Great Resort!

This was our second time to stay in Punta Cana. I would say that this resort was better than my last one. There was great food and great service. There were more restaurants in the other resorts connected to this one (which you can go to for free) Everyone was very friendly and spoke English pretty well. If you can speak Spanish, that's always a plus! There were a few stray animals around, this should not need to be said, but DO NOT PET THE STRAY ANIMALS. Someone was bit and needed a tetanus shot and 4 rabies shots. I started getting sick there, but there was a drug store on site! The beach was amazing as there were chairs already laid out and there are palm trees to keep shade. The room was a little dated and the AC didn't work very well. Overall, I would go back again and it was a great vacation!

Sleepy Vacation

This resort is perfect for anyone who is looking for total relaxation and complete quiet. If you are looking for something with a little more nightlife and activities going on, then this is NOT the place for you. It is a wonderful place and completely laid back which is awesome if that is what you are looking for. Another huge thing to consider is that the resort is in the Atlantic Ocean. That means dark water and sea grass (which the staff did an amazing job taking up everyday!). If you are looking for the clear Caribbean clear blue waters, this is not the beach for you.

A few hiccups, but overall amazing!

Overall, my boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Catalonia. Everything ran smooth, from flight to being picked up by transport at the airport and brought right to the hotel lobby door. Upon arrival, we were told one of the villas on the adult only side was down, and we'd be put in a room on the family side, but still have access to the adult side. While this wasn't a major inconvenience, it did cause some minor hiccups in our trip (everything from shopping to dinner is based on room number, so we did face some trouble when trying to use things on the adult side, as our room number was from the family side.) However, after usually calling and double checking with the front desk, we were never denied anything. Overall, the resort was beautiful, the food was amazing (besides the buffets which were average, as buffets usually are), and the staff did everything to make sure we were having the time of our lives. We would absolutely return, and know that if our room had been on the correct side, we would give Catalonia Royal an 11/10!

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive Dominican dream escape.

Chillaxing at the infinity pool with shaded, cushy loungers & hammocks on the beach.

The self-serve Bloody Marys and mimosas at breakfast.

Escaping via the spa: massages by the sea, Turkish baths and sauna.


What We'd Change

Casino Punta Cana closes at midnight, but the resort's club, Cats, and the bar by the pool are both open late for night owls.


Why You Should Go

It's 20 miles from the Punta Cana airport. Vacay cocktails will appear pronto.

Two gorgeous golf courses designed by Alberto Sola are near.

If you're up for meeting up with Lady Luck, there's a casino onsite.

Soana Island is an aahmazing excursion and is relatively near. So worth it.
