Really laid back and nice for people-watching. Not the beach you want to go to if you want a quiet private beach but lounge chairs and some light music made a visit here really fun! Try the Pina Coladas at Jellyfish- they were perfect!

Employees rude and spoke little English if any. Food not good, pools close at 8PM, eating is outside under pavilion.

Gorgeous area on a more 'quiet' beach (during the off-season at least). Local restaurants had delicious food.

It was very pretty and a great experience but once you got on the beach there were a lot of locals trying to sell stuff. Just would rather not have been bothered.

This is a great beach. You can walk for miles. The sand does not get too hot. We had wavy conditions every day.

We stayed and the Catalonia Bavaro Resort and we loved it and it was out 2nd one we have stayed in Punta Cana and the 4th over all for the All-Inclusive resorts that we have stayed in and is the best one. The resort is huge and well kept and we hope to be back as soon as we can.
