This was me and my boyfriend's first trip away together, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place! Our villa was right across from the pool and right next to the beach. The grounds were absolutely beautiful! The landscaping was amazing. The rooms were spacious and were always clean. They do an amazing job at Catalonia. I've never seen...

We paid our first visit to Punta Cana in mid May. Excellent weather, it was sunny with no rain for all 7 days of our stay. Resort is very close to the airport, only a 15mins ride. The best attraction of this resort is the long, white powdery sandy beach with crystal-clear shallow water. Resort condition, facilities, food and cleanliness...

My son and I had an excellent stay at Catalonia during March break. The resort itself is large, but very clean. Pools of water and small bridges remind of Venice and accommodations are more than decent: spacious rooms, a bathtub, hammocks either on a balcony or private patio. If you are fussy about food or service, you will never worry...

Our “Grand Caribe” Restaurant is currently in the process of being upgraded by enclosing the main buffet area, with this in place we will not be having flies or birds in the restaurant. We usually do not get rave reviews for our cuisine, but if a guest have a certain request, we would love to hear it while they are...
