Amazing getaway

Usually people say, "You get what you pay for," however, that could not be further from the truth in this case. We arrived early on Sunday morning. Since the room was not ready, they allowed us access to the bars/restaurants and pools, we even got checked in three hours early. From the reviews, we decided to upgrade to the "privileged suite". I know we saved 10% on the spa services, and I believe the rooms were a little nicer, however, I didn't talk to anyone that did not purchase that upgrade, so I am not sure of all the differences. We read a lot of reviews about reps trying to sell a time share, and we avoided that piece all together- we didn't want to waste time when we could be doing other activities. The pool was great, however, I spent most of the time at the beach. The water was pristine. Probably the clearest water I have ever seen. That was my favorite part. People left us alone for the most part. Although occasionally someone did come around and ask to take our drink order, which was great. There is some walking from the room to the beach and pool area, but its a nice walk- all through a rain forest. There are some animals that come out to greet you. They are looking for food. I did feed them once, and ended up throwing my banana into the forest because they all started coming after me and fighting for it- haha. My only complaint about the resort is they only give you two beach towels per day. So, you cannot exchange them until later on that evening. I wish they had a hut where you could exchange them, but really if that is my only complaint, I would say the hotel is doing pretty well. The food was good, lots of selections- drinks were good. The beer was a little on the warm side, but who cares, you are in paradise. Overall, it was a great trip for the money, and I am looking forward to going back!

Perfect Getaway

We went Sept 6-13, 2016 for our honeymoon. We have been to Mexico all-inclusive resorts before and were not un-satisfied, but not wowed. Catalonia was different, we were blown away! The resort is just amazing. almost everyone we met was a returning visitor to Catalonia, and we met a lot of people! There are many activities in the day and night if you're looking for something new, or the beach is the most beautiful we have seen. Food is actually FANTASTIC, I recommend the tenderloin at the steak house. We did not upgrade, didn't see the value in just an extra restaurant and fancier room, but a couple people we talked to said the restaurant was worth it. Drinks are amazing, cappuccino bars, jungle paradise, I don't know what else to say besides we literally did not dislike one thing. Have fun :)

Perfection

My husband I were in dire need of an adult only couples vacation. We were also looking for a good deal. Mexico was never on our "go to" list but after weeks of comparing several resorts all over the Caribbean, we settled on Catalonia Royal Tulum. Our room was clean and large. The pillows felt like they were manufactured in the clouds of heaven, so I got some of the best nights sleep that I have in a long time. The food was wonderful. We booked a privileged room so we didn't visit the buffets very often aside from the amazing breakfast buffet. The a la carte dining options were to die for. Our favorite restaurant was B Loved which is right on the beach in their "privileged" area. We also adored the Italian Toscana restaurant and Tappas which offers a large array of delicious small plates. Drinks were good but with a tip here and there, they increased in strength and the bartenders quickly learned our favorites. The beach is soft and white and the water is a wonderful jade color. If you enjoy walking the beach, the stretch is quiet and long. The staff was amazing and friendly. The one downside was the 90 presentation for the travel club which we would promptly decline on our next visit. It's a sales pitch which may work well for some people but not for our family. Overall, this resort is beautiful. Perfect for adults in their mid thirties and up who want to enjoy quiet, excursions or nightlife.

The resort is absolutely beautiful, well manicured and maintained. Rooms were modern and clean, staff very helpful and friendly. Food was good and there are many options available. My boyfriend got very ill for several days of our vacation, not sure if it was food related or a montizumo's revenge type bug but that was very unpleasant. Some cons: - We arrived at the resort around 11AM as we had a very early direct flight. By the time we arrived at the resort, we had been traveling for almost 10 hours. We were told that we could check into our room only if we upgraded to Privileged. If we did not, our room would not be available until 4pm. Since we were so tired, we decided to spend the extra money but there are really no advantages to the Privileged. They sell it that the building/room is closer to the beach which is true however it is farthest from the lobby and the restaurants and general area so that doesn't really justify the cost. There are other amenities but they aren't worth it either (10% off which again isn't worth the savings for what you pay for Privileged) - The beach is beautiful however it is very crowded and all of the chairs/loungers are lined up and not enough room to spread out and have some 'space'. (Think Stadium seating) Room Service - Since my BF was ill, I did not go to dinner a few nights and decided to order room service which is supposed to be available 24 hours. However the room service menu is broken down my hours and what is available. For example...From 6-11pm, there are only 3 or 4 options you can order which is silly. All in all, I think I would go back or visit another Catalonia property, but I certainly would not upgrade or pay for any extras.

What's to Love

We love Xpu-Ha Beach. The sands are silky and pearly-white, and the big hammocks on the beach are a great way to laze the day away.

Hotel Description

Catalonia Royal Tulum: Noble Beach Prize Winner - Best Beach Bliss

Wander beneath the mangrove trees and play in a paradise-like jungle setting along the Mayan Riviera at the all inclusive, adult-only Catalonia Royal Tulum Beach & Spa Resort. Located beachfront and surrounded by lush tropical greenery, this resort will have you reclining by the dazzling Caribbean with a welcome cocktail in hand faster than you can say "booked!"

Dangle your toes in the turquoise waters of one of Mexico's finest beaches, Xpu-Ha, or nestle into a beach hammock with your honey with a fresh-squeezed juice from beachside bar, Maa-Loo. After a morning spent by the sea, make your way along a jungle path and over quaint wooden bridges to discover naturally created freshwater sinkholes (or, cenotes) and the resort's glittering pool. Cool off with a dip in the crystal clear waters or lounge in the sun with a cocktail from the poolside Tequila Bar.

For lunch, settle in the shade under the thatched-roof of La Palapa (one of seven delectable on-site eateries), where a delicious International buffet is accompanied by sweet, tropical breezes. And when the sun begins to sink, slip into your favorite outfit for a romantic dinner at the Italian La Toscana. Or, take your partner on a civilized adventure into the Mexican jungle--located next to a cenote in the middle of the tropical forest lies the hotel's stylish Terrace Tapas Lounge & Bar. After dinner, make good use of your all inclusive status and burn up the dance floor at the disco, Zen, or exchange some smoldering glances over a drink at Las Margaritas.

Wake up with sore from dancing the night away? Head to on-site Alegria Spa for 14 massage and therapy booths ready to rub away any kinks from last night's parties. Re-energized and ready for adventure, gather your buddies for a game of water polo, or hop in a canoe and paddle out into the glistening waves with your sweetheart. And don't worry if you get back later than planned. In-room meal service on your room's balcony or terrace is available day or night.
