This place is amazing, we booked the privileged superior room. This Resort is 45 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport. Roads are great, all you see is Sugar Cane fields, cows, horses , goats & the huts that people live in. When we arrived they greeted us & took us to our lovely room which was decorated for our anniversary... More

My husband and friends stayed at the Catalonia Gran Dominicus 5/1-8/2015. We upgraded to Privileged. The Privileged rooms are closer to the pool, main bar, restaurants and beach. Our room was cleaned every day. The hotel sprayed for mosquitos. The hotel grounds are beautiful. There were hummingbirds and other different types of birds to watch. We found the food to... More

My wife and I just got back from 7 days here, it was amazing. I spent way too much time stressing over all the reviews people write about this place, but I'm very happy with our choice. As for the people complaining about the outdated rooms: You chose to come to a third-world country, why are you expecting high end... More

Catalonia Gran Dominicus Review. We spend 10 days at the Catalonia Gran Dominicus in Bayahibe, Dominican Republic. Checking in was pleasant and informative. We were guided quickly to a Privileged Honeymoon Suite. Located in building 1,on the top floor. Suite with huge terrace and a private pool. We appreciated the quietness of this area. Our suite 5230 had A/C that... More

The hotel comlpex is really nice. The pool and beach is very beautiful. The food is amazing for an all inclusive resort. There is even a smoothie bar on the beach, which was just perfect to drink while relaxing at the beach. The basic rooms were ok.

The hotel and beach were beautiful with a lot of space and not too busy. The rooms very good and clean. Unfortunately the staff were not the best. The hotel is very much aimed at the French / Italian / Spanish market, with a little toward the German market. I myself speak English and my fiancé speaks Dutch. This made... More

Considering the cost of the two week holiday, we felt let down with the condition of the family room we were allocated. It was a 'Garden View' room, and was very dark and uninviting. A VERY unpleasant and strong smell of damp hung in the air, the refrigerator was not working properly due to its age. The furniture was old,... More

First I will start off with saying that Catalonia is a very beautiful and clean property. The size is just right, not to large and not to small. It is about a 1 ½ to 2 hour drive from the airport. The beach is the most beautiful beach I have seen in my life. A few Tips….. Rooms: If you... More
