Girl Trip!!

Delightful. simply fantastic! The only " learning experience" involved our rental car. DO NOT buy insurance in the United States. It WILL NOT be valid in Mexico. The car will not cost 58.16 plus 80 for insurance...it will cost upwards of 500 dollars....unless....you waste half of a vacation day listening to a sch-peel about vacation packages(time shares) that you have no intention of buying. Beware..the breakfast is good but the salesfolks are unrelenting.

We love it here.

This was our second visit to the Royal Sands. We have been to about 25 hotels both all inclusive and not. For the money you can't beat the Royal Sands. One bedroom villas are spacious with large balconies and hardly a bad view anywhere. The place is immaculate and they have thought of nice extras like plastic chairs as well as trash recepticals at all the beach palapas. You can eat at other restaurants besides the Sands and they have a shuttle.

10 Year Anniversary

The hotel met and exceeded my expectations. The rooms were awesome with an awesome view of the ocean. The restaurants were delicious and the staff was extremely helpful on anything we needed. The only down side we had was the constant offers to view their presentation to buy a timeshare. Once they realized we were not interested they stopped asking us.

Great place

This was a very nice vacation spot for us. The resort is great for relaxing pool side or on the beach. The food was very good and the entire staff is fantastic. Everyone in all departments were very friendly and really seemed to enjoy what they were doing. This was our first time renting a room at a time share property, and we would do it again.

Relaxing winter break

This was our first stay at an all -inclusive resort and it won't be our last. We had such a great time! We want to do it again. The beachfront of the resort is beautiful! Our room overlooked the beach which gave us an excellent view of the sunrise. The resort location is convenient for exploring the city. It's right next to a big mall. The bus stop is nearby. You can hop on it to go to the downtown area. We took the bus to go to Puerto Tortugas to catch the ferry to go to Isla Mujeres. The resort has a shuttle that we took to their sister resorts and to restaurants that are part of their company. The shuttle is free and so are the restaurants. We enjoyed Captain's Cove and Sisal. They have excellent food and service. The travel agency at the resort has an excellent agent who helped us choose our excursions to Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, El Rey and Isla Mujeres.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Chichen Itza and Tulum were both worth a visit. You can't miss them. But El Rey is a gem. It's not crowded and you can explore the ruins without having to compete with anybody for space. Another gem is the new museum across Captain's Cove. It is a work- in- progress but what is open to the public is worth checking out. There are ruins behind the museum that one can explore.
