Our Opinion

This is a great resort for couples looking for a romantic getaway. The property itself is incredible. Unlike other major resorts within the Riviera Maya strip, this one diverts away from the large style properties. All of the service staff are eager to please and are incredibly helpful and attentive. There are plenty of activities offered both during the day and night, so there is no shortage of things to do.

My favorite Resort in Mexico

The Royal is my favorite all-inclusive that I have stayed at. I've reviewed the resort before, but wanted to put in a new review to give credit to one of the resort staff: Carla from Sports & Entertainment spent well over an hour with me making bracelets to take back to my 3 little girls. She was awesome, stayed long after she was supposed to have closed up shop, but wanted to make sure I got all 3 bracelets done; it's people like her that are the reason why I've been back to this resort multiple times.

Another Amazing Stay

We returned to the Royal to stay for the second time after having an incredible experience the first and it was another amazing & wonderful anniversary spent here. We were greeted with some familiar faces from our first stay and some new faces. Our concierge was Adolfo and he was the best from the check in to our last day - the room we upgraded to was leaking due to the storm so he helped us out right away by switching our rooms for us as soon as possible. Also, the bellboy Hernando was extremely helpful as well with moving our luggage around to each room despite the rain. The next day, we noticed there was no DVD player in our room and Adolfo was extremely kind to have one requested and set up for us with no problem. For the 7 nights we stayed at the Royal, Adolfo also made sure our room was ready for us with the romantic turndown and some personalized decorations for my husband and I. As usual, the food was amazing at each and every restaurant the resort has to offer with incredible staff from the managers, chefs, hostesses, to waiters. My husband and I's personal favorite, however, would have to be Maria Maria thanks to Diego, Chef Pasto, Vincenle, Diana, Vicky, Leo, Eulisa, and Marcos. The Grand Maniner Souffle is a must here and part of the reason why I come back. Thank you to everyone at the Royal for making our stay pleasant and once again memorable. Even for a vacation, it felt like coming home with the welcome we got from all of the staff here. We will definitely be seeing everyone again next year.

Great place, Amazing staff

This is an adults only resort with five restaurants that are very good. My favorite was the sushi restaurant and the buffet. The staff is amazing, always making you feel welcome and accommodating. I loved hanging by the pool and the beach was beautiful.

Lots of shopping by the sea - unique destination

Lots of shopping and many others by the sea makes this a very unique destination. Plenty of restaurants and lodging.allows one to venture out without need of a vehicle. A cab ride would be sufficient for most other places.
