We stayed at the Catalonia Royal Tulum for 6 days, 5 nites and wish we could have stayed longer. It was nowhere near enough time. My husband and I traveled with our three children ages 21, 19 and 18. They wished there had been more young people there though but we still had a great time. The resort was beautiful,... More

We've been in this hotel for one week, using the all inclusive formula. This hotel is located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, in a wonderful seaside location. It is in typical caribbean stile, with straw roofs, but also mexican materials have been used to build it: much marble, white rocks. The sourrounding is fantastic: you're in a jungle but... More

This was our first all inclusive, and we did NOT like it. There were the activities staff on the loudspeaker by the pool at all times, so not exactly peaceful. If we knew that was going on, we never would have come. This is a resort for people that enjoy cruises, it functions like that, but with worse service. However,... More

My friend and I were very impressed when we arrived at this hotel. We are avid RIU fans and wanted to stay at a RIU in playa del carmen. The beach had started to erode there and we decided to try this hotel, the price was much better also. After staying at (3) different RIU's in DR, Jamaica, and Cancun,... More

The Catalonia Royal Tulum was simply an awesome resort to go to. Sure the front desk staff wasn't always very helpful, and the food wasn't the best, but it was good enough for my purposes. As a teenager travelling with family, I didn't mind the food, and what do I care about front desk? But the bar staff was ALWAYS... More

We weren't sure what to expect because the resort was very reasonably priced, but after the reviews we received from our trusted travel agent, we decided to go for it. We were very pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. We paid the extra $20 for the direct airport transfer and it was definitely worth it. We didn't have to get crammed... More

We heard from our friends and relatives good feedback about the Copacobana (the previous name of this resort). However, our experience in this resort under the new management team was very unpleasant. The room size was nice, but we had a problem with A/C. Warm, humid air instead of cool feshness. Service desk manager was nice enough to walk through... More

Me and 4 girlfriends had planned this week long holiday for almost a year. We were initially booked at the Catalonia Playa Maroma. When we arrived we were informed that they were renovating some rooms so they would need to move us to another hotel (Catalonia Royal Tulum), 30 minutes down the road. We were told it had a higher...

I took 40 of my friends & relatives to the Royal Tulum & we had the most amazing time of our lives. We knew that the hotel was not a 5 star & didn't expect it to be. We went for an affordable all inclusive resort & that's what we received. The group we were with ranged from 5 -... More
