Catalonia Royal Bavaro questions

Hello,

I am thinking about booking a November 30th trip to Punta Cana and was leaning towards the Catalina Royal Bavaro.

-Can anyone comment on the quality and selection of food here?

-Do all of the rooms, including the standard Superior Suite have one of those hot tubs in the room, particlarly beside the bed?

-Anyone know if the disco gets busy at night on resort, and how close some other disco's might be?

-Would anyone recommend the following placing over the Catalina? (Bavaro Princess, Riu Palace Macao, Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro)

Any other comments would be most helpful. Thanks! :)

Food at CR is average to very good but it really subjective!

I think all rooms have a hot tub.

Disco, I never get in, in 4 visits.

It would really help us to help you if you can give us your criterias for good vacation.

What do you mean you never get in, in 4 visits?

My criteria for a good vacation is nice beach, good food quality and decent selection, decent drinks, and a good disco if possible.

I prefer adults only if possible but not necessary.

I am 31 and my wife is 26.

Food is subjective but I think it's good to great.

They are oversized soaking tubs, not jacuzzi, so be aware of that.

The disco is generally very lively. There's an off site club called Imagine not that far away. Ask when there about a transportation and entrance package.

We never went into the disco club on our last 4 visits to Cat Roy.

The beach is really calm, no waves even during windy days.

This resort is not a stand alone resort, it has his sister beside and you can use theirs amenties.

If it was my choice we would be going to Riu Guanacaste, Costa Rica but my wife wants to go to Punta Cana since we had not been to that part of Dominican.

Also what is the main difference between the Standard Superior Suite and the Deluxe Superior Suite, at the Catalonia?

The main differences are the deluxe suites are newer, have larger bathrooms and closer to the beach.

Hmmm just wondering if the difference in price of $60 per person would be worth it. Seems like a cheap upgrade if worth it.

Many consider the upgrade money well spent.

I agree with Marg...we upgraded to the Deluxe room on our last visit there and really enjoyed it. We are leaving in a couple weeks and upgraded to the swimming pool suite this time. If it is in your budget you get a jacuzzi, small pool, great patio with table and loungers and a great room to boot!

Can anyone provide me with the contact email address. I tried the one on their website and no one has responded.

We leave this coming Saturday.

Thanks for your help.
