Much of what I would post about this resort has been stated numerous times by other travels, so I will just focus on main points: Pros - The food and drink selection is very good at the resort. Make certain that you visit some of the restaurants at the nearby affiliate resorts. El Conquistador and Captains Cove were two of...

Lovely resort with private beach (not crowded!), several swimming pools, and friendly staff. We booked the family suite, which is fairly big with large balcony, living room, private bedroom, and a fairly large kitchen. The cleaning lady came twice a day to keep the room really neat. Food and drinks are all inclusive and you can order drinks from swimming...

Everyone from the front desk staff, to our housekeeper (same for all 11 years!) , the security, bell boys and the waiters are ALWAYS friendly, welcoming, helpful, smiling, attentive and eager to please.

The Royal Sands is conveniently located on the island of Cancun. It is very close to the Kuculacan Mall and la Isle Mall. It is within walking distance to many great restaurants. On the premise there is a great grill and an awesome restaurant. There is a Wonderful Restaurant outside the resort called the Sesal. There is also a total...

Drove from Belize City and arrived in Cancun late in the nught and was looking for lodging but did not make reservation ahead of time. Most hotels and resorts do not offer walkins therefore spent hours hunting for rooms. Drove up to Royal Sands and the same requirements but front desk was so nice that the staff told me that...

We stayed 3 weeks - no all inclusive although it is available. Had an A suite that had a kitchen and living room facing east. What a view!!! I loved it. A little dismayed by the timeshare presentation and the concierge aid but we found it easy to do it all without their help. Their loss😀. The one thing I...

We stayed at the Royals Sands for a week and had a fantastic time. The employees are great and care about making you happy. The food at the swim-up bars was excellent and keep in mind when they say the hot dog is giant, IT IS.

We always have enjoyed ourselves and have brought children and grand children over the years. Can't compliment the resort and staff enough for how well the children are treated and cared for. It is a beautiful environs and...

Who spends a lot of time in the room anyway, when you have the beautiful surroundings! The lock off full size beds are the most comfortable, but everything else was great! We go every couple of years with my parents who have a time share here. HIGHLY recommend the Royal Sands!

The room was exactly as pictured, as were the pools. Our room (B) was a bit small but the staff kept everything clean and I did not expect turn down service. I was very pleased with the quality of the food in the dining rooms and the pool bars!!Though you could dine off site, the hotel food was worth staying...

“We own a timeshare at the Royal Resorts, so we weren't paying a weekly charge; however, we extended our stay by one night before our week began and one night after. That was poor planning on my part because it involved too many moves. Next year, we'll put the extra two days either before or after so that we only move once.”
