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.

Holidays in México

We chose this hotel due to its famous beach and smaller size in comparison to others in the area. The beach did not disappoint. Nevertheless the algaes are a problem and the machine used seems to be too small for the job. Entertainment staff seems adequate in number. The schedule seems well balanced. For some reason the entertainment staff does not speak to some nationalities. I also did not find adequate the constant beer contests, especialy when they interrupted a group of children dancing near the beach to start a drinking competition. Entertainment should show us more of the mexican culture. The room was confortable and clean. The buffet was adequate but other restaurants and food areas had its problems, with long lines (45m) with empty tables, slow service, late opening (juice bar), few snack options and very poor options after 22h30. Drinks at the beach were poorly prepared while service was much better at the bar in the reception. Hotel personal were generally nice and efficient. Surroundings are interesting with all the animals and security works very well.More

Great hotel, but the staff really makes the difference

I have stayed at several all-inclusive hotels and resorts, so I know what I am going to get of the restaurants, rooms, pools and entertainment, Catalonia Playa Maroma fulfilled almost all the expectations and exceeded a couple. Food was great, maybe a little of “punch” was missing in the Mexican dishes, but I understand that they are cooked with the international guests in mind, near to the pool is a creperie, just behind to the bar, that serves crepes, milk shakes and ice cream, all of them tasty, but sometimes it gets crowded so you’ll have to wait several minutes, at lunch time you can get a nice hamburger next to the beach; just be aware that between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm food will not be available in the restaurants. Room was very good, except for two details: the restroom interiors did not match the room’s, they looked kind of left behind when the room was refurbished, the second detail, that was annoying, was that the restroom’s light switch was outside it and the light switch for the bathroom sink was in the bedroom area. The beach was beautiful, amazing colors in the ocean and smooth sand, the hotel has good beachfront and, like in all beaches in Mexico, you can freely walk by the ocean up as far as you want. Last, but not least, the thing I liked the most was the staff, all of them kind and ready to help you, especially the animation team; they are not only in charge of the activities in the pool and in the beach, they also perform a couple of shows by night that are not the regular ones, you must watch them.More
