Perfect!!!

We wanted an all inclusive with a great beach and pool. We got it! And so much more!!! The beach was expansive, with gorgeous turquoise water that was so fun to be in, soft sand, and drink service!!!!! Perfect!! The pool was gorgeous and mirrored the turquoise and dark blue colors of the ocean it overlooked. It was so stunning!! And again great service! The food was far far better than we expected at an all inclusive! Our concierge, Alex really and truly cared about us!!! He was so genuine and helpful! The entire staff was so kind and hard working it was beyond belief!! Our entire stay was restful, fun, restorative, delicious, and PERFECT!! Thank you to all at the Royal Hideaway! I can't wait to come back! More>

Fantastic resort, made even better by the amazing staff

We stayed at the Royal Hideaway for our honeymoon. It was near enough perfect. From when we arrived to when we left we felt incredibly pampered and truly like a happy couple should do on their honeymoon!! Brandon our concierge was brilliant, he really looked after us, always with a smile on his face and eager to help!!! The rest of the staff were also excellent and all the restaurants were great, with high quality food served everywhere and throughout the day. We especially enjoyed the grill restaurant!!!!! The evening menu was delicious and the staff there were particularly good, with Luis, Jorge and the chef deserving of special praise! The resort is truly a little gem, our room was spacious, clean, well equipped and well maintained. It has been a great honeymoon and we can't wait to be back. More>

Our 4th year in a row at Royal Hideaway Playacar

I really enjoy everything about this resort and have come the same week the last 4 years with a group of 4-5 couples. This is a quiet relaxing beach getaway with attentive staff and excellent food. If your looking for a party/nightlife this is not for you. Here is what I love about it: The rooms are comfy and well laid out. Variety of restaurants to choose from, recommend making your reservations for after 7pm dinner typically takes 2-3 hours. Vegetarian/allergy friendly - I let the resort know ahead of time that I have a sensitivity to dairy and the staff at every restaurant was careful to make sure that I did not accidentally order anything that contained dairy and they also modified dishes. There were always several vegetarian options on each menu and they were all very good. Some concerns I have: I understand that the resort is in a transition to new management but I would have liked to have been informed that they are in the process of doing renovations, was disappointed with the noise and dust during the day around our villa and that not all the fountains were running. A big reason why we love the Royal Hideaway is the pool is right on the beach, not in the center of the resort, they have recently planted palm trees on the beach in front of the pool which really changes the feel and the view. It might be great, but I will miss the unobstructed view of the beach and water. Our group has chosen to go back the last 3 years after looking at many other locations and resorts. I am hoping that the changes being made will not change the intimate feel of the resort or make the price out of our reach. In the 4 years we have been going we have had small frustrations with rooms not being as requested but the staff has always worked to correct any hiccups that have occurred and things were made right. We wouldn't have returned 4 times had it not been an excellent overall experience. More>

Awesome vacation!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Royal Hidaway. The rooms, service, pools, beach, food were all excellent. Alfonso, our concierge, provided all requests. Pool and beachside waitstaff were very attentive. Love to return here! More>
