Just returned from the Catalonia Bavaro, really enjoyed our stay. For what we paid, it was total value for money. We've travelled to many different places around the world and have never got so much for our money. We dined at all of the a la carte restaurants twice, the t-bone steak in the steak house was fantastic, the lamb...

This was our first time to Punta Cana, found the beach to be spectacular along with the temperature and weather for mid June. I would rate this hotel category a 4 to 4 ½ star without the sophistication of superiors buildings, rooms or furniture. Check-in was fast, but getting to your room may get you into a sweat. We had...

This was my first time booking an entire trip through Expedia.com and I have to say I was pleased. All of the vouchers you need to print out went over very smoothly (apart from a parking voucher, which turned out to be for a park n' ride that we didn't park in; a $144 mistake!). Most of the next comments...

We stayed at the Catalonia the week of June 8-14. We had fabulous weather except for the last night there. It rained most of the day and night.but I was told it was badly needed.

One word can describe my trip to Catalonia Bavaro, Amazing! I Stayed at Catalonia from May 23rd until May 30th. I had done some research before going on vacation and I wasn’t really sure if Catalonia would be a suitable place for two 20 year old friends. I was defiantly wrong. We had an amazing time, met amazing people and...
