This was our first time to this resort and we were immediately disappointed by the quality of food and drinks at this resort. Upon check-in, we went to lunch where we had "soupy" nachos, scaly fish, and under cooked fajitas. We were sad to hear that this was the only restaurant on the property that did breakfast and lunch. The "luxury pool" was merely a pond that if more than 4 people are there, its already crowded. Drinks were very strong, and then asked to scale down the liquor a little bit, got them "virgin style," with literally 0 alcohol in them. Luckily, I was able to reach an Expedia rep and help me find another resort in the area to move to and enjoy my vacation. Very disappointed in this resort.

Most unusual problem that I don't know how we could have avoided. A/C sucked pretty much everywhere. Our room never really got cool. Asked twice and staff responded politely, but nothing changed. The dinner's were all indoors no options and pants required for guys, but temperature pushed into 90's so just a terrible situation. I'd suggest Expedia de-list Royal Hideaway Playcar forcing management to address. The staff were great and everything else as well, but without working a/c's Mexico resorts just ain't right.

My husband I took a romantic getaway to Playa del Carmen and stayed at the Royal Hideaway for 7 nights, our first time staying at this property. We travel often so I am comparing past travel experiences to the one we just the Royal Hideaway. As someone who reads every review possible about the property, the guest experiences, customer service, food, activities all the research to make sure our experience is enjoyable. We made our decision to stay at this at this Five Star/4 Diamond resort based on the reviews and the experiences that others had during their stays. I am sorry to say that the experience that we had was not the same experience as posted by many guests that had great experiences and posted positive reviews. We ran into multiple returning guests of the Royal Hideaway who have been staying there many years, each with incredible previous stays and stories about the exceptional service. I feel that for us the Royal Hideaway missed their mark of providing that excellent customer service experience that I read about and listened to. I would like to mention some of the staff that I thought stood out to me and would like to suggest looking or asking for these people: Alberto, The Deck – Antonio, The Grill - Hugo, Bar Allegria – Alejandra, Server at the pool bar – Javier and for activities Carlos & Mercedes.

We have been to the Royal Hideaway over 13 times. We have taken friends and family another 5. The restaurants and wait staff were amazing. The bellmen have been there for years and were awesome. That was the only good we found. We didn’t sleep one full night. Our room was over 80. We complained and were told we had to run the blower continuously. That just moved the hot air around. We slept by the pool during the day. We only got room service for coffee twice in the seven days. They either didn’t answer or didn’t deliver. Every night but two when we arrived for our dinner reservation we were told we didn’t have one. We started taking our itinerary. The grounds were the worst ever. They stopped watering so everything was dry. My husband picked up three loads of trash in the trees around the serenity pool. We asked to be moved after the first night but that was ignored so we just let it go. When we checked out we weren’t even asked how our stay was. She was quite rude. Sad to say we will never return.
