Catalonia Stay

Diana N on Jan 30, 2023

We are ETC members and are staying at Catalonia bavaro. We've been here many times and enjoy it every time. We get the best services from the butlers but Felix is our favorite. As for concierge Ronny is so helpful and accommodating with our requests. Zairy and Elizabeth are nice at the pure bar

So so hotel, been to better, been to worse

Tracy l (Windsor, Canada) on Jan 30, 2023

Third time here and for some reason I tell myself it will be better , it never is. It’s mediocre at best. Check in - smooth sailing but that could be because we took private transportation from airport and didn’t arrive with bus load of people . Rooms- we upgraded to privilege and I chose the second floor to ease any thoughts of ants lol. Well our room was ok, yet the bathroom window was broken and slanted in such a way that there was a two inch gap 2/3rds the way around. We ended up with an ant infestation and had to have our room sprayed. Food- just one step above cuba food. They how have all the buffets covered in nets to prevent the birds from coming in. Large selection just kind of blah food but you won’t go hungry. Beach - no complaints Shows - no complaints Resort is huge, privilege rooms are near beach and pool which is nice but make for a long walk to restaurant and bars. Also upgrading to privilege does nothing, other than seperate area of the beach. All other bonuses we did not get - like in room towel service, priority seating at buffets etc… Now the absolute worse part is as soon as that privilege bracelet goes on you are bombarded by reps offering you a special breakfast. We have been to this breakfast before and know it’s for the travel club so we decline but they persist day after day multiple times a day it’s annoying. Vendors- they are pushy and hardcore here, often set up in such a way you can’t avoid them on the way to eat. You can say “ no thanks” , “ no money “ or nothing at all and they still persist. Hate that, I want to relax. We are on the fence as to wether to return for fourth time, figure for the price we pay we may find a resort that actually has privilege amenities .

An amazing holiday

Luisa M on Jan 26, 2023

Such an amazing vacation. Soraya at guest services was so helpful. Kelly at the front desk was beyond helpful and kind. Kelly had incredible customer service. Juan A a waiter was the hardest worker I have ever seen! He remember the drinks we liked before we even asked for them. That was just a few of the incredible staff at this resort. Thank you for making our holiday so amazing …. We will be back soon!!!!!

Beautiful bávaro

sfranco_1 (Toronto, Canada) on Jan 25, 2023

We had a wonderful time on our stay at Catalonia Bavaro. Beautiful beach and rooms were modern and clean. The resort had a few restaurants to choose from every night as well as two buffets and a couple snack bars. We felt like we never were waiting for the next meal . The weather was ideal Dec 28-Jan 4 was our stay duration. The days were warm up to 30 celcius but the breeze was perfect so it wasn't overbearing. The night time rain was soothing and 7 am bright sunny skies just in time for the golfcourse. A small 9 hole is located on site and an 18 hole course minutes away. The resort can set up transportation arrangements. The royal bávaro side of the resort is the adults only and for our return we do plan on staying on there. The royal is newer and the food was slightly better at the restaurant we tried. The biggest bonus of our vacation was meeting the wonderful staff. We felt at home by their kind and genuine hospitality. We spent most of our nights at the pure bar which was exclusive to the privilege room we stayed in. We can't thank Leslie enough for her mixology and lively spirit. She was warm and welcoming. Every night we joined her for her shift and laughed and told stories. She was a major highlight and will miss her dearly. Our towel gentleman Junior was always making sure we were stocked for the beach. He was always there to help with any questions and also very warm. We looked forward to seeing him daily and cracking a joke and exchanging slang in English vs Spanish. A few others like Elizabeth Maria and Zandry at the pure bar also made sure we never had an empty glass on the beach. We were greatly appreciative of the service. Hands down one of the best resorts services. Seaweed on the beach was cleared off by trucks on most days. you can tell the staff really try to manage the up keep of mother nature. They do the best they can and the water was very clean. The resort is not a party resort but the option of going to the pearl beach club is literally next door to the resort. We didn't go as we really enjoyed our nights hanging with Leslie and having our own mini party. We look forward to returning and would highly recommend for a family or couples vacation.
