About Dave Kalmbach

We love going to Cancun and staying at our condo. The climate and location are unbeatable but what really makes it are the locals and the Royal Hotel Staff. When you arrive its Welcome Home time..

Dave Kalmbach purchased this condo in 1990

Why Dave Kalmbach chose Hotel Zone

There are only a few Penthouse Units at this resort. Besides having unparalleled views the Penthouse is larger than the standard units. The condo is located on the highest portion of the Island so the views are exceptional. The sand at this resort gorgeous. The resort is built back from the main road so its away from traffic and the bar crowds. Its very much a family resort, yet you are just a free shuttle bus away from other sister Resorts like the Royal Sands which is near the main shopping and dining districts.

What makes this condo unique

There are over 1700 reviews on Tripadvisor for this resort..Its a Certificate of Excellence Awards Resort

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a week in The Royal Islander and was very satisfied. Staff is geat and allways friendly and polite.

Roomsizes are amazing. Had (as solo-guest) a double-room with 2 Double-beds. a separate bath-/ restroom, irinonig equipment, coffe-maker a.s.o.

I can honestly recommend this place.

Mostly Good

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week with my husband, daughter and 3 of her college friends. We had a two bedroom suite with kitchen and living area which worked out perfectly. The large covered outside deck with tables and chairs was used a lot. We were on the 6th floor and had a nice view of the ocean and the pool. The resort is one of the cleanest I have ever stayed at in Mexico, and we have been 13 times. The on-site store was very reasonably priced and had most of what we needed, just lacking in a large selection of fresh fruits, vegetables and meats. However, if you do plan to do a lot of cooking you can get to the Walmart by bus or cab. There is a pharmacy across the road that carries anything might need along that line. There is only one on-site restaurant that is better for breakfast and lunch than for dinner in my opinion, but plenty of access to other restaurants by bus and cab. There is also a carry-out food area that serves the pool and beach. I understood their pizza was very good although I did not have any. There is also an coffee shop that makes lattes, espresso, etc. We had no problem getting served both drinks and food at the pool or beach, and contrary to what we read, we were always able to find chairs. There is a free activity center where you can get volleyballs, beach balls, fins, tubes, towels and other items to use - you just have to turn them back in to avoid charges. The beach was rough most days when we were there, but you can walk down to areas that are calmer, and the lifeguards are vigilant. English is spoken pretty much everywhere if you are concerned about that. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was very nice. I did not rate it a 5 for two reasons: one, the resort is way to quiet for me. No music at the pool, and very few activities, including night-time, and two, the dinner food at the restaurant was just fair. Those of you who have not been to Mexico, my few general suggestions are ALWAYS arrange airport transportation before you get there and pay the extra for private service. They will try to pick you up 3 1/2 hours before your flight and that is just not necessary. 2 1/2 hours at peak season is what I recommend, although that is still LOTS of extra time, and 2 hours off season. Get signed up for a credit card that doesn't charge foreign exchange fees and use it. Most places take credit, debit, and US dollars. Get VIBER on your phone to avoid fees for calling and texting.
