My husband and I went for our honeymoon and brought a few friends along. I read the reviews before I left and crossed my fingers. I've been to at least 20-25 resorts over the years on all different Islands. I've been to the best of the best and worst of the worst so I didn't know what to expect with... More

Great!! My husband and I spent 5 days for our anniversary and all he can say is when are we going back. We had an awesome vacation. The staff was great especially Juan Charleston. The food was great, the only downside is the beach was full of seaweed so we didn't go in, but the pool and my favorite bar... More

I was amazed how absolutely beautiful the grounds were at this hotel. I have stayed at a few all inclusives before, so I feel that I have something to compare it to. The hotel was nice also. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the extremely pungent musty smell of our upgraded room.... More

I'm sincerely confused as to how this resort got such good ratings. We had to switch rooms twice because the air condition was not working and the other one has no hot water. The rooms were filthy and the entire resort had the illusion of luxury. If you need something delivered to your room like towels, prepare to wait a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro from 7/18--25/2015. I've had time to come home and process the entire experience. On a whole, I would say that the resort is 2.5 stars at best, and I'm probably being generous with that rating. Be prepared to speak Spanish during the majority of your stay. We stayed in a... More

I was very happy with the resort, it is huge. Our room was large and clean but it did have a musty smell. The resort was very clean, people are cleaning constantly. Restaurants were very good. I liked the Tapas place, the steak house and the grand buffet the best. Their are lots of free activities. Pools are large and... More

Everything is excellent! Waiters are very friendly, and very professional. The receptionists are smiling all the time and quick to help. The room service is also very good. The beach is great and the water is warm and clear. I do appreciate the way they understand to make our vacation memorable! Bravo!

The staff at the reception are incredibly friendly, and very well prepared, ready to help with anything, always greeting you with a big smile.
