About Catalonia Royal Bavaro - Adults Only - All Inclusive, Punta Cana

Adult-only all-inclusive Punta Cana resort with privacy

In chilled-out Punta Cana
This beachside resort is a relaxing retreat from daily life, only 20 km from Punta Cana International Airport. You can soak up the sun on palm tree–lined Playa Bávaro beach or the peaceful shore-side infinity pool. Free parking is included for guests.

Tee off Caribbean style
It's not all sand and surf. You have access to 18-hole Caribe Golf Club, a 21-km drive away, where you can admire panoramic sea views while improving your handicap. You might prefer to head beachfront to indulge in head-to-toe pampering at palm-thatched Alegría Spa.

Sandy haven, world dining
Guests rave about the personalized service and surrounding palm tree gardens, which conjure a sense of seclusion upon the shore. Mediterranean-themed Thalassa is 1 of 6 restaurants you can choose from, and drinks are available at 6 bars/lounges. Free WiFI is throughout.

Laze in your hammock
You can laze on your balcony hammock and listen to the waves as they ripple along the shore. At Catalonia Royal Bavaro, rooms feature glamorous canopy beds and oversized circular bathtubs for a style that's part colonial charm and part up-to-the-minute chic.

Relaxing, affordable resort!
I stayed on the adult only side of the resort. I enjoyed my time here overall. Everyone was polite and kind. My room was well kept and spacious, and the grounds were immaculate. However, I felt the food was pretty bland, although provided in abundance, and I was a little upset when I called the front desk at about 2 am to tell them I was out of toilet paper and their response was basically summed up as, "housekeeping workers leave at midnight, so you are out of luck until the morning." Of course they didn't say it like that, and they were very polite about it, but that was the end result... not toilet paper for me. That's crazy!! I also did not like that check-in was at 3 pm, but at about 3:30 ish, when we arrived at the room, housekeeping was still there and had just finished mopping the floor (no carpet in the rooms), so we had to walk around on a wet floor until it dried. Also, if you are going with friends, know that most, if not all, of the rooms on the Adults only side come with 1 king bed, so you will have to share a bed. To sum up, despite these few hiccups, I would absolutely return to this resort. This was only one experience of many, and may not be the norm. I thought the price was affordable and a lot was included for that price.

Disappointing stay
My stay in this hotel has been very disappointing. If you are looking to stay in a place which has too many rules, then this is the right place for you. There are simply too many rules, and no flexibility from any of the staff. You cant bring food from any restaurant to eat in your room. The alcohol here is super-diluted to the point that you can't even taste the alcohol. The recliners next to the pools are not enough, and are always occupied. The room-service is really bad and they bring whatever and when they feel like it. I spent 3 hours waiting for my breakfast oneday. The house-keeping service comes to clean even if you have the do-not-disturb tag outside the door. On the second day of my stay, I tried to get my room changed, and it was after 6 hours of anger and complaining that my room was changed. The beach is mediocre and has too many rocks in shallow-waters. The restaurants here are disappointing at best and the service is very slow due to lack of waiters and serving staff. The pool aea has no staff to get orders from people. The room-air-conditioners are usually old and the hot-water doesn't always work. The wifi always drops or disconnects. This hotel lacks proper entertainment and has no shows and very little music. The staff in this hotel is very rude when it comes to handling complaints and they have the tendency to argue with the clients. This hotel is in the middle of nowhere, and there are no business around.

Get the swim up pool "Privilege Suites"
I went for my honeymoon and booked a privilege suite with swim up pool. I'm so glad I did, because the suit was great having our own space and back deck to relax. The beach was a short walk and always clean. They work around the clock cleaning the common areas. Service was flakey at times ,but we were on vacation and could deal with it not being perfect all the time. We did stay on the adult side only and it was well worth it.
