Surprisingly Amazing

We travelled to Catalonia in May 2017. I originally booked the Catalonia Bavaro resort through Groupon, but when I arrived we were upgraded to the Royal Bavaro (adult only) side of the resort. From then on, the next 6 days were absolutely perfect. Our room was clean, the fridge was stocked and when we called for more towels and pillows they were promptly delivered. The pools were not crowded, we could always find chairs in the sun or shade, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the other guests were all so friendly- no doubt a result of the environment. A huge benefit at the Royal Bavaro is the option to eat at any restaurant for any meal. We were expecting to be at a buffet all week, but instead we were able to visit any restaurant, without a reservation and had amazing meals. We dined at the italian, steak, tapas and thai restaurants and each meal was more impressive than the last. The Adult side of the resort is not huge, but that means it's much easier to go from your room to a pool, or restaurant. It never felt crowded either. We did venture to the family side for some drink, a show and dinner, and all were just as enjoyable. There's even room service available at no additional charge. We opted for the excusion to Saona island, booked through Blue Travel in the lobby- and if you don't experience this during your visit you are missing out. It's a long day, but it was our favorite day of the whole trip. A beautiful an fun catamaran trip, BBQ lunch on the island with gorgeous beaches and crystal clear water, and then a speedboat trip to an unbelievable sandbar. We were also impressed at the amount of staff at the resort and how clean everything was. It's truly a beautiful and well taken care of destination. I highly highly recommend the resort as a perfect couple's getaway.

Best ever!

In spite of a few issues with hot water and our room keys, we will return next year. Loved the beach, the pool, all the shops on property, the steak house, the Italian restaurant and the little coffee shop.

Didn't want to go home

This was our 9th consecutive visit to this resort. We can't even think of going anywhere else. We stayed May 8th-May18th. After a short trip from the airport we were given a warm greeting from Juan and Miguel. Smiles and hugs. We had requested a ground floor due to my husband's knees which they gave us. We also received a cool towel and a welcome drink. Our room wasn't quite ready but was a very short wait until our bags were taken to our room. The grounds are well maintained with beautiful landscapes. They work very hard to keep it this way. We aren't really Beach people so I can't really comment on this other than that it is beautiful with plenty of seating and drinks being served as you enjoy the weather and sun. Bars-Plenty with just a short walking distance from each one. Each morning at 10:00 we started our day with a Bloody Mary. If you truly want a good one I definitely would tell you to go to the beach bar and ask for Luis. After our first visit he knew exactly what we wanted and boy were they good. Another good place would be the Sea Blue and ask for Ronny. He also makes a mean Bloody Mary. Carlos and Genoveva at the pool bar always keeps the party going. If you want a very strong but good drink ask Ruddy in the Barcelona. Just ask for his special. The piano bar is a great place for a before or after dinner drink. Room- cleaned everyday by wonderful maids with a turn down service at night. Flowers would decorate our room which was spacious. Coffee maker, mini fridge filled with drinks. If we needed more all we did was ask. Pools-infinity pool by the beach is quiet and laid back. Pool bar has more excitement. Plenty of seating in each location. Restaurants-5 different locations to choose from. The Thalassa serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast buffet has everything you need but you also can order off the menu. Special thanks to Anna Belle, Domingo, Dario, Lionel and Joel. Pizza by the pool is to die for. Omar was great! The only problem is it is hot while you eat. This turns into the Tao Cat for supper serving Asian. Food was fantastic. Only problem was the mosquitoes. They do spray nightly to help. Sea Blue serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. This was our favorite place for lunch. Thanks to Franklin, Cecelia and Nilsa. Cata tapas is just for dinner. It's a tapas restaurant to try a different selection of fine food. Thanks to Enmanuel for great service. We have known him for 8 years and have made him our "son". We love you! You do have access to the other resort with shops and restaurants. We ate at the Yucca and the Italian which were both good. Coffee shop is a great place to relax and enjoy coffee. I big thanks to everyone there for making our stay fun and relaxing. If I missed anyone I'm sorry. Everyone there is friendly. Willing to help with anything.Please make sure you tip! Let them know that you appreciate everything they do. Ruben it was nice to see you back on the Royal side. You do a great job as a manager. One more piece would be to have Luis back from the other side. Thanks again! We will be back for visit number 10!

Small but big

At first I thought the resort was small but had everything we needed. When we found out we could also use the restaurants, pools, etc next door, it doubled everything. The food was great s d the staff was amazing.

Amazing Hotel

Loved the fact that there was a separation of the two resorts. It really helped make the stay more enjoyable. Being able to cross over from the Adults-Only side to the other side to test out the restaurants and bars there was a great perk. The paella served on the beach party was incredible. Highly recommend. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
