We saw mixed reviews about this place, but were able to get good flights (round trip) and 6 nights in a "luxury ocean view" room, all inclusive for $3200.
We've stayed at other all inclusive places in Cabo San Lucas and Jamaica and Cabo are apples and oranges. Jamaican people are SO nice, all smiles, always laid back, and happy-- they are not 'tip motivated' people which is nice since you're already paying an all inclusive price, however, unlike Cabo (very 'tip motivated') the service is...laid back. Not bad, just laid back. Royalton is not a 'get you smashed' kind of place either. The liquor is not top shelf at the pool bar (only if you do diamond club and go to the private bar at the beach for the diamond club) the drinks are frozen and reallly sweet. You can get beer and mixed drinks, but again the liquor is bad and weak. Since it was our honeymoon, it did the trick, but if we went with a group I could see how it would be hard to get into 'party mode'. They have a beautiful beach, awesome pools (kids, family, adult) water slides, sports bar with food and drinks and nightly entertainment. The food is just not that great (except the pizza and the jerk chicken at the beach everyday!) But again, the people and scenery are SO nice that it makes up for it. if you're looking to get wasted and fist pump, this is not the place. If you're looking for a good value with prime views, fun drinks, and decent food... this is the place. I heard horror stories about rooms being bad and moldy, but we lucked out, we checked in right away and it was a great room. Again, they are SO nice and the scenery is so great that you just get a drink and go to the pool and the beach while they work it out!
