About The Royal Sands & Spa All Inclusive

Family-friendly all-inclusive resort on Cancun’s beachfront

Caribbean seaside resort

A 25-minute drive from the airport, The Royal Sands & Spa All Inclusive, located in the center of Cancun’s Caribbean shore, offers direct access to the beach. It’s also a short walk to the popular Kukulcan Plaza, a hub of shops, bars, and restaurants.

Free watersports and fun

Though the free watersports, kids club, and entertainment options offer plenty to keep you busy, guests also get all-inclusive privileges at the hotel’s sister properties. Free shuttles run to and from The Royal Cancun, in Cancun, and The Royal Haciendas in Playa del Carmen.

A massage before dinner

You can borrow snorkeling gear from the sports desk and enjoy the colorful underwater world with your kids, or head out on a bike ride to explore. Afterwards, you can pamper yourself with an open-air massage before dinner in one of several restaurants and bars.

A beer on the balcony

Families appreciate the large, colorful 1- and 2-bedroom suites, all with free WiFi, kitchenettes, and a fridge stocked with free beer and non-alcoholic drinks. All have balconies with ocean views, along with dining areas for 4-6 adults.

The Royal Sands & Spa All Inclusive
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!

Great hotel walking along the beach our hotel was defiantly the best ! The only thing I would say is it needs more entertainment in the evenings ! You have to go into town for that ! And it needs an English breakfast ! But even saying that I will be going back ! Loved it
