Travelled in a group of 8 friends in our 40s and 50s. We all booked priveldged and felt like we were treated so. Rooms were clean and spacious. Loved the hammock on the balcony. Staff could not do enough for us. A la carte restaurants were okay but preferred the variety of the buffet. The Japanese restaurant had the best... More

Stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro from July 13-20 with my BF. This was our first vacation together and his first AI ever. I had read the reviews on TA before booking but in my experience everyone’s opinion/experience is just that...theirs.

This resort was absolutely amazing. There was not a minute where we were bored and had nothing to do. I highly recommend getting the "privileged" because of all the extra services. You will have a room right in front of the beach, a breakfast&lunch buffet 2 minutes away (instead of going to the main lobby *which is 8 minutes away*),... More

The hotel is beautiful, although a little dated, the majority of the staff is friendly and the rooms are ok. The drinks are good but the food is poor; the flavor and quality of the ingredients can improve a lot. Be prepared to walk a lot, since the beach and rooms are really far from reception, lobby bar and restaurants.... More

I just want to start off by saying that while this was my first trip to the Dominican, my family and I spend two weeks in the Caribbean every year, so I figure I can give a pretty decent review of this place relative to others. First of all, this is a family/couples resort. There is both plenty of space... More

Overall, very nice place. We stayed in the privileged area and all of the amenities that came with that were great - close to the beach, private area on beach, room service, access to all restaurants. Quality of food could have been better but that may just be because we are a steak and potatoes kind of family and things... More

You'll see when you arrive how beautiful this property is. I had a certain expectation for my room, based on the pictures shown when I booked. Instead, the room I was given had ugly, yellow, dated curtains and comforter and overall looked very dreary. I went back to the front desk and let them know that I was unhappy with... More

I've traveled to this hotel with group of friends. We've stayed for 14 days. What did we like: nice beach, on-site diving center, little or no hassling on the beach from vendors (beaches in DR are public), strong cocktails they certainly don't skimp on alcohol, restaurant food is OK, animation team and service teams work hard to make your stay...
