Never Again. We stayed with Catalonia Bavaro between Jan 10 to 17 with my wife and 8 mths old son. The services were really horrible.

Our travel agent said this was one of the bestselling resorts with repeat clientele and when we arrived on the 17th it was fully booked so we had great expectations.

We had 4 days of nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea so bad we were on the toilet all night long. I don't believe the bottled water is up to standards, it had a funny taste. The rooms were never clean, we...

Of all the resorts I have stayed at over the years, this was the worst. I would not give a terrible rating to a resort and jeopardize their future business if I could not provide specific examples, so I absolutely will. Here's my story... I stayed at the resort in order to stand up for my girlfriend - her wedding...

Let's take one item at a time. First is check-in, it was fast and easy. Once we were checked in we were given a ride to our room which was 1821 and although it is one of the older resorts our room was nice and very clean. Every day our maid brought more towels, bottled water, and beer than we...

Hi Everyone, Just got back on Jan 12 and sad to say I had higher expectations for this resort. This would have been our fourth time going and so we knew exactly what to expect or at least we thought we did.
