From the moment you get to the Royal Resorts, you are treated like family. If you are working with the All Inclusive, the restaurants are excellent! I do have my favorites. The staff is excellent and the place is immaculate! I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the week!!

My second trip to the Royal Sands was even better than first! Ricardo Colli and Luis Jimenes were the best part of the entire trip. They were quick, fun, personable, and made awesome drinks! These two definitely were the life of the pool party.
