The Diversions
Far from the crowds of the island's more commercial beachside cities, La Romana stands out as the ultimate Dominican Republic Escape. Paradisiacal enough to draw its share five-star resorts to its white-sand beaches, yet close enough to its cane-field roots and origins as an agricultural village, La Romana offers something other Dominican vacation spots often don't: authenticity. To the east lies Altos de Chavón, a Spanish-inspired castle that speaks to the town's Colonial history. Off the coast sits Isla Catalina, a natural refuge ripe for snorkeling. And right in front of you ensconced in palm trees and island blooms: paradise.

The Digs
Like a deliciously layered cake, the Catalonia Gran Dominicus unfolds with sweet surprise after surprise. Frothy waves tickle the resort's sugar-sand beaches, densely sprinkled with sky-reaching palm trees and royal blue lounge chairs. Further inland, manicured grasses hint at the area's reputation for golf, and sleek pool decks teeming with gardens reflect the conical spires of the resorts main building, making it clear how this property has earned its four stars. Air-conditioned rooms overlook plush gardens and are outfitted in sunny Caribbean colors highlighted by large, airy windows. In-room Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a mini-bar allow for simple conveniences while spacious king beds and furnished terraces or balconies invigorate with comfort.

The Diversions
Participate in a variety of on-site activities including aerobics, volleyball, water gymnastics, & more
• Float along the shoreline in a catamaran or other non-motorized watercraft
• Learn to scuba dive with a lesson in the pool, or—if experienced—explore the ocean depths next door
• Lounge on the beach from the comfort of the resort's customizable beach chairs
• Treat yourself to a massage in the spa or dance all night in the on-site discotheque
