This wonderful resort and area are quickly becoming the French Riviera of the western hemisphere. The Royal Tulum and the Riviera Maya are a combination of the best of what Mexico has to offer. The service is exceptional, the employees and locals are sincerely pleasant, the food is good (6 restaurants), and the mile-long beach is top notch. One caveat for those with back problems – the beds are über soft. During our 2-week stay, vacationers fluctuated at about 75% Europeans v. 25% North Americans, with Italians outnumbering everyone at about 2:1. It was interesting to see the two contrasting cultures collide on the beach: large, loud, laughing, overly textiled yet non-smoking Americans vs. svelte, quiet, reserve, barely textiled but smoking-like-a-chimney Europeans. The resort is conveniently located near Akulum Beach and the Mayan ruins of Tulum, so it is very easy (and safe) to jump on a collective van for $3-4 USD (one-way) and spend 3 hours at the ruins or snorkel with the turtles at Akulum Beach Reef. This is an adult-only resort, so those having problems with Speedo-type suits and topless beach sunbathers should probably stay at resorts that cater to children – and let the adults enjoy a mature vacation. We highly recommend that you grab your Spanish-Italian-English dictionaries and head to this resort for some European-style relaxation in the sun. Viva la Riviera Maya y el Royal Tulum.
