This was our second time in Catalonia. We have mixed feelings about this stay. Pros: 1. Seemed like resort really pays attention to reviews and comments on the property. Access to beach is now equipped with the path patially made of some plastic parts and partially from wood. They might want to change the plastics to all wood because plastic... More

There are a lot of bad and good reviews on here. I have to admit after reading the more bad reviews I got real nervous as soon as we landed in D.R. about how our stay at the Catalonia would be. I'm not going to bash this resort as I have no reason to, I'm just going to state my... More

So, this place is not horrible, but for the money, it is not very advisable. We stayed in early June of 2015. Great weather, no problems there. Our Room. Clearly dated. Black enamel closet doors and furniture need a new coat of paint, or need to be replaced. Old, scratched, dusty etc.. just worn looking. Room overall was very ordinary,... More

I was excited to go back to this hotel after 10 years, because that's where I spent my honey moon at. Sad to say it all has changed. I'll give you the positive first. The pool is bigger and better, clean and not over crowded. The food was good, and they have a nice variety. La Yuca restaurant is DELICIOUSLY... More

Due to the flight delay, we arrived at the hotel after 1 AM. This hotel is a villa style, which helps keep the noise down. The garden is well kept and beautiful. The room we entered was located near the reception. The room is dated and the vanity is slanted so the water on the vanity drips down to the... More

This resort was the worst that I have ever been to. We reserved 4 rooms. 3 of the 4 rooms didn't have air conditioning. We kept calling front desk and they pretended to be working on it.
