Upon arrival in our room, the refrigerator and telephone did not work. Our door key reader worked occasionally. After a day and a half of complaining to the very uncaring desk clerks, our door key pretty much stopped working. We made numerous walks from our room to the desk ( 1/4 mile each way) to get the key reprogrammed?? Then... More

This is late review but had to review this place we had an amazing time here. We went for Spring Break in April with my husband, son, his best friend, and his family - it was amazing. The staff is so friendly and we could not have asked for a better trip for the kids Spring Break. The beach is... More

This resort is dated and needs work. The pool area was in need of a good cleaning. The resort needed maintenance and paint. The food was decent and the restaurant selection was actually pretty decent. The drinks at the bar were good but the menu is fairly limited. If you are not staying in a privileged suite don't plan on... More

I'm on my trip now and I could not say I would ever come back. I came here about 6 years ago to the same exact resort and it was beautiful. Well, looks like nothing has changed... You might think wait that's not bad then. No. It hasn't changed, absolutely nothing. Same beach chairs, rooms, silverware, beds etc. it's like... More

Just spent a 4-night stay at HC Bavaro/Punta Cana with my boyfriend. Reading reviews, I was nervous but we really had a wonderful stay. Everyone was friendly and welcoming! The food was certainly edible (we never got sick). The resort was crowded, but we never felt as though there were too many people anywhere. We were always able to get... More

I'm used to traveling on a budget and the old saying "you get what you pay for". Well, if that's the case then Catalonia Punta Cana is WAY overpriced. I'm still on my vacation now but instead of going out and having fun I'm standing in the rain just to connect to their wifi to complain about them. From our... More

The beach is the best thing about this resort, and the resort grounds are well kept. the rooms are nice, but the buffet food at this all inclusive resort didn't offer enough variety. They were helpfull in booking tours that were interesting. This resort is so big that it does require a lot of walking to get around from the... More

The resort scene in Punta Cana continues to evolve, and this was our first look at this location as a potential ongoing vacation spot. I don't see us ever returning - at least not to this property. There were no more than three employees who spoke any english, so of course, unless you were bi-lingual, they had no idea whatsoever... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to plan a trip to an all inclusive resort. As we were planning, I did a LOT of research on hotels in Punta Cana. We would find a hotel that looked nice and then start reading the reviews and end up feeling really disappointed. What we soon realized was that no resort is perfect and... More

So after months of waiting I took my beach vacation to Punta Cana. I researched resort after resort and ended up going to the Catalonia. First, the resort is nice, if you get a villa by the bars and restaurants it is a walk to the beach and pool, but a scenic walk. Visa versa if you get a villa... More
