Woww!! Amazing

The hotel was excellent including the food, amazing staff, pool, beach everything. The only part was the room a little small the bathroom area and the air was not getting cold that much. But everything else AMAZING







Beautiful resort, lots of activities and great service staff!

I loved this resort. There’s plenty to do and it’s truly a beautiful place to spend your time. All the employees on the resort are friendly and truly a joy to interact with. Drinks were great, food was good, and the team working so hard in entertainment, bravo. Throughout the week we stayed we had zero issues with staff. 95% of the other guests were great and we made some really great connections with people from all over the world.



Would stay again

The hotel was lovely. The food was nice. Paid for an upgrade, for a bigger room which was lovely. But had a broken shower handle, got the fridge topped up once in the whole 11 days, and only got the coffee and extras filled up twice. Don't even think they changed our bedding either. So some improvements could be made.



2022 Vacation

Wonderful Hotel ... Loved it



Good, not great

The experience here was very nice, 25% of the staff was extremely nice and helpful, then 50% didn’t really make any impact, then the last 25% seemed to hate their jobs. The resort offers some nice amenities, on rainy days, there’s lots of covered spaces to enjoy a cocktail or a meal. The buffet does not require reservations, but the restaurants do and I suggest you set them up at the beginning of your trip. This no one tells you when you check in. The beach was lovely, lots of seating and shade, but also lots of seaweed. There’s shows nightly and they are horrible… lol it’s actual bad entertainment. The food is also 5/10, what else would you expect at an all-inclusive? Same goes for drinks. Granted, I’d go again, but only if I were invited. If I’m visiting, I’d go elsewhere. For the money spent, the resort overall is great. There’s a handful of shops with very little snacks, some clothing, lots of souvenirs. Transportation is offered and there are employees and the main lobby to help you plan excursions and travel while visiting. 6.5/10 overall.

Beautiful resort

We stayed here for a week with our son who’s just under 2 and we loved it. The resort is so well looked after and people are really friendly. Feel so sad that its over already! As our first time to the Caribbean, it couldn’t have been more perfect :) James family



“Accessibly” Friendly

Yes this is a very family friendly all inclusive. And has very good wheelchair accessibility. They have even provided a beach wheelchair that will float in the ocean



Beautiful Resort

Great staff, beautiful grounds,good food, awesome beach. Would like to see coffee offered in the morning closer to the beach.



As allways

We are there in 2005 first time and almost every year and somtimes 2 times a year



Great holiday

Staff very friendly, little disappointing when the key card would stop working, happened twice during our 10 day stay. Was no where near my phone



April 2022

Not enough staff to speak English. Get covid tests for us citizens and the person giving you results doesnt speak english. Not enough signage on the resort.



Stay from 4/22-4/27

The property is beautiful and very well taken care of. The vibe and environment and is fun and welcoming. My main complaint is the service to the room. The staff were very kind but there were days no towels were provided. One day the towels were taken and none were given. I was lucky my fiancé brought one from home to dry off after the shower. We called a few times to have breakfast tray picked up and broken bottle we sweeped up but needed to throw away but nobody came. Our room lock was not working well and we had to ask for a new room key 5-6 times.



Don’t think about it just Book it ..! You won’t regret it

I must say I was a little skeptical because of the negative reviews I read but I must say we were soooo happy with everything! From the food to the room (even tho we did upgrade) which is a decent prize per night.! The pool is beautiful and clean she beach? Forget about it! Gorgeous! Even tho it did rain for must of our stay we were happy to be there! The a la carta restaurants were great! The steak house was 10/10 (besides the super long wait for them to take our order and then the food). Everyone at the premises were super helpful and very nice! I must say I wish you guys were a little more linient with those who have to check out earlier (we had an emergency and had to check out before our actual check out date) and we weren’t given any credit! Besides that I would give this place 9/10 … the night shows are pretty dope as well… the food at the buffet’s can’t complain really! Drinks were also good… we would love to come back this time around with our kids. Is really a BEAUTIFUL Resort’

First impression is important

I can say that we definitely were pleased with our stay at Catalonia resort. It was out very first time here and in an all inclusive resort. I will recommend to anyone, we read reviews on other resorts and we didn’t have salty water in our shower, the food didn’t get us sick, and the service and staff we’re fenomenal!!!! We are definitely coming back to this place.



Family vacation

It was ok and I'd recommend it to someone who's wanting to spend time with family and relaxation.



