What We Love

  • The beach. It’s small and private and has been recently de-bouldered.
  • Lovely gardens and hidden Jacuzzis around the resort.
  • Villa butlers: Each villa courtyard has its own butler, who will do everything from making scuba arrangements to getting your dinner reservations.
  • The gardens, and the large amount of flowing water, at this property have made it a favorite of Yucatan’s rich birdlife.
  • Freebies like bicycles and kayaks.

What To Know

  • Rates include unlimited meals, snacks, top shelf alcoholic beverages, natural juices and soft drinks
  • Get off the property. Yucatan is full of amazing activities, including trips to Tulum, which can arranged by the hotel or done on your own, cenote diving, or scuba diving.
  • The sun is very strong. Use sunscreen (provided in rooms) and hydrate often.
  • Adults only.

Best place in Playacar, Mexico!
The view is breathtaking.Steaks were amazing and the staff were very friendly. At The grill our waiter Fernando Bejarano was more than perfect. We'll definitely come back mostly because of him and the good food!!! We'll be the happiest to see you soon! :)

From the moment we were greeted at the front lobby this resorts went above and beyond to take care of any thing we needed or wanted to do for us! We became friends with Carlos at the front desk. He loves his job and loves making everyone fell welcome and happy! He makes an unbelievable first impression that won’t be forgot. We will be back again for sure. The rooms and food were well above expectations!!! Spices and the hibachi restaurant we both amazing. Not a bad thing to say!

Just returned from another trip back to my wife and I's favorite resort Royal Hideaway! We had not been there since it switched hands to Barceló but please know that all remains the same--Food, View, Rooms and for sure the Royal Service. Thank you Luis, Ricardo, Gernardo, Oscar, Christian, Jonathan, Mercy, Manuel, Juan, etc., etc., Looking forward to many more visits. I would ask management that the blue pool floats at the pool were missed and would love their return. Folks started to substitute with their own floats and it looked a little WT. Oh, and the name plates at dinner were missed as well as it made it feel extra special but we still felt very special. Thanks again for everything, see you soon!

Remarkable service!

I can't thank all these people enough for making our family and friends' stay here so memorable, year after year. Christian, the headwaiter, is inexhaustible! He sees all and makes us each feel so special. Oscar, Javier, Luis, Ricardo, Omar the Chef, Misael and Milca served us all day and every day with great food and drinks and a smile. These people are so special. The only reason why I haven't given this hotel a 5 rating is because of the people who work at Reception...

Improve the staff's ability to obtain boarding passes for the customer. This may require assistance from the travel agency or the airline used. Two of your Concierges have attempted to obtain boarding passes for Spirit Air using my Spirit Air printed schedule, and have not able to print barding passes.
