Nice vacation

Considering we are dealing with covid, this trip was wonderful. I like new measures. Not too many people.



Great stay

Had a great time




If this was just about the food, it was very poor. I would not return to this hotel solely based on the food. The space is beautiful. The duplex room with the pool is stunning but the food is horrible at both the golf resort and the adults only. Room service is very limited in options and is just as bad. I stayed at Paradisus last year and the food was AMAZING. So I had high expectations for this resort and was horribly disappointed.



Muy buena atención

Muy bueno el servicio especialmente en el restaurante donde tuvimo muy buena atención por el camarero (Luis) y (Leonel) y su manager (Dario) gracias por su atención y que sean muy bien recompensado por su atención.

Amazing Stay

This resort was amazing. We truly enjoyed ourselves. The food options were very limited though, and not the best. I also did not appreciate that there were a few times where I called room service and asked for something, and it didnt show up. Also I didn't appreciate that there were some issues with the Jacuzzi and the curtains in my room, and rather than offering a different room where the items were fully functional, Maintenance people were sent and removed the technology systems from the room. Also I wrote about this during checkout, but the Doctor on the resort was very rude and unprofessional.



Anniversary and bday celebration

Since the check in it was smooth sailing. The staff from the front desk to the waiters were so nice. The only negative was that the check out process took a while to be seen. I suggest more staff depending on the people that will be checking out. I waited in line for almost an hour. Besides that all was top notch.

Great resort

I would give this place 4 stars. We loved the food! It was always delicious and there was always a good variety. The room was pretty nice (private pool two story room). The private pool was the best part! I didn’t like that they didn’t walk us to our room as soon as we finished checking in. We had to wait several minutes before someone came by to take us to our room. The workers were amazing about wearing masks but honestly not many of the guests wore them. If you’re super nervous about COVID, I would continue to avoid the resort for a few more months. The beach was dirty with seaweed and I saw no efforts to clear it. But it’s also the season for high seaweed so it wasn’t a big surprise. Overall, I liked the resort a lot and I would return!! I recommend staying during the week and staying on the adults only side. There are wild kids running and screaming all over the over side of the resort.



Amazing place, great vibes, superb service

I stayed at Catalonia Royal for 10 days with my partner. I was amazed about the openness of this place. Definitely the 'adults only' place where you meet other cool people, grab nice drinks. The pools are very nice, the rooms are too. Food is great and the service is super friendly. Specially Nilsa, Cecilia and Beatriz! I would go back anytime! The beach is not the best in Punta Cana, but the rest makes it up for that..



My review

Had a very pleasant but far to short stay at the Catalonia Royal. Excellent service and a beautiful setup. Great food. Friendly and helpful staff.



Catalonia Royal 5th Anniversary Celebration

We had a nice relaxing time




El hotel esta en buenas condiciones. La playa como tal no esta buena pero los alrededores estan bien mantenidos y limpios.

Great resort, great price, great food

First trip to Punta Cana. The Catalonia Royal Bavaro is as portrayed on the website. We were there at the height of COVID, so there was low occupancy and some of the activities (watersports) were not available. But for me, the low occupancy more than made up for the reduced activities. Food was excellent at all of the restaurants, and the services was outstanding. My only suggestion for improvement would be to the housekeeping, to be sure to leave new towels for the beach/pool each day.



Trip during pandemic

Overall, experience was wonderful. A few issues with room. First night was too close to people blasting music all night and second room smelled like mildew. But place was very clean. Pools, restaurants, bars and beach were almost empty. Food was ok but beverages were excellent. Alcohol didn’t taste watered down as opposed to last trip to the DR at another resort. Staff was very attentive. Beach had a lot of seaweed and not very pretty by the adults side. But by the family side, there was a beautiful coral reef with a channel that allowed you to walk a mile off shore through crystal clear water. We spent hours out there sunbathing and enjoying the view. Would definitely go back and felt very safe in regards to Covid.

A relaxing time during a tricky time

This was definitely a different experience from previous Catalonia vacations. Definitely less in terms of activities and entertainment, but given the pandemic, I think the team did the best they could with what they had. Everything was clean. Social distancing was observed. Face masks were worn etc. Overall a good experience at a beautiful place.



Solo traveler

Had an amazing time staying here during my solo trip. Felt safe, the food was great and the environment was what I need.

Jewel in Paradise! Nice to be there again! It was our 4th visit.

Just returned home from this beautiful place and already want to go back! This trip to Catalonia Royal Bavaro was not planned, we were transferred here after we learned that Catalonia Royal La Romana wasn’t going to open on time for our trip, due to COVID. Did not regret even a little bit! We met lots of old friends from our previous visits to DR Catalonia Resorts. The Hotel is very clean, food is great, weather was perfect! The only thing you may not like, is the beach - due to no tourist traffic on the beach for the past 4 months, the bottom of the ocean has some weeds, that can be easily removed with your feet. We really enjoyed every day of our stay! Thank you, Catalonia friends! Hope to see you again!



Great Hotel

Loved it!



