Nice vacation would definitely recommend to friends

My family had a great vacation at Catalonia RM. The entertainment staff made us feel that we were part of their big happy family. We had a fantastic time and the entertainment staff played a big part in that. We will be going back again.

This was our first time in Mexico and last time staying at Catolina Resort. Do not expect to check in before 3pm. The swimming pool and beach area is beautiful although there was no jacuzzi which really sucked. Pool closes at 7pm each night which also sucked! Rooms are “okay” they could be updated. The bed mattress need to be replaced they felt sunk in. The bathroom lighting is horrible and our sink was cold water and was backed up. Food was horrible at the buffets including the breakfast! Was very disappointed because they’re is nothing else near around to eat. Dinner was over a hour to be seated every single night even if you went early And that food was also “okay”. Massage was great but spa jacuzzi was cold. The Resort was also far away from activities. Book in Cancun! It is more beautiful in that area with more options of things to do. Also do not book if you wants adults only. They’re were a lot of kids running around.

Be cautious of rocks under the water. You need water shoes.

This resort is by far one of the nicest we've stayed at. Awesome staff in all areas! Small enough to get around easily. Easy access into the water at the beach too! Definately will be back!!

We had a great time at the resort and it was very fun.

The food, the setting, the entertainment, it's just perfect. We stayed there for 6 days and wish we could have stayed much longer. We are definitely coming back. You are literally less than a 2 minute walk to the private beach. The pools are great. Food is wonderful. The entertainment staff is exceptional, they are there all day and night! Overall, everyone is extremely nice and welcoming. We miss being there already!! What's amazing is that the place looks exactly like the pictures on the website, it literally is paradise.

A lot of discrimination among quests European and the others. Service terrible. Bartenders are not polite at all. NO decent espresso coffee. Bars far away from beach. Restaurants crowded.

We just left our hotel and alredy miss me a lot!!! We had great time in Catalonia resort and next year see you definitely again. Thanks to Rafael ( tequilaBar), Marco - Antonio, Cancedonio ( animations), Carlos ( Expedia), Gustavo... The beach was super nice,clean and clear. Thank you so much guys and recommend everybody to try little bit of this "heaven "*****

Was one of my best vacation the service was great the rooms were clean and i loved the beach area it is so clean and only the reaort guess had the right to stay there

Great staff and great resort. I would love to come back here

It was a great hotel and service was great. I just think it would of been even more better if they had more stuff going on around the pool area because I've noticed after 5pm there was no music playing.

All inclusive food was not very good... Service was poor at most restaurants! We almost had our meal finished before we would receive our drinks.

Wonderful I like the secluded beach diferent places to eat bunch of food drinks are ok we eat at 3 a la carte restaurant all of them good no reservations required at the end so pleased to choose this hotel...

Hotel es muy limpio muy cómodo comida excelente. Bebidas muy buenas personal del hotel muy amable.

Beautiful views, friendly staff, clean, and very nice! Great service

Good place to get away! Comfy beds and good restaurants on site.

We had a FANTASTIC time at Catalonia Riveria Maya! Upon arriving, we got there before check in time and they let us enjoy all the amenities and leave our bags until our room was ready. They also upgraded us to "Privileged" because we booked through Orbitz, so instead of having 1 A la Carte meal a day, we had this for any and all meals...which included the Crepery, BLoved, (which was the BEST with a fantastic view), and more. The staff was incredible (mainly staff at the Chill Out Bar) and never left us empty handed without a drink. Before we were finished with one drink, they had another ready to go. They came by our room in the evenings after they had cleaned earlier in the day with refreshed bottled water if needed. There is plenty to do on the resort & it is all included at no extra charge. We checked out the bikes several mornings and road around to the harbor and down the streets. It is an extremely safe neighborhood that has some great vacation property. The roads had a separate bike lane and are not like what you hear on typical Mexico...it was extremely safe. The resort also has a mini catamaran you can reserve for a 30 min time slot and they take you out in the ocean and it was a blast! Just be sure you do this early in the AM to reserve your time slot - only 2 people can go at a time. They also have shows in the evening...opted for this one night but found this a bit cheesy, but when you are seeing Aladdin in Mexico, you can't have too high of expectation

So happy. Everything from the staff to the meals exceeded our expectations. Great place for a family. Will visit again.

Had a good time, beach bar staff were great!! Food was OK, better in the restaurants than the buffets, custom made omelets were very good. Japanese restaurant was excellent and fun too!

Dear Guest, We are sorry our resort was not what you were looking for, we appreciate your honest comments, however, is important to us to mention that most hotels check-in time is after 3 pm, our hotel is located within a complex walking distance from restaurants, golf course, and other activities. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again next time you visit Mexico.
