Founded in Cancun in 1975, Royal Resorts is a pioneer in Mexican tourism and a leader in the international vacation ownership industry.

Five Royal Resorts in Cancun

In 1977, construction began on the company's first private family club, The Royal Cancun (formerly Club Internacional de Cancun). It proved so popular that over the years four more followed: The Royal Mayan in 1985, The Royal Caribbean in 1988, The Royal Islander in 1993 and The Royal Sands in 2000.

Royal Resorts in the Riviera Maya

Expansion continued in 2006 with the opening of the first phase of The Royal Haciendas, a state of the art resort located in the Grand Coral golf and resort community at the heart of the Riviera Maya, five minutes north of Playa del Carmen. All 252 units and all amenities were completed as of December 2009.

Spacious Self-Catering Villas & Five-star Resort Services

All the Royal Resorts are beachfront properties offering accommodation in spacious and fully equipped two-bedroom units, and five-star amenities ranging from pools, tennis courts, water sports, an activity program for children and adults, and a spa and gym to restaurants, bars, convenience stores, travel and car rental desks. Operated as private clubs with 24-hour security and daily maid service, they are the perfect family getaway; in fact many members call them their home away from home.

Grand Residences

The newest resort to be added to the Royal Resorts collection over the next four years is Grand Residences by Royal Resorts, its first deluxe 120-unit full-time and fractional condominium project at Riviera Morelos, a resort and residential community just to the south of Puerto Morelos. Grand Residences features fully furnished and larger two, three and four bedroom condominium units as well as a stellar array of resort services and amenities.

International Accolades

Royal Resorts has sold nearly 100,000 memberships to residents from 51 countries at its resorts in Cancún and the Riviera Maya, and independent surveys report a 97 percent member satisfaction rate, one of the highest ratings received in the vacation ownership industry worldwide.

The company has received numerous accolades including the coveted Five Star Award, given by Interval International (www.intervalworld.com) every year since the award's inception in 1984. In the new Interval International Resort Recognition Program introduced in 2008, the Royal Resorts are classified as Premier Resorts, the highest distinction, only awarded to properties that offer an exceptional vacation experience and state of the art services. Other Interval International awards attained by the company include the Superior Services Award given to resort management in recognition of the work of staff in providing service that exceeds the expectations of guests, and the Chairman's Club, an honor bestowed upon the top companies in the field of marketing and sales for their contribution to new member enrollments with Interval International.
