Catalonia Playa Maroma  

The Catalonia Playa Maroma boasts a prime setting on a world-class beach, along with seven restaurants, three bars and an impressive pool scene.

This place gets its name from the long stretch of dove-white sand on its doorstep. Punta Maroma beach carpets the coast for five miles. It’s also a 25-minute taxi ride in the other direction to Playa del Carmen.

The property is cocooned by acres of mangrove forests. And it’s been designed to blend in with its tropical setting. Hacienda-style villas with thatched-roof terraces look out over the hammock-dotted grounds.

beautiful beach but we won't be returning

mostly Italians staring at us and little kids screaming. definitely not a party/club kind of resort or a place with good open energy. we'll definitely be looking at an adults only resort and that's not frequented by snobby wanna be middle class italians... so offputting as far as service, we felt discriminated against because we were american. the front desk was hit or miss when we called with questions. i was looking for our expedia agent on site and one of them transferred me to a supervisor who rudely said i don't know where she is i don't work with her and hung up on me. we felt helpless and did not feel like customers, more like subjects. some of the staff is lovely, especially the front bar staff and the beach bar staff, as well as the terrace waiters always had a smile on their face. otherwise, the waiters never smiled, and even though i spoke very good spanish, all i can remember is them frowning at me when i was trying to speak their language, and when they were serving us. some of these people work really hard, so tip accordingly. our room was amazing, cleaned every day and hot water and ac. however i left one of my portable batteries in the room and it mysteriously disappeared. i didn't say anything because i knew it would have been a waste of my time. i put all jewlery and semi-valuable items in the safe every day before leaving, after our first incident. also there was a note about removing hotel items that just seemed like they were assuming everyone steals. we were terrified to misplace a hand towel. the food is just sad really. stale, tasteless, uninteresting. for drinks, ask for double alcohol or you'll just be drinking sugar. the beach is warm and beautiful, but not much to swim in. lastly, there is no difference between standard and privileged. they never checked out wristbands or dinner coupons at restaurants. different color towels didn't do anything to keep standard guests from occupying the privileged area of the beach, which was by all means over crowded with beach chairs.More

Rina K,

Great vacation at Catalonia Playa Maroma

A very good hotel, at a great beach. The food was excellent, the animation team was beyond words, very friendly and hardworking people! The surrounding area was very beautiful. The pool was made by a very hard material. More

Catolonia Playa Morona

We loved the friendliness of the staff. The resort itself was very well kept. The food was really good and tasty. Our rooms were spacious and well kept. I had a small problem with our a/c not blowing cold air but was assured that it would be fixed. I wasn't disappointed, the maintenance staff was outstanding. More


Our Adventure

Enjoyed our stay. This was our first time at a all inclusive resort and our first time in Mexico. Everyone was very helpful and polite. The staff was always helpful and had a smile on their face! I would definitely come back!More
