Actions speak louder than words

The wife and I have been fortunate to take at least 2 "beach vacation" type trips each of the last five years, and have stayed in a variety of all inclusive resorts during our travels. The CRT is a smaller, well maintained resort on one of the best beaches (if not the best beach) in the entire Riviera Maya area. Great staff, good food, very laid back relaxing place. Don't write many reviews, but after having visited CRT in May of 2009, we were impressed enough to return again in December - the first time we have ever traveled to the same resort twice. High rollers and drama queens need not apply; but hard working, down to earth travelers with realistic expectations looking for a really good bang for their buck will find this place hard to beat.

Great hotel

Staff works very hard to make your stay pleasant. Beach and water is beatiful and 1/2 mile stretch to walk along the beach. Go to Akumal beach and snorkel with the turtles.

Beautiful Hotel

Hotel & location were beautiful. The food was good. Our only complaint was the bartenders at the beach during the day had bad additudes. But Victor, who was there at night was the best!

Go to Xel-ha! You can get there by taxi for $21 (they only charged us $18 on the way home). It is an amazing place!

CRT

This was our third stay with Catalonia Hotels in Mexico and first @ CRT. We selected this hotel to enjoy the beach and its laid back night life (quiet)! Stayed on property except for a day trip into Playa. No need to leave and will return next year. One thought on evening dining, have a buffet an option and this would help cut down on wait time for dinner but food was worth waiting for. Also, experienced the hardest bed in my lifetime but they moved us to another room with soft pillow top. The mangrove and cenotes made you feel like you were in the jungle and we did not experience any bugs!

Book your transfer @ pickup area - in years past a private round trip was $280.00 and we were traveling with three other people in our group so a total of 5 and we had a nice clean van all to ourselves for $230.00 roundtrip
