    I like almost everything about this hotel. Mexican style villas with very clean rooms, amazing nature and gardens. The tropical forest with all of the animals, and jungle style music playing on the background is amazing!.Every corner has something to look at. Food was good. “Be loved” restaurant the best. Grill terrible, not worth the wait, but all other restaurants and even buffet are great. Very good service, friendly staff. One of the best beaches in Mexico with lots of palms and shade areas. My only one complaint would be the AC, it’s very noisy and need an upgrade.

    Wonderful except for the mosquitoes!

    A wonderful 2 week family holiday with our children aged 2 and 5. Our room was clean, spacious and we loved the comfy bed and pillows. The hotel is spotless and has a gorgeous pool and beach location. The sand is very white and powder like. During our stay they were no issues with seaweed. We got up early to see the beautiful sunrise on the beach and it was a real highlight of our holiday. We enjoyed the food and our favourites were the Mexican and the Japanese. The buffet was always good. Special thanks to Margarita who made my breakfast omelette every day. Delicious! We found the staff really friendly and helpful. The only thing thing that was an issue for us was the number of mosquitoes. Despite repellants and precautions our whole family including the children were badly bitten every day. Guess this is due to the time of year as whilst on a trip and talking to others it seems mosquitoes were an issue in all of the hotels in the area. Another thing worth noting if you want to leave the hotel - taxis are expensive. The cost of the trips were also more than we expected. We visited Playa Del Carmen on a couple of occasions as well as Chichen Itza, Cozumel and beaches around Talum. Enjoyed and would recommend but be prepared for the cost!

    Beautiful Resort, Excellent Vacation!!

    My husband and I traveled to this resort Oct 6th 2019...All I can say is WOW!! We loved it! The staff are so amazing everywhere on the resort. Buffet is a buffet food was warm and good quality but the Al La Carts were fantastic! You don't need a reservation but early times filled up quick....Did not bother us. Always chairs available around the pool with umbrellas. Music played and the entertainment staff kept quests busy with aqua fit , bingo, games , volleyball, zumba..it was fun! Pool was clean, large and stayed open until 8pm which was nice..pool bar did close at 6pm. There are 2 food trucks around the pool area Hot dog and Sausage truck and a Taco truck...also a Creperie beside the pool area ...there was a Fresh Juice stand by the beach offereing fresh fruit smoothies and a coffee shop which had a variety of specialty coffee...amazing!!! Beach was the best I have seen..The beach was cleaned daily and the seaweed was not bad when we were there.. the seawater was warm and able to swim as the sand was so soft. Entertainment was really good....every night had a show which ended at 10:30 after the show the Disco would start...DJ was good but not to may people danced. The lobby had some soft music playing during day and evening but we were very disappointed that there was no 24hour snack bar....The lobby bar closes for alcohol at 11pm and you had to get drinks from the disco only until 2am...The lobby bar after 11pm only served cappuccino and coffee.... We love to sit late at night in the lobby but a few times in the late evening would have loved a snack or fruit and when we arrived back from an excursion arriving at 11:30 pm there was really nothing to snack on...hope the resort changes this because when alcohol is available until 2am if people need to eat something there should be snacks available. The rooms were very large and clean..cleaned everyday with fresh towels and our fridge was stocked with beer water and pop...The bed was really comfy but some may say outdated furniture and decor...It did not bother us at all but some reviews stated this. Overall the resort is amazing and we really enjoyed our stay...I would recommend to family and friends and one day may return...Thank you Catalonia!

    I cannot say enough about how awesome this resort is. The resort is beautiful and so well maintained, along with super clean rooms, fantastic food selection, awesome big pool. You will not find a more beautiful beach with baking flour super soft sand, no rocks, or seaweed at all !!! The entire staff right down to the grounds crew are the friendliest we have ever encountered anywhere by far. This place really spoils you and we will for sure be going back again next year.

    Not a lot to do if it rains. The fact that the bar didn't open until 11 am was upsetting. I am on vacation! It also closed at 11 pm and you had to go to the "club" to get a drink. However, they did bring some drinks while we were in the lobby.
