Beware, Beware, of the Timeshare presentations

The resort pool and beach was beautiful. The suites were not available as they were booked for travel club members prior to your booking for a room. Most people did not understand or claim they did not speak english when you had a problem and needed assistance. We upgraded to another room at the rate of $20 each night. People of color may be looked at as diferently from the other Americans or may be not be well accepted as others. Don't leave the resort. Don't accept any invitations for presentations for Vidanta. This is a bad deal. Understand the value of US dollars to Mexican dollars. Don't trust your TRANFER transportation agent inside the airport as he may rook you into an invitation for timeshare that you will regret when you buy a tour it is a way of getting you into a timeshare contract. Check your telephone carrier usage and excesss to tthe internet. Don't let happen to you what happened to us and many other people. Read the reiews for consumer complaints and Vidanta resorts. Happy to be back home safe and sound.

Large Family Vacation

This place was great for kids and families. All the pools and restourants are awesome. The beach is just ok, I have definitely stayed places with nicer beaches in the Riveria Maya. This is the best food I have ever had in Mexico. Our check in process was very bad, CheapCarrbuan messed up one of reservations. I was even more frustrated because I called to confirm the week before and was told everything was fine. I also wish the staff would enforce the no saving chairs policy but was very frustrating to see saved chairs with no one in them for hours and hours. A couple of other tips: if you leave any electronics out in the rom, they will by clean it. Also, if you want to eat at the Japanese restaurant, go there at 5:45 to get a reservation. I wish they would have told us these things at check in

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.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, family-friendly bundle of beachy greatness.

Throwing back a welcome cocktail after finally arriving in paradise.

The much-needed, all-soothing hydrotherapy treatment at Spa Alegria.

Movin' & groovin' at the weekly beach party (with a savory drink in hand, of course).

 

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

It's an hour from the airport - patience is a virtue. You'll be on the sand soon.

Between the gym, land sports and water sports, the vacay weight will be easy to keep off.

The nightly shows at the theater will keep you nice and entertained every evening.

Upgrade to Privileged and fancy a private lounge, spa benefits and the Pure bar on the beach.
