It was our first visit to the Catalonia. Isabel from front desk was very kind to us and very helpful during the whole stay in the resort. The room was good, but because of the damp, we asked for a change, it was done. Restaurants don't work all the time, you had to wait all the time, you couldn't reserve. The Japanese restaurant didn't work at all...The buffet was the only place we'd been going with kids, but the food was disgusting for the last two days. The kids club is not full, no fun at this club except for playing on sand...probably never come back there again.

We had and unfortunate incident of something being stolen from our room. It wasn’t as much the violation of our privacy as much as the condescending and placating attitude of the guest services manager Asis. They don’t care about you and I wouldn’t stay here again

First of all we are ETC Gold Members of Catalonia Hotels, we’ve been in all Catalonia’s around Mexico and Dominican Republic, this is one of the best Catalonias, but yesterday when we were at the dinner, security stole $500+ cash from our ETC room safe! This is ridiculous! I am just shocked! Of course no one will get those money back to us, only excuses, I am just speechless! Never happened that in other Catalonia’s and different brand Resorts for years being traveling. Because of that I would not recommend this hotel, also due to this situation we are considering not to renew our membership with ETC anymore. So sad that they don’t take responsibility over that even tho there is so much evidence that security took those money, including pictures. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Dear Alex, The time you have taken to share your experience is appreciated, we regret the incident you describe having experienced. Certainly, this situation is exceptional, and it is for this reason that we are as concerned as you are. At the conclusion of our investigation, there was no indication that anyone was responsible for such an occurrence. It's important to note that all rooms are provided with a free safe deposit box for proper use, and according to the hotel's policies, the establishment is not responsible for losses outside the safe if there are no signs indicating the loss. However, upholding our commitment to the satisfaction of our guests, we have been informed that our General Management has reached an agreement beneficial to you, which, according to the record, you have shown and been satisfied with. Dear Alex, we truly regret what happened and your understanding regarding this event is appreciated, on our part, this experience will be taken as a learning experience for us. Our Guest Service Team, all the staff and the Management remain at your disposal. Best regards,

The stay at your hotel was pleasant. Many thanks for the clean rooms, for the abundance of fruits on the menu and delicious desserts, for the very friendly staff, for the always clean beach, for the well-groomed territory, for pleasant meetings with cute animals. Of course, there is something to strive for in terms of improving service, but in general, I really liked everything and would like to return. Thank you for a great stay!

To start, we have stayed at the Catalonia Royal Tulum 11 times, and thought a change would be good. We decided to stick with the Catalonia brand and try this hotel. Big mistake! We booked the "Superior Privileged" class, and were in room 5121. ROOM - Our room was not good. The deadbolt lock was broken and did not work at all; the screen to the balcony was completely missing; we ran the air conditioner full time and the room was never cool; the furnishings are very dated; the king mattress was old and made you feel like you were rolling downhill to the edges. You're given shampoo and soap, no conditioner, no lotion, no Kleenex in the room. The mini-fridge was not re-stocked until day 9 of our 11 day stay. Housekeeping was fine, but overall this was a budget room, nothing "luxury". SERVICE- Service ranged from absolutely awful (buffet restaurant) to passable (themed restaurants) to good (BLoved restaurant). Drink service at the beach was terrible. We would order and she would not come back with our drinks; or would bring the wrong drinks altogether. By the third day we just walked to the beach bar, it was easier and faster. Nobody was ever rude, just slow or looked lost. With only half the restaurants open each night (and also the fact the buffet was so bad) the wait times at the themed restaurants was long if you didn't get there early (as in a few minutes after opening). FOOD- Really bad, everywhere except the BLoved restaurant. Dished looked / tasted like what you would get from the freezer case at Walmart. Under-cooked chicken, tough steak, dishes not hot, etc. The only exception was the girl making omelets at breakfast, she was fantastic. GROUNDS- This was the one positive of the trip. The beach is fantastic. They are out daily cleaning it and the result is beautiful. The hotel grounds were also beautiful and well maintained. OTHER- We registered on their online app for our required Covid test. We showed up for our 9:20 appointment at 9:15 and waited over an hour. Being a many-time Catalonia customer, I periodically get promotional emails from the company. One of those was a message regarding the on-premises, free testing to all guests (which I printed out and brought with me). Of course, we were charged for the test despite the printed message I had. Overall we were very disappointed with the experience. After being spoiled at the Catalonia Royal Tulum this was a distinct step down. Lesson learned.
