The Catalonia Playa Maroma is very well located, very close to Playa del Carmen (some place you really should check out) and in the other side, a little bit further, Cancun. Even I am young, and was traveling with 3 more single friends, we just had the best holidays we could ever have. The hotel is very good, we loved...

Playa Maroma is in a great position, between Playa del carmen & Cancun. You can reach both cities easly (playa is about 15$ by taxi from the hotel). Lots of rooms are very new, comfortable, clean and big enough. The strong value of this hotel is the very nice, spacious and clean beach. Believe me, it's the best beach amongst...

We stayed at this resort for 14 days in Jul 2008. This was our second visit to the Yucatan Peninsula. I'm giving this a "Okay "rating as this resort has many down sides but has the BEST beach I have come across. The sand was soft and no rocks to be seen. Therefore no snorkeling as there is no reef....

We were at the Catalonia for the week of June 23rd; this was my first trip abroad, and I was NOT disappointed! After reading many reviews before leaving for the resort, we definitely took some advice: if you don't get a "premium" room at first, UPGRADE!!! The 1st room we had was "okay", but had a mildewy smell and the...

We just returned from a one week stay at the Catalonia and I couldn't be happier. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous! The grounds are lush and well taken care of. It is truly a Mexican style property with bright colors and open areas. The food was very good in both the buffets and the Tio Pedro restaurant. The mediteranean restaurant...

This hotel is definitely not for Americans. I read a bunch of reviews before I went and they were mixed, some said it was fine, some said it was a little catered to Europeans. You get assigned a braclet to determine what country you are from. So other guest are constantly looking at your wrist deciding to say hello or...
