Extremely noisy as the resort next door (Pearl Resort) is blasting its music from 12pm until 8pm. If your room is next to that resort you will feel the vibrations in your room... The wi-fi is terrible (no connections in the room). Check in super slow.

Reviewed March 16, 2017

First-time to Dominican republic, airport was awful, took 2 hours of snaking in a line to pay the 10 $ for entry. Immigration form hand over was further along the queue, then someone collected half the receipt for the 10$, then more queuing to get through passport control. Once through coach journey to hotel was fine, about 15 minutes. Guide...

Employees have always their faces close, no smile. We have talk to 2 managers and they couldn't do anything, one manager has offered us a bottle of champagne which that we never received until now. But we were happy anyway.

I don't recommend upgrading to privledge I got a honeymoon suite and it was exactly the same room as my buddy's, the only thing that was nice is that you had your own section to eat breakfast and you got seated faster.

Very good beach where you could actually go in the water without cutting your feet on coral. Lots to do on the resort. Excellent food and service. Rooms were a bit dated. It very clean and had an excellent bed, very comfortable.

This hotel is so beautiful!! It is a very huge resort to walk around and enjoy the beautiful nature. The grounds and ocean were kept very clean. I would walk around in my bare feet and it takes a lot for me to do that. The staff was very on top of keeping cups and what not picked up. In...

Not what we expected for the price. The food at the buffet was average but did not change much when it came to variety. The Staff, as well as the room service was inconsistent. Not much night life for kids ranging from 16-17 years.

The grounds of the hotel are beautifully maintained. Lots of different plants, flowers, shrubbery, etc. It is just lovely to look at. The buffet was amazing (Gran Caribe). We did eat at the Yuca and the Steak House, as well as the Spanish Tapas Bar, but the buffet food was so much better than these places, and the service at...

Just returned from a one week relaxing stay at Catalonia Bavero and enjoyed each day! The resort grounds are beautifully kept. The beach and bar areas are well maintained and everything is a short walk away. We were in Villa #12 and loved the location.
