Great friendcation!

Great price, great location, great time! Hotel is located with a nice reef just offshore, marine life includes: eels, toad fish, puffers, lots of parrot fish, angel fish, sea snails, sea cucumbers, sea snakes, and barracuda. No need for snorkeling excursions. Hotel provides many activities throughout the day from archery, bike tours, volleyball, ping pong, water polo,etc. Food was decent at buffets, somewhat repetitive, but good enough. There are four a la carte restaurants included, number of visits is dependent on length of stay (we had four for a six night stay). The food there is great. There is also a snack bar/grill during the day by the pool. There is also a crepe bar and tapas bar that are included. We did not choose to upgrade to "privilege" level as we did not spend much time in room, and didn't think we missed out on anything. The hotel is located in puerto aventures which is a gated community that includes residential and hotels along with a marina that has shops and restaurants. That area is 10-15 minute walk and is very safe. The marina has an area to swim with dolphins and manatees. Did not participate, so can not comment on prices, but did view them one evening. All in all great vacation and great value.

STAY AWAY!!!

Me and my family of 8 stayed here. First upon arrival, the room that we booked and was guaranteed was not available. They proceeded to place me, my husband, and 2 children in a room with one bed. First the room was hotter on the inside than it was outside and the floor was wet due to so much humidity, we tried to turn on the ceiling fan and it shook so much it was about to fall off the wall. I called and complained 2x, 30 mintues apart from each other, and was told to just wait in the room. When I finally went to the front desk I was greeted by rude staff that told me to go back and wait in the room. Once someone finally showed up they procededed to "attempt and fix all the issues in the room as the popcorn on the ceiling was falling all over our bed and belongings. Again I went to the front desk and demanded a new room. They finally placed me in a room with 2 beds. The next morning I was called to be told that we needed to be out of the room by 11 due to that room being needed by other guests and that we could just leave all of our things at the front desk until our new room was available. At this point we were extremely upset, but they continued to show no sympathy and we were told that "its not their job to put theirself in our situation" and "no manager was availble to speak to us" and that there was nothing more they could do. While at the pool having a drink to calm down I overheard them introducing the general manager and ran him down with our complaints, he simply handed our situation off to someone else. To cut this horrible story short we were finally given a room but no sympathy from the staff, no apologies or reimbursements offered. Food sucked, they offer their special resaurants but they reach capacity at like 5pm and take no more reservations so you are forced to eat at the nasty buffet. STAY AWAY KEEP SEARCHING FOR BETTER!!!! WOULDNT STAY HERE IF THEY OFFERED FREE ROOMS!!!!

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.
