Lovely Resort with EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE!

My two girlfriends and I stayed at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro recently for a week long Girls Trip mid June. We were highly impressed with the service here! Upon arrival to Punta Cana we didn't plan to spend much time at the resort as we wanted to venture off and see the island but by the end of our stay we all were wishing we had spent a little more time lounging on the beautiful beaches beds and taking advantage of the activities offered on site. Jorge, the manager was incredibly sweet and made sure we were always taken care of. Daniel and Juan both catered to our every need at the beach bar and on several instances even provided an awesome show for us! Kendi at sea blue made us awesome drinks and Gladys at the pool bar was constantly checking in on us to make sure our glasses were full. Omar, Deivi, Sergio and Eric in the front lobby also provided exceptional service! We fell in love with the resort and the staff here! So much so that we have already started planning to return next year! Not to mention, we met several other tourists who told us that the Catalonia Royal was one of the only resorts they have ever returned to! One man we met had been returning to the resort for over 14 years! The entire staff as a whole were incredibly warm and friendly! The food was wonderful. My only complaint would be on the room service which truly wasn't even that bad, not to mention we ordered it at very late hours of the night. Pearl Beach Club was a riot! Jorge, Juan and Daniel were the best!Needless to say, we could not have chosen a better destination for our girls trip! We will definitely be back! More>

Great Visit!!

We had a wonderful trip to the Dominican Republic this June! The hotel is really nice and the staff is great! We especially enjoyed the pool staff. Wilfran the pool concierge was so great! We had fun playing poolside Bingo! Gregory the towel man was also so gracious and I highly recommend visiting this hotel! More>

This place is amazing. I have never been to Punta Cana, or even an all-inclusive resort, but I don't see how it can get much better than this. I have never experienced staff quite like those at Catalonia. Every single staff member that we spoke to went above and beyond to make our stay extraordinary. We were checked in by Sergio who instantly made us feel right at home. Sergio was so helpful with answering all of our questions that we had regarding our stay. Down at the beach bar, Daniel and Juan took great care of us. Jorge, one of the general managers, was so helpful and welcoming. His kindness and hospitality was so appreciated. All of the restaurants on the Royal side were delicious. The breakfast buffet has a wide assortment to choose from and stays well stocked. We never had a bad meal on the Royal side of the resort and there is plenty to choose from. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing getaway. Everything was top notch and we cannot wait to return. More>

Loved our stay

I just returned from a weeklong stay at the Catalonia Royal and loved every second of it. I was very anxious before going due to some reviews I read but I am happy to say there was nothing to be anxious about. The resort is about a 20 minute drive from the airport. Check-in went smoothly, we checked in quickly, but our room wasn't ready so we went to the restaurant located right near check in for lunch and a drink and by the time we finished our room was ready to go. The room: We stayed in one of the Junior Superior Suites located right near the pool with the swim up bar. The room was great, very clean, did not smell musty, we had hot water every time we showered (as some other reviews have mentioned) and the AC worked great (again mentioned in other reviews). We left a $5 tip the first night for our house keeping attendant and had great services all week. The pools: 1) the swim up bar pool- this is a fun/lively pool with music and usually a rowdier crowd. We loved this pool, the built in lounge chairs, and the drink service all around the pool. 2) the infinity pool- located right near the beach with a beautiful view. This bar had THE BEST frozen drinks on the whole resort. This was a quieter/ more relaxing pool. The beach: The water was warm and clear but there were definitely patches that had a lot of sea weed. The whole beach had these tiki huts that had 2 chairs and a table (plus a hook for you bag/clothes). This was great and enabled us to move in and out of the sun when we wanted shade. There was cocktail service along the beach or you could walk over to the bar and grab a drink and some fresh made beach side sushi. The beach also had massage huts. These were super relaxing as you just hear the waves crashing and feel the ocean breeze; however it was not the best massage. The food: avoid the family side restaurants with the exception of Yuka. The steakhouse was cheezy Americana themed and felt like an Okie Dokie. The Mediterranean Restaurant: (located in the main building) this is by far the best breakfast buffet. We went to the buffet on the family side and it was a waste of time. This buffet had great omelets (with a minimal line), fresh fruit, smoked salmon, pastries, pancakes, crepes, French toast, mimosa bar and bloody mary bar. Their lunch is so-so. Their dinner is phenomenal! Try the grouper. Tapas (located on the adults only side)- we loved this spot so much we actually went twice. They suggest you pick 3 plates per person so you get to try a wide range of offerings. The service was best here. For lunch we stuck to the sushi at the beach of the outdoor restaurant by the infinity pool. The casino was fun but small. They had poker tables but they were never open. It was mainly a roulette table, a black jack table, and slots. The mosquitos are not as problematic as I anticipated. I am a person that usually gets eaten alive (I mean 20 bites after a night outside) but I only got about 6 the whole trip. So far I feel fine! Service is slower than I am used to (being from NYC) but when on vacation do I really need to rush through a meal anyways? No. Our hammock broke one night (not meant for two people) and they were up to swap it out within 5 minuets of us calling. Their is a slight language barrier but if you're patient with them they will be with you as well. Don't forget to tip! The staff remembers those who take care of them. More>
