A Wonderful Honeymoon trip

The hotel was in a wonderful location and was surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The pools were awesome and the pool bar staff were great and very accommodating. The food at the Hacienda Sisal was great and the Mango Margaritas were out of this world. The only down fall was having to switch room after being there for two days however, the transition was very smooth and the staff was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this property to any of my friends and family.

Very nice resort

Very nice resort with amazing views in any room you stay in. The staff works hard to keep you happy in every respect. For the money this is one of best places we've stayed in Cancun and would go back.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

Our second stay at Royal Sands and enjoyed every minute. Beautiful beach, spotlessly clean, I felt tired out just watching the cleaning staff who just constantly seemed to be cleaning something 24 hours a day! Above all the bartenders and food servers give a fantastic and friendly service, they were all great and always smiling! Would highly recommend this resort. One small thing is that the bar closes fairly early at 11pm so not recommended for those who like to party a bit later

Very good experience

Very good 4star hotel. Food and drinks are good, but the best thing is you can go to anothers hotels and restaurants of the chain Royal. Hint: El Conquistador at The Royal Islanders. The best restaurant.

Quality vacation

The hotel is a very nice one and good value for money. The only thing that we didn't like much is big waves that prevented swimming in the sea throughout our stay. The big pools however, did good compensation.

Ok for a fun time.

This was with my wife on our 15 year anniversary, we have been to Cancun area 4 times. The beach area is great. The food was ok. The hotel looks a little basic and doesn't have a great floor plan. They make you switch rooms on Saturdays. This was annoying but we dealt with it. Overall I think anyone staying here would still enjoy their trip and have fun. Seems to be more kid friendly than others. I won't go back but it was still an acceptable location and hotel.
