Rooms need to be upgraded, very outdated. We traveled with family and they needed to switch rooms, there was a water leak in the bath. The resort has already started renovations in different villas. Get a room in one of these. We bought the upgraded package, Privilege, it was wor

Please do not go to this hotel!!
They try to manipulate you to go to the exclusive Traveler Club, which is on the resort, to take a contract with false promises. They show you if you would be a member of the club low prices for holidays and lots of benefits. Even on the resort y

We booked our trip in february 2018 for december 2018. Three days before we fly to Punta Cana our travel agency told us that the hotel has cancelled our booking because of "overbooking".
How is this possible??? The hotel knows since 8 months, that we come in december???

Dear guest, Please accept our apologies due to being transferred to an alternative hotel due to unexpected issues at Catalonia Gran Dominicus, I assure you that relocating our guests is the last option and when we are forced to do so, we always offer our best disposition and options to remedy the inconvenient, many times these compensations are very well accepted by our guests and at other times they are declined, such is the case. Believe me we value all our options and it was the best offer we could make. I regret that you considered it insufficient. For our part there is nothing left to thank for your time and patience, we hope that this experience does not prevent you from returning to the Dominican Republic. Best regards, General Manager

Inadmissible de rester ouvert pendant d'aussi gros travaux. Et c'est surtout le bruit qui est horrible : recherchez "jet tours république dominicaine cauchemar" sur Youtube pour voir (et surtout entendre) en vidéo à quel point c'est insupportable.

I'm thinking of booking for next year but wanted to know how lenient the dress code is for men? It says on the website that at nearly every restaurant you have to wear long trousers and closed toe shoes. Is it that strict?
Generally no. Had no problem with shorts/sandals, but there’s always that “one employee” that may make it an issue.

Is this a Non Smoking property?
No, absolutely not. It is very popular with Europeans who smoke everywhere.

I booked in the privileged section 12/15-12/22/18. The last review I read said that there is construction going on and that it was bothersome. I contacted the resort yesterday and was told that it isn't near the privileged rooms but if it's annoying throughout the resort, I might rethink my reservation. Can I get any feedback? Thanks!!
Good luck and great experiences at Dreams! We’ll likely visit there next. They’ve practically the same beach, so this won’t be an issue. And you can swim anywhere you wish - it’s public, not private water. It’s only 3 years old, so grand opening hiccups should’ve been resolved by now, and everything should be just fresher and newer. More English speaking guests, too. So personnel should be better in that department, too. For future reference, there are service roads that run b/w Catalonia and Dreams and Catalonia and Iberostar, both of which are Catalonia’s it seems. Avoid rooms along there at either of these resorts if car noise is an issue. The one along Dreams’ side seems far less used than the other.
