“Excellent hotel for couples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I do really recommend this hotel, it is awesome just 15 minutes away from the Int. Airport of Punta Cana; if you are looking for an romantic place just for you and your couple this is the right place, it's not a bigger hotel, just adults, quite, beautiful and the guest service is awesome. The beach it is really beautiful, the water it is clear, the sand it is so beautiful, this hotel has 2 pools really good also.
The food there it is ok and the cocktails also.

This resort is great for couples that wants a lot of private and quiet time. ( but If you are looking for more fun you can always walk around in the Bavaro area which is very active and loud which I like =) ) food quality is way better in Catalonia Royal it is worth to upgrade if you are in privilege. (even dough they can take a long time to refill drinks. one time my husband finish his plate before they bring his first drink ) Also Beaches are cleaner in this side wich is beautiful. Take advantage of the natural juice bar that Royal offers ( Mrs. Burgos is the Best, She is outstanding very polite and nice.) Rosa from the privilege reception is also an outstanding employee.( she upgraded us to Royal for the first couple of days and we decided to stay. Thanks Rosa) My only complain is that we sleep the fist night without a/c ( they went and check it. they said they were going to come and fix it but never came back until we complain once again in the morning. After my second complain they fixed with in hours which we appreciated( the receptionist even offer us to change the room, but since they fixed right away( after our second complain) we decided to stay in the same room) My husband;s complain was that he needed to have long pants and close shoes to eat at the restaurants which it did not make sense to him since it is a beach front resort and he wanted to wear short and sandals all day. other than it is great resort.

Room Tip: I will recommend one closer to the reception since the main restaurant is there. there is music in t...

I am really looking foward to my 4th trip at Royal catalonia in Punta Cana on August 30. We have been traveling in several all inclusive in Cuba, Mexico and DR, but this is the only hotel we came back. We just love this place. The service is amazing, the resort is spotless, the food is great ( no reservation for the restaurant). We also enjoy the golf course, it is very well maintain by the gardeners. The beach is beautiful, and the water warm and clear, so ideal for snorkeling. Can't wait to be there

We arrived a day late due to our flight being cancelled which was a shame because we ended up missing an entire day at this great resort. Once we arrived though everything was amazing, the room was gorgeous, the grounds were beautiful and the staff was very pleasant. This was our first time staying at an all inclusive resort so we weren't quite sure what to expect. Turns out, it reminded us a lot like being on a cruise. The food wasn't the best and the portions were very small if you ate at any of the specialty restaurants but all in all we had a great time. One of the factors that played in a role in booking there was that it had a casino, well it was horrible to say the least. First of all it didn't even open until 7pm and most of the machines weren't even on. We like to play the $1 machines and they didn't even have any. They had about four quarter machines and the rest were nickle machines so if you like to stay at a resort with a casino this is not the one for you.

We initially booked with Thomson for our 3rd visit to this fabulous resort. I emailed Josep (general manager) and within an hour he had arranged a surprise upgrade for my husband for our wedding anniversary. The surprise continued as we were greeted at reception with a fab cocktail and taken to our villa with its own private pool.
Thank you Josep and your lovely team my husband was truly surprised and the villa was absolutely amazing!
Throughout our two week stay we were looked after by all of the hardworking staff.
Our villa was cleaned twice a day( including fab flower and towel arrangements), room service was prompt and the grounds were just beautiful!
The range of food on offer has continued to grow with each visit and we particularly enjoyed dining outdoors at the grill.The food was fresh , tasty and our glasses were kept topped up by efficient and friendly staff.
We had a loss of electricity to our villa during our second week but within 5 minutes of our phone call to reception an engineer arrived and fixed the problem immediately! Now that's what I call great service!
The Royal is the place for relaxation within beautiful surroundings with its spar, great pools, excellent food and fab cocktails. Entertainment is available - piano bar, beach BBQ and Dominican day but if you want a little more noise venture to the sister hotel next door ( just a few steps away) and watch one of their fab shows.
Extra touches include 3 full bottles of premium spirits in your villa, fruit platter on arrival, turn down service and a fab team that will arrange anything from golf to dinner on the beach.
Thank you Josep and your lovely team for your hard work and excellent customer service.
We can't wait to visit again!

My new husband & I were well pleased with the honeymoon suite and it's extras such as wine, fruits, & chocolate amenities on our first day there. The housekeeping was excellent and any issues addressed immediately. The property is very level; so, walking was convenient - quick shuttle service was also available as well as entertainment nearby. There was no pressure from vendors or travel services constantly botthering us. This was a pleasant change from most resorts we have visited. Charlot at the front desk was extremely helpful to us.

My daughter and I are checking out this morning and have had a fabulous 6 night stay. The staff was excellent and everyone was always smiling. There were no communication problems. The room was beautiful, not musty. The air conditioner worked fine. Wifi worked perfectly. We loved the quiet of the adult only side and also enjoyed taking part in some of the activities on the other side. The shows were great - especially Saturday Night Fever and Michael Jackson. Both the beach and the pool were wonderful places to spend the day. Food ranged from average to excellent and there were plenty of choices. For the most part the food was not 5 star quality, but neither was the price we paid. I have visited more expensive resorts that were not as nice. Honestly I cannot understand why anyone would not love this resort. It was my first visit but will not be my last.

Room Tip: We had the least expensive room and it was perfect. We were in building 44 which was close to the po...
