This was our first vacation to Mexico for our family and it couldn’t have been any better. We enjoyed being out of the mainstream party city of Cancun and we (including 2 teenagers of 15 & 16) really enjoyed the atmosphere of Playa del Carmen’s surroundings. We had a 4th floor Villa Penthouse in bldg. G (447) for the week;... More

The hotel was ok the food was perfect, the beds sucks. The booking agency was the worst in the world. DO not use Expieda!!!!!!! the customer service of Expieda is the worst. They misrepresented this hotel. The suite (kitchenette) is a small room that is a bed room to a villa. The beach is very dirty and you are not... More

My wife and I are Marriott Horizons owners and she exchanged for the Royal Haciendas through Interval International. We have had our eye on this hotel for a few years after staying at a couple of Royal Resorts locations in Cancun. My wife was thrilled to see the Royal Haciendas on the exchange list. Since it was an exchange we... More

This is our 3rd. trip to Royal Haciendas and each one has been a delight. We used the all inclusive and felt that the value was excellant, since we took advantage of all the resort had to offer. The service, as usual, was outstanding; resort grounds and rooms are first class all the way. We would never have a question... More

This place was awesome! Service was excellent and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and spacious - my friends and I shared the 1 bedroom/1 bath "half-villas" with kitchenette (we booked two rooms with 2 persons/room - we are not villa owners but booked the trip through a third party website). We did the Refine... More

Concierge - We initiated all of the contact we had with our concierge. This is extremely different than in the past when our concierge would visit our villa upon arrival and check in with us throughout our stay. She was nice but we wouldn't have known that if we hadn't contacted her ourselves. We're disappointed in the decline in service... More
