True Paradise

Just returned from a 4 night stay with my fiance and wish we never had to come home. We have stayed at another all-inclusive adults only in the DR a couple years ago and this was a tremendously better experience. A few things to note: *the transportation provided took about 1.5hrs to get here after dropping others off, still worth it to not have to worry about taxi etc. *only one pool, but large enough it never felt crowded (second week of November though so not sure about peak season). *all restaurants and drinks were really good! We were extremely happy. We did wish there were little snacks at the bars...peanuts, popcorn etc to grab. Yes you can get foods to go but in general even for lunch you have to sit down (and at least have a shirt on). Pls get the mole enchiladas from the Mexican restaurant, it was the best entree in our opinion on the whole resort. *we upgraded to priveleged deluxe room and I would recommend. You have access to another restaurant (beach front) that was really good and you have access to a private beach section with the best cushioned loungers... I napped for 3 days straight. *afternoon storms are beautiful, don't stress about watching the forecast before your trip. Everyone would take cover outside until it passed. *Beach gorgeous, well maintained, can snorkel etc. Overall we were blown away by how gorgeous the grounds were (and maintained). Like walking through a tropical paradise... We didn't even leave the resort for any excursions this time bc we didn't want to miss a minute there. I can't recommend this location enough. I would come back here in a heartbeat.

Great trip and fanstic value for the money.

The resort is beautiful. We've been on 4 other similar vacations and the beach here is truly special. You have a nice stretch of coast to walk and the water turned up just enough waves to have some fun in. I can't say enough about the ocean view, beach side lounging, and views from a couple of the restaurants. A+ Drinks and food were good. Not great. We've had great all inclusive food, but generally for at least another 50% in cost. We found a few restaurants as hits and a couple misses. Something for everyone, no lines, very happy with food and drink. Enjoyed the coffee. Rooms are clean, modern (we were in a privileged room), and comfortable. Your balcony will overlook the forest in the middle of the resort and not much else. The trees and wildlife in the middle are really cool to walk through. The entire place has a great, calm vibe. For a few hours everyday we also found ourselves hanging with the bar pool people, mingling and drinking. It was a lot of fun. The resort is small enough that you make some friends and bump into each other often. Played pool and sand volleyball, went to a couple awkward shows, and overall really enjoyed ourselves. I knocked a point for service as, the staff was super friendly, but waitstaff and bartenders were fairly serious, which surprised us. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Catalonia Magic

The Catalonia Royal Tulum in Cancun was a great value and we had a great time. The staff is incredibly friendly. The resort - rooms, dining areas, pool, beach - all of it - is spotless. I really appreciated that. The alcohol flows and the waitstaff is eager to please, circling the pool and beach areas so you never need to move from your lounge! The architecture and design is spectacular. This is not a "corporate" resort. Lit stone paths and wood bridges wind through mangroves and jungle. Coati play along the route. Each unit is nestled in the jungle, so you have plenty of privacy. The rooms are beautiful and the bed is comfy. The pool is glorious. Sparkling and massive you can do laps and not bother anyone else. The beach is a perfect section of sugar-sand - and plenty of room to lounge without being on top of your neighbor. Criticisms are few and should not sway your choice of this resort. (1) The breakfast and lunch buffets are very good. Dinner, not so much. While the resort has several restaurants (steak house, Asian, Mexican, Italian, a pay-restaurant not included in all-inclusive, and the restaurant for privileged members, the food is not great. Meat is over-cooked. Dishes have little spice. They need Gordon Ramsay's help. We ordered room service twice and that was average. Not impressed with the dinner options at all. (2) We had trouble with the room "service." First, we had to chase the maid service to get our room cleaned. Second, I am an early riser and prefer to have a hot cup of coffee while my man snoozes - but the in room coffee was never refilled. We asked every morning and over the week, never received coffee. I guess they expect you to contact room service. Last - and this is not a criticism but a warning: The mosquitoes are assassins. You MUST bring bug spray.

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.
