Absolutely loved this resort. The staff were very friendly, saying hello whenever you walk past or giving you a smile. The rooms were big & clean. We had a lovely relaxing one week stay, it was so peaceful & quiet. Lots of choice of food in the resort, for all meals of the day. Thoroughly recommend going and we hope... More

The resort is in excellent condition, very clean, immaculately groomed, and it's only a 20 minute ride from the Punta Cana airport. It's probably one of the smaller resorts I've stayed at but that doesn't mean it's short on amenities. This side (adults only) is the quieter side of the resort, and it's immediately next door to the family side.... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights, we are frequent all inclusive resort vacationers. Mostly at the Secrets chain. First time in D.R. so we thought we would try somewhere different. The theatre brings in a pretty good show every night. The food is very spread out and the variety is horrible. The habachi grill only has FOUR tables... More

Just went there from July 11 to 18 and I must say I was amazed. Where to begin.. The resort was very clean and well kept, the people are probably the nicest people I've come across. They will help you with anything and almost all of them know English. There isn't anything bad I could even say. To the people... More

I travelled in May 2014 with my Mum for a week all-inclusive at this hotel. I was studying for an exam so chose this couples-only resort to have peace and quiet and no screaming kids or booming music. This was a lovely hotel - the pool and grounds were well-maintained and it was well worth it's 4 star status. We... More

When booking this trip there were 2 things that were a must. A/C and WIFI, both suck. We are currently staying here from July 24th to July 31st and so far I am no happy. The property is beautiful but the beach and resturants are better on the other side. We have gone to the front desk numerous times about... More

This was my first all inclusive resort, so I tried to go in with an open mind but I really had no clue what to expect. I'll try to be brief. We arrived in the afternoon and got our delicious welcome drinks, we were told to come back in 30 minutes and our room would be ready. Got another drink... More

My husband and I went here in October 2013 for our honeymoon. We were actually staying in the adults only section but the taxi driver dropped us at the wrong entrance! We tried to check in but the guy at reception said he couldn't find our reservation. After a panicked 10 minutes he finally told us that we were staying... More

This was a good resort in the past been go there for 4years straight but this year it wasn't that grate. Why the management have employees hounding you to buy what they say it's a vacation club but we know it's a time share. We go there to relax and enjoy a vacation not to be hounded to buy anything....

We just returned today from a 5 day stay at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro resort. My husband and I stayed there from July 18-July 23rd for a much needed getaway. I read many horrible reviews prior to going so my expectations wew fairly low upon arriving. Well was I wrong. Our check in was a breeze and even got an... More
