Editor’s Review of The Royal Sands
... more />
There's one reason why the Royal Sands is consistently rated one of the top resorts in Cancun by TripAdvisor reviewers year in and year out. It's all about space! Sure, the resort boasts one of the nicest stretches of beach in Cancun, an impressive infinity pool, an enthusiastic Activity Center for children, a highly regarded spa and even a small onsite grocery store. But one look at their two-bedroom suites, complete with a master bedroom and separate room for kids, pull-out Murphy beds in the living room for larger families, a full kitchen, two bathrooms and an oversized balcony, and you understand the attraction. This is one room where you won't mind spending a considerable amount of time on vacation.
Even with the full kitchen, the Royal Sands offers an all-inclusive package, allowing you to dine at three onsite restaurants and four other Royal Club Vacations properties in Cancun. A free shuttle service whisks you away to the other resorts on a regular basis. There's also the opportunity to spend half your week in Cancun and the other half at their sister property, Royal Haciendas, in the nearby Riviera Maya. There are many options to consider, but one thing is certain: You're guaranteed a spacious abode in a beachfront setting.

RoomsAll 176 villas in the U-shaped building have ocean views. Unlike many of the resorts in Cancun, the suites are pretty close to the surf so you can hear the waves at night in most of the rooms. We stayed in a Two Bedroom Suite, which has two bedrooms separated by a full kitchen, dining room table and a living room. If you have additional children, they can sleep in the two pull-out Murphy beds in the living room. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, walk-in closet, flat-screen television and a shower and bathtub in the bathroom. The children's bedroom has two double beds with separate bathroom and ample dresser space. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, silverware, glasses, a stove, refrigerator, microwave and blender. The living room features a DVD player with surround sound, and you can rent DVDs from the market inside the resort. The balcony also holds a table if you want to enjoy your meals with an ocean view.
If you want to cut costs, opt for a One Bedroom Suite. The villa has the same configuration as the Two Bedroom Suite without the second bedroom for the children. Instead, the kids could sleep in the Murphy beds in the living room. Thus, a One Bedroom Suite can sleep a family of four.
