Me my husband and adult son spent Christmas and New Years at the Catalonia. We had booked a privileged room and our son had a superior room so were in the Riviera section.
We loved our rooms, clean, spacious well located. The entertainment was awesome...many laughs....lots of talent. Good snorkeling. Not much of a beach but it was lovely to look at and it was very easy to find a place to get into the ocean bypassing the coral and you must remember ...no coral, no fish! The resort itself is very lush and beautiful.
The only thing that disappointed us was the buffet. It would have been nice to have turkey ,pork , beef or chicken carved fresh at dinner. Everything was in heating trays, also maybe pancakes or waffles made fresh at brekkie.This would definitely bump this resort up to a 41/2 * in our opinion. We didn't make it to the creperie as it opened at 5 and that was too close to when we had dinner (6pm). After dinner we were too full. The other a la cartes were fairly good. The wine was awful, both white and red however if you must have wine the white is almost palatable. Best to buy a bottle or pass having it at all.
We hired a driver and went to Coba and Ek Balam. Having visited Chichen Itza the year before as well as other ruins we absolutely loved Ek Balam the best. I highly recommend a visit. You won't be disappointed.
