Wonderful get away

Hotel was very nice. Ride from airport was over an hour but we anticipated that. Lots of variety on restaurant choices, pool and Beach. Service staff from front desk to restaurant staff to housekeeping was very good. Resort has a wonderful secluded feel. Lots of lizards and lemurs on the walk from hotel to pool. Lights on the jungle walkway was a nice touch. Food was good but we're disappointed we had to buy bottles of wine at 2 restaurants. All inclusive means all inclusive...you should not have to buy wine. Beach was nice but lots of seaweed...not that the hotel has any control over that...they did clean beaches a lot to keep them as free of seaweed as possible.

Great Resort for the price!

We had a great time at Catalonia Royal Tulum the beach view was amazing & kept very clean by resort employees. We did go snorkeling at the resort & were amazed at the fish & sting rays we saw near the resort you don't have to swim far. The resort is small but you don't ever feel overcrowded. The food was good just be prepared to wait at the restaurants if you choose to eat later. (Maybe extra waiters would speed up the process) The only problem we had was with our transfer company back to the airport we were not on their list but did turn in our voucher & were given a time to be picked up. They did send a taxi for us & paid for it this put us behind schedule & we didn't have much time at the airport but we made it. Overall great small resort employees are awesome!

Decent getaway

Catalonia Royal Tulum, overall is a decent resort but I was in no way wowed by it. We met people who had stayed at this resort 5, 10 plus times & I just don't see why. I have nothing really negative to say about it, it just wasn't that fabulous in my opinion. The room was fine, we did ask for a single King bed but we got a double Queen. We didn't spend much time in the room other than to sleep so it was okay. The pool was nice, pretty quite during the day, got a little more lively in the afternoon/evening. There is no swim up bar which would have been nice. The drinks were average in my opinion, it took a couple days before I really found drinks I liked. The daytime barteneders aren't near as good as the night shift. The nightlife was lacking. I was excited to read that they have a nightly show, but they weren't what I had thought they would be. The staff was very friendly, we had no bad experience with them. The resort is kind of set in a long narrow stip, so rooms are a bit of a walk from the beach/pool area if you're in one of the front buildings. It wasn't bad of a walk though, just try not to forget anything in your room when you go to the beach or pool for the day. All in all we had a good vacation but it's just not a resort that I would want to go back to again.

great getaway

We bought a last minute "deal" on a 4 night stay at Catalonia Royal Tulum and were very pleasantly surprised with our visit. We had a "privileged" room which gave us access to an exclusive restaurant, the Be Loved, which we found to be worth the extra associated cost. The others were OK, but the Be Loved restaurant would satisfy almost any foodie. There were other perks as well, but the better food and service at the exclusive venue was worth it alone as we are hardcore foodies. The only negative I could bring up is that there is a lot of walking from one end to the other of the resort and we also had a top floor room with no elevator service. It was hard on our old age joints, but not so bad that we considered asking to be moved. Plenty of entertainment options with average entertainers. The pool area and beach areas were superb with great wait service! We were impressed by the constant attention to upkeep of the cleanliness and appearance of both. We partook of some of the spa services and again were very pleased. The big question, would we go again? DEFINITELY!!!

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, adults-only escape haven. No kids means more cocktails for you.

The hammocks set up solely for you to chillax on the breath-stealing Xpu-Ha beach.

Diving into uber cool nearby cenotes to get the adrenaline rushing.

Unwinding during the soul-pleasing Mayan purification massage. Ahh.

 

What We'd Change

The restaurants don't stay open late, but if you work up an appetite shaking your hips on the dance floor, call the 24-hour room service and have a feast at your fingertips in no time.

 

Why You Should Go

It's an hour from the airport - patience, young jellyfish. You'll be happily beaching soon.

24-hour room service (read: food and drinks whenever you want it).

You can channel your inner-competitiveness in a game of bowling, billiards or ping pong.

Your beach bod will stay pristine with a gym and oodles of water sports on-site.
