The Royal Haciendas is located 10 minutes north of Playa del Carmen. One of the best features of The Royal is its accommodations. Guests stay in spacious two-bedroom two-bathroom villas that fit up to six people. Villas have full kitchens and ocean-view terraces. At night, kids can relax while watching their own DVDs. Two onsite restaurants and a take-away food counter offer a variety of food for all meals. Families can enjoy the special themed meals, from BBQ Cookout Night to Oriental Night. Guests may enjoy four large pools, as well as two kiddie pools and an onsite playground. An array of planned activities, including Mini Olympics and Water Balloon War, are offered daily, with separate planned activities for teens, such as video games and movie time. The Royal offers kayaks, snorkel gear, bikes and golf clubs to enhance family’s vacations.

This is not our first visit to Mexico but first time in The Royal Haciendas resout.
We loved the grounds, lots of pools and jaccussis. Many places to get food and drinks.
The quality of food is very good.
All staff is trying hard to please the guests.
The beach is really good with lots of beach beds and shade. No seaweed.
We had junior suite with kitchennete which was a nice addition to all inclusive plan.
Special thanks to Facilitues supervisor Janet.
She went extra mile to make our bed arrangements comfortable.
Many thanks to you!
I was disappointed with a clamsy attempt to trick us into membership presentation.
I was not clear about what a 1 hour presentation was about, did not get explanation or copy of the invitation to read the details. I only realised when I arrived on time to learn that I need my ID and it is all about membership promotion.
I might be interested to listed if the consierge was clear and frank.
This left unpleasant aftertaste.
I would appreciate more details about the resort amenities instead when we arrived. The resort is large and has much to offer.
It is families oriented and not for late nights disco or parties. Make your selecton with clarity.
Overall I liked it a lot and may be back.
We had never been in a catamyran. Raul Cabrera was our operator. He was very personable & knowledgeable. He made our experience very memorable & look forward to riding in another. I would recommend taking advantage of this amenity at the resort.
