The hotel is nice and clean, the room was great. The staff was excellent, polite and helpfull except for the towel booth. The restaurants on the Royal side were great, we specially liked the Tapas restaurant. The Italian we tried on the regular Catalonia was more than ordinary and the Japanese was ok. The pools were a little small but... More

We always prefer the smaller 'adult' resort and this was no exception. We had upgraded room and the concierge staff were friendly and helpful. The resort layout is lovely, nice pools and beach. Food was mostly very good and the service was above average.

Another enjoyable stay at the new and improved Royal Catalonia. The staff is the reason there are so many returning couples. They go out of their way to make sure you are looked after. The incessant rain was the only negative thing I can say and of course that is nobody's fault

Amazing place! Only downside was being pitched timeshares by aggressive salesmen every time we went to eat breakfast. The pools were fantastic and it was so nice and quiet on the adult-only "royal" side.

Have just returned from our sixth visit to our home away from home. My husband and I picked this resort because it is smaller but with the option to visit the sister resort for more activities if we desired. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful grounds, but mostly the staff. We are well received at reception and our... More
