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.

The bathtub in our room leaked. I called the desk and they sent a repair man. We waited an hour for him to show up and tell us he'd have to remove the tub the next day, but that he'd get someone to mop the floor. The hotel would not move us and said the resort was full. After dinner, there was more water outside and inside our room. I called the desk and waited an hour with nobody showing up. I went to the desk again and explained that we couldn't stay in the room and that we had to move. They found us a room, but it was 5 or 6 hours after the original leak. We packed at 11:30 at night to move. We felt a resort claiming high service should have been willing to act sooner and act more concerned about our comfort. By the way, the room we moved to also had a bathtub problem, the water lever was broken and water sprayed everywhere. That was another call to the desk, waiting an hour for a repairman that didn't show and another trip to the front desk. It was fixed shortly after we got back from dinner. The resort did send us a bottle of champagne and fresh fruit the next night. The rest of the resort was wonderful, but we felt like we wasted a night and part of another night dealing with problems that the resort didn't take too seriously.

We have stayed at the Catalonia 3 times. This is the first time on the adults only side, which we loved! Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Golf was great and challenging. We travel with a disabled friend and the staff were very helpful and friendly and accommodating. The beach has a handicap accessible walkway now!! The staff work hard to keep the beach clean and safe. The food choices were much improved. We loved the Catalonia Royal Bavaro!

Nice facility with great staff, good food and nice sandy beach.

This was our second time there. Check in and check out most efficient. Everything was ready so no waiting at all. Entire staff As we belong to the Exclusive Travelers Club we had attentive service from our concierge, Laura and our butler, Younaris (Joe) who took good care of us. The food was very good in all the various restaurants we tired during our one week stay, including the romantic dinner on the beach where everything was cooked to perfection. Our daily lunch stop was at the Sorrento Pizzeria near the pool where Lionel had our refreshments ready as we sat down. The salads were refreshing and the pizza’s where as close to real Napolitan pizzas we’ve ever tasted. Great beach with plenty of chairs, although my wife feels there could be a few more paraguas / sombrello ( straw beach umbrellas). Beach was cleaned daily and only a small and acceptable amount of seaweed. After all people must remember it is the ocean. Gladys came around regularly to make sure we kept ourselves properly hydrated and shed also worked the Juice bar located on the beach where they made refreshing non-alcoholic beverages. Pools are plentiful on the resort and very clean so plenty of option and room for everyone. Our room in Villa 36 was well appointed, well stocked and centrally located which was convenient. Would certainly recommend and look forward to our next visit. John & Lynn

Good for the price.

The air was not great at any of the restaurant or rooms. The beach is awesome and have great staff. The food was amazing, even the pizza. Downfall is not really an beach view rooms as it is in a rectangle.

Everything was as advertised. No hidden cost. Good choices of food and drinks. Weather fantastic. Staff worked all the time to keep the place clean and organized. Beach was a little small, but plenty of room for everyone. Beach chairs and pool side chairs filled up quick. Pool bar was great. Carlos (bartender) kept every thing light all the time.

Great Trip

Staff were provided friendly and efficient service. All aspects of the resort were enjoyable. The addition of nightly entertainment outside the patio bar(since our last visit) was very good and provided great background to have a nightly refreshment.

Everything was excellent except for being too chilled at night, even with A/C off, most meat at different restaurants was very rare and the food prepared for the wedding ceremony was sitting in the sun with flies landing on it. The meat at the reception was also too rare. The staff at our own hotel lobby restaurant was by far the best service in the whole resort and made up for everything else. It was a lovely resort for our small group.
