Yes, I went in July from 8th-13th with some girlfriends. I stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro Beach. I believe that this hotel catered to European Tourists, specifically Spanish speaking tourists. I had some issues with communicating with the staff, because the majority of them spoke only Spanish or bits of English. Luckily, I speak enough Spanish to get by. I...

If you're only going to read the first sentence in this review, my recommendation is this: If you are from Canada, book the Catalonia, then immediately upgrade to the Royal once you get there - it's a FRACTION of the price offered at home. My husband and I stayed at the Catalonia resort for one week ending July 31. Being...

The hotel grounds are lovely the rooms are spacious and clean, but the decor is a little dated. The bed was OK pillows were...

Included a digital safe, that we made our own combination to so never any issues on safety. For us we were right inbetween the pool and...

we stayed at this hotel for one week and loved every minute!!! I was a bit worried over the bad reviews, but was absolutely satisfied with everything on offer here. The hotel, pool, beach, food ,entertainment was all good. Only downside was there arent many English that stay here, but that doesnt affect the quality of your holiday at all....
