Hello Everyone. You will find this is a good place to relax if you are in a large group of people speaking Spanish, Italian or French. Otherwise you may fill a little unfriendly here. English is definitely not among one of the favourites in Catalonia Maroma plus individuals are not very welcome. We stayed in Catalonia Playa Maroma from April... More

We traveled with another couple who had been to two of the other Catalonia properties in the last two years so we decided to try the Playa Maroma. We were very happy with all that this resort had to offer. We decided not to pay for privileged at the time of booking and we would just see what would happen.... More

Very beautiful surroundings visited by iguanas, tucans, coatis and so on. Amazing beach. Super clean! Nice staff. Super friendly to kids (even to the ones behaving as monsters due to jet lag) But... 1- Rooms need a renovation ASAP! Ants all over being sprayed with chemicals while kids are in the room. 2- If you want anything done, be patient... More

We went for a family spring break and had a wonderful time! The hotel was great, the food was great, and everything was included. We especially liked the water sports. We got to try scuba diving in the pool, and one of our most favorite activities was going out on a hobiecat catamaran. Since I don't have any experience sailing,... More

Just returned home Saturday from a weeks vacation at Catalonia. We traveled with a group of 15 spanning 3 generations. Every single one of us had a fantastic time. We did have the privileged section and some of us had ocean view rooms. I think my room had the best view. We were on the 3rd floor of building 6.... More

My review will be a little long and detailed with the objective of helping future travellers. Just so you know, I am a very picky and detail-oriented person but I do have enough common sense to realize that when I travel...I am NOT at home! Let's get the negative out of the way: the seaweed. The beach is absolutely GORGEOUS!... More

Playa Maroma is reputed to be the finest beach on the Riviera Maya and we believe it. We were impressed by the wide and fine white sandy beach with more long chairs than patrons even though the hotel was fully booked. No need to scramble in the early morning to reserve your chair for the day. Moving within the complex... More

Beautiful beach, average room with decent bed (in privileged section) but sewage smell in bathroom. Out of ten resorts in Mexico this one was one of my least favorites, and for the price definitely the worst. Not enough palapas, in fact very few. Topless sunbathers make it inappropriate for children. Can't imagine only earthing the buffet, by meal 3 there... More
