    Fantastic Value for Money

    We had a wonderful stay at the Catalonia Hotel. It was excellent value for money with great facilities. The place was beautiful and the food was good. We particularly liked the staff, who were the most friendly, helpful staff we have met. A shoutout to the buffet staff, who were fabulous!

    Not a pleasant stay at Catalonia Royal Tulum

    Travelled May 2024 with wife and daughter, two separate Privilege class rooms. We have traveled for 30 years to more than 25 countries, and the stay at Catalonia was not the best. First the CONS: 1. A/C in my daughter's room was not working properly and was at bare minimum. Repair man came and said it was working fine. We called again, and no-one came by. My daughter had to be content in a room with the ceiling fan running at full blast. 2. Too many animals floating around in our pathway to the beach and front desk (iguana and raccoon-like animals). The hotel is surrounded by rain forest. 3. Our rooms were very dated - mattress was old and saggy. Room furniture needed replacement, with only one sitting chair with saggy cushion that, when seated, would feel like you are going down to the floor. Same furniture story at the main reception sitting area. The rooms and furniture need to be updated / upgraded. 4. Worst beach we have ever seen in my life, with so much weed (no fault of hotel management) that one could hardly walk for 5 minutes on the water side without coming across a pile of weeds. Try cross over to walk on dry sand, and it would be hot. 5. Food was average at the Palapa hut buffet, with the same food menu every day. The dessert, drinks, and fruits were very good. The A La Carte restaurants were all good, except for the Tapas restaurant which was out in the open with mosquitoes flying all over your body and food. The RAUXA restaurant was the best, with live show and excellent food. Now the PROS: 1. The staff is AMAZING. Quetzabel at the Palapa hut, would make our day with her always smiling face and excellent hostess service for the sit in at the buffet. It was because of Quetzabel, that made a difference in our stay. 2. The pool was very well maintained. 3. Nice place if you want to relax, as this is not a party place. 4. Saturday Mexican theme buffet with the Mariachi band was a hit. 5. Tipping is not expected, as the staff will always service you with a smile, but we always gave them US$ tips, and they would be so appreciative. We paid premium price for the all inclusive resort, thinking it would be in the same line standard as some of the other resorts we have been in Cancun and Mayan Riviera, but were very disappointed with the sub-standard of the resort. We will not return.

    Charly, Georgina, Paulina and Shamed made the experience so much fun and exciting. I would definitely would come back again. Everyday was a blast since the day we got here. We meet the best people that made our trip so fun. Could be here all day with these people. Ricardo the bar tender makes the best drinks!!!!!
