First of all I have to start by saying IGNORE EVERY NEGATIVE REVIEW. I have just come back from 2 weeks at the Catalonia Bavaro Resort with my boyfriend. The photos of this hotel do not do it any justice, the resort has been completely refurbished since most of these photos were taken and is absolutely beautiful. The staff at... More

I visited this resort May1-May 8 with a group of 5 couples. We all upgraded to a Privileged Junior Suite. Checkin smooth, room size adequate, linens need updating (washcloths are almost impossible to get from housekeeping so bring your own if you use them), a/c not real cold, nice balcony, room service prompt for breakfast delivery. Food in specialty restaurants... More

I have traveled to Punta Cana a total of 8 times to five resorts. This is by far the worst. Air conditioning was not cold, The food was mostly not good. The room was OK. Constantly asking you to do a tour(timeshare promotion). Beach was not a typical Punta Cana beach. The WiFi was spotty at best. The free green... More

This hotel is superb. 1. Food is diverse and delicious. 2. Rooms are clean and spacious. 3. The beach is awesome: white sand, blue sea, permanent cleaning service, great cocktails (make sure you try Mai Tai), secure environment (I left my stuff unattended in multiple occasions and nothing happened). 4. Pools are great too. The only suggestion I have is... More

There is constant asking for Money and to join their time share. Even if you say no at the meeting there are people at the beach and outside the buffet. It made you feel as if you were there FOR a time share only you were paying!! The lobby staff (except the front desk lady) was useless. They would just... More

Granted I live in Florida and may be a bit of a beach snob, I've also traveled to many different areas of the Dominican Republic and have stayed at other all-inclusive resorts, so I have a point of reference for this review.
