We visited during our kid's April vacation. We are a couple with two teenagers. The room was gorgeous just like the pictures. We had a one bedroom and the Murphy beds in the living room were fine. Our room was recently updated and quite nice. I think it was pretty full but it didn't feel crowded. We really appreciated the...

The Royal Sands is a great resort for families. Service is excellent and the staff is friendly. Food is well prepared and there our many options for dining. The resort is situated on one of the best stretch of beach in Cancun. There are 2 pool areas one an infinity pool facing the caribbean.

Great resort! Our one bedroom suite was very nice and spacious. Great views of the ocean from all rooms. Food was really good at all of the restaurants, La Veranda, Hacienda Sisal, Char Hut, and especially Captains Cove (look for Pancho or Willy the local crocodiles in the water off the deck!). All of the staff were very friendly and...

I have been going to the sands for 17 yrs. they sold it as a family catered resort but now it's for young people who take advantage of the all inclusive,i.e. They drink like fish. The food is terrible

We love the Royal Sands so much so that we have been there three times in one year. The service is great. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. The Apartments are roomy and well kept. All in all it is one of our favorite vacation spots in the world.

Facilities dated, room had 2 tiny uncomfortable beds, bathroom was awful, on site food was poor quality especially "The Veranda" which was just downright bad, drinks were very watered down, on site bars closed by 8 pm, too many smokers, service wasn't great with exception of maid, elderly population dominated which made it feel like a 65+ community, we didn't...

We had 4 adults and stayed in an ocean view villa. It was a gorgeous room and we loved the balconies and the fact that we could eat breakfast outside overlooking the ocean. We have stayed at Royal Resort properties in the past and this was everything we expected. We loved the beachfront views and the beach was well maintained...

We did a lot on our trip, but the most relaxing and fun time we had was at the char hut pool bar. Everyday we had wonderful service by a bartender Cano (Jose Luis Ricalde Cano) that remembered us daily, made the best drinks we had in Cancun, and offered the most excellent attentive service. We were truly impressed by...
