The hotel was perfect our maid kept our room spotless clean in room 4224 and the air conditioner was brilliant the room itself was amazing, the food in all the restaurants was superb we loved Thursday nights seafood buffet but everywhere we ate it truly was gorgeous food. The entire staff work so hard and always have a smile for you may I take this opportunity to thank everyone of you for making our holiday a dream, we will definitely be returning

Beautiful resort. Staff amazing and very attentive. Juan, Omar, and Daniel gave exceptional service at the bar and restaurant. Nelson hooked us up at check in with a nicer room with a plunge pool. Definitely worth it for the price. We enjoyed the pool every morning and afternoon. Liked the extra space in the room.

The best vacation ever.

My stay at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro was nothing less than the best. The service was great, the food was good the rooms were super clean and the weather was beautiful! I will definitely be staying here in the future.

Excellent resort

Everything is great at the resort. the only minor negative comment is about its so called "timeshare" marketing on the first day which could be less aggressive and chasing. Other than its a great resort in a beautiful location with nice amenities and staff.

Catalonia became much worse this year

First of all I want to say that we have been here many times with my wife. We always suggested our friends to visit this hotel. But this year everything turns terrible. My impressions - I will never comeback here and here are few reasons why:1) beach is terrible. The sea grass is destroying it. They try to clean, but impossible to fight against the ocean. There was a mesh which cover the beach from grass, but they release it. And all grass from the ocean is coming to a beach. 2) at the same time, ocean is blooming, so the color of water is green. That happens in august only, so never go here this period.3) hotel is becoming older and older without any renovation. Furniture in the rooms is tired (we leave in house 36), the restaurant furniture is also seems very tired and old. 4) my room window is very very difficult to open, because was damaged before. My small wife cannot open the window at all. 5) our bed is old as well. So there is almost a hole under my back. 6) there is a huge hole in the carpet in the main lobby. How is that possible??? 7) the biggest disappointment this year is food. First of all menu remain the same for many years. Second, they totally cannot cook steaks. It is crazy hard like concrete in the main restaurant and they use to burn it like coal on bbq near the beach. Chicken wings are overcooked as well. Burgers...same sad story - that is beefsteak between two buns with one tomato and one salad. This is it. No sauce, no cucumber, nothing. That is super cheap hamburger from MacDonalds. Paella... it looks like they never tried it in Barcelona. That is rice. Not paella. Lunch menu in the main restaurant is terrible- very few dishes and nothing to eat. Happy that wine remains very good. Cocktails are still not bad. This time all went wrong. I'm so disappointed that even want to change the hotel, but Catalonia do not want return the money or send us to a new hotel. So never return here again untill they renewed the hotel.
