Hotel was a great experience for our first time in Punta Cana. The food was great and there were many different options. Please ignore all negative reviews because this hotel was well worth the stay. The staff was very nice and was there at every point needed. There was a low wifi signal but this was due to so many... More

We stayed at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro the second week of April 2015. We had read alot of reviews, both good and bad but decided to make our own decision. We had a fabulous time! As I have seen written in previous reviews, this is not a 5 star resort, but we felt it was darn close. Everyone was very... More

Let me start off by saying that after reading a lot of the reviews I was very worried about this resort until we arrived. Check in was a breeze and didn't take long at all, we were met by the "concierge" and seeing how it was late in the afternoon he asked to meet with us the next day. After... More

If you planned ahead, meaning you called for requesting a special service. Non alcoholic beverages, a cake for your wife birthday, etc. THIS IS NOT the hotel that will care about it. I have to assumed myself to make if this a good experience. Also, expect half and hour before anyone will come and greet you at a Cata Tapa,... More

We stayed in the Adults Only side at this resort. It was very luxurious. The food was excellent, the pools were well cared for and clean. I loved the fact that there weren't kids yelling and splashing around. It was a wonderfully relaxing vacation!

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week over Easter 2015. Travel: For anyone in the UK I thought I'd add a little about the flgiht/transfer as it's a pretty important chunk of the experience. We flew from Gatwick on the Dreamliner - what a fantastic plane! Loads of entertainment, latest films, staff kind and lots of food (which was... More

Just to start, I want to let you know that we read the reviews of this resort and we were aware of the issues that some people had with their stay, so we were ready to overlook a few things. However, sometimes... you just can't when there is too much to overlook! I was going to rate 3 stars, however... More

My wife and I celebrated our first year anniversary here and it was amazing! I'm still pealing from a sunburn to remember it. Breakfast was excellent and we both liked being able to order off the menu and going to the buffet. Lunch was great with a wide variety of items to choose from at several restaurants. Dinner was spectacular!... More

We stayed over Easter 2015 for 7 nights to celebrate my 50th birthday and to recharge batteries. Booking somewhere without children (due to being over Easter) and getting the right price where difficult, however we travelled with Thomson on the new Dreamliner, and don't consider that we were ripped off! We asked at book in to upgrade to a room... More

I have visited many all inclusives. Jamacia, St.Martin, Mexcio etc. This was by far the best overall. The resort is small compared to most and was an 18+ vacation spot. First the worst. The ocean entry is not ideal with rocks on entering the water That said the beach is loaded with lounge chairs so there was no trouble there.... More
