Amazing resort!

Stayed Jan 29-feb 5 This was our 4th time back at this resort. We absolutely love it here. The staff, especially Santa at the beach and Genoveva and Carlos at the pool bar, are amazing. We’ve had a swim up room in the past but chose the romantic suite this time, it was great. Lots of space, very clean, the shower/tub room was amazing. Lots of hot water, plenty of towels. The balcony was spacious and comfortable with a hammock. The food is great. Fresh made omelette made to order each morning in the lobby restaurant was delicious. The Sea Blue restaurant was also great for breakfast right beside the beach. Service was a little slow here but we’re in no hurry. You will need long pants and closed toe shoes for men at the Tapas restaurant. We enjoyed the pizza place beside the lobby pool and delicious chicken salad. At night it is an Asian restaurant with tasty food. No reservations are required and we had no problem getted seated each night. The steakhouse on the family side is always a big hit, we usually go twice. The entertainment has gotten better as the years go on. We love that it is a small resort and you can walk everywhere. Getting chairs by the pool or on the beach can be challenging but we had some friends that were early birds and grabbed seats on the beach for us. Afternoon by the lobby pool always had chairs available. Enjoyed a lovely couples massage at the Algeria Spa. We’ll be back in 2 years and can’t wait!!!

Very nice

The resort was nice. It has two pools, the one by the lobby is the party pool and by the beach is the relaxing one. The beach is not the best one I've seen in punta cana but it is nice. I like to swim and in areas it gets very shallow. The food is good, I only had one bad meal, so I went to a different restaurant.

Очень хорошо!

Отличное местоположение. Прекрасные прогулки вдоль моря. Но дно моря не очень хорошее: неровное, с кочками из морских трав и даже камнями. Отличное обслуживание. Внимательный и приветливый персонал. На ланч и обед можно выбрать вкусные блюда. Но, к сожалению, завтраке неважные: жесткие невкусные омлеты, не было обычных для завтраков овсян каш.

It Was OK

Rooms were large and kept clean; a bit tired (very stiff sliders to closet and patio, shower floor did not drain well). I had emailed Catalonia 2 weeks prior to arrival to inquire on golf and received no reply; once at the resort, I was told I could not get on the course on any day til after 11:35, which is a bit too hot to enjoy - so why offer free golf if it is not really available? We did enjoy the beach Hobie's which were not that busy when we were there. Food was fine, and especially at Thalassa - would forgo visiting the Japanese restaurant if we went again. Service in general was very good, both room staff as well as bar & restaurant. I think I would have been more pleased if this was a 4 day get away vs a full week with little to do other than eat & drink as I prefer to keep fairly active.

Excellent Experience

This was the first time we enjoyed an all-inclusive resort. Catalonia made it a great experience. The grounds were beautifully kept and the beach area provided all of the shade that you would want with a grove of palm trees. A handy juice bar with fantastic offerings and a game area at the beach was a great touch. The pools, restaurants, and other areas of the resort were kept spotless, as were the rooms. Breakfasts gave you everything you could think of and a lot more. The music every night by the main pool was a pleasure - tasteful and varied every night. Easily enjoyed while having dinner outside. One of the best things was that nothing ever seemed crowded. I would recommend the Royal Catalonia to anyone who wanted to chill.

3rd time returning

We enjoyed our stay very much although we did like it better when it was a smaller resort I was also very surprised that there was no hand sanitizer anywhere.

Rooms were beautiful, clean, cool. Staff were organized, helpful, friendly. Food and drinks were great! Loved the multiple restaurant choices and no reservations. Small 9 hole golf courses was fun to play!

Lovely, clean, small, quiet resort for adults only. Pools were beautiful and clean. Grounds were immaculate. Washrooms were kept clean. Housekeeping was good. Room was large. Restaurant food was great. Buffet was good. Love the idea of no reservations required. Beach was kept clean despite seaweed coming ashore. Staff were very engaging and nice.

