Good and bad

Just returned from Catalonia Royal Bavaro. There were both good and bad points to this resort. The beach was nice and they are making attempts at preventing beach erosion and keeping it cleaned up. Lots of lounge chairs at the beach and plenty of shade spots. The pools were nice, clean, large but lacking in spots for shade. The restaurants on site were about average, nothing to rave about but not disgusting either. Generally the hotel staff were very accommodating . The golf was not "included" as advertised, there was a $45 fee for the cart PER PERSON! That being said, the 9 hole golf course was not crowded, very tropical and overall a lot of fun albeit not in pristine condition. As for the bad....the room was pretty gross and we paid for Privileged so I would hate to see what the regular room looked like. It was huge and that is about the only nice thing I can say about room. We had constant sewer smell unless we plugged the drains. The a/c was super noisy, questionable at best, freeze or roast. The room was musty, stinky and very "worn out" looking. The linens were gross. Rooms need a serious and immediate upgrade, the rest of the resort was quite beautiful. I wouldn't return to this resort, would spend more next time and go to a newer more updated facility.

Great food, scenery

Overall, we had a good experience due to some of the people that we encountered during our stay. I thought the sales pressure from various areas of the hotel for the vacation club, the excursions, and the massages was too much. I think one or more of those items should be scaled back, or limited in some way, or you just need to be better at saying no. The positives were the nice people, the food, and the nice hotel facilities.
