I acknowledge that some people were swept off by time share sales people, had to wait long to get checked-in, and experience sweltering heat with a broken A/C. My experience was a bit better, although some points for improvement exist. The Good: my room was large, clean, and carefully serviced every day. It was nice to have bottled beverages stocked...

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

Just completed an awesome vacation at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro this week. It was just what we needed to getaway and truly just relax and chill out. 3 things stood out for us at the Royal Bavaro: 1) Super laid back - It never felt like the place was crowded with people. We often wondered where everyone else was. Cross... More

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

Cons: *We stayed at the resort for my birthday last year in Sept. 2013. 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 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.
