Where do I begin... My girlfriend and I booked this trip at the beginning of July for an arrival on August 20, for what we thought would be great treat at the end of summer. When we were brought to our room we were surprised to find two small beds carefully disguised on cement platforms. Upon calling the front desk... More

Room was fairly standard fare for the price, nice and clean and well maintained and the maids took good care of the place. Layout can be slightly confusing at first with two lobbies but once you get to grips with it everything is fine. Found the lobby staff difficult to deal with at times but most were lovely. The beach... More

My husband & I stayed eight days at this resort. This was our 4th visit to Mexico but the first to this resort and area. We really tried to give this resort the benefit of the doubt because we got such a deal -kind of a "you get what you pay for" mentality; however, there are just some things you... More

When I first arrived here it was very nice , people are very friendly .. Went to the pool , beach was nice but very rocky . I have a few complaints though , there is no night life !! Everyone is just sitting around and it's mostly a resort for couples or older people. I wouldn't suggest to bring... More

The hotel wasn't bad but it wasn't great. I love to get more bang for my buck though. If u have the option($) to choose another hotel w/ more stars & better reviews for $100 or less go for another hotel. The workers at Catalonia Riviera Maya were awesome. Including "sexy Mauricio" (he named himself) they are really a good... More

Dear Weepinbell65, We regret we were able to fulfil your expectations. Our staff went above and beyond to satisfy all your needs. In fact, Food & Beverage department made an exception providing with a bottle of Sparkling wine and orange juice everyday to your room and in every bar (considering that this is not a cocktail that we usually have)....

The Catalonia Riviera Maya all-inclusive is a decent hotel, good value. Did a 5-night package with them in August 2014, and had a great time. Upsides: hotel and rooms are very clean, most of the food is decent, sometimes quite good, staff were mostly friendly and helpful, multiple pools, quiet area that felt safe. Lazaro in the Mercado buffet was... More

Everything went well with the hotel; the food was as you would expect Mexican food to be (different but good), water is safe, staff is friendly and speaks adequate english, and is well worth the value.
