My experience here in 2014 was superb. My gf and I didn't want to leave. Hotel staff were friendly, the excursions that we went on were the icing for the trip. Ocean spa excursion was everything! Heavenly to say the least! If you are about relaxation and royalty treatment please please try it! The decor is also to die for.... More

Overall this hotel is excellent, staff very friendly and attentive - always approaching you whilst you lounge round the pool / on the beach asking if you need any drinks etc. Grounds very nicely kept with quite a bit of wildlife to see (they have flamingos all around!) Food also very good (apart from the Italian where food was always... More

My new Husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon. We booked through Berwick Travel (Kelly Pinto is great-highly recommend!) which was great in helping us find a great place on a budget. The resort is huge..it has two sides- and adults only and family side. We stayed and the adults only and had access to both sides. They resort... More

I went here for a babymoon in early June. I was surprised to see so many expecting mothers which made me feel very comfortable. We opted to stay at the adults only because it would probably be one of our last trips in a while and we were able to get a good groupon deal. Overall I do recommend the... More

To begin with the staff at this resort were amazing. The food was just average and the property could use to be updated. My daughter's room had a leak from room upstairs, we called twice and no one ever came. The alcohol was not an issue at all. I would not consider property a 4 star by any means.

I bought the groupon and went with 2 of my girlfriends and had a great relaxing trip!! The food was amazing!!! Literally we did not find anything bad with the options. The tapas restaurant by far was our favorite!! Wish we had gone there more than once haha! The pizza bar by the pool is also really good. The buffalo... More

Visited with a group of friends. Royal is worth the upgrade. Pros: 15 min ride from airport, good food, adults only in the royal section, room service is prompt, small flea market closeby, pools, martini bar Cons: Bars close early (lobby bar closes at 12 which is a bummer), Non adult section is very crowded, hard to get any seats...

Just got back from the Catalonia Royal and must admit we were disappointed. This is not a five star hotel maybe not even a 4. With that said you do "get what you pay for" and we did get it for a great price. We have traveled to the Dominican at least ten times as well as Mexico, Jamaica, Barbados,... More

We visited with friends for a week. While the grounds looked nice, the pools needed maintenance (peeling paint, loose tiles, and slippery walkways in particular were unsightly or hazardous). The beach was so clogged with seaweed every day that we decided not to swim in the ocean. And, at each restaurant we visited, the quality of the food was exceeded... More
