We had a wonderful stay here. The room exceeded our expectation. Ocean front view is breathtaking. The staff are very nice and friendly. Front desk Theresa went above and beyond to help us solve our problem with "best day "travel agency. Membership staff, Cherry, gave us a lot of tips and help to get around on our first day in...

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Caribbean as a timeshare exchange during the week of 2/21 through 2/28. And although our 1 bedroom unit's decor appeared dated and a bit worn, it was very clean and comfortable. The daily maid service was exceptional. However, there was an obvious musty odor that hit us when we walked into the... More

The Royal Caribbean in Cancun is much like other Royal Resorts I have stayed at. They are gorgeous resorts with all the amenities, beautiful beach, beach bar, swimming pools, good location, but a bit dated. Our room was clean and reasonably comfortable. One minor complaint was that the sheets were a bit rough. I would have found them uncomfortable if... More

Hard to believe that they were cutting aluminum railings with electric saws, chiseling concrete and making eveyones' stay so disruptive. Ah yes, Aqua aerobics to the din of power saws and chisels. Unfortunately, we couldn't hear the instructor despite his best efforts. Oh, did I mention the scraping and painting they were doing in a main connecting corridor. Yeah, nothing... More

I stayed at this hotel with a couple of friends in January. The hotel is tired throughout and could really use some modernisation. However, it was peaceful, the rooms were very spacious, the kitchen well equipped and we really could not have asked for much more. Our room overlooked a beautiful stretch of beach and the balcony area with a... More

It has been a year since my last review if Royal Caribbean in Cancun. It is a 27 year old timeshare property that experienced new management last year. Our time in 2014 was a little heartbreaking under the new management. We returned again this year and found another management change with a positive effect. The Royals seem to almost be... More

I reallllly enjoyed my stay here! The rooms were much MUCH nicer than expected and the staff was very attentive. There's a tiny little bar on the beach which is part of the resort - I almost missed it - where I sat and chatted it up with the locals :) there's no music at the beach bar but if... More

We had a wonderful family vacation at the Royal Caribbean. Our room was pretty spacious and well maintained, with a beautiful view of the Caribbean. The wifi connection was pretty good and accessible from most of the property. The hotel had the best exchange rate we found in Cancun, although not as good as a travel credit card with no... More

Nice hotel but not much going on after 8 pm. Lots of senior citizens. Time share haven. Beach was beautiful, food not bad either. All charges to room no money exchanged except tips of course. You can take in any of the Royal hotels with you arm band nice for a change.

My wife and I traveled here with our 7 year old son. The vacation was fantastic. It is a short distance from the airport but will cost you about 45$ us if you put it on a credit card. There is only one cab company it appears that is allowed to work the airport. The cab ride back is half... More
