    Good position, great services! We spent a really good week here, at the end of May, and we are super satisfied! The room was very good and the restaurants had a good and various offer, each day. We hope to have the chance to return soon!

    Daughter's wedding and wife's birthday in June/ Our twelfth trip to CRT 2019

    We will be visiting CRT for the 12th time (sometimes twice a year) June 5th to see friends from Denmark and to celebrate my beautiful wife's birthday, and to visit with our friends that are still working at the resort. My daughter was married at Catalonia Royal last year in June and it was a wonderful experience for her and all of our friends and relatives . We had a small wedding with about 40 guests that were so impressed that some have talked about getting married there too. It was an experience that we all will never forget thanks to the staff and the management at CRT. Everyone was really impressed with the arrangements put together by the hard-working people at the resort and the music was so good that we could have danced all night. The weather was perfect and the beach was beautiful like always. We are always treated like VIPs and the regulars now remember us by our first names. We can't say enough about how we have been treated at the resort. The food and the rooms are always top-notch and they always remember our special celebrations. We were honored several years ago with a plaque and palm tree placed by the pool-side with our names as "DISTINGUISHED REPETITIVE GUESTS". We were so excited and honored that they would go to all the trouble to present us with this tribute. We are anxious to visit and to check on our palm tree. We can't wait to get there and we are packed and ready to go !!! Our friends from Denmark will arrive at our house tomorrow and a few days later we hope to be at CRT !!!

    A perfect place to be

    Adults only! Last May was my 10th time at The Catalonia. This should be a clue! It is definitely my drug of choice. The reason I go back, is just because it is a perfect place to be. As soon as you arrive to the Catalonia, their hospitality is above anything that I have seen. 1 hour and 15 minutes away from Cancun airport, it is worth the extra ride. Located in a jungle on a very quiet beach, you get the best of both worlds.. The staff as well as the guests are amazing. I always meet wonderful people from the UK, States and Europe. It is a quiet resort with only adults of all age groups. They have a wonderful Spa and it is worth getting a massage there. Don't miss the dinner show, RAUXA! Fantastic food in a very original presentation and the show is amazing. Not for conservative hearts. Unfortunately we missed it this time. It was their break time, so we have another reason to go back. When I was there, they were building an addition to the pool, a bar! Not that I really care for it because I'm a beach person but I'm sure this will please a few customers. It should be ready by July 2019. The rooms are very clean and they supply everything! There's a mini bar with drinks and snacks. You may also get room service 24/24 So basically what is great there? Location, environment, staff, food (no reservation needed), pool, guests, gym, spa and of course wonderful drinks!

    Great Stay!

    First time at Catalonia Royal in Tulum and it was definitely worth it. Like a lot of people, I poured out reviews on TripAdvisor and sometimes it's hard to decipher good resorts from the bad ones because one person gives a resort 5 stars and says it's excellent, and another will give it 1 star and say it's the worst resort ever. With that in mind, I will give you my opinion and you can take it for what it's worth. This resort was exactly what we were looking for in terms of relaxation, service, scenery, and fun. This is adults only so no kids, but this is not a party resort with 20-something year-olds lining up shots at the bar. There is no DJ pumping out dance music loud at the pool. There are some activities but they don't include beer pong, flip cup, or any sort of frat party games. If that's what you are looking for, this probably isn't the place for you and you'll think the day activities and nightly entertainment is corny. They did have some music at the pool and beach area but it wasn't loud where you can’t hear the person next to you talk. The rooms were nicely done, air conditioning worked great, and the cleaning staff was excellent. All the meals we had including the buffet were great. The Bloved restaurant is excellent and we got the upgraded package for breakfast and lunch there. The beach was great, and although the seaweed is a problem in this area, they worked to clear the sand as much as possible. Overall had an excellent stay and would definitely go back and recommend anyone traveling to the area to stay here.

    Still at Catalonia Royal Tulum and you have to come here!

    I have been coming here for a few years now and here is what you need to know: BOOK AND GET HERE. Stop looking for any other place: -5 star service &gourmet food -Relaxing &at the same time absolutely satisfying -Kind &loyal employees (many here for years) -A private oasis, close enough to do all the excursions you may want to explore -Rooms are beautiful, comfy beds,&a large Roman style shower with rain shower &a wand with water pressure most don’t even get at home -A SAFE place -Night time entertainment is great -RAUXA show is a must! google Rauxa, you won’t be disappointed! -BEACH is spectacular (yes the area has been struck by sargassum (seaweed tops not the whole root)that has come here from Bermuda etc.but they have a whole crew who shovel, rake, &a tractor and trailer that maintain & clean up every morning. KEEP IT MIND IT IS NOT EVERY DAY AND THE WATER IS STILL WARM AND GORGEOUS!) -A responsive &genuinely thoughtful management at the hotel who will not only hear your concerns but work to fix any issues..SERIOUSLY THEY DO! -Delicious food, I can’t even begin to describe it, and one PRO TIP: IF you arent sure what the item is, order it anyhow and try a few dishes at a time, there is no limit &this way we have discovered our favourite dishes simply by daring to try something we arent sure of! &the staff won’t hesitate or deter you from ordering 1, 2+appetizers or entree’s! They are just wanting you to enjoy yourself. Ok, I will post again but now back to the beach.
