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 The furnishings and interior of the suites are a little outdated.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.

A perfect hotel

Stayed on the 3rd-17th off October and it was amazing. I would strongly recommend this hotel. The food was all round good, you cant really mess up a buffet. There was enough food and seats for everyone and the waiters proving drinks and working hard non stop. There was a special meat that changes everyday and you theres also 5 or 6 stations that will cook food for you whilst you wait which was excellent.Theres a snack bar which is open till 2am.. amazing for the late night stacks i.e pizza and burgers. 4 la carte restaurants but didnt try them but did book and its very easy too book in you dont have to sit through a 2 hour tomeshare picth just pick a restaurant and you get a time! So simple. The bar was a hit and miss some days it took a while to get a drink some days soon as you finish your drink thr waiter or the bar staff already has your next drink poured! They dont favour to any nationality it basically queue and wait your turn.. which is how it should be! You also get a free bowls off nuts whilst your at the bar as well. The grounds of the hotel was truly spectacular, its worth going for this alone. Free roaming animals and a massive pond rapped around the hotel with fish and turtles. The beach is lovely and must go and see choose this over the pool everyday. Could do with more sun loungers but didnt effect us as was up early. All sun loungers are gone by 10/11 but if you upgrade to privilege your bassicly guraanted one all day. The pool was hlaf closed as they were referbing it. Its needs a full refurb as it veey dirty and people were smoking in the pool. Vile. Once its cleaned it will be amazing. You can smoke pretty much anywhere which needs to be stopped! The entertainment was a drag wouldnt stay up for it.. Thoose few bad points dont make a dint in the hotel as the pro massively outway the cons. Would come back!

Not impressed

The hotel itself is beautiful and so is the beach. The room was old small and in need of repairs. The service was average. Two of the restaurants with air conditioning had none and the other two were impossible to get into. There is no airconditioning in the main dining areas or the bar and it was hot! The pool was under instruction and they ran out of towels in the afternoon.

Great service

My boyfriend and I went there for a friend's wedding and they did an excellent job. The only thing they are improving is the pool. They are building a bigger side which would be great for the near future but as of today the pool doesn't have a lot of room.

Terrible excuse for a resort. Never ever waste your money here. Staff treats you as though they don't want you there and you will be harassed for upsells and purchases the entire time you are there. It is old and in distress and the quality of service provides no insight into ever turning around. Mismanagement everywhere!
