Catalonia Bavaro Beach or Occidental Grand Punta Cana?

I have 7 ladies trying to decide between these 2 resorts.  Do you guys have any input on either one, or which one may offer something the other does not?  They both are pricing about the same.  They have narrowed it down to these 2 resorts, based on price, so I do not need recommendations for other resorts, just any input on these two?Also. My client saw rates for Catalonia Punt Cana on line, what is the difference between Catalonia Punt Cana and Catalonia Bavaro Beach.. All my Vendors I use, sell it as Catalonia Bavaro Beach, so I am confused what Catalonia Punt Cana is?I know there is a Royal but that is adults only, and a little too spendy for my clients.  THanks so much for input.AnnSee More
