First let me start off my saying overall, I had a good time. I was here for 7 days. If you are reading this, you know this place is one of the cheaper resorts in Punta Cana. There is a reason for that. Also, this is a couples resort. Singles are here, but not many. For couples, you will meet...

We've just come back from spending two weeks in the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. On the whole the Hotel was very nice, we had upgraded our room and were in 3604. The room itself was very nice but there was a musty smell with the bed. Now I know what you are all thinking, it's very humid you have to expect...

This was my 6th time to Punta Cana, and my first at this resort. Before I get started, one thing I have found with Punta Cana in general that I do not like is it is getting busier and busier. The airport itself is now 75% bigger than when I first started going. The other thing is they are now...

Welcome to the Dominican Republic. This is the story of the Royal Catalonia Bavaro on the North and Eastern most tip of the Atlantic Ocean, the time, Christmas 2012. At $400 a night, and equipped with a 5 star rating, I think that you might have pretty lofty expectations as did I. In defense of the indefensible, the front desk...

Never been to the Dominican Republic like the rest have heard good & bad. But the Catalonia Royal at Bavaro was excellent, looks as good as the brochure. Good blend of international guest, the restaurants were brilliant and if your board with the variety go next door to the sister hotel. Pool facilities were first class.
