Very nice, smaller resort

Wow-this place was impressive. Stayed in a privileged room with special perks. Way worth it. Friendly staff, clean resort, very good food. Spa was awesome too. Beach a bit rocky in some areas but beautiful. Would definitely return.

Surprised - so much nicer than expected

Last minute trip. Booked it based on price and reviews. Did not have very high expectations and was pleasantly surprised. First of all it is clean!! And service is great. We upgraded to prestige. The cons are that unless you get to the pool or beach super early, it is difficult to find seats. Food was pretty good but we were not able to get reservations to some of the more popular restaurants. Staff is super nice and helpful!

Great Getaway

The resort was very nice with the best resort food I have had. The drive from the airport was further than mentioned so that was disappointing. Also, the bars didn't open till 11am and online it says 10am. Overall very nice and relaxing also great service.

Stayed 9 nights in a Privileged Superior Ocean View room. Room looked to be renovated at some point in time but not very well. The “ocean view” was only viewable when standing against the railing of the balcony. Separate “privileged” beach was located on a lagoon with stagnant water and not the ocean. Privileged pool was the smallest of all the pools and had no swim up bar or servers to bring drinks even. Beach was full of rocks but swimmable. Food was pretty good all around. All bars besides the night club closed by 11pm. Staff was always extremely helpful and friendly. Resort is located in a gated community and felt completely safe walking around off the resort, even found a decent bar “nauti burro” not too far away with good food and live music.

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.

Only guests staying in Privileged rooms get access to all seven a la carte restaurants while guests in other rooms have access to three--good thing they are delicious either way!


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.
