Not what i was expecting

My husband and I have been to this resort 10 years ago, it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, really. During these last 10 years we have been to a lot of resorts in DR and Jamaica, BUT never stop talking about Catalonia in Punta Cana, soooo we decided to go back. The beach and pool are amazing, the rooms amazing, clean and updated. They have done a lot of renovations and updates with the resort itself, they have increased the number of the umbrellas in the beach, which is a big plus. The check in process was very very quick, Angelo is amazing. We arrived there at 10:30 AM, at 11 we had the room, great. The population of the resort has doubled up, so I am sure the income for the owners has increased a lot. Unfortunately, i dont believe they have increased the salary of the employees, their service was not good. in the restaurant - lunch and dinner, you had to ask for beer or drink twice and more. Their answer was - I am busy, sorry. Every single day the same situation. Not only that, but, i never understood the line in the buffet. It is a buffet, why people have to stay in the line to go to their tables?????? And the tables were all unoccupied, but again we had to wait for the waitress to come and pick us up, it was weird, not good. the food varieties were not good, the only good food were the fries and the steak. They had a lot of salads and tropical fruits. what can i say, we were a little disappointed. Would we go back? Maybe, maybe not. long story short, they have renovated and updated the buildings but the food and service. Oh, forgot one thing - There are no straws in the restaurant or bar, none, whatsoever. you had to drink in the plastic cups that some one else had used before you. And dont forget that the cups are "washed" very well

Amazing trip

The resort was beautiful and the staff treated us like family. I had originally considered upgrading but I'm glad i didn't because we had everything we needed with the general package. Transportation to and from the airport was smoother than we expected. The pools and beaches were phenomenal.

Terrible Service

We picked this resort because we stayed at the same branch in Mexico and loved it. This resort ended up ruining all of our expectations. The pluses were that the beach was relatively clean and the bars were good. Our room was left dirty and something kept falling from the ceiling in the bathroom, looked like wood chips. The mini fridge did not work. I called 4 times and each time they said that they had already sent one and it was fixed. I purposefully called and stayed in the room to see if anyone would come, I called 2 hours later, and man said that someone was there to fix it while no one ever came into the room. At check out, we were waiting in line to give our cards back. A man barged in right up the desk to check out and although the receptionist saw that we were waiting and were up next, still attended to the man first. Service is extremely poor and I would not go back again for the money that we paid.

A Perfect Vacation

The Catolonia Punta Cana is a large resort. But after all the great food and drinks, a little walking helps. Do your self a favor and upgrade to Privileged, it is well worth the extra few bucks. Just having your own private beach area with private beach bar was fantastic. And the rooms were spacious and the King bed relaxing. The walk in shower and double sinks worked for us. There was even a pillow menu with 4 or 5 different pillows you could try if the one you have doesn't feel right. Now for the folks that made our vacation wonderful, At the beach PURE Bar our favorite bartenders, Jennifer, Alvin, and Carmen. They not only made great drinks and served them to our lounges but they were friendly, funny and engaging the whole week. At the poolside buffet Palapa keep and eye out for Maria Belen , Carolina, and Wendy. Thank you ladies. The beach was great, they cleaned the seaweed every morning before people showed up. I'm a certified diver but take advantage of the free lesson in the pool and schedule your 1st dive with the instructor and have him take you out to the ship wreck. The maid staff were fantastic, we never had to call to ask for something that may have been missed. All in all, we will return to this resort maybe sooner than later.

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.

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