Stayed at another hotel, but we had half board at Catalina. Very tasteful and many various dishes. I would recommend it warmly. Everything was clean, and the staff were professional, helpful and Service minded.

A very cool location and laid back luxury resort to go exploring the beautiful surroundings... A copious and first class breakfast, a dedicated staff and the cosy swimming pool grounds are a plus. Our bedroom was clean but the wifi was capricious and the fridge not cold enough. Close to perfect resort.
