Customer service was excellent, clean hotel, breakfast was great. The hotel was a little isolated, few blocks from bars and restaurants so you are able to sleep but close enough to other activities.

The property could easily be a 5 star hotel. Maintenance issues need to be addressed for that to happen. We were informed that the hotel was closed for several months and they were just getting back up to speed. Im sure once they get a hold on these issues, this property will impress. The staff was absolutely wonderful. The security was impressive. Great value as far as price. Can"t wait to go back when they're back running at full speed. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5, and thats in its current condition.

Overall it wad good. Liked the ocean views. Breakfast was good and staff was amazing. Room could use some repairs/updates. I would stay there again

The location

It was a very nice hotel however the rooms and bathrooms are a little small. You can enjoy a nice ocean view only during the day because of the double glare/glazed windows with very thick glass. All the staff was friendly and the Buffett breakfast was good. Everyone tried to accommodate with speaking English and we order roomservice that was good as well. I enjoyed the pool for a short time before checkout. This was an overal good experience However I would have liked a bigger room.

Stress free

The property is a bit dated and our toilet and shower were difficult to use and in almost not working condition. (shower sprayed out at al angles and toilet required a specific way to make it flush and stop running). The staff on the other had was very friendly, very helpful and always there when I needed them. They always checked to see if I needed help if I looked lost or confused. Many spoke English though many did not.

We absolutely loved the location and the fact that the parking fee was reasonable.

i stay for 3 days at catalonia the staffs are very pleasant i was happy during my stay breakfast and the restaurant food was good .

I like everything about this hotel, staff very friendly and very helpful, near to nice restaurants,

Hotel varydated ,just very old Restaurant food very limited selection Drinks waterdown , no variations in cocktails Offer free parking, then charge for it at checkout

Lobby/restaurant/pool area it’s very nice and clean, the room really needs improvement, it smelled terrible

Beautiful view affordable stay, restaurant is delicious and affordable as well, no complaints.

I like the area and the view was great. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who's looking a best place to stay in DR.
