My wife and I went on our honeymoon here several weeks ago. Overall we had a good time. Some food was really good, some sub-par. Italian restaurant was our favorite. Very relaxing on the royal side. Nice, quite beach. Make sure you catch the beach parties that are on two nights during the week. Now, to the reason I wanted... More

Our first trip to DR and the Catalonia Royal Bavaro exceeded our expectations! Our room was stunning, service was excellent and food was varied and plentyful. Staff are very helpful and polite and always had a friendly "buenos dias" with a smile when passing. I loved the waiter service on the beach, the swim up bar at the main pool... More

The Catalonia Royal is a nice resort and we enjoyed the Adults Only concept but it was not fantastic. We did like our large, nicely furnished Deluxe Suite overlooking the gardens and Villas with private pool. We liked that there was untouched jungle to look at behind the resort grounds. The shower was really nice with 2 shower heads (1... More

While the resort was breathtakingly gorgeous and our exclusive room with a private pool was the highlight of our vacay, the food was not good at all. When I say not good, I mean bordering on disgusting. The pizza was average and so we lived off of pizza for 5 days. My fiance and I loved the place, all the... More

Our room looked updated, was spacious, and had normal wear and tear. I would recommend a pool view on the top floor. We were in villa 38 and thought it was a good location in between everything.
