Good 6.0
Good if your a family!
This hotel was personally not for me, too many children & day time activities where it was blasted out via a microphone so could be heard from bedrooms & all around the pool. I personally wanted a relaxing holiday & chose this place as it had Spa in the name (which was very expensive!). Nothing against kids but parents were often know where to be seen & allowed the children to play in the ‘adult only pool’ & play ball games near where we were sunbathing even though there was a huge children’s pool & play area. Food options were limited but good if you went to the venues... order room service or pool service & you’re waiting a good hour & it always arrives cold & ‘second best’. Pool service was very limited, sometimes we didn’t see staff for hours. We complained once & the response we got was there were only three staff to cover a large pool area & the beach, they often got caught & held up by those closets to the bar. The rooms were comfortable & clean with all the usual amenities, housekeeping were very good & cleaned whenever you were out the room no matter what time of day. The pool reserving with towels was out of control, I’m a light sleeper & often woken up before 7am when most of sunbeds on the ‘sunny side’ were already taken by towels who then didn’t turn up until much later. The hotel says it has a policy for towels & children in the adult pool but neither of these were put into practise during our stay. Overall a nice hotel but family orientated!

Exceptional 10.0
Definitely will come back
I was very pleased with the check in and check out policy because we had an early check in and when we checked out we were able to stay until 4 pm still with the all inclusive using all hotel installations. The food was very good and staff very kind and attentive. The only thing that I would improve is that the concierge wasn’t able to help us with a working phone number of our car rental. And they really didn’t had any information on our concern so we had to figure it out by ourselves
PATRICIA, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Food could be better. People smoking everywhere. Soaps and shampoos in the room don’t get replaced. Two people have to use the same soap bar. View was promised but not received. Definitely not a 5 star accommodation.

Great time at the Royal Sands
We had a fabulous time. Initially, our room was located in a very noisy location. Although we had to move 2x the staff was very helpful and the other rooms were very nice and quiet.
