We just returned today from a 5 day stay at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro resort. My husband and I stayed there from July 18-July 23rd for a much needed getaway.
I read many horrible reviews prior to going so my expectations wew fairly low upon arriving. Well was I wrong. Our check in was a breeze and even got an upgrade to thw honeymoon suite on the couples only side. We orginally booked the family side. See a smile and kidness goes a long way.
From there on out we were treated like royalty. Our room in villa 42 was always clean, spacious and comfortable. The bed was comfy as well as the pillows. They even had a pillow menu if the ones in the room didnt fit your fancy. You also get 24 hour room sevice included in your all inclusive package.
We didn't do any excursions as our main objective was to completely relax and not have any time constraints. We spent alot of time at the pool close to the front desk on the couples side. The pool Jacuzzi area was our favorite. We always found a spot to lay out with no problem. The pool bartender Carlos was the bomb.com. We tipped although not required but worth it because the service deserved it.
I will agree the food was my least favorite but I did find things that were pretty good and it helped me not to over eat on vacation like I normally do. Lol. Its not a deal breaker though.
I will return to this resort in a heartbeat. The service, the beautiful rooms and grounds and the boat load of activities are all worth it. Also, the grounds are beautiful and beautifully kept. Definitely an awesome place to vacation.
Tips: Bring your own insulated cup to keep your drinks cool by the pool and beach. Its very hot there.
