Sooooo good!

We had never done an all-inclusive before and weren't sure it was our thing. It was so good. We upgraded to the "Privileged" status, and it was worth it for the Bloved restaurant alone,as well as all the other perks. The grounds are beautiful, quiet and intimate, and the beach is gorgeous. We were there at a slow time, so had no trouble getting loungers, I imagine at peak season you have to stake a claim early. All the restaurants are really great except the steak house, our steaks were tough and overcooked. The Mexican, Spanish and fine dining/show place (extra charge) were terrific. Because it is adults only, they don't have to have kid food on the buffet, so it was more interesting than we expected. If you are looking for a party, this is not the place for you. If what you want is some quiet bliss with someone you love, it is perfect. We will definitely return.

More Than Expected

Beautiful beach/water but a little crowded. Not as crowded in Privileged area. Never had trouble getting a chair and love the bean bag chairs on the beach. Good restaurant choices and nice buffets (and that is not something I usually enjoy). Beach service was good. And all of the staff is very friendly. Lots of organic/fresh fruit and juices, which we really enjoyed. Privileged is worth the extra cost, even if you only go privileged to have access to Bloved restaurant. Bloved is exceptional. It is on the beach and both the food and bar are fantastic. Lots of smokers and women do go topless on the beach. Gym is small but has enough for a quick workout. We did a Privilege Deluxe room and were not overly impressed. Bed was comfortable but not as nice as some other resorts we have visited. We had a third floor room and were moved to the bottom floor due to looking over the tops of trees. Be aware that none of the rooms have a view, you are in the jungle. I would return to this resort.

Amazing Anniversary Trip

We just returned from Catalonia Royal Tulum yesterday and had the best time celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary! We were offered Pina Coladas before we even checked in, and our luggage met us in our room. There are 6 buildings with rooms, all along a tree-covered stone pathway from the lobby to the pool/beach area. We enjoyed this short walk every time we made it, as there's wildlife along the way, our favorite being the coatis (raccoon-like animals). The different restaurants are spread out along this path. While the little walk may be a deterrent to some, we enjoyed the exercise and the scenery. The beach was the real winner for us! Soft white sand, clear water with a smooth ocean floor, and activities. We kayaked, paddle boarded, partook in "aqua gym", played beach volleyball, and relaxed. This trip was everything we hoped for!

Truly Paradise

My now husband and I just got back from Catalonia Royal Tulum for our honeymoon. We absolutely fell in love with this resort. It was my first time in Mexico, but my husbands 8th time. They upgraded our room without us asking and they gave us a "Just Married" sash to put on our door. The staff was absolutely wonderful. From the front desk, to the bellhop, to the maids, to the bartenders, everyone was absolutely wonderful. They treated us so kindly and made our experience so memorable. The cocktail staff around the pool and beach were fast, kind, and very fun to chat with - even if your Spanish is sub-par. Every morning the staff racked and cleaned the beach as well as the stone walk way leading to the pool. The staff goes above and beyond for you and are such kind and wonderful people. The activities crew was fun and got people involved in daily activities without making you feel obligated to participate. There are 6 restaurants, all of which we loved. We were both so happy with the customer service, food, beach, and overall experience of our stay here. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone.

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.
