Girls Week

Short mother/daughter 5 day week. Wish it had been longer. Rooms were comfy, grounds/common areas always clean, staff very friendly and helpful (especially Joanna). Food in main restaurant was ok, service was very good. Would definitely consider this resort for any future stays in Cancun.

Exceptional

Pros: Location, service, sleeping arrangement, off site restaurants, kids friendly, family oriented, cleanliness. Cons: Hotel is dead at night, drinks more options, buffet repetitive. I have been to Cancun 3 times, I stayed at ME, GR Solaris, and the Royal sands & Spa. @ The Royal Sands I was with my Son and this hotel is the best for family vacation. I stayed in one bedroom suite in the C block on the 6th floor with all inclusive option. There are a lot of activities for kids, the pool is large, divided in sections based on the kids' age. This hotel is family oriented, at night you can go to off site restaurants such as El conquistador, Captain's Cove, and another Italian Restaurant. Breakfast and Lunch, sometimes dinner theme at La veranda on site. Drinks are strong, unlimited could have had more options. The assigned concierge will push you to go to a time share presentation. I'd say go, because they give you $150 US (voucher) you can spend it on spa, gifts, ect. Although, if you're looking for fun at night, this is not for you. However, there is a sideline bar that offers Karaoke and drinks. To really enjoy it the way I did, one must rent a car. Otherwise, you'll be at the mercy of the shuttle which might be an inconvenience to those who like their freedom, it's a 30mntes wait time, I heard. Overall, this hotel is one of the best in Cancun,it offers The ultimate accommodation with kids (family). If you look at other hotels, they'll charge you extra for ocean view some with no terrace or balcony and their sleeping arrangements cannot come close to The Royal Sands. All rooms have ocean view with terrace or balcony, to me the best one is in the C block.

Stayed for five days. They provide a shuttle to down town. It almost always was filled to capacity. The first room we were given we couldn't get the door to open. The room we stayed in was large and comfortable.

Great Experience. Would return

The experience at the Royal Sands was excellent start to finish. The all inclusive option was well worth it. We ate at Hacienda Sisal, El Conquistador, and The Captains Cove(order the captain's shrimp) which were all very amazing eating experiences. The staff at the resort was very accommodating and almost over the top at times. I will be returning to this location in the future and would not stay at any other resort because they just do not compare.
