It was a nice relaxing clean spa. Both times Ive been the massages were average. The deep tissye feels like a Swedish massage. They dont get the deep tissues at all. Expensive !

I got a deep tissue massage! Loved it and great friendly staff. The spa is nice, clean and relaxing. The entrance is outside and around but not far from the main entrance at all. I def recommend going.

I enjoy working out in their gym area. Excellent weight machines and free weights. It is rarely crowded. There is a locker room with towels, showers, saunas, and a whirlpool.

Couples massage for 1 hour. The masseures were peaceful and polite. The premises are beyond words beautiful. Top notch place! They provide robes and slippers, you can sit in the jacuzzi or just lay back and sip tea.

Having a Massage Envy membership makes it difficult to justify paying more for the spa here, but then I remember than the masseuses are differently-trained than they are at home and give a more clinical experience...more on...

This was my third visit to the Spa at the Royal Sands. An hour deep tissue massage is $130. I have wonderful therapists at Massage Envy and the same massage is $59.99. I realize you pay for the experience. But, it's just not worth it. This time, I wasn't escorted to the very small, one and only changing room with... More

The Sands is our top Cancun choice. Most resorts are all inclusive, but the Sands gives members the choice of all inclusive or not. We find that we can eat and drink all we want without the all inclusive as cheaply as at home. There is a good variety at the Varanda, where one can choose either the nightly theme... More

WOW! It was the best massage I ever had. Definitely recommend visiting the spa even for just the "water" therapeutic portion. Wonderful place to relax . . . great for a rainy day!
