Royal Hideaway Playacar is by far the best all inclusive adult resort I have stayed at. The restaurants and food were similar to any top restaurant you would find in any major city. The staff and service were second to none! My wife and I will most definitely be returning.

So Great!!!

Our 5 day stay was amazing. The restaurants in this hotel are amazing and the service was just as great. Damian the massage therapist is the best I have ever experienced. he offered a free 10 minute massage right on the beach. AMAZING!! Ceasar is the entertainment guy. He is every where...pool side, beach, and in doors offering all kinds of entertainment. We had so much fun with him during karaoke. He is very personal and interacts well with all the guests. We loved our stay and would definitely return.

So perfect!

Went here with my sister for 7 days. We wanted somewhere relaxing, not too busy with partying, good food and a nice beach. This place checked every box! We absolutely loved it. Impeccable service from nearly everyone. Visited the spa nearly every day, highly recommended. Now I just need to figure out how to afford to be a regular. If you're thinking about booking a trip here, do not hesitate. Go! You'll be so happy you did.

was very nearly perfect

Transfer from airport was great, the hotel and grounds are excellent, staff were very friendly, the only reason we gave this a 4 and not a 5 is we were unfortunately there during building works in 2016, this included digging up the restaurant below the main restaurant during dinning and also breaking through walls on the same level whilst we were sat on the terrace having dinner, no escape on the beach at the time either as the work was relentless, added to that the hotel next door was being worked on too so no sanctuary in our room either. That said we would certainly return again as long as there were no works being carried out. Please bear in mind this was a review for last year and I'm sure work will have been completed long ago.

Great time at an outstanding property

Spent a long weekend at this property & everything was excellent. From check in to check out the service was top notch. All meals & drinks were very good. I suggest Las Venetas, high tea & the Azsia restaurant with Lorenzo as your server - a great guy. The beach has soft white sand, the hidden pools are a nice getaway from the main pool & the spa service was outstanding.
