“CRT, our opinion, mostly +”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

After extensive research for a place that would fit our budget, timeline, and interests, we settled on the CRT and here is our opinion. 4 adults, in our 50s, we were looking for relaxation and a beautiful beach and we found them, at the CRT.
It is a small resort compared to some others, very clean, great staff (always working and many times without the tools that would have made jobs easier, please tip) smiling and never intrusive.
Food to us was more than satisfactory, food is very individual, some people will be happy some won't. However plenty of choices. we all agreed that their fish fillet, kebobs, were the best and that the steaks kind of tough, regardless of how they were cooked or where. Loved the mushroom risotto at the Italian restaurant. we also all agreed that (in our opinion) desserts were the one big flaw in the dining experience , fresh fruit a better option.
Room was standard and perfectly fine, one room was very humid, magazines curled up and pills disintegrated...service and showers great. we found ourselves walking quite a bit, either way, regardless where you are, building 3+4, in the middle, 1+2 closest to lobby, 5+6 to the pool and beach...but you are going to walk, which is a good thing since you will be eating a lot (a warning...to us food was salty and we could see the cooks at the grills sprinkling salt liberally and yes, it made it tasty but hands and feet swelled. maybe because we are old?)
beach was great but concentrated and the towel game is ridiculous, however eventually you'll find a spot if not a palapa...you can snorkel off the beach and it will be a hit/miss some days not much, other days stingrays, plenty of colorful fish and scuttlefish and eel. plenty of turtles nest on the beach, it takes about 2 months for eggs to hatch, and we met this lady who retired from usa to mx and now volunteers to check on the nest 2-3x/week, collects baby turtles as they become ready and the CRT releases them on wed and Fridays at 8:30 at the beach.
Bars: we are not drinkers, so we found them to be just fine...
Activities... sorry, not much there at all, darts, bingo, dance lessons, aquagym, bocce are the posted activities, but there isn't much interest or attempts to get the guest involved. this was one downside for us, after a couple of days it can get boring.....
now, for full disclosure sake, let's talk about the guests at the CRT. Like others have mentioned before, The CRT is a Spanish owned resort that does have quite a bit of European guest, their Euro $ making this resort a great value. The CRT is also contracted with an Italian tour company, Veraclub, that yes, it is there mostly for Italian guests, however all are welcomed to join in their activities. they announce each activity 3 x, before they start, 1st call, 2nd call, 3rd call, in 3 languages, English, Spanish and Italian each time. as far as rudeness of guest, Italians and non, during the first half of our stay it was mostly young couples on honeymoon, the second half more of a mix, age wise and also, bisex...we really didn't come across any open rudeness from anyone, more rather differences in culture and languages...did you know that tipping is not customary in many countries? beside, if you put together a bunch of young people having fun at the beach, do you really expect them to be quiet?
We enjoyed the CRT very much, with the understanding that it is a relaxing (boring?) resort, 15 minutes away from any action in Playa del Carmen if a gorgeous beach is enough for you (it is for me). would we recommend it? yes with full disclosure..... and more than worth the value
Gabby

Room Tip: no ocean views, ultimately I don't think any room or building is better than an other

i have previously stayed at the catalonia royal bavaro in the dominican and loved it so i decided to try CRT in mexico this year

We arrived on 17th september for 2 weeks and i had emailed twice prior to arrival to request a top or middle floor, we were checked in into a ground floor room with 2 beds instead of a kingsize so i was immediately disappointed, they wanted us to upgrade to privileged for an extra $20 pp per night which we declined so we were asked to come back after breakfast the next day and they would sort out a different room, next morning they said there was still nothing available and to come back next day after breakfast, next day the same happened, surely they know if rooms are vacant or folk are checking out? i didnt want to live out of a suitcase whilst waiting to see each day if we could be moved to a different room!! so we just unpacked and had to share a smaller bed for 2 weeks.

