The Suite was brilliant, the personnal real friendly and the whole atmosphere was fantastic. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with Oceanview, food and drinks top quality, everybody in the Hotelzimmer made us fehl like we are very special. We will definitly come back!

Nice beach and property but...

The check in was wonderful, the room was brand new, could not be better. the beach and calm clear ocean were fantastic. This was the main reason we booked. We have stayed at several Catalonia resorts in the past, so we were expecting this to be a resort full of europeans. So the constant frowns (don't understand why folks on vacation are so miserable) and the lack of politeness was anticipated. What we were surprised at was the restaurant staff, and the terrace staff (other than the bartenders). they did not seem to enjoy their work at all, and at times completely ignored us. How did they know we were Americans ? I won't forget walking up the steps to breakfast buffet, and having the hostess pick up the hand sanitizer, and walk right past us to the couple behind us. As though we did not exist. But again, we were there for the beach, and the relaxation which was partially there. the beach was wonderful, the water beautiful. But relaxing ? Not possible. there was construction from 07:00 until23:00 every day. No way to avoid the noise. at times we were wearing ear plugs just to have somewhat of quiet time. I wish they would have advertised the fact that there would be wet saws, and hammers going all day and night :-) in fact the couple in the room next to us had complained when they arrived and received some type of compensation. that should tell you how annoying the noise was. so before you book, find out when the construction will be complete..

Many times to this resort & we love it. Bartenders are great & very accommodating. Concierge team is the Best.

We only book Privilege Room Category. The staff are always amazing & will bend over backwards to accommodate you. We have been there quite a few times & love it. Miss the employees after we leave. Thank you Mrs. Ramirez, Braulio, Nestor, Sophie, Neurus, Alexis, and everybody else for the great memories.!!!See you next year!!!

Wonderful family vacation with a 3-year old

We have truly enjoyed Catalonia Hotel and kids-oriented activities and facilities (playground, mini-disco with Mr.Turtle, mini-buffet and separate dining area, a play room with arts and crafts, wonderful kids pool, calm waters and golden sand). Our kid was busy and happy all day long. We look forward to coming back!

Beautiful resort with a beautiful beach... but... unless you upgrade to privileged your stay definitely won't be as comfortable or relaxing. With privileged you receive the new rooms close to the pool and beach which are clean and spacious and have working ac units and up to date washrooms. Plus access to beach huts and use of the terrace on the beach for a la cart meals and drinks. Plus other benefits as well. The staff is friendly and accommodating, wi fi is spotty at best and the food leaves a lot to be desired. They need to work on that. But very clean and spacious buffet area which is a definite plus ☺️The resort also has no place to get coffee or snacks after 2am till 7 am... hoping that changes. When like me you're up at 4:30/5 am and have to wait 2 hours for coffee and a snack it becomes a problem. Last but not least, this resort caters to Europeans. Luckily I'm fluent in Italian because barely anyone speaks English. Everything is Spanish, Italian, some French, and very little English. So be prepared 😁
