    Weathered version of once great property

    I recently spent five days at this property and was not very impressed. The areas around the pools are riddled with rough and cracked concrete, and the tiles in the pool have no grout. I witnessed four separate incidents where people needed medical attention for cuts obtained while swimming or walking. There was a hole in the ceiling of the dining room the entire time we were there. The building walkways have cracked tiles and holes, some of which may or may not have been filled. Definitely bring something to protect your feet at all times. I also found that there are numerous five-star reviews that seem to have been submitted by staff I recognized from my stay. You will constantly be approached about upgrades to dining experiences, but good luck getting a reservation through the app.

    Can’t wait to go back!

    My family chose to splurge and be part of the diamond club; with this came a butler to help us out throughout our stay…and we could not have had anyone better than Fernando! Not only did he make sure we had our dinner reservations set, but he also ensured that we had a place by the pool with towels when we arrived, set us up for our excursion (the Mayan snorkeling was AMAZING), and made sure to help us celebrate my daughter’s birthday making it an extra special day for her! Speaking of which, the waiters at Agave stopped what they were doing in order to sing to her…and at 17 years old now, even she was impressed! The food was amazing; by far the best we have experienced at a resort. (Our personal favorite was the Taj restaurant!) The fitness room and poolside activities with them were spot on and the bartenders were friendly (especially Mateo), knowing our drinks before we had a chance to order them. The nighttime shows were all upbeat and amazing, as well—so much fun!! Can’t say enough about what a wonderful experience we had!

    Run From This Hotel - They Are Scammers

    Royalton is yet to refund us our money of almost $3,000. Run, Run, Run. The hotel is dirty, unkept, rude staff and to top it all, they have not given us our money back. I have sent multiple emails and nobody responds. We couldn't sleep in the hotel due to how dirty it is and refund was meant to take 5 days. It is almost a year now, and we have not gotten our refund.

    Absolutely won’t come back, very disappointed!

    To start I’m gonna be fair and say that the service and the food were good. The room was disgusting. Dirty towels, poorly maintained, Air condition it could be a lot better, blinds didn’t close correctly, doors of the cabinets were not good stayed open, cleaning needs a lot of help to say the least and overall disappointment. 100% not a room that I will pay 400+ dollars a night for.
