Beware...you may be REQUIRED to change rooms if..
Arrived for a weekend getaway. Arrived at 8pm Friday evening. Told that I have a room but am required to move to a different room Saturday between 11am-1pm. We didn't take on any excursions to accommodate the room change. Only to be moved into a room that was not cleaned. Beds clear slept in and used towels on the floor. We couldn't shower after utilizing the gym. Wasn't cleaned until 4pm Saturday. We departed Sunday at 7am. Beware...this hotel rents the rooms from Saturday to Friday. If you arrive Friday or early Saturday be prepared to move into a different room. This was a complete waste of $3,000 (flights and hotel). Back to work I go. :-(

Well Maintained Resort
Just returned from the Royal Sands and Spa. My 21 year old daughter and I spent a few days in Cancun to soak up some sun. The weather was beautiful, the resort was very clean, the food was delicious. The Royal Sands is part of a group of hotels. We were only there for a few days, so we split our time between the Royal Sands and the Royal Cancun. The resorts were very different from each other. The Sands was larger and the water at the beach was rougher, good for boogy boarding. The Royal Cancun was cozier, and the beach was very calm, good for kayaks, paddle boards, and young children. All the staff employees were very friendly. I would like to thank Mariah (spelled differently), our concierge who helped explain the sister resorts and made our dinner reservations. I highly recommend eating at the table service restaurants, as opposed to the buffet for dinner, so make same day reservations each morning. The buffet was excellent for breakfast, but we preferred the other restaurants for lunch and dinner. Check out the spa, if you are so inclined. It is a full service spa, with a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. But if you do get a facial or body wrap, do it at the end of your trip, so that the sun doesn't destroy the benefits of the spa service. The fitness center is good, plenty of machines, free weights and kettle bells. The resort was very well maintained. I even saw staff cleaning the beach chairs. And there were plenty of beach chairs available each day.
