What a wonderful trip!! My family and I enjoyed this resort very much. Service was wonderful and the food was excellent except for the buffet which was disappointing - Drinks were top shelf. Definitely go for the "privileged" guest status as it does pay off with drinks and food!!

If it wasn't for meeting the lifelong friends I met staying here and if it wasn't for DR just being a beautiful beach destination that is affordable. I would say that Catalonia Gran Dominicus is a shady place. It's 3.5 stars in terms of the facilities and beach. Overall, you're getting slim pickings when it comes to front desk professionalism...

Upon our arrival near midnight the staff greeted us at the La Romana International Airport. The trip to the resort stay took around 30 minutes by chartered bus. Once at the resort, we were briefly entertained at the reception desk before being escorted to our room. Perhaps arriving late we didn't notice the many beauties awaiting for us the next...

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 :)
