Hotel Overview

The Caribbean is awaiting your arrival so that you can experience an unforgettable vacation on the south coast of the Dominican Republic at the all-inclusive Catalonia Bayahibe. The beaches and vegetation are stunning and the infinite horizons will leave you breathless. Located in one of the most beautiful areas in the country, specifically on Bayahibe's white sand beach, the scenery will amaze you. This all-inclusive resort is located just 25 minutes from La Romana Airport and 62 miles from Punta Cana International Airport. 

The Catalonia Bayahibe has been designed for you to enjoy your stay with various sports and leisure activities plus an array of delicious food and cocktails to keep you satiated. Beautiful tropical gardens, which you can view from all of the rooms, surround the Caribbean villas, which form the hotel. All of the rooms are spacious, welcoming, and feature soft decor in tropical tones. 

The attractive theme restaurants allow you to enjoy a selection of Spanish avant-garde tapas. Try exquisite Italian a la carte dishes. Discover genuine Caribbean cuisine and enjoy the specialties of the steak house in American surroundings.

For the more active guests, a daily program of activities in several languages (in the pool and on the beach) is available. Some of the activities include aerobics, volleyball, water gymnastics, tennis, soccer, petanque, ping-pong, and archery. If you prefer to play in the water, try non-motorized aquatic sports (snorkeling not included) and test scuba diving in the pool. If you love to dance the night away and play after dark, experience the Discotheque and nighttime entertainment with shows every night in the theater. The Children's club (3 to 12 years) and Junior Club (13 to 17 years) are also available to keep the kids and teens entertained.

    Camera guasta

    Camera guasta. I am at catalonia bayahibe since monday and I have a problem with my room since i arrived. The shower leaks, the drain doesn't work well, and the bathroom door doesn't close. After 3 days they fixed, quite bad, only shower. I'm sorry but I don't recommend it.

    Beverly satisfied but food and animation could be better

    The food could be tastier and is often cold… and animation could be better. The creperie was not functioning well. Few crepe stations for so many people, 40 minutes waiting for a crepe… The beach, pool and bars are good and I am satisfied with the room (red bracelet).

    Almost fantastic

    The Excellent: the beach, by far is one of the best and there’s no sargassum in the area so absolutely perfect. We went snorkeling right off the shore and saw some amazing sea life. Also the bartender at Terrace - Leonel went above and beyond and deserves to be recognized. The Good: rooms were clean and spacious, the grounds are well kept. Entertainment was always available if wanted but also easy enough to get away from if needing peace and quiet. There was never a lack of loungers at the beach or the pool even though they claimed the hotel was full. Reservations were easy to make through the app and guest services (with some prodding) were able to schedule daily room service with coffee, milk for the baby, and some breads and fruits at the same time daily (setting it up this way made for prompt service). There were some servers who stood out: Heidi, Sylvia, Lisset, Candy, Jasson, and Guicsi. Food was good. It wasn’t excelllent but I don’t expect that from resorts. We were always able to find something to eat and sometimes we’re pleasantly surprised. I recommend the ossobucco at the Italian place and the goat dish at Yucca. The Mediocre: the minibar only had beer as a boozy option, no little bottles of alcohol. There was no service at the pool or the beach (had to go to the bar). The service in general in most restaurants was kind of slow with the exception of the staff mentioned in the section above. Tipping helped this but only to a point. AC went out in our room at one point but they did get it fixed by night time. The towel cards were not my favorite but they weren’t super militant about it like some resorts. It was hard to communicate with some folks when ordering because of the language barrier (my Spanish is quite mediocre and it could be my fault). The Bad: none of the dining options were indoors, meaning no AC. It was hot there and very tolerable doing beach and pool activities all day but after showering and getting dressed up it was very uncomfortable to have dinner because we were constantly sweating. The only place to escape the heat was our room or their shopping center. The Worst: having dinner at the Terrace restaurant was really problematic. The first time we tried we got seated and waited for about 30 minutes to have our order taken. We were hungry so we left and went to the buffet. The second time we tried we already knew what we wanted to order and said we were ready when we got seated. They took our order and brought the apps. Then we sat for 30 minutes after finishing the apps with empty dishes on our table and empty water and wine glasses. They didn’t come back with our main course or to refill our drinks. I asked someone there and seemingly had to place a new order. We eventually got food but it was like a 3 hour experience. Mostly not enjoyable. Overall I think the resort was quite nice but we won’t be coming back because of the lack of indoor dining, definitely not in July at least. Thanks for reading and safe travels!