food: the snack bar and the lunch buffet were ok,maybe there should be some kind of sign to say please wait to be seated and wait your turn as most of the arrogant rude italians walk in front of you and ignore you if you protest!! the food was good and well presented but the service differed vastly, some nights it was excellent and sometimes dire, if there were a few large groups dining at the same time as you then they were given priority, the worst service was in the steak house which is a shame cos the food was delicious, the ribs were fantastic, the asian was wonderful too but again the service varied, the big tall waiter in there was useless, he just wandered around aimlessly with 1 plate or glass or stood looking at the food ready to give out as if he didnt have a clue!! tapas bar was lovely with a great ambience and fantastic cocktails, we used to go in there just for drinks, the chocolate martini and cadilac martini were great, food was ok, didnt like the oxtail it was all fat and no meat, the chocolate pot was delicious though :-) the mexican was tasty but unfortunately i had to send back the prawn tacos one evening as they were stone cold in the middle, they oviously pre cook then chill them and reheat as required, they were changed no problem and very courteous staff, the italian was great too as was the breakfast buffet although if you did get there after 9.30 there was sometimes no bacon left so they put beef stew or mince which i found very strange!! most of the waiting staff work really hard and prehaps the hotel should have more staff at busier times especially at night as you were lucky to see 2-3 for each full restaurant!! be prepared to wait at least 1 hour if you go for evening meal after 8pm.
drinks were ok: the spirits were definately watered down at the pool bar compared to tapas or lobby! the wine was very good although i would have prefered a larger measure poured at meals, they tend to only quater fill your glass but fill water to the brim, sometimes waiting for them to refill your glass took forever especially if a few large groups were also dining, we liked gasper down at the pool bar in the evening, he was a great barman and very friendly, also cosuela who was the drinks waitress at the lobby bar, she was very good and a lovely girl, also carlos in the tapas bar, he made amazing cocktails, the lobby bar in the evening can get very loud later on when there are young guest coming in and out of the disco situated right above leaving the door open with clubbing music blaring out and shouting, it could prehaps do with a reconfiguration? a big bar stuck in a small corner of a lovely lobby area with a few tables dotted around it, it wasnt really inspiring to want to sit there, daytime drinks: the girls who serve on the beach are lovely and very busy,how do they remember who wants what and where you are when you see them coming out with theirs trays laden, its amazing, again service was slow but with so many bodies squashed into a small space with only 1 person serving its no wonder, they need more staff on the beach, i didnt like going to the pool bar through the day as it took forever to be served, 1 particular barman wouldnt even look you in the face,he just asked what you wanted with eyes cast down or whilst joking around with other staff, thats if he would serve you at all even after everyone else and more who had came to the bar after you!! it was extremely annoying and frustrating!!
the room was ok, nice big shower and maid service excellent, very very clean, the beds were comfortable, just a shame our request went unheeded, i didnt like the ground floor, it was dark and gloomy and smelt musty, there was a scorpion ran across the floor one night when i moved my shoe so i was reluctant to get up for the loo throughout the night and as we had to share one ot the smaller beds i didnt have access to the light switch or the bedside table, it must have sneaked in at turndown service?the aircon was great. cool and powerful, the mini bar only ever had 1 packet of nuts in it for 2 people, that was it for the snacks, nothing else!!

beach and pool were beautiful but too small and crowded for the amount of people there, some people reserved sunbeds at both beach and pool and never occupied them, you were hemmed in on the beach and had very little privacy, i didnt agree with 2 guests taking 5 beds between them so they could have 1 seat in sun and 1 in shade and 1 to put bags on as the beach was small enough without that happening, quite a few of the loungers on the beach were ripped but still left to use and although their were sometimes loungers by the pool there were no cushions on the rattan type ones as people had removed then to put on the ones at the beach which didnt need them, again also quite annoying!!
the grounds were kept immaculate considering some of the guests would just leave half full glasses on the walls or anywhere else they decided to just dump them as they couldnt be bothered to carry them back to the bar or their rooms!!
on our 2nd last night we decided to have a game of pool and i snagged my dress on a nail sticking out from the table which ripped a hole in the fabric, i went and reported this to reception who immediately got maintenence out to fix it, i had to report next day to the concierge who then got me to write a letter explaining what had happened and how much it cost, they then gave me a $25 voucher to spend in the hotel shop which was very kind of them to do so,

the hotel does try its best to be as efficient as possible and make your stay wonderful but i think they could do with more waiting staff and signs up for people to wait their turn and to be seated!
and to cater more to english speaking guests aswell as the italians who seem to get better service all the time!

