It was a last minute decision to get away and I took a chance and it was a great decision. The resort was clean and beautifully maintained. It wasn't super huge so it made it very easy to get around with very little effort. The food was plentiful and excellently prepared. A nice touch was the chef would occasionally make...

People were very nice and service was great. Rooms and resort were clean. However, being in the privileged section was 100% worth it. The separate access to the beach, higher end rooms, and exclusive areas in the restaurants were worth the upgrade. Went there with 10 other friends for college spring break. There were many college students but also families...

We booked at Catalonia as first time visitors to Punta Cana because we heard of the beautiful beaches. If you are seeking a gorgeous Punta Cana beach, you will not find it here at Catalonia Bavaro! Lots and lots of areas with seaweed and many rocky coral patches. Sand is very coarse. There is a sand bar further out but...

First-time to Dominican republic, airport was awful, took 2 hours of snaking in a line to pay the 10 $ for entry. Immigration form hand over was further along the queue, then someone collected half the receipt for the 10$, then more queuing to get through passport control. Once through coach journey to hotel was fine, about 15 minutes. Guide...

Went on Mother's Day weekend and stayed at the adults only. The room was amazingly beautiful as well as the grounds. The beach area beautiful as well as the water clean, clear and warm and you can go topless. The resort is all inclusive and there are shows every night on the other resort that is just a short walk,...

I was expecting better for the room after paying $140 dollars for the up grade. The bedding was not comfortable after a 3 hours flight into the country. I needed to speak to someone about my stay but the guy at the desk at 5:30 am didn't speak English. I was looking for something off my stay. Being that I'm...

Rooms we were in had a lot of issues. It appears that there is no quality control on the repair of the rooms. Beach could have been cleaner with removal of seaweed. Staff was excellent. Food was generally very good although it was often tough to get a 2nd cup of coffee in the buffet. This kind of put a...
