The Royal Playa del Carmen
Redesigned and redefined, THE Royal Playa del Carmen is one of the most successful resorts on the Riviera Maya. Like its sister property, THE Royal Cancun, guests will discover an explosion of luxury around every corner, all provided in an atmosphere of casual elegance. The Resort boasts a perfect beachfront location, mere steps from Playa del Carmen’s famed Fifth Avenue, with its hip night spots, trendy cafes, colorful shops and local color while experiencing THE Royal’s flawless hospitality. The resort’s interior is as impressive as its palatial exterior, where the use of textures, fabrics and natural materials reflects sophisticated seaside grace. The richness of the extra spacious suites (many of which are ocean view or oceanfront), the exquisite furniture, handcrafted by local artisans, the spacious marble bathrooms and furnished terraces, plus an array of unique and exceptional guest amenities assure an experience that goes beyond luxury for discerning guests.

services & facilities

from 240.80 USD
This resort mixes the columns and low white buildings of a classic Mediterranean style with the painted, carved decorations and mariachi-band sculptures of a Mexican hacienda style. Because the buildings do not block the sun, guests can bask by the pool or on the private beach right up until sunset. To cool off, they can lie on in-water chaise lounges or jump into either of 3 freeform pools, 1 whose swim-up bar has swing seating. Butlers stroll through pool and beach areas with books, magazines, sunscreen, and drinks.

A fitness center features cardio and strength-training equipment and is divided by a glass wall from a studio for Pilates and spinning classes. The lobby contains billiard tables; billiards and Ping-Pong also can be played in the 24-hour VIP Lounge.

A business center provides computers, fax machines, office supplies, and high-speed Internet access. Wireless Internet access is complimentary throughout the property.
