I love the view, great yoga and pilates/zumba classes, great tennis courts, wonderful pool and the best beach area on Cancun Hotel strip. Ceviche at Express Shop is out of this world. Great happy hour that starts at 3pm! Friendly staff, especially Pepe - fun Spanish lessons

People of trip advisor, I advise you to ignore any negative reviews, what you see is what you get... PARADISE! Great food, stellar drinks, and beautiful beaches, if you don't enjoy your time here you don't deserve a vacation. Everything is perfect all the time, the staff works around the clock to ensure it.

As someone who has stayed at Royal Sands both before and after the all-inclusive option was available, I can honestly say, I'd do all-inclusive again, in a heartbeat. FOOD: We stayed at Live Aqua a few years ago to try something new, and I have to say, the taste factor of the food at Royal Sands is much better. La...

This is a great property. The pictures of the views are accurate, the pools are great, as is the beach. The all-inclusive is well worth the money as it includes several other quality restaurants. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and courteous. My only recommendation is to NOT attend their presentation on becoming an owner. They offer "discounts" on excursions...
