We are owners of this timeshare and have used it from the very opening. While the vegetation has matured over the years the overall expectation has begun to wane. The Royal Mayan was able to look "new" even after it's run of 30 yrs. So too the other Royals; Caribbean, Islander and Sands. We waited the 1st two years for the Haciendas to "catch up" but alas, I don't believe it will ever equal the excellence of the others. The good parts are very good: the units, the layout, the beach area and service. The downside is that it's getting too "young" for this old guy. Music is electronically contrived and the "teams" want everyone to get up and scream...not my style. But morning, evening and many parts during the day are close to excellent for sun-lovers, readers and ear-phone users. We prepare most of our meals inside...I don't find the restaurants that good after the initial meals...and they don't seem to be worth the cost...the convenience perhaps; but it's a serious decision we make. The classy Los Morales has improved and is not cheap, but it is good. The Market suffices for our needs and we don't even visit WalMart anymore. We will come back, but the old homestead is getting dowdy. Some of us can't wait until the very high end Royal Residences is completed...then we may be able to regain the focus of management once again on the Hacienda's.
