Our group of 12 absolutely loved the Royal Sands. We had a six rooms between all of us. All rooms were in great condition and one couple upgraded to a beach view room. However, all of our rooms had some view of the beach and complete view of one of the pools. I cannot rave enough about the food selections and the quality. The buffet offered a delicious breakfast every morning. The only restaurant that we didn't eat at was the Sidelines Sports Bar but I believe that is where are late night room service came from. The sushi restaurant, pooside tacos and chips and gauc, Hacienda Sisal were all amazing! We took the free resort shuttle just a few minutes away to have some delicious dinners at Captain's Cove which we were seating outside on the water and the fancy El Conquistador. The staff and service were all very great. The ease of the Covid testing was very convenient. The concierge will help you make your dinner reservations and I loved that there was a travel agency for tours and transportation right within the resort. I would highly recommend the Royal Sands to anyone. If you're hesitating, stop. Book it. During my time out and about exploring centoes and the ruins, some of the people I encountered even said I got lucky with Royal Sands. How did I find it because it is one of the best resorts in Cancun. I booked it because I relied on Expedia reviews and I'm so happy I made the decision to stay here.
