Awesome place
Like a cruise on land.

The Royal Sands & Spa All Inclusive, Cancun, Mexico
Not as good as other hotels in Cancun
The hotel is ok. It looks a little outdated, and they charge as much as other hotels that are in a much better shape. The most annoying thing about this hotel is the fact that you MUST GIVE them your room key everytime you go to the restaurant, everytime you order a drink, when you get your towels. I have been travelling to Cancun, Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya in general for the last 10 years and no other hotel retains your card while you dine or eat. They can see you have an all inclusive bracelet and you give them your room number and your name. That should be enough to get the service you are requesting. Just for this reason I will never go back to this hotel nor recommend it to anyone. There are only two restaurants in site and the snack bar. (And they never want to serve you at the snack bars , they ´recommend you to go to the buffet instead)

We were very disappointed that our balcony was so small and had no furniture. The whole point of getting a room with a balcony is to use it. We put the chairs from the room on the balcony; however, they were too big so we couldn't sit outside...what a shame! I won't recommend your hotel because of this!

Spontaneous getaway
I chose this resort randomly and was pleasantly surprised. It was VERY clean, great customer service and friendly employees. The Food at the restaurants was delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

Royal Sands is an older hotel, but very clean. Most of the staff works very hard to accommodate guests. Eduardo at Char Hut and Fernando at La Veranda were great. Food is very good. Great beach. I would definitely go back to this resort.
