My husband and I had never been to Cancun (although we have traveled extensively) and wanted to take a getaway for our anniversary without our child. We were very happy with our choice of the Royal Sands. The grounds were beautiful! The pictures of this resort are truly what it looks like. You know how sometimes the pictures can look better than when you actually get there....that is not the case with this resort. It's beautiful! Our one-bedroom villa was very clean. The staff at the Royal Sands was excellent. Our personal concierge, Heidi, was very helpful. We had excellent service and food at Captain's Cove, Hacienda Sisal and El Conquistador. La Veranda was good for breakfast or lunch. Keep in mind this is a family resort so if you are a single person or couple looking for a little more "wild" time then this isn't the resort for you. That being said we still found the pool bars and bartenders lots of fun. We definitely plan to return and will bring our son the next time. The all-inclusive option worked well for us but I do understand why some reviewers complained about having to show the room key all the time (although that didn't bother us). We also didn't mind taking the shuttle to the other resorts for additional dinner options. Also, keep in mind this is a time-share property so they will try to sell to you but we didn't find them to be overly pushy.

Although the air conditioning could have been a little cooler at night, our stay was totally relaxing. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we asked for, treating us like royalty.
