I take a yearly vacation to the beach every September and usually go to Mexico. I have been to the Catalonia Royal Tulum three times and I love it. The beach at the Catalonia Royal Punta Cana isn't as nice. The water is clear, but since it's the Atlantic, it's more green than blue and not as pretty. It's also very shallow and the waves break half a mile out or so.
The resort itself was small and nicely kept. Our room was just fine, as we don't spend a lot of time in the room anyway. But it was clean and the bed was comfortable. I will say, the air conditioner worked very well and most mornings I was freezing when I got up.
The bartenders at the beach bar are very fun and always smiling and laughing (and can make a good rum drink). They do not have very good alcohol selection and no real "top shelf" liquor to speak of. Just stick with coco loco, you can't go wrong. The coffee at the coffee bar however is to die for.
The food was average. Like I said, I enjoy the Catalonia in Tulum better and the food and alcohol in Tulum is above average, with more selection.
Overall, this was a decent place for the price, but I won't be returning, as it looks like I will stick to the blue waters of the Carribean next year.
