Relaxation and fun for the whole family at a basic family-friendly resort on a white-sand beach in Cancún’s Hotel Zone.
Popular as a timeshare resort, The Royal Caribbean is located on a well-maintained beach in Cancún’s famous Hotel Zone. Guests include families and older persons, and fewer amenities means that hotel patrons are free to go off property and explore what’s in the area. All the rooms feature spectacular views of the Caribbean and they come in three different categories: double room, one-bedroom suite and master suite. The double room has two double beds, a kitchenette, one bathroom and a Juliet balcony. One-bedroom suites have a living room and dining room, full kitchen, one bathroom, a balcony and can accommodate up to four adults. The 1,500-square-foot master suites accommodate up to six adults and have a full-size, fully equipped kitchen, living and dining room, two bathrooms and a private terrace with table and chairs.
The Royal Caribbean has various on-site venues where guests can satisfy their hunger and slake their thirst. Four different restaurants give patrons a choice of seafood, Italian, international, Mediterranean and pizza and the on-site snack bar, café, and three bars—including a pool bar and karaoke bar—offer plenty of choices for a snack or drink. Other amenities at the resort include a spa, fitness center, swimming pools, babysitting services, supervised kids’ activities, a business center and dive center.
For those who want to venture off the beach and explore Cancún’s top attractions—endless shopping, delicious food, bars, clubs and natural wonders—it’s all just up the road. Just head 10 minutes north and when you’re between Km 8 and 9.5, you’re smack dab in the middle of all the action.
The Yucatan Peninsula is famous for its cultural and historical sites but three in particular make a great day trip from Cancún. Tulum, south of Cancún and right on the coast, is one of the best-preserved and most spectacular cities built by the Mayans just south of Cancún; further inland, Chichén Itzá is a 1,000-year-old city with an enormous, 79-foot-tall stone pyramid known as El Castillo; and Coba, another Mayan city that dates back more than a millennium. Tours to all these sites are available from Cancún.
