Our experience (as a family) was wonderful overall. The hotel grounds were meticulously maintained by the friendly staff who seemed to always be working to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The food was the only slight letdown- not enough variety for our personal preferences, however it was still good, and in no way would affect our decision to...

We stayed in this hotel, the ROYAL one, from Dec.17th to Dec. 26th, so we just went back. We really liked the experience, and I would REALLY recommend to anyone to go to the royal (not to the sister property not ROYAL). However, there are a few things about the location you must consider. At the same time, I am...

We loved the Royal Bavaro. My husband and I went for our honeymoon June 26, 2012-July 2, 2012. We had a great time. The food was good, the staff was awesome, and the beaches were great. We would definitely go back!

Staff- treated my girlfriend and I with the utmost respect. Really went along way to satisfy our needs and were very happy and helpful. We tipped at least one dollar for everything and realize that for the long hours they work and the amount they make they really work hard for a living and are worth every dollar. Beach- very...

My husband and I stayed here Dec 12 to 19. Overall, I would recommend this resort. It is a great value 4.5 (Caribbean) star resort, in my opinion (not absolutely worth 5 star, lacked in some areas, but fantastic in most). We were looking for a quiet, adults only place with great beach, comfortable pool/beach lounging chairs, this place delivered....

This was our first time at this resort, was a pretty nice little vacation, but a little too pricey for what we got. The staff were very polite, smiled a lot, but could hardly speak english, The word "yes" was popular. I don't speak a word of Spanish, so when this resort advertised english speaking staff, I think they meant...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Catalonia Royal Bavarro for 10 days in the beginning of December. We are both in our late 20's and enjoyed the relaxing children-free atmosphere that the Royal side had to offer.

The Catalonia Royal Bavaro has all the amenities to make it a fabulous resort, but their execution is just plain lacking. The service is hit or miss. You will either be wow’ed, or super frustrated.
