Vacation

Overall we had a wonderful time

DALE WILLIAMS25-02-20

Very good experience

The food was excellent. The room was very good except the air conditioning was not working probably and the telephone. We asked for it to be repaired but it was not before we left. The service could be better at some of the restaurant and some of your staff are missing a nice smile on their faces. We had excellent service on the beach from Santa. She is very thoughtful and very nice.

Fifth and last

Our fifth visit to this resort, far from the best and definitely our last. My wife and I both got food poisoning eating at Yuca restaurant. But that's not the reason for the mediocre rating. That could happen anywhere, I suppose. Although it's never happened to either of us before. As an aside, one sign of a good relationship is that you can both spend eight hours projectile vomiting into one toilet and not get on each other's nerves. Maybe the reason for the rating is that I slept poorly the first night because of the thin pillow provided and had to call four times the next day before another was delivered. Or maybe it was because the next night we decided to order room service. An hour and fifteen minutes later we gave up, got dressed and went to one of the restaurants. On both occasions the staff seemed much more concerned with making sure the complaint was not escalated than solving our problem. I was told the resort has a new GM (Mariana Panizzi). Sounds like she is over her head. Maybe ithe reason for the rating was the smelly old diesel Massey Ferguson tractor going up and down the beach every hour or two collecting seaweed. So why did I give the Royal Bavaro 3 stars? Because despite our experience the staff deserve 5 stars. Housekeeping was fantastic. Restaurant and bar staff were delightful. If you go please tip. They work long hard hours, separated from their families for weeks at a time, and never let it show.

Royal Bavero

We found it quiet, almost geriatric for an adult's only. The swim up bar was nice... quiet , definitely not a party place. The other quiet pool was a place to relax if you needed more quiet. Oliver and his couple helpers added a bit of excitement. Beach party really should be on the beach...as other resorts do. Rooms were clean, as the resort was. Piano bar was a great place but midnight isn't late, so kinda early to close...when we are on vacation we axpect to stay up later. We can stay up late watch tv at home just saying. The family sister resort had more to offer and cost less

Fabulous week at Catalonia Royal Bavaro

My wife and I had a fabulous week. Really enjoyed the service food and location. Only complaint was that we had to come home

A week of r & r

He had a great week at the resort. Everyone was friendly and would go out of their way to help you Would like to make a special mention of Monica at the dive shack. One of our friends had an incident with a jellyfish and she was a pro. She took control, acted professionally and kept not only our friend calm but the rest of us also.

SHELLEY ONDUSKO24-02-20

8/ 10VERY GOOD

Overall, we had a great time - but ----

I would like to see no smoking on the balconies of the units. My neighbors smoke blew straight into our unit and it was obnoxious. They also decided to bring a radio with them, and had that out there blaring in the afternoons, just when i had my snooze. There should be notices about this. Then there was always 'The Towel Thing'. People seem to think they can get up in the middle of the night, place a towel on a lounger sun chair, then it's theirs for the whole day, whether they use it or not. It's very annoying to go to the pool and see 80% of the chairs not being used, and nowhere for me to sit. I would suggest that the chairs are allocated to guests for 4 hour periods, say 9am-1pm and 1pm to 5pm. You book them in advance. Then bolt them to the floor. I hardly got the chance to sit around the pool in the entire 10 days I spent there. The meals were wonderful, except for the steak. It was awful. Everyone I saw eating it was feeding it to a lovely dog, who obviously knew when steak was available. The staff were exceptional, friendly and helpful. The chairs in the units had low backs and were very uncomfortable, difficult to get out of when you ave a bit of arthritis.

MICHAEL JAMES CASWELL24-02-20

Very beautiful and quiet site

Very beautiful, very quiet, excellent service, nice beach with white sand, lots of chair at the beach, nice clean room but not enough towels for the beach and food was average.

Relaxing week-long vacation

A trip to Punta Cana was just what we needed to get away from the cold New York weather in February. Catalonia Royal Bavaro was clean, our room was spacious (hot tub inside and hammock on the balcony!), the staff was very helpful and respectful. We didn't repeat a single restaurant during our stay there because there were just so many options. The pool bar, beach bar, and lobby bar had great vibes and great variety of drinks.

