Excellent hotel for a relaxing holiday. Attentive staff good choice of restaurants and food selections. The Tapas restaurant was our favourite but the main restaurant always had daily specials and theme dinner evenings.Plenty of sun beds available both round the pool and on the beach which we prefered as there was always a sea breeze. Great beach bar which served Sushi at lunch time. The bedrooms are spacious and with large 4 poster beds. Good size bathrooms with walk in showers. This is the second time we have been to a Catalonia Hotel and would recommend this great adults only hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing switch off holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms near main building are nearer main restaurant and bars

My husband and I just returned from a week at catalonia royale bavarro where aside Edward at the piano bar every member of the staff showed us complete and utter disrespect. We were scoffed at every time we asked for a drink. We were forgotten about at dinner and then when we finally got the attention of our waiter we were told it was our fault for sitting outside. We tipped all of the staff but after a few days of being treated so disrespectfully we stopped showing that small token of gratitude until we were lucky enough to come upon Edward at the piano bar. By that time we were already annoyed and aggravated but Edwards positive attitude and delightful service quickly lightened the mood for a much needed taste of the vacation that we had expected. The grounds and the rooms were excellent and very well kept the major downfall to this resort was the service and it didn't help that the majority of the staff spoke very little english. I understand this is to be expected in a foreign country but when you are working on a resort it is important to be able to somewhat communicate with guests. We did take the snorkeling tour on the glass bottom boat which was well worth the money and we thoroughly enjoyed. We rented a car one day to venture off the resort over to macao beach which was very nice and my husband got a private surfing lesson that he very much enjoyed. There's a little restaurant there on the beach with really good food but be sure to get prices first because they will try to overcharge you. The country is beautiful but we will never return to this resort or any other catalonia resort.

First time out of country and it was AMAZING . The staff members were so helpful and so nice. I was pleased with room service and the amount of times they would clean daily. The restaurant that was amazing was Thalassa especially them changing their menu daily. So happy with our stay and service.

My husband and I were looking for a beachfront resort to unwind and just enjoy one another. This was the perfect location. We loved the serenity of the resort, all of the "love" photo ops and the fun and friendly staff.

Well, what can I say. This was our second visit in 2 years to this hotel. I emailed hotel to say it was our anniversary and when we arrived, we had a cake and champagne and balloons in our room. The food is excellent in all restaurants but have not tried steak house or mikado so cannot comment on those. We want to say a big thanks to the following people for their excellent service and customer service. Santa,Ronnie and genoveva pool bar, . Carlos pool bar amazing barman. Daniel piano bar. Frank in thallasa restaurant was amazing and so friendly.. Alba was amazing so friendly and excellent service every night in bar next to vegetarian restaurant. Jose was an amazing entertainer also. I could not have wished for a better holiday to be honest. Enjoyed beach barbecue plenty of dancing. Karaoke and seventies nights also. Also would like to say a big thanks to luis one of the cleaners. Always said hello to us and was such a lovely young man. Really enjoyable holiday, loved every minute. I could go on and on about this wonderful place but would need to write a book!

Room Tip: Prefer higher floor
