Intimate, all-suite Punta Cana hotel boasts private pools, modern rooms

With poolside suites and beachfront dining, Catalonia Royal Bavaro Adults Only – All Inclusive encourages couples and singles to fully retreat to vacation mode. The all-suite hotel bears a mix of honeymoon suites, junior suites and suites with direct access to private pools. Access to a sister hotel expands the leisure options, but many guests choose to spend time on site at the full-service spa or massage palapas on the beach.

Highlights
  • All-suite resort on Bavaro Beach
  • Spa with sauna, hydromassage showers and Turkish bath
  • 14 suites with private pools
  • Massage palapas on the beach

Rooms

Couples and singles appreciate the contemporary style of the rooms of Catalonia Royal Bavaro Adults Only – All Inclusive. A collection of junior suites, honeymoon suites and suites with direct access to private pools highlights furniture with sleek lines, open layouts (including roomy terraces) and in-room Jacuzzis. Look for extra touches, too, including a mini-bar stocked with drinks, beer and snacks, a LCD TV, pool towels and Wi-Fi Internet access. Honeymoon suites are steps away from a private lake.

Features

Guests have access to the amenities at sister resort Catalonia Bavaro Beach, Golf & Casino Resort, but many choose to unwind on site. With a full-service spa  -- home to a Turkish bath, sauna and hydrotherapy showers -- and beachfront massage palapas, the property encourages blissful private time. 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. Guests can pull up a chair on the patio at Thalassa, which specializes in Mediterranean fare, or request a lakeside table at tapas restaurant CATA TAPA. A juice bar and deli -- both by the beach -- are suited for light, casual dining. A la carte restaurants require long pants, sleeves and closed-toe shoes for men and chic attire for women.

Great time

Great trip - all the staff were really nice and helpful - expecially Armstrong at the pool rest and Carlos at the swin up bar!!! Rooms are really nice. Food was good - could have been better but always found something i liked. Drinks are NEVER watered down. It was nice to have no kids on this side of the resort but still have access to all the restuarants and pools on the other side. Our room was a little musty and we mentioned it in a survey they asked us to do - next morning we woke up and there was a dehumidifier - GREAT SERVICE. Couldn't ask for a better vacation. Beach and pools were always nice and clean.

Excellent Trip

We had a great time at the Barcelo Royal Bavaro. Rooms were very nice and clean, so was the hotel grounds. The staff were pretty friendly, the food was pretty good and the vacation was excellent.

Good Experiencie

My husband and I spent a good time in this hotel. In my opinion I did not like the soda that put in the drinks, this soda is the machine and the drinks dont have the same flavor with a machine soda.

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.
