Bring the Kids… and Your Dancing Shoes! Intimate as a boutique hotel. Minutes from the excitement of Cancún. Consider The Royal Cancun® your private sanctuary, along a sparkling white beach with kid-friendly surf and magnificent views. Your residence is so much more spacious than a hotel room, while having all the supporting services and engaging amenities of the finest hotels. Welcome to the ultimate beachfront escape, where there’s plenty of room for grandparents to share quality family time. Maybe they’ll even babysit while you’re out on the town!
The Rise of a Great Nation and a Popular Tourist Destination. While Mexico is rich in natural resources, cultural history and dramatic scenery, the people of this country have long been recognized for their gracious hospitality. As Mexico rose to one of the world’s Top 10 tourist destinations, the government launched a $223 billion National Infrastructure Plan to make travel more comfortable and efficient, as well as to secure the vitality of an economy expected to grow into the world’s seventh largest by 2050. The government invested billions in Cancún and the Riviera Maya to create a vigorous tourist economy, which contributes to rising land values as more people vacation here: • A modern international airport, offering more flights than any other Caribbean destination • Extensive water purification and water treatment systems to deliver world-leading drinking water while protecting the ecology • A network of four-lane highways that ease travel to major tourist sites • Investments in public safety that make this area as safe as Wyoming and Montana in many key categories With biodiversity that includes 10% of the world’s plant and animal species, along with the world’s most spectacular beaches, it’s no wonder more and more people are considering a real estate investment in Cancún and the Riviera Maya. The stage is now set with all the services you would expect of a world-class global destination.
Now’s the Time to Make this Crossroads the Center of Your World. Direct flights. Modern highways. Travel made easy. A little more than thirty years ago, the Yucatán was a sleepy tropical destination. Now it’s grown into one of the world’s most fascinating getaways. Why? Simple really. The beach stretches all the way to Belize. The balmy weather is so much more dependable than Florida, and with Cancún’s modern airport—offering the most direct flights in the Caribbean—it’s just as easy to get here. Now add more than $1 billion in government investment in projects such as water treatment plants and four-lane highways. One of the best airports in in Latin America. Modern medical facilities. And you come to understand the irresistible attraction of a tropical escape at the crossroads of the ancient and modern worlds. There’s simply no other place like it anywhere else in the world.
Satisfying Your Multiple Personalities: Sunbather, Intellectual and Weekend Adventurer. So much history. So much variety. So much fun! Discover activities to fill a lifetime. Of course, there’s the languid, relaxing rhythm of the surf and the blue, upon blue of this tropical sea. Once you’ve recharged, there’s so much to get up and do! Imagine ancient history revealed in some of the finest archeological sites on the planet. Then there’s the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere teeming with aquatic life. As if these wonders are not enough, ecological theme parks engage you and your family with nature, culture and a wildly fun time.
The Royal Yacht Club速. A quick ride from your beachfront villa takes you to the dock of The Royal Yacht Club. Feel like royalty cruising the lagoon on a spacious yacht. Or venture further out to sea and explore Isla Mujeres and dining at a fine island restaurant. Enjoy the leisurely cruise home as the sunset lights up sea and sky.
A Playground of Dazzling Blues and Shimmering Greens. World-class marinas and championship golf courses—close to home! Remember how hard you played and laughed as a kid on vacation with friends and family? The Royal Cancun® will reignite the magic. Fly over the ocean harnessed to a parasail. Throttle a wave runner through the calm lagoon. Skip across the waves on a sailboard. Fish for tackle-busting marlin. Snorkel among schools of brilliant tropical fish. Scuba dive into the world’s most fascinating depths. Why put up your golf clubs for an entire winter? We’ll help you stay in the swing of things and even provide the golf clubs. Tee off from championship greens into a round of golf that will delight with its mix of challenge and reward, while inspiring with the sheer beauty of the landscape. Come to where legends made their mark. Nicklaus, Norman, Fazio, Trent Jones, Weiskopf, Price and Dye have each contributed a dream destination.

The Beat Goes Onâ€Ś And On and On. Discover the sizzling center of Caribbean dining and nightlife.

Think of The Royal Cancun as your tranquil home base just minutes from nightlife that will keep you coming back for more year after year.
CancĂşnâ€™s Finest Family Beach. Finely crushed coral, washed ashore from the barrier reef, gives this beach its sparkling brilliance and soft texture, while reflecting the tropical heat to remain comfortably soothing.
Welcome to a Cancún icon. Welcome home. One of the first in one of the best locations. Few guessed that Cancún would grow into a world-class legacy destination. Except the founders of Royal Resorts. It’s said that the early bird gets the worm and these early founders were rewarded with the opportunity to invest in a prime location. In fact, several five-star resorts, having arrived later, had to settle for second-best locations. What’s so great about this beachfront setting? Well, everything. Isla Mujeres adds to the spectacular views as it breaks the incoming surf, creating Cancún’s most kid-friendly beach. Watch them splash and play. Watch them build castles, sea turtles and crocodiles out of this magnificent sand.
Guaranteed villas offer the same mesmerizing views year after year.

