The hotel gym comes at a cost £5 per day! Food Shop is really expensive! We were looking forward to going on holiday and keeping up with the training in the gym. We booked a hotel with a good gym from the photos. When we got here we found out you are a walking ££ cash machine to this hotel.... More

I've been coming to the royal resorts since I was 9 months old. I love this place! The staff is wonderful and the setting is ideal. My husband and I celebrated a wonderful anniversary here this year and we cannot wait to comeback next year!

Been a time share owner since 1991 and have never been disappointed. Their facilities, rooms, service, restaurant food and staff have always been 100 percent great. Free wifi and 3 to 6 pm happy hour half price cocktails are a deal maker. This is a family with very large outdoor pools and a great beach site. Again this is a... More

Nice place, very quiet pool, unfortunatly old fashion, furnitures in the room are old, seems we are in the 80's. Restaurant is okay, location is excellent, in front of the beach. The positive point is that there is no noise, not loudy music like other hotels.

We traded our timeshare for Cancun and we were very pleased with our room and all the amenities. We had a 2BR that accommodated 2 couples nicely with adequate privacy for each couple. The resort is not 'all inclusive' and that was a real plus for us since we like to eat out and occasionally fix simple meals while we... More

We had a 2 bedroom unit with a kitchen, living room and balcony overlooking the ocean. It is a very large resort but that was never a problem. It offers multiple options for pools, drinks, entertainment, dinner, shopping, and the beach, white sand and turquoise ocean is spectacular. The property is very well maintained and the staff is very helpful,... More

I have stayed in the Royal Caribbean every year for the past 6 years and have never been disappointed in any way with the accommodations, location, service and the overall friendliness of the entire staff. These rooms are setup around a 2 bedroom with full kitchen concept that can sleep up to eight. The rooms are clean and well maintained... More

I will start with our trip from the airport. We scheduled a private shuttle for our family of 5 through Thomas More because the flight didn't arrive until 4:00 and didn't want to make a lot of stops. I gave the service a "Good" because check-in was really slow and there were only 2 people at the desk and around... More

We went to this hotel as a stop over and arrived at night. I awoke to find a resort with four massive pools and one of the bluest oceans I have ever seen right at our door step. This hotel is a good place to rest and recharge for a few days or to be used as a stop over.... More

We stayed at the hotel for five days and it was a very pleasant experience for my families vacation. I would stay again if I ever go back to Cancun. Check in was fairly easy although it did take about 25 minutes to complete the process. As other reviewers mentioned you do have to start a line of credit on... More
