As part of the family of four Royal properties in Cancun, the Royal Caribbean shares several stand-out attributes with its siblings. All guest quarters here have private outdoor space, access to a private beach and is chock-full of amenities and cool extras like a fully-stocked mini market with fresh produce to make you feel at home.
One and two bedroom suites are well-kept but a bit outdated. If you can overlook the '80's era rattan furniture, the rooms do feature nice tile flooring and furnished balconies. All have clear views of the famed Gulf of Mexico tides lapping at the sandy white shoreline, guaranteed from every room.
Similar to its sister resorts, there’s no shortage of activities for busy families. There’s two fresh water pools to splash around in, and a separate dedicated children’s one. Free hotel-supplied kayaks and sailboats take ocean fun to a new level. If you’re waterlogged, kids of all ages can play volleyball, ping-pong, tennis, or enter a sand castle building contest.
Grown-up groups can sign up for an underwater excursion at the marina directly facing the hotel. Cancun’s waters are famous for their sights under the sea, having the good fortune to be right on a portion of North America’s only living coral reef.
If you’re looking for more authentic Mexican experiences, try a free salsa class poolside. Or, forgo the hotel’s two restaurants, which aim to please a variety of taste buds, and head to nearby Hacienda Sisal for an old-school Mexican dining experience complete with a mariachi band.
