  • My daughter had the time of her life while staying at the Royal Cancun and it was all because of the Kids club at the resort. The workers there were amazing! Each day they played with many children.....  more »

  • Really good place, you can take good photos with friends.
  • relatively uncrowded. decent off shore snorkeling. clear yet kind of cloudy waters. free (?) seats with umbrella behind ocean spa hotel. this is a cute lil public beach between many boat docks. i was debating between a 4 and 5 star rating, and decided to go with 4. while this is a nice beach, it isn’t absolutely breath taking like some others.
