Stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro March 29 thru April 2, 2009. I was not in the upgraded section -- didn't know this was only $20 a day more but I was happy with my room since it was just me this trip. The housekeeping staff is extraordinary. They don't just come in and move things around -- they pull out...

We were four middle aged ladies who had been to a few 4+ resorts in Punta Cana and we decided to try the Catalonia for a week from March 23-30, mainly because we got a really good deal and needed another winter getaway (we went to the Grand Palladium Bavaro for our third time in late January). A friend had...

I just returned from my first trip to the Dominican Republic. After reviewing all these comments on this site I was a little skeptical about this hotel that I picked. Boy, was I surprised.