overall i enjoyed the holiday but i much preferred the catalonia royal bavaro at the dominican and dont think i would come back here again

ps a few trips booked:
captain hook surf and turf cruise was an utter disgrace and i shall be contacting thompson to let them know and ask for a refund, see different review for this!! dont waste £71.50 per person!!

chichen itza booked through cancun adventures on the otherhand was great, proffesional and efficient from start to finish, swam in il kil cenote then toured around chithen itza, the english speaking guide was brilliant, you could imagine what it must have been like living there many years ago, the only thing that spoilt that was the vendors hassling you inside the grounds to but their tat, they should be outside, well recommended trip out if you like history.

My husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at the Catalonia Royal Tulum the third week of September, 2013. Nearly everything about this resort was perfect for us.

Overall Resort Environment & Grounds: Adult only (no unsupervised dirty little fingers fondling the food at the buffet). Well-maintained ‘jungle’ grounds with natural cenotes and mangroves. Amazing beach. Small resort (which we prefer), so you don’t spend half your vacation getting from ‘point A’ to ‘point B.’ There are a lot of coatis running around, with a few iguanas scattered about. I just wish people would not feed the animals, as it is not only dangerous to people, but the animals lose their ability to forage for food and feed themselves. So enjoy looking at all of the animals wandering the grounds, but please do not feed them!

Staff: Outstanding service! We were greeted with a welcoming smile at check-in. We arrived before check-in time so our room was not ready (which we were prepared for). So we headed to the lunch buffet for some food and drink. There we were greeted by the sweetest young man, David, whose service was exemplary! He introduced himself, got our names, and from that point on David was our waiter at every breakfast and lunch. He really gave us our first impression of the resort, and it couldn’t have been better. We also received wonderful wait service by Geny at the beach. Relaxing on a beach chair with Geny bringing us cold drinks—ahhh, bliss! I also want to mention Julie in Guest Services—she was so helpful and sweet as well. I would have to say that we received excellent service everywhere we went at the Catalonia Royal Tulum. Even the a-la-carte restaurants had great service (which gave us a pleasant surprise, as it has been our experience that the a-la-carte restaurants are always slow at all-inclusive resorts). Also, the young ladies at the dive shop (Suzie, Natalie and Lola) were all so very sweet and personable. We didn’t get to go on a dive trip with them this year, but we will definitely dive with them next year!

Rooms: The rooms were spacious and very clean, and the fridge was cold and well-stocked. The air-conditioning worked and the flat-screen television was nice to have (although we didn’t spend much time watching TV!). The shower was large and we always had hot water. The king-size bed was very comfortable. The rooms must be well-insulated, too, because it was very quiet. The resort was 95% full (very odd for September), but the room was so quiet it felt like we were the only people in the entire building.

Food: I am so puzzled by some of the reviews saying the food was bad. I mean, I am REALLY puzzled. Breakfast was wonderful. The lunch was a bit different each day, and it was all good. All of the a-la-cartes were good, my personal favorite being the Mexican. The only one we did not eat at was the tapas restaurant, but tapas is just not our ‘thing.’ The only food that was just mediocre was the dinner buffet. We ate at the buffet one night, and we thought it was acceptable, but nothing to brag about.

Other Guests: Though probably half of the guests at the resort were Italian, I never felt ‘snubbed’ by the staff in any way. I really didn’t see that any single group was ‘catered to’ more than another. Sure, the Vera Club is on the premises specifically for the Italian guests, but they did their thing; we did ours. No biggie. The only recommendation I can make to this resort is to do something about the towel game, which was being played full-force. I believe people are going down to the beach before going to sleep at night to reserve their chairs for the next day. We met some people who went down to the beach earlier and earlier each day trying to get a chair under a palapa, and even at 6 a.m. there were no palapas available at the beach. That is ridiculous. If the resort wants to end this silly game people play, they need to make a ‘no reserving policy’ and enforce it by pulling all towels off the chairs at 7 a.m. each morning. We even saw one Italian couple who had palapas reserved at both the pool AND the beach! That being said, though, there is still a good bit of shade under all of the palm trees. So even without a palapa, and with the resort being 95% full, we were still able to find a shady spot to park ourselves for a few hours each day.

