We spent our spring break at this wonderful hotel. We have stayed at other five star all inclusives, including Zoetry and Excellence Playa Mujeres, but Royal Hideaway is a new favorite due to its fantastic location--the beach is phenomenal, it is within walking distance to town, and there is a golf course across the street. We were also impressed with... More

It is a nice hotel, but not very lively. It is located close to Playa Del Carmen... so close that your view is one of the city at night. It was once a 5 diamands AAA hotel, but that recommandation vanished away in 2011. It a regular hotel... with very limited ressources. Food is cool at the resto bar. Hope... More

My boyfriend & I just returned from 6 days at Royal Hideaway, our second visit - we were there for 5 days last April. I honestly can't say enough great thinks about this resort...it is truly paradise, and there is not one thing I dislike about this place. The resort is beautiful, the ground are immaculate, and the beaches are... More

Every aspect was great. The hotel and beaches were beautiful and the staff was friendly. A special thanks to hector and Jose the tequila guy both exceeded my expectations. The entertainment and activities were second to none I highly recommend going here

I won't leave a long review as most things are covered in detail by others...But this was the BEST experience (5 star all inclusive) we have EVER been too (and that includes the couples resorts). From the moment we touched down in Cancun with a private car service to our hotel, thru our check in process with a glass of... More

For our first visit to Mexico we stayed at the Royal Hideaway for 11 nights at the end of March/Beginning of April. The rooms are in villas set out in beautifully landscaped tropical gardens. There are a couple of quiet pools in the gardens and 2 excellent pools by the beach. The beach has gorgeous white sand. The 5 restaurants... More

Working in the luxury travel industry, I am extremely selective and critical and none more so than when planning my own family break. We enjoyed 4 nights at The Royal Hideaway in April, having spent 8 nights at Dreams. Tulum. The prior was great but RH was outstanding! I was looking for an all inclusive option on a different scale,... More

Our 4th visit to the area, but 1st visit to the RHP. If you are in the 20-35 crowd and are out for a party, this is NOT the place for you. If you are in need of rest and relaxation, with beautiful grounds, amazing food and an incredible beach, you have found your place at RHP. Highlights: Building concierge... More

Nice place with great people. Hotel is good and food is also good. This is our second time here but will certainly be our last. We got tired of the pretentiousness of the place that really think that you need to be formal to be good. Don't you dare to use a shoe they may deem not satisfactory because they... More

Beautiful, quiet resort with a great beach. Excellent service. The food was quite good although I can't say excellent. The only concern that we had is with the dinner reservations. There is no buffet (except breakfast) and not all the restaurants are open every day. This creates some difficulty with trying to eat dinner when you want. Often the only... More
