We just got back from our family vacation at Catalonia Royal La Romana (adults only). My family of 6 stayed here for 11 days. I sent an e-mail in advance to reserve 3 rooms for us and after a couple of days, I got a reply that my reservation was confirmed and that the front desk had gladly taken note of my rooms request. We got what we were asking for. Thank you, Carmen Parra, for your help and care!!! :) Check in/out was quick, easy and pleasant with welcome drinks. The front desk staff was very friendly. This was our 6th trip to Catalonia chain and 1st time in this resort. We got rooms with a swim-up view with a sign on entry door “Welcome Back” and "Happy Anniversary", a bottle of champagne and a fruit plate. It was so cute! On the first day, we had some issues in the room but just ONE call to the front deck with a simple word PLEASE resulted in immediate attention and response. The rooms were spacious, clean and the bed was so comfortable. A/C worked great. The bathroom is so luxurious, has enough space for everything. Housekeeping was great - changing the towels twice a day and cleaning rooms before lunch. Our maid was so nice and always smile. The hotel itself is small and gorgeous with well-kept grounds and very clean. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Beach area has fresh showers/spots to wash away sand from your feet! The food was good although it can get a little repetitive, nobody was hungry. Drinks at the bar were good and you could ask for as little or as much alcohol in your drinks as you wanted. The staff work very hard and are always smiling. Especially thanks to the entertainment guy Dimas. Most of them are multilingual so it was easy to communicate. Overall: As a member of Trip Advisor I was concerned as to some of the recent reviews of the hotel, but I am pleased to report: PLEASE DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!! We had no problems with regard to language - English was always understood. We enjoyed our family vacation. It was relaxing and fun. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all! Book it and have fun!:)

Stunning hotel and beach, useless food.

The hotel was beautiful, the beach was perfect! Clear water with fish to watch at the end of the swimming area. It has been recently been renovated to a very high standard. Overall considering the price of the stay we were happy but... On check in we had not pre booked. We asked if any rooms were available. The manager (Carmen) told the receptionist there were not. I explained the rooms were still being shown as available on booking.com. I asked if I could try booking.com and what would happen if it worked. The receptionist said I could try but it would not work. It worked! So I waited back at reception. Once Carmen the manager found out I had booked a room she seemed very angry and said that my booking a room would mean that somebody else that had booked a room would now have nowhere to stay! I said “I don’t have to take it if it’s a problem”. Carmen says: “no I have to call booking.com now and you will be waiting hours”. The whole situation was uncomfortable and not at all welcoming. If we had not been so tired we would have simply walked out as her aggression and rudeness really made us not want to spend our money at this hotel. Still we got the room after a few more sarcastic comments. We then began to relax. That night we went for dinner at “Tow cat” one of the many a la carte restaurant available. Fantastically decorated and with an interesting menu we were excited. I ordered an Asian style soup to start. This came de constructed. A few noodles and tofu in a bowl followed by the waiter bringing a jug of liquid. He pours it over the noodles. Next he has to start shaking it to get some bits of chicken out. Ok this is entertaining, I’m having fun. Unfortunately when I try the soup it literally tastes like Luke warm salty water. Next I notice other guest looking and giggling. Later I find out they have had the same started and everyone thinks it’s something of a joke. Unfortunately this set the tone for all of the food at the resort. It looks great, served in a stunning setting but often it has no taste or is badly cooked/ re heated. We were at the sister hotel next door to this one with access to all the resteraunts for 2 weeks. In this time we probably had 2 fairly good meals and we think it could be to do with the chefs that happen to be cooking at the time. One night at the Italian we had chicken that was so dry and over cooked with over cooked vegetables that had no colour but at lunch we had pizza that was reasonably good. As for drinks you have access to some good drinks but the frozen drink machines should be avoided. Too much shugar and an after taste of soap. I guess it’s the cheap liquid they use. Sometimes service was very slow but generally it was ok as being on holiday we were not in a rush. We walked out once as we waited 50 mins for a desert menu having asked 3 times while the staff polished cutlery. Essentially I’m going into detail because I’m frustrated. Being a business owner in the U.K. I understand how hard it is to get everything perfect. It’s just such a shame. They have a perfect location, perfect hotel, perfect restaurant, reasonable service, the food just doesn’t match! I would have rathered pay more and enjoyed eating! I hope these comments help.

We travelled July 20th until Aug 3 2018, I was headed to the Catalonia Golf and Casino resort when I got there they told me I was upgraded. It was unbelievable. We ended up at the Catalonia Royal in la Romana, the hotel is adults only and only a year and a half old. We arrived and the staff every single one of them from Gino to Johnathan to Cleudyn at the front desk , all helping us for even the slightest little thing. The food, the restaurants the people I have not one complaint. The staff goes out of their way to please us.Singing the good morning song, as we came up the stairs for breakfast The service was impeccable . The rooms were very clean and up to date I would leave again tomorrow I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to feel pampered and special....

I recently spent a couple of days with my family at the Catalonia Royal and it went phenomenal. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed into the Catalonia family. The food, beverages, and hospitality were the best I have experienced in my years of traveling. Sirfedery, Juan Carlos, and the entire Exclusive Travel Club were impecable. My mom and I actually became members of the club so that we could stay at all the Catalonia resorts around the world. If you are looking for a relaxing, beyond comfortable resort that has the top of the line restaurants and beverages you have found the right place! It was also great to have all access to the family oriented Catalonia resort a short 7 minute walk from the Royal. I can’t wait to go back!
