On your next trip to Royal Resorts call in at The Royal Market to see what’s new. If you are staying at The Royal Sands, you’ll be able to sip your favorite Starbucks coffee and nibble a cake or freshly baked pastry on a comfy sofa in the newly redesigned Royal Roast Coffee Co.

New to all the resort stores are herb, oatmeal, tomato and Parmesan cheese baguettes and the Samper line of deli meats (roast beef, pastrami, ham and salami, among others) for delicious sandwiches. If you are weight-conscious, substitute sugar with Mayan Sweet Stevia and Chai tea sweetened with stevia.

Don’t miss the wine tastings on Monday from 4 to 6 p.m. at all stores except the Captain’s Cove branch. You can also try Doña Pura sauces, a Mexican brand of gourmet salsas, on Saturday and Monday, ask for tasting times.

Keep in touch with your friends back home. The Royal Market now stocks SIM cards and chips for mobile phones.

Start planning for your next vacation by ordering groceries online using the Kitchen Starter Kit and The Royal Market staff will deliver them to your villa the day you arrive. Save yourself the hassle of a supermarket trip and head straight to the beach.
