Had an amazing week at the resort. The staff were so friendly and helpful, always trying to ensure we had everything we needed. The food was terrific in the buffet, the ala carte restaraunts and there is an amazing coffee shop in the shopping area that has lovely sandwiches and deserts to go along with wonderful coffee! The pool and surrounding area were very well kept and the washrooms were a nice upgrade. The people working in the lobby area were very friendly, happy and worked very hard and always smiling.
Had a wonderful week! Everything was perfect, from the pool, the lobby bar, the ala carte restaurants and the buffet. The people were amazing and tried so hard to make sure we had everything we needed. There is a hidden gem in the shopping area, a lovely little coffee house that has great coffee and deserts and sandwiches. The chill out bar by the beach was lovely. There were some upgrades done to the pool and the washrooms by the pool and they were very nice! The people were so very friendly and helpful, always smiling, they made us feel very good!
Catalonia Bávaro is a great resort! We had the best time at this resort. It’s a paradise on earth. I was happy to be there and the beauty of the resort is amazing. We had a great room and the pool was beautiful too. This is the 2nd resort that I stayed at and I loved it! I started jotting down some things to say for a review. So this may be out of order, but you’ll get the idea. We had some great service by very friendly and helpful people that work at the resort. Junior by the pool to give towels Vanessa our concierge Darling -bartender/waiter (guy always knew what we like to drink) super sweet too! Yertiz in the spa - masseuse - love her! Virgen at the exclusive club - super great lady and is honest with you. Angel in the photography studio. He and many other photographers took so many great pics of us. Of course we bought many of them! There are a few others but I don’t remember their names. Excursions are fantastic. The tour guides make the experience fun, on top of the fun you already have. Monkeyland is a must for those with kids or for animal lovers. You get to feed them, not touch them. They will climb all over you and sit on your shoulder or head. We loved it! We also went to the Caribbean Sea. Sauna (?) Island is a must. Where they take you, the water is crystal clear. We saw starfish from the boat. We swam at the sand bar. Best place I’ve ever been!! They also take pictures on the excursions that you can purchase. They are great pictures. The locals sell souvenirs too. You have to bargain with them to get a good deal. They are willing to negotiate. It is worth the extra money to get a privileged room. There are many perks included. There is an adult only side. I don’t know what they have that we don’t. Took a sneak peak at the Royal side. Pool isn’t as big and lobby isn’t full of the same things the family side has. I would stay on the family side again. Catalonia Bávaro is the family side. If you come to this resort or any on the Atlantic Ocean side, be prepared to come the right time of the year. There is so much seaweed - algae right now because of sargasso (?) releasing it all. It isn’t clear this time of year. Best times are February to May, this is what a lifeguard told us. Entertainment of the evening is at the stage area. There is something that happens every night. So much fun. There is a variety of entertainment. Sax player is great too. The best restaurant of the 4 is by far Rodeo. Steak is great with amazing flavor. Everything we had was delicious. I cannot say the same for the other 3. The buffet was the best place to eat. There is a variety of food to choose from. This foodie was all about the great food the chefs prepared. We loved eating at the buffet restaurant because of the cranes, ducks, birds and turtles all around us. The cranes are the watchmen of the restaurant, keeping the others in check. You aren’t supposed to feed the animals. However, you see ppl do it all the time. It’s not good for them. Lobby is beautiful, so is the rest of the resort. Doctor Ortiz at the 24 Hour Clinic was awesome! He exceeded my expectations. I work in the medical field and didn’t know what to expect from an international doc. He was very attentive and explained everything to us. It was far better than what going to the ER in the states is, on average. I recommend getting travel insurance, especially if you already have any health issues. We didn’t get it, our bill was over $450. However, the doctor will provide the report and bill so you can file a claim to the insurance, this gets emailed to you. I know this is for the USA and Germany. Not sure about other countries.…
Felix and Yohannan are good and nice guys, they give you fresh towels everyday and keep the beach tidy and clear. They make a talk with you everyday and are always happy. Because of the guys you have a pleasant stay on the beach of Catalonia Bavaro Beach.
Very good biets service from Felix and Yohannan! Clean biets and always friendly employees. The drinks at the beach are fresh and cold. I would really recommend to go to here. Food is also good at the restaurants.