TARANG RAJIVE JAIN24-02-20

First Timers

This was our first time in Punta Cana so we have no previous experiences to compare this to. Yet it's hard to imagine how this could have been a better vacation, other than lengthening our stay. It definitely surpassed our expectations, and while I could come up with minor improvements (e.g. getting change to tip the staff wasn't always easy), in every meaningful way this was a great vacation and a very recommendable resort.

Great vacation. Friendly polite staff. Food was good but after 2 weeks, menus were repetitive.

VALERIE ROSS24-02-20

Beautiful resort

The accommodations and service were wonderful. The food was mostly good. They seem to have a problem with keeping food warm, but all in all, good. The sand at the beach feels like flour on your feet!

The perfect adult retreat

My husband and I absolutely loved staying at this beautiful hotel. It was on the smaller side but it was beautiful and just the calming atmosphere we were looking for.

Our ninth stay at Catalonia Royal

We've been in DR every spring and some summers for the past 25 years. The last 9 times (including Febr 2020 ) we went to Catalonia Royal. Not because it is the best, the cheapest, the most expensive or the most most...etc. We go there because it feels homey, the staff is amazing, the food is great and most of all it feels like nothing changed since last time we were there or from first time we were there. There is that stability that we like. Yes the constantly improve one thing of another but the big picture is the same. Same guy in the piano bar, same people at front desk, same (happy ppl). I asked if they are happy with the management. They said yes. They love working here and they get courses to improve their English language and other skills. We also met many other guests that feel like us. In fact apparently they have a 40% or so return rate. Wow. That tells me a lot. We go other places too but once a year- February or March is Punta Cana Catalonia Royal.

A wonderful vacation

We loved the hotel. The palm trees on the beach were so nice for shade, not just umbrellas. It was very relaxing, food was delicious, gorgeous resort, and everyone was very nice. Our favourite hotel in the Caribbean.

First time stay

We were extremely impressed with our first time trip to Punta Cana at the Catalonia. Check in was a quick process, room was very clean with tons of amenities. Food was fantastic as well as drinks!! All the staff we had encounters with were amazing!!! Very friendly, joked a lot, and very accommodating. We didn’t have hot water for the first two days in our shower, but rest of the week was fine. The resort was very small, quaint, relaxing and very enjoyable. Loved the fact it wasn’t a crazy party scene with party kids everywhere. We will definitely be coming back to this resort!!! Thank you for everything.

Best vacation we ever had

This is the first time we stayed at an adult only resort and we loved everything about it. The whole place was kept very clean, our room was amazing very spacious, clean & comfortable . The food was spectacular . We ate at a few different buffets and a few a la carte restaurants and we enjoyed every dining experience we had . We loved the pool area and used the shaded cabanas quite a bit . The beach was beautfiul and we did some swimming as well . Loved the smoothie bar on the beach. The staff were always helpful and friendly. We cant wait to go back next year!

Feb 2020 at Royal Bavaro

Resort exceeded our expectations. Our room was excellent and we never had a meal that we did not enjoy and we tried all the restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was superb. Although it was a bit windy there was ample opportunity to choose a location to enjoy the sun. The golf course onsite was great and walking the beach was fun every day.

our stay week of Feb 4th 2020

-service was great, staff was great -Beach towel stand did not have towels when we went the first day until a few hours later -room was the same as the 4 star resort beside it, thought there might be a difference as this was a 5 star resort -the big tub leaked, couldn't use it -the Marivolosso section had some great seats at the beach no one could use, so the regular folks had to search for chairs when there was no one in those seats... maybe put less of them and more for the regular vacationers. -Food was fantastic. -the drinks were great, we are from Canada so they had some very good brands we are familiar with.... expect the rye.... my husband drinks rye and they only had Canadian club once and ran out..... for a five star resort they should have more "RYE" options... You have lots of whisky/bourbon options but its not the same. -the pop at the bars too were fountain so very watery once you add the ice, pop in the rooms were great.
