We stayed at Catalonia for a week in May. The room was large and clean. Mini-fridge was stocked with water, soda, and beer each day. The hotels grounds and common areas were also kept very clean. My favorite part of this hotel was the beach. It was beautiful and very swimmable (no rocks, waves but not too rough). The only problem was that the chairs under palapas were claimed very early in the morning. No one on the beach, but every chair with some shade was taken by 7:30am. I guess this happens everywhere though.
The animation staff was great. They were running activities all day and at night. They could use more servers and bartenders at the pool bar. I think there was only one server for the whole beach area. It took a long time to get your drink if you ordered from him. Same thing at the bar.
Restaurants were good. Food was mostly average. The buffet had a huge selection. Our favorite restaurant was the tapas place (I forget the name).
