We stayed at the Catalonia the week of April 11th to 18th. We loved it. It’s a great friendly atmosphere. The staff work hard and are so friendly. The Animation team work all day and night and put a huge effort into making you feel welcome. The lobby bar in the evening is a great place to hang out, listen...

A girlfriend and I celebrated my 35th birthday at the Catalonia in April. Overall, I would have to say that the resort is just okay. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. Everything was kept very clean. The room was average as far as decor and comfort goes. I didn't spend much time there anyway. The bed was comfy enough. The shower...

This review will be a little different than most. We stayed 4/11-4/16 and the resort is truly beautiful. The pictures that you see don't lie. However, the second day we were there, my partner's brother passed away back in Georgia, so she had to leave. Of course, that ruined our vacation. This is not the resort's fault. The staff was...

Great white sandy beaches, plenty of food. Tips: (1) get to the beach early to reserve a chaise under the huts; (2) book your reservations for the restaurants early! The French restaurant is wonderful; (3) the liquor seems to be "flavored" and not strong at all; (4) if you need to request an iron, do so early (a few days...

Well, let me first start off by saying this place was amazing... Being from California, it took about 24 hours for us to get to this location. It was very well worth it! The Island Gods smiled on us every minute of every day... Upon check in, I learned from TA that the best villas were indeed, 1-2-3-4, I asked...

We stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro the last week of March/first week of April and I must say that the staff at the hotel are who really made the trip great.

Much more than we expected. Don't get me wrong we have high expectations, and a good friend referred us to this Resort, as they visit several times a year.
