We stayed at Catalonia from March 23 - 30 with our two children - 14 months and 3 years. Our holiday was excellent - the food was great, the staff incredible. There is absolutely nothing that I would say negatively about the resort. A great resort for the $$. Would definitely go back and are planning again to next year.

I usually take vacation with my family on a cruise. This year we decided to do a all inclusive resort. Glad I did this as I enjoyed this more than the cruise. Nothing wrong with the cruise, but this was better. Let me break it down. 1) Airport: Airport is small, but its decent size for DR. We had no...

My Wife and I traveled to the Catalonia Bavaro in April 2008. Our trip was excellent all around....

It was our 2nd trip to PuntaCana but the first time with my son (with sever allergy to peanut and dairy). The beach is very nice with almost no wave thanks to the coral reefs offshore. It was windy for 2 days and the rest of the week we enjoyed a light breeze. Snorkeling was our favorite activity as there...

My husband and I had the most fantastic time at the Catalonia from March 12-20. For perspective, in the past we have been to the Mayan Riviera and have stayed at Aventura Palace, Bahia Principe, and Barcelo Maya. We enjoyed Catalonia much better than all of those - and in some cases Catalonia was half the price!! Staff were phenomenal!...

My first trip to the Carribean and I have to say it was nothing short of spectacular. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and the service impeccable. The grounds were well maintained and the stretch of beach is something that will be hard to forget. Being a fairly young traveler, however, I was a little disappointed at the nightlife. The...