There really was so much to love about this resort. We loved the jungle-nature environment. The beach was spectacular. The service from the staff was outstanding. The food and drinks were all good. Even the relatively small size of the resort is perfect. And it is adult-only. We are already planning our trip to go back next year.

We're at the Catalonia Royal Tulum now. It's raining so we're sitting on our balcony catching up on emails. The resort is nice enough but a long way from being great. We've been to Mexico resorts several times and this one is at the low end of the scale. It feels very cramped and crowded. Too many people in too little space. And there is nowhere to go to have silence. We're sitting on our balcony looking at the foliage..... listening to jazz music that's piped *everywhere *!! Huge minus. What kind of management mind thinks people want to listen to canned jazz music.... or ANY music.... while walking along a walkway and looking at the surrounding foliage?? Very annoying! If anyone from the resort is reading this and wants a quick and easy way to improve things, simply shut the ridiculous music OFF! The food is ok. The beach is quite small and very crowded. You can do better than this place in Mexico. Keep looking.

We stayed at CRT from September 25th to October 2nd. This was our second trip to CRT. The weather was perfect and the hotel was great!

There were a few things we observed that I want to share.

The food was better this trip than when we visited in 2010.

The food is GOOD. It's not great but its close. It's an all inclusive meal plan and not gourmet. The presentation was very nice at all of the restaurants! We ate the buffet breakfast and there are SO many options!! We also had breakfast room service and it was fine. It took about 15 minutes so we were pleased. For lunch we snacked on pizza, or had the poolside buffet. IF YOU ASK THE HOSTESS AT THE BUFFET FOR A PLASTIC PLATE, YOU CAN MAKE A PLATE TO EAT AT THE BEACH!! I did this to get chips and guac for an afternoon snack. We never ordered a burger or chicken sandwich at the pizza place but they looked good.

For dinner we tried all of the restaurants except the new Thai restaurant. We LOVE Tapas!! Everything was good!! Our favorites were the Pork Tenderloin and the Fried Sea! This place is romantic and has the best drinks! They have a special menu of drinks that the other bars do not offer!! Try the key lime martini!! Oh and the chocolate soufflé and ice cream was yummy!! Carlos, at Tapas, was our favorite waiter of the week. The steakhouse and the mexican restaurants were good and much improved! My husband had the buffet dinner one evening and RAVED about the grouper.

The FOOD always seems to get bad reviews but you have to be realistic! Its not fabulous but its good!!

Did you know you can go to any restaurant and order drinks and appetizers, move to another for dinner and then go have desert somewhere else? I recommend starting with drinks at TAPAS and go about your culinary experience!

We were offered an upgrade room and package but declined. No hard sell! The rooms are the same minus a few fancier decorations. We stayed in building 4 and loved it!

We went to every show and enjoyed them!! The comedy show was hilarious!! We also enjoyed the live music in the lobby bar each night!

The beach is beautiful!! It's safe to walk the mile stretch from tip to tip of the beach. We shopped at the local souvenir shop to the South. We also hung out at the La Playa beach club. They have live music a few days a week so check it out!!

We snorkeled in front of the CRT beach. The farther you go the better the coral is and the more fish you see. We saw several grey rays, a spotted ray,
a huge trigger fish and a large barracuda. Lots of other fish of all sizes and colors!!

There are many complaints about the Italians. I didn't see any rude behavior or notice them being any louder than the rest of the guests. They may not move out of your way on the path but that's the only thing I noticed. Yes they have a crew that works specifically with them but the hotel entertainment staff, especially Monica, were wonderful with all of the guests!!!

And last, the rooms were nice and clean each day and the staff works hard to keep the grounds nice and tidy!

We enjoyed our stay and will be back!!

