What a great vacation! That was our second stay in Catalonia Gran Dominicus and we enjoyed this hotel even more. We noticed a lot of improvements around the territory since 2014 which gave the guests feeling of hospitality and care. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful, well-kept Caribbean garden ending to an amazing beach with white sand and crystal water, all very nice and clean. The location is good; it takes about 50 minutes to drive from Punta Cana airport.We took "Privileged" option as before. The room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and well maintained. Sea access and beach were perfect. Service in the restaurant during the breakfast, lunch and dinner is very good, as well as the food. We managed to have dinners in all the restaurants within one week and try all menus. For me personally it was a challenge as the food was excellent with a very good variety, but I tried to keep a diet to be in a good shape :)The hotel personnel were very nice and always helpful. We speak English only, but didn’t feel any language barrier in case of any questions or needs. Animation is good and not annoying. We would like to say THANKS specifically to animation team. Roberto is the best ;) Sunamy, Samy and Jesse – we never got bored with them. They are professionals and we had a lot of fun dancing Salsa, Bachata in the evenings or during some daily activities. Night shows are also nice.There were only few things which could be considered for the future development by the hotel’s management team: 1) Hot water supply during the peak usage time (around 18:00). Not always but several times it was a bit warm, but not an issue due to the nice and warm weather.2) Wi-Fi accessibility and speed in some spots.3) A bit more attention of the bartenders when asking for non-alcohol cocktails. We were falling in love with Catalonia Gran Dominicus since our first visit and already planning our next vacation there. Writing this review in cold Saint-Petersburg and dreaming of the next time in Catalonia!Summarizing all the above, great place which I would recommend to stay. Anna and Liza
We just visitied this hotel two weeks ago. we had originally stayed here in October of 2011, and wanted a place not too far from our home in Santo Domingo, as this was a quick weekend getaway.When we visited the Hotel in 2011, we wwere very unhappy with the service, food and liquor. they were using some Russian inexpensive brand and there was a major difference and disappointment. The rooms were very basic with the bathrooms small and in need of updating. That has almost all changed!The grounds are absolutely beatutifl and well maintained. We stayed in a "Privelege" room which was much more luxurious than our first visit. The room itself was beautiful and the bathroom mcuh larger and udated. The shower was great, except the second night. They ahd a problem with a pipe bursting, and although they said it would be repaired in an hour, three hours later we took ice cold showers! The food is very basic like one generally finds in an all-inclusive resort unless they go to a five star or upgraded resort. Service was O.K. throughout the hotel. We did really enjoy the food in the Rodeo steak house. Best meal there. entertainment was not impressive at all. In fact disappointing, and the animation team really had no energy, not like the hotels we have been to. Back to the liquor, even ordering a top shelf brand like Stoli, or Absolute, I still have to question whether or not is the same Russian liquor they served our fist time there. It came out of the bottle, but the taste was not there. Would we go back? We shall see. There are many other resorts here on the island we would much prefer.
A very fun and enjoyable day organised by Richard gere with Eden village isole saona blue lagoon and finding starfish Fun from the beginning to the end staff all very good fresh coconut at the blue lagoon and an amazing pina colada on the arrival at isolated saona
Based on reviews and reputation, we came here for quiet. Unfortunately, they have changed their approach. At virtually all hours there is loud obnoxious music and loud obnoxious announcements. I am here right now. It is 10 pm. I am in my room and it feels like i am listening to a boxing announcer full of hype. They have been doing it since 10 am. Ole! Opa! GoGo! So fing loud. Not escapable. In the ocean, on the beach, by the pool, in your room, this place wants to hurt your ears. If this place was ever quiet, it is no more....which is fine, but not when you come for quiet. Lots of good stuff to say, but not when it is oversahdowed by this kind of noise....all...the...time...ole.
