A Relaxing Experience

If you're looking for someplace to relax, enjoy the weather and water and catch up on some reading, then this the place for you. I was BORED out of my mind!!! The pool and beach were nice and the food was good but once night hits, there is nothing on the resort to enjoy yourself. Definitely a place to bring kids or elders.

NOT WHAT WAS ADVERTISED!!!

We arrive at the check in and there they inform us that out of the four hotels we were supposed to enjoy all inclusive, only two were available. The rest were not all inclusive only time shared for owners. When I showed them the print offer pay for 1 enjoy 4 the front desk manager told us it was a mistake!!! We could only dine at night with reservations in all the other ones which were either being remodeled or only had a bus running every two hours. We did go to dine at another one night and we didnt even have transportation to return after 10 pm. Knowing the transportation was so deficient we enjoyed this hotel only! There the service was OK, sometimes difficult because the guest has to sign/make tickets for everything only with room key!!!(making you feel more like an all exclusive resort guest). We felt that the offer was not honored , since we payed for the advantage of enyoing more of the other resorts and did not. We would like to know if there will be any compesation for this bad trip, since we had traveled to Cancun in April 2014 and never had encountered such problems.

Family vacation

We had a family vacation. So all adults. I wanted to share this. We have been traveling for the past 10+ yrs and I actually loved this hotel. It is Share Times hotel but they also have regular rooms for customers like us. Even though they are share times, they try to offer you membership and if you tell them you are not interested they don't bother you anymore. Unlike in the resort in Punta Cana Domincans, they were so rude after I told them we are not interested. So this resort was an excellent. They don't make a difference between share time members and regular customers. Rooms were spacious and we got beachfront room, all of us. (no extra charge). Maids came twice a day. Service excellent. They serve you even food on the beach. If you don't like what in buffet you can always order something else from the menu. Its not as hectic as usual resorts. They don't have night shows like other resorts but they provide you with free shuttle to the other resorts and restaurants that are all included for their guests. Location is perfect so is the beach. There is always enough lounge chairs on the beach and around the pool. Its 10 min walking distance from La Isla Mall. (so nice you should see it) 50 cents bus one way if u don't want to walk. I am not the person who likes to go to the same place twice but in Cancun or playa del carmen i would always use this resort. Overall excellent service.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

You should visit Plaza Caracol. It has attractions, night life, souvenirs and giant hard rock guitar in front of the hard rock caffe. Also, La Isla Mall its open concept of a mall that has river ride around like a italian gondola. So cool. Also snorkeling is awesome if u like that.

Royal sands and spa - all inclusive

The clue is in the name 'Royal'. The staff treated you like Royalty, nothing was too much for them to do for you. The hotel provided a bus service between all the Royal hotels although sometimes these were full and you had to use public transport which was very good.

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.

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.
