We just returned from another amazing week at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place and their staff. It was our 2nd trip here and we were so flattered that some of the staff even remember us from last time. We originally received the same room as last time (totally coincidental!) However the air...

Just came back from a wonderful week at Royal Catalonia Bravaro. Thanks to Roberto, Amarlily, Andres, and Cecelia! Beautiful grounds! The food was superior and love the sit down, menu ordering nature of the resort. And NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Also had an awesome beach party!! Gracias everyone! Wow!

I surprised my wife with a 7 day birthday trip and chose this place because of the reviews. We were not disappointed at all. The grounds were kept so perfect it didn't look real at times, the staff worked around the clock keeping the resort very clean. Upon our arrival we were greeted at the door with a warm welcome...

This was a good value for the money. The restaurants and food were great. We like having sit down restaurants without having to make reservations. The room was nice but a bit musty, but mostly corrected after the AC was kicked up on high for a day. There was a leak in the room above us, and a small piece... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from Catalonia Royal Bavaro, and had a wonderful stay. Overall, I think it's a solid resort that has a lot going for it. I don't really agree with any of the negative comments below, particularly the comments about service (I did not experience any problems with the staff). I also didn't notice anything that... More

Hello everyone! My husband and I are headed to this resort at the end of February. I have been the the neighbouring resort, and when I had the chance to sneak over and see the royal, I knew my husband and I had to come here! So my question is: If I am booked at the Royal side do I... More

We just returned from 2 weeks at the Royal Catalonia and already planning on returning next year. The staff are amazing! They will do anything that they can to make your stay fantastic. Charlton would stop every time he saw us to ask if we needed anything. Our room was not ready when we arrived so Charlton came to see... More

The Catalonia Royal is great if you want to go to a resort and spend your entire time there. We went for 5 days and did not leave the resort. There is a casino but we didn't check it out. Also there are several different stores, a mini-market and a pharmacy on site. We paid for all-inclusive and were very... More