We are on day five of our trip, and we leave the day after tomorrow. I read lots of reviews before getting to the resort. It was recommended to us by a friend of ours. Overall, it was a lovely vacation/honeymoon.
We came for a late honeymoon, and upgraded to a honeymoon suite for the first three nights. I must say, it wasn't really worth it. It doesn't help that it rained like crazy the week before we got here. We had a room in the second floor & it was dreary and had a damp smell. A bit more space, had a seating area with couch and table I addition to the desk. The rest of the room was the same as the deluxe we moved to yesterday. I definitely recommend a room on the top floor. There's no elevator, but it's not a bad walk.the rooms are bright & cheerful...also no bad smell.
All of the staff are polite & try their best to accommodate everyone. It's hit and miss at times to get someone with good English, but no real problems.

The beach- incredible. Beautiful turquoise sea water, powder white sand... fish swimming at your feet, no jellys.. only complaint here is it is a bit small, (fits the resort) and it's hard to find a spot in the shade unless you arrive early. This wasn't a problem for us because we are early risers. It was hard getting drinks delivered on the beach at times, but a short stroll to the bar.
The pool was small, but never crowded. There were always chairs available.

My biggest problem with the resort I believe is due to my picky nature when it comes to food & drink. The restaurants are geared toward the European cultures for the most part. Room service was terrible (only made that mistake once) but a lot of this is because I have a texture issue & most of the foods are soft, and often times buffet food sat out awhile. If you like trying new foods and aren't a picky eater like me you wouldn't mind it (my partner didn't have the same troubles I did) the only places to find American food are the snack bar (my fave) the lunch buffet at times, breakfast was hit & miss and the royal grill is an average steak place. It was quite the culture shock for me & took a couple days to get used to it. There's wonderful wildlife to enjoy.
There are vendors on the weeknights around the resort & some a bit pushy but just keep walking and you'll be fine.

The drinks are all local cheap liquors and wines, but it's free so you make do. The bar in the hotel lobby had the best drinks. I didn't notice a difference I service whether you tipped or not. We did bring $100 in one's And fives to tip here and there.

If you're there more than a couple days GO ON EXCURSIONS. There's a million things to do close by & not much to do on the resort. We did get a massage at the spa, going for another tomorrow as it was lovely. We did the Mayan jungle tour and it was one of the BEST experiences EVER. Tomorrow we swim with dolphins.

Overall, even thru my being picky, we had a Great time. Highly recommended!!!

I read a lot of reviews before our visit about how absolutely perfect this place was. After staying there a week, I gotta say, "Meh." It's nice, but there are better places at the same rate.

The service in the restaurants was not good. The waitstaff is very busy bustling here and there, just never to come back and check on you. Our water glass would be filled and our drinks delivered, but then you'd have to actively stop somebody to get refills. When the food was brought, there was never any follow up. I was brought red wine on one occasion when I ordered white. My wife's appetizer was forgotten at the same meal. If you want a glass of milk with breakfast it takes an act of congress. Tables go un-bussed and just sit there dirty during the duration of your meal.

And the food was very, very average.

The room was basic, bed was good, had a nice big shower - no tub - but I will say that the AC worked wonderfully. And you will need it.

This place is HOT. And not simply because it's located where it is. It is incredibly humid because the resort is poorly designed. With all the lush vegetation along the pathway going 3 stories high between the buildings, the designers forgot to leave any room for a breeze to make it through. It's as still as a stone throughout the resort. I'm talking I was soaking in sweat at 8:30 in the evening going to dinner. And I'm from Houston, Texas. I'm used to heat and humidity.

I also read a lot about how rude some of the guests were, particularly the Italians. I never experienced any of it. In fact, the only obnoxious person we encountered was an American on Day 1 swearing and cursing a rival football fan.

The beach. If you like a small fairly packed beach, you'll like this place. You can always drag your chairs off to the side and find your seclusion, but this beach was too small and packed for me.

Look, your vacation is what you make of it and my wife and I had an excellent time. But if you want a BIG beach, BIG pools, lots of space and a nice open view, go to Barcelo Maya. We've been there twice and would recommend it all day over this place.
