If your idea of vacation is relaxing with a cold drink along the shores of the Caribbean upon meticulously groomed, white sandy beaches while feeling the tropical sea breeze on your skin and relaxing beneath a straw cabana, your day will be complete at The Royal Mayan Vacation Resort. The gorgeous beach is bordered with lushly landscaped grounds and spacious sun decks furnished with loungers. Elegantly decorated, culturally inspiring villas and suites and a five-star staff make you feel pampered and appreciated. Amazing restaurants impress and keep you pleasantly satisfied while memory-making ocean views, lavish, lagoon-style pools, inviting thatched huts and poolside bars will make you want to return again and again.
Guests at The Royal Mayan have the unique opportunity to experience an archaeological site just outside their doorsteps. San Miguelito, a small Mayan ruin, is located in the jungle between the resort and the Kukulcan Blvd. The ruins date back to the Post-Classic period of Mayan history (A.D. 900-1521) when Cancun was originally settled by traders, farmers and fishermen.
One of the most characteristic aspects of The Royal Myan is the rich, cultural décor, accentuated with authentic Mayan details such as woodcarvings, stained glass, woven throws and apholstry. Choose a two-bedroom villa that sleeps six or a one-bedroom suite for up to four people. Spacious, nicely decorated villas feature murphy beds that stow away for even more living area by day. Reservations include free Cancun round-trip airport transfers for up to six people. Check-in and check-out are a breeze. Not only are the staff friendly and professional, they're warm, inviting and accomodating as well.
