“great vacation resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

The staff were excellent. Food and service was wonderful. We enjoyed the pool, the service and the staff were very accommodating. There is a surcharge for some items if not a member but not bad overall. Playa del Carmen was fun to see.

Service by staff alittle inconsistence. Very low pressure to buy time share. Great way to sell prospective buyers. All inclusive plan is ok you may have to ask for items at times. Information not volunteered by staff what is included and what is not. Resort adds surcharges to certain food items and drinks. No surcharge added if you not on all inclusive. I find that to be inconsistence with their welcome home and family attitude

This my third visit to the Royal Haciendas and my past visits were really great. However, they have changed their WiFi provider and now internet connections speeds are slower than I ever experienced in the old dial up days. I have talked to many others with the same complaint.

We have spoke with the manager of guest services and he said he would look into it. He also asked if the speed was better in the reception area and I found it was just as slow. I also ran some ping tests and found a loss of data packeys along with varying travel times and jitter.

It takes minutes to download a simple text email and many web pages will not load. In this connected age this type of service is unacceptable.

The Royal Haciendas Resort is a great place to relax; being in Playa Del Carmen is less stressful then being in the area of Cancun that seems very crowded. The pool and beach are clean and the resort offers fee Wi-Fi. Great atmosphere if you’re looking for a great place to relax. The only negative is the resort only has two restaurants. The rooms have a fully equipped kitchen and there is a small market on site, so you can stay in and cook. All of the staff is very friendly and helpful!

We extended our vacation after staying one week in Cancun at the Royal Islander and we went to the Royal Haciendas in Playa Del Carmen. The villas were spacious and comfortable. I was extremely happy that the pool bar was in the sun. This vacation recharges me so I can return to work with enough energy to last until my next vacation. I was able to sleep at night and take a nap during the day. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous. We are definitely going back.

The Royal Hacidendas is an amazing place. The resort is very well kept and the staff is helpful and courteous. The beach and pool area are wonderful and there are always chairs available. The villas were beautiful and well maintained. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is the place. If you are looking for a place, where there is exciting entertainment nightly, you might be disapointed. Because we spent all day in the sun, we were ready for bed early, but those who would rather party, would need to travel to Plya.

We are returning to RH in Feb 2013 because we had such a great stay a couple of years back. I have been reading the comments about the new all-inclusive status of this resort. I am going to remain optimistic because it was such a beautiful and well-run hotel. I do have to say that I am not expecting the atmosphere to be what you find in many all-inclusives...busy, touristy and somewhat tacky because the RH is really more geared for the vacationer who is not looking for all of the pomp and circumstance found at those other resorts but rather a relaxing and more subdued atmosphere which is what we are after. If we wanted nightclubs and over-the-top buffets we would not go here...we will again be traveling with 2 teens and they also enjoyed the quiet nature of this resort and we will again make short excursions to Playa for local cusine and shopping when we feel like it...again, to those looking for a carnival type atmosphere I don't think you will like it at RH but if you want a beautiful room, immaculate grounds and exellent service in a quieter hotel then I think you will not be dissapointed...I hope we will not be because our last trip there was so nice. I will post again after our stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in the "left" side of the resort if you are facing the ocean which I believe is...
