We are here right now for our third stay, and it is just as good as the last trips! Grounds, room, and beach are impeccable. New washrooms at the beach bar are beautiful, and much brighter than before. We were given a choice of a third floor room in building 38, but after seeing a first floor room in 36'...

I would like to start off that this place is good. The week that I was here nov 20-28 there were quite a bit of mozzies around. So I suggest to bring bug spray. As to the food I think the previous review is over doing it too much. Yes the room service is not the best. The food on...

This was my first time in Dominican Republic and I must say that I was a little dissapointed. 1. Bring bug spray, you will need it. 2. The food was awful, at all of the restaurants. Both a la carte and the buffets. Not sure how anyone could write a review saying the food was anything more than average. I...

I've waited a few days being home before commenting on the resort and our vacation in all fairness - it was a disaster in many respects.

We stayed at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro from Nov 6th - 13th. I hadn't been to Punta Cana in about 8 years, and have been to Varadero Cuba for the past 4 vacations. There continues to be the perception that Cuba doesn't have what Dominican has and I beg to differ. I'll provide my list of pros / cons and...

My fiancé and I travelled to this hotel on November 22 and stayed for a week. We have been to a 5 start Riu in Mexico and 4 star Braco in Jamaica, so we had other places to compare Catalonia to.
