This was my first all inclusive and I was pleasantly surprised . Being a foodie I thought I would be disappointed but instead found the food quality was good . They had premiere liquors for any type of drink and the drinks were made well. Plan to go back.

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at.
HALISA K.

To start this was a bachelorette party trip with 12 girls total. Everything was gorgeous and very clean but the service and food were probably the worst I have ever experienced. This was my 4th trip to DR and I have never experienced service like this. We were insulted by the staff on a daily basis. We had a few girls with us that were fluent in Spanish and they understood the waiters and waitresses who were consistently insulting us, making fun of us, etc. During dinner one night our waiter kept making jokes then asked each of us a question in Spanish to see how fluent we were. Later as he was serving he responded to one of the girls saying "don't eat too much so you don't get fatter." She understood him, called him out, and he laughed at her and thought it was funny. The girl that was insulted spent the night crying and feeling completely uncomfortable staying at this resort- not something you'd expect on vacation or anywhere. Multiple times we would ask someone a question and we would get a blank stare and have them walk away. I understand that not everyone was a fluent English speaker in the hotel but we got 0 effort from them in trying to understand us or help us. There were of course a few people that were extremely helpful and kind but that was rare. We were told multiple times that weren't able to make reservations to restaurants so we would go to a restaurant for dinner and get turned back because "our group was too big" or they were already booked for the night - yet they don't take reservations. Overall, the food was unappetizing and very unsatisfying. The buffets were very picked through, birds were all over the food, and the staff was unhelpful as usual. The steakhouse tasted good but 5 of the girls were sick the next morning from it. As someone who regularly travels to DR, Mexico, etc. and has stayed at multiple all inclusive resorts this is by far the worst experience I have ever had. I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have stayed at several different hotels in Punta Cana, this was Adult only which was a nice option, but as far as the hotel itself it was just average. We did not use the beach at all this time, too much seaweed - and no waves like the ocean normally has. Very disappointed.

This resort still has many fine qualities, but we could tell that some quality has slipped. Our room, the food, the drinks, the bartenders, and the dinner service were all excellent. Some things we didn't like were that 3 out of our 5 lunches we had very poor service at lunch with extreme waits or no service at all until we complained. Also, we stay up late and sleep late. We could not get a clean beach towel around noon or later. They need to buy more towels if they can only provide them in the morning. It is still a good resort, but it does not have the service in all areas that it used to have. This was our fourth trip to this resort.

My wife and I stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro Royal and we happy with the many changes made since we were last there 10 years ago. The additional restaurants offered more choices and quality food. The infinity pool was great! In the bars for the Royal section, you had to ask for the upscale liquor or you were served the poor quality stuff. We incurred a lot of extra charges from Frontier Airlines on the flight to and from because of their policies about luggage and carry on bags. They did not even offer a cup of water to us on the flight home.

As soon as you check in another company matter of fact informs you there is a breakfast for Priority members being held the next day at The Pearls Club. You are also told it here is a total of one hour presentation including g a tourof the place. NOT TRUE !! We were there over 3 hours until I walked out. We wasted almost a half day on this trash. We were lead to believe this welcome breakfast was part of our package. Anyone who goes to this resort should be aware of what this welcome breakfast is and just say NO.

It was good. Not enough night activities and not the adult only section catered more for the older clientele rather than a younger crowd as everything was very quiet and chilled, not a lot of excitement.

Great holiday!

I had a 10 night holiday to this resort at the start of January and enjoyed every moment of it! We paid for an upgraded room which personally I don’t think is worth doing as the differences are minor. The rooms were big and spacious with good air con and good black out curtains. One complaint is that the bathroom had terrible lighting and very often the cold tap on the shower wouldn’t work meaning we couldn’t shower when we wanted. There’s two pools, one quiet and the other with a swim up bar and music. There’s also a large family pool located on the other resort that we could use. We used to get to the pool at about 9am and beds were usually all taken, some remained unused for hours just with peoples towels sitting on them- this is definitely something the hotel needs to look into as it’s very frustrating for those wanting to use the pool. Food was good all over the resort, we used all the different buffets and tried out all the different restaurants aswell. The tapas was our favourite meal. There’s a good selection of meals for vegetarians in all the restaurants and usually a fish option aswell. Staff were friendly all over the resort and the entertainment team were excellent. English skills of some staff could have been better as we were sometimes met with a blank look ordering the most simple of drinks. Overall a good stay, I would definitely return to this resort!

Lovely holiday

We visited here again from the UK in December 2018 for 2 weeks. We had asked for a renovated room overlooking the pool but were assigned an unrenovated one. We had problems with this room, lots of things didn't work, and we were moved. by a very helpful Enrique, to a renovated room 4048 overlooking the sister resort. We enjoyed our stay very much and had lovely weather throughout. There was quite a bit of seaweed in front of the hotel which was cleared daily. There was a lot of seaweed further up the beach which made walks a bit difficult. The grounds, flowers and wildlife were beautiful especially at the wildlife lakes at the sister resort. We found the food in general to be very good. Choices at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Thalassa restaurant at lunch changed the menu daily which gave a lot of variety and Martha was always very happy to see us. In the evening we especially enjoyed sitting at the Barcelona bar, being served always by Andy, and listening to the live music. Our favourite a la carte was the Cata Tapa, tapas, restaurant where Jean looked after us royally. We met lots of people and felt the mix of guests was just right. The only thing that we felt could be improved was that there were lots of people smoking everywhere in all outside areas, including the restaurants, which spoilt things quite a bit. We would suggest the hotel adopt policies to restrict smoking to certain areas only, so that we who don't smoke can also sit outside. Despite this we can't wait to go back and hope to see everyone again soon. Dave and Juanita Robinson

We loved our vacation!!!!

We found the resort to be beautiful and well kept. The staff was amazing. From the beach bar to the restaurants, the staff was always kind, considerate, friendly and happy to serve us. The resort was not overcrowded with people. We did not go to any of the activities or shows that were on the family side of the resort, we were content with the surroundings at the adult side of the resort.

FUN in SUN.
