The most amazing place!

This resort was tbe most beautiful and incredible place I've ever been! The staff was so accommodated and nice. I truly felt so special for my birthday and like I was in a place of magic. I cannot wait to go back again



Cant wait to go again

Hotel grounds were beautiful, housekeeping staff excellent! Pool bar staff especially Stanley was amazing. We loved the drinks and pizza at the pool bar. Italian restaurant was our favorite, with the Japanese coming in a close second. Check in was easy. Check out we were told we needed to turn in our towel cards which we didnt know we even had. We were asked to go back to our room ( room 422 a long walk) to retrieve them. We were never told any of this. We had 3 people to the room and on a daily basis 2 out of 3 room keys did not work. Restaurant reservation was a very long hot process. The line was ridiculously long every day, which was alot of wasted vacation time because you were only to book two reservations at a time.



The resort is beautiful

Resort room, food and amenities definitely worth it, the beach wasn’t what I expected though but I definitely enjoyed myself



Clean, fun, good food

We enjoyed our stay, but did not like getting tricked into a sales presentation.



Catalonia Bacaro Beach, Punta Cana

We stayed for 10 days recently at Catalonia Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana. The overall experience was excellent. There were a couple of small issues but they were addressed immediately. We were very satisfied with our stay. We will definitely be back. The only downside was the buffet. We ate at the restaurants on the resort and all of them were pretty good.



My honeymoon

I would like to say I enjoyed myself a lot could use more chairs with umbrellas by the pool and the buffet needs a upgrade it’s sazon! Some items were very cold and extremely bland



Todo muy bueno

Los empleados son super atentos con nosotros, felix runner playa, yohhan, Francisca, carmen, carlos, Estefania, francisco, Hector ,elizabeth, Jessica, Zairy, Zara,Fior, Wilson todos se esmeraron para que nuestras vacaciones fueran de excelencia.



Birthday Trip

The resort was nice. I had a great time overall. I was a little disappointed in the food, I was hoping it would be much better. Many times it felt like things were left under the heating lamp for a long time, so the food never tasted fresh. Also, there were a couple of times I called for room service because I needed ice and no one showed up. Also, before checking out, the front desk called and asked if I needed assistance, which I did because my mom was not able to carry her luggage, again, no one showed after 30 min of waiting.



Experience at Catalonia Bavaro

Great overall experience at Catalonia. The only thing I would change is the long lines!! We spent probably 5 hours in a line during our entire trip. Biggest issue is the line for guest services and reservations, it shouldn’t take me 2 hours in a line to make a dinner reservation




My overall stay at this resort was very good. I paid for the $1700 wedding package so I was given the privileged suite which was really nice. Most of my other guest had air conditioner issues though. The wedding venue was beautiful and I wouldn’t change anything about our wedding. The food at the buffet and snack buffet are horrible, so everyone is trying to get in line at the food concierge which took over an hour to make dinner reservations. Do NOT use your credit card to buy items from the people in the middle of the resort!! They charged $150 extra dollars on my credit card for a cigar purchase.



excellente customer service

excellence customer service specially chinese cook



Very nice vacation

We really enjoyed the holiday at Catalonia Punta Cana!

Catalonia Resort exceptional

I had the best time of my life. Initially I was nervous due to reviews I read. However, we reserved a privileged room and was upgraded to a Romantic room that put us closer to the beach and pool. Thank you. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. I read reviews about the customer service being horrible and after calling to make reservations I agreed because I was told they were sold out and hung the person hung up. However, I went online and was able to make a reservation at one of the other resorts. We were greeted with smiles and everyone was nice. You get more bees with honey and I loved the hospitality I received from the buffet staff and pizza guy and waiter. A special shout out to Felix on the beach. He created a special birthday balloon bouquet for me. My husband tried to tip him and he refused. He just wanted to make my day special. Thank you Felix for making me feel extra special. Now there is a lot of seaweed on the beach but hopefully those that complain will do more to help the environment so this will not ruin the beautiful beaches. Climate change is real and you witness first hand while it may be invisible to you where you live. As for the the food my first day I was not pleased but you will find something you can eat and enjoy as you try different places. I especially loved the spring rolls they had one day in the buffet. They were sooo good. They have an array of selection so you will find something.



