Great value.

My wife and I stayed at CRT for a short four night vacation. It is only a 2.5 hour flight from Atlanta, so we find ourselves going to Riviera Maya at least once a year. The beach was great, and the food was good. There is one main pool, but that was fine - it was not too crowded. The resort requires a good amount of walking to get from your room to the beach, but the walk is nice because it is mostly shaded and in nature. As others have noted, the resort definitely caters to Italians - but unless you mind the young Italian honeymooners that sunbathe topless, it's not really an issue. The food was nice, but not spectacular. We have stayed at other resorts that cost double the price, but I would not say that we enjoyed them twice as much as CRT. If you are looking for something very fancy, this is not the place. But for a good time on the beach in a relaxed environment, CRT fits the bill and is a great value. Finally, given the distance from the airport, we got a private car to take us both ways. It definitely was worth the money because the trip would be very long in a bus or van that stops at other resorts along the way (from previous experience).

Great Property, Great Beach! Good Food and Drink... I could do without the sales pitch to "buy in" to their "club"... Once you get over that hump, its a great place, and I hope to go back!

Perfect Relaxation

Royal Catalonia Tulum is a great place to get away from it all. The resort is quiet, the beach is very nice, the staff is excellent and the food is better than average for an All-Inclusive. We were visiting for a Wedding and enjoyed ourselves very much. The only shortcomings of the resort - which are not big issues - include a strict beach towel rule and sub-par "room service" food. We did have an issue with our room phone that was not resolved all week, but were offered an alternate room - so can't complain as there was an option to resolve our issue. The value is huge for US travellers looking for a very relaxed environment with a great beach and pool.

Beautiful, Relaxing Stay

I have been to the Catalonia Royal Tulum twice within the year--each time the staff has been very friendly and the room and amenities have been great. The one area of improvement I would recommend would be to improve the flavor of the food--sometimes the desserts were not very sweet. Otherwise, it was a wonderful vacation.

Great Place, Gorgeous Beach!

We love the Catalonia Royal Tulum--the property and staff are so welcoming. The location is absolutely beautiful--the walkway with overhanging trees, the animals, the beach with the clear turquoise water--all very beautiful. The one thing that could have been better were the desserts--not as sweet as we're used to in the US. Otherwise--great!

Just returned oct 16

This was our third time at this resort, and we'll be back again. It is a long drive from cancun (about 90 mins) well worth it when you get there. It is a smaller resort, which we prefer, and it's adults only. The staff are very friendly and can't help you enough. The food was excellent, the beach is beautiful and you can walk a long way at either side. The staff put on fun pool activities. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a bit busier this time than the last two times before that we went, which were in September. It did get a bit loud at the pool and hard to find a lounge, but we are beach people anyway, so it was quieter there, but the lounges aren't as comfortable as the pool ones. There was a lot of seaweed blown in by the sea, but it didn't bother us too much, it just makes a lot of work for the staff cleaning it up. We took the bus to akumel and snorkel led with the turtles, this is the third time doing this and it's amazing. We take our own snorkeling equipment. We went to playa del Carmen for the day, but I don't think I would do it again, we have been there four times and we have a hard time with the pressure to buy, we also went to kinn wa, which is near peurto Morelos, it's a very bumpy road it, but we rode the ATV s in the jungle, and zip lined and dropped into a cenote, and zipped lined over land. It is a totally natural place and we loved swimming in the cool cenotes. We had a hamburger lunch and they took a DVD of all our activated which we bought. George was our tour guide and he was great. We were sad leaving the resort and are looking forward to coming back again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

From our hotel we can easily walk to the highway to get the collectivo bus. It's $3 each way and goes from tulum to cancun and they let you off pretty well wherever you are going along the highway.
