Great location for a honeymoon- great value

Catalonia was the perfect spot for our honeymoon. We had such a fantastic experience. Not only was booking everything through cheap carribean so easy (transportation and flights included), it was all top notch and organized perfectly. It was so nice to arrive at the airport and not have to stress about finding a ride to the resort. The room (privileged), pool, restaurants, and staff were all amazing. We had such great service everywhere we went and staff was all so nice and accommodating. The ONLY downside would be that the menu options were pretty small.. but everything was so good that it didn’t matter all that much. If you’re a snack food person (like me) bring your own because those options are pretty scarce (and expensive in the gift shop). Would totally recommend to a friend, family member, stranger, whatever. So happy we chose Catalonia.

A Gem In The Jungle

I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely The Catalonia Royal Tulum is. It's not as glossy as some resorts but has a more rustic, close to nature feel. None of the rooms have views as they all overlook a central dense jungle corridor that runs from the lobby down to the pool. I didn't mind this though as we spent very little time in the room and it was perfectly comfortable otherwise. It had a large sofa which was good as there were 3 of us girls and the staff made it up as a bed for us every day. We loved the walk through the jungle corridor as it is full of coatis, agutis, iguanas and some cats. It's beautifully lighted at night too. The beach is great - very soft white sand. The seaweed situation was variable from day to day but we did get in the sea every day. The hotel staff works hard to clear it. I recommend the upgrade to Privileged as the access to the seafood restaurant was worth it. The food in the other specialty restaurants was good too though. The buffet food was fine but not too exciting. Service was mostly attentive and friendly throughout. The pool bartenders were not so much and could have taken a leaf from the lobby bartenders who were funny and sweet as they crafted some excellent cocktails. Our biggest complaint was with the towels. You were allocated only one each a day and they were collected and replaced in your room. I want to be able to change towels as I need after a swim and drop them off at the pool or building lobby so I am not taking a sandy towel back to my room. But the resort is very well priced so I guess there have to be cost savings somewhere and I would rather it in the towels rather than food and alcohol. I would certainly go back, particularly after the swim up pool, which is currently being built, opens. One tip: the resort is being eco conscious which is great but be sure to take a thermal cup with you as you could not get coffee in to go cups and they would not allow china ones on the beach. You may also want to take a reusable straw.

Catalonia Royal Tulum

The resort at Catalonia Royal Tulum is lovely, the grounds are beautiful and well-kept and there is local wildlife that can be enjoyed on the property as well. The beach was full of seaweed unfortunately when we were there, not sure if that is a seasonal thing or just due to the location, but it is still lovely to sit on a hammock and watch the waves crash. Also, if you want to, there is some snorkeling in the water right on the property, it isn't a reef, but there are still some nice fish to see! The pool is nice and big, unfortunately they were doing construction while we were there on a new swim-up bar, so there was only one bar near the pool to get drinks. The drinks were pretty strong, but so sugary, and unfortunately I do not think they use any real fruit juice. I'd suggest to try a margarita or mango tango and then switch to liquor and soda for the majority of the trip! Overall the service is great, the staff are friendly and the rooms/beds are comfortable. The food is good to average I'd say, but the breakfast buffet with the make-your-own omelets is great and the best meal we had was definitely at the steakhouse! I would recommend this resort to anyone wanting to get away without the noise of kids and just enjoy some R&R, its definitely a good deal for the price and you're closer to some other attractions like Tulum and Coba, which I definitely recommend to check out!

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.

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.
