Our group of 4 spent 4 nights at this adults only all inclusive resort. Everything was exceptional. All of the food we had was MUCH better quality than other resorts we've visited. We especially liked Maria Marie where our waiter, Aguilar gave us exceptional service 2 consecutive nights. Order the soufflé for dessert! Our other favorite was the "Mexican Corner". We ate lunch there every day and Rodolfo was so good to us! We also appreciated the hostess, Maria Jose, who remembered us and our room numbers from her time as hostess at Maria Marie the night before. She was so kind. Every interaction we had with the staff was positive. We also enjoyed the spa and the nightly entertainment. Thanks to Magdalena who cleaned our room. The only negative I have to share is that the resort is not a private or gated resort like many of the Cancun all inclusives. The beach is lovely and the Royal has plenty of cabanas and chairs available. However, it is a public beach, with the public access right by the restaurants and pool area. I didn't like how crowded it felt on the beach because of this. It is also a bit alarming (or perhaps comforting depending on how you look at it) to see police with very large weapons all around the beach area. To be clear, I never felt in danger. It was just different from the other all inclusive resorts that are so private, gated and isolated. P.S. Order the Maria Marie cocktail while at the pool. You'll love it! I can't wait to go back!

Arriving to The Royal and being greeted by Gerardo and Armando is the best feeling in the world! Gerardo took such great care in helping us get to our room without lifting a finger and made sure that our entire stay was perfect. Our pool time was PERFECT with Prudi and Mario taking care of our every need. Vi made sure that we had the best seats and a fabulous tie at the tequila tasting and for the shows nightly. She is wonderful! There is a Foam Party in the main pool every Saturday that is so much fun. Also, the Beachfront Dinner on Thursday nights should not be missed. Delicious steak and more lobster than I have ever been served before. This hotel is the best location to 5th Avenue shopping, bars and restaurants. So safe and a great escape from the hotel property if you want to see then town. It was another wonderful trip! My husband and I can't wait to go back!

We stayed there 30th Dec till 8th Jan 18 and I must say the staff were impeccable. Courteous, friendly helpful but still professional..loved Paco Loco at breakfast, always with a joke and a smile. The hotel itself was grand, and laid out over a very large area, but very tasteful. Thought I'd never find my way about, but after a day or 2 it was no problem. My childrens room was a bit noisy in the morning and we asked if they could change. Within 15mins, they had someone up to take their luggage over to another quieter room. The spa was beautiful too as was the gym. Best equipped gym I've ever seen in a hotel, and used it every day. Food was very nice and varied, and the location was perfect, beach on one side and the "5th Ave" with all its shops, bars, cafes on the other.

Every December my girlfriend and I choose a resort in Playa Del Carmen to spend our anniversary to celebrate. This year (2017) we chose The Royal Playa del Carmen and were extremely happy with everything. The hotel itself is beautiful, clean, and the hospitality was amazing. We had arrived a few hours prior to check in and were walked over to the Restaurant (SPICE) where we ate almost every day. The food at this restaurant was as close to a home cooked meal as it gets. The service at this restaurant was amazing and will not forget our servers and chef. I had asked for an Horchata but at the moment they did not have it. Quickly Christian, Areli, and the chef somehow made me a fresh horchata that tasted amazing. A few days later they heard that we were celebrating our anniversary and as we arrived for a later visit, we had rose pedals all over our table. A great memory we will never forget. Thank you! Our room was also amazing, we had a swim up pool room. We had a jacuzzi in our room, fully stocked mini bar, and a sauna shower. The swim up pool room was awesome because we would wake up and walk 5 feet and dive in to the pool. We would lay outside of our room in either a hammock or on beach chair and enjoy it all. If we would run out of liquor or snacks (Carlos) would always take care of us. In the evenings, we would lay outside our room and watch the sunset without a problem. Midweek we began trying out different restaurants and came across Pelicanos. If we would have found them earlier we would have eaten there since day one. For some reason we really wanted some fresh ceviche but it wasn't on the menu. Instead of telling us that they didn't have it or couldn't make it, they rapidly brought us two bowls of shrimp ceviche. Hands down one of the best ceviches we have ever had. We would like to thank the captains and staff for everything they did for us during the week we were there. (Felipe, Raquel, Roberto, Alfonzo, Daniel, Jaime, Freddy, and Antonio) Thank you! Another restaurant I really recommend is the Taco Bar. We made a mistake in only going there a few times because we got stuck with the food that we had early in the week. We will definitely go there again and eat more tacos when we go back. The pineapple/al pastor tacos, and fish tacos were my favorite. The tartar sauce and chiles had a flavor that we can't describe how good they were. I would also like to thank the staff there for acknowledging our anniversary making us a special unique cake. Thank you for taking care of us (Angel, Pedro, Carlos, and Rogelio). After dinner, and or watching the night shows, the Lobby Bar was our place to be. We sat at the bar watching the shows as we enjoying cocktails. The staff at this bar was funny, fast, and would always take care of us. We hit it off immediately after our first margarita. If someone needed something that wasn't at the bar, they would find a way to get it for us and or others. We would like to thank (Mauro, Reyes, and Pablo) for making us laugh and feel right at home. Thank you! We will be attending The Royal Playa del Carmen next December again. Thank you for such an amazing experience. Everything about this resort was beautiful and what we were looking for.

All the rooms here are nice - some of nicest I've stayed in past years. I've been to this resort 4 times - great location to walk around on the shopping street. The staff was great - special shout outs to The sports and entertainment crew - Melissa/Sergio/Roberto/Daniel/Jazurn give it their all to give the guests different entertainment. I really liked the Asian restaurant - Headwaiter Jesus and our waiters Fernanda, Boreli and Rudy were always accommodating and the food was excellent. This is definitely our favorite resort in Mexico.
