2nd time a bust

2nd time to the resort as an upgraded guest. Restaurants were lacking good service (long waits, poor variety), no poolside or beachside drink service. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Won't come back!!

  • Jean Louise M : Stoughton, Wisconsin
Poor service, unreliable utilities, poor communication.

Power outages, very slow service and response from staff, rude staff. Disappointed with the resort. The reviews that we read were misleading. The room was hot due to power outages and air conditioning issues. The food was good and the menus changed daily.

a bit far but travel was worth

Bayahibe is about 1 hour car from airport, but after experience in Punta Cana, all I can say is: Totally recommendable.Nice beach installations, good food, empatic attendance from all services.Front desk and beach bar attendance was a bit unprofessional, but overall service was excellent.Room facilities were very nice and modern. Only minor issue is that in the peak hour, hot water pressure is a bit low.Claimed about that and maintenance staff were in excellent predisposition to solve our problem, which they did in a short time.It is noticable that all staff are working overtime, and given the nature of the service, they seemed a bit tired at times.Will visit again if I go to Rep Dominicana again.

beautiful resort

Not sure where the bad reviews are coming from. This resort is immaculate and beautiful. I am kind of a picky person. I have pretty high standards, especially when I am on vacation. The grounds are immaculate. Our room was very clean. No maintenance issues either. Housekeeping was wonderful, did a great job. The entire staff was wonderful, polite, and made sure we had every thing we needed. Even called a couple of times to see if everything was ok. The service was great every where. The bars, restaurants, spa, everyone was awesome. The food was great, the drink selection was great, the drinks were strong and very good. The beach area and ocean were amazing. I recommend upgrading to privileged. Its not that much more and worth it. People that complain about the language barrier should not go to another country for vacation. we communicated with everyone just fine and we do not speak Spanish. You are in another country for god sake!! Not one single person was EVER rude to us. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy. I guess treat others how you want to be treated. This is not my first stay in the Dominican. Previously I stayed at Dreams and this place was every bit as nice. We are going back next year and will return to Catalonia La Romana. For what you get for the price it can not be beat. Thank you to the resort and staff for making our vacation a great one!!

It was ok.

So we ended up spending $100 from the airport to the hotel and then back again for two people. It is far, about an hour and 30 min. Arrived, the room wasn't ready and the lowest priced room is not what they advertise on the websites. Definitely outdated and the water was so cold. We had to upgrade for $25 a night per person. The next room was better. The main manager was so rude throughout the process. As for the resort- Its small. you get a couple more restaurants with the upgrade of privilege and that made the whole food situation better. The buffet has good breakfast but other than that it is like a college cafeteria. The themed restaurants were good for the most part but i wasn't thrilled about entertainment at the place. It seems like a place for older people to hang out. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Really enjoyed watching the sunset.
