We stayed here in Nov 2005 and after changing from another resort after seeing it on holidays from hell we were worried when we read some of the reviews so I will try and give an honest opinion.

Catalonia was my first carribian experience and was great. Why travel out of the country if you do not want a foreign experience. Food was good.

We arrived at the Catalonia with two other couples for a seven night stay. Upon arrival I asked the Apple Rep at the airport to call ahead to see if there were any upgrades available.
