Luxury but disappointing

Arrived at 1pm as we was attending a wedding to which we had to be seated at 4.30. Was advised could not have room until after 3.30. Was a rush getting ready and had no chance to look at room. Got back at 1pm to go straight to sleep. When waking up. Nothing in the room worked. Ie bath. Hot tub and tv. Service is a nightmare as constantly waiting and we are made to feel very unwelcome. When we complained, staff just shrugged their shoulders.

Amazing - Simply the bes

This hotel is hands down one of the best we've ever stayed in. Everything from the food, to staff and even the room were all A1.The all inclusive includes fillet steak, king prawns and lobster! We eaten at the steak house, Zen, The Italian and the buffet. All were excellent.

Not in Cancun

While it's called cancun it's actually in puerto morales, a 30 min drive to cancun. A taxi is 40usd into cancun and ard 25usd back to hotel.In comparison to other similar hotels in area this place has many little details that you'd expect in a 5 star. Extensive liquor options available at some bars, huge buffet with anything u could ever think of, amazing Splash pad for kids. However it also falls short in for some reason. Service is good, not amazing. Concierge service located in building was nice enough but he really seemed more interested in signing us up for excursions, or timeshare presentation.Gym was ok, but finding a price of equipment proved to be a challenge during early morning or midday visits, also the lighting in free weight area is low like a bar or night club.A positive during this visit resort was not overcrowded finding a spot on beach or ard pool was never an issue, lots of room and space.Steakhouse has amazing steak, the sides are avg at best though; frites with sage truffle oil and Parmesan was frites with Parmesan, nothing more. Room service was had once and was not ordered again. A 25-35 min wait time turned into just over an hour for a burger and chicken fingers, no fries were ate as they were literally ice cold.Gift shop is a gouge. Bought 2 mexican cigars for 35usd. Then they wanted 17usd for cheap cigar cutter and 7usd for lighter. I know hotel prices are cheaper but stuff like this boils my blood.Beach is nice, I don't mined seaweed so that wasn't as issue for me. There are no adjacent resorts here so if u step outside resorts beachfront for walk the beach is covered with litter and garbage, sad really.Overall nice resort, good food. But not a 5 star to me. It's all in perspective to what you've experienced before, for me in comparison to other 4 or 5 stars this spot falls short. If this is your first Mexico resort you'll probably love it.

Amazing honeymoon

From the moment we got off the coach to walk in tonthe lobby, it was amazing.Amazing 10 nights at the resort.Caters for all meals a lot of restaurants to choose from as well as an amazing buffet.The alcohol seemed low vol like it had been watered down that was the only down fall. We would recommend and definitely return.

Honeymoon October 2017

My husband and I recently booked a trip with TUI for our honeymoon from the 10th October- 17th October 2017 at this hotel.It’s obvious from the moment you walk into the lobby why this hotel is 5 stars!The plane ride is about 9 hours, but once you get to Cancun airport it only takes about 20 minutes to get to the hotel! Don’t worry though, you don’t even hear the planes! You know those pictures you see in broachers of holidays and you think to yourself ‘as if’, I now know where they take all these photos! At the Royalton!There are 2 upgrades you can have, the first one is standard where you get a Grey bracelet, the second is a black or silver bracelet which is called ‘diamond club’, this means you have a butler and can go a few more places then the grey bracelet can have another pool which is a little less crowded and can go onto a different area of the beach exclusive to diamond club memebers. And then the top one is called ‘hide away’, you get a pearl white bracelet with this and can go everywhere on the resort and also have a pool and beach and bars to yourself.. no kids allowed in this part! We also had a sneaky look One evening and they had a live band playing by the pool in the day! It all depends what you want, we personally had diamond club, and enjoyed this! Also your bracelets act as the room keys which is pretty cool! There are lots of different restaurants there, and bars and snacks. So there is ALOT to choose from. We only went for 7 days, this was not enough time! There are shows on every night too and exercise classes in the pools! If anyone is worried about tipping we did sometimes when we felt necessary but don’t worry too much about this, there are so many people there anyway! Our room was facing the mongroves, it smelt a little, but nothing like some of the reviews suggest, and I have a very sensitive nose! I do love the smell of fresh air and county though so maybe that’s why? They knew it was our honeymoon so we had a banner on the door too! The only down side was when we arrived we were given standard bracelets so when we got to the diamond pool we were ushered away, I went to see David a TUI rep and he took me to the diamond club lounge so it was resolved straight away.I would certainly go back here and loved it, but on the same token it seems everyone goes here for special occasions and I felt at least 50% of the people there were from UK! So unless you go on an excursion ( we did, highly recommend the Mayan Traditions) you don’t see any culture!Apart from that fab!
