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. Rooms were nice and spacious, with a sitting area, king bed, and two bathroom areas....

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...

The very loud boom-boom music from the new Calatonia PEARL Beachclub was overwhelming during most days and some nights. It completely dominated the whole Catalonia Bavaro resort environment. When we complained about it (several times), nothing was done and we were "glossed-over" because the staff were doing their best to promote the Pearl as a glitsy tour destination for this...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Catalonia resort. We were a group of 17 people. My husband and I thought that the resort was rated and priced accordingly. If you are easy to please and easy going you will not have any issues here. We have no complaints only a few “preferences”. GROUNDS: Size and layout were good, we...

Too expensive for the quality of service. Room service and cleanliness on the site are lacking. Personnel not too incluned to help, you have to make many requests before things get done. Bed is very hard for a 4 star hotel. Food and restaurants are ok. No service at the pool!
