We recently returned from our fifth visit to the Royal Hideaway. As always the service was impeccable. Very quickly we were greeted by name and our very particular drink requests were known. Great care and attention was provided by Alexis and Isis at breakfast and lunch and Nicolas at dinner. Our waiter,Sr Ortiz (I hope I'm getting that right) at Asia was fantastic as well, Alejandra and Jose at Bar Allegria made sure our drinks were never empty. When our room was cleaned by Ariana there was not a speck of sand to be found. The beach was amazing as always even if the weather wasn't always in our favor. Those are just some of the reasons we have visited five times and are already planning our sixth! My only disappointments were two and minor: there was no acknowledgment of our anniversary as there has been in the past despite it being in the reservation and mentioned during check in; and our room request to be on the upper floor was not able to be accommodated. Overall not so significant that it would prevent me from returning to the Royal Hideaway for my sixth visit for it's fantastic beach, delicious food and drink and amazing service!

I recently (four weeks ago) spent a week at a resort near Royal Hideaway and, while I had a good time, I missed the slower and genteel atmosphere of RH. I love my grandkids ... but crying children are not something I wish to tolerate when I'm on vacation. Likewise, resorts that only offer outside dining (where there is no air conditioning) ... no matter how good the food is, when you have to use your napkin to mop the sweat off your brow, it's not going to be a good meal. Likewise, I don't need a large meal at night, and the food at RH is well-proportioned for the older crowd and always delicious. The resort is scheduled to reopen 11/1. I hope they're on time, as I have reservations for 11/6. I'm literally counting the days.

What a beautiful and relaxing place! I stayed with my husband and we absolutely loved it! The place is not huge , but has everything you need for vacation. The food was fantastic, we absolutely loved italian cuisine. They even have live music, witch was absolutely stunning. You can do excursions if you’d like to, or stay only on the resort. They have really amazing “entertainment team”, who takes care of all fun activities. Mercedes, Maggie, Carlos and Alfons were incredibly friendly and fun!!! You have that feeling that you know them for longest time. We played beach volleyball almost every day, rode bicycles with them, water aerobics and did other activities... It was so much fun! Everybody on this resort were very professional and tried to make your stay as perfect as could be. We met a lot if people who was coming back 5 or even 10 th time. That says a lot about the place. We definitely recommend this place, and we will be back! ❤️❤️❤️

Couldn't have asked for a better first-time experience. Every aspect of our stay exceeded expectations. Great location (short taxi ride to the city center), comfortable spacious rooms, excellent food, and wonderful staff! Special shout-out to Alfonso Montalvo from the activities department - very engaging and took the time to check in with us regularly ensuring we were having a great time! Genaro Ek took excellent care of us at the pool - always had a drink waiting for us without having to ask so definitely ask for him! Thank you to the entire Royal Hideaway staff for making our trip great. We will absolutely be back soon!

Fine dining isn't always the highlight of my vacation...but at Royal Hideaway Playacar it exceeded all my expectations. Ventanas Michelin Star chef Alejandro Sanchez's cooking inspired me to try new dishes. Every night was something new from duck meatballs to grilled octopus to Rosemary ice cream. Really?! Sanchez surprised us at lunch with a freshly caught rare 100 pound Blue fin tuna that he proceeded to filet before our eyes. It was to die for! His culinary ingenuity is beyond impressive. It is for that reason alone this will be the resort that i will revisit time and time again! The service is outstanding. Nicola s, Luis and Alexis are top notch. The beds are super comfortable. The maid service great too. Very clean. Lastly the beach is large and great for swimming. I cannot wait for the next trip!
