    No AC!!!

    We are currently at the hotel, the AC in our room last night did not work, the room did not cool below 27 C (80 F). We called for service about 3am, the guy came tried to fix it, couldn’t, said he would be back in 20 min, he never showed back up. We toughed it out for the night and called again first thing this morning. When we called they told us “we fixed it last night” after explaining it was not fixed they agreed to send someone out to “fix it”. We made multiple calls today letting the front desk know it was still not fixed, don’t get me wrong the maintenance guys spent hours trying to fix it, so tonight WE asked to change rooms. They weren’t going to do ANYTHING about it but continue to send people to try to fix it. After a day of vacation wasted constantly checking to see if the AC was fixed, packing up our luggage, moving rooms and unpacking again we asked for some sort of compensation, the first lady we spoke to told us there was nothing they could do and if we wanted to give them a bad review then do it! We called back and spoke to a “manager” who told us they compensated us already by giving us a room with AC for tonight! Are you kidding me?????? Then told us we would have to meet with him tomorrow because he had to talk to his manager first before he could do anything for us. Oh and I forgot to mention we went from a room with a great view to a room with absolutely no view. As of right now I would never stay at another Catalonia resort, there are way too many places that have excellent customer service and we are regretting giving them a chance.

    Not what I expected

    Not a great resort, people are just doing there job, must be a member to receive good service. They are very focused on selling you membership/timeshare. Resort can really be an asset if they would could work on landscape. Everything was too far. not very friendly. Would not stay at any of these resorts.

    okay trip!

    The trip was fun.... but some of the stuff were rude and didnt want to accommodate for a large group. The waiters were rude and didnt want to resolve some issues. But the bar staff was amazing. Narsario was the best he makes the best drinks and he is super fun. Gave me many different drinks to try. He made my sister birthday special. Thank you Narsario!!
