My 15 year old son and myself visited Catalonia Gran Dominicus from June 23-30, 2015 via Sunwing. La Romana airport was not available, so we had to go to Punta Cana International Airport, then travel about 1 hour to the hotel. Upon driving through the gates, I was not impressed. The lobby was very basic and simple. I've been to... More

The Taína buffet and restaurants have delicious food and service, my husband's and my... More

The hotel is smaller and mostly European (we know this going and that is why we chose this hotel). They have an Italian, French and Dominican entertainment staff and they work their butts off, awesome job all day and night long. The hotel staff is amazing and so so friendly. If you do not speak spanish you have to say... More

Overall it was a great stay. The hotel is about a 45 - 60 minute taxi ride from the Punta Cana Airport, we set up our ride ahead of time so we didn't have to get a taxi when we arrived (there are a BUNCH of taxis waiting at the airport though) when we arrived at the hotel, a bus... More

The hotel grounds were beautiful and I had great company on this trip. However, the staff majority of the staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate. Many were pushy and most only showed interest in guests that spoke fluent spanish. The steakhouse and italian a la cartes had good service, but the caribbean did not. We were scammed by Mauricio (works... More

Set on a beautiful stretch of Bayahibe beach in La Romana, this is a lovely resort with wonderful service , beautiful grounds, pool and very nice rooms. I would suggest an upgrade to "priveleged" rooms which gives you a room with more modern furniture, a lovely marble bathroom and access to The Terrace, a beachfront restaurant with fine lunches and...

This was our first 'all inclusive' stay and we weren't so impressed. We had upgraded to the 'privileged' room. The positives: the grounds were beautiful and immaculately maintained. The beach was outstanding, the water was warm and clear; very picturesque. The staff was plentiful. The beds were comfortable. Pool was nice also. We got a 50 minute massage for $40,... More
