It was not our first trip to La Romana, but this hotel was the best. We enjoyed beech and pool. The food was amazing, The pasta station served by chef Andrew Eden was my preference. We had seafood with lobsters every other day. I would like to say special thanks to Kristina ( the girl from Serbia) for great help... More

The hotel staff is amazing. The entrance of the hotel is outdated, and is in dire need of repairs. The rooms as well are outdated, unless you rent a privilege suite, which is highly recommended. We found the food to be great. One of the best we have eaten in any resort. The animation is great, we found (Ambiorix or... More

The last trip I took with my father to the Dominican Republic, we stayed at the Catalonia Gran Dominicus. He was dying, cancer, and was skin and bones. The employees at the Catalonia Gran Dominicus treated him like a king. He loved this hotel. He was happy laying on a lounger near the pool, drinking Presidente Beer. I will always... More

This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic, and we had a great time. Though the room was nothing to write home about (which is pretty normal), the rest of the resort was impressive. We have been to Cuba many times, but I must say that this resort had the best beach I have seen so far. It was... More

Vacationer's worst nightmare - on the morning of our trip, the airline cancelled our flight due to bad weather and we were unable to find any other flight to the area. We had booked our stay at the Catalonia Grand Dominicus through Expedia, and they contacted the hotel on our behalf to see if they would waive what was, according... More

Old fashioned & bad food, however the rates is fare enough... If you have option, pick another place. Pros.: beach, localization, maid service, concierge. Cons.: food, old fashion apartments. General: i would not return, but the rate is faire enough.

I will start by saying the food was excellent. Tons of variety and everything prepared fresh, was way beyond my expectations. The rooms where clean, and well maintained. The air conditioner worked great. The staff was also great, and was highlighted by Kristina from the concierge. She recommended some really fun stuff and made the trip that much better. So... More

My fiancée and a couple of our friends headed to the Hotel Catalonia for a short 4-night stay as a way to get away and see the amazing beaches of Bayahibe, DR. We were not disappointed. The hotel's beach was absolutely stunning and well-worth the entire trip. Although, it rained a couple days, our spirits were not dampened as we... More
