I just got back from Catalonia Bavaro Beach yesterday. I went with my elderly mother, I'm fairly, young, single and have been to the Dominican Republic twice before, albeit to the northeast side of the island, Puerto Plata , where I stayed at two Riu brand hotels previously. Since I love the DR so much I decided to try the...

The first impression of any hotel is it's representative at the reception desk. A gentleman by the name Wilfredo represented the Hotel professionally and intelligently. My overall impressions of this hotel was that it was beautifully designed and well planned. The grounds were stunning and the food was very good value. The service from all staff members were friendly, accommodating,...

The rooms were spotless although the decor was a bit dated, we even had a hammock on the balcony which was a really nice touch. We...

We stayed at the Catalonia from July 13-26, 2009. We stayed on the regular side for the first 7 nights and then upgraded to the royal side for the last 5 nights. We wanted to compare the two resorts and see if the upgrade was really worth the extra money. We found the Royal side to have a completely different...

We went to this resort with another couple and had the best time! I know things can go wrong on a trip. But this place was great. We plan to go back again next year.

My husband and I just got back from a one week stay at the Catalonia Bavaro(August2-9, 2009). The flight took about 4 hours from Toronto and as soon as we landed in Punta Cana, locals took a picture of us with them wearing their traditional clothing which you can later on purchase as a souvenir for $10 CAD.

Yes, I went in July from 8th-13th with some girlfriends. I stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro Beach. I believe that this hotel catered to European Tourists, specifically Spanish speaking tourists. I had some issues with communicating with the staff, because the majority of them spoke only Spanish or bits of English. Luckily, I speak enough Spanish to get by. I...
