Tempting choices: seven nights of Royal Resorts dining

From seafood to Mexican cuisine, steaks to sushi, pizza and pasta, there’s something for everyone at Royal Resorts. Here is one seven-night Royal dining tour for you. There are many more to try and everyone has their favorite restaurants. As they say here in Mexico Buen provecho or Bon appetit!



You have just arrived and after a long flight you have worked up quite an appetite. How about Prime Rib night at Captain’s Cove? Tender beef cooked to perfection and a bottle of wine on the terrace, what a great start to your vacation.


Meet up with friends for an evening at El Conquistador in The Royal Islander. Enjoy delightful cuisine, a candlelit setting and music from master guitarist Jorge Duran, who is celebrating 31 years of performances at Royal Resorts.


For many long-time Royal Resorts visitors Monday night means one thing, Lobster night at The Royal Cancun. Enjoy grilled lobster at La Palapa overlooking the beach and watch the boats sail past on the bay. This is Caribbean life to be treasured.

    However, Monday night is also Mexican Night, with a tasty traditional buffet and live Mexican music in La Veranda at The Royal Sands and the popular Mexican Show at Captain’s Cove. 

   Mexican Night in the Captain’s Cove bar area includes a buffet, margaritas and a folk dance show.


For more delicious Mexican cuisine, Tuesday could be a very good day to visit Hacienda Sisal next to The Royal Sands. There’s a new Taco Tuesday promotion to try at lunchtime and plenty of tempting dishes to choose on the dinner menu. There’s live Mexican music on Tuesdays and Thursdays to listen to as you dine. 

   Also at The Royal Sands, try the Italian & Seafood night for freshly made pasta frutti di mare, shrimp fettuccine and other mouthwatering dishes


Wednesday night is Caribbean Night at Captain’s Cove.  Dine on island dishes such as Jamaican Jerk chicken, fried plantains and Cuban Ropa Vieja stewed beef from the buffet. Sip a daiquiri or mojito and watch the colorful, fast-paced Caribbean dance show. 

   As an alternative, there’s an Oriental Night at La Veranda in The Royal Sands with freshly made sushi, sashimi, kushiaguis, wok stir-fries and a selection of Chinese dishes on the buffet including almond chicken, sweet and sour pork, beef chop suey and Szechuan-style fish. 

   For more sushi, stop by the Sand Dollar on the terrace outside Sidelines Bar, also at The Royal Sands.


It’s time for the taste of Italy at La Trattoria, The Royal Cancun. Dine on flavorful salads, pizzas, freshly made pastas and traditional home-style dishes and be sure to save space for dessert.    

    As an alternative, why not try Paco’s Tacos in The Royal Islander for a casual fun supper of Mexico’s favorite street food, tacos?


Friday night might be the evening for a poolside cookout at The Royal Sands or a repeat visit to Captain’s Cove, El Conquistador or Hacienda Sisal for a farewell dinner with friends.

    Whatever your decision, with so much choice you’ll be able to plan your own Royal dining week.
