Hotel Overview

2019 Resort Added Value
Family: Kids 6 and under Stay Free.

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.

    A perfect stay (Almost)!

    First of all I would like to thank every staff member at the resort, from checkin to check out they are doing their best to ensure a pleasant stay for every guest. I can’t thank you enough! The room: we booked the basic room but it was way more basic than what we expected, it looked like a cheap motel room with the old worn out furniture and the water leaking from the shower, I would give 1 star for that room, but we hardly stayed there and we enjoyed everything out of that room Hotel Grounds: beautiful and well maintained landscape, nice pool & a fantastic beach. I wish they had designated areas on the beach for smokers/non-smokers to make it convenient for everybody. Dinning: very good food options at the buffet, delicious snacks & smoothies all day, and nice ala carte restaurants (Italian, Caribbean and a steak house) I would definitely go back to the hotel but I’ll make sure that next time I’ll book a better room.

    Couple get away

    I wanted to have a weekend getaway with my wife and decided to change place so we went to La Romana this time and chose Catalonia in Bayahibe to stay. The hotel areas are well kept. The buffet was my favorite and Chef Ramon was our favourite staff. Very nice service and food was just amazing. The GM mr. Ruben met us and shared a coffee with us which was very nice from him.We will come back next year.

    Another vacation in paradise

    Just left from our Summer family vacations at Catalonia Gran Dominicus. What can I say? Each time I leave, I wish for next Summer to get back. There’s no place like this. Really unique! From the fantastic team that works at the hotel. From the hotel Director, all restaurants team, front office, guest service, animation team, room maids, everyone without exception, are tremendous professionals! Really great team! Together with these we have the beach that is paradise and a fantastic group of friends that meet all together in July for several years. Wouldn’t ever change our family Summer vacations for anything else in the world. Thank you for everything! Hope to see you all next year.

    Nice one.

    Nice rooms, amazing beach, nice pool, good drinks. Very clean, lot of staff members. Nice sports activities. Not so good: the waiting time at the restaurants and the variety of the food is not that good.
