Huge disappointment

I have never written a review but feel compelled this time. My husband and I decided to come here for our anniversary. I booked the Catalonia PRIVILEGED Maroma but was told when we arrived we did not have privileged status so I had to upgrade for a hefty fee. I blame the website for it's deceptive listing so please watch out for that and do your homework. I wish I would have! First I will list all the pros. Then I will list the cons. Pros: -Excellent beach -Attentive beach waiter -Very clean everywhere -Quiet (not a rowdy crowd) -Pretty courtyard type area between the buildings -Nature friendly (coati's roaming around along with other wildlife) Cons: -The food had NO flavor (What I mean by this is that they did not add salt to ANYTHING except the rims of glasses when you ordered your drink. There was absolutely no spice in the food either. I am not exaggerating. Even the steak was completely naked and without salt or pepper. Gross!) -My husband and I both had to pull small chicken bones out of our mouth when eating our food. The chicken enchiladas (shredded chicken) cannot be trusted! -The restaurants are limited as far as how often you can go. We stayed 6 days and got a pass for 3 dinners in the ala carte restaurants. The only other option was the buffet. To me, that isn't "all-inclusive". -The maid turned on our alarm in the room each day so it went off at midnight two nights before we started to catch her little game. -My husband's shirt was stolen from the room as well. -There were people continually trying to sell stuff, either while you were trying to relax on the beach or when you walked by them anywhere else on the property. -The staff was also extremely slow. Slow at check-in and getting our luggage, slow at making drinks, and slow at other services. Hopefully this review will serve as a warning to those who are expecting good food and a good time.

Great trip for the cost

This was definitely worth the low price. Service is excellent (take lots of $1's and $5's for tips, they earn $8-10 a DAY). Best beach I have ever been on. They work hard to clean the seaweed, and it's not like the slimy stuff on the east coast, so it is no big deal. Rooms are good. Get the privileged package for a little bit more. You get better dining options. The Terrace for breakfast and lunch is amazing.The Terrace/Tapas for dinner is horrible. The three restaurants are okay to good. It's not like fine dining at home. The buffet for breakfast is great, but for dinner can be hit or miss. The service is amazing. A lot of reviews on TA compare this to Secrets etc. Well, Secrets costs 3x the cost of Catalonia. We liked the small hotel vibe and the European feel. We will go back.

Second trip

I stayed here about 8 years ago and this place has only gotten better. The staff are SO VERY friendly and helpful. The restaurant food is good, the beach is beautiful and I wish I could go back next week. I can assure you I will be going back here in 2018. I love this resort.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, everything-you-want-on-the-beach fest.

The holistic treatments, sensations and aromas of the spa, Jacuzzi & sauna. Melting, yet?

Chillaxing by the gorgeous curvy pool, dipping in and out of our booze snooze.

The Tequila bar that's open 24/7. Woot!

 

What We'd Change

Catalonia Privileged Maroma is consistently full of activity and might not be the best spot for quiet time. If you need a little relaxation, the spa offers a great variety of treatments that allow you to drift away.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 25 miles from the airport & 12.5 miles away from Playa del Carmen.

Don't miss checking out Tres Rios Nature Park, Chichen Itza & the cenotes.

Four beautiful golf courses are nearby. Bring your A game.

There's a kids' club with swing sets & more to occupy the fleeting attention of your munchkins.
