My husband and I stayed here in Nov 2016. The grounds are well maintained. The rooms are decorated nicely. All inclusive is available but we did not opt in since we have a lot of local friends and like to leave the resort often. Food Is good at Hacienda Sisal out front. Spa services are a bit pricey but excellent

There are no unwelcome surprises at the Royals. The new decor at the Sands is lovely. The grounds are always perfect and the pools are always sparkling. Lots of activities for the kids, too. Plus American TV.

Just spent a little over a week at this hotel. Had an "all-inclusive" package. All in all, I thought it was a decent value. The food was acceptable. The service was usually pretty good. This hotel is very clean and well-maintained. It has two pools. Both are very nice. Preferred the larger one as it had two nearby rest rooms....

We just got back from the March trip and will come back in June this year for more rest and relaxation. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area if...

We had just spent a week at the Occidental Costa Cancun and then decided at the very last minute to extend our stay for another weekend and found availabilities at the Royal Sands. Pros: -The crowd is all families with children....

We had an ocean front villa in the A building, loved the large bathrooms and bedrooms and closets. Loved that the breakfast buffet at La Veranda goes until nearly noon! Beautiful and clean swimming pools.

I've stayed at the Royal Sands for years and find that it is getting better all the time. We like the fact that the same employees are here which speaks highly for the management. The food location of the Resort is close to everything, restaurants, shopping, airport, etc

Location is fantastic, amenities are great and it has the best trained staff in Cancun, always helpful and eager to please you. Rooms and furniture could need an upgrade to make it 5 stars. Great restaurants in walking distance from hotel.
