A beachfront location, thatched-roof rooms, and acres of greenery – the Catalonia Maya Riviera Resort & Spa offers a true taste of the tropics.
This beachfront property is haloed by tropical gardens. Among the greenery you’ve got five pools and seven restaurants, plus Caribbean-esque rooms dressed in warm terracotta and oak wood.
There’s a real castaway feel to the hotel. Thatched-roof buildings peek out from in between tall palm trees, and it all opens out onto a white, sandy beach.
There are five swimming pools to choose from. They’re flanked by gardens, cocktail bars, and spacious sun terraces, and some lead all the way down to the sand.
Little ones have two paddling pools all to themselves.
FOOD & DRINK
The à la carte restaurants serve up Mexican, Italian, Spanish and Japanese cuisine. The latter comes complete with teppanyaki tables.
The buffet restaurant does a good range of international favourites, and has a DIY Bloody Mary station. There’s also a creperie that offers pancakes and frothy milkshakes.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
You’ll find a tennis court to practice your back hand on. Children, meanwhile, have a club for daytime games and arts and crafts.
The lively night-time line-up includes shows, local dancing, and themed evenings. Late nights out are easy to come by in nearby 5th Avenue – it’s studded with famous clubs like Coco Bongo.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
Hydrotherapy showers, hot tubs, and a relaxation area with organic teas and juices are just some of the spa’s* highlights. The treatment list is long, and includes rejuvenating massages and skin-softening body wraps.
These rooms all have air-conditioning, a TV and either a balcony or terrace. Doubles have a garden view or for a bit more try a superior double with a sea view. Pick a privilege suite and you're in for a treat - there's access to La Palapa lounge, a concierge service, discounts and more. Honeymoon privilege doubles are all about romance - you'll have all the privilege benefits plus extras including a romantic dinner and a couple's massage.
