Traveler Review – The Royal Playa Del Carmen

An Amphibia traveler just returned from her stay in the Riviera Maya, Mexico at The Royal Playa Del Carmen and wanted to pass along a review of her experience. Here’s what she had to say:

It was a beautiful resort! The food was really great, which sometimes I’m not a fan of all inclusive as the food is mostly buffet style and not always good. They had 6-7 restaurants to choose from – with at least 3 for every meal and no reservations required which is great! They also have 24 hour room service with a box that they will just leave your food if you don’t want to answer the door. This is nice for morning coffee, late night snack, etc.
The rooms were really nice – a Jacuzzi in every room – and for once in Mexico – REALLY GREAT BEDS! Normally they are really hard and uncomfortable. These were really nice!

We stayed at an Oceanview, junior suite which was literally 5 steps from the pool. This was handy to lay out towels in the morning, use our own bathroom while by the pool, get a drink, etc.
One bonus of this resort is that we checked in online and got to pick our exact room 48 hours in advance on their website. You can view all available rooms and the exact location and see a 360 view of the room and the view from the patio of that room which was cool. Drawback of this is that we thought since we had already done all of this online, check- in would be quick – not the case but oh well.
The location was great. A couple nights we walked into Playa for dinner which was only about a 3 block walk. While we didn’t do the party scene or late night beach walk, I felt very safe! I have heard otherwise from some people about Mexico lately.
I’ve stayed at probably 8+ resorts in Mexico and this was my favorite so far!
