I don't usually write reviews, hence why this is so late but having read so many negative reviews I felt I had to this time. We went to The Catalonia for our honeymoon. It was amazing, yes the beach is rocky but as others have said take water shoes if your that worried. We had never been to Mexico before... More

We visited Catalonia for four nights in October 2014. I was a bit skeptical at first because of so many mixed reviews, however, I was so impressed with this resort that I'm happy I ignored the bad reviews. Check-in was fairy quick since we were distracted by the free cocktails. The staff was amazing! They were all extremely friendly and... More

Feb. 18th to 28th, 2015 This is the 4th year for my stay at the Catalonia. Nice to see some upgrades since last year but do hope they get the elevators fixed before our trip back next year. Amazing staff from the front desk, to the grounds keepers, to the plumbers and especially the servers in the El Marcado (smaller... More

Pretty average inclusive resort experience. The beaches however were sub-par. Rocky and hard to get into. Lots of washed up coral particles, lots of gunk built up on the beach and and floating in the Cove. The seaweed attracted flies and was just not inviting.

no problem checking in at reception...fast and efficient...we even upgraded and they accommodated with a beautiful room directly on the ocean! Staff were respectful, and pleasant. When we asked for water or beer it was delivered quickly.... the room was sparkling clean and the bed was very comfortable...the shower was not great but they replaced the nozzle and it worked...

My girlfriend and I where at this resort from feb 18-25 and had such a wonderful time. The food was great and the service was more then what you could ask for. I read lots of reviews before I left and prepared my self. A frequent complaint was how the beach was small and really rocky. We bought $20 water... More

We stayed here the last week of Feb 2015 in a one bedroom family suite. Overall we had a good time. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the resort is clean and well kept. Having said that I would not go back, but only because I don't like Puerto Adventuras one bit. We booked this trip quickly a week... More

Room - My husband upgraded to the honeymoon suite for our honeymoon, the extra money was well worth it. The honeymoon suites were in the newer buildings, they had a plunge pool/tub on the balcony but the rooms upstairs could see into it so no privacy, it had a nice walk in shower and comfy bed. With our upgrade we... More
