Very Beautiful and Excellent Staff

First time to DR. It was a great resort. The pools, Service, beach were all excellent. There was some seaweed on the beach from a couple of storms but it was cleaned up pretty quickly for DR time.

Excellent experience !

Me and 2 friends stayed at the hotel from November 2nd to November 9th, 2019 on the adult only side. It was an overall very nice experience. The site and the rooms are very clean and well maintained. We requested a second bed that was not there when we arrived but that was brought in a few minutes after our call to the reception. On the adult side, there is no buffet per say (only for breakfast). All the restaurants on this section are a la carte which is pleasant as you get to be served at the table. We went to the family section one night to try the buffet but found it very noisy. Overall, they are all pretty good with a nice variety of meals. The beach is amazing with a lot of shades and bar service to your chair, even if you are not premium. There is a nice juice stand on the beach which makes fresh serving to the order. There are 2 pools, one for party on one quiet one closer to the ocean. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

Enjoyable

We had a wonderful time at the resort. We purchased a privileged upgrade but unfortunately was unable to see the benefit of it. Every time we went to change our pool towels, there were none available. The beach was not beautiful. I have been to many beaches and I have to say this one was the worst. So we stayed by the pool the entire week and quite enjoyed that. We were on the adult side which was nice, however it would have been nice to have an area for snacks throughout the day other than sitting down at one of the restaurants. In the resort we stayed in in Jamaica there were pub style carts located around so that we could get nachos, burgers, fries, ice cream, etc. Also we never had to order water, there were random coolers all over the resort for us to take them as we needed. The entertainment was fun. We enjoyed most of it.

The perfect carribbean get away

I really cannot fault out stay at this hotel. We have a deluxe privileged junior suite and from our arrival to the day we left it was clean and cool. The staff are very friendly, if anything I felt rude not having the best Spanish! The food was fantastic, the drinks were not watered down and the beach is clean. There are plenty of loungers for all guests and two sizable pools. The local beer is nice and the frozen or normal cocktails were great also. Pools were clean, the entire complex was clean also! If you go with the upgrade then ask for a map of the other hotel in the resort as you can eat there also but the map you are given dosent show where they are. Also, take anti bug spray and post bite spray as me and my partner were covered. Everything gets a 5/5 from me and my partner. We just wish we knew about the steak and Asian restaurants in the other hotel sooner. We will be returning next year!

Beautiful hotel, horrible food!

The hotel was beautiful and the ambience was very calm, sometimes a little too calm. We were there during off season in November so it was very quiet. The pool areas and beach were beautiful but very boring. No activities, no music. That’s one thing that I didn’t understand. Why no music at the pools? It was so quiet and dull. And the food at ALL the Catalonia Royal restaurants were so bland and disgusting. Even the breakfast buffet was boring and lacking variety. My wife and I went to the sister family hotel for all our dinner and lunch meals. That is the one reason I would not come back. Multiple days of horrible food is not a way you want to have a vacation. There were also days there multiple restaurants were closed for lunch and dinner so you only had 1 or 2 options for all the guests at the restaurant. Snacks were also few and far between in the hotel room itself. Only Oreos and peanuts and some soft drinks. I have been to other hotels that have provided potato chips and chocolates other more substantial snacks. Beautiful beach but not that much else that would bring me back.

Beautiful

This hotel was the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed in. The food was awesome, the room was beautiful, but the large tub had no water pressure. The employees were always smiling and friendly. The hotel had everything you needed inside. My 2 issues I found were: Everywhere we went they had a group of people wearing Maravilous shirts trying to sell time shares. As soon as you enter the hotel, they seem to be all over you. They even went to bug you at the pools and beach. Gets very annoying. They bring in a Market 2 times when we were there. This is an awesome idea for the tourists not to go out to purchase. But the people in the market push you to purchase and they are very expensive compared to the actual stores in the hotel. You can negotiate the price and they will bring the prices down. They don’t let you walk away without being pushy. Other than maybe a couple of employees that didn’t seem to like their job, snack bar by the Royal pool Hostess never smiled, and the annoying sellers, we found this Hotel to be the best Hotel we had ever stayed at. If you can get over the annoying, I highly recommend this place.

entertainment

being that we stayed a week I would like to see at least 6 different entertainers and not repeats. As for the entertainment at the resort next door started too late for us.

1st stay

nice adult only resort- quiet. they need to get new beds at the pool near the beach- very uncomfortable - plus several of the umbrellas are old & not working- so that kind of maintenance needs improvements or attention paid to it on regular basis and addressed right away.

Honeymoon Stay - Do not recommend

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Catalonia on the adult side and I would only rate this a 3 star resort. This was my second all-inclusive resort in DR as I usually go to Mexico. The resort grounds were beautiful and well kept but the rooms were outdated and very dark. There were multiple times we had to call to ask for clean towels as none were left in our room after house cleaning had been in there. Many nights we would get into bed and it felt like there was sand in it so we would leave notes asking for them to change the sheets but it never felt clean. We also requested a new robe as 1 of the 2 in our room didn't have a string and an additional pillow and they never showed up. We ordered room service a fair amount (5 - 7 times between breakfast/lunch/snacks) and every time they got some part of our order wrong. The beach on the adult side had a ton of seaweed but the family beach side was a lot nicer for swimming. There were CONSTANTLY locals patrolling the beach trying to sell things which became very annoying when you are trying to read/relax and they walk by every 2 minutes loudly whistling to get your attention. If you happen to make eye contact they will come over and hound you to buy. The food was decent - some restaurants some of the hot food came out cold and there was a long wait between courses. We only did buffet for breakfast in the main hotel which was always very good. We were excited to try the steak house but was very let down when my meal (ordered medium) came out waaay under cooked. The plate was covered in blood before I even cut into the steak. We had already waited so long to get our entrees that I didn't bother sending it back. The spa was nice, easy to make an appointments. The gym on the adult side is super small but has what you need for the basics. It's comfortable for 2-3 people to workout at the same time but there's a much bigger one on the family side with more equipment.

Nice relaxing place

Very nice and relaxing place. The staff is awesome. The food is amazing (specially Katrina’s sushi). What I liked about this place is it wasn’t crowded and you could actually relax. The rooms are very clean and there is a lot of hot water for the showers! First time going to Catalonia Royal Bavaro but sure won’t be my last!

Great resort

Just returned from a week at this resort it was a beautiful and peaceful stay. The grounds and pool areas are amazing. The rooms are excellent and very clean, and we loved being near the pool and lobby area. The food was awesome at both resorts restaurants and we went to almost all of them. It was too bad that the beach had so much seaweed on it everyday but it's out of their hands, however they were out raking as much as they could every morning. We would definitely come back to this beautiful hotel resort.

My wife’s surprise 50th birthday holiday

This was a last minute holiday due to losing our one that we booked due to Thomas cook collapsing. I booked this through voyage Privé as a surprise for my wife’s 50th birthday as she thought we couldn’t go on another holiday. I paid for the upgrade to a premium suite which would then be upgraded again to a suite with a swim up pool for free. Once we arrived at the hotel and shown our room it was apparent that this was not the case. We went back to reception to tell them and they told us they only had us booked for the premium suite and couldn’t help. To say we were disappointed and little upset was an understatement as there was no sympathy or any other help from reception nd we had to stay where we were for the 2 weeks.

Review

The food in a la Carte has been very bad as to where I would not even eat it. Very disappointed compared to other all inclusive resorts in Punta Cana . Also no entertainment through out the day which makes it very boring . Decor is beautiful and the resort is very pretty and clean. We received two rooms with the ac barely working until the third day we finally had a working ac.
