Our Opinion

Catalonia Bavaro is a solid resort, clean and well maintained. The furnishings and interior of the suites are a little outdated. However, many travelers find this a menial issue that did not interfere with their stay. The beach has a lot of seaweed but they do their best to keep it clean. The food is good with lots of selection.

Welcome to the Catalonia Bavaro Beach, Golf & Casino Resort, where you can have a peaceful holiday in a tropical paradise. Especially designed for you to enjoy your stay, the resort's fantastic services and facilities offer plenty of fun including - a golf course, casino, and a wide selection of exquisite restaurants to dine in. Sit back and relax in the hammock on your balcony, at this all Suites resort.

Location: Directly on a majestic palm-fringed beach at Cabeza de Toro, 45 minutes to Higuey, 20 minutes from the airport.

Not Pleasant

This was the worst resort we have ever been toStaff are rudeCould not get beach towels most days and the towels were thin and frayedRoom looked nothing like photos and stunk of moldwe had to walk our luggage to the room without even being told where our room wasNothing special and not worth the money we paid to go here

Outstanding Service by a Dedicated Staff

We encountered some small problems with our initial room. Once reported the staff worked tirelessly to satisfy our needs. Ultimately, we were relocated to an upgraded room, which exceeded our needs and expectations. Our thanks go out to the staff for our wonderful experience, with special thanks to Cristobal De La Cruz.

Fantastic place to get a suntanned!

The Catalonia Beach Bavaro Hotel is a fantastic option amongst the dozens of Hotels in Punta Cana. Service is great, actually people working here are 5*. The hotel gardens and beach is truly amazing and very well kept. Most of rooms need to be refurbished. It is the only less positive point, however very spacious and comfortable even for 4 people. Food is great and available all over. Fantastic coffee by the bar.

Fab hotel fab holiday

I was really worried about going to this hotel after the bad reviews I read but once I got there all the worries went..when we arrived at the hotel we were amazed at how beautiful the hotel was..check in was really quick and a lovely fruit cocktail awaits you for when you arrive..the room is big and spacious with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on you also have a mini fridge which is stocked up daily with water beer coke and 7 up and there is a coffee perculater..the hotel is surrounded by lakes (pools) which have flamingos herons terrapins and is absolutely stunning..the pool is wonderful and they had just finished refurbishing the pool bar which was great the beach was gorgeous with so many sun beds..other reviews complained about seaweed yes there was seaweed but the staff swept up the seaweed and did this a few times a the end of the day it is a beach and you get seaweed it was not a problem..the restaurants were lovely and so much food to choose from but have to say rodeo steak house was the best and we ate there a few times and the best drink was banana mama cocktail you can also get fruit smoothies on the beach and there is a beach bar which do amazing crepes..the entertainment was good the only let down was that the entertainment team seem to focus on more the Spanish and French but everything else from the maids cleaning your room the staff in the restaurants the staff at check in were absolutely wonderful and the Thompson rep Fray was brilliant..overall this holiday was superb the only thing I'm upset about is that I'm not still there.

I don't know know there are so many bad reviews! We had an amazing stay!! Food was the best I've ever had, ALL the a la cartes were outstanding. Staff are friendly, they try with English.. they are Spanish don't forget so they aren't going to speak amazing English!! We were not bothered by one timeshare person, not once! Hotel is absolutely beautiful, the grounds are unbelievable. Yes it rained and flooded in places but when it rains it really rains, they don't have drainage like we do in the UK - they do the best they can. Lots of selection on food and drinks. Prosseco there isn't bad either!! Champagne as they call it. Our room, we did have privileged.. we already had it on our booking if we hadn't I probably would have upgraded to it. Our room itself was absolutely amazing however we did have one of the renovated rooms.. some people we spoke to still had the normal rooms which weren't much different to the standard junior suite. Privileged entitles you to private beach area and private beach bar!! Private areas in the restaurants which is much nicer than the standard areas.. NOT that they are bad! Still well looked after. Later check out, nicer towels and a better room. We also were able to eat at the a la carte restaurants 5 times a week! Instead of 2 if no privileged. The a la carte's are the best I've ever been to, we had starters and mains every night, not one problem with our food always hot and very nice!! The entertainment team were amazing, always in the go, always say hello and get you involved DAY and night! They work really hard as do all the staff in this hotel. Beach is lovely and good for snorkelling! Only fault was the pool, quite dirty especially on our last few days, which is a shame as it's so nice other wise. I would go back to this hotel and loved Punta Cana.. really enjoyed our stay.
