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.

It was OK, but there's better out there.
This was my 3rd time in the Dominican Republic so I'll try my best to break this down. We stayed in the Royal part but did venture all over the property. The food: The best you will find is in Thelassa, the main restaurant by check-in. From the food to the service, there's no better place to eat at Catalonia. The buffet on the other side of the property is really just blah. Theres a little hidden sushi joint by the casino that I didn't get to try bc it opens at 6pm. MY BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT WAS NO LOBSTER! Ive stayed at other all inclusive where it wasn't so friggin hard to find seafood! it was pretty nonexistent here. FAIL for that you're paying. The service: Of all my times in DR, I expected people to be warmer. The friendliest people were in Thelassa, Milady at the bar by the beach, and the ones that cleaned our room. Otherwise, the employees look a little down. The alcohol was CHEAP. So don't plan on drinking too much because you'll either throw up, or be in the bathroom all day. Nothing top shelf here. Pretty disappointed about that. The music at the nightclub was disappointing. If I'm in DR, I want to listen to some bachata! A lot of the nights was hiphop music. I will say that there was pretty good entertainment throughout but you have to go to the Bavaro side.. the royal side is pretty much just quiet. The beach was clean, you can tell they're trying to clean up the seaweed issue. Went in April, the water was freezing though, so try to go in the summer.
