Catalonia DRPosted Dec 1, 2013
Ground and landscaping where beautiful. Water was incredible and beaches where outstanding. Unless you are European, I would not stay at this hotel. There is a blatant dislike of Americans in this hotel. Staff was very rude, bartenders unresponsive no matter if tipped or not. No service on the beach and no easy beach access. Have about a 3 ft drop off to get to beach while stepping on rocks and trying to balance your drinks and cargo. No close bars to the actual beach. Food was what we expected but worse than any other resort we have gone to. Then there is the "privlaged", the word used when you upgrade. Non privlaged people can only access buffet style restraurants, and the most scenic beach front eatery is privalaged seating only. We did have a complete blast, but where very surprised at the lack of service. Oh and almost no English spoken at hotel, so work on your Spanish! I loved the DR but will never stay at te Catalonia again. Dreams seems to be much better.

Amazing holidays in amazing place!Posted Nov 29, 2013
Pros: Beach, restaurant, swimming pool, rooms.
Cons: Alcohol drinks and more fitness devices.
Location: The Beach is beautifull and there is no other people except hotel guest.
The hotel, staff and beach are excelent. We were there with 2 years old son and swimming pool was perfect for child as well for adult. We have a prebilaged version of room and our stay so we were able to use all restaurants and all fascilities. Cleaniness of the room and all places in resort was really excellent. Food (taste and choice) really good. For sure I recomend it for everybody! Moreover if I think about next vacation I will try to find something from Catalonia hotels. The only thing they should improve are alcohol drinks and fitness centrum.

Got an UNBELIEVABLE deal on this vacation, $600 a piece for 4 days from Tampa, Fl. Me and my girlfriend had a great time due to the very friendly staff...OLA!...and the well kept beautiful landscape. Had Dinner on the beach for our last night and the hotel even gave us fresh fruit in our room every night. Can't say enough about this place, book your vacation NOW!
