    Excellent stay

    Great food and accommodations. The staff was friendly and offered great service. Our concierge, Maria, was outstanding. The rooms are nice and ours was very quiet. I highly recommend this resort. We will definitely return.

    Relaxed and friendly vibes all round.

    A great laid-back, beach holiday in modest luxury. As vegans, meals cobbled together most of the time were not nutritionally balanced and the cocktails were a bit ropey. Excellent staff, esp in Grill

    Best vacation spot in playacar

    We are in love with this hotel! The staff here is what makes it exceptional! From concierge, Maria , Ricky and Lorraine to the all bar staff especially Javier! The entertainment staff is very fun! We love Israel, Carlos, Naomi and Brenda. A huge shout out to Alejandro in the front offices to seeing our ever need is taken care of! No request is too big. We even extended our stay by 3 nights and are booked for 14 nights in July! The beach front of this hotel is stunning. The food and grounds amazing!!! Our new home away from home!!

    Loved our stay at Royal Hideaway!

    What a lovely, calm place to spend a few nights. We got up early every morning to relax by the pool, enjoy the sea breeze, took our time with a buffet breakfast, and enjoyed much-needed downtime. Reminder to read closely - most of the restaurants at this resort have a dress code particular for men! (Closed-toed shoes, long pants, collared shirt). We missed out on some culinary experiences because we didn’t pack appropriately, but honestly eating at Spices most nights was a highlight. Amazing Oaxacan/Mexican food. Overall really happy with our experience!

    Lovely beach, tasty food, chilly pools

    The pools were a bit too chilly, so I'm sure they would get more use if they were slightly heated. It would also be great if they had a hot tub for those chilly mornings/evenings. But the beach was lovely, the staff was friendly, and the food was tasty (and they accommodated our vegan diets)!
