I get to totally relax, workout 3 times a day, go into the most beautiful water I have ever seen, karaoke, have a drink in the pool, and eat fabulous food with a staff of friendly people. I have even made new friends that I keep in touch with.

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Sands for our first anniversary and absolutely loved it. They have great free events on site and the all inclusive is so worth it. The only down side is the rooms weren't that up to date. But you shouldn't really be spending all that time in the room.

I had a amazing time at this Resort. The staff was all very friendly and i can say i made some great friends at the Resort. The bartender Jose Patricio Moo was by far the best bartender I have ever had. He made sure we were taken care of and made it seem like we have been friends for years.... More
