Beautiful resort. That’s about it

The grounds are gorgeous, so they have that going for them. The service is AWFUL everywhere except at the Yuca restaurant, and if you don’t speak Spanish, I would suggest looking elsewhere. A lot of the personnel don’t understand English, so it’s tough to communicate with anyone. There were a lot of peddlers, even very persistent hotel workers trying to get you to buy into this or that, and not just a one time meeting for a time share. Constantly haggling. For the amount we paid, I don’t think it was worth it.

Beautiful resort. That’s about it Beautiful resort. That’s about it

Best family vacation ever!!

Rooms were comfortable, issue with the AC in room, staff fixed it in very timely manner! Food was very good! Check in went quite slowly however it turned out they were just finding us 2 rooms next to each other! (This can be a problem when there is a language barrier). All in all we had a wonderful vacation! Don’t forget the sunscreen!!

Best family vacation ever!!

Catalonia Punta Cana

We received a really good deal on this. The place was pretty typical for an all inclusive. One thing we really disliked was the constant barrage of hotel employees trying to get us to go to a two hour presentation about the privilege resort options. Ivan lied to us about the amount of time required. So we left at the beginning of the presentation. Ivan then accossted us a few days later to try to make us feel guilty for walking out and how that hurt his job. If he had been honest with us up front about the amount of time, we wouldn't have wasted our time going. We received excellent service from the wait staff, especially Darling in the Rodeo restaurant, Raidon in the pool bar, Juan in the Italian restaurant, and Andrea, Edward, Yordanos and Michael in the main bar. The maid(s) who took care of our room were also very good. The Rodeo New York Strip and Japanese restaurants were better than expected. The coconut shrimp and jerk chicken at the Caribbean were excellent. The Italian restaurant food was mediocre. The buffet food was average, though the pasta bar was very good. Very clean resort. They have a large, beautiful beach with plenty of seating. We were always able to find a seat in the shade no matter what time we went.

Very disappointing

I booked this trip for myself and my daughters (ages 4 and 7) for 5 nights. I'd never been to an all-inclusive resort but was looking forward to the ease of what was promised. From the moment we arrived to the lobby until the moment we left, I struggled with how unhelpful the staff was, how shabby the resort was (once you stepped foot outside of the impressive lobby) and how massive the crowds were. It took over 1 hour of waiting when we checked in bc they didn't have a room ready. The room they gave us was in a building very furthest from the beach/pool. The room itself was tacky and smelled like mold. The ceiling in the bathroom was bowed and I found it was bc when the people used the bathroom above us, it leaked into our rooms. The food was atrocious....breakfast was ok. But if you want more than 1 cup of coffee, you better not be in a hurry bc the wait staff was never around. They were so disinterested in being helpful and rarely smiled. It was uncomfortable. Trying to get a drink by the pool was a joke. Seriously, it felt like I was doing them some huge favor and when they gave me my drink, they wouldn't even attempt to smile or acknowledge me. Strange. The only redeeming part of the trip was that the sunshine and beach was spectacular. I will NEVER go back to this resort.

What's to Love

All-inclusive beauty on the posh white sands in Punta Cana.

Noble Beach Prize Winner for "The Bomb-est Bar" (2015-2016). Ask for "The Sandy" at PURE on the beach.

Blue pools, blue ocean and lots of sunshine make working on your tan easy.

Sippin' on a fresh juice made from locally grown fruits from the juice bar on the beach.

 

What We'd Change

Like any huge resort, it's a bit of a walk from the beach to the lobby. Luckily, the beautiful landscaping makes the scenic stroll soothing.

 

Why You Should Go

Just a zippy twenty minutes from the airport. A welcome cocktail is waiting.

You can snag a one hour golf intro class. You might as well fine-tune your swing.

Privileged guests get an exclusive lounge, 24-hour room service, preferred access at restaurants & more.

Don't miss booking a beachside massage under a palapa. Ahhhh-somely relaxing.
