Sharon and Bernardo S. from Poughkeepsie, New York have been Royal Resorts members for 37 years. Sharon tells the story: “We were invited to VCI or The Royal Cancun by friends about 37 years ago. “We loved it so much we purchased two weeks and we are still here, although we now vacation at The Royal Sands and The Royal Haciendas.”
“In the early years at The Royal Cancun it was so quiet and peaceful, it was perfect for families and the people there were absolutely wonderful,” Sharon adds. “We are now three generations and coming here is our family time together. Our children and grandchildren love it as much as we do and they never want to leave. We really feel as though we are coming home, we find it relaxing and luxurious, a place where you can truly unwind.”
“One of my sons and his family live in West Virginia and the rest of us are in New York State,” explains Sharon. “Due to the distance, we don’t see that much of them and our summer vacation at Royal Resorts is our chance to spend precious time together. It also gives our children time to catch up with each other and our grandchildren get to know their cousins better.
“There are beautiful beaches elsewhere in the world but the warmth of the people makes this place unique. We are really made to feel at home and are always treated royally.
“We have so many special Royal Resorts memories,” says Sharon. “Bernardo remembers being taught how to sail a Sunfish out on the bay at The Royal Cancun by a member called Bob Hinz and in turn he has taught many other members and guests. Our eldest son proposed to his girlfriend at The Royal Sands and we celebrated our golden wedding anniversary at the resort.
“If I have a message for fellow members it would be this: we have been members of Royal Resorts for more than 30 years. We visit the Cancun resorts or The Royal Haciendas twice a year so that we can say that we have been here 50 times or more. You really have to like a place to say that!”
“My message to Royal Resorts and the staff would be to keep doing what you have been doing for the last 40 years. We have traveled widely and have found nothing that compares for luxury and space with Royal Resorts for family vacations. We just love it.”
