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.

Paraíso en la tierra / paradise on earth

Mi familia (con dos niñas pequeñas) pasamos 10 días en este hotel en el mes de julio. Punta Maroma es un lugar paradisiaco y el Hotel Catalonia te ayuda a disfrutar de todo. El personal del hotel es amable y eficiente. Las instalaciones están muy limpias y son bastante amplias. La comida es espectacular! Hay un equilibro muy agradable de clientes de diversas edades, con y sin niños, y de diferentes lugares de Europa y América. El ambiente es perfecto. Un solo "pero": el "check-in duro demasiado.My family (with two kids) spent 10 days at this hotel in July. Punta Maroma is a truly paradisiac place, and the Hotel Catalonia helped us enjoyed every aspect of this amazing spot. The hotel personnel is very kind and efficient. The hotel itself is beautiful and quite spacious. The food was spectacular!! There is a good balance between people from different parts of the world, young and older, with and without kids. The atmosphere was perfect. Just one small "but": the check-in was a little bit slow.

Vacation

Staff very welcoming, helpful, quick. Resort clean. Food excellent . No waiting in restaurant only issue was Italian ...very, very long wait at entrance and even more wait to be served. Beach is beautiful sand with enough chairs. No rocks in the ocean .... we have grass but that is nature so you can do nothing about. They clean regularly all day. Overall great

Perfect getaway

This resort was excellent. It had a very laid back & relaxed feel to it. They maintain the property very clean. They even cleared the beach of any seaweed every morning. Catalonia had an extensive variety in food & drinks (alcoholic & non-alcoholic). The only con about the food is that it could've used more salt. Other than that we enjoyed our stay very much. Wish I could've stayed a few extra days.

Pros and Cons

We stayed at this hotel between 31st July and 14th August 2017. The hotel and it's grounds are beautiful. The wildlife that lives within the hotel's jungle areas is wonderful, particularly the coatis and the lizards which we saw lots of. The hotel is very clean in all areas, the food is plentiful and varied, and the staff are the best I've known at a hotel. A big thank you to Amilcar and Domingo in the buffet restaurant for their excellent service. They are all so friendly, polite, helpful and pleasant.The hotels entertainment programme during the day is quite good, unfortunately, most of the evening entertainment just wasn't for us. The entertainment team are very talented but as they covered the majority of the entertainment, it was a series of song and dance routines mostly, which didn't attract our interest. Having said that, the Rock and Love show was good, as was Circo and Mr Catalonia. There were two downsides to this hotel for us. Firstly, the distance to the nearest town is about a 20 minute drive (Playa del Carmen), at a cost of 380 pesos each way - approx £36 for the round trip. The hotel is a 30-40 minute walk in the heat and humidity to the main road where you can catch a minibus to town. So, not ideally situated! It would be great if the hotel could provide a shuttle bus service to town and back - just a suggestion.Secondly, time shares are sold at this hotel, and members of staff lie to you in order to get you to a registration meeting. While at the pool on our first day, we were approached by Edgar. He invited us to breakfast with him the following day and said that he would arrange a free massage for my husband and I. We were straight away suspicious and questioned the reason for this generosity. He was very sketchy with the details and wouldn't answer my questions directly. He tracked us down later that day with an invitation to the free massage asking us to bring our credit card with us. Why if it's a free massage? Again, Edgar wouldn't give us a straight answer, just saying "you just need to flash it at the member of staff". He was actually trying to get us to go to a time share registration meeting, which we knew nothing about. Very dishonest. Don't lie to your customers. Ask them if they are interested and accept their answer. Do not try to dupe them!!A note about Playa Del Carmen. Salesmen spot the all inclusive wristband and know which hotel you're staying at straight away and pretend they were your waiter in order to engage with you before they go in with the hard sell.Also, the water sports people on the beach give you a different price each time you speak to them. Watch out for the man that calls himself Big Mama, as he likes to over inflate the prices!Overall a lovely hotel. Shame about the location buy we enjoyed our holiday none the less.

Family/friends vacation!!! 🌴🌞🍹🍸🍻🥂

The resort was nice and really enjoyed walking through what looked like the jungle to our room. The room we were in the AC did not work great, so felt like I could never get cooled down. The restaurants were nice, but again not cool enough. I know they are going to update some of them this month so I do hope they work on AC. The Terrace was wonderful if you could sit outside at night and get the breeze off the ocean. The staff was great. We were in the pool of course everyday and the entertainment staff were awesome. Rodrigo was always so energetic and always came over and got us involved in the activity and he knew our names and when he seen us through out the resort he would make sure he came and talked to us. He made us feel so welcomed and just like we were friends. Martha our waitress at the pool was awesome as well. We had 14 people in our group and ordering multiple drinks at a time and she always did a great job. The entertainment crew works very hard and long days and still have a smile on their faces after the show. They work 17+ hours a day and have no problem taking a minute to make you feel good.
