Outstanding resort for the money!

Check in was easy. 45 minute ride from the airport and great location away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun. Gorgeous landscaping. Fabulous beach with good snorkeling on a small coral area right off the beach. The staff did an outstanding job of clearing seaweed each morning. Nice variety of wildlife on site. Great variety of restaurants and the breakfast buffet in particular made us very happy! The staff were attentive and took great care of us in our desire to do nothing that would require us to work!! Room was good with a comfortable bed and a nice balcony that was mostly private. Close to sites in Tulum including ruins and several cenotes. All are easy to get to using the cheap public transpo that picks up all along the highway right outside the hotel. While the swim up pool bar was handy, I wish there had been another pool to allow for swimming instead of just gathering. But that is my only "complaint".

First Anniversary Trip

My wife and I went to Catalonia Royal Tulum for our first wedding anniversary. This resort exceeded our expectations in every area. The beach was absolutely breathtaking, exactly what we were hoping for when we planned the trip. The pool was really nice as well and the view of the ocean from the pool area was great. The food was very good everywhere we went, our favorite restaurants were BLoved and Tao Cat. The service also made our stay extra special. All of the employees seemed to genuinely care about making our visit more pleasant. From the servers, bartenders, hostesses, house keeping, everyone was excellent. We also appreciated that we weren't completely overwhelmed with vendors selling things everywhere we went. The games during the day around the pool area and the nightly shows / party afterwards were always really fun. We met some really incredible people from all over the world during our visit. This was one of the best vacations either of us have ever been on and we will most certainly be back! Eddy from the exclusive travelers club was the absolute best. We ran into him numerous times a day, most of the days we were there. He was extremely friendly and willing to help with any questions we had about the resort or the area (which was very much appreciated with this being our first visit to a Catalonia resort as well as Mexico). Alex (Alejandro) was always very helpful and we saw him quite frequently during our visit as well.

This place is simply amazing.

List of my experience. The Beach is simply the best beach I ever visited with some decent snorkeling right off the resort. Bring your gear. This is a half jungle resort. You get to interact with all kinds of wildlife. The service the food and pool are amazing. I do recommend you bring you own Bluetooth waterproof speaker to jam out there isn’t music at the pool. Also bring some bug spray for the outside restaurants at night the bugs are not to bad but got some mosquito bites. This resort is not for the partiers. Stay in Cancun if you want that. It’s great for couples and honeymooners who like to not wait for drinks or dinner and want to just relax and enjoy the beach and oceans. Hanging on the beach all day never got old and you can walk down the beach each way for a mile or so and see some turtle nests. I can’t say enough about how great this trip was and service was. Amazing time. I highly recommend this place for couples and would go back in a heartbeat.

This place is simply amazing. This place is simply amazing.

Beautiful, but not 4 stars.

I chose this based on the ratings (I shouldn't have). The resort is beautiful, mainly because of the beach and the friendly staff. The place itself is ok. old. corny. (they have love signs on the path to the pool... lol). I keep comparing it to previous "4 star" resorts I've stayed at in the same area (Barcelo, for example), and it can't really compare... I would rate this as a 3-star/3.5 star resort.

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.
