Was a nice low key place. Kind of gets quiet early with the only bar closing at 11pm, if that is your thing then awesome. The beach is nice but not a lot of beach activities based out of the resort, usually have to travel to other resorts. The grounds are well kept and clean, staff is nice. Room service...

The location was perfect and probably the nicest place on the entire strip. Definitely the best beach; with service staff on the beach too. We managed to have a suite with a huge, shared balcony (3rd floor in phase I). We were able to have our entire family on our balcony one evening while we sat around and smoked Cuban...

The facilities were fantastic and the employees were outstanding. Special recognition of USA Thanksgiving was appreciated. Loved time on our spacious veranda with special ocean views. We used the entire villa both sides A and B which allowed for privacy and family times together.

if you are looking for a nice quite vacation this is not the place to go to. used to be but not anymore. Its a shame because the location is awesome and the beach is great. Plan to get out and put towels on a chair by 7 am as the guests go out and stake everything out very early.

They make everything to make...

Beautiful beach and pools, delicious meals, very friendly and accommodating staff. My friend and I had a wonderful time laying on the beach or by the pool with wonderfully friendly staff serving us cocktails and delicious snacks. The restaurants offered something for everyone!

The room we got was more than amazing. We had a villa opening straight to the beach and we loved it, it was spacious and extremely clean. We'd like to thank Maria Ponce who was taking care of our room so that it's always very clean and well stocked. The buffet in the hotel we loved, especially the Caribbean night...

We are now departing The Royal Sands in Cancun, this is one of our greatest experiences in all inclusive resorts. The price offered an i credible value for your money, the staff is friendly and helpful, and couldn't be happier with the cleanness of the place.

This was our first visit to the Royal Sands and it was outstanding. Resort was beautiful, very clean and the staff was friendly. Our room was very spacious, with comfortable beds and spectacular ocean view. Enjoyed the ability to utilize the other Royal resorts and amenities. Many restaurant choices with high quality food.
