It ache's my heart to say this. As a Royal Resorts member for many years now I have always been impressed by Club International De Cancun where our Timeshare is (It's now called The Royal Cancun), however my experience at The Royal Sands was not in the same ballpark. First off, this place is not bad by any means. It's super nice, the staff are friendly, the rooms are awesome, and the beaches are nice. However, having visited many other resorts I am forced to compare them to this one.
First of all since I am not a member I did not have to do the All Inclusive, which is a very good thing. I calculated the costs for my guests and I and we would have spent over $1500 more and not received any benefit from it. Not to mention the food was OK, but it wasn't anything to rave about.
My biggest grips about this place was the size of the resort and the staff ratio based on the size. If I ordered a drink on the beach it would take up to 40 minutes to get it. If you wanted to close out it could easily take that much time as well. It made it difficult if you planned activities.
Some of the really good things about it are the pool bars, wavy beach, friendly staff, and awesome rooms.
