Stayed here in August with my husband and 2 daughters. Had booked 2 rooms and when arrived found they weren't next to each other. Was told to wait in one room while they tried to resolve this issue within 20 minutes. The room we went to wait in smelled damp and the air conditioning didn't work, which you will definitely...

Catalonia Bavaro Beach was a great place to vacation if you're looking for a place to relax by the pool or beach. The food was surprisingly good (I had had bad experiences at other all inclusive resorts) and the staff were always helpful. We especially loved Pedro Nunez! He was so gracious and kind to my boyfriend and I, always... More

Overall this is a really good 3* Hotel rather than the 5* it claims to be. It is a busy FAMILY hotel, we traveled with 2 primary aged children and they were some of the oldest there. Upon arrival you are given a wrist band which denotes the language you speak (to let the staff know apparently). There were many... More

First I'd like to start with all the positives, the staff are friendly, happy and always seem to try their best to make you feel special. We went to the Dominican armed with all sorts of pills and sachets for upset tummys but I have to say, being sensible with what we ate the worst we had was a tummy... More

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
