Back for 8th time!

We are going back to the Royal for the eighth time this February! We have been to many resorts and the Royal is our very favorite. You will find that very many of the people at this resort come back year after year! The food is very good and the resort also has a great variety of restaurants, which is important as we usually stay for two weeks. The best part is one does not need reservations! A big plus for us! Everything at the resort is within easy walking distance, no need for a trolley. The staff is very accommodating and kind, from Omaira Garcia, the resort director, to your room maid. They work very hard at keeping your vacation great! Top notch! The resort is extremely clean, the staff works very hard at this. The resort has seen a multitude of recent improvements. The pool area has many updates, along with a very nice seating area outside of the Thalassa, the main restaurant, which is great for viewing entertainment in the evening. There is also a new vegetarian restaurant next to the Thalassa. This is generally a rather quiet resort and great for relaxation. They do offer entertainment nightly at the Thalassa or you can go over to the sister resort for nightly "shows". There is also a "pay to play" place next door named The Pearl Beach Club, if you are looking for more"action". The main pool has a swim up bar and great bartenders, especially Carlos and Genoveve. There is a smaller, "quieter" pool next to the Seaside Restaurant on the beach. The beach is quite nice and has a lot of seating, there are some weeds which the staff does a great job of clearing.

Many better places to spend your money...

Sad beach, inconsistnt and poor service, low value for money. Odd mix of people, and staff was either ok, or very disinterested. Food was however quite good. Not at all as advertised, would not go back. Extremely windy.

Beautiful hotel and lovely stay

Perfect for couples looking for a relaxed holiday. The hotel is relaxing and has a quiet atmosphere. Spent most of our time round the pool, the waitresses would come to our sun loungers and take drinks orders and bring them over to us which is always a nice touch. The beach was beautiful and offered loungers and big bean bags to lie on. The breakfast was one of my favourites, great selection from the buffet with lots of fresh juices. I liked that you could order fresh from a menu too which meant I had some delicious omelettes and pancakes during my stay. Lots of different restaurants to choose from. Our favourite was the Tapas place which was amazing. We also visited the Caribbean and American restaurants which are lovely. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Great resort

Great resort. I've been there 4 times. Last visit was December 14-21 2016. Good clean rooms, great food. Great entertainment. Thanks, great thanks. And well trained and organized personal. We would like to give our THANKS to Argelia Lopez. She is amazing, with great care to make everyone fill happy with maximum comfort. Always with a smile even when she's tired. And there was a bartender in the pool bar, Jordan. He was always doing his best (singing and dancing) serving customers. We are all happy with our visit. THANKS.

Lovely stay, lovely hotel

My OH and I booked Bavaro for a fly and flop holiday. We didn't initially book the Catalonia royal but we changed for one reason or another a few days before we travelled and boy and I glad we did!! Adults only gave us a relaxing atmosphere, don't get me wrong, kids need a holiday too but I like it better when they are quiet and not running around like Duracell bunnies. The rooms were spacious and had good facilities, a roomy balcony and comfy bed. The huge bath was wonderful after a day in the beach. They are cleaned daily and what a wonderful job the room staff do! The food... where to start? We had one terrible experience at the steak house (which in on the family side of the hotel) where we had to send something back and it returned in the same state and the service was dreadful. We did however try all of the other al a carte places within the complex and the food and service really was fabulous. Our personal favourites were the Caribbean, Cata Tapa Tapas, the Japanese and the Italian. Probably the best food either of us have had within an AI complex ever. The pools were lovely, the space around both was very well thought out. The beach was great with everything you need nearby and waiter service all day. It was a little small but again being on the adults only side it was so incredibly relaxing. Don't listen to folk saying it's dirty it isn't. It does sometimes look a little cloudy if there has been a storm out to sea and there is a fair bit of seaweed but on a clear day, it's crystal clear and the seaweed clumps together so you don't have to walk through it unless you want to. The staff are all so very helpful, kind and polite, we could not have asked for better. All up for banter, speak good English or try their best to and many speak other languages too such as French, German and Russian, their language capability put us to shame 😂😂 The only downside was that we were advised not to stray too far and where possible take a cab but this can be said for many of the Caribbean islands. We do love to walk around and mix with the locals but that said we did plan to stay horizontal this holiday so it wasn't an issue. I cannot praise this place enough and we will definitely go back again at some point. It's very well managed and very friendly.