Beautiful Property, Average Amenities, Party Crowd

The Catalonia Bavaro Beach is a simply stunning resort. The white-sand beaches bedecked with palm trees, quiet romantic corners, giant resort-style pool, and delicious drinks all exceeded expectations. My boyfriend and I had such a great week relaxing on the Privileged Beach at the amazing Pure Bar, enjoying a dip in the pool, and taking romantic walks around the resort. Where the property fell short, however, was on little details and processes. As a 5-star hotel, we expected a lot. While the Privileged Room was gorgeous (especially the huge bathroom with double sinks and shower!!), we only had two towels in our room at arrival - no hand towels, face cloths - two thin pillows, no robes, no slippers, etc. We had to request all these things, which the staff eventually provided, but there was always something not properly restocked when housekeeping redid the room. We were also a bit disappointed by the COVID closures. All of the unique features of the hotel (swim-up bar, juice bar, creperie) were closed due to COVID, which wasn't advertised anywhere on the website. It was disappointing to arrive and realize some of the things we were most excited for weren't open. The COVID tests, which are free so long as you have a green card/are American and cost $20 if you're not, were a mess. When we showed up for testing, there was no order to the crowd, and people were shouting and swearing at each other. Eventually, a hotel guest stepped up and organized everything. However, we had to go to guest services 3 times to get our results as they were never emailed to us, and we saw many others the morning of their departure who still didn't have results. The food at the restaurants was amazing (Esp the Rodeo Steakhouse), but the buffet food was average and repetitive. I'm also mostly gluten- and dairy-free, which meant I either had to embrace getting sick, or my options were limited. Most importantly, the resort got really crowded on the weekends, and the crowd wasn't really our speed. Lots of large families super into partying, taking videos of themselves singing and getting drunk at the pool, smoking/vaping, etc. This is just personal preference, but I like to go on vacation to relax and enjoy a book at the beach, so I didn't love being surrounded by that atmosphere. One night, a fellow guest was playing loud music at 4am, and we had to call security twice to finally get him to turn it off. While there were a lot of misses on the details, we did overall enjoy our experience here. I personally may have chosen a different resort if I knew the vibe here, but ultimately, the value for money was still incredible. Coming here for one week and getting all of our food/drink included was less than NYC rent, and we got to enjoy the beach and pool every day. Final tip - check to see the seaweed situation in Bavaro Beach before booking! It was fine when we left, but when we arrived, we couldn't enjoy the beach and the smell was awful.



Love Catalonia

Best service! can not wait to go back :)



Yana from customer service

All employees where very professional, but manager Yana took it even a step further and helped us with dealing with a difficult situation. While on vacation our dog was hit by a car back home. We had previously booked an excursion but were unable to go due to us staying up al night trying to get an earlier flight back to the usa. The employee of the excursion company refused to refund the money we had already paid and became very rude. In our desperation we turned to Yana at the hotel and she was able to speak to the company and get the issue resolved.



Great stay even during covid times

I had a great time. The resort was amazing, especially considering its cost. All the employees were amazing and kept the guests well entertained, from guest services to bartenders to entertainment employees. I don't remember all their names, but Coca-cola, Ava, and Leslie are some of them.




We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We loved all of the activities and restaurants. The entire experience was very very relaxing and enjoyable. We had to be moved to another room due to the AC being out. Guest services checked on us several times to assure our new accommodations were sufficient abs we were pleased. We are excited to visit again soon!



Felt like I was in Paradise

This was the beat vacation I had in a very long time. Staff was amazing and very accommodating



Buena atención y comodidad

Excelente hotel, con una área verde hermosa, tranquilo para relajarse y pasarla bien en familia... La cama de la habitación super cómoda... Su comida buena la atención de su personal de servicio todos son muy amable, especialmente Kenia la señora del buffet, sin dudarlo volvería a ir en mi próximas vacaciones.




