Great staff, wonderful suites, ideal for families, safe, fun, and you won't be disappointed. This resort is not all inclusive so you don't have to deal with that aspect at all. You're staying with actual owners that care versus users that don't care. The all inclusives tend to have people that aren't as respectful or in tune their surroundings. You get what you pay for and this is worth paying a prime penny. Great activities for kids, nice staff that runs the programs. The staff for all areas of... Read more

Over the past 20 years, we have stayed at all of the Cancun Royal Resorts.. The Royal Islander is by far our favorite! Clean, comfortable and very welcoming! We prefer this location because it is right next to an undeveloped area which affords daily viewing of all sizes of iguana in their natural habitat. Our stay was in a beachfront junior suite from 12/31/16-1/14/17. Our wonderful Maria Angela did a phenomenal job making our room spic and span each day. She always had a cheerful greeting and s...

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was ok. Our luggage was lost for the first 2 days and the front desk staff was not helpful whatsoever with helping us contact the airport or where to find clothes in the meantime. The lack of activities to do after 8pm was disappointing. You either went up to your room or down the strip for sports bars, clubs, etc.. The bar staff, wait staff and maids were amazing though!

Spacious, clean, comfortable. Great sea views. Good food and drinks at the restaurants and a very well stocked convenience store. Excellent service from hotel staff. All we needed! Perfect! But book directly or using other online booking system. The experience booking using Trip Advisor was really bad. No customer service at all!

Let me start off with this - our issues are probably as much our own expectations as anything that the staff at Royal Islander could have done to make our stay better. Our first trip to Mexico was in 1995 and it was to the Royal Islander and we were excited to go back. We absolutely fell in love with Cancun because of our stay at the Royal Islander back in the day. It was probably part nostalgia that raised our expectations above where they would be for most travelers to Cancun. We also own a... Read more

Royal Islander is a great place. Staff and other guests are friendly. Food is available to cook yourself or be served. Great Villas. Pool is lovely, beach is gorgeous. A wonderful place to relax, meet with friends and enjoy yourself. An extra bonus is the use of the other Royal resorts and the free shuttle bus between them. Love the Spa at the Royal Sands.

First trip to Cancun. Found the resort and rooms to be very clean and organized. We met Griselda Mercado ( Greece ) Personal Concierge,She helped us with scheduling tours, how to get to the local merchants and asked us to look at their new resort. We were very unhappy with the way we were treated by the people at El Hacienda. They decided we did not have open minds.Returned to the Islander and talked to Greece about our situation. She responded and said that she would bring in up at their weekly... Read more

I needed a place for rest, fun, convenient, beauty. This Royal resort was perfect. I have 4 teens. We loved the convenience of the market in the hotel and went there all the time. We did not do all inclusive so we had extra money to do a catamaran trip and Chichen Itza and I am so glad!!

Decent hotel with beach access and facilities available at the different resort group hotel. As it was still off peak, it was fairly uncrowded and thus able to enjoy some quiet relaxing time. Staff were very polite and helpful.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to stand beneath Niagara Falls? How about standing next to an open fire hydrant? Ever wondered what it's like to be hosed off in a prison shower? If so, this is the resort for you. Water pressure is no issue. In fact it's so good you get to take a shower and a bath at the same time, every time. If you're not careful about sealing the shower curtain the whole bathroom can be your tub too! No need for soap, this shower is in constant pressure washer mode. It j... Read more
