When I was in Punta Cana a couple of years ago, I stayed at the Catalonia. While there, we did a day trip to the French Canadian jewellery lady -- I think her name was Nicole?? Anyway, they arranged the transportation back.
On the way back to the Catalonia, we stopped at several places to drop people off. One of the hotels really caught my eye and I wrote down the name, but lost the paper and I don't remember what it was called!
I'm hoping that if I describe it, it will wring a bell with someone who has stayed there.
It was a large hotel. Probably close to a 1000 room, if not more.
When the bus pulled into the circular drive out front, we could look right through the lobby and out on to the beach and the ocean. I think that the front of the hotel is on higher ground than the back of the hotel as it seems that we looked down on the beach. I'm not sure, but I think that the lobby area may have been two stories -- not just tall, but two actual stories.
Maybe someone who also went to see the jewellery lady might recognize the hotel stop??
Hope someone can help -- and if you know which hotel is it, and have stayed there, did you like it??
Thanks so much!!
