LONG, but Thorough review. We stayed at the Catalonia Playa Maroma 7 nights October 18th-25th. We were also married at the resort. We chose the resort after visiting that Maroma Paradise Beach Marina (a 20min walk down the beach) on a previous trip and being blown away by the beach. We knew that this was a predominantly Italian resort, but...

Looks can be decieving, the place is a dump. There is only one place to eat and it reminds me of a cafeteria from college. We wouldn't feed this food to the homeless in the U.S. for we wounldn't want them to get as sick as we did. There is no room service, and no mini-bar. The rooms were dirty,...

Don't go there! This a friend advice, trust me. The hotel should be a 3 stars not 4 stars semi-luxe. Needs urgent refurbishment, the food is tasteless and the service was bad. The pool is too litle for that kind of hotel and everything looks old. The rooms were so bad that in 2 nights we've stayed there we were...

We have been to Cancun and found it great but pretty busy, so tried Mayan Riviera. My husband had vacation dollars to spend, and when we found out there was a resort in Mexico catering to Italians, we were so excited - our 2 favorite vacations ever combined! We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Although I...
