Resort Profile

A relatively new, enormous 840-room resort with top-notch swimming pool areas and superior fitness options, the all-inclusive Royalton Riviera Cancun between Puerto Morelos and Cancun opened its doors in 2014 and caters well to both families and couples (couples should also consider the adults-only Hideaway section of the resort, booked separately). It can be difficult to reserve lounge chairs at peak times of year, the grounds may feel too big for some, and off-site shops and restaurants are lacking in the area; but the resort offers an incredible 11 swimming pools, outstanding swim-up bars, a strong beach area with a good amount of space, a chic spa with a hydrotherapy circuit, an impressive 9 restaurants and 13 bars with excellent food and drinks for an all-inclusive, a top-notch teens club with billiards and other games, a splash park and kids club for younger children, and easy airport access. Other perks include free Wi-Fi throughout the entire resort, reservation-free dining, and an excellent sports bar with a “Sports Event Guarantee,” which ensures coverage of all major North American and international games and matches. The state-of-the-art accommodations live up to expectations; they truly have the feel of a brand new luxury resort. The fitness facilities are first-rate as well, and there’s a variety of fitness classes including sunrise and sunset yoga, TRX, spin, kickboxing, CrossFit, Pilates, and Zumba. Other activities include scuba diving, parasailing, sailing, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, and adventure tours to nearby Mayan ruins and cenotes. The adults-only Hideaway section (again, booked separately) offers guests access to an exclusive restaurant, bar, and pool area, as well as access to all facilities of the greater complex.

Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site for guests staying a minimum of three nights and returning to the United States.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