Catalonia punta cana

Para ser primera vez que me quedo en este hotel puedo decir que mi experiencia fue buena y placentera. Antes de hacer la reservación me di mi tiempo de leer los comentarios y casi me vi en la negación de hacer la reserva pero pensé “mi experiencia no tiene que ser igual “ . Lo que puedo decir a favor es que el hotel es Limpio , las habitaciones estándar son justas y cómodas y limpias . (Nada elegantes) pero justas . Tienen gratis la nevera en la habitación con refrescos , cerveza y agua fría . Lo cual es conveniente. El hotel ofrece shows todos los días en las noches para la familia muy Buenos y divertidos . En el día la picina tiene actividad para los pequeños y más . La comida en las picina también (pizza muy buena ) en el buffet para desayunar , almorzar y cenar la comida es buena y justa no hay muchas opciones pero repito el HOTEL ES LO QUE TU OAGAS . Si eres exigente , de gusto esentricos y delicado este hotel NO es para ti . El área del la playa está bien equipada con muchas sillas y carpas para el sol . Lo que más me gusto es que el hotel playa y Lucina son limpias y ordenada . Lo único malo en mi opinión es que la orilla de la playa tiene mucha Alga y piedra (cosas del océano ) pero los trabajadores hacen el efuerzo de limpiar . Otra cosa que no me incómodo fue los pájaros en el área del buffet es imposible con ellos . Recomiendo alguna estrategia para controlarles . Llegan por comida y se te meten ala meza y te la comen . El staff muy respetuoso y atentos . Por lo demás el hotel es agradable para quedarse . Y como digo es lo que pagaste NO esperes más del hotel si fue cómodo al pagarlo va ser cómodo quedarse . Yo regresaré si es posible por que me gusto . Tiene naturaleza, tiendas de compra , casino , la barra está abierta 24-7 y también la cocina . Las habitaciones tienen balcón y hamaca para descansar mucha naturaleza y palmeras que lo hacen placentero el lugar .

Paradise from March 26 to April 2, 2022

We were once again at the great Catalonia Bavaro Golf Resort after being deprived for 2 1/2 years because of COVID. Reuniting with what we consider as our second family, we cannot express our gratitude enough in sharing moments of pure joy as we reconnected with old friends and made new ones. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Yana who made us feel right at home like the good old days. Yana oversees customer service at the resort. She is friendly, professional, and tended to our every need with a smile. Thank you, Yana. We would also like to thank Kilsy at the pool customer service counter for modifying our restaurant reservation. As we headed to the main lobby bar area, tears started to flow as we met up with Carolina, Maria, Rosario, Sara, Yamelis and Sandy. It felt so good seeing them again and realizing that COVID did not take away our friendship and that our relationships could continue for many years to come. Thanks to all you for making our mornings wonderful with the great coffees you serve us. We would also like to underline the great work of Evencio, Frito and all the gardening staff for taking such good care of the landscaping, the gardens and the wonderful flowers. Without them this resort wouldn't look like the paradise that it is. Our room was amazing, close to the pool area and the beach. Sonia, our room service lady, has a smile that is contagious. Every morning she greeted us with her wonderful smile and asked us if we had any particular needs. Our room was clean, and she always made sure to decorate it with flowers and towel made decorations. Thank you so much Sonia for your devotion as you are now part of our family. At the pool bar, we gladly met up with old friends such as Yohan (Gros Merci), Raidon and Reynaldo (Bonito). We also made new ones such as Felix and Vangelio. Dos mas agua con gaz At the Terrace Tapas & Lounge Spanish restaurant where we were greeted by a smiling Suleika. The service was excellent. This restaurant offers an experience of its own where each person picks three different dishes to share. Not only was the food excellent, but the sharing part had us tasting different dishes. At the Italian Toscana Restaurant, we met up with our good old friend, Juan. The service was excellent as always and so was the meal. Thank you, Juan. We also would like to point out the warm greetings of the manager Janel. At the American themed Rodeo Restaurant, we also met up with our good old friend Carolina. As always, we are greeted with her fabulous smile and her beautiful blue eyes. We would like to underline Martina’s excellent service. She was always attentive to our needs. Thank you, Martina. At the poolside Palapas Restaurant, we met up with our good old friend Karina, recognizing her although she had a mask on and she was far away from us. How good it felt to reunite. We also met up with Carolina and Maria, who are long time family members of ours. Thank you to all the staff at this restaurant where the food and service is excellent. At the El Palmeral Lobby Night Bar you feel a party atmosphere which is filled with warm greetings and smiles. We would like to underline the great service of Yordanis an old-time friend and our new ones José, Leandro (Canadian flag on his tie), Icelia, Isaac and others. At the Curaçao Bar Lounge, we met up with an old time friend Katherine and our new friend Marielba. While taking a picture, a good friend of ours, Miguel Sosa happened to walk by. The atmosphere, the drinks and the service were excellent, thank you all. We must underline the tenacious work under the hot sun of Punta Cana of the animation team. They smile all the time, they are very funny, energetic and encourage us to participate in their well-planned pool side activities. Thank you to all of you for making our pool lounging so enjoyable. Finally, to the management of the Catalonia Resort, we greatly appreciate the addition of the weed fencing which makes our beach experience so much more memorable. We can’t wait to see you all again soon. Marc and Chantale. Montreal, Québec, CANADA



Great but could be Better

I had a great time staying at Catalonia Bavaro Resort, it was my first time there and I was traveling with my wife’s family. The hotel is beautifully decorated and always maintained and very simple layout of where all the rooms and amenities were located. There was a bit of a stumble when getting my wife’s and I room. We were given key cards to an already occupied room to start. They gave us a new room after the mishap but the room they gave us was no better. It had a major leaking issue with the ac unit. After that we were upgraded to the romance room which was very nice. Food was decent I ended up getting food poisoning from the juice bar on the beach at one point. Staff are friendly but most seem to only know limited English making communication hard at times. The shows at night definitely need to be worked on. They weren’t anything amazing and definitely didn’t keep the guests attention for very long. The beach was very beautiful and clean, water was clear for a number of meters even passed the barrier which had a beautiful shallow sand path to water on if your brave enough. The pool was very big and really enjoyable. Overall a great time but definitely need to at least have more staff that can communicate in English.




Great experience great service and people !
