A few friends and I got together a few weeks before March Break and decided we needed to get away from the snow. I contacted Jayne at Beach Bum Vacations to help us out. She went above and beyond trying to match our needs and our budget. We had her contact info in the event of any problems and she... More

Returned a week ago-my first visit to the Catalonia. Can't think of anything negative other than the elevator music at the sea blue restaurant. Food-service-pool-weather was amazing. Lot's of activities next door if you feel its too quiet. Great Beach party.

I just got back from a 5 day trip to Punta Cana. This resort is beautiful. We stayed on the Royal side which is adults only. But the family side is just a nice. The food was all better than I expected. I would say that the restaurants on the Royal side were a little better, but it is also... More

My wife and I visited Catalonia Royal Bavaro from March 13th through the 20th and we had the most wonderful time. We booked this trip in January and after reading some negative reviews, I was getting scared........Was I ever wrong to be! We had an executive suite with private pool and the room was spacious, clean and not musty at... More

My husband and I are very seasoned travelers. We stayed here for a week in March. Overall I wasn't extremely satisfied with the entire experience considering what we had paid. The staff was overall surprisingly not very hospitable -from the front desk manager to the service staff in the restaurants. I think this was the most unfortunate part of our... More

Last year, my wife and I stayed in this adult only resort and had a wonderful experience. The facilities are pristine and while our Junior Suite was somewhat small, it was nicely furnished and served our needs well for the time we spent there. The mini bar was restocked each day like clockwork and the maid service was excellent. The... More

Helen, our housekeeper did a great job of keeping our room clean and neat. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable with nice balcony's. We enjoyed the... More

My husband and I vacationed at this resort from March 11th-18th. The resort is very clean. The staff work very hard at keeping the grounds immaculately landscaped and tidy. The pools were cleaned routinely throughout the day. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Nice variety of food at the various restaurants albeit the service can be a little slow.... More
