When writing a review it’s always important to know a person’s experience and background. Personally, I travel 5-7 times a year to the Caribbean and Mexico (both coasts) usually to 4.5 and 5 star resorts. Higher end chains like Iberostar, RIU, Barceló, Gran Bahia, Melia and Sandals to name a few. This was my first to this area of the... More

It is a really nice resort. It was our first trip down south and we really enjoyed it. The beach is amazing! The food was really good. I would go back anytime to this resort and I would recommend it to anybody.

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 The entrance of the hotel is outdated, and is in dire need of repairs. The rooms as well are outdated, unless you rent a privilege suite, which is highly recommended.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

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.

We try to do our best every day, and it is nice when we see that our guests appreciate that. Best regards from Dominican Republic. More
