My girlfriend and I had a great week long stay here August 15th. It's worth every penny to upgrade to the privileged room and services. The staff were very friendly and the food was good. The Italian restaurant was the only one that we thought was below par. The Japanese and steak house were very good. The only downside was... More

We have just returned from a great family holiday at the Catalonia Bavaro in Punta Cana. I must give a big thank you to the Club Blue Dreams hotel in Bodrum, without the holiday that we had to endure last year we may have taken the easy option and returned to Turkey. We arrived at the Catalonia Bavaro at 15.00hrs;... More

What was picturesque from a distance was sub-par up close. It was a huge complex of rundown buildings. The landscaping had weeds and a lot of dirt up close. The many decorative pools were filled with stagnant water breeding mosquitoes. The all-you-can-eat buffet had food that you didn’t want to eat much of. You were allowed only one visit each... More

Just returned yesterday from a week's stay at this hotel with 15 other family members. We only went there because it was one of the cheaper hotels that had rooms. You get what you pay for. Let's start with the good. The weather, that's about it. Hotel grounds are ok, but need some touching up. Food was manageable, though the... More

The women who was 7 months pregnant from the Privledge staff was great (sorry I forgot her name). She made sure we got the best available room, closest to the beach. The hotel property was huge, I swear I walked 20 miles this weekend. The hotel shuts down at 2, no place to get drinks or food. Unless you were... More

The number one reason I go to the Caribbean is for the beach and this resort beach was lousy. Food was good had a terrible experience with the membership club wasted almost two days never going back to this resort. Out of ten I would give this resort a six! On a good day
