A day in Paradise

We had a great time at Catalonia. This was our 5th visit. We noticed there seem to be a cut back in staff. A lot of new faces in the animation group. Seem to be less in the group.. previous years the mingled with all the customers. Not so much this year. The food was pretty good. We had a couple of our group get stomach issues, which has never happened before..(we are a group of 9) The menu in the Yuka changed last year and was not to our liking, so we did not go the that restaurant.. The service was great in the restaurants.. Antony was great with our group. We were glad to see Ruben back at the end of our vacation.. Carolina in the buffet was excellent she sure made us welcome.. we were sad to see Luis Rameriz in the Italian restaurant leave.. he always looked after us...he has been looking after us for the last 5 years and we always looked forward to seeing him. Sarah at the lobby bar was always looking after us.. she even remembers what some of us drank from previous years.. again she is a great asset to Catalonia.. We are all golfers and the golf staff are great.. Alexandria in the pro shop was always waiting for us... Michael in the back shop was always a pleasure to deal with.. then you have Ernesto jack of all trades... he was doing the carts and driving the van.. he never stopped...running all the time when Luis was on his vacation. Luis our bus driver was alway there to greet us in the morning as we were always the first pick up. Wonderful and cheerful fella.. he always remembers us from previous years.. Lots of good changes..the steakhouse and the buffet by the pool.. looks great..!!



Won’t Return

Check in was great, efficient and easy. Bell hop boy was wonderful and explained the layout of the resort while driving us to our room. Our room was not what I booked online. This resort shows way to many pictures of the Royal Side and therefore gives travellers false advertising. Our room was somewhat clean and the air conditioning was broken. It was 30 degrees in our room. We phoned maintenance twice to come and fix it and they didn’t speak any English which made if difficult to understand what was wrong. I went to the front desk in the morning of the 6th to get our room switched and we were not offered an upgrade for the inconvenience or anything for that matter. The second room was somewhat clean but the rooms are out dated. On the 7th the maids did not clean our room and I had to phone the front desk 4 times for someone to bring us towels. On the 8th the maids again did not clean the room and we had to phone again for towels. Our bar fridge was not stocked on either of those days. The buffet close to the pool had terrible service. We did not get offered drinks at any meal and there was a ton of bird poo all over the chairs. It was not clean and birds were often eating off of people’s plates and in the buffet food. We did enjoy the pool space and the amount of trees on the property. Bar staff were great and so were the entertainment staff.



todo muy bien

Overall left disappointed

Brian Scandariato10-02-20



We had a lovely relaxing holiday. Check in was quick and we asked for a room nearer to the pool, which they were able to give us. Pool area was always spotless first thing on a morning. Food was good, we always ate off of the grill. Table service was sometimes a bit to be desired. Took a good while to get a drink whether it be coffee, water. Sometimes there wasnt any bowls for breakfast, you'd ask and it would still be 15 mins or so of waiting. But on the whole fine. Weekends were not so relaxing mostly sundays where you seems to get invaded by the locals, they had no respect for the people who were there for a holiday, they took over sunbeds already being used and some even riffled through bags. It made you feel reluctant to leave your sunbed. We were not informed at any point that locals can come in. Apart from this we had a lovely time. Lots of wildlife, loved the birds. Love coming to the Dominican Republic.



My stay at Catalonia

I enjoyed my stay ..the staff was pleasant and very helpful. Especially restaurant staff Juan and Carolina and Customer service management Yana.



Girl trip 2020

Wonderful hospitality staff from waiters/waitresses, bartenders, house keeping and entertainment. We were very well taken care of by all. Service with a smile and kindness. The main buffet has an outstanding staff. I saw each of them daily, they became like friends. Making us feel welcomed and so quick to serve us.



Great place

We had an amazing time!




It is a beautiful resort and would go back for sure. ONLY downfall I have is the walk from the rooms to the buffet can be very far as the resort is big and we were right by the pool.



Goed hotel alleen paar min punten.

Over het algemeen is het een goed hotel. Alleen onze minpunten op een rij: -rij voor restaurant en buffet -bijna nooit drinken krijgen bij het grote buffet restaurant. -de mannen in witte bloesjes bij het zwembad zijn verschrikkelijk vervelend en proberen van alles te verkopen en te doen en blijven maar door zeuren. -we hadden een tour geboekt, maar werd toen we die ochtend opgehaald zouden worden gecanceld wij houden het geld terug dat was goed. Alleen het volledige geld bedrag had hij niet elke keer weer 10 dollar geven. Tot dat wij weg moesten wat hij wist en wij hebben nog steeds 30 dollar niet terug gekregen. Dat is dus onze neus door geboord. -geen afwisseling met eten, (grootste minpunt) Aanraders: -boek tours via TripAdvisor niet via de verkopers in het hotel. -ga of heel vroeg eten of heel laat. -als je zekerheid op een goed plekje wil bij het strand moet je rond 07:00 handdoek leggen. -heerlijke verse smoothies op het strand -heerlijke verse coffee bij het shopping stukje. -koop niks in de winkels van het hotel je betaald 50% meer vergeleken op het vliegveld. -mooie kamers groot bad. -hotel is milieu bewust begonnen dat vind ik super.

