Apparently if you are an owner, you get treated completely different than a visitor/renter; however, aren't all visitors/renters POTENTIAL owners? The rooms are ok, you could tell it's an older place and they don't always clean everything! Several mornings found our bath towels were still damp/wet, what did they do, just pick them up off the floor and roll them... More

We have stayed at the Royal Caribbean for the past four years with friends. You can't beat the service, always top shelf. The restaurant, Tradewinds, has really developed into a great spot for any dining, good food, great waiters, and reasonably priced. The beach is one of a kind, soft white granular sand and turquoise waters. This is a must... More

The rooms are ok, but that's all. The service is terrible , the staff seems to be trained to upset guests. I arrived and the hotel was empty. It was noon, and the reception guy didn't even want to check if there were any available rooms. I guess that when its crazy busy, that's the best policy, but in an... More

There is a patio off master bedroom and off living room, wonderful ocean view! The staff is wonderful, the unit was in great condition and equipped with everything we... More

We recently returned from a week stay at the Royal Caribbean in Cancun. It was one of the nicest resorts we have been to! Everything was wonderful. Our concierge, Antonio, was the best! Pablo in the timeshare office was very thorough and professional. It was not high pressure, and under different circumstances we might have made a purchase. Loved the... More

I stayed here Oct 2014 with my BF and his 2 teenage sons. We didn't have the entire villa, but the side with one bedroom and 2 murphy beds in the living room. It was a very spacious room and we had more than enough room for the 4 of us. We had a wonderful balcony that we could sit... More

We have stayed at the Royal Caribbean for the past several years. We have always been impressed with the service at the resort, from the bellboy to front desk staff to the waiters at the restaurants. Our particular villa offers spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea. The villa is very comfortable and offers 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We also... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Royal Carribean. The view from my massive 11th floor room was unbeatable. It is not really a five star hotel but it is pretty close. Personally I am not that into this type of resort hotel but its all you get in Cancun. For what it is though I really liked it. The... More
