Live from The Royal

Hi all

We are here in Cancun staying at the very nice and plush - The Royal -

We were booked into the Gran Caribe but offered an upgrade for only $40 USD per night.... Well Worth it. The only thing you have to do for yourself is wash and get dressed.... Nice!!!

Gustav is on its way - but to be honest it will only bring rain and much needed cooler weather...

What an experiance..

As they say at the royal - Expect the Exceptional. And you do, you really do....

$40 per room is great. We were charged $80 and it was well worth it. Beware of the timeshare or "vacation club" people in the lobby. They are not as pushy as most, but you will be approached by several if you do the upgrade. I believe the reason they offer the cheap upgrade is because people are more vulnerable to purchase a vacation club membership while staying at a beautiful place like the Royal than at the Gran Caribe.

Hi jjohnboy32,

Aren't the rooms awesome? What room # did you get? Do you love it?

We stayed at The Royal for Christmas 2007 - totally awesome.

We loved Pelicanos for breakfast and lunch - please say Hi to "Ivan the Terrible."

Can you give us an update on the weather?

Have an wonderful vacation and stay safe.

Sharon

Glad to hear you got such a great deal at The Royal Cancun...it is wonderful!! Is Cesar around anymore? He did an amazing job around the pool cleaning sunglasses, serving frozen grapes, answering our many questions etc. I have heard people talking about Raphael but not Cesar...just wondering:)
