Lawrence Citarelli, Jr., an international builder and developer recognized by the Congress of The Dominican Republic for his global business dealings, is developing a 60 unit, 154 key, 5 Star oceanfront condominium hotel in the city of Cabrera on the spectacular North Coast of the Dominican Republic.   One part of a series of four other projects, Cristal Beach Resort is known as a CondoTel, a model offering investors the opportunity to own their own titled piece of paradise (insured by world renowned Fidelity Title) and share in the profits of the resort operations. This area is being touted by the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism and President Leonel Fernandez himself as the Monte Carlo of the Caribbean.  Mr. Citarelli develops projects that are carefully intertwined with the surrounding natural elements, are debt free, offer security of principal, generate income, provide capital appreciation while adhering to eco-friendly and humanitarian tenets. “I make a conscious and deliberate effort on a daily basis to be humble in my successes and appreciative of my opportunities,” Mr. Citarelli explains.

Cristal Beach offers a unique lifestyle with a master plan.  This Caribbean oasis and private, gated community boasts spectacular oceanfront residences that blend the unspoiled tropical surroundings, orchid adorned cliffs and pristine beaches with world class golf, spa, fitness, yoga, deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, dining and unrivaled hospitality.  The design and development team at Cristal Beach Resort have seamlessly blended the architectural influences of the South of France and the Amalfi Coast of Italy with the exotic beauty of the Dominican Republic.  Within this eclectic compound one will experience a remarkable tropical paradise featuring: voluminous, free flowing, fully furnished suites and penthouses, amazing views, two spectacular infinity pools, a multi-venue restaurant and bar, live entertainment, full maid services, business center, gourmet store and boutique, internet, cable and satellite, and full concierge services.
