This 639-room resort is as vast and fun-filled as a theme park, only with one major element missing: there are no kids allowed. There are thirteen different swimming pools (complete with swim-up bars), a private, mile-long white sand beach, shows, dance clubs, and nine different restaurants including sushi (Kampai), Italian (D’Italia Casitas), plus a five-course gastronomic journey every evening at Fuentes Culinary Theater. And along with the fun come the games: beach volleyball, tennis, and aqua-aerobics. Just don’t tell the kids what they’re missing.
In the Area
The resort is set on the Caribbean sea amid 450 acres of tropical jungle, but it’s only fifteen minutes away from the shops and cafés of Calle Corazon and Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen. Golfers make the twenty minute trip to the Golf Club at Playacar and snorkelers head to Puerto Morelos to check out the Mesoamerican barrier reef. Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to the Riviera Maya without a visit to a Mayan archaeological site; guests choose from a half day jaunt to ruins of Tulum or a full day trip to Chichén Itzá.
How to Get There
Sweet jossie hugo leo haxvy they are they best also they drinks are amazing and wonderful I’d recomend this place to anyone in the uk the staff are amazing and wonderful and treat you well I’d family and and loved one to here to exprience the wonderful hospitality by the staff
Never having been to Mexico before not quite sure what to expect - we knew it was early season and the weather could not be guaranteed but the opportunity was too good to miss.
Wonderfully friendly and attentive staff - please learn/use even the most basic of Spanish, they really appreciate it but all speak good English.
Tipping is not expected but the odd dollar/20 peso goes a long way
Stayed in Royale for the first five nights and lovely clean spacious room -Tropical gardens are well kept and beautiful and although there are golf carts to take you wherever you want - take a walk and find out where everything is - it will pay dividends - this place is spread over a huge area !
Beach is fantastic and never short of a sunbed/bali bed - way too hot just to stay around the pool - plus the beach and sea are clean and warm
Huge choice of pools/restaurants/bars - but worth booking evening meals as busy very quickly - however the food is divine
Loved the health/juice bar and an amazing Brazilian and pacific rim restaurant.
Spent last two nights in Casitas with a swim up but this was a little disappointing - starting to look tired and ceiling fan not working.
Our only major gripe was the number and volume of young americans drinking heavily and making themselves heard - I get that this is a great place to come, should have done more research I guess but you can avoid the noise with a short walk - just be prepared to expect it
Overall a great place with superb facilities and staff
We had reserved initially the trip for 3 nights. Due to my wife's emergency hospitalization during first two days we limited our trip to only one night. I was told that trip became non-refundable. This would not happen if we went directly thru the hotel. I feel that cancelon should consider to refund part of the non-used nights for this real uncontrollable emergency. Thank you