Your partner for life. At the end of the original 30-year trust period, Royal ResortsÂŽ delivered on its promise and returned every cent of The Royal Cancun membersâ€™ original investment. A remarkable 45% of members decided they couldnâ€™t part with a place they considered home, so they used the reimbursements as a credit towards a new trust purchase.
Feels like Home. Room for Everyone. An extra bedroom is just one bonus. Why jam into a vacation hotel? Spread out in a spacious ocean-view villa. Fix breakfast or lunch, even a romantic dinner, in the fully equipped kitchen. Eat in the dining room. Lounge on the patio. Each villa has been completely remodeled with new appliances and furnishings that reflect this sanctuaryâ€™s timeless charm. Got kids? Or guests? Sleep in while they enjoy cartoons, movies or sporting events in the living room or in their private bedroom. Relax on the patio and watch kids and teens play at the beach or in the pool. Life at The Royal Cancun is simply so much more relaxing than anywhere else!
When You’re Here You’re Family. A community spirit nurtured and refined over time. Go to any other resort and they’ll brag about things like the quality of the appliances, the pool and the restaurants. Of course we have everything you could ever want, all at the right price. What no other resort can give you is the quality of our community. Since we’re the only community offering guaranteed residences and weeks, you become part of a neighborhood of lifelong friends who share experiences and landmark events. And then there’s the icing on the cake: our staff. Gracious service is a Mexican tradition. They get to know you by name, and always go out of their way to deliver an uninterrupted vacation.

Above and beyond. True story. Three couples were happily playing cards past midnight when they noticed the icemaker in the refrigerator had quit. They called the front desk for more ice. Within ten minutes, they heard a knock at the door. To the couplesâ€™ surprise, two staff members appeared with a bag of ice, along with a new refrigerator.
Delivering the Royal Experience™ at Each and Every Royal Resort ®. Service that makes you feel like a member of the Royal Family. It all started more than 30 years ago during a casual conversation. Four retired air force officers and a group of Mexican businessmen developed a unique concept that became Royal Resorts. The idea was simple: Design communities with services that treat members the way these founders wanted to be treated on vacation. Today, the Royal Experience is our crowning achievement. By listening closely to members, we’ve developed and refined a proprietary program that trains staff in the fine art of personalized service. In addition, the Royal Academy offers an accredited adult education diploma program and English-language classes, helping staff build a career. As a result, some have been loyally serving families for more than twenty years.
Stress is a killer. The stress of working fifty, sixty or more hours a week, along with juggling kids and family activities, takes a heavy toll on body and mind. You feel worn out all the time. Vacation ownership helps ensure that you plan regular vacations every year.
Fun in the Sun Is the Best Remedy! The One Getaway that Takes a Load Off Your Mind. A vacation at The Royal Cancun is the best way to slow down and get your mind engaged with all the splendors of this spectacular tropical destination. Sunbathe on the beach or by the pool. Indulge in a rejuvenating massage. Rekindle romance in the Caribbeanâ€™s most exciting city. A week at the beach is better for you, better for your spouse and completely revitalizing for your entire family.
Buying at Royal Resorts has been one of our best family decisions. As an extensive world traveler, I can say, without doubt, that Royal Resorts delivers the best customer service in the world. At The Royal Cancun, we discovered a tradition free of worries in a safe, clean, friendly environment, where there are activities for everyone. Our kids just love it! Richard and Amy G. Woodland Hills, Utah • Member since 2003
I brought my daughter when she was just 10 months old. Even though Tara’s all grown up, she still considers Royal Resorts her home, and the staff part of her family. The people are wonderful and Royal Resorts has the best track record for service and quality of any resort. After coming for so many years, I now consider myself the Queen of Cancún! Dolores S. Warner Robins, Georgia • Member since 1977
The Royal Cancun is a Caribbean paradise. We’ve been coming back for more than 30 years—often more than once a year. Now grown, with families of their own, our children still look forward to joining us. Times have changed, but The Royal Cancun’s beautiful ambiance and relaxing atmosphere have remained intact. The idea of having a full staff catering to our well-being and enjoyment is unheard of elsewhere. Bernardo and Sharon S. Poughkeepsie, New York • Members since 1979
Having traveled around the world, we learned that and Royal Resorts is different from anywhere else. Staying at The Royal Cancun for four consecutive weeks, we’ve discovered that there are so many things to love. The staff remembers our name from year to year and treats us like family. And the sea is a beautiful turquoise blue and the sand so soft it feels like baby powder. Jeanne & Jerry P. Boulder, CO • Members since 2002
A Neighborhood of Friends Who Will Change Your Life. Such an incredible vacation experience that our members refer friends. We operate according to a simple philosophy. Treat guests very well and they’ll gladly come back year after year. Treat them like royalty and they’ll eagerly bring their friends to share the experience. That’s how we build a unique community that you’ll love to come home to year after year. Meet them down at the beach for yoga or coffee. Around the pool. In the restaurants. Pick up where conversations left off. Take a cab into the city for a night of clubbing, dancing or fine dining. Here’s where your vacation becomes integrated with your life. On this vacation, you’re not an anonymous stranger any more. Here, you’re part of the Royal Family.

Dr. Ragatz has been involved in more than 2,500 surveys in the United States and over 70 countries and to receive praise from him is an honor indeed.
