Catalonia Playa Maroma Review by 2 Portuguese Lovers

Hi Caribbean lovers we stayed at Catalonia Playa Maroma for two weeks in September and we loved it! The staff in the hotel was very friendly and attentive our special thank you for Felipe in Margarita’s bar at swimming pool, for Rodrigo and Kevin at animation team they all are amazing and make us feel like home and happy! The tematic restaurants was very nice the food is delicious but the buffet Pajarito was not so good because doesnt have much variety. Also have to mention the effort by the staff at the beach that cleans every day the “sargaço”. I hope one day we could come back to this hotel and see again this friendly faces! Thank you so much for having us!

Hi Caribbean lovers we stayed at Catalonia Playa Maroma for two weeks in september 2018 and we loved it. The food in the tematic restaurants was amazing and delicious the only one that could be better was the buffet Pajarito because doesnt have much variety and offer. The animation team was awesome very friendly and fun our special thanks for Rodrigo and Kevin! In general the staff was very nice and attentive.

The location was great, the food was great and the staff was great. We would return for sure and already are planning for next year. Hopefully the a/c will be upgraded. Other than that, this resort should be considered as a great pick for anyone!

Good Value

This was my second trip to Catalonia Playa Maroma. We booked the Privileged Honeymoon room. I think this is a good resort for the price, and the privileged level is very worth it for the better restaurants.I was not very impressed with the drink quality, though the lobby bar is better than the pool bars. They've also moved the terrace restaurant off the balcony since my previous visit several years ago. On this visit, I had several issues with honeymoon amenities that staff said would be resolved, but I ended up leaving for the airport without ever receiving.

Stayed at this resort for 3 nights for the 4th of July holiday. The welcoming of the hotel was okay. Most resorts are more welcoming with open arms and have more staff to check in. We had upgraded so we had to walk all the way down to the “privileged” check in which is close to the pool. The room was disappointing. Not that I was expecting something super high end but it was not even average. The room always felt damp and humid even with the AC on and sheets smelled wet like it was left in the washer. The activities were very minimal. Not many games at the pool, the club onsite was dead and sad the beach was not beautiful and blue because of the seaweed problem. What saved this review from being a 1 rating was the food. I will say the restaurants were great. The staff was extremely friendly and there was a lot of variety. We were only allowed to go to 2 restaurants out of the 3 nights. Overall the stay was okay. It could’ve been better with the rooms being updated but I would not stay here again.
