Cancun Caribe Park Royal Grand
Accommodations ( All Inclusive Resort ) | Foodie
Featuring a low-key personalized service
Featuring a low-key, personal-service ambience, the Cancun Caribe Park Royal Grand All Inclusive attracts couples and families seeking restful vacations during summer and holiday seasons. All Cancun beaches are public, but one 69-meter (75-yard) stretch fronting the hotel is isolated from public access, effectively providing guests a "private" beach with thatched-roof palapas for shade. A fieldstone sunning terrace furnished with padded lounge chairs and palapas contains a pool and a 12-person spa tub. The Laguna Conference Center (opened October 2007) offers 706 square meters (7,600 square feet) of event space. Two nightclubs, one built over Nichupte Lagoon and the other catering to older couples, lie across the street from the hotel.
Love Rock, a six-meter-high (20-foot) promontory and popular wedding site, divides the Cancun resort's beach frontage into a 100-meter (109-yard) segment and a 69-meter (75-yard) segment. Although all Cancun beaches are open to the public, Love Rock at one end and a bluff at the other make it difficult for outsiders to access the shorter stretch, effectively creating a tranquil "private" beach furnished with thatched-roof palapas for resort guests. A fieldstone sunning terrace furnished with padded lounge chairs and thatched-roof palapas features a 46-meter (150-foot) freeform pool and a 12-person spa tub. An independent operator, AquaWorld, rents boogie boards and snorkeling gear at the resort. Other independent operators offer personal watercraft and parasailing on the beach or nearby beaches. AquaWorld's main center is a marina 5.5 km (3.5 mi) away on Nichupte Lagoon, where many watersports are available, including parasailing, kayaking, personal watercraft, sailing, and windsurfing. AquaWorld also books fishing trips and scuba diving and snorkeling excursions. The 18-hole Pok-Ta-Pok Golf Club is 3.5 km (2.25 mi) from the resort, and the 18-hole Hilton golf course is 6.5 km (4 mi).
