Set on one of the most picturesque stretches of sand in Cancun, The Royal Sands features two infinity swimming pools, tennis courts, a spa, and a fitness center.

The fantastic kids’ club keeps children aged four to 12 entertained with sand castle building, pool and beach games, as well as a variety of arts and crafts. For adults, there’s Pilates, aqua aerobics, volleyball, Zumba, and dance lessons, among other activities.

The resort’s large guest rooms and diverse on-site features make it a popular choice for families. Rooms with beachy decor offer private balconies, free Wi-Fi, and coffeemakers. Mini-fridges are stocked with coffee, water, domestic beer, and non-alcoholic drinks.

The two-bedroom suite is a great option for families, featuring a separate living area with pull-out Murphy beds, as well as a full kitchen and two bathrooms.

The resort’s all-inclusive rates include the free use of equipment like snorkeling gear, paddle boards and bikes, along with meals and drinks at the resort’s three on-site restaurants.

Hacienda Sisal is a particular stand-out, designed to resemble the traditional haciendas of the Yucatan Peninsula. This exceptional restaurant offers authentic Mexican and Mayan cuisine, along with crowd-pleasing dishes like burritos and fajitas. Guests also have access to the facilities of the Royal Sands’ sister resorts, the Royal Cancun and the Royal Haciendas, with regular shuttle service running between the three properties.
