Just back from a 10 day travel package, and we have to say we really loved this place. I would recommend this place any time without hesitation. The staff was great, and always attentive to our needs. We found the food was great at the following restaurants: Italian, Mexican, La Selva and the Grill. We did not try the Tapas....

We choose this resort due to all wonderfull reviews and it did not dissapoint us. I did my homework and read a lot of reviews and also visited regularly the forum section at XPU-HA.

Rating a hotel is such a personal experience that it's impossible to ever agree on everything. But that's what makes the reviews interesting as you read a variety of perspectives. Here's my summary without trying to repeat all the other reviews. 1. Beach is second to none. Soft white sand, clear 84 degree aqua blue water. No need to rush...

Catalonia Royal Tulum (CRT) is a diamond in the rough as it has a lot of potential but falls short in several ways. It’s a small resort with a pristine beach. The staff is to be commended on all their hard work to make hotel guests happy and accommodate them as best as possible. The grounds are clean and everything...

The beach is amazing! There isn't much else on the beach so you can walk for ages without being bothered! The rooms are great, huge and very clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The drinks are great, premium liquor if you ask. Food was good, not amazing. The breakfast in the main restaurant was great. The steak...

We were very impressed with this vacation. We spent our anniversary there, and found the staff more than accomodating. They decorated our door and sent us an anniversary cake. The food was great and the service excellent.We would highly recommend this resort.

This place was amazing. We were just here for a week and we had a great time. We loved the service, food and drinks and the beach is breath-taking. We enjoyed walking to the beach every day through what felt like a rain forest. Animals greet you everywhere! We loved the beach and the pool. I was most impressed with...

My boyfriend and our two friends went to Hoteles Catalonia for the first time earlier June. It was the best vacation and stay we have ever had at a hotel.
