This was my second vacation at the Catalonia Bavaro Beach, casino and Golf Resort and I was even more impressed then the last time. My favorite hangout area is the Poolside bar and I was pleasantly surprised to see it had undergone renovations and looks terrific. Service there by Raidon and Samuel is excellent. They are a happy and energetic...

We stayed at this resort for two weeks from Feb 4th-18th. I had read many of he reviews and was a little worried. I have been to many places and different countries and as usual I shouldn't have worried!!!! After reading some bad reviews my thoughts are; As in Canada bugs do show up in rooms-other guests can be rude-things...

My husband and I just spent 7 wonderful days here and were absolutely amazed by this resort. The food was amazing at both buffets as well as the a la carte restaurants, we didn't have a single complaint food wise. The entire resort was kept very clean, always someone cleaning up empty glasses by the pool or at the beach...

The hotel facilities were great. The rooms were good, tidy and clean and all the hotel areas were well taken care of (some of them were in the process of renovation). We thought the buffet was really repetitive although the food was good. The service was really bad. For more than once we ended our meal without ever having a...

The Catalonia Bavaro is the adults only portion while the Royal Catalonia Bavaro is the place that is child friendly. We stayed at the adults only. It's a great value and we really thawed out from our New England weather (read, extended cold, gray, cloudy). The beach is pretty good. The restaurant by the beach was our favorite and probably...

Stayed for 5 nights. Good...the grounds were beautiful. The beach was nice. Water was rocky on the floor when getting into the water. There is a sandbar to walk out to, but the trip out after you swim over the rocks was a very course sand that hurts your feet. Jose in the main buffet was very most helpful and...

We started our day on the north end of the beach looking at the beautiful blue water and the soft sand beach. Then we learned, the hard way, at 1100 every morning. They bring a PA system to the beach and play loud techno music for the better part of an hour for water aerobics. Well, we moved to the...

Dear fellow traveller! We have stayed in many all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Dominican. We chose the Catalonia for this trip because of the quaint look of the grounds, the golf, the beach area and the variety restaurants! We were four adults travelling together and figured that there would be something for everyone here! The resort IS beautiful. The...

This place was beautiful. My only complaint is that the service is lacking so much! We never would get our towels in our bathroom... we had to go into the storage closets to get them ourselves!

Most of the staff were friendly. A bit of a hit or miss. They were either very friendly or quite grungy. Food preparation team requires food safety training.
