A spacious junior suite at an all-inclusive Cancun resort on a beautiful, white-sand, Caribbean beach

The Lowdown

Get the royal treatment at Royal Sunset Beach Resort, sitting on one of the most beautiful shores in the Mexican Caribbean and the sought-after Cancun hotel zone. This stay has it all: comfortable rooms and suites, a variety of gourmet dining experiences (including a dinner theater), a spa inspired by ancient Mayan techniques, water sports, yoga and guided bicycle tours. And with kids’ activities, it’s also a great choice when you’ve got a royal family in tow.
Beyond the resort is the best of Cancun nightlife, shopping and restaurants, including popular Coco Bongo, Señor Frogs and Carlos ‘n’ Charlie’s. But the fun goes on here, too, like at the yacht club and lagoon, designed to get you close to Mexico’s sea life. And the daily itinerary of activities isn’t so sparse, with options like Pilates, cooking lessons, poolside fashion shows, shopping tours and beach volleyball – it really is a taste of Cancun’s best. Or shall we say, a royal flush?


 A romantic escape, each Royal Sunset accommodation brings together comfort and Caribbean charm. These abodes each hold sleek furnishings, a balcony or terrace with lagoon or ocean views, a kitchenette with utensils and robes and slippers for two. The 473-square-foot Junior suites come with a queen bed and offer a balcony or terrace with a view of either the sea or the lagoon.  


 Sunset Royal’s five restaurants offer five unique dining experiences, inspired by international cuisine and the Riviera Maya. Find international-buffet breakfasts and lunches at Acuario and Cappricio, dinner shows at Moonlight Theater, casual eats and cocktails at Aqua Grill and sophisticated Asian-fusion dinners at Bamboo. 


 Ya’ax Che Spa draws from ancient Mayan wisdom and modern technology to relax your mind and rejuvenate your body. Treatments incorporate natural ingredients, like lemongrass, lime, jasmine, aloe, organic honey and rainforest flowers. From the Massage with Mezcal & Lime in Chaya and Red Wine Massage to the Lavender Rosemary Body Wrap and a full-service beauty salon, its menu promises a complete spa experience, from head to toe. 


 One of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico, Cancun is known for its beaches and party atmosphere. But as much as it boasts in nightlife, it offers in low-key relaxation and heart-racing adventure. From watching the sunsets and going shopping to touring ancient Mayan-ruin sites and the jungle, a variety of tropical activities can be enjoyed here. The larger Riviera Maya is also home to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cozumel and Puerto Morelos – other unique destinations, each with its own history and pristine shores.

This was my 3rd stay at the Royal. I'm a member and was there this time around with 6 friends. Our rooms were absolutely fantastic, as was the view of the ocean, the service and the food. One waiter, Brian, was especially helpful and attentive. All but one member of the staff (host at the Cappricio) were kind and made you feel at home. The shows at the theatre are high-quality and feature talented professionals.

Beachfront Mediocrity
Reviewed 22 hours ago

Resort in desperate need of upgrades in both aesthetics and infrastructure. Their primary focus is to sell you a timeshare, so be aware. Lots of confusion around the wristband system by the staff in what is included and what isn’t. Food variety in restaurants and on buffets not great. Concierge and hotel staff seem to work for two different companies, so neither seem to give the same answer. Balconies are “faux” facing the ocean meaning you can’t sit or stand on them... they are like 6” deep... not clear from photos. Construction on north side constant during waking/daylight hours.

Excellent Service especially Raul on the Beach
Reviewed 2 days ago

I gave this resort a 5 star based upon quality of service, friendliness and effort. The place is not the newest but it is clean, close to everything and reasonable. I was truly impressed with Raul and his beach side service. He literally was running/jogging all day to his customers and the drinks and food came quickly. They have wonderful beaches and activities. The 8th floor Cafe/Lounge offered spectacular sunset views and you could even arrange a private dinner from there. Awesome time. Fitness room was great as well as the Massage provided by the Spa.

Peaceful, amazing!
