    30th Birthday Saty

    I had a wonderful stay, the concierge, Fanyelis and housekeeper Olga did an excellent job of helping my sisters surprise me! I truly appreciated it! Alexis was also great in helping us cross the busy street and even giving walking directions to local places. The pool area was wonderful not huge but great for the space and a lot of seating available.

    A time of rest

    Our overall experience was great and we shall return and take advantage of more of what the resort has to offer like the pool and spar. Maybe our next visit management will offer us a special manager rate or a suit at a ocean rate.

    From roaches in the room, to clogged toilets, wifi that won’t stay connected, watching the barista take dirty dishes out of a sink to make me a hot chocolate, to asking for a clean plate and getting a dirty one with stuck food on it - this place is gross. Not a 5 star hotel and barely a two star hotel. Beware.

    Excellent experience

    Easy access to everything in the city, super clean premises awesome breakfast buffet. Parking lot is huge I must say I felt very safe and welcomed here. My ocean view room was everything. Many thanks to the magnificent hotel staff. Special thanks to Ms. Jessenia I firmly believe this young lady takes customer service to the next level. She took care of every detail of my stay and was very knowledgeable of her work, for that am thankful. Kuddos to Ms. Dahiana the bartender for promptly fulfilling my strawberry mimosas request. You ladies rock! Muchas gracias Catalonia Santo Domingo. I can’t wait o come back!!!
