A beachfront location, thatched-roof rooms, and acres of greenery – the Catalonia Maya Riviera Resort & Spa offers a true taste of the tropics.
This beachfront property is haloed by tropical gardens. Among the greenery you’ve got five pools and seven restaurants, plus Caribbean-esque rooms dressed in warm terracotta and oak wood.
There’s a real castaway feel to the hotel. Thatched-roof buildings peek out from in between tall palm trees, and it all opens out onto a white, sandy beach.

Amazing & Memorable Stay
Thanks and appreciation must be paid to this hotel for such a memorable stay during the month of April 2015. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, it was packed full of exciting excursions, days relaxing around the pool and meeting some wonderful people in and around the hotel. The accommodation was decorated beautifully and gave a real Mexican/Caribbean feel to the place. The beds were extremely comfortable and our room serviced daily and cleaned to a very high standard. The grounds of the hotel were filled with lush green plantation and local wildlife, which gave the complex that natural feel and exactly what we look for. There is free in-room Wi-Fi as well as a room safe. The restaurant choice was pretty remarkable and the food equally amazing, there is so much choice as to which restaurant to visit and variety of food on offer. We also noticed it was always replenished with new, as soon as it began to run low. I cannot actually believe there are people moaning about this hotel. I'm glad I ignored other peopleâs opinions because we would have missed out on by far the best holiday we have ever had. We could not fault the hotel, service or any aspect of our stay with this hotel and for that we would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay. The people working at the hotel are extremely welcoming and polite, they really have some wonderful people working for them, including Javier from entertainment who has an infectious smile and is such a wonderful character and an asset to the hotel. This is great value for money and well worth a visit; we plan to return to the hotel next year, something we have never done before!More
My 21 yr old daughter and I stayed here 3 nights. We had a room directly in front of one of the swim up bars. We were fine with it but I think if my husband had been with us we'd of had to move due to the noise but for us it was fine. Bar did shut down fairly early but people continued to sit and drink and be loud. The buffets were mediocre, I can see how you'd get sick of it after a week or so but the restaurants were an option, we only got one on the house as our visit was short so we chose the Japanese place and loved it. A little surprised people in booty shorts and tank tops were allowed in as there was a dress code but I guess some get away with it while others can't. The Creperie was our favorite and the food there was awesome. Wish it'd of opened a little earlier in day though, not til 4. The beach was lovely and free snorkeling gear, towels and chairs. A shallow lagoon area to wade and snorkel also. Free hobbies cat ride was amazing. We were annoyed that people would put their towel on a chair in the wee hours of the morning and claim it for the day whether even in the pool or not. Typical rude hotel guest behavior I suppose. The drinks were weak but I guess you old ask for more booze in them. I almost thought I'd gotten an amazing tolerance until I got out to Puerto bar and realized they weren't strong enough in resort. That's another bonus if you leave front door of resort and walk 5 minutes your in the beautiful Puerto Aventuras and can choose from a few restaurants, swim with dolphins, book on catamaran trips, fishing trips, bars with entertainment, in a gated, safe community. The staff at this hotel was fabulous,Javi with the entertainment staff made our vacation extra special and made us laugh a lot. I would definitely return and just maybe ask for room on back of hotel for quieter stay but if you've come to party...who cares anyway right!More

I was very nervous about this hotel upon booking my trip because of all of the mixed reviews. Well I had every right to be. I'm going to start from the top. We got there and check in was long. They used paper reservations by last name off to the left when you arrive to check In. Took about a half hour to check in. The give you a fruity drink when you come in. Plus! We asked about getting one bed. Being that were a couple. They said they couldn't accommodate us. When we arrived to our room there was one with a king size bed being cleaned. The house keeping lady said it wasn't occupied. No dinner or lunch between four and six. So we had to eat at the snack bar. Terrible, terrible food. Late on that night were relaxing. We turn the tv on. UPGRADE NOW. They offer an upgraded service called "Privleged" you pay more a night. You get a suite and a different colored band. Giving you access to the restaurants as many nights as you want and Drinks in a glass. As opposed to plastic. Definitely a class thing in this place. Wouldn't recommend. And won't be returning.More
Ignore the negative reviews!
Ok, so to start with just ignore the negative reviews! Yes check in is a little slow and not the best if you've just come off a 10 hour flight BUT you're on holiday, at an amazing resort, it's not really all that bad is it! If you hate the food, you're WAY too picky! There is so much choice, breakfast is until 10:30 so you don't HAVE to be up stupidly early just to make sure you catch it. Then the snack bar opens, enough choice! Then there's the themed restaurants! We went twice to the Grill at Bambola, twice to the Italian and twice to the Japanese and all we're superb! We didn't make it to the Mexican or the Tapas as also went to the Buffet which is just fine and had a Mexican night there anyway. We have absolutely NO complaints about this hotel, the staff always make you feel welcome, the room was spot on and clean. Now, we were privileged guests so I guess this might make a difference as we had use of the Pure Chill out bar right at the far end of the resort with plenty of sun loungers, beds and beanbags and it was so quiet! (except from the odd few raucous, drunk and pretty obnoxious Americans, but hey.....just put your headphones in and drown them out! We also met some LOVELY Americans!) If you want pool games, drinking games and people shouting and screaming at the swim up bars then stay by the pools, if that's your kind of thing! Yes the beach isn't perfect but it's also not so bad, take some water shoes and you'll get out past the rocky bit and be on a nice sand bank. There's also a lovely little bay at the opposite end, go there if you want a paddle in crystal clear water. If you're able to, go Privileged.....it's so worth the extra. Absolutely LOVED this hotel and we will 100% be going back. It's what you make of it at the end of the day, if you're a really finicky, picky person then pay the extra and go to another 5 star hotel, simple! But I wouldn't want to go anywhere else now....... Thanks Catalonia for a holiday of a lifetime! :)More

Went for our honey moon. All inclusive resort, went to their 5 restaurant to eat, Mexican, Spain, Japanese, American, and Grill. Beach is soooooo clean, room service very professional, always something new to do, many activities for the vacationists. Close to Cenote and Chichenitza. ** SAFE IN THE ROOM TO SAVE MY MONEY! Very good choice because of the quality, cost, and beauty.More
