HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

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,...

The check in was wonderful, the room was brand new, could not be better. the beach and calm clear ocean were fantastic. This was the main reason we booked. We have stayed at several Catalonia resorts in the past, so we were expecting this to be a resort full of europeans. So the constant frowns (don't understand why folks on...

We have truly enjoyed Catalonia Hotel and kids-oriented activities and facilities (playground, mini-disco with Mr.Turtle, mini-buffet and separate dining area, a play room with arts and crafts, wonderful kids pool, calm waters and golden sand). Our kid was busy and happy all day long. We look forward to coming back!

Beautiful resort with a beautiful beach... but... unless you upgrade to privileged your stay definitely won't be as comfortable or relaxing. With privileged you receive the new rooms close to the pool and beach which are clean and spacious and have working ac units and up to date washrooms. Plus access to beach huts and use of the terrace on...

The moment you get a closer look it all starts to fall apart though ( sometimes quite literally). Wifi is useless to non existent, a must in this day and age. The room was old, with the sink only being held on...
