My Happy Place
sulucas, Toronto, Canada
Wed Apr 27 16:00:00 EDT 2016
It has been a year since my last review of the Catalonia [March 2015]. As stated before, this is the place that I choose to go to several times a year to escape the cold, and this is my second trip in 2016. All the many pluses have not changed: the courteous and friendly staff who go out of their way to make your stay memorable , the attention to detail as seen by the beautiful flowers decorating your room each day, the ample seating around both pools and on the beach. There have been some upgrades since my 2015 visit. The grounds around the pool bar have been upgraded and new umbrellas have been added to both pools. Comfortable cushions have been added to the chaises on the beach, and hopefully by the time I return again this year, to all the pool chaises. The Catalonia has increased their selection of delicious foods with the addition of a sushi-bar by the beach and an outdoor vegetarian restaurant [absolutely delicious and I’m not a vegetarian]. Nightly entertainment has been added via live music to accompany your dining experience. And during the days, there are a variety of dance classes, Spanish classes, spinning classes in the pool, yoga, bingo,… But what keeps me coming back are the people. The staff there are bar none! Starting with client services [Yumerlin], check in in the lobby [Yinna], lobby bar [Andy], beach bar [Wander & Daniel], pool bar [Genivieve], and the myriad of wait staff in all the restaurants [too many to name]. It never ceases to amaze me that they all somehow are able to remember not only you, but what you usually like to order, where you like to sit etc. I usually travel solo to the resort, but this time a friend joined me, and concurred that my past descriptions were not exaggerated. The peace and tranquility of the resort, the good food, and amazing staff make this a resort worth returning to [and I will]! More>

Only let down was room service! Poor food and not what was ordered. Staff throughout resort fantastic in every detail .. Yenci, juana, Gladys at the pool bar - really an amazing member of staff who should surely be recognised ... Roberto, all too numerous to name. A great big THANKYOU. Shame the weather was not up to much but you can't have it all ways. The housekeeping staff wonderful - suite picture perfect 3605 overlooking the fountains. Kids ...30 and 28 yrs had 3612 .... Outside look resort room and very dark - not recommended. Always ask for inside suite. More>

My husband and I recently enjoyed a wonderful stay at Catalonia Bavaro Resort in Punta Cana. The food was marvelous as was the cleanliness of the resort and the rooms. We ate at Tao Cat (a Spanish tapas restaurant) twice, both times enjoying the broiled octopus. Dinner at Sorrento was also very pleasant and the steak was exceptionally delicious (aside from the bone in cut). We ventured onto the other property one evening and ate at Yaba (Caribbean) and thoroughly enjoyed the grouper ceviche. We had read rave reviews regarding the vegetarian restaurant. We enjoyed lunch there (homemade humus and a salad). The greens in the salad tasted fresh and were unique, and the humus was fabulous. The breakfast buffet on the other property also offered a variety of options that were tasty. (However, please note the other buffet, located on the other property’s beach, was lacking in taste and selection). I must conclude by sending high praises to several staff members at our resort: Andres, Maria, Yesenia, Pierre and Frank (primarily servicing the area at the Thalassa pool bar)- all went over and beyond to meet our needs and requests on multiple occasions. Andres was exceptionally fun and engaging. *Side note: although stated that gratuity is included; additional tipping is greatly appreciated by the staff and much deserved. -SS More>

Great Resort, Good Food

The room at Royal Bavaro was satisfactory. There was a problem with hot water but everything was clean and beds were comfortable. The grounds and the beach were beautiful. Very comfortable lounge chairs at the beach and the palms offered plenty of shade. I was most impressed with the food. The restaurants were great and offered a good variety. Pizzas at lunch were excellent. This is a great place for a week of good food, plenty of sunshine and relaxation. It is definitely worth staying on the adult side of resort! More>

Even better than our last visit

It was my 4th time at the Royale, 5th time for my wife. As always the service was great, food was always good but had improved from our last stay. There was an issue with the hot water system, the last couple of days there was no hot water but even the cold water was luke warm and we really were not that put out by it. Saw a lot of guests who were quite bent out of shape on the matter but the breakdown occurred over the Easter weekend so, like back home, maybe not easy to get parts and service. Really liked the upgraded pool area behind the lobby in the evenings. Solo artists each night had a very relaxed vibe. Had to get up pretty early for a good spot on the beach but this is a problem in most resorts during high season. New beach loungers are very comfortable, beach service and service every where was excellent.Not sure if there was a problem with the ice machine or the mix but drinks tasted off the first couple of days. Room was clean, fridge very well stocked each day. AC efficiency does vary from room to room but ours was super chilly. Beds could use an upgrade to pillow top. Food was excellent. Lots of choice and lots of beef, good sized servings, great desserts. Service was excellent, no line ups, no waiting for anything. So many great staff, shout out to Roberto and Wander at the beach and Alonzo at the Thalasa. Room could use some updating but you'll not find a better resort in this price range. Well done Catalonia!