Great Experience

-I truly enjoyed my time at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro resort. It was a great place to be with my financé and we had a great time. The quality of the food and service are truly impressive. -The beach is the only drawback because of the seeweed/algea but this is not under your control. We went 2 days at the Macao Beach which is an amazing beach. -Loved the Private / Priveledge Duplex with private Infinity Pool. As the electricity in the Duplex was mostly the 220 Volts, the 2 round pronged outlets, it was difficult to plug anything of our things (cell phones etc...). There was only one available North American outlet 110v but many 220v. You should have available converters for your guest as this is the first hotel I stay in the Dominican which has these European outlets.



Beautiful Resort, Beautiful Memories

We arrived on July 9th and the resort had just opened on July 1st like much of the the island. We were greeted at the check-in desk with fresh cocktails and decided to grab a quick lunch. They have both indoor and outdoor seating and their menu selection included an appetizer, main course and dessert selection along with wine, beer or other cocktails. During check-in we were offered an option to upgrade to a two-story villa with a private pool. While having our lunch, we decided to upgrade and after finishing, we were escorted with our luggage in a golf cart to our villa. The villa was spectacular, large and you walk through the sliders to your private patio and swimming pool with an infinity edge (the water was perfect). After relaxing for a bit, we got in our rental car to meet friends who were staying at the Hard Rock. We picked them up and drove to a local restaurant on the beach called Captain Cook. Speak with Oriel, the owners son and tell him David from Miami recommended his restaurant, he will treat you wonderfully. They have an amazing selection of fresh seafood and we ordered four lobsters and a four pound snapper. The food was cooked on an open grill and this was some of the best seafood we have ever eaten. Oriel arranged for our group to charter a private boat for the next day and they prepared a small seafood tray of fresh shrimp, snapper and crab claws. The boat trip was amazing, alcohol was included and we stayed out approximately three hours on the water. For the remainder of our time, we stayed at the resort and enjoyed all the amenities, the food, the drinks, the wonderful people! They keep the property in pristine condition and the atmosphere is total relaxation. They have a beautiful bar and area to relax on the beach, and though no fault of the hotel, this stretch of beach is not the best in the area, but there are many places close by to relax in the ocean.



Amazing service!

Everyone was always so ready to ask us if we needed help, if everything was going well, and what they could do to make our stay better. And they all seemed genuinely sad to see us leave! We definitely we sad to go, but this place will stay on our list of places we HAVE to come back to!

Me encanto!!

Todo estuvo bueno, dentro de la situación que estamos viviendo con el covid-19. Solo tuve un detalle y por eso califique como muy bueno y no excelente. El detalle fue que escogí una habitación con piscina privada (suite duplex privilege) y la piscina no estuvo disponible ese primer dia por que la estaban llenando. Entiendo que si ya tenía una reservación debieron haber llenado la piscina con anticipación. Solo ese detalle, todo lo demas estuvo excelente.

Catalonia royals bavaro

Fifth visit and still loved it



My experience

Un general very nice hotel and very clean, personnel very nice



3rd time back and won’t be our last

We have been to this resort two other times and enjoyed this time just as much. The food is amazing, staff is friendly, rooms are clean and spacious. We do find the beach swimming to have quite a lot of coral - bring your swimming shoes if this may bother you. We love the live music at night time, as well as how many activities are always going on throughout the resort- there’s something for everyone. We enjoy every restaurant here and staff is very involved to make your stay great.



Had a very relaxing time at this well maintained adults only resort.

The resort was very clean and the grounds were well kept. The staff were attentive and pleasant and the food and entertainment were good. We never had to line up for a restaurant except at the adjoining family resort. We never ventured off again and just stuck to the adults only resort. The beach didn't disappoint except for the large amount of Sargasso that washed up every day on the shore. I think that this could have been cleared more than it was. Aside from that it was always easy to find a Bali bed or chair. We will return.



Great Holiday before Covid19

Had a great time at the resort. Loved the adult only side but not the other (way to busy). Food was good, bars not busy. Only frustration is people reserving chairs near the pools and then not using them.



great people beautiful grounds

Most of the vacationers were Canadian at "Punta Canada". Fun loving and friendly people made the trip very enjoyable. We stayed on the adult side since at our age Disney World days are far behind us. In many of the other reviews they mention that topless was allowed and even called before and after we made our reservation. No one was topless at the pool for our 7 days but we did see a topless bather on the crowded beach face down. We live however and had a great time. Don't do the presentation for the club. We did it so the person would get $10 and I figured that was a lot for him and would help. We were promised a massage and be only 90 minutes. #hrs later we walked out with a voucher for a 2 minute massage, plus we tipped $20. Stay at the pool and drink with the Canadians.



Please stop overbooking.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We have been there 3 times. Our only concern is the overbooking that ocvurs. We had to hnge rooms on day 2. Two other couples that were with us also had to change rooms on day 2 and 3. This takes time out of our very short stay there. Packing , unpacking. Checking and rechecking with the desk. You used to do better. Also be empathetic in your service when this occurs. Don't feel like an upgraded room is a favour. It is in fact a disruption to a otherwise great vacation.




Mon expérience fût merveilleux a cet hotel, moi et ma conjointe avions déjà prévu un nouveau voyage a votre hotel en septembre, mais étant donné la pandémie mondiale de coronavirus, nous allons attendre un peu avant de booker, mais nous espérons y retourner en septembre pour notre anniversaire de mariage



Very Enjoyable

The personnel were very friendly at all positions wether it was housekeeping, the bartenders, the drivers of the cart staff ,or the waiters, pleasant experience by all
