We had a wonderful vacation at the Catalonia Royal. I would stress that we were on the Royal side and I don't think my review would be as high had that not been the case. We definitely enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of the Royal pools and beach area. We had pretty low expectations in terms of food and drink and were pleasantly surprised by both. We took full advantage of the unlimited drink options and were happy with the quality and friendliness of the staff. I would highly recommend the Cata Tapa restaurant on the Royal side. It was the best dinner we had by far. The themed restaurants on the other side were not so good, but I'm not sure why anyone would expect an Italian restaurant in a resort in the Dominican to be good. The staff on the Royal side was noticeably friendlier and seemed happier as well. I would also recommend asking for a room on the lake/pool side. Our room was on the ground floor on the opposite side of the buildings and seemed a bit darker.
Another pleasant surprise was that there are no other resorts near Catalonia. We went for long walks on the beach and barely saw anyone else. There are wierd shop things about 50 meters on either side of the hotel, but if you get past those, you will be alone on the beach for as long as you wish.
I would definitely go back.
