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

Holiday in June 2017

Well what can I say, this was a fantastic resort with friendly staff & clean everywhere. A few pools to choose from as 2 hotels together which you can use facilities of both. Great beach area and water really warm. We probably wouldn't choose to go in June again as the weather is very unpredictable. Had a few storms the first week that cleared into brilliant sunshine then last 3 days were very cloudy & wet. Hot air constantly blowing & very humid but overall very enjoyable. Entertainer team were very good & work extremely hard. We would definately come back to this resort, food & drinks available all day & plenty to choose from.

Lovely Hotel, Great Location - would recommend

We stayed for Christmas & New Year and had a very enjoyable holiday at this hotel and would highly recommend it everyone was very happy and helpful the room we stayed in was over looking the beautiful gardens and you had a view right down to the sea the food was always very good we had no complaints. There was always plenty going on in and around the pool areas from foam parties to bands during the day which was pleasant to watch, and also a small beach, the room was cleaned every day and ever day we had a different piece of towel art left by our lovely maid which we looked forward to The area that it was in was very good because you can have a lovely walk down to the Marina which is only a short walk away and you can see the dolphins,sea lions and manatees everyday with out charge where you can swim with them if you wish..for a charge, the marina has several restaurants and is a nice walk. great location to get taxi's which were cheap to the places to see, e.g the turtles, hotel also has a lovely spa ...we loved our stay and would definately go back & stay

Perfect Resort

The room was clean and quaint, simple, just fine for us. All Staff was amazing, so very nice, considerate, pleasant, fun, helpful. Food was unbelievably great, and I live in a very gourmet city, I was thrilled every night. Even the buffets were delicious and varied every day. We didn't go to the nightly festivities, we had busy days so went to relax instead. Will definitely go again. Desk clerk Armando was the best. Snorkeling on the hotel site was fantastic, a friend recommended the place and she really nailed it. My husband and I were in blissful heaven. I even got a wonderful massage at the spa. We went to many excursions which were close by and awesome.

One off the bucket list

Spent and idyllic fortnight here at the beginning of May. Location was superb,lots to see and do locally. Rooms were just somewhere to sleep , basic , clean and tidy. Staff could not do enough for you and always with a smile. Had 2 small problems with our safe and bathroom , both were dealt with in an efficient manner within 20 mins. A la Carte restaurants food was excellent, the 2 buffets always had a wide variety of well prepared food on offer. Excursions can be booked through your travel rep or hotel. We swam with the dolphins at Dolphin Discovery which is 5 mins from the hotel. I would advise booking the photo package as all photos of you taken during your time there are included as opposed to picking a few and haggling over a price. We also swam with the sea turtles at Tulum which was quite simply breathtaking.The hotel offers you the chance of a free scuba trial ( in the pool ) as well as free snorkel hire, kayaks and catamaran trips.As for which currency to take, take pesos. Dollars are accepted in most places but as we were coming from the UK , i didn't see the point in changing money twice. You can take $100 dollars if you wish ( in small bills ) to use as tips. All in all a relaxing , never to be forgotten fortnight spent in paradise.PS , if you don't like Iguanas , don't look at the wood piles on the other side of the hotels fence.

***My adventure to Mexico***

Wow!! First time to Mexico and I stayed at the Catalonia Yucatan Beach hotel. I loved every second of it from the minute I arrived & was given a cocktail at reception. Travelled from 27th May to 10th June. Experienced a little rain some mornings but then resulted in s scorcher of a day. Heavy Thunder & Lightning a couple of nights and on my departure day this was the worst rain i'd seen. I would not let this put you off. Even when cloudy the sun is hot. I arrived white & departed with a lovely brown tan. The resort staff work so hard. The minute the rain comes on they are out with the brushes to sweep the water away, the barman work around the clock, the up keep of the resort is down to the hard work the staff put in. Seaweed is constantly being cleared off the beach by the staff along with removing any rubbish, and they always have a smile on their faces. The beach was lovely especially looking at the fish at the lagoon but the beach is rocky towards one side more. The sand is still soft & white and the sun still shines. The restaurants are all so good. My favourite being the Mexican (Alebrijes). The Italian (Bellavista) was delicious & so was the Steak house (Bamboleo). The Japanese was absolutely delicious too (Ayami) although the food rather salty. I wasn't a fan of the Tapas. Small portions and only 2 per person. The El Mercado was my favourite Buffet restaurant. Plenty to choose from and very very friendly staff. The Entertainment team, well what can I say. They work extremely hard around the clock. Entertaining during the day then rehearsing for Theatre shows every night. Erik Torres was my favourite entertainment staff. Always a smile on his face & great rapport around the pool ;-) My room was fantastic too. People moan about rooms needing painted etc but to me, I thought it was perfectly fine. Cleaner came nearly everyday, towel animals made on occcasion normally when I left a tip out. Only major downfall for me was the plug points. I had one accessible one and that was all. Fridge stocked daily with water & fresh towels every day. The Beach Towels are a fantastic thing too, obtaining one whenever you wish. I would definitely visit this hotel again. I loved every second and the sun and heat was fantastic. I done the Paradise Island trip to Isla Contoy which was stunning & I took the bus to Playa Del Carmen on my own. All totally fine if not very sweaty 😀
