After over a dozen trips to Cancun I decided to explore Playa Del Carmen and enjoyed a fantastic week under the sun. The resort was excellent with 4 or 5 restaurants and poolside bars over an expansive design with lush foliage. If you have children there were facilities and separate pools for them to enjoy. NO CROWDS on the beach... More

We own Week 8 at the Royal Haciendas and haven't been able to travel here for a couple of years. I had been hearing horror stories about the All Inclusive packages the resort was offering to members and had become mandatory for guests other than members. As was explained, members used to fill up the resort to 80-85 percent capacity,... More

We stayed at Royal Haciendas the last 2 weeks of February. Beautiful resort. We rented from an owner, so the AI was optional. When checking in, they didn't mention it at all, so I asked - AI is $69.00 for a minimum of 4 days. We opted to do it for 4 days to get a feel for it, and... More

Our family- 2 parents and 2 boys- stayed at the Royal Haciendas in Feb 2015. I wanted to hire a professional photographer to do a photo shoot on their grounds & at the beach. Ocean Photography is located in the market, right next to the lobby- and they were fantastic!!! I do not know why the hotel does not advertise... More

We stayed 5 days in February 2015 and had a wonderful time. The resort/property/beach is very nice. Our room was very nice and clean. My only complaint with the room is that I booked and paid for an "ocean view" room, and you could barely see a little sliver of the ocean. Very disappointing. We had no problems getting a... More

Beautiful well manicured grounds. The grounds are spotless, seriously. The Pools were very nice. If you have small kids there is a wading pool depth that is perfect. This is also a great place if you just want to relax poolside as it wasn't very busy. Have a lap pool (seems like this is where the 65+ crowd hung out),... More

This is a beautiful ocean front time share where non-members can rent with all inclusive privileges. The villas have two bedrooms and a full kitchen. The second bedroom has a small kitchenette that can be locked-off as a separate unit called a deluxe junior suite. The beach is a great one and the pools are huge and heated (too hot... More
