Guest reviews for Catalonia Privileged Maroma - All Inclusive

Everyone (13) Couples (2) Family (2)
4 out of 5
I was a bit skeptical about booking this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but decided to go for it, and I am glad I did. The hotel is not as big as others I've stayed in; this was a plus. It was easy to get from one place to another (i.e. lobby to pool/beach). Everything was within walking distance. Staff was super friendly and very hardworking. The "animation" team was fantastic! I loved their interaction with the guests. They definitely made our stay more fun. We also enjoyed the nightly shows and entertainment which were family-friendly. We stayed in building 4 which was close to the pool/beach. Our room was great - big and clean. The only downside: A/C was not working properly (that was a real bummer) and our room key kept deactivating. We, however, did not let this get to us. I had read a lot of negative reviews concerning the food, but I thought the food was great. We ate at the buffet most of the time. Lots of fresh fruits, which I happen to love. We also tried the Steakhouse and Bloved for dinner - no complaints! The grounds were clean and very "green" - lots of trees. The pool and beach were not as packed as I thought they would be. We ended up spending more time by the pool, but the beach was beautiful. My group consisted of 6 adults, 3 teenagers, and 3 children (ages 4 - 11); there was something for everyone. We all had a great time at the Catalonia and can't wait to go back.
