Clean facilities, nice rooms, overall good food. Staff was excellent, restaurants were great. The buffets were ok, though some items were not great (scrambled eggs and ketchup). Loved how they are right on the beach and everything is well maintained. It was easy to arrange day trips off the resort, and everyone was very helpful. I would go back in a heartbeat. Don't shop at minimarket fantasy! overcharged us and would absolutely not refund our money! Called security on us when they were tired of us asking questions. They are the first shop by the marina. Now that I know the ins and outs of this resort, our next stay is bound to be much more enjoyable.

I love catalonia

Amazing holidays, amazing beach, amazing pools... the entertainment stays with all the stars. They are the best! We point out Ivan. A great dancer that was 5* with us the entire time 🙂 Also a big thank you to Javier, Armando e Omar. They always had a smile and a lot of energy. Thanks to them for taking us out of the sun bed 🙂 they always cared about us as they knew I was sick. Room service is great. Buffets are great with a lot of choices and the staff very kind. We tried the restaurants but we didn't like the Mexican, was really bland. I got sick during my holidays and one night at 1pm we called the reception to get some help regarding having a doctor to attend the room. Came a doctor that after making some questions and seeing that I was in pain said I needed to go to the hospital to see what I really had. He made us pay 145 dollars for 5 min. After he said he was going to call for an ambulance, he said he would be waiting outside. when we went out the room he was gone. So the ambulance came and we had to explain everything because the doctor wasn't there and didn't explained what happened. The ambulance took us to a private hospital (without asking us). So when we arrived in the hospital they asked 3000 dollars just to see me (like the doctor did) and the ambulance asked for 500 dollars (for the 15 min). So we explained that should be a joke because all that money for nothing it's ridiculous. So we didn't pay any of that I called the hotel to see if somebody could catch us. No. we asked for a taxi and was the taxi driver that helped us and took us to a public hospital. Thank god. So in the end there was like a business between the doctor from the hotel, the ambulance and the hospital. They don't really care about the clients they just care about their wallets. We passed all the information to the guest relations and we are waiting until now for a response. So if the hotel would like to be better it needs to change the medical service that provides to guests. if the doctor have asked for the money with a valid reason we would understand but just to say I needed to go to hospital it's ridiculous. We just payed him because we couldn't think at that moment. I was in real pain and my boyfriend was terrified to see me like that.
