    6th Fantastic Vacation at Catalonia

    We just returned from our 6th trip to this resort and are already planning our return in October. Yes, this time there was an enormous amount of seaweed that the staff fought feverishly every day to remove. It certainly is no fault of the resort as Mother Nature is regurgitating all the garbage that we humans have put into the oceans. Now for the positive. Our check-in was speedy and efficient. As we arrived in the early afternoon our room wasn’t quite ready. Not an issue. We checked our luggage with the staff and went for a bite to eat at one of the two buffet restaurants. Our room was located in the 6000 block. It was spacious, clean, cool, quiet and with plenty of storage. The bathroom is equipped with a hair dryer, bathing products and plenty of towels. There is always plenty of food to choose from at the buffet restaurants and the a’la carte restaurants are terrific. Our favourite was Bloved, Japanese and Italian. The staff are friendly and outgoing and they love to teach you a bit of Spanish. Special thanks go to Leobardo, Lucas, Suzette, Carmen, Francisco, Esther, Karyna, Rodrigo, Viviana and Brandon. Amazing service!!! A very, very special thank you to Alix, Guest Service Experience Manager, who always stopped to chat and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. This resort has become a gathering place for us to get together with people we have met from around the world, We can’t wait for our next visit.

    Already planning a second trip

    As our first holiday as a couple I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Upgraded prior to arrival and would 100% say it’s worth the money, our room was spacious mini fridge constantly topped up and a towel figure every day which is a cute touch. Another upgrade perk was getting to see Samuel in the beloved restaurant and Raphael in the pure bar who couldn’t do enough for us. We aren’t big on taking part in activities but none the less Miguel on the entertainment team would check in with us regularly to see how we were and recommend local things for us to try instead. Lots of people complain about the seaweed but it’s well noted everywhere that they have an issue with it and there is a team constantly working to remove it so what more could you ask. In terms of location being so close to the marina was lovely if you fancy a short walk to break up the day. Overall an amazing stay that I couldn’t fault with all staff going above and beyond.

    Mr & mrs

    If you want a beautiful beach stay. This is not the place to go. Full of seaweed. We were very disappointed. Sun beds no no no. Unless you get up at 5am. We went to sit on a beach and relax. You can't do this. Hotel should be 18 to 30 club. This hotel could be great. If the managers. Did there jobs. Thomas Cook needs to review this hotel.. Also told you can't have a beach towels. Come back in one hour. !!!

    Great holiday

    Just came back from a week at the Catalonia Yucatan and it was great! Nice pools, clean rooms with everything we needed. One beach is covered in seaweed but the smaller one was clean enough. The buffets were good, no one got sick. We loved the Italian, Mexican and Japanese restaurants. The Spanish one was a bit disappointing with really small portions. Airport transport with Transat was quick and easy, it took about 1h. Impossible to find a spot under the shade in the afternoon, we had to hide in our room when it was getting too hot. Overall a great hotel for the price, would recommend!

    Pretty nice spot except seaweed

    Really friendly staff. Comfy beds and great bartenders. Japanese and Spanish restaurants were lovely. Not so much the Mexican and steakhouse. Entertainment was ok. Moulin Rouge was good. Not nearly enough pool chairs and they were literally gone by 630. Relaxing though
