Relaxing Vacation

Good location. Nice comfortable setting for relaxation. The eating places left little to be desired. Food was very bland and not that great. Would probably try a different hotel if I ever go back. Staff was OK, friendly but don't go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. I'd give it a 3 star rating, nothing higher.

Relaxing Quiet Vacation Spot

Great value. Great room and cleanliness. Food was great for dinner. Rest of meals were okay, not amazing. Perfect spot for a quiet relaxing spot. Not much to do other than enjoy the food/drinks/pool/beach. If you're looking for lots of activities and shows this isn't the place for you. If you're happy bumming out by the pool/beach/room it's perfect.

Amazing - bring single bills

Although all inclusive, tipping a few dollars goes a long way. The glasses get bigger and the staff become more attendant. Regardless, they are all incredibly polite and helpful. The food and restaurants on the adults only side are superb. Avoid the restaurants where children are allowed, the quality is less than the adult side. I was able to negotiate an upgrade price to the rooms with the private pool upon my arrival which is well worth it. Waking up to room service and champagne sitting outside by your private pool is an amazing experience and close to the beach.

Don't book airport travel through the website. The travel company will make you meet them at scheduled meetings (twice) to upsell you on their excursions offered. Why schedule anything on your vacation? The concierge can arrange anything you need.

Hotel Catalonia

the hotel was great the rooms were awsome! they were clean and seems like they clean the room 3 times a day. the food was not good at all! the food is more like a 3 star hotel food, and the service is horrible you ask for a simple drink and you wait 20-30 mins...while you see the waiter laughing with other waiters and not doing their job, very very unorganized. but besides the food and service my wife and i had a great time, great location and nice rooms.

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.

Recommend the Adult Side

We really enjoyed staying on the adult side (Royal Side) of the hotel. You have access to the family side, but you can easily stay on the adult's only side and enjoy the beach, pools, bars, and restaurants. The service is better on the Royal side, and you get to meet some great staff members. The overall quality of food, drinks, and service is better on the Royal side.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

When the staff learn you are new, they will ask you to set up an "orientation" (sales) meeting. They will tempt you with a free welcome gift and continue the pressure during your stay. It is not a mandatory meeting, and will likely waste 2 hours of your first day.

Have it all, except the crowds

Royal side is the best. Exceptional first class service, great beach, pool, bars, restaurant. The best is at no time was there more than 30 people around you. You can enjoy all the amenities of the larger Catolina Bravaro next door but still escape to your uncrowded oaisis on the Royal side.

I would arrange my own transfer next time rather than use the one offered by Orbitz. I find it ridicualus that the only way to get your transfer back to the airport is to meet up with a representative during your stay. At that time they then try to sell you other tours.

Nice quiet getaway

The Catalonia Royal Bavaro was a very relaxing getaway. It doesn't have all the nightlife but you can get that at the neighboring hotel Ctalonia Bavaro which you have full access to all amenities there also. The beds were quite hard and need some upgrades but other than that we can not complain. The food was delicious at all the sit down restaurants. We did not go to the buffet restaurant at all. The hotel is not located close to any other hotels. The wines that are part of the all-inclusive package were not good at all.
