The Caribbean is awaiting your arrival so that you can experience an unforgettable vacation on the south coast of the Dominican Republic at the all-inclusive Catalonia Gran Dominicus. The beaches and vegetation are stunning and the infinite horizons will leave you breathless. Located in one of the most beautiful areas in the country, specifically on Bayahibe's white sand beach, the scenery will amaze you. This all-inclusive resort is located just 25 minutes from La Romana Airport and 62 miles from Punta Cana International Airport. 

The Catalonia Gran Dominicus has been designed for you to enjoy your stay with various sports and leisure activities plus an array of delicious food and cocktails to keep you satiated. Beautiful tropical gardens, which you can view from all of the rooms, surround the Caribbean villas, which form the hotel. All of the rooms are spacious, welcoming, and feature soft decor in tropical tones. 

The attractive theme restaurants allow you to visit the Far East thanks to the tempting Teppanyaki cuisine. Try exquisite Italian a la carte dishes. Discover genuine Mexican dishes and enjoy the specialties of the steak house in American surroundings. Moreover, the complex includes five bars where you can enjoy all types of Caribbean cocktails. 

For the more active guests, a daily program of activities in several languages (in the pool and on the beach) is available. Some of the activities include aerobics, volleyball, water gymnastics, tennis, soccer, petanque, ping-pong, and archery. If you prefer to play in the water, try non-motorized aquatic sports (snorkeling not included) and test scuba diving in the pool. If you love to dance the night away and play after dark, experience the Discotheque and nighttime entertainment with shows every night in the theater. The Children's club (3 to 12 years) and Junior Club (13 to 17 years) are also available to keep the kids and teens entertained.

    AMAZING family trip!!! Much better than we even thought

    First off, I'd like to mention that the main reason we went to this resort is because of the beautiful beach. We were not disappointed at all!! The beach is even nicer in person. Second, the staff are downright amazing!! YUEFRI from the main buffet made our stay so special, especially on my wife's birthday when he surprised us with a birthday cake and a parade of people singing Happy birthday. Thank you YUEFRI!!! In addition, the staff at the beach bar, were so fun and friendly. Unfortunately, I misplaced my paper with all their names, but when we come back I'll be sure to add them to my next review. THANK YOU BEACH BAR STAFF!!! Housekeeping was on point considering we travelled with a one year old and much respect goes out to them and their hard work. We were staying in room 2136 and the housekeepers were awesome. I'd like to mention that the buffet food was better than any other all inclusive we've been to and we didn't even try the a la cartes because of it. I completely recommend this hotel for families and those looking for a nice beach!!!

    Family Reunion @loschapitasdelcaribe

    We were 17 people from Argentina Leaving in different places for a family reunion and we had a blast time!! We want to say a big thanks first to the best of the hotel the ENTERTAINMENT you guys are amazing hard workers both the Spanish and the Italian team well done!!! An other thanks to the pizza place and the merenguero bar the best! Then was really great the help in the restaurants beach bars towels and emergency room. Also big thanks to the kids club! The opportunity that the hotel has is: THE ROOMS after 3 days the bathroom was leaking they didn’t change the room for me. We were 3 people in my room and they only leave 3 waters in the fridge..Half of the pool was close that we didn’t know in advance and not enough restaurants open at the same day. We noticed that the hotel needs a concierge for big groups to better organize the dinners at the restaurants, however they help us! We believe that after they renovate the pool and switch and consider the “standards” rooms the “comfort” rooms will be a be a better experience, until then I recommend everyone upgrade the rooms. The problem with the hotel is you guys want to have 3 levels and that hotel should have only 2 levels getting the opportunities to everyone enjoy more places. 1 level self service with normal rooms and more choices like the terraza the other level better rooms, concierge and better service and experience. We all want to come back hope to see you soon! Big thanks!!!!

    Great cost-value relationship

    This is an amazing place for families, the beach is amazing, food is ok (some great restaurants as Rodeo and Yuca), service is awesome and if you have kids the kids buffet is a big plus. Overall it exceeded our expectations, and if you do the premium rooms I think it can get even better for what we saw.

    2019 stay at Catalonia

    Our third time in Catalonia an another excellent stay. Thanks to a great staff. Beach is one of the best on the island, theme restaurants are great and you'll always find different food in the buffet. If there's one thing that changed is they used to have a little more variety of food at the beach restaurant, but other than that a great trip. Cant wait to be back.
