Recent guest reviews

Lovely staff, better than average food, clean rooms. The A/C in the rooms is not fantastic, but adequate. The music by the pool was a bit much and encouraged some other guests who perhaps should have been in Cancun to be a bit too rowdy. The restaurants were impressive – especially the pianist!

Beautiful grounds and rooms. Very friendly staff. Restaurant choices severely limited blamed on COVID. Food better than average for all inclusive. Mechanical issues seem common as we were locked out of room until they finally replaced the whole lock mechanism. Locked out 4 times in less than 24 hours. Spent 3 1/2 hours waiting to get in. Had no hot water first morning. Was fixed quickly.

Likes: No children, food, restaurants, unlimited drinks, some shows pleasant, elegant decor. Not : Towels are not always available. Huge competition for sitting around the pool. There should be some pleasant soft music and some activity around the pool, upgrading of the rooms needed. Concierges should be more available

I stayed at several hotels in Playacar which are the neighboring hotels to Royal Hideaway. This hotel has old, traditional, royal, outdated feel. The property is kept in great condition, the grounds are nice and simple. It’s a smaller size hotel and the beach is relatively close to any of the villas on the property. The pools are nice and the fact that it’s an adult only hotel without the kids attracts many couples. The crowd for the most part is 50+ with a few younger couples here and there. The staff treats you with utmost respect and attention. What I didn’t like: the rooms themselves. I’ve stayed in much brighter, sun-filled, spacious rooms with large two people jacuzzi’s looking out into the living rooms for a much lower price. I was really disappointed with the quality of food and the quality of restaurants. The choices were limited, some of the restaurants were closed and you had to make reservations ahead of time. I didn’t care for that as I believe there should be no schedules during vacation time. One day I fell asleep and missed my reservation. They couldn’t accommodate me to dine. The organization on the resort is also pretty poor. When I stayed at Sandos, Iberostar, etc I was given the map of the property, a written schedules of restaurants, shows, spa, fitness classes, introduced to the tour guides, etc-etc. right at checkin. Nothing close to that at Royal Hideaway. Activities are limited, super boring resort. To sum up, i am gratefulI but I won’t book again.

Had a great stay! Staff was very nice and room was very clean. Food was good.

Food was excellent. No complaints. Staff extremely friendly and helpful

Beautiful resort and very relaxing. Service, food, room, drinks and all the staff were super.

Very beautiful and relaxing. Service is great and food/drinks are great.

Amazing food, lovely beach, friendly staff and very clean!

Great service. Good food. Great weather. Beautiful property. Pretty beach.

Nice hotel - the staff was excellent - the food was good - it was a little too quiet and a bit smaller than we expected- there wasn't much to do.

Just arrived home from a six day stay at RH. My daughter and I were there to celebrate her graduation from college. My daughter asked for an adults only, relaxing resort where she could prepare for her boards. This place totally fit the bill. I could go on and on about the staff here. I cannot point out any specific people because each an every one of them is there to ensure you achieve your dream vacation. I’ve never seen a group of people that are all collectively pleasant and hard working. We prefer Mexico vacations for this reason. We’ve been all over Mexico and we can always find a thorn in a bed of roses, but not at this place. We were upgraded to a view room just because of the reason we were there. We found the room to be comfortable, spacious with awesome beds. We lacked nothing. Wi-fi was excellent throughout the property. Restaurants were also top notch. And we positively loved tea time. We are huge tea drinkers. This resort also had the best beach of all the resorts we’ve been to in MX. Clean, white sand with turquoise waters. On a personal note, my daughter and I traveled alone. I loved that they tracked us whenever we left the resort. They would document which cab driver we left with and our departure times. We also shared with them our plans for the day. My husband wasn’t thrilled that we were traveling without him, but we wanted a truly special mommy/daughter trip and RH helped to accomplish that. I never once felt unsafe and would consider a solo trip.

Food is great for an all inclusive. Tropical drinks are poor. Beach is great. Room temperature is too hot and can't be controlled so sleep quality was poor. Walkways are slippery and dangerous when wet - we slipped and fell often. The concierge was rarely available. Communication with management prior too arrival was poor. They tried to bill us twice.
