"Kim’s condo was the perfect retreat for our one-week stay with young children. We were two families with one child each (17-months and 15-months).
Playa Royal is a beautiful property with freshly manicured grounds and a clean kiddie pool and adult pool. The property is more striking than the accurately posted pictures.
You are fairly secluded in this enclave, but it was perfect for our situation. This property has an older clientele and some families, and the only onsite restaurant is the beach club, which has limited hours. There are a handful of restaurants nearby or you can walk to the Paradise Village mall where you’ll find a small grocery store, Starbucks and a few more restaurants.
You have full access to all Paradise Village properties and amenities. We paid for the $18 weekly social membership at El Tigre, where we enjoyed the INDOOR kid’s playroom. There is a small outdoor playground at the Paradise Village Beach Resort. These were important elements for our “perfect family gateway.”
The condo is also nice and simply decorated. The unit was easy to maintain during our stay and it felt safe. One thing to note is that the master bedroom faces outward toward the grounds and beach while the other bedroom faces the hallway. Not a huge deal, but it is worth mentioning only because we were traveling with another couple and at first glance one bedroom and bathroom felt superior to the other. That being said, the back bedroom remained cooler and there was less outside noise so it was fine. And, though the second bath hosts the washer/dryer it has two entry ways.
Kim is very thoughtful about the items you’ll need for a beach vacation – the closet includes beach towels, boggie boards, beach chair mats, etc. She also has a small selection of board games and books. The kitchen includes all the basics.
Things to note:
1) Housekeeping is conducted by an outside company; work with Kim to set cleaning up in advance.
2) Request additional bath towels in advance; only 4 large towels were provided even though there were six occupants listed on the rental agreement.
3) This is a condo complex not a hotel, though there is a concierge, front desk staff, beach restaurant, etc to make your stay more pleasant. The staff is very nice and helpful. Check in and out was easy.
Kim is very easy to work with. All of our questions were answered in a timely matter and Kim provided helpful information in advance of our stay."

"Great location, comfortable furnishings and the most well stocked kitchen for supplies, utensils and small appliances that I have ever seen in a rental unit. Computer in unit an added plus. Loved the larger pool in the T-4 section. Swam 25 of 29 AMs at 600m each day. It was close to our friends in T-5 and brother-in-law in LUMA. It was our 6th time to Playa Royale and couldn't have been better."

"It was a great vacation, the hotel very nice and clean, we had a great time.
The condo is just like the pictures, it's nice, clean, the beds are comfortable, and it's very well equipped, it has everything you need to have a relaxing and beautiful vacation.
The best was working with Paul, he was very helpful in every way, even the details, and I like a lot that he was fast with the response of every communication we had, and he was always available.
My wife and kids enjoyed this vacations a lot!"

"We really enjoyed our stay at Playa Royale. The pools and beach are great, and there are several great restaurants within walking distance. We loved the spaciousness of the unit with the separate bedrooms for our child and separate shower. The view from the balcony was wonderful. The only issue we had was that both shower doors were very worn and difficult to open. We would definitely return- it was a wonderful and relaxing vaction."
