Great updated room but other part of resort must be renewed, especially bar by the pool and pool bar, wich wasn't in function. Food is overage quality but limited offer, could be improved menus. Bar tender on beach bar was terrible, couldn't make margarita properly, put salt instead sugar on glass edge, cocktails were boring and sloppy made.

I just returned from a family wedding at Catalonia Royal. We had a great time, but it was in spite of Catalonia's staff. Our trip was the beginning of May 2021. First the good, the beach was spectacular, so was the wedding the wedding planner appeared to do a great job. Most other aspects of this trip were bad. This level of service was somewhere between a Super 8 and a Holiday Inn. No hand towels, mini bar not stocked with water unless specifically requested, one night nothing but a sheet on the bed. The buffets were mostly inedible, think middle school cafeteria bad, reservations for the restaurants were better, if you could get them, think Applebee's. The staff was surly and unhelpful. We had one of our 2 reservations go missing between the hotel and the travel agent. All the front desk would do was dial the phone for me to deal with the travel agent. It was a great way to start the vacation spending 2 hours on hold. The only person who wanted to pay attention to us was the Membership salesman. I eventually had to tell him to leave me alone we wouldn't be buying a membership to a hotel that couldn't get towels in the room.

My husband and I just returned from a stunning week at CRLR and could not have been happier with our stay and experience. Everything from the room, restaurants, service and the beach were absolutely amazing and we have found our new favorite resort in DR. The staff were all terrific, particularly Jenny (from the block ;) and we felt completely safe being the first time traveling during the pandemic. Covid protocols taken seriously without being annoying. Cannot wait to return!

My partner and I had an amazing time. Kudos to Jenny on reception and Miguel at the restaurant, they were very kind to us. Amazing service and efficient staff. I recommend to have snack available and drinks at the beach before dinner. Between 5-7 there’s nothing you can eat or drink nearby the beach and is an inconvenience since is the best time to take a dip while watching the sunset. Other than that, was a great experience.

Overall very good experience! Went with my husband on our honeymoon, it gone by so fast! The best resort we have ever been! Very clean, great greenery, nice beach and beach bar - with very pleasant people, making cocktails (Ronny, Kelvin, Jacobo). We would return instantly if we could, I will remember this place for ever.
