Our stay was very relaxing and the resort met or exceeded all of our needs. Clean soft sandy beaches. The pool areas were clean and plenty of chairs to lay and soak up the sun. The staff at the resort seem to go out of their way to make sure your stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Olivia... More

Good food. Every day there is different theme. Monday Caribbean theme was the best for me. 2 Huge pools are a big plus. Also, they have sister restaurants which are walkable distances. Beach is clean with soft sand. Only -ve is that there are no evening shows.

We spent around a week at this resort and we were in general impressed by it. Almost every rooms got a ocean view and it was super relaxing to sit on the balcony to enjoy the view. The housekeeping was top-notch as the room was nearly spotless. The restaurants within the all-inclusive package were okay. I would say the best... More

This all inclusive resort makes you feel like you are at your own apartment. I just couldn't tell if I was in Mexico or Santo Domingo or in the Bahamas, because it is large and very organized and has no taste of Mexico anywhere. The resort is very big and we stayed here at the beginning and then at the... More

This was our 3rd trip to the Royal Sands Resort. It gets better every year. Rooms are spacious and immaculate, beach is beautiful and well maintained, food is plentiful and well prepared and the staff is so impressive. I would like to give special thanks to Patricio who was at the new beach bar the week we visited. I've never... More

We had two adult couples, the two bedroom has a master and a "lock off with two double beds. There is a full kitchen with accessories (utensils,etc) and in the living area two Murphy beds which we have used when kids were in tow in the past. There is a market that is 10-15% higher than larger grocery stores, a... More

My family and I, which included 2 teenaged boys and an 8 year old girl just returned from 12 days at the Royal Sands resort. We had a wonderful time and it was just what we needed. We were at the resort during spring break and did not have any problems what so ever with rowdy spring breakers. The resort... More

I stayed here Semana Santa (week before Easter 4/5/15) which is a very busy week in Cancun. This was my first time at Royal Sands and I loved it. I've been to Cancun many times and didn't realize this was an option as I always knew it to be timeshare. I was very happy I chose this hotel. It was... More

I didn't realise that this was a time share hotel until I went to write this review. The room was well laid out and immacultly clean. Air conditioning was excellent. The outstanding part was the hotel pool bar restaurant. The best fillet steak I've ever had and the services as just outstanding. This hotel also has a very secure feel.... More
