If you go beware of a few things...

We went the end of September. The beach was pretty but had a lot of seaweed u had to walk through to get into the water and the water was not clear even when ur only in to your knees. The pool is nice. Theirs two buffets you eat at for breakfast and lunch n you can eat there for dinner as well but The food was not good!! I am not a picky eater either so that says a lot. The restaurants you can only eat between. 6-9 or something and their good but the portions are smaller. The rooms were fine. But the last day the ceiling started to leak. And the maid DOES NOT refill the mini fridge. So we had to call the front desk EVERYDAY! The weather wasn't the best because it was hurricane season. So we tried to go on two excursions. One was "the waterfalls" and the other was sunset cruise". I was told with the waterfall excursion we would see how people live and go see multiple waterfalls and a cave. How awesome right? WRONG!! We drove around seeing a few houses and then got to the "waterfall" and it was 100% man made!!! Their was no other waterfalls OR a cave!!!! Then due to bad weather the cruise got cancelled. So we wanted a refund because we were leaving the next day and couldn't reschedul. When we got to hotel the agent wasn't there that we booked it through so we had to wait. He kept giving us the runaround so we complained to the hotel and they DID NOT CARE!! We lost out on about $150 because they refused to give us a refund!!!! HUGE SCAM!! The only good thing about being here was at the main bar, Eddy the bartender was AMAZING!! If it wasn't for him the trip would of sucked. But he went above and beyond for us!! If you don't care about food and just want to go to lay around and drink then this is the place for you! I've never been anywhere and have nothing to compare this trip to but it was sooo disappointing! They had no activities for you to do and the excursions are hit or miss. All there was to do was eat nasty food. Drink good drinks and lay around by the pool or beach.

So-So

I am not sure if was just the resort or the Dominican in general. Some people are just not very welcoming. I will start with the positives, we met some really fantastic people who worked at the Catalonia. Eddy from the lobby bar, Angelica who is part of the entertainment team and Sarah who also worked in the lobby bar. They did their best to make our honeymoon/birthday trip very special. We signed up for privilege and some of the perks were nice like the massage, but don't be fooled by the free photo that you will receive. I have never met people trying to sell you something so rude in my life. The pictures were not that great and the cost was baffling. Ok, back to the positives, the resort is very well maintained and the food was surprisingly better than what we had read in other reviews. Now to the not so positive... The room was not at all what was described. After being in the sand and sun all day one would just like to take a decent shower, well you would not be getting that at this resort. It is small and was the worst of my day each day at the resort. Housekeeping was very inconsistent one day we walked in and all of the pillow coverings were removed and a stack of pillows just laying in the room... odd! The rooms in general were outdated and air conditioning was ok at best (that is true for the entire resort). I will not be going back and would not recommend this resort or country to any one else. Now, to our flight experience... I am not sure what happened when booking tickets, but Cheap Caribbean made some mistake with the tickets and names on my husband's ticket that almost cost us an additional $200.00 and we barely made our flight.

“Resort was nice food was bad”

“Resort was nice food was bad” The resort was nice the grounds were beautiful. The staff overall was very nice, The food was not so good. It was barely cooked to the US requirements. This was a big issue for my family of 9. We had 3 rooms one had a ceiling leak they did move my family but this took time away from our vacation.Our keys keep demagnetizing if you put them next to your cell phone in this day and age everyone just about had one even if your just using it for pictures. My son had a $600 Bulova watch stolen the second night although I did not report until two days late because I was hoping that it was pushed in a luggage or something I did not want to believe that someone would take it and they did not even apologize in the USA we would have done things differently. I reported over a week ago and still they have done nothing and no email as they promised. All of the negative reviews you read are mostly true. Most of the staff is very nice. If you are privileged they really do nothing special the rooms are very nice overall. The Pure Bar on the beach Francisco was SUPER sweet visit him for sure and tip him he is a college student. The Pearl Bar is very nice however you can use the pools but have to pay for drinks they are not included even being Privileged. Word to the wise lock up EVERYTHING TRUST NO ONE!!!!

It would be nice to have more English speaking employees. The room was okay but the bathroom definitely needed renovating. The food was not all the greatest but one can pick through and survive the week. The restaurants were okay (a la carte) beaches and pool was okay. Overall had a good time.

Hotel Description

Catalonia Punta Cana: Noble Beach Prize Winner - The Bombest Bar

Leave your worries at home and head to Bavaro Beach, one of the Caribbean's hottest beaches. Catalonia Punta Cana is an all-inclusive, all-suite resort located on a huge stretch of heavenly Bavaro sand. This tropical resort is only 10 miles from Punta Cana Airport, so you can ditch the bags and start having fun in no time at all!

The fun starts with organized beach activities, or under a palm tree with a coco loco from the Beach Bar while the kids play. Switch it up and swim in the huge, free-form pool or clink colorful shots at the swim-up bar. When it's time to chow down, ten restaurants offer tons of variety. Families love the teppanyaki shows at Mikado, Rodeo Steak House has tenderloin to write home about, and no one can resist penne pesto at La Toscana. The once-a-week beach party is a hit with its live orchestra, and El Palmeral in the lobby serves classic martinis. If you're traveling without the kids, Cat's Disco Bar is for dancing 'til dawn.

Party hard at night and play hard by day with Catalonia Punta Cana all inclusive perks: make the most of the clear waters with snorkel gear, or hop aboard a catamaran for a cruise. Let the kids hunt starfish, while you check out the two adjacent golf courses, both designed by Alberto Sola. Cabeza de Toro Golf Club is nine holes, and for an 18-hole challenge, golfers tee off at Caribe Golf Club. If you want to test your luck, the resort's casino has slots and table gaming, or unwind with a massage or facial at Alegria Spa.

There's nothing like kicking back in a hammock after a long day, and the Junior Suites hook you up with a terrace or balcony. With a king for couples and two doubles for families, the Junior Suites are spacious and comfortable. Grab a soda from the mini bar and have a soak in the huge bathroom tub. You've earned it!
