Once again we enjoyed our visit to the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. The pleasant staff were on hand to greet us and make sure all was well. Our room was clean and ready for us with a welcome fruit tray and bottle of rum.. Our room was looked after in the morning and turned down in the evening. Lots of clean... More

We decided to get away from it all and spent Christmas here. Our room was lovely and the choice of food was great. People winge about the beach but it's pretty much the same whichever hotel you're at. We did some trips like the outback safari and saona island which I really recommend.

Having visited and stayed at the Catalonia Royal in Punta Cana on eight previous occasions, the people who work there keep drawing me to return. My travels have taken me to many, numerous Islands of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. It is at the Catalonia Royal where the management seems to somehow find staff people who are, indeed, "Happy!"... More

I'll try and wrap this briefly. We were at the Catalonia Royale Bavaro which is the adult side of the resort. It is pricier but not sure if it's worth it. We spent most the time on the rest of the resort. The big advantage was the use of all restaurants on both resorts. Restaurants - All were good. The... More

This was our second trip here and enjoyed it as much the second time as the first. The staff was just as friendly as last year. We ran into trouble the last day before checkout with our door's lock. But it was fixed in a timely manner. And while we waited for it to be repaired they nicely went a... More

THE GOOD: You will travel far to find people who will work harder to make their guests happy. At check-in the front desk staff were quick (which was good at it took us 24 hours to get there) and knowledgeable. They explained the essentials and had us moving along fast. The bellmen took us to our rooms and took care... More

We have been to the Dominican 4 times all at different resorts searching for "the one" to come back to every year, and this was it! Everything we wish for in a tropical resort was here. The food was delicious in every restaurant and meals made on the beach were fun and authentic Dominican cuisine. The grounds were impeccable and... More

My husband and I have been going to the Dominican Republic since the year 2000. After visiting other resorts including Catalonia Bavaro, we found out about their next door sister resort Royal Catalonia, it's an adult only resort that has been a place of relaxation and retreat for us. It's only 15 minutes away from the airport and the beach... More

Everything from the service to the cleanliness of the room was great. Restaurants were all good, with an nice variety. It is worth upgrading to the Royal side if you don't have kids or want a more laid back atmosphere.

This was the first vacation my husband and I have taken by ourselves in 30 years. It was worth the wait. From the pleasant staff to the perfect accommodations, this was perfect. If you want a vacation that is stress free, this is the vacation you need. We are already planning our return.
