Write a review about this resort

There is a stunning water fountain that can take anyone's breath away. To complete the immense enchantment of the Catalonia Royal Bavaro Hotel there is a 1 km of exclusive beach with white coral sands and turquoise waters.

Many Europeans frequent this resort so you will see a lot of them around. There will be some people smoking in the area but since the wind can be strong it may be the case that you won’t even notice it.

The staff service is excellent, they work very hard to delight the customers, even sometimes the language can be a bit troublesome for them but they do their best to satisfy the needs of the guests. They are always serving with a smile on their faces and for that they deserve a nice tip.


You can see there are two types of suites at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro Hotel: the junior and the royal junior. Here 3 adults can accommodate in a room with: private swimming pool, jacuzzi, 24 hour room service, bathrobe, slippers, and king beds plus the equipment in the junior suites.

The junior suites have the usual stuff like satellite TV, ceiling fans, 1 king bed or 2 twins beds, telephone, air conditioner, and more. This rooms have a nice space and are certainly comfortable; they are the kind you will find in the normal area of the Catalonia Royal Bavaro Hotel.

Pool and Beach

There are 2 great pools which are an essential part of the Catalonia Royal Bavaro Hotel, after all what is a resort without a nice looking pool. An immense and extraordinary pool is located in the central part of this resort, perfectly crafted fountains, incredibly well made jacuzzis with a refreshing touch of tiny islands all around the pool to give this place an aura of a true Caribbean vacation.

The swim up bar is present in this pool which makes it even better (especially for me). Many water sports are played here like water polo and water volleyball. The pool is big enough to have a nice crowd in there and be comfy at the same time. Children can have fun here at the Royal Catalonia Bavaro Punta Cana too, there is a separate pool for them here where they can jump and swim all they want.

As I said before here you will see 1 km of exquisite snow white sand bathed with turquoise waters, sheltered in an enclosed bay mixed with a coral reef nearby ensure the water activities done here to be a success. To get a decent spot in the beach, I must tell you that waking up pretty early is the only way to go. When I say early I mean like dawn, you get a towel (preferable one that belongs to you not a hotel one) and put it over the chair of your choice to save it. Once there you are pretty much settled to enjoy a nice day at the beach.


The Catalonia Royal Bavaro Hotel got a pretty nice menu in their restaurants. The Gran Caribe restaurant is the buffet in this place, they have international cuisine. They place has some a la carte restaurants; Thalassa (Mediterranean restaurant), Mikado (Japanese restaurant), Cata Tapa (a la carte tapas), Mariachi (Mexican restaurant) and Rodeo Steak House. La Palapa restaurant (serves continental breakfast and barbeque at lunch) and La Toscana (Italian restaurant).

For the buffet is more suitable being there early to have the fresh food. If you come near to the time when they are closing you will have to deal with the food cold and not much variety; so remember to always be early. 

For breakfast and lunch you will most likely choose between the buffet and the Palapa restaurant. Both have great choice of food but like usual it comes up to how early you go. The a la carte restaurants can only be used at dinner time; the dressing as you can imagine is formal clothing.


There are plenty of activities that can be done here: water sports, night entertainment, excursions, golf, and more land sports. Among the daylight activities is pedal boats, snorkeling, sailboats, and windsurfing. Scuba diving and snorkeling lessons will have a sub charge. The motorized sports like jet ski and banana boat will also involve an extra fee. The Catalonia Royal Bavaro Hotel is full of fun!

Every night after 10 pm there will be a show where performers will do musical acts, imitations, etc. The casino in this resort will open after 7 pm for all those who like Vegas style action. The disco is one of the top choices for people who want to enjoy a wild time in Punta Cana. I mentioned this before but I will say it again, you don't have to be bored in your room at night, here all types of people can have their fun time; honeymooners, romantic couples, and singles. Having fun is definitely a priority for anyone staying at the Royal Catalonia Bavaro Punta Cana!

Excursions to Saona island, Isla Catalina and the Manati Park are also another way to pass your vacation here even when they can be a little bit pricy. To visit Saona island you have to pay 18 US dollars per person and 25 US dollars approximately per person to Manati Park. If you thought there was nothing to do in land you are very wrong. There is a golf course (with an extra fee of course), gym, computers with high speed connection, basketball court, tennis court, volleyball, dancing lessons, and Spanish lessons.
