Visitors can also use the Internet room and library for free.

Dining

Alfresco dining enhances the experience at Catalonia Royal Bavaro Adults Only – All Inclusive.

Fantastic for couple

The hotel is beautiful as the photos found on the Internet. The staff is friendly, the treatment is excellent. The atmosphere is quiet, if you want more music and shows you can go to the hotel next door. The hotel rooms are very nice, clean, well decorated. The food is excellent and varied. In general I recommend and hope to return soon

Beautiful Beach

This was the most relaxing vacation. The beach was wonderful-warm waters, white sand, plenty of chairs, excellent service. One day the chef prepared paella over a wood fire-on the beach! Amazing and delicious. The room was spotless, the grounds were well manicured, cleanliness was the order of the day! Great water pressure in the shower, plenty of towels, robes, and of course, clean. We ate at the Tapas, Steak and Japanese restaurants. The beachfront restaurant serves the best calamari and California rolls-delicious. I will say the Steak rest. does a unique "Maryland" crab cake- well,let's just say it was like a sheet cake, made with potatoes, served cold. But the steak, to die for. And, let's not forget, I had paella and sangria on the beach!! I can't say enough about the wonderful staff. My Spanish is limited, can you say ola and adios, but I was able to communicate without a problem. Thankfully, their English is better than my Spanish. But let me add- Kindness and courtesy are universal, pack them in your carry-on luggage, that way these items don't get lost en route and they are with you for the duration.(Also, if plan on golfing, pack plenty of balls, cost $20.00/3 balls)

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

On your return flight, get to the airport a minimum of four hours before your flight. The service is extremely slow,and if you couple that with the large number of families/groups in line with ten or more pieces of bulging luggage, doing the luggage shuffle (removing items to meet the 50lb limit)-you will feel like you are never going to make it out of the line. If you get to the airport three hours early, thinking you'll have time to pick up that Presidente t-shirt and a bottle of Dominican rum at the the duty free- Forget it, ain't gonna happen! You'll be lucky to make your flight. And if you think making it out the line is getting over the hump, think again. Once you go through Customs and stand behind people still filling out the form, you get the gate. Now, you must walk (outside on the tarmac) what seems like a mile(sweating like a pig)to your plane, where, once again, your boarding pass and passport are re-checked. Now success! No, wait, the plane is only half full, and you must now sit(in A/C(!)and wait for the other passengers that are really humping trying to make their flight, because they got to airport two hours before their flight. Arriving at the airport two hours before your flight could result in mucho frustration(aka-MELTDOWN) and a missed flight.

Great staff!!

Great hotel!!! We mostly stayed on the royal side, as food/service was horrible on catalonia bavaro. Casino also sucks, but we didnt plan on gambling much anyways. Beach is green, not blue! Plus has a lot of seaweed. But hotel cant help that. If you want blue waters, go to mexican riviera or other carribean location! Do not do Saona Island excursion!!! Total ripoff. They drop you off at a beach worse than the hotel's for 3 hours with nothing to do that couldnt be done at hotel. Instead, take an excursion that includes visiting Macao Beach---gorgeous!!! We did extreme buggy 1/2 day and fell in love with macao beach.

Don't use coco tours for transport between airport and hotel. They make you meet with a representative that tries to sell you excursions. Our rep didnt make our appt and i wasted time trying to contact him. Just take a taxi to hotel. Drivers are supposed to show you rates for each hotel (can also look up rates online so you dont get ripped off).

Incredible value for the money!

This hotel was perfect for relaxing! It had amazing food and good options for activities if you wanted them. The family resort was steps away, and yet the adult side was still very quiet and relaxing. The only small things I would change were the humidity in the room (the AC didn't really take care of it), and the housekeeping (some days we had to go ask for our beach towells). But these were really small things! Overall it was a great experience!

Golfing didn't end up being free[...]. This may be a seasonal thing, but just a heads up. It was affordable ($35 for 9 holes), but we were dissappointed that it wasn't included.

Great Stay!

Hotel was great. The Royal side is the way to go. The staff is super friendly and most everyone speaks perfect english. Not the maids, but you dont really have to talk to them. The airport ride is only about 20 minutes which is great. This is one of the closest hotels. [...] The only down sides to the room were that we would sometimes find these little bugs that would normally show up when the maids put fresh flowers in the room. A quick wipe with a towel and they were gone.

Loved it. Very relaxing & calm.

These hotel is relaxing and classy. The service was great and is very very clean. Buffet food was ok, dinners were very good - we ate Mexican, Tapas, American, and Japanese. Preferred the service lunch at the pool over the buffet lunches. We took the kayaks & catamaran out. Sign up early for catarman's - esp. if you have to take the lesson for first time. Beach was very clean-no waves so no body surfing here. Could always find a chair in the shade. Went into the jacuzzi once - not hot but bubbly. Space could be found at the pools but we didn't hang there. Loved our room and our room soaking tub. Did lose power on the first day for about 10 min. during a storm. On the last day the hotel lost water for a few hours - we were checking out so I'm not sure how that all played out. They did truck in water and it didn't effect breakfast at all and they were manually flushing the lobby toliets after each use.

Dining tip: In Hotel

They are strict on clothing. During lunch (and I assume breakfast) bathing suits must be fully covered and at least flip flops on. Sent us back for shoes from the beach and saw 2 women sent back for not quite fully covered bathing suits (one no shirt, one long shirt but no shorts). Dinner is long pants & closed shoes for men - seemed strict about it too.
