Fantastic Value & Great First Visit

This was our first Mexican visit and our neighbors recommended we check out Cheap Caribbean to make it happen. Super easy to plan, exactly as advertised, and we were pleasantly surprised how nice the entire resort was. Restaraunts were easily able to accommodate everyone at meal times and the service was PHENOMENAL. Nice clean facilities and amenities in room were what we expected. Tips / pointers are: 1. Bring PLENTY of sunscreen. We went through 2 full bottles (1 for my wife and 1 for me) in 7 days. It's just REALLY intense sunshine and it was easy to see who DIDN'T apply regularly. 2. Pay the $ on the front end and set up your transportation to and from the airport. We did that (about $80 for each of us, round trip) and it was simple. I think we used AMSTAR. 3. We are fairly seasoned and cnfident travelera and we enjoy avoiding the "tour bus crowds" so we didnt sign up for any planned excursions. Instead, we did research on front end and did a couple of self guided day trips using the COLLECTIVOS that ran up and down the roads. Way cheaper than taxis and got the local feel too. 4. This resort has a few Cenotes close (Google it) and they are within easy Collectivo reach. (A mile or two.) For about $15, both of us were able to snorkel and enjoy the clear water and fish. Go early, like 9 am when they open, because they get crowded by noon or so. (DEFINITELY CHECK THESE OUT AND PLAN ON THEM THOUGH.) 5. Only low mark was for beach / pool and that was just because we had windy days like 5 of 7 days we were there so beach was "red flag" condition and lots of seaweed (like LOTS) washed in. Resort fought the good fight against it, but seaweed and wind just made beaching a place to "watch waves and get sand blown all over the place". Probably a seasonal issue, but if that's the case maybe be prepared for that when you book. Overall the good things WAAAYYYY outnumbered the beach conditions and we were very happy with our trip. Would definitely use Cheap Caribbean again and go back to this resort. FANTASTIC TRIP.

Worth the trip

While the cab ride from the airport was an hour, it was well worth it. The food was great, the staff was incredible, and the accommodations were wonderful. We'd definitely return! I'd recommend spending a few extra dollars and get the privileged package - it gave access to the best restaurant in the whole place.

Great Vacation

Overall my Fiance and I were very impressed with the resort and I would highly recommend it to anyone heading to that area of the world. That said here's a few (minor) criticisms... First, post better pictures of each room, we we're both expecting a 4 post bed in the Romance room, turned out to be a generic bed and headboard. Second, improve the room service menu, the after hours menu wasn't terrible, but the food was. We were up late and ordered a sandwich and hot dog that were both horrendous. Our standards for drunk food aren't that high, but even in our drunken stupor we couldn't choke it down. Along with that, stock the fridge with a little bit of booze, the nearest bar was a bit of a walk and not everyone is a Corona fan. Finally, this is the only all inclusive I've stayed at where you couldn't order drinks from room service, this, combined with a lack of a minibar, was a bit inconvenient. All that said, we both loved the resort, this is just friendly criticism on a few things that could be easily improved.

Honeymoon in paradise

We had a great honeymoon at the Royal Catalonia!! The beach was breathtaking, the pool large and the restaurants were amazing! The staff was very friendly and all-in-all it was an amazing vacation! My only one minor compliant is service could sometimes be a bit slow in the restaurants, but I also live in NYC so I'm used to things being very quick. This resort is also amazing because it's tucked away from the busy-ness of Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, and also a relatively short taxi to Tulum and the cenotes there. It's definitely not a place to go if you want to party nonstop, as the crowd is more subdued and just trying to relax, which is what we wanted! I could definitely see myself coming back.

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.
