A member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World, Royal Hideaway Playacar is situated on the best stretch of white sand beach along the shores of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. This esteemed resort is within walking distance of popular 5th Avenue. The area’s premier destination for shopping, dining and nightlife. Guests choosing to stay at Royal Hideaway Playacar will enjoy highly personalized and attentive service set among luxurious tropical surroundings.
The Royal Hideaway is a AAA 4 Diamond resort located in the gated community of Playacar. The resort has 200 rooms and suites. The beach was restored to Playacar in 2010 and it is one of the best in Mexico! The sand is a perfect powder white and the ocean is neon turquois. This adults only (age 13 and up) all inclusive resort is located 45 minutes from the Cancun Airport. The resort has two large pools but no swim up bars (they want to serve you). Waiters and waitresses circulate throughout the pool area and offer drinks, sorbets, frozen grapes, fruit kebobs, and more. There are 6 restaurants serving the following cuisines: Signature (International), Caribbean, Italian, Asian, Steak, and the Grill. There is also a dinner theater named Club Royale. The dining at this resort is fantastic. The resort serves super premium liquor (Grey Goose, Ketle One, etc) with Mexican and American beers (Budweiser products). The resort has 24 hour full menu room service.
The rooms at the Royal Hideaway are very nice with a 37″ plasma television, walk in closet, and nice bathroom with separate shower and tub. All of the rooms have fully stocked minibars and hard liquor and wine can be ordered via room service. The resort has a beautiful spa and nice gym. The only negative to this resort is there are only 8 ocean view rooms and they are priced at a 50% premium to the regular rooms.
Overall, I love the resort and it has the best all inclusive meals I’ve ever eaten. The beach is awesome, the service is awesome, and the rooms are very nice.
