Our Opinion

Pleasant 4-star resort with friendly and attentive staff. The some parts of the beach might be a little rocky. However, there is a lagoon nearby that offers a better entry to the beach. This is a great place for those who want to discover sea life. The resort is well situated near to stores and the main Riviera strip.


Overview

This lively beachfront resort boasts fantastic services, facilities and amenities. Guests of the Catalonia will love the white sand and fresh water lagoon located adjacent to the hotel, a great place for small children to safely experience the sea.  

Location: Directly on the beach, close to the Puerto Aventuras marina, approximately 15 minutes drive to Playa del Carmen, 60 minutes from the airport.


Highlights
  • Family friendly resort with plenty of activities
  • Great spa & fitness centre with waterfall and hydrotherapy pools
  • Located in the Puerto Aventuras resort area with shops and restaurants
  • A number of dining options
  • Free Wi-Fi

Catalonia Yucatan Beach Resort and Spa

We stayed at this resort in 2016 as we had always wanted to visit the Riviera maya. The resort was very clean and the staff very friendly, I have no issues there. The food however was very disappointing as was the evening entertainment and the beach. Photo's of the beach on the internet are very misleading. It is a man made beach and full of rocks. We could not swim in the Carrabean at all. Friends we met there had numerous problems with their room that were not addressed by the hotel. All in all, the vacation was "okay". I would not return to this resort.

No air conditioning and construction noise

We checked in a couple days ago and they put us in a room with two double beds - we had requested a king. Yesterday we moved rooms. It is now 3am and I can't sleep - the air conditioning isn't working and it sounds as though construction crews are working outside my door. I was initially very pleased with how this place is managed - now I'm disappointed.

Great holiday

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, and good food. Love how can go to speciality restaurants without having to pre book. Great location, able to walk to marina and watch dolphins and sea lions whenever we want.Yes there is some minor maintenance work going on but better that than a ramshackle hotel.

Lovely holiday

We've just got back from this hotel, I can't really fault it to be honest just a few small things like there was maintenance going on there (on in a small area) but it's not really what you want to see in your view. The food in the restaurants was lovely and you don't have to book which is quite nice but it wasn't that busy really when we went, on other reviews it says that you can only eat in the restaurants 3 times but we could visit as many times as we wanted but this might of been because it wasn't peak season. The hotel would benefit from more more sun loungers as if we went down a little later (9am) we struggled to get a bed but there is plenty on the beach. The buffet food was good with a cooking station for them to cook fresh meat, but I'm not that keen on buffet. The pro dive staff on the resort are brilliant and very friendly, maybe a little bit pricier but the trips are great would definitely recommend the quad biking trip where you also go zip lining and over brilliant things. Our room was spacious, clean and a brilliant view. The beach is talked about a lot on the reviews it is rocky but still beautiful the hotel have made paths so it is fine, Akumal Bay Beach is definitely worth a visit, there is loads of turtles there but just buy a snorkel and don't pay to do it as they don't do anything different to what you would on your own and only about 15 mins away. But overall the hotel is lovely with brilliant with a lovely setting and views.

Decent

Decent resort - food is ok but nothing great. Crappy beach , rocky and full of seaweed. Certainly not my favourite Mayan resort - been to 5 now. Rooms basic and comfortable. Love that you don't need a reservation for the restaurants but super disappointed that the Italian is only for privileged guests ... did not read that in the fine print. Weather was amazing! Staff is great !