Wedding party

Enjoyed our stay for a week January 19 th to 26 th 2020 . Kelly at reception was fantastic took care of all our needs and stepped up when checking in our our son and his wife .



Very good

Great value for the money. I highly recommend this resort. Food was excellent, very clean, location on beach is great with lots of shade huts, good WiFi. Well maintained property with some rooms are in need of a refresh. This was my second time there and I'm definitely going back for a third and have recommended it to friends.



Good effort

Beautiful property. Good food options. Nice rooms. Some staff very friendly and fun, some staff need to smile more and be more friendly. Seem to be short staffed in main lobby bar at times making service slow. Animation team was full of energy and fun. Our stay needed with an unfortunate incident with our luggage ending up at the airport before we left the hotel resulting in some stressful moments until we located it. Many thanks to Manuel from the bell staff for sticking with us and coming to the airport with us to help us locate our luggage.



Great place to stay

I recommend this resort to everyone, we travelled as a couple. We are in our 60's. Every think that you could want is here, a great choice of places to eat, numerous bars in lovely manicured grounds . But what makes this a special place are the staff ,who without fail great you with a smile and do everything they can to make your stay a success.

Less than expected

Accommodations were dated, need of updating and repairs. Thought that poor condition of rooms was a maketing tactic to get us to pay for a room upgrade of $280.00 for the week stay. Hot water in room was not a constant. Shortage of fresh towels at the pool. Food was average. Some staff extremely friendly others weren't. They did a good job cleaning up the weeds on the beach daily. Nightly entertainment needs some help.



2020 Vacation

I enjoyed the hotel, the events, the shows, the golf course and the staff. Everyone was very friendly.. Juan Antonio Alcantara Reyes was especially friendly and he arranged two birthday cakes to celebrate my fiances 61st birthday. Carolina was hostess at the Italian Restaurant and she paid special attention to arranging a wonderful dinner when my son arrived. Every interaction with hotel personnel was always enjoyable. They made every effort to get people included in the games and nightly entertainment.



First Time

This was our first time using ETC and first time at Punta Cana. The overall experience was good but I wish it was more organized. Pros 1. Foods were really good in overall. options are good. we did not like the Tao cat 2. the location of the room is very good. comfy, clean, hot water, etc. 3. ETC lounge is really nice and comfy 4. night shows are very good. 5. pools are very clean and nice 6. pool activities are very nice. I think giving out certificate is really a good idea 7. massage was really good. Cons 1. very difficult to communicate at times. we had a lot of miscommunications and misunderstanding of trips, available services, answering questions, etc. 2. services were varied. sometimes services are really good, staffs are friendly, but other times services are really bad 3. Need more snack options 4. a lot of times, staffs assumed that we were not ETC members so we sat at different tables. it is totally ok but when we tried to order ETC menus, they said those are for only ETC members. We told them we are ETC members and they looked shocked. not sure what shocked them. 5. our room was next to Pearl and music was very loud. I could feel the bass with window closed 6. we tried to get a ride from the adult side to our room, a staff was looking at a paper without explaining anything for 10 minutes. we tried to communicate with him but it was not successful so we decided to walk. 7. smokers are smoking everywhere even though there was a sign of the non smoking sign. especially the family side, I think it is important to emphasize Suggestion Outside Jacuzzi at family side please



Nice resort

Very nice resort great people. The only two issues I had was the room keys kept failing and the people constantly hounding you in the main lobby to buy stuff aside from that I would definitely go back




I loved staying there



Very good

Spacious, clean rooms. Articles for shoes and maintenance of shoes would be required.

Wonderful Resort

This is a wonderful resort with fabulous food, incredibly friendly and helpful staff, and a gorgeous beach. We did have problems with our room. The air conditioning wasn't working properly when we arrived, and it took the guy over an hour to fix. At that point, we should have been moved but we were too tired from travel to ask. Then there was an awful smell in the bathroom. Then the toilet broke and wouldn't flush. It got fixed right away but the smell came back - there was something wrong with the plumbing. Then there was no hot water. Clearly, the room was a problem, so we were moved to an upgraded room. Then in the new room there was no hammock and it took many hours and multiple calls to fix. That new room was lovely but it was still a huge hassle to move in the middle of the day. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful but I see this as a management problem as there needs to be more oversight about checking on whether or not everything works in a room before it's ready for new guests. There was such an awful odor in the first bathroom that I can't believe it hadn't been noticed before, etc. Also, that first room faced the Pearl Beach Club where the music was on ALL DAY. Why do resorts think that people want to hear loud music 24/7? We come from noisy cities. All we want to hear is the ocean and the wind.



It is a nice place to stay

My experience was awesome and I really enjoy my time there. People are friendly and their services are pretty nice. I Strongly recommend this place



Un voyage gravé dans nos mémoires
