Good hotel, friendly staff

Posted 05-Dec-2016
Pros: The location was great, friendly staff. Nice beach and pool.
Cons: Fans in the bathrooms, improve the buffet food!
Location: Location was great, lots of things to do nearby but so much at the resort to keep vacationers occupied.
Check in took longer than expected (about an hour) I think the gentleman helping us may have been new- but very nice. Our room was ok, TV wasn't great but who watches TV on vacation anyways so that was ok. Didn't like that there was no fan in the bathroom. There are 4 nice restaurants you can visit one time each (they punch your card at the door) it would be more enjoyable to be able to visit there more than once since the buffet is mediocre at best. A few friends we met at the hotel got sick after dinner at the Dominican Restaurant.. so my boyfriend and I were glad that we walked out after an hour and a half of waiting for our food while those around us who arrived after us were onto dessert. Blessing is disguise I guess. The brick oven pizza by the pool was good and the juice bar good. Bar's were good and the staff was very friendly. Very short walk to the beach and the pool. There were nightly shows at the outdoor theater which were very good!

Nice hotel, well kept.

Posted 05-Dec-2016
Hotel was nice. We upgraded to Privledged so you get a few extra perks. Hotel is a little more spread out than what I'm used to, but not bad. Probably 5 min walk front to back. Last Catalonia we stayed at everything was centrally located like the restaurants, pool, bars, buffets etc. Beach was great and there's a spot you can walk out really far and still waste deep. Probably a good 600yds or more. Only complaint I have is we never received or room service in the mornings ( but that's minimal because the breakfast buffet was just as good) and then the soliciting to the Pearl Club. They whisk you away trying to sell you something similar to a time share, and when you say no, they shove you out the back door. So if you say no right away you'll be fine, but they're pretty sneaky about just wanting to "show" you the club. If you're not interested.. Don't do it and you'll save some time.

Nice hotel close to the beach. Several restaurants

Posted 28-Nov-2016
I stayed in a privliged Room close to the beach at Royal. So we could use all the restaurants in Bavaro and Royal hotel, that was excellent!!! Some privilegies as private beach, pool only for adults. The only thing they should improve is the Room lighting it was a little dark, not good for a woman that needs to do a make up. The general was very good.

Not a great place to stay

Posted 28-Nov-2016
This hotel has potential but comes up short in almost every aspect. The food at the buffet wasn't good, the other restaurants were not bad, the pool was extremely crowded, as was the beach, the rooms were run down and never got very cool, there was a water leak in our bathroom, it was extremely difficult to get towels in the room or at pool. The days it rained there wasn't much activities available, LOTS of smokers everywhere, no designated smoking/non smoking areas. HARD sell for vacation club.. seemed as only if you upgrade to privelege or exclusive you get good service! Most of the staff wasn't friendly, didn't speak any English and didn't seem to care about service!

Punta Cana

Posted 20-Nov-2016
Pros: Our room was small, but comfortable for two people.
Cons: We did not like the fact we were given different color bracelets on arrival. It was never explained. What purpose did this serve?
Location: The location was perfect. It was only walking distance to the beach, pool and eateries.
We celebrated our 28th anniversary. We had a great time. The Staff were more than helpful.
