We have been at this resort for a small family reunion about 10 times. Normally once in early Sping and the week after Thanksgiving. The reviews posted on the site are all on the money. The staff and management are on point, responsive and super friendly. Food is above average, healthy and taste great. Music and fun galore. What they...

I read many of the reviews of the Catalonia before our trip and had decided that I was going to go and form my own opinion. We arrived on November 28 for a week and spent the first couple of hours learning our way around the resort. We had lunch at the Grand Caribe buffet and then explored the resort....

First off, I want to say, my wife and I had a great time at the Catalonia Bavaro, the place is all it is cracked up to be. We enjoyed the meals, the atmosphere and the staff. Everything was as good as we had expected. The only thing is (as the title of this review suggests) larger people should beware....

I had to think about this resort if i could really find any negatives, we stayed at the Catalonia Bavaro from Nov 5-15/08 and had 10 days of terrific weather, fun and good times! The resort is large 700 rooms and i didn't know if i would like such a big resort, usually we stay at 2-300 room places and...

This was an excellent Resort. Four of us went down to Catalonia Bavaro - 3 gals and one of the girl's fiance. The staff were so friendly and nice. The entertainment at night was awesome! We even went up on stage and embarrassed ourselves. The pool was great! The alcohol wasn't as strong...it seemed a bit watered down to us...

Just returned from 7 nights at the Catalonia ( 12 - 19 Nov) and can honestly say that we had a great time. We paid £650 each via First Choice, this included flights, transfers and 7 nights all inclusive.

Spent 6 nights/7 days here last week. With a last minute direct flight from JFK (approx. $450/each), so the resort was approx $75-80/person/day. Catalonia Bavaro was really great for what we wanted - simply to rest and relax, not a jam packed vacation adventure. Property has nice grounds with the beach and pool areas both well maintained.

Myself and three other friends took a "guys trip" so booked two suites for four nights. The price was beyond belief---cheap. The resort is very nice but the rooms a little dated with a musty smell (like in most beach climates with old hotels). If you are from the U.S., you may be a stranger as the resort is Spanish...
