Catalonia Riviera Maya Resort & Spa details

This place has five pools and seven restaurants, plus it’s right next to a great stretch of sand.

There’s a real castaway vibe here – thatch-roofed buildings peek out from in between palm trees. Plus, the complex opens out onto a white, sandy beach.

But what really sets this place apart is the pool scene – there are five in total. They’re all flanked by bars and spacious sun terraces, and some lead down to the sand.

Inside, meanwhile, bedrooms have a classic flavour. They pair oak and wrought-iron furniture with simple whitewashed walls and tiled floors. Each one comes with a furnished balcony, too. And in-room extras take the shape of cable TVs and air-conditioning.

On the dining front you’ve got the option of five à la carte restaurants, with menus from Mexico, Italy, Spain and Japan. The latter comes complete with teppanyaki tables. The buffet restaurant does a good range of international favourites. There’s also a creperie that does a great range of pancakes and milkshakes.
