The Sands' beach conditions

We'll be staying at the Sands 12/24-12/31. Does anyone know the condition of the beach/sand @ The Sands? Is there any beach left? Is swimming permitted?

How about the public snorkleing beach at Akumal? What condition is that in?

We could sure use some advice.

Thanks, Bev

Bev-Do a search on the Cancun forum and type in Royal Sands or Royal Resorts or any key word that would help you get your information. There is A LOT of beach info on this forum about the Royal Resorts. Do you know how to do a search? If not, someone can walk you through it.

In a nut shell, no beach at all at the Sands. You can use their sister resorts, all which have beaches.

I can't help you about the snorkeling. Sorry.

We are going to the Royal Sands in March. Are there any plans to bring sand in? I see that there are other areas where it has come back on its own.

Hubby works at the Sands and he says it is still not a "beach" but sand is coming back on it's own. There is a plan to start bringing sand into the beaches, should be starting any time now. They will be starting at Punta Cancun and working south, no idea how long it will take them to get to the Sands, though the whole project is expected to be about 8 months.
