Great resort!!! Lots of restaurants, great food and awesome drinks. The service was always very fast and hospitable. It was an all in-exclusive resort with many activities to do everyday. The suite we stayed in was huge, although it did smell a little musty and the balcony door was hard to open and close. Everything in the resort was very... More

We were part of a very large group of 50+ and the service was indeed horrible, food was poorly prepared, as evidenced by the fact that several in the group got sick, I was stricken with food poisoning. My brother who was supposed to be privileged was tried to feel like a criminal because of some cheap towels. Extremely disappointed... More

My wife and I were guests at the hotel from July 12 to the 22nd 2015. The Pro. La Romana area is more peaceful than the more popular Punta Cana resorts. The beaches are just beautiful full of palm trees and free of sea weeds at least during our stay. Our hotel catered more to European guests which was OK... More

1/2 way during my vacation at the Catalonia Bavaro Beach I was given the opportunity to stay at this resort and upgraded to the privileged honeymoon suite. I really enjoyed this resort! The food was great, the beach was beautiful and it was a nice size resort. Most of the staff speak a bit of English. The service was poor... More

First of all, the overall impression is good. BUT there are a few buts that cannot go ignored. Number one, if you chose this hotel because of the free WiFi they promise – no. Just... no. The WiFi is selective as hell; we got lucky because we had a fairly good connection in our room. Everywhere else it seemed to... More

As one of 50+ family members that recently visited this poor out of date hotel we managed to make the best of an increasingly horrible experience at the catalonia hotel and resort. Outside of the Yuca restaurant every morsel of food there was both bland and tasteless. we had 30+ people out of our group of 50 that came down... More
