Stay Somewhere Else!!! This was the absolute worst resort my husband and I have ever stayed at. I thought this was a good resort and was excited about visiting Punta Cana for the first time. The people that give this place a good review must not know how an All-Inclusive resort is supposed to treat you and service you. I'll... More

The Catalonia Royal in Bavaro had my spouse and I speaking everyday of how is it possible to get the staff to be so friendly and accommodating without it seeming forced! The staff is wonderful, the surrounding are beautiful and the hotel accommodations are clean and comfortable. I want to specifically recognize three staff members that made our stay there... More

At that time the pool closest to the entrance and check-in had yellow tape around it and was out of service for our entire stay. *Our first room although nice smelled of mildew so bad we had to move into another room immediately. That room felt... More

My wife and I went there for our anniversary , It was an excellent Resort and ideal for the couples with lots of restaurants and activities. Tips: WIFI in the rooms is just a joke ! but who cares Try not to miss the Japanese restaurant and Casino!

My husband and I stayed at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro for a week back in April 2012, but having just returned from another adults-only in the Caribbean, I wanted to share my experience here too. This was the first all-inclusive vacation that we went on together as we normally book flights and accommodations separately. I prefer planning our trips this... More

Just got back from our honeymoon here and had a GREAT time! We decided on the "Adults Only" side and it was the best decision! It was so quiet and peaceful. The PERFECT way to relax! All of the staff were very friendly and I got to use my high school Spanish which I surprisingly remembered a lot of. Helpful... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Catalonia Royal in September along with another couple and had a very nice time. The resort grounds is just beautiful, you can tell they take pride in their appearance because everything is well maintained. We went to both the infinity and swim up pool as well as the beach and we found ourselves... More
