This place is as good as if not better than the JW Marriott in Cancun. I have stayed 3 times at the RH and hits the "sweet spot" for vacationing. Private beach, perfectly manicured property, pools and lounge furniture everywhere...dive facilities, incredible service, and a short taxi/shuttle to downtown Playa for some fun and action...and then catch the ferry to...

Snorkel, Scuba dive on great reefs. The beach is beautiful. We dance and sing and enjoy a week of complete relaxation. Playa Del Carmen is just a... More

I had a chance to visit Playa Del Carmen about 8 years ago. At that time, there wasn't much there so I did not know what to expect. When I arrived at the Royal Haciendas, I was greeted by pleasant and helpful staff. Its like they know people journey far and are prepared to make your stay great from the... More

How can OK weather be enjoyable? When you enjoy so much the place you are staying at! During our week at Royal Haciendas we had a couple of cloudy/rainy days. It didn't matter at all to us. Treating ourselves at the spa, or simply enjoying the sound of the rain from the balcony takes care of it. The grounds are... More

Let's start with the pros. The property is great for families, tons of activities for the kids and more pools and beach than you can use. Food in the buffet restaurant is pretty good. Not a huge fan of the others on the property. Service in the pool areas is adequate. Cons....mattresses and sheets are sub par and in need... More

This was our third trip to Royal Haciendas and every trip has been perfect. The resort is clean, well maintained and has all the amenities you need. The food in the restaurants is fresh and very good. The drink specials are abundant and well poured and creative.

We just got back from a week stay at the Royal Haciendas, which we booked based on the positive reviews on this site and Expedia. Frankly, I have to say I'm surprised the reviews were so overwhelmingly positive, as our general review was that this place was just ok, compared to the other resorts we've stayed at before. The hotel... More
