Funny thing, as I read some of the negative reviews I can't help but think some folks should just stay at home. At least that way their personal butlers and maids can tend to their needs well before they are in crisis... :) I must start by saying that the entire staff of the Catalonia Riviera Maya/Catalonia Yucatan are wonderful...

Had a great stay. Food was really good with lots of variety. We upgraded to a suite, not sure what the bonus was. The king bed was great but the couch pullout was terrible. It had you sleep in a V shape, legs higher then your head, with wood poking your back, and very creeky.Maid service was fabulous and always...

We have made many visits to the Catalonia, but sadly will not return. We first came in January last year and if you read our review loved it! The food is now terrible. They use to be ample to choose from, now it's very basic and on the cheap. So much effort went into the preparation before as every where...

We were recommended this location by friends who have been here before. Location in the closed gated community was nice. It's a very rocky shore area. Many of the 'restaurants' were closed due to not enough people being around. The food was substandard in my opinion. No bacon or real sausage (only bacon once that week and was gone in...

Having never stayed at an all inclusive before we weren't really sure what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised given the amount of money we paid for the holiday! Standard rooms were a little shabby but really spacious and clean. No problems with the supply of clean sheets towels and toiletries either. The staff were attentive and friendly and...

Let me start off by saying that this was not a terrible resort by any means. It was pretty okay for the cost. However, this is the third resort in Mexico I have stayed at in a year and I have (2) 5 Star resorts to compare it to. My husband and I have already decided we would pay the...

The other vacationers were the best part of my experience at the Catalonia. I went by myself and would have been perfectly content to read alone on the beach, but what a great surprise to find out that I thoroughly enjoyed the people I met. I loved hanging out at the poolside bars and playing volleyball! The two biggest disappointments...

This resort was a last minute choice, literally went online and booked it the night before from another Cancun hotel we were staying at. We rented a car for $40USD/day, and drove to Puerto Aventuras to the Catalonia Riviera Maya resort; about 1 1/2 hrs away. Stay two nights 2/11/11 and 2/12/11. We enjoyed this place, nice clean, roomy, room...
