Fun vacation and great value!

Loved Catalonia Riviera Maya's location WITHIN a gated community that allowed you to meander off the property and feel safe enjoying the local marina and surrounding commmunity. Rooms were adequate though my husband felt the air condition did not get very cold at night. Resort grounds were very nicely kept. There as an abundance of seaweed washing up on one side of the beach, but there was plenty of beach on the other side of the resort property as well as a protected lagoon to enjoy. The seaweed was managed well enough to avoid any awful smells through the bulk of the resort (not the case in the immediately adjoining Dreams resort which seemed completely permeated by the awful smell for half the week). Food was decent. Fair amount of options at the buffets, but if you want ala carte dining for dinner, be prepared to schedule those at the beginning of your stay! We tried to book on Tuesday and were told there were only two available slots (one for that evening and one for Friday). Resort staff was friendly, and service was great! Servers at dinner remembered us and asked if we wanted our preferred after dinner drinks. Maids did a good job leaving us fun towel animals or displays each day! We looked forward each day to seeing how they posed my stiffed animal with their creations. Resort location is fairly close to all the eco parks which could be a huge plus if you plan to visit them! We got a special deal that was a great value and would definitely go again for that price!

Would not go here again

First off, the room comfort level was horrible. We had to upgrade which was only $160 more and was very nice. The first room the shower was broken, the sheets feel like sand paper, and the air didn’t work. Regarding the food on the resort, everything is stale in the buffet and I’m not even a picky eater. The food was just so unsatisfying. If you made a dinner reservation it was good but you can only get 3 total. The beach was so small and there literally was seaweed covering the entire place. If there were chairs by the one small part of the beach (which you have to pay to be privileged) it was nice. There were never any chairs by the pool or beach. The staff was so amazing though.

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.
