It’s a small resort with good pool and awesome sandy beach with beautiful water. We go there for sandy beach and blue Caribbean water. Prestige rooms are renovated and a bit better than regular rooms. Entertainment team is great and teens and adults participate in all activities. Most European tourists don’t tip. An average salary in DR is about $200 a month. An extra couple dollars here and there will give your personal attention and better service. Tip well and help workers and their families.

Had to upgrade to the Royal Catalona to be able to get my type of facility and services.

The property has the best beach in La Romana and clear water and no sea weeds and no coral rocks on the bottom

Excellent service

The gardens and the beach area beautiful.

La comida no es variada y de muy poca calidad, la reserva de los restaurantes es pesima, nos enfermamos seriamente del estomago en dos ocasiones, el servicio algunos muy serviciales pero otros muy mala actitud. Lo mejor del resort la playa sin dudas, despues de visitar otros Catalonias mis expectativas eran mucho mas grandes y no fueron cumplidas en lo mas minimo, definitivamente creo que no volveriamos.

The beach and pool were great. In the other hand the service and food were horrible. no available snacks besides chips during down time. The food choices were poor at the buffet. when we arrived at the hotel they did not have any restaurants reservations available for two days straight. They said they only had for members trying to force us to buy some kind of membership to upgrade.

I travel a lot with and without my family. I’m from America and very open minded. This resort looks great with good ratings and the place is well maintained visually. Unfortunately prepare yourself for a nightmare check in process with no type of order. After Check in (took over an hour) we received our room which had no ac so they had to change it after we already unpacked. The food is very limited and between 4pm and 6:30pm you can only get cold burgers, Fries , and pizza. They only and I repeat only play Spanish music instead of a Variety of music. No one other than the front desk staff spoke English. When I say no one spoke English, I mean no one spoke English. You are pretty much playing a guessing game when asking for something. Overall the people are nice. Food is okay, quality of the drinks are terrible and if you don’t smoke you now do because people are smoking and doing hooka by the pool with kids right next to them.

This resort is clean, modern and the staff is pleasant.The best beach white sand and little to NO waves. One of the best beaches in the country. The resort overall is very peaceful and kid friendly.

Everything was amazing. The food was great. The pool was extremely beautiful.

We went on the off season so it wasnt as warm & wasn't as packed but its alright

Everything was great! Everyone were very friendly and helpful all the time, property and rooms were very clean. Big shoutout to Marcos and Ramon at the restaurant by the beach, those 2 guys always went the extra mile to make sure Everything was great. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very family friendly and kid oriented resort. Everything is conviently located. This was my 2nd stay and i recommend you pay a bit extra for what they call a COMFORT room much better. I recommend everyone does this. Their standard rooms are outdated and poorly maintained. SO save yourself the aggravation and upgrade to the COMFORT room.

Estimado huésped, En primer lugar, permítame agradecerle su tiempo y compartir su reseña. Para nosotros es muy importante porque nos ayuda a conocer la experiencia real del huésped. Lamentamos leer la experiencia que ha tenido con nosotros, nos gustaría ofrecer mis más sinceras disculpas. Nuestro equipo de Atención al Huésped está siempre disponible para brindar la mayor asistencia a nuestros huéspedes, lamentamos que no haya tenido la confianza para acercarse a nosotros y expresar cómo se sintió, hubiera sido un placer atenderlo como se merece. En cuanto a la oferta culinaria, somos un miembro activo de la empresa HS CONSULTING, que es una empresa inglesa que vela por la salud y la higiene y monitorea constantemente todos los aspectos relacionados con los estándares de salud e higiene dentro de nuestro hotel para asegurar a nuestros huéspedes. Sin duda, los informes que nos envía HS Consulting demuestran que operamos con altos estándares de calidad e higiene. Así lo corrobora la certificación COVID-19 Prevención Salud y Seguridad 2020, por cumplir con los estándares globales establecidos, otorgada recientemente por dicha empresa. Es muy difícil determinar el factor que pudo haber originado la enfermedad estomacal ya que puede estar relacionado con una combinación de diferentes factores como el cambio de clima, la exposición excesiva al sol, la ingestión de nuevos condimentos o simplemente la comida cocinada de manera diferente a la del regreso a casa. En conclusión, el hotel no se hace responsable de una enfermedad cuyo origen no se pueda determinar claramente y que podría haberse originado antes de su llegada a nuestro resort o debido a factores fuera de nuestro control. Estimado huésped, lamentamos mucho que sus vacaciones hayan terminado de esta manera. Revisaremos sus observaciones, para evitar una experiencia similar para futuros huéspedes. Muchas gracias por haberse quedado con nosotros y realmente esperamos que nos brinde la oportunidad de recibirlo nuevamente y mostrarle todos los cambios positivos que podemos hacer. Saludos, Social Media Catalonia La Romana
