I live in Santo Domingo but often visit Cabrera. I usually stay at a private casa but it was unavailable last weekend so I stayed at La Catalina. I have eaten supper at La Catalina several times and it is among the DR's best bar none. They employ a French chef who takes great advantage of the locally available seafood to prepare outstanding fare. The hotel is located in the hills above Cabrera with a spectacular view towards the ocean. The staff was very friendly and the service outstanding, something of a rarity in this country. The wine menu offers a nice variety of French, Spanish, Chilean and US wines. The hotel property is beautifully landscaped. The room I had was had a nice mattress and a great view down the hill looking towards the Atlantic. Infact, I believe all rooms offer the same vista. There are 2 pools and a large jacuzzi. The hotel provides transportation to and from area beaches, golf etc. What I like best is that it isn't an all-inclisive with masses of screaming locos, but the prices are competetive although a bit higher than the mega-resorts. For peace of mind, it's well worth it to stay at La Catalina. In fact, that is why I like Cabrera. It isn't packed with tourists but is located near good beaches, playa grande golf course (highly recommend), and is within reasonable drive to cascading (another highly recommend for the physically fit), horse riding, diving, and the whales. The hotel also had a nice band that played lively tunes after the restaurant closed. Good dancing. Later we went into town for more carrying-on at the tiki bar in the town square. Great time, very friendly locals.
