Go for the privilege upgrade. Totally worth it for the no kid zone and Terrace bar only for privilege guests. We stayed in the honeymoon suite. It was clean. The Yuca restaurant was the best theme restaurant in our opinion with carribean cuisine. Our only issue was our room was next to other resort and it was so loud until 1030-11 which only affyected us our furst day as weary travelers.
Amazing experience on my second time there, first time I went was October of 2016. Beautiful beach, Id say in the top 3 that I've been to, prob one of the best in DR.. Great service, and lovely staff.... shout out to Julio, and the best of the best Ramon. amazing kind hearted individual. Will continue to come here. As well as Catalonia Playa Maroma in Mexico.... two of the best resorts, and beaches I've ever been to. Anyone looking for beautiful waters, with no rocks, and powdery sand, combined with excellent staff great food and clean resort, this is your place. Avoid those mega resorts that give you nothing but luxury and don't let you actually enjoy what you came for... Great job Catalonia.
We visit this resort during hurricane Maria, so it was some experience. We came in 10.20.2017 right before wind and rain start. So here is my opinion.Pro: nice old beautiful territory, very compact, I think around 300 rooms. Small 2 floors houses. Rooms average size with very comfortable mattresses. We ask for two beds and got them without any delay. A little bit strange to have a shower and sink part without a door. For us, it was OK, for people with kids I don't think so. The buffet is big and good ventilated. Service good, food average. Waiters very friendly and speak the little bit English. 4 restaurants a la card, nice, average. Very convenient big "plaza" in the middle of the resort near the pool. They got a bar and good coffee all the time. The pool is wonderful. Beach is beautiful, a lot of shadow and sun spots for everyone's taste.Now the con: hurricane destroys half of the beach near the sealine, so you can go to the water is only part of the shore.I recommend paying more for preferred rooms they have a regular bathroom and nice beach
We came down for our honeymoon.. we were very much looking forward to a relaxing week and we got just that. We were unable to get a few perks of our upgrade (the Honeymoon room upgrade) like the photo, tshirt, and the nice dinner at the Tapas restaurant because we were going to do that on our last day and the resort flooded.
We just got home and there were some huge negatives1. $250 usd was taken out of my girlfriend's purse. It was suggested we put it in the safe but the purse was hidden inside a backpack in our room and it was taken out of the backpack without money. We thought being at a four star resort we should have no worries about theft and were just too excited to enjoy our vacation, after that incident we felt unsafe. There was no recourse after filing a report and the staff/security seemed like they could care less. 2. When we booked we paid for a privileged room and were placed in a room that lacked basic necessities. No hot shower water, the a/c was broken the first night, and the telephone did not work for the duration of our trip. Kind of funny that they offered room service and a special number for privilege concierge but we couldn't call to anything. I had to take a 6 minute walk to reception from villa la romana (the building where our room was) anytime we had an issue. I reported the telephone problem about 2 times a day but it could never be fixed. The lack of basic necessities is unacceptable being even a normal hotel could provide these services 3. We are from the United States and there was a big language barrier with the staff. You could get by but it was hard to understand or hold a conversation with most staff members. The bartenders and entertainment people were nice (same entertainment every day, same john legend song playing by the pool), but the hotel reception were extremely unhelpful and rude when you had any issuesI would not recommend catalonia and would suggest another resort if going to the Dominican. We still tried to make the best of our trip and enjoy the gorgeous beach and pool
