About The Royal Resorts Group
In 1974 the founders of Royal Resorts decided: "To build a vacation home that they themselves would like to own and to sell it in a way that they themselves would like to be sold." A Cancun pioneer, Royal Resorts started on this premise and is still guided by it today.
In 1977, construction began on the company's first resort Club Internacional de Cancun. The Royal Mayan opened in 1985, followed by The Royal Caribbean in 1988, The Royal Islander in 1993 and The Royal Sands & Spa in 2000. In 2006, Royal Resorts opened its first resort in the Riviera Maya, The Royal Haciendas, which is located in the Grand Coral beach and golf resort community, five minutes from Playa del Carmen. Additional resorts were added to the Royal Resorts Caribbean Collection in 1997 (Pelican Resort in St Maarten - now Simpson Bay Resort & Marina) 2001 (The Royal Sea Aquarium Resort in Curacao), 2007 (Pelican Marina Residences in St. Maarten - Simpson Bay Resort & Marina) now The Villas at Simpson Bay Resort & Marina.
Now with over 100,000 members, Royal Resorts has been among the top-rated resorts in the world since 1975. Our resorts have received the coveted Five Star Rating from Interval International every year since 1983 when the rating was first established. Since 2008, they have also been classified as Premier Resorts in the Interval International Resort recognition Program, the highest distinction awarded to resorts that offer an outstanding vacation experience.
The Timeshare Users Group first presented its annual Top Ten Worldwide Resort Awards in 1997. Out of 1,544 resorts rated, The Royal Islander, The Royal Caribbean and The Royal Mayan were all in the Top Ten. All three resorts have won awards for each year since and were joined by The Royal Sands in 2001 and The Royal Haciendas in 2008.
We are proud of our tradition of excellence and are committed to maintaining our high standards of service and quality. Always innovators, the developers of Royal Resorts operate their properties as five-star private clubs, limiting use to the members and other guests actually staying there.
