I was at the Royal Sands this week. It was a great value. They gave us an awesome room on the 1st floor. The balcony is spacious and great for dining or playing games. They have a full kitchen and living/dining area.. it really is comfortable! I go to Cancun a lot and I will definitely be back here. They... More

We go to The Royal Sands every year, and we love it. My children went skydiving when they were ages 7 and 11 in Playa del Carmen, and repeated this year at 18 and 22. You read that correctly, they were little and we went full circle. I have jumped at least 10 times as well and it is worth... More

We come to the Royal Sands every year for two weeks. The resort is well maintained with lovely pools and beach. We especially enjoy all the activities and the opportunities to meet other guests. There is a nice little ruins in front of the museum across from Captain's Cove restaurant. The museum is also excellent. Further down the road toward... More

This is a great vacation spot. Our suite was large and comfortable and had so many included amenities we lost count. We were able to book adventures or enjoy a quite evening in. We were not members but we were certainly treated like it. There is something here for all ages but older children were able to participate in more... More

This was our first time to Cancun and also to participate in the all inclusive. The Royal Sands staff definitely take care of their visitors. The rooms are clean, the property is very pretty and all the staff is readily available to make your stay enjoyable. The beaches were groomed, there are plenty of chairs around the pool and on...

I have stayed at this hotel 2 times and both times it was awesome. The resort is in a great location and very close to lots of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. The rooms and around the resort is very clean.

My sister, a best friend and I recently stayed at this resort in Cancun. We had never stayed at an all-inclusive before and found it to be a wonderful experience, especially at this line of resorts. We were not limited to just this hotel but could go to three other of their resorts and the all-inclusive was honored. The restaurants... More

My husband and I always look forward to "Coming Home" to The Royal Sands. The staff is always willing to go out of their way to make your stay exceptional. Every villa has a wonderful ocean view with spectacular sunrises. Our concierge, Karina helped us on several occasions with reservations and outings. Since we spend most of our time at... More

I reviewed the resort in March based on a family vacation. We just returned from a couples retreat (50th Birthday) and had equally a wonderful time! The staff continued to demonstrate exemplary service and the food choices were fresh (though not too many choices). The offsite restaurant fare delivered magnificently and accommodated our every whim (they make a habanero sauce... More
