We stayed at Hotel La Catalina in February 2015 with another couple and 2 6-year-olds. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. We rented two condos that were very close to each other. The kids really enjoyed being able to move between the two condos on their own. The food was great, the staff was very friendly and the grounds were... More

Location: This hotel is located in Cabrera, which is a little under 2 hours from Puerto Plata Airport (POP). We took a shuttle that was prearranged for $110 USD. The driver was very friendly and we had a cooler full of beverages for the long ride. Hotel La Catalina is located in a secluded, rural village with limited stores /... More

Staff was extremely friendly. However, service was a bit slow but I think that is just island time because that was everywhere I went. Every one was always smiling and happy to help with whatever we needed. We were a large group for a wedding and the hotel had plenty of rooms available for such a large party. Beautiful place...

Word on the street is that they are under new management. All of those long time familiar faces of the staff- all gone! No more Coco behind the... More

Great hotel, food and view! So peaceful and beautiful. The staff was even so helpful in driving my fiancé to the clinic to get some medication for his bug bites from a recent beach trip. We had a great sleep delicious dinner and breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away from crowded, crazy beach resorts.

Our family enjoyed the most peaceful and restful holiday ever at La Catalina Resort in Cabrera, Dominican Republic. The weather was perfect, the grounds were beautiful. We had a leisurely breakfast daily in the restaurant, enjoying the tropic air. Then we swam in the pool or went to the beach. We visited the waterfall to watch locals high dive off... More

We traveled with three little children and stayed in an apartment. It was an amazing view. We could not get enough of it since we knew we will return to cold climate. The pool was right next to us. Which our kids enjoyed a lot. We enjoyed the delicious food in the restaurant. We visited all the beautiful beaches around... More

This lovely property is located on the north (Atlantic) coast of the Dominican Republic in the outskirts of the town of Cabrera, 45 minutes away from Cabarete Beach (Puerto Plata), the wind surfing capital of the world. It's small yet quaint & cozy, remote but beautiful surrounded with lush gardens. It's not ocean front, but has a breathtaking ocean view.... More
