Just returned from a perfect week at Gran Dominicus. Before leaving on this vacation, we read many reviews about the resort and am simply amazed at how different people have different perceptions on the same facility. Folks complain about the food, about the time share peddlers and generally about anything they can ! Lol ... Even saw one reviewer complain... More

This was my first trip to an all-inclusive resort and was not disappointed. I went with a friend and we both came home very satisfied, raving about a few things in particular. The Staff: Overall, they were wonderful. Although few spoke English, they were always friendly and attentive. A few reviews have mentioned being pestered by staff to talk about... More

This resort has beautiful grounds and nice amenities. We had read previous reviews and were worried about the "exclusive concierge " pushing time shares, but we never had an issue. We never had anyone approach us on the beach to by anything either. Rooms are very basic, but clean and bed was comfortable enough. Almost all the staff were very... More

I was at the Catalonia the last week of February 2015. I really enjoyed this resort and look forward to going back next year. I have been traveling to the DR for over 12 years-once or twice a year and have stayed at various resorts. For the reasonable amount of money spent to say at the Catalonia, this was the... More

Beautiful beach, pool and grounds. Excellent kids club, it's an awesome feature; sign your kiddo's up and have fun, remember most of the little girls will only wear their swimsuit bottoms and there isn't a lot of English spoken except by the staff. The rooms are adequate. Pillows are tiny so ask for more and the beds are firm. The... More

This may seem a bit long, but these are things I would have like to have known before we went. From the Punta Cana Airport it is a 45 minute ride. Going thru customs there is not too time consuming. Check-in was fast. The staff at this resort are friendly. But more on them later...( I have some shout outs).... More

We had a wonderful week at Catalonia. Room: spacious and clean, worn down a bit due to the age of the resort but we never once saw a bug or anything of concern. The balconies and patios with lounge chairs were a great place to relax in the afternoon after a full day on the beach. Beach/Pool: Tons of chairs... More
