We are mid stay of our regular two weeks holiday here at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. The refurbishment of the pool/seating area is stunning, what a difference. Plenty of comfortable sofas, overhead canopy and new bar with nightly entertainment. This is our 7th visit to this resort and happy to see most of the staff remain, the widest genuine smiles...

We booked the honeymoon package and our room was very spacious and a great location within the resort. At this all inclusive adults only resort, the restaurants were very good and we dined at the sister property's restaurants as well. Is like to particularly recognize.

This was our eighth visit to the Royal. We have been to the DR almost 20 times over the years and this remains our favourite. The fact that some of the staff are the same says a lot for the management. Adults only; no dinner bookings required; as many a la cartes as you want; free golf; 20 minutes from... More

Our 4th visit to this resort. Reasons we chose it: -adults only, but with access to all the amenities of the adjoining sister property -close proximity to the airport (about a 15 minute drive) -golfing included and no caddy required (although mandatory cart for two costs $90 US) -availability of personal sailing -smallish property, very easy to navigate - adequate...

For all of the indulgences that an all-inclusive can offer, how is this possible? It's simple, really. Both my wife and I became quite ill on 2 different occasions during our Jan 15 – 29 stay; diarrhea mainly but some vomiting as well. Each episode would see us more or less confined to the room for the better part of... More

Just got back from my 3rd time at this resort (Jan 28 thru Feb 4) -- the only resort I've wanted to go to more than once! I've stayed at the family side once, and now the adults-only, Royal, side twice. It is definitely worth the cost to go adults-only. Check in was super easy and quick, even with 5... More

Travelled as a group of six. The food was fantastic, the weather perfect, service excellent, rooms clean and big! We did a booze cruise, rode the dune buggy's and two of the guys golfed. Some of us did an off resort massage...... the ladies there are very skilled at their work. We frequented the Dominican WalMart just down the beach... More

Once again we enjoyed our visit to the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. The pleasant staff were on hand to greet us and make sure all was well. Our room was clean and ready for us with a welcome fruit tray and bottle of rum.. Our room was looked after in the morning and turned down in the evening. Lots of clean... More

1.26.16 - 2.1.16 This was our first trip to Punta Cana so I can't compare like some of the previous reviews.I am in construction and am very anal to details and was a little skeptical upon our arrival.I'm guessing craftsmanship is different than what I am use to. Our check in went very good, but as soon as we were... More

We decided to get away from it all and spent Christmas here. Our room was lovely and the choice of food was great. People winge about the beach but it's pretty much the same whichever hotel you're at. We did some trips like the outback safari and saona island which I really recommend.
