We booked through Barcelo and were offered an upgrade to privileged at the Catalonia Playa Maroma, the resort is well maintained with good facilities, the only bad point is the buffet restaurant which is of pretty poor quality of food, the other speciality restaurants (which you have limited nights in) are of a much better level but you sometimes have...

One of the nights we scheduled personal massages and dinner on the beach. It was magical. We ate at several restaurants... More

This Hotel Get an A+ grade for service , cleanliness, beauty and the best beach we had ever visited and we are well travelled. However the food especially at the ala - cart restaurants is a big disappointment. If you want great food then either pick a different place or better yet go to your mom's house. But if you... More

We absolutely loved Catalonia Maroma - we were on our honeymoon and upon arrival we got upgraded to the honeymoon suite. It had its own private pool and was right on the beach! The service was amazing, we could order room service 24hrs a day! The room also had an outdoor double sun bed on the verandah and then we... More

Our family of three really enjoyed this resort! Catalonia Playa Maroma is a small, extremely walkable all-inclusive resort with some of the most beautiful hotel grounds we have seen. Surrounding wildlife on the grounds was quite neat and it was great to see monkeys and Coatis running around. Here are the three things that we really enjoyed most about the... More

My husband and I spent end of year 2013 vacation in this hotel. The location is quite good. The standard rooms need to be renovated but generally speaking we recommend it. It's better if you book a privileged room. We appreciated the beach party for the new year's eve.

We took our first trip here in April 2014 and loved it! We are already planning a return visit for next year. The beach is amazing, the resort was immaculate and the food for an all-inclusive I felt was above average in the resturants. The buffets well they are buffets - average.
