Not worth it

Negative side: Food was horrible and the Vendors/Marketing team ruin what is supposed to be a peaceful vacation! BE AWARE* if you go for a tour for members club the tour is 5 hours!!! Meaning a whole day of the resort will be gone! They offered me 2 vouchers just so i can go to the tour and they only gave me 1. The positive side is that the people who works there made the stay easier. Felix the Bartender by the pool was awesome and creative with the drinks. Rosalinda and Jenny from Caribbean buffet took good care of us. Juliana the housekeeper made sure my room was always cleaned and fully stocked with everything. Jan Carlos who helped me with my luggage was extremely helpful and Kelly whom checked me in the reception was amazing! She helped me make restaurant reservations and surprised me with birthday balloons in my Suite. If you go to Alegra Spa, for a Massage I strongly recommend Mindri Rodriquez. She takes her time and listens to what you need. She’s a wonderful therapist! Overall this resort is not a 5 star due to the horrible food, marketing and division of the bracelets. I for sure will not come back to this resort!
Stuck here for one night, not in a hurry to return

Shuttled here by Delta airlines after a flight cancellation. If you are a college student on Spring Break or otherwise on a MEGA budget this might be the place for you. Granted we did not see any of the resort in the daylight, but we did see our room. Ugh... We also enjoyed room service pizza. Sort of looked like it might have been made in an easy bake oven? Unsure. We did not get food poisoning, so there is that. There were three mini beers in the "mini" bar. Requested more from room service. Maid showed up with two warm ones. We passed on those, just as I would pass on this resort given the option.
Always a great pleasure to come back at my second house

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

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 .
