Upon arrival we recieved drinks and baggage taken to our rooms while we were checked in. The rooms were clean and more than adequate with plenty of electricity outlets. Everything was catered for AND I MEAN EVERYTHING. Domingo the Thompson rep was A-Maze-Ing. He made the holiday fantastic. If you are travelling with Thompson make sure you touch base with him at reception, he is a gem and will give you excellent advice and information. You will not find a better rep on any holiday *fact*. The resort was spotless as were the rooms (leave a small tip for the maid and she will spend a great time in your room) from friday to sunday the domincans sort of invade the resort for the weekend but they are so friendly and liven the place for a couple of days. There are plenty of thing to keep you busy. Like the archery and vollyball etc. Nothing too strainuous. The beach is also ultra clean and the staff remove any weed that makes its way to shore. The beach is lush by the way! There are daily pool exercises arranged by the staff.
Downers: the beer (Presidente)gave me and my father the gallops. A tip was expected "american style" ie for everything from getting served at the bar to beyond. Which is rather annoying for Brits when you dont at any other all inclusive around the med or europe. It was inpossible too get served at the bar in the evening without a doller bill tip in your hand.
But all in all the holiday at he catalonia bavaro was awesome. Although it would not have been so good without Domingo from Thompsons.
