Beautiful Hotel right on the beach

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: Love that you are right on the beach but can also walk into town to shop or eat.
The food and the staff are unbeatable! Our second visit and we'll definitely be back.

Best Vacation ever!

Posted May 4, 2015
Pros: The service was the top of the line. We were really impressed with the attention you get from all the employees.
Location: So many activities to choose from. In the hotel they have lots of things to do, but you can also book all kind of excursions.
This was by far our best vacation ever, starting with this gorgeous hotel, the service was the best ever as well. The employees are so nice, genuine, attentive and much more. The food was excellent. We would go back in an instant. We love it.

Beautiful hotel

Posted May 3, 2015
Loved the grounds and our room. The entertainment at the pool all day was a bit more than we typically enjoy and the quiet pool was a bit too small. Other than this, everything was perfect and would definitely stay again!

Wonderful experience all the way around!

Posted May 2, 2015
Pros: The food 1st and foremost.....atmosphere and customer service. The staff is always willing to help and assist. The pool and rooms were great too!
Cons: The Night life, should incorporate "theme nights" to involve the customers; for example: a Mardi Gras nite with food/dancing music or a Mexican salsa
Location: Shopping on 5th avenue has tons of shopping walking distance to hotel and very safe ; you can take a ferry to Cozymel as well.
GREAT place to vacation! We LOVE the food, rooms, pool, beach, drinks, and the courtesy of the staff. GREAT customer service always willing to help and serve. The food at all restaurants is fabulous....we didn't miss a meal. Shopping right out the front door on 5th avenue for miles. The pool is a great place to hang out.....My only suggestion would be to have more night life for customers; for example--theme nights for the guests with food/drinks/dancing etc like a Mardi Gras nite or a Mexican fiesta etc. I think it would get folks involved that are staying there. Overall , this was our 3rd time to visit and we were NOT disappointed....would highly recommend this for others to visit....love this place!! Karina (hostess at front desk) is wonderful! We loved our pool waitress's too Lily and Purdy....excelenta! Thanks for a great time.....again!

Paradise

Posted May 2, 2015
Pros: Service, Cleanliness, Proximity to 5th Avenue
Cons: Beach was very small and has a big drop off from past hurricanes?
Location: Location was great. Easily accessible to 5th avenue for shopping and restaurants.
My girlfriend and I had a great experience at the Royal Playa del Carmen this past week. Check in process was easy and room was beautiful. We asked for a quieter room and were tucked away in room 602 which was by the small pool and was very quiet. We didn't experience any of the construction noise that others may have. Pools were very clean but you definitely had to wake up early and grab a lounge chair. Drinks were great and strong. Food was very good but not amazing as others have said. There are a lot of options though (our favorite was probably El Mediterraneo). Beach was small but we walked a couple yards next door and the beach improved a lot. (The good part of the beach is where the current construction of the new Hyatt is going up at so I don't know if it'll still be available once that resort opens). Service was excellent. Everyone was very nice. Shout out to Mario, our bartender at the bar right outside El Mediterraneo! We also booked a trip to Xcarat through BD travel at the hotel lobby and it was trouble-free. We also walked around 5th avenue and went to Señor Frogs. Great location. Overall great experience and would go back again!

Surprised!!

I've never stayed at an all inclusive resort and I was worried about the quality of food. It turned out to be better than I expected. The beach was full of seaweed so swimming in it was not as awesome as I thought it would be. Overall, great experience.

Cons: Business room computers. Couldn't print boarding passes. The @ key wouldn't work right.
Totally awesome! I'm already working on making a trip back in the near future.
