This was a perfect trip for my husband I. Our concierge, Alejandro welcomed us and our room was ready right away, with an upgrade! We had fantastic service from the smiling, helpful staff, especially Fernando and his team by the cabanas! They made sure we had a place every day, anticipated our drink and food orders and even chased down a man on the beach for me to purchase a hat. Food, weather, and hotel room was perfect! Our first all inclusive and we will be back!

This is one of those all inclusives that is not all-inclusive. If you want a semi-decent glass of wine you will have to buy it at a fairly high price. Outside of that, the evening food is decent. Breakfast/lunch are ok at best. The pools are not great, but you won't get a lounge chair there anyway. The beach is very nice.

The resort staff was beyond accommodating and personable. The food was surprisingly good at each and every restaurant. The resort was clean and comfortable, nice rooms and great location. The adults only vibe was extremely pleasant and if you are looking for a romantic vacation, this is the spot for couples. There was no bad vibes from anyone the entire week and would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a well deserved vacation of rest and relaxation. I can't wait until next year.

Room Tip: The villas near the pool have private decks.

This place is truly lovely and relaxing. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. The grounds are painstakingly groomed. The view of the ocean is spectacular and the beach is the most beautiful I've ever been to.
The rooms are simply elegant and while few have an ocean view they are quiet and well appointed.
While the food is plentiful and expertly prepared it is not haute cuisine but certainly very good.
The nightly entertainment needs a major overhaul to cater to slightly more sophisticated tastes, but that in no way took away from the excellent experience here.
Our favorite server, Shaira and activities leader, Axel, deserve special mention for making us feel so I credibly welcome and taken care of.

We are seniors who just returned from Royal Hideaway. Would highly recommend this resort if you are looking for quality, comfort, quiet, and great food. I would rate this as one of the best holidays we have taken. We travel at least 2 to 3 times a year and will return to this resort next year.
