We stayed at the Catalonia Royal in July and had a fabulous time!
Check-in was fast and easy. Our room wasn't ready yet so we headed to the lobby bar. We spent quite a bit of time at this bar during our stay because it...More
We stayed at the Catalonia Royal for 2 weeks from 17th July. Prior to our trip I read several reviews but found that most were very short and lacking detail. Therefore this is a very lengthy review which hopefully will provide some detailed and helpful...More
This hotel is true definition of paradise. Small and quite hotel. 5 restaurants with different type of cuisine. Asian is my favourite one. Big swimming pool, and huge private beach. Beautiful view. Just paradise.
A/C no working in the rooms, 1 of two pools were in maintenance the other was in service but half solárium available.
Do not go to the buffet there is a big a lane just to enter and food was not cook well

Honestly you hardly get anything for your money. We were upgraded half way through our holiday because there was an issue with our air con so can compare both. The room is slightly different, (there's a white drape on the bed, the bathroom is open plan but has exactly the same amenities and the room is about a foot in length more but you loose this from the balcony) aside from that the rooms are identical. All amenities in the room are the same, although I would say the wifi was better in the privilege room. You get 10% off spa treatments. There's supposedly a 'preferential seating' in the sea blue restaurant but it made no difference at all when we were there. There are no different areas anywhere on the Royal side for privilege guests. There's a privilege beach bar at the opposite end of the Catalonia Bavaro resort but the 'upgraded' drinks that are advertised here are exactly the same as what's available at the Royal side anyway. The privilege section of the beach is on the family side with children. There's a privilege section at the buffet at the Catalonia Bavaro but honestly the buffet isn't great so I'd be surprised if you end up eating there much. You are also meant to get a late check out room but when flying back to the UK, flights usually leave in the afternoon so it isn't something you would make use of.
Personally I don't think it's worth it but it's up to you if these 'extras' are enough to justify the cost.
