CAT Riviera Maya or CAT Playa Maroma

Someone suggested that I post in this forum for more info (Thanks Girl)

Which should we consider?

Can you share your knowledge on both, please. Size, food, best beach, rooms, oceanfront, distance from airport, closest to town and whatever else you think is amazing. TYIA :)

They are both smaller sized resorts but there is no comparison as far as the beach goes. Cat Maroma wins hands down. Food and service is similar at both but Cat Maroma is much closer to the airport. Cat Maroma is closer to Playa del Carmen but Cat Riviera Maya is in the gated community of Puerto Adventuras. Cat Riviera Maya probably has newer rooms overall but Cat Maroma's rooms are clean and comfortable.

I haven't been to CAT Maroma to compare but I can tell you that some posters on TA have said that the CAT Maya is 1 hr and 20 min. from the airport but it's only one hour and it's a very comfortable and interesting drive on a big, comfy bus!
