Our Opinion

Great adults-only resort. There are typical buffet items and a variety of a la carte items to choose from. While the resort caters to adults-only clients, parts of the beach have a tendency to get a little noisy, due to the animation team.


Overview

Located on beautiful Xpu-Ha Beach, this deluxe adults-only resort provides a romantic setting with a peaceful atmosphere. Surrounded by native jungle trees, local plants, mangroves and cenotes - natural underground springs, native to the Mayan Coast.

Location: On Xpu-Ha Beach in the Mayan Riviera, between Cancun and Tulum, 15 min from Playa del Carmen, 45 min from the airport, close to the archeological sites of Coba & Tulum.


Highlights
  • Nice pool area with Balinese beds
  • Large beautiful beach 
  • Spacious rooms with furnished balconies
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Surrounded by jungle and natural cenotes
  • Awarded TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence

Beach lovers only! No excellence riviera maya

Let me start by saying I travel quite a bit and really not one to sweat the small stuff. I just have a lot of resorts to compare to and know what I like!First impression checking in was not very good. Nobody was smiling to great you, it felt like you were just another customer. They gave you a welcome drink which was not so welcoming when it tastes like aspartame and all chemically. Check in was quick and painless besides them trying to make you upgrade to “preferred” status. Which I’m sooo glad we didn’t because you only get to eat at one extra restaurant and get to sit at another section of the beach which was just the same as the “non preferred” beach! We checked into room to find 2 full beds instead of 1 king. We had to walk all the way back to lobby switch rooms ( after traveling all day I would expect the resort to get it right the first time around) I felt like they didn’t even care or apologize for the rooms being wrong.Rooms are very basic and standard. No jacuzzi. Beds were comfy, nice shower, and clean.Restaurants need lots of help. The buffets at breakfast and lunch were the best thing to eat and that isn’t really saying much... Ask for David because he is the very best and goes above and beyond to get you what you need and in a hurry! Room service was just alright. Very slim pickings. Who doesn’t serve mimosas to your room?!?! Very odd. Coffee and breakfast was good though.Wifi was very good through out resort even down by the beach!Entertainment.... what entertainment?!? They try... but not very much going on in the day...and all you here is crickets at night. The night club is bumping but with absolutely no one in it!The one and only pool they have is very pretty to look at and very spacious because no body is in it. Nobody is in it because even on the hottest day it is freezinggg! No swim up bar but plenty of awesome servers to get you what you need. Also there is a bar like 2 steps away. Mud slides, mimosa’s, champagne, scooby doo shots, and beer were our drinks of choice! Everything else was not sooo good but they tried! Only one hot tub. THE BEACH!!!!!! Is paradise!!!! Perfecto! I can honestly look past all the petty stuff because of the beach alone! Plenty of chairs, white sand, calm water, heaven! The servers on the beach are so hard working and awesome too!The resort is small which is nice. The walk through out the resort was pretty cool. Never seen anything like it. It felt like you were walking right through the rain forest! Lots of cool friendly animals, birds and fish to look at.I recommend the dinner show! It was everything and more then I expected! Very entertaining!If you want a good cocktail that actually tastes like the ones you get at home... go to lobby bar. Great vodka and tonics! With real Canada Dry and vodka that I drink at home! Shout out to all the servers! They work sooo hard!All in all just an okay resort in my opinion . Nothing really horrible and nothing really fantastic. Just in between. The beach is the best part of the resort. I probably won’t be back to this resort, but it was a good experience for the budget!

Our second time there... and there's gonna be many more time!

This was our second time at CRT and again, I felt in love with this resort for a second time. The beach is beautiful, food & restaurants are very good (including the 24hrs services to the room), the shows are great, and the staff is more than kind with us. The room was very clean and they come every evening to change the towel and prepare the room for bedtime. Point of improvement : They should consider having the main pool heated: no one use it, since the water is way to cold (even for a canadian like me who is used to cold...!!!) Special thanks to Pamela, Eryck, Hector (members of the entertainment team) and to Josian on the beach (she was so nice with us!) I 100% recommand this resort and I will certainly come back again for my future holidays!

Excellent holiday in a small and peaceful resort

Do not hesitate and GO! Food (5 restaurants + amazing buffets) is excellent, beach is beautiful with clean water and white sand. The staff is friendly and recognizes you as the resort has only 288 rooms.

Amazing

This is the first time my husband and I have stayed at an all inclusive resort, and I spent quite a bit of time researching, reading reviews, looking at pictures, and checking out beachscapes on satellite map before choosing Catalonia. We loved that it was a smaller resort but still had great amenities and multiple dining options. As far as food, there were tons of tasty options at the breakfast and lunch buffets, and the three a la carte restaurants we ate at (Centenario, Tao Cat, and Terrace Tapas) were absolutely delicious, and we loved the bar in the lobby and juice bar at the beach as well.Now, speaking of the beach... when I saw the beach for the first time I was like the emoji with hearts for eyes. Soft white sand, beautiful turquoise water, and lush vegetation as far as you can see, with plenty of seating and hammocks for lounging, and palm-tree provided shade to save my pale self from sunburn. A lot of the properties around Catalonia are abandoned, so there's a long stretch of beach on either side that isn't mobbed with people. We had a great time paddleboarding, kayaking, and of course swimming. The pool looked nice but you're never going to see me in a pool when I could be in the ocean. Our room was perfect, and the gardens that run through the center of the resort give it a secluded feeling.The real magic of Catalonia though, is their fantastic staff. Literally every single employee we spoke to was so friendly. My husband and I both speak some Spanish, and are always glad for the opportunity to converse with native speakers, and Catalonia's wonderful staff were more than happy to oblige us. There was one waiter in particular who stood out, and came over to greet us and chat briefly even when he wasn't serving us at the breakfast and lunch buffets, and that was Antonio. I really hope the Catalonia resort appreciates their staff and the excellent service they provide as much as my husband and I did.
