My husband and I stayed at the Catalonia Royal Tulum (CRT) in early July. We were originally suppose to be at the Catalonia Playa Maroma but when we arrived they asked us if we would be willing to be moved to CRT an adults only resort. We normally travel with our kids so we never thought of staying at an... More

My wife & I just got back from our 10th trip to CRT. We were able to book the earliest flight out so we arrived in Cancun by 10am. Since it’s the busy season the Custom line was a bit long. It took us just over 30 minutes to clear customs and get out to our transfer. We have been... More

Everything and more of what you have already read! We were not disappointed by one thing at this magnificent destination! It is more beautiful than the pictures, staff were amazing, room was perfect, food was delicious, tons of choices, great drinks... but... then, the animals!!!!! Heaven!!!!! We spent a lot of time feeding, although, of course, it is not encouraged,... More

The beach here is the gem. This made our holiday. Nice quiet resort for relaxation purposes. Food generally good, Mexican restaurant was our favourite, Italian not good. Premium branded drinks are available which is great. Service in themed restaurants was very good but for breakfast in buffet was very hit or miss. Some mornings we needed to help ourselves to...

Background: We have been to many AI in the Riviera Maya, Secrets, Excellence, Grand Sirenis, Now Sapphire, just to name a few and this is our 4th visit to a Catalonia’s in the Riviera Maya. We have been to all three Catalonias. The Catalonia Tulum was probably the prettiest of all (overall) and adults only, but not our favorite. The... More

So.... my mom and I and a few friends of ours use to travel to this hotel back in 2003-2005 when it was called the Copacabana Beach resort. We have always wanted to go back to this resort because we fell so inlove with it. Inbetween 2005 and now we have stayed at the other two Catalonias. We decided this... More

Check-in was nice and swift, room was clean with plenty of space. The staff were great the entire stay. We were able to look at other rooms and there's hardly any differences in most of them. Wish they put more beers in the mini-fridge. Tired and hungry, we go to Tapas for dinner. It was okay because we were still... More

First off, I would recommend booking your travel to and from the hotel through Super Shuttle. The hotel is about an hour from the Cancun Airport. I prepaid for the round trip transportation and they had a man with a sign waiting out front of the airport. I waited about 10 minutes before they loaded me on a van and... More

This was a beautiful hotel nestled neatly in a typical jungle forest of the Yucatan peninsula. The hotel and especially the staff exceeded our expectations. We rented a car from the Cancun Airport and we strongly recommend that. Word of warning, make sure you can drive stick shift vehicle, since most of the cars there will NOT be automatic. The... More

Wow! What a gorgeous hotel and location. My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon here for an 8 day stay and absolutely loved every second. The resort is located about 1 hour and 20 min away from Cancun airport. The ride was enjoyable and went by quickly. The lobby is large, open air and beautifully decorated. The check in staff... More
