Dining at The Royal Haciendas

Here’s the latest Royal Resorts dining news from our Riviera Maya resort.

• New Asian restaurant opening this spring
Opening at the end of March and serving a tempting selection of dishes from Japan, China, Thailand, Korea and Vietnam, the new Asian restaurant will be located in the lobby opposite La Rotonda. It will have two teppanyaki tables and a small show kitchen area where diners can watch chefs at work preparing sushi, stir-fries and other mouthwatering recipes.

The name of the new restaurant is being chosen from options submitted by staff at the resort.

A new face at The Royal Haciendas
Meet Pablo Chuc, the new Restaurant Manager at The Royal Haciendas, a longtime member of the Royal Resorts family and a familiar face to many members who also own at The Royal Sands or The Royal Islander.

Pablo joined Royal Resorts in 1993 and his first job was at The Royal Mayan, followed by The Royal Caribbean and The Royal Islander where he was the Cayo Largo Manager for four years. In 2006, he moved to The Royal Sands as Restaurant Manager and this career move to our Riviera Maya resort is another promotion for him. Pablo rejoins Chef Erika Barrios who was also at The Royal Sands. They are a great team and we are sure that they have plans for many tempting dining options for members and guests to enjoy.

• New Taco Station in Phase 2
The taco station in Phase 2 at The Royal Haciendas is another new dining option that is proving very popular with members and guests.
