This stylish Spanish brand is becoming hot property for agents who like to go the extra mile for their Dominican Republic clients—so much so that Transat has secured the exclusive rights to sell the Catalonia Bavaro Beach, Golf & Casino  Resort to clients in Canada.

“This is a great family-friendly option because it’s an active resort with one big recently-renovated pool in the middle,” Greta Hidalgo, Catalonia’s sales manager for North America, Mexico and the Dominican Republic, told Open Jaw. 

“I just love that the Catalonia Bavaro Beach has something for everyone. It’s very lively. You see everyone in the family—whether it’s the grandparents or the parents or the kids—really enjoying themselves at this resort.” 

At a Glance:

  • 711 junior suites with terraces or balconies spread among 30 villas
  • 10 restaurants; no reservations required
  • Six bars, including a pool bar
  • Spa
  • Gym and sports facilities
  • Two golf courses (nine-hole and 18-hole)
  • Clubs for kids and teenagers
  • Coffee shop
  • 2,000-square-metre swimming pool with kids area
  • Free WiFi
  • Pearl Beach Club

The property holds an enviable position on Playa Bavaro, one of the most beautiful beach areas in the Dominican Republic -- and right next door to its sister-hotel, the stylish, adult-only Catalonia Royal Bavaro. Transat also has the exclusive rights to sell that property to the Canadian market.

“This is the best beach in Punta Cana,” stated Hidalgo. “It’s very exclusive. There are no rocks and it’s not wavy at all, so it’s a lot calmer than the other beach areas. There are also a few reefs in the bay, so clients can go snorkelling and try out some of the water activities. After all, all of the non-motorized water activities at our resorts are free.”

Golf is another big selling point at the Catalonia Bavaro Beach. 

“We have two courses,” explained Hidalgo. “The Cabeza de Toro is a nine-hole and the Caribe Golf Club is 18-hole. The 9-hole course is right in front of the property and the 18-hole course is next to it. 

“The courses are right there, so our guests don’t have to take transportation. They just have to go to the lobby and our golf team will take them there by cart. Our golfers just love it.”

The property also has an impressive culinary offering, from its casual Gran Caribe buffet to fine Italian dining in La Toscana, Asian cuisine in Mikado, steakhouse treats in Rodeo, mouth-watering pizza in Pizzeria Sorrento and tasty crepes in the Bretonne Crêperie -- to name just a few of the options! 

“Families just love the Catalonia Bavaro Beach,” stressed Hidalgo. “We provide the best service in the perfect location and we have a great relationship between price and quality. I’m sure it will be a good fit for your client’s vacation budget too.”
