Royalton Riviera Maya [Travel] Hotel Review

This past week I traveled to Cancun for a relaxing vacation. My mom, aunt, and my brother's family came along. My brother and his wife were the ones that arranged the hotel, choosing the Royalton. This all-inclusive resort has 5-star ratings. To be honest it has been the best all-inclusive I’ve stayed in. Not sure if it’s because they opened a few years ago but the service and most importantly the food was outstanding. If you are planning a trip to the Rivera Maya and want to stay in an all-inclusive, I would definitely recommend The Royalton. Here are a few tips if you stay here.
PLAN AHEAD
Like any trip try to plan ahead. Unfortunately, there was a lot of sargazo (seaweed) during my stay. Make sure you research before time. I know you can’t control nature but researching doesn’t hurt. The Riviera Maya has the best beaches in the world, but this seaweed makes the sea look dirty and it's difficult to swim. If you don’t care much about swimming on the beach, Royalton has amazing pools and amenities that will make you forget about the seaweed problem. Take a look.

DINNER RESERVATIONS
There are about eight restaurants (that I could count) throughout the resort. Make sure to talk to your concierge to make dinner reservations. My top favorite restaurants were the Zen, Hunter and Agave. Zen is a Japanese tepanyaki place. Since we had no reservations we just ordered from the regualr menu, which was pretty good. Make sure to reserve the tepanyaki table it is so much fun! Hunter is a steak house, but it also offers fish and chicken and vegetarian options. Make sure to order the petit filet and the creme brulee. Agave offers Mexican cuisine, naturally, everything was amazing. Make sure to order the sopa de lima and cochinita pibil. Royalron has other types of restaurants including Italian, Mediterranean, Caribbean and TexMex. Oh, and the daily buffet, called Marché, which is top of the notch. Do not underestimate this one I had amazing food here too, my favorite being tuna ceviche. There is also a sports bar that offers Hookah and a nightclub called XS. 




TOURS
Royalton counts with Nexus, which is a Tour and Excursion company. They arranged our visit to  Tulum. They offered transportation and a guided tour. This company is reliable and secure. It is always good to know that tours are in both English and Spanish. Since I have been to Cancun many times I was looking forward to just relaxing and enjoying the resort amenities, so we only visited Tulum and Playa del Carmen. But if it's your first time I recommend visiting Isla Mujeres, Chichen Itza, Cenotes, Xel-Ha, Xcaret among many other attractions and historical sites. Click here to see what Nexus has to offer.
