                    Everythink was good, the city An the history places are amazings. The hotel is incredible

                    It is far from the shoping

                  • Family with children
                    10.0

                    Very nice facility with great pools, beach access and affordable food and drinks.

                  • Group of friends
                    8.8

                    The beach, staff, drinks, and pool were all awesome! I highly recommend this resort. Also, the pizza was great!

                  • Couple
                    9.2

                    location - located directly on the beach; comfort - hotel services are very good, including beach and swimming pool facilities;

                    Internet - wi-fi network available at the hotel works at the spead of 10-20 kb/s at maximum (at least in two rooms where we lived). Therefore it is hardly possible to read and write e-mails. Completely impossible to download or upload any files, evne as small as 100 kb in size. Invoices - Royal Islander does not provide stamped invoices at the check out (actually, they provide no invoices at the check-out date, you are supposed to receive an e-mailed invoice afterwards). Therefore it is not the best option for people who has a business trip (when official invoice/receipt is needed from the hotel).

                  • Family with children
                    9.6

                    Perfect for families. I am really glad you discourage the Spring Breakers from coming. Your staff was great!

                    WiFi was a bit spotty. Other than that, no problems!

                  • Older travelers
                    8.2

                    Hudge(100 sqm)appartment with 2 separate rooms,complete kitchen,hall,dressing-room,two LCD TV,big veranda or balcony directly to beach.The beach is fantastic,private of the hotel(no money for beds,palapas-umbrella)with beach bar,perfect cleanliness of rooms,pool,beach,etc.There is a shop with decent prices for all you need in your room.Big pool,also one small for children.

                    Noisy(old, but efficient)devices for air condition,fridge,ventilatory of bathroom. No day or evening entartainment,all close at 10.pm(this is very good for families with young children). Very important is to book beginning with Saturdays,because it is a time shared hotel and every Saturdays is very posible to be switched in another room.

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    Great location right on the beach stocked with beach chairs which some other hotels lacked! A bit far from the city center but there is a free shuttle that you can take to go to other Royal resorts which is a plus!! We had a wonderful time!!

                    No hot tub!!

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    I booked a suite for 8 days, 1 day longer than their customary weekly rental. Having to relocate all our belongings for 1 night's stay was extremely time-consuming and basically deprived us of our last day of vacation. I think some better planning would have had us booked into a suite which was not committed to an owner for the week following our stay. Other than that, the facilities were very well kept and the service was very attentive. Place is very pretty, lovely landscaping, good views of the Carib from all around. When traveling with a teenager, the open key charge for all refreshments can get expensive. Families traveling here should plan accordingly.

                  • Couple
                    6.6

                    For a $95 per night, it was a fair deal for Cancun. Restaurants are good (here I include the restaurants of the other 2 Royals adjacent to the Islander).

                    - Not so friendly reception staff. - Rooms very basic for the price. - a bit of a walk to the main road (Kukulkan) for the bus.

                  • Family with children
                    9.2

                    The rooms,the service from the concierge + the Thomas More operators.All very good value.

                    The villas are good but the two sleeper option is too small. ( No kitchen or lounge area)
