There were 4 couples in our group. None of us had been to Punta Cana so we wanted to pick one with a direct flight from Hamilton Ont. Looked on trip advisor for some help choosing . Could not be more pleased. We like to golf and the nine hole course is right there. The 18 hole we enjoyed the... More

After reading some of the reviews online, my husband and I had lowered our expectations for our vacation but found out we didn't need to. We were so pleasantly surprised and we feel this resort is a hidden gem. We stayed there from April 5-12, 2014. We had booked a Junior Suite Deluxe room. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly greeted....

This was my wife and I's second time staying at Royal Catalonia. We were there from 30 Mar-6 Apr and had a wonderful vacation. I first want to thank Westjet for looking after the group from Nova Scotia when our return flight was cancelled by finding us a last minute all inclusive for the extra night and sending us a... More

On the face of it his is a fantastic resort, however, the quality in certain areas was lacking and I would not describe it akin to a 5 star hotel elsewhere in the world. I assume the star rating is based on certain criteria being met rather than the quality. To put this in perspective, this was my first visit... More

Well,my husband and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful resort Beach-calm,clear,shallow water where you can see lots of fish swimming around. Staff do a very good job raking up the seaweed. You do need to get there early in the morning to get a palapa though. Pools-there are 2 nice pools,1 with a pool bar & jacuzzi. The... More

Let me start off by saying that this was the 9th All Inclusive resort that my wife and I have visited since 2006. We have been to Cuba, Jamacia, Mexico and for the last 2 years, Punta Cana. I really don't know where to start with this resort so I'll start at the beginning. We stayed at the Catalonia Royal... More

We spent a week at the Royal in late January 2014. This was our first visit to the DR. The weather was picture perfect (Low 80s and sunny) every day except our day of departure, and even then there was some sun between the showers. We thought the food on the Royal side of the resort was very good. We... More

Stayed for 10 days this time and the vacation was perfect! Not once have I ever been approached by sellers of the time shares or vacation club. Although the language barrier can be challenging, we were always able to get our point across, we loved trying to communicate and learned some Spanish in the meantime. Special thanks to Carlos (of...
