Catalonia Bavaro is a resort for those looking to just hang by the pool and at the beach, and nothing more. My boyfriend and I traveled there for a weeklong vacation. We used Blue Travel Partner Services as our shuttle from the airport to the resort – we booked it in advance and it was great – no issues whatsoever.... More

It was better that I imagine. The price, service, atmosphere, and the beautiful staff make the perfect combination to make your stay unforgettable. The only thing they need are more signs on the road to help you to get to your destination due to poor Wi-Fi connection.

It was a great time. For two adults and two small children three and five we had a blast. If you’re looking for perfection you won’t find it there. Go spend 20K for week in St.Barts if you want to complain about the food, beach, room and service. First-the food was fine we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and never... More

I recently stayed in a privelaged room for my honeymoon. The staff is amazing, the beach is fabulous, and the grounds are very well-kept. However, the food is so bad that it literally ruined our honeymoon. Most of it is inedible, and we were both starving the entire time. The 34-hour snack bar is the worst offender. I ended up... More
