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.

Catalonia Royal is an enclave at older and bigger Catalonia Grand Dominicus. It is located on the Dominicus Beach, one of the best on the Caribbean side of Hispaniola (45 min private ride from PUJ). The island shadows the area from forever blowing northeasterly trade winds, so that water is turquoise and smooth. Bring in your snorkeling gear to enjoy abundant tropical fish community along the artificial coral reef. But, beaches on the Caribbean side are not that wide as those on the Atlantic side. Expect rather crowded beach accommodation. I’d suggest declaring the beach as a non-smoking area. The dining experience at the Royal Plaza is overall pleasant with very good live entertainment. Spirit selection is reasonable. As to me, the included wine (we tried only red) is just at the edge of drinkable range (75 on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale). The Royal section doesn’t have its own buffet (lobby restaurant has buffet option for breakfast). Buffet at the main resort is not good and cries for major improvements. I’d also suggest exploring Terrace restaurant at the main resort. Don’t miss tropical fruit smoothie station just behind the Terrace restaurant. Resort people are very friendly. Some of them may not speak enough English, but I’d like to take the moment to thank all of them for making our vacation pleasant, smooth, and enjoyable.

Warm, Beautiful place to visit in January. Rooms are clean, the staff is great!

Just back from paradise - best beach, clean warm water, wonderful evening performance. Good food but stuff in restaurants need to be training.

Bello el hotel, sumamente limpio, la comida y el servicio excelente. Los tragos buenísimos y eso que nunca me gustan en los hoteles pero aquí super ricos! La noche hermosa con un saxofonista en concierto. Mi única observación es que al final a las 11 hay que cruzar al hotel de al lado del cual se tiene acceso y no es tan bueno y hacen como show de baile en un bar hasta las 1 que es mas o menos.Pero el hotel en sí es genial. 10/10.
