We have gone to many all inclusives. This was the worst one for us. It was not terrible, but it was the worst. Reasons: Multiple days there was poop in the adult pool - the staff was told and no one did a thing. There is some island sludge that drips from the side of the resort into the water...

We went as 2 couples and had a great time! We upgraded to the adult only side and it was so relaxing! The pool was so quiet and so was the hotel. Both couples had kids and we were traveling without them so we were excited for some time away! Sign up for the Japanese restaurant ASAP... we ate there...

Having never been on an all inclusive holiday before, I found hotel catalonia to surpass itself in every way. The staff were by far the most helpful and hard working people that I had ever come across and nothing was to much trouble for them. The room was of excellent quality and cleanliness and our whole holiday was one of...

WARNING: fairly long review- but definitely a worthwhile read if you're at all interested in checking out this resort... My girlfriend and I stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro in November of 2007 for one week. The room was okay, nothing amazing, the food was fair, and the service was definitely lacking! The 2nd evening there, we tried their Mexican a...

We paid $980 CDN each including taxes of about $320 each. Excellent value for our money, the food was good, the travel time from Airport to Resort was about 25 min only. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The food was buffet and a la carte. The hotel allows us to go for dinner at a la carte...

After reading some of the reviews before we went I was a little concerned about the mention of bugs in the room, but thankfully there was not a bug in sight in our room!
