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.

fabulous vacation

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we were pampered! We didn't need or want for anything during our week there. The place is spotless. Food was fantastic. We ate in every restaurant on premises. The staff in every part of this resort, were on top of their responsibilities. From the Housekeeping staff to pool staff to entertainment staff. They all went or and above to ensure our god time!

Best All Inclusive

Can't wait to return. This was an amazing resort. Stayed from November 6 to the 14th. We receive excellent services from the registration to the check-out. The staff is amazing, always going out of their way to ensure that the guests have everything they need. We must of been asked 50 times a day if we needed anything additional. The food was fantastic and most of the time with no reservations for a la carte restaurants. We tried every restaurant with the exception of one that required additional $$$. No need to spend additional $$$ when the other restaurants were so good. Our room was great, in the back facing the private pool. It was quiet at that pool so we could have our quiet time and then move to the other two main swimming pool for the fun activities. Enjoyed the aqua classes, gym and zumba. We had rain for part of our holiday but the entertainment in the lobby, the comfortable room, the coffee house, the game room, etc, it really didn't matter. Would return to the resort in a heart beat! Big thanks to the amazing staff that make this place so great!

Just arrived & want to leave

Just arrived at Royal Playa Del Carmen, so far it's a pounding headache. Pool music with the bass travelling to the beach (which is not far from the pool area). Beach is very crowded. I'm all about the chill, waves, sun and beach. So far it's a whole lot of noise and wearing ear plugs to cancel it out (who wears earplugs on the beach lol)! Wrong vacation decision on my part. Hopefully things turn around; for one that deep bass music can get lost, so my earplugs can get lost as well! If you're looking for quiet relax beach vacation, go somewhere else.

Housekeeping Towel Art

This is a review only for the very talented Andrea who serviced our hotel room daily at The Royal Plays del Carmen. We are celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary and each day Andrea has created amazing sculptures from regular bath towels.

1st visit - Fantastic

Great location - loved the atmosphere - fun people without the craziness.Restaurants - so good. Pool is perfect - close to ocean - close to your rooms - everything is where it should be for a resort.Beach is the only thing that doesn't get both thumbs up.
