We were at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro from Nov 19 to 26 this year, and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. After a very stressful year we decided to get away for a week and just relax. This is why we chose the Cat Royal - it was exactly what we were looking for! We were in villa 42, and...

Inspite of all the problems we had with our 2 Superior Junior Suites, the 4 of us manage to have a great time. Our suites had broken entry locks, non functioning thermostats, on 2 days 1 suite had leaking water from the ceiling due to the air conditioning, both suites had electrical problems - the power would go off everyday,...

My boyfriend and I booked this trip in October and then I became very skeptical as I read all of the reviews. I packed everything except my kitchen sink prepared to tackle the odor, the food and the boredom I was going to face at this hotel based off past reviews. We arrived on November 30 around 3pm and check-in...

We were here one day and just had to leave, we paid more money to be transferred to Barcelo Bavaro Beach which was much nicer. There is no such thing as an ocean view room here, food was terrible, nothing to do!!!!! Mostly older people laying around a pool or the beach with no music or anything. Completely quiet and...

Our experience in Catalonia Royal Bavaro has been excellent. The hotel facilities are great: two private pools, with different atmospheres (one relaxed, one party-like). The beach is really nice and calmed. Of course you can also use all the facilities at the Catalonia Bavaro. The food is great. The main restaurant serves an a-la-carte dinner which is amazing, with lobster...

I just checked in today, everything went very smoothly, (room 3632) grounds are very nice, etc. The reason for this being a 2 rating is the smell in our room. I have never complained or written a review before, but the damp musk smell in our room is brutal. (I run a dairy farm for a living so it's not...
