How to Get There
Based on reviews, seems it offers some inclusive options, but didn't have that, so didn't try out too much as wasn't there for vacation. Room was nice. 4th floor, beautiful view. Cleaned daily, even when told service they did not have too. Room had full kitchette. WiFi worked well. Happy hour buy one get one on select drinks, but drinks cost more than other restaurants. (I.e. virgin Pina colada was 80 peso, 40 at off site restaurants, so only worth it at happy hour, but no savings. Pool slide opened our last night there (was previously under repair)
Pool area stayed pretty wet, with about inch of water sitting on tiles all the time. Beautiful view of beach, with easy access. Yes, beach band was around nightly, and loud, but didn't disturb everywhere in hotel. Valet staff are awesome, helpful xx and friendly. Other staff is professional. Can do money e change on site. Washer and dryers on site. When had issue in room, it was addressed right away (11pm at night). Lastly, only problem, feels like can hear every door close on the floor, they always slam closed. Not good, when trying to sleep!
The hotel is in a great location and the staff is very friendly. There is a very nice pool and beach. The place was clean but needs some upgrades. I would stay at the property again because of the closeness to the Golden Zone.
The Ugly: We are staying at the ROYAL VILLAS at the moment and are under SEIGE by LOUD "musicians" who camp out every day on the beach directly in front of the resort for several hours a day and play insanely loud "folk" music consisting of Tubas, trumpets Drums and amplified " troubadours". You can not sit by the pool or barley stand the RACKET it in your room. At first we thought this was a Carnival Festival thing and are trying to be tolerant respecting another peoples culture. But it has been going for two weeks now!!!! and is ruining our vacation. They seem to be playing for people who show
up and sit on the beach in front of the hotel, the beach in Mexico is a public place and I think that is a good thing but the "resort" is supposed to be a private business and not Public beach access but hotel management/staff they seem to encourage this and set up chairs and offer food and drink service for those who don't bring there own coolers. The wrist band and hotel security is non existent.
The BAD: the resort has become fairly run down with poorly equipped rooms, plugged sinks, non working fridges, ice makers, washers and Crappy WI FI which is a "first world problem" but considered a necessity in any decent resort.
The GOOD: The doormen are ALL very friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff are also great, very thorough and pleasant.
So unless you enjoy excruciating LOUD trumpet, tuba and drum music 4-6 hours a day I would stay away.
