The property is great and clean and service is excellent. The overall food at the restaurants is very good with lots of choices. Beach and ocean is outstanding although you need to pay attention to the undertow which can be very dangerous.

Gorgeous beach, food and drinks exceeded expectations for an all inclusive. Off-site restaurants were great. We did the timeshare presentation in exchange for free passes for the Isla Mujeres excursion, low pressure and worth the time, we enjoyed touring the hidden areas of the resort and seeing the behind the scenes of it. We had a double room and it...

Kind, Courteous, Quick Staff. Food was excellent no matter where we ate. Bus service to sister resorts was clean, fast and on time. Very Organized property that was not overwhelmingly large. Better than expected, and we expected it would be good.

Came to Cancun for a family wedding. All together we we three couples each with a lockout unit. The hotel is very nice. A bit dated, no real wow factor like you find at some neighboring resorts, but attractive. The grounds and facilities are immaculate. Clientele are families and a lot of older couples which makes for a quiet, relaxing...

We stayed at the Royal Sands from December 28 to January 5, 2017. This was our first experience with an all-inclusive resort. Everything about our stay met or exceeded our expectations. The resort was clean and well-maintained and the staff were consistently professional and friendly. Even though we were there at the peak of travel season, it never felt "crowded."...

The royal sands is very nice with very pleasant and welcoming staff. Only drawback here is the rude timeshare owners who "reserve" their poolside chairs before 6 am and in some cases never come at all to the chair during the day. There are posted signs warning against this but it is not enforced. The reason I won't return is...

“Just realize that only certain rooms have King beds. Most rooms that we were interested in had two double beds. Rooms have refrigerators, safes, privacy doors and a large closet. The rooms were very well laid out in design and had great views.”

“We had a great beach front view, but in a B room - twin beds only - A rooms are the timeshare they'll try to sell you.”

“The rooms facing north took a lot of wind on the balcony. But there are no bad rooms at this resort. ”

“All rooms have advantages. If you have small children, ground floors, especially in Phase 2, are the best.”
