This was our second trip to Catalonia Bavaro and it was even better than our first trip. The beach was terrific, the people there were very friendly and Martin the bar tender on the beach was a blast. Our room was not as nice as the last time we were there, but it was still a good room, with great...

My husband and I took our baby son on his first beach holiday and choose this resort because it looked good on photos and it wasn't the most expensive nor the cheapest. On arrival we were very pleased with the check-in because they gave us a room on the ground floor (which is much more confortable to handle baby gear)...

I'm a 27 year old male who travelled from Toronto to Catalonia Bavaro with my girlfriend for a weeks stay from July 4th - 11th. Overall, this place is great. I didn't want to do anything but relax and lay around in the sun and it was absolutely perfect for that. I didn't go on any excursions, or watch any...
