After reading all of the reviews, and then experiencing the resort.. all I can say is ..if you expect TO or NYC food and nite life.. stay home. The Catalonia is a very clean and comfortable resort. My son was married there on January 18 .. on the beach, and the staff were incredible. I cannot say enough. 42 of... More

We were at Catalonia Jan 11 - 18 and had a super time. We have never been to an all inclusive or for that matter any where south! I did plenty of reading of Catalonia on the forums etc. and found that all the positive reviews were right on! The people there are very friendly and helpful. The pool is... More

We went to this hotel one year ago. On the first day of our arrival the toilet did not work, so we could not use the bathroom. The service was terrible. They cleaned our room very late. I couldn't take a shower when I wanted. The food wasn't fresh. They gave us the food from previous days. Even people who... More

We love Dominican Republic and stayed at different places including small hotels ( quite an experience and so much fun!) But the whole family (six persons = three rooms) decided to spend one week (including New Year Eve 2005) at the Catalonia Bavaro Resort. A real mistake! The rooms were OK... And so was the staff in charge of the... More

We arrived at the resort at 11:45 am. We were told our room would not be ready untill 2:30 -4:00. This was not a problem for us due to only bringing a carry on for easy access to our bathing suits. our wristbands were given to us upon arrival allowing us to access to all the facilities, food, drink, beach...

Always a new show at night time as well as a disco and a childrens disco. It was very entertaining. The staff is extremely friendly and lively. The food was great. The Japanese restaurant was a...

I really can't understand some people. We just got back on January 8th from the Catalonia. My wife and I had a wonderful time. For all those who made comment about the food, I guess it depends on how picky you are. There was nothing wrong with the food. This resort is the only one in the Dominican I have... More
