Christmas in la Romana!!

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!!

Be weary of front desk staff - trying to cheat you

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 and service. We had a terrible shady experience when we stayed there, where we had lobster on the beach with some friends. It was obvious that we booked with several other couples from different rooms at the hotel - and upon checking out, the front desk staff tried to charge us for all 8 lobster meals at $30.00 USD each. It's the same bloody lobster they serve you at the buffet you get as part of your all inclusive vacation. When we informed the front desk staff - that there was an obvious mistake and clearly the staff had made an error, because why would we play for all 8 lobsters, given the fact that separate people made reservations - and should have been billed per guest per room, which is not very difficult to compute and organize - the front desk staff were so suspicious, treated us like we were local criminals, and tried to intimate us by having a security guard stand there, while we were trying to board to depart, all of this on our last day - after two bloody weeks. The worst of it was, the front desk staff, instead of acknowledging that there was a possible mistake (we even gave them the names of the other rooms and guests that said with us) they were dumbfounded and again, gave us the third degree. I believe that they have done this before trying to pull a fast one on unsuspecting staff. It gave us a serious bad taste in our mouth and gave all the reasons why we don't travel to DR anymore. It's one thing to work out a problem on billing and helping to get the right bills to the right people, but it felt like I was dealing with the underworld at this hotel. The General Manager, who eventually after several hours, came out to tell us that we weren't on the hook for all 8 lobsters charged us for two lobsters, and was acting like she did us a favour. For those of you who are considering staying here - I would advise against it. Chose another more modern and reputable resort - where you don't have reviews like this one.

Amazing vacation!

Absolutely amazing vacation! We spent in Catalonia our second vacation and always in November. The location in general is very nice and the beach is the best at Bayahibe coast. No sea grass and always clean.The garden is beautiful but the rooms need to be up grated but ok when you stay all day on the beach or outside the resort. Food was delicious and enough.The hotel staff was very nice and always helpful. If we asked for some requests they fulfilled our needs immediately and always put their typical smiles on their face :-) I would like to specially thank to animation team. They are too professional and the night show time was great as we´ve ever seen. We had lots of fun with them because they´re wonderful to us. Specially Dulce Maria! thanks for spanish classes and lots of fun, also thanks amazing dancers: Yefry, Mosquito, Jenny and Dary.I can fully recommend this resort and hope you will enjoy it!
