The property and rooms were beautiful, the staff were PHENOMENAL (so kind, helpful and hard working!), and the beach was perfect. So many good things to say, but everything was overshadowed by the oh-so-terrible food. I mean record-breaking-level terrible. Please Catalonia, work with a culinary director to overhaul your concept, portions, quality - particularly of the "Peruvian", "Asian" and dare I say "Italian' restaurant. Costco-pizza seems tastier and fresher. Imagine. I have never been hungry at an all-inclusive before. Hungry. At an all-inclusive. Whatever great effort was put into training staff needs to be placed into overhauling the menus.

The staff as far as housekeeping and front desk were very nice and attentive. The downside for staff was their inconsistent enforcement of covid policies. One day I'm told to have a shirt on to get a slice of pizza by the beach but there's already 3 shirtless people sitting there eating. Rules are fine and I have no problem following them but I need to know what they are and they need to be consistently enforced. Some pass by with no masks while others next to them are stopped and told to put masks on.

Overall everything was great

My stay at this resort was amazing. The staff was super attentive and respectful. I stayed at the adult side of the hotel and it was exactly what I wanted and expected. The resort is clean and beautiful. If your a beach person like me, this beach is for you! It’s clean, clear and calm. Whenever I visit la Romana again I will only be staying at this resort, based on what I saw on the beach strip, this was the best resort.

Very large anb beautiful property with lots of things to do, i had a blast.

Service and staff was great! Pools were nice. The beach is a very short paved walk from the hotel, and the beach is amazing. The food was just okay. Drinks were good. Would definitely stay here again.

Service was good. The property is very clean. The food was not bad.

Hotel si beautiful but the food OMG is terrible nothing to eat the flavor is bad

Food is not good except breakfast. Service is good.

We had a great time at Catalonia Royal! We went there for our honeymoon and we really loved our experience. The hotel is beautiful and the staff was very nice and helpful! The only thing that was concerning was that the hotel had an infestation of ants while we were there and we were constantly being bitten by them. The ants were all over the beach and even by the pool. But other than that we enjoyed everything about our stay! I would recommend this place to all my friends!

Food is sucked! Amazing beach, nice rooms. Smallest gym and worse food. Food is barely stay between 2 and 3 stars.

No entertainment Bad food Dirty facilities No disco Rough management

We had a great stay at this hotel overall. All of the staff were great. We hated to leave. Food and drinks are were great. Resort was beautiful. Beach was beautiful. We encountered two rude staff staff members during 7 day stay, not enough to spoil our trip by any means. You will love the Catalonia Royal

The resort is gorgeous and new. I did not like that the room did not have a full length mirrow which made getting ready uncomfortable (had to climb on a bench to use mirror over bed). Some room layouts have a full length mirrow but our superior room did not. The bathroom door and shower is made of frosted glass. The staff was a group of hardworking people. A few delivered excellent service but the majority were very slow to act or forgetful (ex. several minutes waiting for ketchup and getting only 1 packet of ketchup or asking 3 different people before getting eventually getting napkins or asking for a side of sauce and it never coming to name a few). Nobody was rude but only a few stood out for being warm and service oriented. The food was ok all around. You won’t go hungry but you don’t always get what you expect. The beach is clean and the water is blue!

Overall the resort is very good. The entertainment at night was horrible. Food was good. Hotel was very clean. The staff was very friendly.

The hotel is new and overall nice and clean. Few minutes to the beach with warm turquoise water. Restaurants would be much better (slow service,unsavory food) Don't waste your time and go straight to the buffet (you have access to all "Catalonia Gran Dominicus" facilities. Entertainment and shows are poor. Special thanks to Cilena, Wandys,Ruddy,Raisa and couple more guys, who make your vacation pleasant. Generally resort is okey, but one nuisance happened in my room. Valentine's day gift for my wife -sterling silver earing -disappeared from the table. I've reported to the lobby crew, got my room searched by security (I was feeling, like I'm criminal at that time), but result is zero. So just keep your valuable in the safe. Afterward- Despite this nuisance, vacation was great . I wish you enjoy your staying in this resort. Thanks.

Dear Jonathan, Thank you very much for letting us know about your experience and we are sorry to read your comments. It's important to clarify that from the moment of check-in the guest is informed that they must use their mask and that they are offered to acquisition it. Likewise, we have communications and informative signs reminding us of the use of the mask in all our areas. We apologize if the behavior of some guests was not in accordance with our protocols. Also, the use of the mask is required to all our collaborators as part of the measures, that we carry out of our Clean and Safe Protocol to guarantee the safety of our guests and entire team. Compliance with the planned measures was endorsed by the Ministry of Tourism and Public Health in the Dominican Republic, after complying with 100% of our facilities and facilities with what is required in the general protocol of tourist activities before COVID-19. We are an active member of the HS CONSULTING Company. Which is an English company that watches over health and hygiene and who constantly monitors all aspects related to health and hygiene standards within our hotel to ensure our guests.
