The resort have a incredible structucre. The room is big, with a very nice bathroom. They have 4 restaurants (Chinese, Mexican, American and Italian food). The breakfast its very nice, with so many options. The beach, it's very clean and quiet. I recommend this resort to your vacation or honey moon.

We have just returned from a week all inclusive. We chose the Resort as we had teenagers in tow. We had a lovely week staying in two junior privilege suites, the rooms were lovely with corner balconies, hammocks and comfortable sofas. The Pure beach area was lovely with white sand, spaced out sun loungers and a nice Bar. There is... More

We visited the Catalonia Bavaro on the 30th June for two weeks, arriving back on the 15th July and we were pleasantly surprised! We booked this trip via Thomson last minute, so we weren't expecting it to be amazing however when we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly shocked. The hotel looked as if it had recently been renovated... More

I traveled here by myself for a relaxing holiday. I arrived at 12pm, checked in and was told to enjoy the facilities until 3pm as the room would not be ready until then. I stayed in a regular room. It was nice. The shower area is small. There is a huge round tub which takes up 1/2 the bathroom. My... More

This hotel had all the potential to be a great resort but in the end I left Dom Rep with a view of not to return. This is a 5* resort that has forgotten how to do the basics. Traveled as a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenage children and all 4 of us suffered from upset stomachs... More

Upon arrival, the hotel looked good for the most part, it was decorated nicely and it looked clean, which it was. However, the heat also struck us, and the Dominican Republic being such a hot place as it is, the hotel could have accommodated for this with some air conditioning in the lobby. On the subject of air conditioning, my... More
