    Location 7.75 /10

    Located in Bayahibe on the Caribbean coast, in the south-east of the Dominican Republic, near the Eastern National Park, facing the islands of Saona and Catalina, the hotel is a few miles away from an authentic small fishing village. It is located 17 miles from La Romana, an important urban centre, and its international airport Punta Aguila (25 minutes). Las Americas international airport of Santo Domingo is located 71 miles away (within one hour and a half) and Punta Cana is 62 miles away (within one hour and a quarter).

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    The rooms are tastefully decorated. Painted ochre, a small typical sink covered with glazed tiles... it is a pleasure to spend the night at the Gran Dominicus. Amenities in the rooms include: air conditioning, satellite television, ? fan, ? mini-bar, ? bathroom with ? shower, a hair dryer, a safe and a balcony.

    Overview 7.75 /10

    This facility, built in 1998, consists of 16 colonial-style buildings (not including the suites): a total of 404 rooms. The large swimming pool, the tropical garden, and the beautiful beach seduce you at the very outset. However, there are two disadvantages: you have to walk to reach the key sites and the common areas are less attractive than the buildings where the lodgings are located.

    Food and drink 8.00 /10

    The three restaurants, semi-open or air-conditioned, offer good cuisine. You can have lunch and dinner at the Club Restaurant, the international buffet, and the Grill restaurant and enjoy the Italian Pasta e Pizza, open for lunch and dinner without reservation.

    Beach 8.25 /10

    The Gran Dominicus beach is a bit narrow yet beautiful: turquoise blue lagoon, fine white sand, coconut trees... It has deckchairs and hosts a sailing club, which offers a few water activities.

    To know

    The Gran Dominicus hotel is one of the most welcoming hotels in the Dominican Republic. Thanks to its very careful decoration, you will feel as if you were in a small colonial village. It is a delight to stay in its ochre yellow or red ochre bungalows. It is a pleasure to swim in the lagoon blue sea. It is miraculous to be in Bayahibe, one of the most typical resorts on the southern coast. In short, few faults can be found at the Gran Dominicus.

        Etions dans la chambre 3233 dans la villa Samana. Les jardins sont magnifiquement entretenus La restauration est de très bonne qualité avec possibilité de manger 4 fois dans des restaurants de spécialités. Les chambres sont très grandes. Celle ci est propre avec une salle de bain qui effectivement mériterait une rénovation. Coffre fort gratuit. Très bonne WIFI dans la chambre et à la réception. Une équipe d'animation très jeune qui participe à sa manière au coté magique de cette semaine.

        Hotel très bien entretenu, chambres agréables. Les jardins sont splendides. Le personnel parle le français. L'équipe d'animation est géniale. Les spectacles proposés le soir sont top. La nourriture y est plus que correcte et le resto mexicain est très bon. Excellent séjour dans cet hôtel.

      • Advantages

        Hotel assez proche de l'île de saona. Il y a également une petite fabrique à cigare tenue par des français à 2 pas de l'hôtel.

      • Disavantages

        Très familiale, en période de vacances scolaire beaucoup de jeunes enfants. Pas de reproche sur l'hôtel

        Chambre privilège très bien avec mini-bar gratuit. Jardin superbe et bien entretenu. Grand choix de nourriture. Excellent petit déjeuner. Tout est inclus. Belle plage.

      • Advantages

        Tranquillité. On est vraiment dépaysé. Le "tout inclus" est un gros avantage ! Le départ des excursions n'est pas très loin et la plupart des tours opérateurs viennent nous chercher à l'hôtel pour les excursions.

      • Disavantages

        Certaines chambres mériteraient d'être rafraichies !!! le déco n'est pas terrible dans les chambres "vieillottes" !

We strongly recommend this place.
