Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled on manicured grounds near the beach, Catalonia Royal Bavaro offers an adults-only retreat that many travelers find tranquil with enjoyable nightly entertainment. While the resort's dining options and beautiful beachfront earn rave reviews, opinions on room quality and cleanliness vary, with some guests reporting maintenance and housekeeping issues. The service experience is mixed; some staff members are commended for their attentiveness, whereas others are noted for slow responses. Although the atmosphere is generally liked, a few guests feel it lacks vibrancy. The value proposition receives divided feedback, as some cite concerns over pricing and expectations.

Rosa from Ma Loo is the best. She is so friendly and always willing to help and she makes the best smoothies. Such a pleasure to meet her everyday on the beach and talk to her. We were going on the beach close to her place everyday and noticed that she was friendly with everyone.

Hotel grounds were beautiful, staff were great, food was amazing and temperature was HOT! We've been to many adults only and this is not one we'd go back to. A few of the downfalls are the beach is full of weeds and sand fleas. The guys tried to clean it up but it's impossible. Our room was ok, it was missing a blow dryer so they gave us one but it had the case and should have been stuck to the wall. We had to call to get robes and slippers and there was no conditioner in the room. Girls at bar are awesome. But they did run out of some alcohol several days. Was hard to get room service to bring us up ice (as there is no ice maker, you have to call room service). Also we would have liked more entertainment or music during the day.

Loved our stay. The food was great and the staff were incredible. There is seaweed on the beach but staff work tirelessly to keep it at bay as much as they can. If you prefer quiet at the pool try the infinity pool as there is no swim up bar. It is next to the beach and our favourite.

Check in process if you upgrade not good...no information given that you have to go to their other resort next door to pay that part of your bill...locked us out of our room by end of day...great start, right. Took 2 hours for staff to figure out what was wrong. Housekeeping spotty (old worn out towels which were shorted daily and shabby robes with no ties)...most restaurants were OK, but grizzly steaks unedible at the steakhouse. Staff incredible but had to apologize daily for the shortcomings of the facility. Forget golf! Clubhouse old with no snack bar or drinks and the club rentals are ancient, mismatched and grips worn out or torn. Would not recommend. Too bad, as it has potential and it a very pretty facility but it can't deliver.

Adult side only. Reading the reviews wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. Let me start by saying my wife and I are in our mid 50’s and have been taking all inclusive vacations for over twenty years from 3 star to 5 star resorts. - food was slightly above average. Took a long time to get. - mixed drinks were weak - beach all I can say is SEAWEED. The help did what they could, worked hard but the battle was lost before it began. You will get bothered on the beach by vendors but knowing these kind of vacations you should have already expected that. They are very respectful, nice and keep moving if you’re not interested. Ana gives a great massage she is a vendor on the beach - rooms were dated and need some help. Showers are very small but soaker tubs were large. We stayed in building 19 which is closer to the beach. - no servers by the pool or beach need to get your own. - pool (two pools) odd layout with the pool with the swim up bar is up by the main lobby and the waiting pool down by the beach. Both pools need some help. Plaster is chipping, tiles falling off - one thing that was just horrible was the sewer smell. As you get close to the beach there was a nasty sewer smell behind the Beach Bar. - restaurants make sure to make your reservations after you check in. - this is a very small and quiet resort. A few times we needed to head over to the family side. There big pool with swim up bar was by the beach and a lot nicer. ** all said and done we paid an average price to stay at an average resort. This resort the way it is now is a 3 star resort. It is NOT a 4-5 star. None the less the staff was nice worked hard and the vacation was very much needed.

The service is very low standard , not well trained at all. I have had three main issues and on the third one I had enough and to speak to a manager (on the phone) they said I had to go to reception, So you are angry and instead of passing the call to a Manager they ask you to go and complain in reception , Not to clever if you want all other guests to know the challenges they are going to encounter during the stay. I hope someone contact me me via email before I go into details. Staying at room 4445 at the moment. At the adults only resort

We went for two weeks and it was very relaxing. The resort staff are all very helpful and care about all the little details. My wife was in a wheelchair and we were always helped as much as possible which made it that much better. It was quite and relaxing and the food was mostly very good. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a quite layed back holiday.

We love the convenience of having the room key on the wrist band. The room it self is spacious including the balcony, shower, tub and closet space. All staff members from housekeeping, restaurant, bar and front desk are always friendly and ready to help. They always make eye contact and greet you with an HOLA! The gardens are lovely and well maintained including both pool areas with the high quality loungers. It’s a plus having the rights to use the tennis and padel courts and to having access to the 9hole golf course located just steps away on the family side of the Catalonia Bavaro. The food selections have been good at the buffets and there are many a la carts restaurants to choose from as well. The one thing that would have made my vacation a 5/5 is if the sargassum was not out of control on the beach😕. There has to be a better and quicker way of cleaning it up so the guests are not walking ankle deep in it. Yuck!

I might go here again…the room was very nice and cold lol. The check in and check out was the best we’ve ever had. The beach was just ok- too much shade. The pools were ok, but the one by the buffet needs some renovations. Finding pool chairs if you didn’t wake up at 7 to save them was a nightmare. The food was just ok.
