It was a short trip of 4 nights for my husband birthday. We really like the quietude of the resort. The beach was nice with plenty of chaises with palm tree for shade. The pool is not as large as other resort that we went but was still nice with the bar. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The "a la carte" restaurants was delicious (we tried the Mexicans and the Japanese, 5 starts for services and foods). The only complaint will be for the buffet and "snack" that was provided close to the pool area. The buffet was small and lack on diversity and taste... it was also annoying that the buffet was close for a few hours on the day. In all the other resort that we did, the buffet was always open. The snacks next to the pool was poor in choices and quantity. Overall we had a great time and appreciate the resort.

Amazing weeklong stay at the Catalonia Playa Maroma Hotel with spouse and 3 older children. The hotel and property are beautiful and impeccably clean and well-managed. Check in was super easy with no line. There was an issue with our rooms at first in that one was a single rather than double but our bellboy, Juan, quickly remedied the issue for us. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and mini fridge restocked daily with water, pop, etc. Can't say enough about the buffet at this hotel! Normally, with all inclusive, offerings are limited and food is just meh. At this hotel, there were new items every day and 99 percent of the food tasted amazing! Special shoutout to our favorite waitress, Lucila! She was genuinely warm and attentive, as well as humorous and truly made each meal enjoyable! The rest of the buffet and a la carte staff did not seem personable at all which is really my only complaint about this hotel. The pool is clean and cool. Had no trouble finding chairs any time of day. Towel service worked perfectly throughout our vacation and pool waiters were very attentive and friendly. Music/entertainment at pool was a bit loud but energizing nonetheless. The beach at Catalonia is beautiful with no shortage of shade from palm trees and lounge chairs. No rocks on this beach which was a huge improvement over the last resort we stayed at in this area. Beach waiters were also very attentive. Overall, I would rate this hotel a 9/10. Coatis were so cute!!!

The scenery and wildlife were great, the restaurants we got to eat at were good, Toscana and the Grill were our favorites. It was worth the extra money to stay in the privileged room to get the extra restaurant plus we took advantage of the spa discounts and the shopping discounts. The food at Bloved was very good especially the breakfast. The buffet was not good. None of the food seemed warm or very fresh I also didn’t like that you can’t have mimosas with breakfast until after 10am. The entertainment staff was great! They work so hard everyday with all the activities and they put on great shows at night. The spa was small but nice enough, our massages were amazing and very relaxing. All in all I think this is a good property for the price.

As you arrive to the hotel, the front lobby is mesmerizing. Don’t and I repeat don’t buy the privilege option, why? There’s not a big difference with a regular pass and the privilege pass. I was told that with a privilege pass I’ll had better food options at the restaurants within the property and drinks, that was a lie. I had the same menu as someone with a regular pass. If you go to the buffet restaurant order extra drinks because more than likely you won’t get a refill (not enough employees for the amount of customers). The staff is super friendly, look for Armando at the front lobby and Fernando the photographer. If you plan to stay at this property for a week or more than a week go somewhere else. I was advised by the staff to stay in Cozumel. Overall my stay at this property was okay.

LOVED this property! The staff was amazing, happy and always ready to serve! The food was great, rooms were clean and everyone was so kind! There were lots of activities, but I will say, it would have been helpful to have a schedule of activities. We knew the big theme night activity, but the smaller stuff like pool workouts, zumba and games was all kind of hit or miss because we didnt know when they would happen. The only other thing that was disappointing was the pool closed at 8pm! I don't know if that was a covid thing, but seemed very early to close the pool! The restaurants were not all open at the same time, but that wasn't a huge deal. You just have to look at the schedule to see which one is open that evening. We truly had a fantastic time...and would for sure come back!!

The gardens on the property r well maintained and appealing. The path to the main lobby is pretty with its rain forest ambiance. The white sandy beach was great. And though they can’t control the ocean...the shoreline was about a foot high in sea grass and 24 feet out to get to cleaner water. They attempted clean up one day during my stay

I was a bit skeptical about booking this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but decided to go for it, and I am glad I did. The hotel is not as big as others I've stayed in; this was a plus. It was easy to get from one place to another (i.e. lobby to pool/beach). Everything was within walking distance. Staff was super friendly and very hardworking. The "animation" team was fantastic! I loved their interaction with the guests. They definitely made our stay more fun. We also enjoyed the nightly shows and entertainment which were family-friendly. We stayed in building 4 which was close to the pool/beach. Our room was great - big and clean. The only downside: A/C was not working properly (that was a real bummer) and our room key kept deactivating. We, however, did not let this get to us. I had read a lot of negative reviews concerning the food, but I thought the food was great. We ate at the buffet most of the time. Lots of fresh fruits, which I happen to love. We also tried the Steakhouse and Bloved for dinner - no complaints! The grounds were clean and very "green" - lots of trees. The pool and beach were not as packed as I thought they would be. We ended up spending more time by the pool, but the beach was beautiful. My group consisted of 6 adults, 3 teenagers, and 3 children (ages 4 - 11); there was something for everyone. We all had a great time at the Catalonia and can't wait to go back.

The people were nice and friendly. The food was amazing. Loved the restaurants. The cleanest of the room was amazing. I was blown away that the room was cleaned twice at day. I loved the hotel overall.
