Good beach, friendly personal, except the water sports guys. Building with many problems with water suply, hot water (non existing...), leaks in the room entrance. Good food. Overall, I rate it very good because of personal, the beach, the food and the location.

I have stayed at Catalonia Gran Dominicus for a week in August. It was a family trip, me and my father. Great courtesy, wonderful ocean and entertaining events (the dominican dancers were exceptional!). I would definitely suggest it :)

It's a small all-inclusive hotel, every area is close to each other, you can go on foot, which defers from other big resorts where you need a golf car to reach the different areas. This is a big positive point for us, we have a 2-year-old girl and that's helpful. In general the hotel is clean, well organized, good services,...

We enjoyed the beach and scuba. Very nice. Great snorkeling right in the swimming area of the beach. Best we have seen in the Caribbean. Rooms were a bit outdated but nothing to complain too much about. Plenty of food to eat and entertainment to enjoy. Would recommend and stay here again. Friendly staff.

This was our first time in Dominican Republic and to be honest, first time outside Europe. First important thing is that 4* in EU is not same as 4* outside EU. EU standard is much much higher.
