The resort is very nice. The jr suites were nice. Clean rooms and resort. The service could be improved. They are on the slow side. Another thing I found was we stayed on the royal end and they can at least let you know what activities are happening for the day on the other side. We never knew what shows... More

Stayed here from 25th July until 8th August. This hotel is lovely. Excellent choice of food with 3 restaurants on the Royal side and another 6 on the Bavaro side. Food was lovely especially in the Thai restaurant in the evening by the pool and the Thalassa. Service could be slow at times but it was well worth the wait.... More

We had a great time while on this vacation mainly because we made it great, not because this resort was great. This doesn’t mean the resort was bad neither. We stayed here for 6 nights. We originally made reservations for the Catalonia Bavaro, but upgraded to Catalonia Royal Bavaro(“Privileged”-the adults only part of the resort). There are a lot of... More

We have stayed at quite a few all inclusives over the past few years, this one wasn't bad at all, it just wasn't amazing. Room service menu doesn't have much variety which would be fine if you didn't plan on eating it more than once or twice. We were harassed by quite a few employees of the Catalonia to go... More

Just back from two weeks here (2-17 Aug) and can only give 5 stars to this place. So much has already been said about the fantastic staff, big rooms, excellent food, and lovely beach. Service is first class generally, but remember this is the Caribbean so more relaxed than Europe or the US. For excursions we would recommend Outback Tours,... More

I have stayed in many 5 star hotels in key west or europe but have to say that this tops them all. I was a little bit afraid of the all inclusive experience since it's our first AI and you can't change anything if it's bad. But it was excelent! :) Arriving here felt like entry into paradise with the... More

We arrived on aug 12 and left the 15th. It was 11 degrees in Canada so we decided to return. It's our third time here. The weather was amazing. It was windy for a bit causing seaweed to come on the beach. It's an ocean people not a lake. We took some bread out to feed the little fish which... More

Love, love, love...can't rave enough about this amazing place. We just returned from our second trip of the summer and definitely one of my favorite trips ever. We stayed from Aug 8-13 and when I say that I'm not a fan of visiting the someplace twice just because it's such a big world with so much to see and do... More

Let me break this up into fair categories: Staff - EXCEPTIONAL. I swear there was a ratio of one staff for every two guests. Amazing ability to understand many languages - french, english, spanish, and many more. Helpful and caring. Rooms - okay. Not what I would consider a 3 star but nice. They were large rooms, beautifully decorated with... More
