....but not the ideal place for couples. The food is just OK....the buffet got boring quickly and the "specialty" restaurants were not fabulous...aside from the fact that you can only visit each restaurant once during a week stay. Towels were not easy to come by from housekeeping either, I think the language barrier has something to do with that issue.... More

really enjoyed the resort - lay out was nice in relation the restaurants, beach, pool, and amenities...made it easy to find your way around. liked the size of the resort (not too big, so it didn't feel "crowded"). the entertainment staff were amazing! found the other staff not quite as friendly as we've had in other places. weather was perfect...

Due to a recent blizzard forecast in NY, my fiance and I were forced to reschedule or cancel our trp to this resort. JetBlue was kind enough not charge for any changes/cancellations to our original itinerary where the resort, Catalonia Bavaro Beach, charged us $450 for the cancellation, despite the fact that it was due to weather. This would have... More

I was simply terrified with the reviews read before I went there. People saying the staff was impolite and cold; rooms were old and dirty; insects everywhere; terrible food and so on. Certainly I’ve read much more bad than good things overall. Almost giving up of the purchase, my husband calmed down: “Honey, people have different impressions, let’s go and... More

The grounds are beautiful and the beach is wonderful. Our room (plain junior suite) was nice with a large tub. Our maid was great, we took her a gift and she was so thankful. We weren't at the pool area much as we were at the beach but it seem to be very busy and lots of fun. The beach... More

Visited Jan 2015 (actually, still here. Going home tomorrow) Really nice and large hotel. We travel a lot, and there are people who will list the smallest peeve, like "slow to check in" or long walk from room to lobby" or whatever. Listen, if it's a large hotel, it's going to be a long walk. Nobody in Dominican works fast,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Catalonia Privilege section, Jan 15-22, 2105. The upgrade is so worth it. First the travel time from airport to hotel is approx. 15 -20 minutes. The hotel is 15 years old. They have recently renovated the hotel and some guest rooms. It looks as if they will be continuing the renovations. With the... More

My husband and I went to celebrate our Anniversary. We arrived at midnight, the check in was slow and we had to find our room in the dark by ourselves. The door was jammed and very hard to open during the visit. If you love the water this beach in not the one for you. It is located on the... More
