Royal Resorts is pleased to present the REFINE Package Collection, an exclusive selection of experiences and activities designed to enrich your vacation. We understand that each family has different vacation needs and desires and we have designed an outstanding selection of unique packages that will enable you to tailor your vacation and truly make it your own. Enjoying all that Royal Resorts, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have to offer, including activities that you may never have tried before, will now be within your grasp. Imagine the possibilities.
The REFINE Package Collection has two components: our exclusive REFINE All-Inclusive Package and REFINE Special Packages.
With a REFINE All-Inclusive Package you’ll enjoy our time-honored hospitality and an array of five-star amenities at The Royal Sands in Cancun and The Royal Haciendas in the Riviera Maya. Indulge with tempting gourmet cuisine, cocktails and endless activities and entertainment, day and night. Celebrate life’s many pleasures with family and friends.
The REFINE All-Inclusive Package will always be optional for members and their guests. It will be mandatory for non-members who rent or exchange into The Royal Sands or The Royal Haciendas.
*Because of the nature of our establishment the REFINE All-Inclusive Package may or may not include accommodation.
Add even more touches of luxury and indulgence to your vacation with REFINE Special Packages. This exclusive collection of spa therapies, golf days, tours and activities offers something for everyone, from unforgettable family time spent in the area’s famous nature parks to scuba diving, day trips and island cruises. Relax and unwind with a Pure Indulgence Package at the Spa, discover the Mayan culture with our Experiences Collection, get out on the fairway with a Golf Package, and celebrate your love with a Romance Package.
REFINE Special Packages will be optional for Royal Resorts members and for non-members.
The REFINE All-Inclusive Package will only be available at The Royal Sands and The Royal Haciendas. The REFINE Special Packages will be available at all Royal Resorts.

No. The REFINE All-Inclusive Package will be optional for all guests staying in a members’ unit with or without the member being present, i.e. staying as an Owner Loan.
No, the REFINE All-Inclusive Package will be optional for Members unless they acquire the units through an online travel agency, i.e. Expedia, Orbitz.
Yes as long as the member is staying at the same resort during the same dates. However, members will have a limit on the number of additional units they can rent for third parties without the REFINE All-Inclusive Package being mandatory. Members will be allowed to rent as many additional units for third parties as they show in their membership agreement without the All-Inclusive being mandatory. That is, each membership agreement allows for one rental week for a third party. Once they exceed this limit, guests will have to purchase the REFINE All-Inclusive Package. For example, if a member owns weeks 21 and 22, they will be allowed to rent up to two additional units for third parties without a mandatory All-Inclusive Package.
The member may rent an unlimited number of units without a mandatory REFINE All-Inclusive Package if the member is staying in the unit. If the member is renting for a third party then the member will have a limited number of additional units they can rent without a mandatory all-inclusive package (see answer to question 9).
Yes. The REFINE All-Inclusive Package will be mandatory for timeshare owners who do not own at Royal Resorts and are vacationing at The Royal Sands or The Royal Haciendas through an International Exchange company.
No, this new program does not affect existing reservations made before July 3, 2012, regardless of the occupancy date.
Yes, the Guest will have optional access to the REFINE All-Inclusive Package. This policy is only valid if the Royal Resorts Member uses a Royal Resorts week for the exchange. If he/she uses a week which is not one of their Royal Resorts membership weeks, this courtesy cannot be granted. Only one Guest Certificate per Royal Resorts membership agreement is allowed. In other words, for each week owned, one Guest Certificate can be given to a non-member who will have optional access to the REFINE All-Inclusive Package.
The resort atmosphere will not change. The quality standards we are known for will be maintained and we will continue to adhere to resort regulations and guidelines published in Resort Tips; as an example antisocial behavior will not be tolerated and management will reserve the right to refuse serving alcohol to anyone who is visibly impaired. What will change is that more people will be enjoying the excellent quality and services provided at our restaurants and this will allow us to pass on discounts to our valued members and to benefit our staff.
The resort facilities and amenities are designed to accommodate maximum occupancy. We do expect the program to bring more guests to the resorts. We look to increase our occupancy but only to a level where we can operate and manage the resorts and its services with the same quality standards.
Your annual Club Service Fee will not be affected in any way.
Reservations are required for dining at Hacienda Sisal, Captain’s Cove and El Conquistador restaurants in Cancun and Los Murales at The Royal Haciendas and are subject to availability.
Extensive research and competitive analysis was conducted in-house and by third parties prior to making the decision to launch the REFINE All-Inclusive Package at The Royal Haciendas and The Royal Sands. The facilities are considered more than adequate for this program.
Members not participating in the REFINE All-Inclusive option will continue to receive the same high quality standards and value they experienced previously.
As in the regular hotel market, there is a wide range of all-inclusive offerings, from low budget properties all the way up to ultra-luxurious resorts with gourmet all-inclusive meal packages. Royal Resorts is internationally recognized as having some of the highest rated vacation ownership resorts in the world. It is our aim to provide an all-inclusive program that is always optional for Members, and that competes in the 4.5 to 5-star categories. Royal Resorts will ensure that food and beverages sold at the resorts have the same quality as those currently offered at the resort restaurants.
The following Premium dishes and drinks are not included in the REFINE All-Inclusive package but are available at additional cost:
• Lobster • Selected prime cuts of beef • Chilean sea bass • Fresh tuna • Dishes prepared tableside • Flambéed desserts & specialty coffees • Premium drinks & wines
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are included in the REFINE All-Inclusive Package. Please note, however, that special events such New Year’s Eve Party and other seasonal events organized at participating restaurants and bars are not included in the REFINE All-Inclusive package but may be booked subject to availability and at an additional cost.
