Vacationed her in June 2014. It's not the most luxurious resort, but it's definitely not the worst. my review is based on the privileged room, so I can't comment on the regular. I was happy to pay for the upgrade as I wanted the upgraded room, freedom to eat at the a la carte restaurants and so on. The room... More

I travel every year and this is my 3rd trip to Dominican Republic. I would not recommend this hotel for several reasons. AIR CONDITIONING; - if you think you will cool off when you spend the whole day in the sun, think again. The A/C in the rooms is horrible, does not get cool. I had to change my room... More

I recently stayed at the Catalonia Gran Dominicus for a week on an All Inclusive basis with my partner and our two children (8 & 4). We had an absolutely amazing time and really did feel we were in paradise. I was slightly worried about the transfer time as many people had said 90 minutes but we were at the... More

Had a nice week here from the 12th - 19th June. The best things have to be the beach and the price. For a cheap week in a paradise location then its great but there is little to do in terms of entertainment. Evening entertainment was lacking but they try. If you can't speak spanish then communication can be difficult,... More

The beaches were amazing, lots of room, very clean, quiet (despite occasional, momentary staff dance parties). Go early if you want a grass hut/shaded area. People left their belongings there overnight to keep for the next morning which was a turn off. The grounds and landscaping was immaculate. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. We somehow got upgraded to... More

The beach is one of the best in the DR, better than Punta Cana, the grounds were awesome, well maintained and the trees labeled. The rooms need updating and it looks like they are starting to do that so maybe that would be better if you got an updated room. The food was plentiful but below average, that said the... More
