I am currently staying at the Royal adult only side. Checked in on Saturday and have had nothing but problems. Most very similar to those already written about on this site. The positives were the large rooms, comfy bed, and the food was good. The negatives are too many to list but the biggest complaint is poor service. It seems... More

In order to put this review in perspective, understand that my wife and I are fortunate to be seasoned travellers who have been to the majority of the islands in the Caribbean as well as to Europe, the Middle East, Hong Kong, Bali, Thailand, USA and Russia. Royal Catalonia is an adults only resort which is maintained in pristine condition.... More

We have returned this week from a fortnight stay at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. As far as bang for buck goes this is a very good resort, let's be clear it's not 5 star luxury but neither is the price paid, it is however a very clean welcoming resort with great staff, good food and facilities to suit most tastes....

We visited this resort for 10 days, nov 24-dec 4, I agree with the other reviews this is a quieter resort, great for a relaxing vacation. We hung out mostly at the pool by the lobby, by mid-afternoon the swim up bar was great fun and a excellent place to mingle and meet new ppl. I want to make a... More

We returned for the third time during Dec.14 and things are just getting better. Angela had reserved the room we requested on the 3rd.floor poolside. The room was fantastic with a king size bed, a well appointed bathroom and a big balcony. The room was cleaned daily, the fridge restocked every day with beer and soft drinks. Towels were formed...

We stayed from December 1st - December 7th, 2014 and had a great time at this resort. The food and service were outstanding and we were very sad to leave. We spent some time at the family side because of the entertainment and other food options, but it was very nice to be able to return to a quiet area... More

Went to celebrate our 28 wedding anniversary and the hotel did nothing to help with this celebration. The management didn't even care about our stay. We brought 2 other couples with us also. They couldn't find our reservation even though I had a copy of my confirmation. Made us wait for hours. Not a good experience overall. Will not return... More
