The Catalonia Gran Dominicus is a 3 to 4 star all-inclusive property with a beautiful beach, well-maintained grounds, and friendly staff. The food is average and the rooms are good if you select Privileged option. I recommend Privileged. We chose the Privileged option, which was much cheaper when I booked in advance. Otherwise it’s $25 per person per day at... More

The first impressions of the hotel were very good. It is set in beautiful grounds and the beach was the best I have ever seen. The room was average and clean and the bathroom was adequate. The balcony door would not lock, which never got fixed despite asking at reception twice. The activities offered from the beach were limited so... More

The grounds are well kept, the initial staff was amazing as well. We neglected to bring our confirmation papers with us in... More

We were choosing hotel for a very long time on a south coast, reading lots of comments about different resorts. At the end we selected two from all possible ones, Catalonia and Be Live Canoa. Both has as good as bad comments and it was really difficult to choose between them. But we took a risk and chose Catalonia. Now,... More

My boyfriend and I moved to Catalonia from Viva Wyndham after getting ill from their food and having a burst appendix. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel so welcome and they looked after us well, knowing I had just come from hospital. Our first proper meal for over a week and it was lovely. The food...

My husband and I had an amazing holiday during our stay. Beautiful country, great service , family friendly resort. We can't wait to go back with the rest of our family. Yes, it's a very popular European vacation spot, however, we never had any problems communicating.
