Fabulous Resort

We had a great time at Catalonia Royal Bavaro. The resort is gorgeous and very clean. We tried almost all the restaurants and loved them all. Thalasa was our favorite. The pools were sparkling. And we loved the Foam Party. The staff was great--everyone was friendly and anxious to make sure we were enjoying our vacation.

Best vacation ever! Top notch service, excellent food and beautiful beach.

Top notch service, excellent food and beautiful beach!The staff is very friendly and there are a lot of sports and activities to do during the day, live music during the evening for a romantic time enjoying some Caribbean cocktails. We had a great time trying some new sport experiences like the aero yoga and aqua spinning, it was just great!Martin at the reception was very helpful and kind to accommodate us when we decided to upgrade our standard room to a beautiful Privileged suite, nice decoration and very comfortable bed. It really worth it.I may say the food is delicious starting with breakfast at Thalassa main restaurant with a la carte service and great buffet bar with fresh fruit and juices, omelets and pastries. Waiters are very attentive always taking care of you. Cata Tapas restaurant has a great variety of Spanish tapas like brave potatoes, grilled octopus and paella, this was or favorite! I have to mention also that the pool and beach bars are awesome, they even have a bar that serves fresh fruit juices “Maloo bar”.There is also a great thing about this resort, you can enjoy the facilities at Catalonia Bavaro resort, sister hotel that has a beautiful beach area, great a la carte restaurants for dinning, bars and pool area.Another extra is the Pearl beach club, you can walk 5 mins on the beach to get there or call for a transportation to pick you up at the hotel lobby. This is an international beach club with fancy furniture and great ambience, music, drinks and international cuisine menu. (This is not part of the all-inclusive of the resort, however is a great option to spend a day without going far away from the property). There is a special mixologist that prepares exotic cocktails with local fruits, you get to try them!We would like to thank all the staff of Catalonia Royal Bavaro for making our stay a wonderful holiday! Bell boys, concierges, waiters, chefs, bar tenders, general manager and the rest of the team. We will definitely go back next year amigos! (We have been to other resorts in Punta Cana and this was the best of all).The Spa is also a great place to visit, steam room and sauna and jacuzzi for a relaxing day. We did a couple’s massage and body treatment with Dominican coffee and chocolate, great value.

Punta Cana dissapointment

The hotel is average and not what we expected. It is clean and the team at the property was professional, courteous, and friendly. The beach is good but we got eaten alive by sand fleas and I mean over 100 bites on each of us. We brought bug spray of course because we know there are pests in tropical areas but you need to come prepared and bring the strongest bug spray possible. The excursions were a huge disappointment, if you purchase them ask questions. The buggy rides do not provide goggles, making the day miserable. The snorkeling excursion takes you to a coral reef where you snorkel for 25 to 30 minutes in choppy water then they heard you back on the boat and take you to a beach where you drink and party with other tourists. Not exactly what we thought we were purchasing.
