Good Value. Smaller Riv Maya Resort

Good Value. Resort has a lot to offer but is on smaller plot than some other Riv Maya resorts. It did make it easier to meet a lot of people if you wanted to. Beach was also smaller and appeared rocky so didn't use it. Pools were a good temperature. Japanese restaurant was very good. Steak restaurant was good. Buffets usually good but had one night not so good.

My husband and I wanted a little getaway in September and booked a week with Catalonia Riviera Maya through Cheap Carribean. We were not disappointed. The Staff was wonderful from the front desk to housekeeping and everything in between. We did not upgrade but felt that the value we received was fine. The bartenders and servers in the bars and restaurants were professional and we enjoyed every minuet of our stay. If I had one complaint it was the food at the buffets. It was very bland and basically tasteless but the food at the specialty restaurants was very good and presented very well. I understand that you have to make food for the masses but I wish that there was a section that had some flavor. Mexican food should taste like Mexican food and have salsas that have spice to it. The grounds were meticulously kept and very beautiful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and I loved the fact that we were greeted each time we pasted someone in the halls or grounds in the entire resort. The staff always seemed to have a smile on their faces.

Amazing trip and resort

This resort is simply amazing and I have zero complaints! I have stayed here three times and every time it seems to get better and better. I always stay in the suites section of the resort and the rooms are beautiful. The suite we stayed in was great. It had two different room areas, one with a king size bed, tv and the other with couches and another tv and decor. The bathroom was large with two sinks and a separated room for the toilet and then a large shower. The closet space was very large and it also had cabinets and a safe. The balcony was amazing! It had a plunge pool on one side and two chairs/table on the other side. The housekeeping came twice a day and left champagne, flowers, chocolates and fruits at different times. The check in and out service is extremely fast and efficient. The door staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurants are great! There are 5 restaurants that I've been to, two Italian, tapas, Mexican, Japanese and then two buffets that are open for breakfast lunch and dinner and one snack bar/buffet. All of the restaurants are great! The swim up bar is my favorite (two swim up bars total, one in privileged pool and one in main pool). It is very fun and the bartenders are great! The drinks are amazing and they will make you any customized drink as well. Amazing service and it is always very clean. The Pure bar is by the beach and is very cute and great service. There is also a small beach bar that is very cute. The lounge area is amazing too. There are so many different options to lay by the beach- beds, lounge chairs, bean bags, lounge beds, and hammocks. You can do something different each day. Overall it is my absolute favorite resort and vacation spot! I highly recommend this resort. The resort in general is simply beautiful too!

Great vaca!!

The place was beautiful! The food was awesome, definitely recommend the steak house and tapas. Getting the privilege was the best decision because you get to go to an awesome bar and beach set up, as well as course meals for breakfast and lunch in addition to dinner. It also included snorkels, a little sailing trip, and a mini spa hour get away. The service was amazing from the bars to the restaurants. Juan and Rafael at the Pure bar in privilege were so amazing!!! They made us feel so welcome and some pretty awesome drinks. The pools were clean. The ONLY thing we saw as an issue was they over booked the King bed rooms so we had to stay in a 2 full bed room but moved early the next morning. There were also small bugs in the room that BITE! But this may be something hard to avoid in Mexico. Highly recommend, great price and amazing vaca. Recommend bringing extra for tips because the staff deserves it. Thank you for an amazing September getaway!

What's to Love

The suites are awesome and offer a ton of space to spread out, which is great when you're traveling with the family or a group.

 

What We'd Change

Catalonia Resort Riviera Maya has expansive grounds but doesn't feel like a mega-resort. Its rooms are housed in smaller buildings and villas and the natural setting keeps it feeling intimate.

 

Why You Should Go

The activities list goes on and on! Between the fun on the water, under the water and in the sun, there's literally something for everyone we know!

Hotel Description

Catalonia Riviera Maya Resort & Spa: Relax with All-Inclusive Style

Want to feel the tide wash over your skin while lying on a soft sandy beach and the kids are off playing somewhere? Get yourself to Catalonia Riviera Maya Resort & Spa, in the beautiful town of Puerto Aventuras, where your dreams await. If you're in need of some major relaxation under the warm, tropical sun, the Catalonia is a good place to start.

Set along the pearly sands of the Mayan Riviera, Catalonia Riviera Maya has five shimmering pools that wind through the property, providing ample opportunity for you to float the day away, with frequent stops at the swim-up bar, of course. Slice through the water windsurfing, pedal boating or kayaking, or interact with the wondrous world below with the help of scuba and snorkel gear. Hit the sun-drenched sands of Catalonia Riviera Maya and the beach volleyball court, or make your way back to the glimmering pool to set and spike the day away over the in-pool net.

Let the relaxing begin at Spa Alegria, the resort's on-site, one-stop, relaxation spot, where you will be faced with a wealth of choice treatments. Try a hydrotherapy treatment, visit the sauna, or double-dip between the pool and the Jacuzzi. Grab a fresh elixir from the juice bar, wander down to a private beach palapa for a couple's beachfront massage, and then get primped for a special evening at the on-site salon.

After an afternoon of lazing, fuel up at one of the resort's restaurants. Sample the tapas at Terrace, or take in a theme night at the ocean-side La Brisa. Then, get your drink on during your night tour of the resort's seven lively bars, including La Pinata, the dance-'til-you-drop disco.

Retire your tangoed toes and start afresh in the morning with a hearty breakfast, before you head out for a day of adventuring. Take the kiddies on a stroll to the nearby marina, or give them a day to themselves at the Kids Club while you get in a round of golf at the nearby, nine-hole Puerto Aventuras Golf Club, designed by Tom Lehman. If you prefer slower moves, fit in a yoga or Pilates class in the resort's state-of-the-art fitness center.

Remember, it's your vacation. Relax and enjoy.
