Our Opinion

The Catalonia Playa Maroma is a very good 3.5 star resort, some would even say 4 star resort. An expansive, white sand beach is the highlight of this resort and exactly what you would expect from a top Riviera Maya beach. The rooms are decent and the food is fine, but the real treat here is the beach. A definite recommendation.


Overview

Catalonia Playa Maroma is surrounded by the native jungle and one of the most gorgeous beaches in the Caribbean. Three-storey villas feature spacious and comfortable interiors and amazing views. If you are looking for the combination of perfect beach holiday and cultural and natural background... this is the place to come.


Location: Located 15 minutes from Playa del Carmen & 35 minutes from the airport.

  • Lots of sports, water sports and activities for all ages

A bit disappointed.

We spent a week (May 3-10) at the Catalonia. We were looking for the perfect location for our 54th anniversary. After reading months of TA comments, we decided on the Catalonia Playa Maroma. The beach was full on seaweed on the day we arrived, but when we hit the beach the second day, it was very clean. Over the next few days, we had perfect beach days and a few not so perfect. We had a honeymoon room which was a bit small for us. We normally get a suite when we travel to Cancun and that's what we expected. One good thing was the room air conditioning was outstanding. The food at the resort was average. The Italian restaurant was the best. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The big downside was we both got terribly sick, we assume from the food, on our 4th day. We had to call a doctor to our room which ended up costing us $1045.00 but it was worth it. He was a very good doctor and he got us on the road to recovery within a day.

Getaway to Catalonia playa Maroma

We traveled out of NY to CPM in April 8-12. It seemed like every school in the country was on break that week. A 25 min cab ride (about $50) to the resort put all of that behind us. We had a privilege room that was remodeled and very nice, clean modern with a balcony with table and chairs. The resort was full but you would never know it. The layout makes it feel very private. Available lounge chairs at both the beach and the pool at 10AM. While the pool was nice, 1 very large pool with different areas (no swim up bar), it was easy for parents to watch their kids - the beach was amazing - white powder sand, many palapas and hundreds of palm trees to lay under. One of the best beaches we've gone to in the Riviera Maya. CPM had 2 bars, a great lobby bar and nice bar out by the beach and pool. The bar service was excellent no watered down cocktails and a shot was a shot. CPM has several dining options. Breakfast was your basic but very good buffet with many options to choose from, many with a Mexican flair. Lunch was similar, you could always find the hamburgers, hotdogs and pizza but you could also find local dishes - all very tasty. For diner you could go to the buffet - again, many options, standard buffet food and many local dishes too. It was enjoyable to try different foods and some familiar ones, too. We tried 3 of the 4 a la carte restaurants. The most disappointing, was the "privilege room only" Tapas Bar. Maybe we expected too much - it was just okay, bland and average. The Mexican Restaurant could go head to head with Rosa Mexicana's in NYC - both excellent food and service. The Italian restaurant was fine, better than fine but not NYC Italian and again the service was excellent. They don't pretend to be an American resort in Mexico. This is a Mexican Resort with the feel that Cancun had 25 year ago. English is spoken ( and many other languages) communicating is not a problem. Will we come back here? - yes it was a great stay!

Great 15 Days

We stayed at the Catalonia Maroma for 15 wonderful days. The beach restaurants were all great especially the waiters Jesus Carlos Querino Edgar were always very attentive. The best bartender ever is Juan but his expertise is wasted tending bar at the Tappas. He can run circles around the 2 bartenders at the beach bar we had to wait sometimes 10-15 minutes for 1 drink & that was with 2 bartenders on duty. Hopefully when we return Juan will be back where he belongs. We. also has a great time with the entertainment crew all work very hard. Our stay was beat and looking forward to coming back soon

Very Nice Resort!

Wonderful resort with good food, friendly staff, lots of food options, clean rooms. A bit noisy but really good for the value. The beach was a bit crowded and most of the guests are Italian and somewhat noisy in general. The ocean had lots of seaweed the first 3 days of our stay but it cleared up after that. Overall It was a really nice resort for the money and I would highly recommend.

Excellent service

I do really appreciate your excellent service, the time that your staff took to make sure that our stay met our expectations and most importantly, the human touch towards us. That by itself, makes a world of difference. Thank you
