    would recommend

    My mom & I took a long weekend to kick of the new year & get some sun! Enjoyed our stay at the Cataloni Playa Maroma - - very friendly staff, a lot of food options, clean rooms/amenities, and a beautiful location to be for 5days. We upgraded to the privileged, which got us a room closer to the pool, a special location on the beach and discounts in the spa/boutique. If these things are important to you, then I would recommend! There is a lot going on during the day at the pool in regards to games/music/fitness classes. The only downside to this is the staff is on the loud microphone the entire day basically, so if you are looking to get more peace head down to the beach.

    Slowly going downhill

    This was my second visit to this resort. My first one was about 5 years ago and I had pretty good experience back than. This time around however it wasn't all that great. Food is blend,you get literally hunted by their people trying to get you to sign up.for their "privilege" club and rooms have all kinds of insects crawling and flying around. Prices for anything is outrageous

    Feel sad about the destroyed beach

    My daughter and I love this hotel. We have been coming here since 2012. It has a fantastic beach however they destroyed it by burying the seaweed into the soft sand every year. I visited this year , in January and the buried seaweed looked like seaweed formed mountains. If they care about the environment, the fantastic beach they had , they should remove those mountains of seaweed. I’m posting a picture of it.

    We will be at your resort on January 26 to February 8. 2 weeks!!! We have never been before but we have been to Catalonia Yucatan Beach Resort. We loved it but found it a bit far so we found Catalonia Playa Maroma which is closer to center town. We hope to love it as much as as we did the Yucatan one. The only question I have is how to contact you as I would like a room at the lower level as my husband has problems with his knees and has a hard time with stairs. We booked online and can't find a way to contact. No phone as it's long distance. Thank You
