This is our 3rd time traveling to the Dominican Republic. This was our first time at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro. We stayed on the Adults only side. We ate at mostly restaurants for the duration of our trip. The rooms are very spacious and beautiful. Very clean with beautiful decor. Every balcony comes with a hammock which was nice to use in the mornings. The beach is beautiful! One of the reasons we picked this resort (not only for it's great reviews) was because of the reef right in front of it. We spend hours snorkeling. Lots of beautiful tropical fish. We even swam further and encountered a barracuda! Pretty scary looking fish but harmless to humans.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
The only con.... the extremely pushy time share people. They try to lure you in with an advertisement for a $1000 dollar gift. My parents unfortunately were scammed by these people and bought time shares, only to later find out that they could only use them at certain times of the year and if you wanted to book a trip you would have to book it at least 2 years in advance. Anyways just a warning.
