Amazing all around

Everything was great here. Great service, great food, great amenities. Had a nice mix of young, old, couples and families. Most staff spoke good English which was helpful because our Spanish was lacking. Can't wait to go back.

Incredible family vacation

The room was very nice and large, the staff were all amazingly nice. The food was simple yet very tasty and buffet mis of the time, ideal for picky little ones. Not a party place, very family oriented. Shopping malls at walking distance.

Activities.

The hotel was very nice and the food was wonderful. The only complaint would be the nightlife. The pool bars close at 6 and the sports bar was empty every night. There really is nothing to do past 6 or 7 pm. It's great for small children because it's quiet at night, which I liked that. Peaceful. I would return.

Family vacation

Our 1st time in Cancun, had a little trouble/time waste at the airport due to people stopped us trying to sale the tour. Although they are very friendly. Once we get out, everything else was smooth, check-in was fast, met with hotel conceirge, who helped plan our trip, suggested place to go/eat, very nice and friendly. Room is extra clean, beautiful views. Drink and food were very tasty and non stop. Their services are excellent from pool to beach and to our room. we are hope to come back again.

Relaxing Getaway for Couples or Families

My wife and I visited The Royal Sands for our 10th wedding anniversary. We made plans, before we left, to bring our kids back in a couple years and enjoy a week there as a family, as they offered so many great activities for families. We enjoyed some long days just laying on the beach or around the pool. Our room was in the 2nd Phase of the property, and we honestly loved how it was a more intimate setting with less people. On the third day of our vacation, we took part in the sales presentation at Royal Haciendas. The presentation was informative and interesting, though we weren't in any place to purchase anything yet in our lives. But it's nice to know how it works. We did not enjoy the Royal Haciendas or the Riviera Maya area nearly as much as Cancun. We liked the developed area in Cancun with other stuff within walking distance. Royal Haciendas did feature nicer suite decor and furniture, as it's newer. We would like to see Royal Sands upgrade their room decor to a similar standard. We used the All-Inclusive package, which we're certain we used to our advantage. Members pay $70/day for an all-inclusive day - breakfast buffet for two would be $15 alone. Throw in drinks, lunch and dinner, and even room service for a late-night snack, and you get the most for your money. They offered traditional Mexican pottery painting for a small extra cost ($10-30/piece, depending on what you choose). Those are our favorite souvenirs and made great gifts because we actually painted them ourselves - the booth attendant finalizes the painting, adds some flare, gloss, and finishes them so they look amazing. The sports desk had about anything you need, we could swap out beach towels as often as we liked...it was a very relaxing week. Book your transfer ahead of time to and from the resort. We used Super Shuttle for $42 total roundtrip for two. We ended up with our own personal shuttle back to the airport on our final day. It was great. The staff at Royal Sands is fantastic. They're gracious, a lot of fun, and made our stay even better.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Skip the Coral N egro Mercado market, unless you want to be hounded repeatedly to buy cheap, American stereotypical garbage. Harley-Davidson t-shirts that say Cancun, Mexico on them, for example. Go to any souvenir shop though and buy some real vanilla!

Beautiful location

The location and beach were awesome. The staff was very helpful and friendly. However there were Not enough places to eat for an all inclusive. Also there were no activities or entertainment that are usually part of all inclusive resorts. The rooms were clean but smelled. For the price, it was well worth it.
