... and as quickly as possible throw them on our bodies. We then realised the following day as we were relaxing in the ocean (clothed!) that not only the small crowd would've been able to see us, but the whole resort as the balconies face out to the sea... the things you think are a good idea after many tequilas! We laughed about this later - at least it made for a good story!

... see it was still pink so declined it, he took it straight back to the kitchen had it cooked for longer then bought it back to me. If there was anything on the menu that you really wanted you just had to ask and they made sure that some was brought out to you. They also did baked pineapple sprinkled with pineapple which was different, but nice. Another waitress went around the restaurant with a drinks trolley making cocktails ...

... hostels to stay at. When she discovered that Jon was here at the hostel also, she jumped to the conclusion that we were travelling together and seemed almost envious of that fact. She talked about a German girl she had been travelling with and mourned the fact that they had gone seperate ways - suddenly she seemed vulnerable and lonely after appearing so self-assured. I found myself wondering to what extent I will crave company when I really start to move around.

As the machine read out the phrase 'I am a man', he looked quite alarmed.. Until he realised it was in the iPad! Unfortunately the lessons get straight into conjugated verbs and seeing as I don't know the difference between verbs etc that makes things a little tricky. All good fun though. Hasty ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunset Royal Cancun Resort
We just returned last week from the Royal Sunset. We were actually reserved at Sunset Lagoon (sister resort) but a mix up on their part sent us to Royal Sunset. This was a nice surprise as Royal Sunset is much nicer, at least from the outside. Our room was very nice, the food was OK to good and the drinks were weak but just ask for a double shot. The staff was OK, not overly friendly but fine. We didn't pay much for our stay at the Royal Sunset so I won't base my review on expectations for a 6 star hotel. It was well worth the money we spent. The beach and pool are great!! Centrally located in town, right by Senior Frogs. Bus stops right outside and for .60 you can ride anywhere. I would recommend this resort as long as your not paying too much (more than 120/night all inclusive). Stay away from time share presentations. We talked to many people who regretted wasting a valuable Cancun day to these people! We didn't, just say no and enjoy your vacation. The time shares are a rip off. We were staying there for less than some peoples annual maintenance fees are! The free activity they offer you isn't worth it! Enjoy!
Nasty Food and Honeymoon from Hell
To start off, they did not have transpatation like they said they would Second we had an all inclussive but yet we had to pay 750.00 for 5 days? $65.00 a meal for one person...who eats that much...we got jipped!
The food sucked and my husband got sick 3 out of the 5 days. One beer....They didnt even have Corona??????? We spent three hours listening to a guy spill out all the B.S. on the timeshare...
The trip was a nightmare and needless to say we will never go to cancun again!!!
Beware of the time share
Hotel was clean but overcrowded. front desk folks not very friendly especialy if you want to check in before 4:pm. Definately do not buy their time share or any time share in Cancyun you will be wasting you money. I have a time share that i purchased last year and i was not able to get reservations for months. since my contract is a non inclusive contract. I refused to make payments on the time share untill they gave me reservations. Its a nightmare that I would not have anyone go through. They have two hotels only. the sunset lagoon and royal sunset, and 25,000 time share members. you figure the rest.
My husband and I along with 25 others went down March 2002 to get married. We had an amazing time. The staff knew most of our group by name by the end of our week, everything was great. Our wedding coordinator helped us all the way.
My husband and I have been time share owners at the Royal Sunset/Sunset Lagoon Hotels for the past five years. I sincerely advise anybody being approached by a timeshare sales person to avoid them (DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER IT). We find it extremely difficult to be able to get a reservation here (even though we paid over $12,000.00 for a studio unit when we bought in cash) They do not have an 800 number for the owners to call so therefore you have to run up very expensive phone calls in order to check on availability. You also sit on hold for awhile waiting to speak to a representative. Our phone bill last month was $87.00 for the three phone calls I had to make to find out the hotel was booked. When we bought we were told that owners would have priority (don't believe it) We usually go to Cancun once a year and due to being unable to secure rooms at either one of the resorts we have had to stay in other hotels. Adventura Palace, Royal Solaris, and Moon Palace.
Just returned from Cancun where we stayed at the Royal Sunset. Beautiful hotel/timeshare, but beware of the "land sharks" and the timeshare purchase pressure. We are already timeshare owners in Michigan and went to the Royal Sunset as an exchange, with NO idea that we would be pestered to buy a unit there. A three hour waste of our time, and it left a sour note on our trip for the rest of the week.
Well, where do I start?... You know how they say that your wedding is the most memorable part of your life?... You've got that right brother!... We got married last June (2001), and we set off for a destination that neither of us had been to. Beautiful Cancun... Our travel agent had good reviews about the Royal Sunset, well I don't know where she got her information from!! It started off right at the front desk, it was in the evening when we arrived,
My husband and I just got back from a vacation to Cancun. First, let me say that Cancun is not my idea of a perfect vacation destination, too touristy, too wild. Despite that we choice to go there very last minute because it wassuch a great deal. At first I was a little concerned that the hotel may be a dive because it was so inexpensive, but it wasn't. Now it is not the Ritz Carlton, but it is relatively new, clean and well maintained. The public areas are all nicely appointed, simple, but nice. The restaurants are all very nice. My husband and I especially liked the one right on the beach, wow what a great place to have your coffee in the morning. The pool and jacuzzi's were nice and clean and had ample chairs. Our room was basic,but nice. There was a small kitchenette (with a coffee maker, but you have to ask for cream and sugar), a breakfast area, sitting area and bed. The veiw was fabulous.
Our stay at the Royal Sunset in Cancun was the worst vacation we've ever had.
Royal Sunset Hotel ROCKS!!
For March Break 2002, I had the awesome opportunity to stay in Cancun at the ROYAL SUNSET HOTEL. I can tell you that it was the best hotel I've ever stayed in. All employees are extremely fair an courteous - very approachable. In a matter of days, you can be making friends with them! They treat all people equally, and encourage people of all ages to participate in their hourly activities by the pool and the beach - they do not exclude adults like TUCAN-CUN (another hotel) does. Food was terrific, pool is lovely, and the beach is the best beach in the hotel zone! Along with their all-inclusive package and their centralized location, I give this hotel a perfect score. I would DEFENITELY visit ROYAL SUNSET CANCUN again!!!
