We had a great stay here! Beautiful pools and beach. We did the Privileged package and we felt it was worth it. Our room was beautiful with a great view and because we were Privileged guests we got our own area on the beach so we had no trouble finding chairs. Moses and Erik (the entertainment team) were amazing and we had a blast doing activities with them. Our only complaints were that there are people constantly trying to sell you things whether it be peddlers on the beach or hotel staff talking up the Exclusive Club; this was slightly annoying. Drinks were a little weak but very tasty and the food was pretty good with a great variety.

The kindness of employees was so awsome! Everything was beyond my expectations. The only thing that I might point is that at night, the theater, the pool activities end early... but everything, again, was amazing!! Thank you Catalonia... we'll be back with more people... we're already planning in group.
