The Catalonia Playa Maroma boasts a prime setting on a world-class beach, along with seven restaurants, three bars and an impressive pool scene.
This place gets its name from the long stretch of dove-white sand on its doorstep. Punta Maroma beach carpets the coast for five miles. It’s also a 25-minute taxi ride in the other direction to Playa del Carmen.
The property is cocooned by acres of mangrove forests. And it’s been designed to blend in with its tropical setting. Hacienda-style villas with terraces that look out over the grounds.
A huge pool has etched out a space between the greenery. It’s divided into sections for relaxing, activities and there’s a shallow area for little ones. And there’s a juice bar nearby, too.
It won’t take you long to reach the sands – the beach is just behind the pool. Here, you’ve got more sunbeds and a bar, plus one of the longest coral reefs in the world.
FOOD & DRINK
The restaurant count totals six here, including a buffet place with a wood-burning oven, and an à la carte Mexican. Lobster dinners* are available in all of them for a little extra.
For lighter meals, there’s an al fresco salad bar and a creperie.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Stay here and you’ll get a free introductory scuba diving lesson in the pool. You can also join in with aqua aerobics, archery and Latin dance classes, or football and tennis. And kids get their own club.
Snorkelling equipment and kayaks are available from the beach hut.
In the evenings, take your pick of three bars, then head to the theatre for live shows. If you’re really in the party mood, there’s a nightclub and a bar that’s open 24/7.
