We stayed with our family of four for one night. We purchased our room on Orbitz and got a ocean front room at a very competitive price. I was concerned that they would try to put us in a non-ocean front room based on the price we paid but I was able to email chat with someone from the resort before we went to confirm that we were on the beach side. The level of communication was very nice and comforting.

When we arrived they assigned us to a room on the second floor. We asked for a room higher up to enjoy the views and they were able to switch us to a room on the fourth floor. The lady at the desk was very nice and accommodating. Since we were just staying for the night we opted out of using the bellboy service and we didn't bring up all of our luggage from the rental car. The lady at the front desk gave us a map to our room and we are reasonably savvy people but we got lost multiple times trying to find our room. It is a maze and the passages to the back buildings are not well identified.

The room was beautiful. The marble floors and furnishings are all very modern. My kids loved having their own twin beds. The view was beautiful but as others have mentioned the pirate ships do pass in front. They didn't bother us and the kids enjoyed watching them. We even heard fireworks at one point. It isn't a spring break place but it is definitely more lively than where we usually stay in quiet Akumal.

We stayed for the night because we arrived in the afternoon and were headed to Chichen Itza the next day. It was perfect for that purpose and we wished we had a couple more nights there although I'm not sure I would want to spend a whole week there. It was nothing against the resort, we just prefer smaller towns over the big bustling city of Cancun. Driving in Cancun is no joke!

The restaurant on the beach was nice but overpriced and had a limited selection but we pretty much expected that based on prior reviews. The next day we were able to enjoy the pools and beach even though we had already checked out. Check out is very early FYI, 10 am I think. But they had nice showers in the towel checkout room so it was not a problem. The pools were nice and warm.

Room Tip: Get a beach front unit.

This resort was part of a trade in Interval (now they are going RCI and all inclusive). If you trade into this resort you will be set up in a "trade only" unit (often with no beach view). Vincent was professional, caring and concerned about the logic with this and did his best to follow through with a decent view and great clean place to stay (he even followed up on check out by phone). Soleadad was our maid and extremely kind and considerate also. Raphael on check out at front desk was shaming and quite dismissive about concerns of over charges on my bill. He embarrassed not only himself but the resort when I asked about the charge I was to pay even though I signed a different amount.

This is as lovely resort and location (although the booming air conditioning going on and off unless you set in to freezing is not good) and the pirate ship leaving and coming every evening. There are also "guidelines" that you must follow and you will need to pay extra for the workout facilities (nicely maintained).

In 1985 we went to Vacation Club International ( VCI) for a week on the recommendation of our Travel Agent, never to return again. We were so happy there that we became members and have returned every year since. It is maintained to a better than new condition with beautiful grounds and updated Villas. The staff has become friends that we look forward to seeing every year. Though the name has changed a few times, it is still VCI to older owners, the taxi drivers and store keepers. We have signed up to be owners for the next 30 years and plan to be there for all of them. Our only concern is that the move toward "all inclussive" and opening it up to the open market could lead to destructive behavior with occupants who have no personal feelings for the care and upkeep. We just returned from 3 weeks at VCI and are making plans for next year already. There is no nicer Resort on the Island.

Room Tip: all rooms are good , facing one of the pools or the beach.

Celebrated our honeymoon here in August 2013. The whole place is fantastic. Staff are attentive and freindly, The place is clean and well kept. Our room was perfect. The food is amazing, with so much choice.

Night time entertainment was also very enjoyable.

My one gripe, is that although you are made to feel special. Virtually everyone else there is on their honeymoon. More than likely a testament to the perfection that is the Royal Cancun.

I am a member of the Royal Resorts family. Have been at other resorts and found the Royal Cancun to be head and shoulders above the rest. Friendly staff and very attentive. The prices on food at the restaurant can be a little pricey, but then again it is a resort ($27+- for a steak dinner for example). The on-site grocery store is well stocked if you want to cook at your unit rather than going out. Specialty drinks can run around $10 each, but are generous. Happy hour is from 3-6pm each day and drinks are than 2 for 1. The beach area is white sand and clean. The surf is very gentle as this stretch of the beach is protected by the long island (La Isla Mujaris) which acts as a protective barrier reaf. You wont struggle against large waves as you would at the other resorts down the shoreline.

Cancun Island has water treatment facilities, however each Royal resort has their own industrial sized water treatment/filtration systems on site and so the water is generally safe to drink (I still drink bottled water as a habit though).

Most units are 2 bedrooms and one bath. All flooring is mable tile and are very clean. All units have full kitchens with a full sized oven, frig, microwave, toaster, dishwasher and all of your utensils, plates and glassware. They were in the process of building a play center for younger kids in April of 2014. Close proximity to the city of Cancun and transportation is readily available either through the shuttle which goes from the Royal Cancun to other Royal resorts (Sands, Islander, Carribean and Captains Cove restaurant) or through the city bus which runs contantly and is really inexpensive 10 pesos or about $1 US. I recommend not renting a car. Cancun Isand is a string bean of an island with only one road.

Room Tip: Rooms with a B are at beach level which is convenient. Pool units are nice as there are service walks which traverse directly from the unit's back door to the pool apron and lounge chairs. You want an ocean facing unit. Lagoon facing units also face the busy street (can get loud).