Overall good experience

Resort was beautiful and clean. There were several restrooms throughout resort that needed repairs or attention (toilet paper holder falling off wall, door locks not working or missing completely, no paper towels or hand dryer), but overall resort and grounds were well-manicured and beautifully designed. We loved the villa with the private pool and appreciated the float that was there when we arrived. I do wish the Sorrento pizza on the adults only side had pizza available by the slice but we did walk over to the sister resort and enjoy slices a few times. The saving of chairs and Bali beds is out of control but don’t know how the resort can better prevent/regulate that. We were apparently supposed to have beach towels in our room upon check-in, but did not. This was easily remedied. The food was OK, nothing spectacular, but certainly not horrible. The weather was great and the options for activities was plentiful. Staff was overall friendly but level of service was not consistent across restaurants or even wait staff within restaurants.

Exclusive two floor suite with plunge pool.

Overall the staff was very nice, and attentive. My experience here was good. Everyone that worked her had a huge smile on their face, and were very warm.We got the two floor suite with the plunge pool, definitely worth paying extra. Our friend booked a junior suite and he definitely did not receive the same caliber of service as we did, and his room had a little musty smell to it. My biggest issue was getting a space on the beach, we were unable to because people would put their towels on the chairs and beds and leave them there. The chairs were not being utilized 85% of the time, but somehow were claimed by someone. Catalonia should figure this out, so that everyone can enjoy the beach.

Wow! Wonderful vacation and beautiful resort.

First time at this resort. After a terrible vacation in Cuba last year we decided on Dominican. This resort is a great size easy access to everything. Loved the restaurants and loved we did not need reservations. Food was amazing, grounds and pools beautifully maintained. Staff were wonderful. Resort is very clean. Already planning on returning later this year. We will definitely be repeat travelers here like many of the other vacationers that we met. This resort really wowed us!!

First Time at an All-Inclusive

Overall a pleasant experience. We stayed on the Royal side which is designated for adults only. An excellent choice if you don't have children. We upgraded to the "Privileged" accommodation but in reality I could not discern any difference between it and the regular stay. Our room was facing the back but was as advertised in size and accoutrements. The balcony had a hammock which we used every day. I might recommend a room facing the pool area but it was not really a big deal. The larger suites with pools were nice but for as little as we stayed in the room I really couldn't justify the price difference (or as I said the "privileged" upgrade). Let's talk about the food. Overall I would say it was good to very good. You could tell the servers had done this repeatedly and they were generally less than enthusiastic but for the most part everything was pretty good. The best restaurants were the Mikado Asian fusion and the Tao-Cat, both of which required pants and a collared shirt. The worst restaurant by far was the buffet Gran Caribbean. The Rodeo Steak House was underwhelming, as was the Tuscany Italian. The Yuca was barely above par. For lunches and snacks all were average to above average. We really enjoyed the quick and easy pizzas plus the sushi at the beach bar was fresh and always hit the spot when a quick snack was required. The staff was generally friendly and helpful. Hint: tip the evening turn down maid and you will be treated to a better level of service. We were invited to an hour long presentation to consider the vacation upgrade package. We sat through it and were rewarded with a 25 minute massage for my wife and $350 coupon for our next visit (if taken this year) The vacation upgrade package is nice and I am sure fits into some peoples idea of how to allocate their money but it just didn't fit in ours. I can tell you that if the amenities for platinum executive level guests are pretty nice. But of course why wouldn't they be, right? While we rented a car (on our own and not through the hotel) we spoke to several couples that took advantage of the hotels concierge and participated in various adventures with which they indicated their pleasure for both content and price. If you do rent a car I highly recommend any global chain that provides a full coverage, zero deductible protection plan vs the local recommendations which all had $1000 USD deductibles for about the same rate. Oh, gas is nearly $5 a gallon. Finally, if you want to play golf, make sure you have a confirmed tee time. While the green fee is covered the cart is not and without a confirmed tee time you will be golfing in the heat of the day. No fun! Do not believe anyone that tells you a tee time is not required! Just like here in the states, it is. It was a good value. I would stay again and use my knowledge to my better advantage. Have fun.