Nice Beach Spacious room Service poor

Mostly good experience with some lessons for next trip

I had a great time. Celebrated my 41st birthday. I stayed for 5 nights in the lowest price Junior Suite. It was my first time in Punta Cana, and I was travelling solo. Since I didn't intend on being in the room much, I did not upgrade. I would say that the room was clean and served the purpose but showing signs of age, along with other parts of the resort. The toilet was leaking out the bottom and the flush mechanism broke during my stay. The flush strength was poor. I didn't want to spend my vacation fixing a toilet. I let the front desk know and the facilities engineer did replace the handle mechanism but did nothing about the leak. I put a towel on the floor and lived with it for the duration of my stay. Covid safety precautions by staff were adequate. I did not feel like it was too little or too much to navigate. But I would recommend they put a sign on the Covid testing office. Obtaining the Covid test results to get back to US required a little effort on my part. Made multiple visits to Guest Services to see if they received the email. Would have been nice touch if they called, emailed, or delivered the results. I could already see that they were minimally staffed and having to prioritize. The vendors that were allowed to sell items in the resort were a bit pushy at times but understandably so. I did not mind them so much but could see others finding this an issue. The pool was nice but here I would probably have liked to have stayed at Royal adult only side. Non Executive Club member drinks were good but could be improved. The plastic cups seem old. I was not a fan of the pineapple syrup used for drinks, would've preferred fresh. No other beer than Presidente. The food was good. I imagine Covid has impacted their selection and quality. I found something to eat and like at every meal but not so much to love. There was a rum cake I had at Yucca that was my favorite thing there. The steakhouse steaks were a bit tough and food was not hot but I was hungry and ate everything. I did not book this all inclusive with high expectations for the food, so I was not disappointed. Buffet is what you make it. Did not pay much attention to the late night entertainment but could hear the music, and the other guests seemed to enjoy what was offered. The staff friendliness was a huge highlight. Whether it was checking in at the hostess stands or getting information from concierge, Jean Luis, I was always greeted with a smile. The wind was high during my stay so the ocean was not prime for snorkeling but still found it accessible. If I went back to Bavaro Beach, I would stay at Royal adult side and get a better room. After watching some videos of Punta Cana trips during the same week, I would probably look to stay closer to the Caribean Sea side. It seems a bit calmer waters.



I felt so welcomed

My stay was amazing only because of vacation concierges Holando and Dalliance! They very absolutely amazing and made my stay the best as it could possibly be. I will miss those two so much! These gentleman deserve a rise. Also i cant forget about the greatest bartender Isaac. I love Catalonia Bavaro only because of the friendly and kind staff. The made me feel safe, welcomed and created a very special environment.

Tina Tobolová01-04-21



This was my 6th time at Catalonia.Always a great time. The food was very good, all of the workers at the Buffett were so professional. Thank you Brianda for always taking care of us. I stayed in the privlleged delux family suite, our housekeeper was perfect and kept out room very clean. I can;t wait to return. Thanks again everyone who works at catalonia punta cana.



Fun Week

For the most part we had a really nice week! We thought that the resort was gorgeous and drinks were strong! Food was not good and COVID restrictions were frustrating at times. I think those should be put on the website.







My review

My review



your team works hard but majority of the Russian guests act very rude

The Catalonia team works very hard to give guests a good stay but some of yout guestes act as headens and pigs. In particular your russian guests act incredibley rude: - on the beach they order tons of drinks they dont drink. Leave their garbage behind on the beach - with buffet the same. Collect and ask for a lot of food which a large amount goes to the trash can - in public areas such as the pool table they bring speakers and play very hard russian music - and to top it off saw two couples having sex in the spa area at around 21.45 right after the evening shows. On the path were they had sex families with their children would pass after the show
