is going unnoticed by people, so they may’ve returned some other time and we didn’t noticed. Just maybe…
But oh well… Speaking of going unnoticed, that’s just what they did this time, as they were seen at Minitas Beach for the amazing Praia New Year Party (photos and coverage coming soon) to which they attended to watch the spectacular firework show and meeting non other than Marc Anthony, who after the amazing Juan Luis Guerra concert, in which he appeared as a guest artist to sing along Juan Luis, got ready and went on to say goodbye to 2015 at Minitas Beach. Unfortunately, we don’t have photos of the trio because they had a huge security ring around them and no touching or getting any closer than that was allowed. But you can still read the story in a note publish by TMZ clicking here.
From athletes, to actors, and lastly, singers! We’ve received a bunch of celebrities in Casa de Campo this past 2015, so here’s a list of those we had the pleasure of welcoming to our caribbean paradise:
Even though it was not yet 2015, last December 31st of 2014, Prison Break star, Amaury Nolasco was at Palmillaso hanging out on the boat next to ours. We also saw Vin Diesel, Dominican baseball stars, José Bautista and Hanley Ramírez — who we’ve seen having a blast at Genesis Nightclub till late hours —, NBA basketball star, Shaquille O’Neal, as well as Dominican film maker, Jessy Terrero and. — And this last Thursday, December 31st, we saw Amaury Nolasco at Palmilla again.

So, as you were able to observe, like every year, this 2015 Casa de Campo received lots of celebrities, and we’re sure this 2016 will not be the exception as celebrities have since the beginning preferred Casa de Campo to getaway from all the stress and enjoy this paradise we have the pleasure to call home at least for a couple of days.
