very good experience would go back.

Resort was very clean and the staff was amazing. check in was a little slow but that was due to volume and thoroughness. explaining all the resort had to offer. We didn't upgrade and didn't miss it. The food was very good at the buffet and the al la carts were outstanding. beach is rocky but lagoon has soft sand and plenty of fish.

"Standard room" you don't get all amenities. ....... very rocKY beach

First thing that happens when you get there is they tell you "you only paid for a standard room" and you need to upgrade to preferred status. That is $15, $25, $30, $35, or $45 a day per person. This gives you preferred seating and some other extras. Even with this preferred status most of the rooms have a horrible view of the next building. This hotel is in a big complex it takes 5 minutes to get there off the main road. Costs $25 to get to the nearest town Playa del Carmen and about $80 to airport by taxi...... even more to Cancun. If your into a nice clear beach, well the water seems clear but there was a lot of rocks... I've been to Cancun and this beach is no where near as nice. Overall the place is nice and relaxing if you do go make sure you visit the Japanese restaurant it is hibachi style.

Nice Resort, Good Food, Good Staff

The resort was one of the nicest I have visited in my many trips to the Maya Riviera. Beautiful landscaping, lots of pools, easy access to beach, pools and food. The food was actually good, buffets, snacks and dinners. Lots of options and easy to get a table - although that could be because I went in September. The staff was extremely friendly and spoke English very well. Tip and you'll see a significant difference in service too.

Great vacation spot--if you're "privileged"

Experience exceeded expectations. We had been to a previous resort further south, near Tulum, which was a step up, but honestly this one was just as good in most respects. Not always as much top-shelf liquor and the restaurants weren't *quite* as good, but still very good food and excellent at times, with beautiful grounds and lots of pools. Great beach too with snorkel opportunities right there. We did the "privileged" suite, mainly just to have a separate room for baby sleeping, but came to find that it had lots of extra perks with that status--had we NOT done that privileged status, I think we would have been rather annoyed at the extra things we would have had to pay for/ask for etc. So I doubt I'd recommend it nearly as highly without the "privileged" status.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

a: The Dolphin Discovery is a short walk away, and you can just go see the dolphins in the water without paying to swim with them (the concierge told us differently). b: If you want to golf, the 9-hole course that is a short walk away is quite lovely, and contrary to what the guys below the lobby area will tell you, it is a full par-36 course (not just a par-3 short course, as they tried to tell me in order to get me to play a more expensive course). Only 9 holes but you can play them as many times as you like!

Catalonia Riviera Maya

The room was average. We asked for non-smoking room, but got a smoking room instead with crack tiles, stained mirror, and smoke stained table stand. We were a little disappointed, but the room was always kept super clean. Staff members were super nice, extremely hard working, and energetic. Night life was amazing! Overall, I had a pleasant and relaxing experience and enjoyed the pool, beach, and food. I would definitely go back.

Not Good!!

We're a family of 4 ( 2 Adults and 2 Children) our trip was on 7-15-2014 to 7-22-2014, this trip was at the last minute also , also our 5th time in the Riviera Maya, we have tried other resorts , and they have been excellent, but Catalonia Riviera Maya, was the worst from the check in, Barbara at the front desk was very impolite, she talked to guests in a bad way, she was disrespectful to a Mexican lady that was staying at the resort like a guest, no matter if Mexican or not. The Beach was very rocky, if you're a beach person, don't go to this Resort, the food was ok. Beware if you're staying in the first floor, there is SO MUCH NOISE, any time. Be carefull with the Timeshare people, they said that's a Vacation Club, but it's not: it's a Timeshare!!! They offer you a thousand of things, but, they're liars. I'm trying to advise you about it. The Riviera Maya has a lot good Resorts for the same price. The beach bar has better drinks! They show it to me like its a 4 star, it's not!! I give this hotel 2 and a half stars. I hope this review helps other people to save money and to stay in another resort. Thank you!

Relaxing Stay

Really like the resort. Very relaxing. Would have like more of a typical beach to stay at. This one was sloped and rocky which made it tough to enjoy. Other then that nice place to stay. Probably would pick another place to vacation to next time. 1 hour drive from Cancun so be prepared.

Great trip for family with young kids

I stayed in the privileged suite with my wife and 17 month old son. The room was perfect for us because we had a separate living room and bedroom (perfect for naps). Our son loved the beach, kids' pools, and food (every restaurant offered a kids menu). Staff was great with us! The only recommendations would be to get the privilaged rooms, get to the restaurants right at 6, and bring water shoes (2 of the 3 beaches were rocky). Everything was great! We would definitely go back again
