Upon entering the new Royalton Suites Cancun Resort and Spa, it becomes apparent that there’s an abundance of breathtaking moments in and around the resort.

Thanks to Sunwing, I was happy to arrive in Cancun to spend the weekend not worrying about anything but sunshine. The amazing Royalton staff guided me through a stay that was filled with diverse dining experiences, a state of the art spa, excursions to beautiful islands, rooftop pools, and a true 5-star room with a 10-star view.

Though Sunwing has expanded over the years, it continues to run as a close-knit boutique brand offering dreamy destinations at affordable rates. Flights to Mexico depart from 21 different Canadian airports. These trips also offer the opportunity to add Sunwing Experiences – paragliding, venturing off the resort. spending a day out on the luxury Catamaran’s, and other engaging excursions. Flying Elite Plus is also a must as it ensures extra legroom, complimentary seat selection, and priority boarding.

The Royalton Cancun should be known for its glass infrastructure.

This allows the beautiful ocean and sky to act as a wall rather, immersing you completely in the tropical outdoors while inside the contemporary hotel. With 175 suites, the shoreline spans as far as the eye can see. All rooms have an ocean view and are equipped with 24hr hour room service and a complimentary fully-stocked bar.  Navigate your trip with the savvy television that provides every detail about the happenings of the hotel, allowing you to book a spa appointment, dinner date or excursion all on the big screen.  

The ultimate oasis.

My personal take on luxury was taken up a notch with exclusive access to the Diamond Club private rooftop terrace which offers butler service, cabanas, an infinity pool, hot tub, a-la-carte restaurant, and a massive well-stocked bar.  This 18+ sanctuary is complete with a stunning 360-degree view of the Carribean sea.



The Royalton is situated just steps from downtown Cancun, where memories are sure to be made. Our last night was spent in the midst of the bustling streets amongst the lively nightlife, with a diverse crowd of visitors and locals. There is an abundance of places to choose from where you’ll be guaranteed to find the spot that suits your preferred atmosphere, whether you’re looking for a lively dancefloor, authentic eats or a low-key lounge.  And the myriad of shops close to the Royalton, make this hotel the perfect getaway to also experience the local culture.

The dining experience was vast and indulgent. French toast on the private balcony with the breathtaking ocean view was a hard toss up against the glass-enclosed buffet restaurant.  Dinner was just as memorable, with steaks cooking tableside on marble plaques or an authentic Mexican dining experience at restaurant Agave.

Sunwing ensures that the experience of an all-inclusive hits as many touch points as possible. The Royalton Suites Cancun provided relaxation and activity equally, which gave guests the ability to curate their own trips based on their desired pace and personal interests.

Our final and lasting memory was our excursion to the Isla Mujeres; a sanctuary away from the resort. The boat ride made a stop for beautiful snorkeling before continuing on the crystal blue waters to our final destination. We ate from the outdoor eatery serving fresh grilled pineapple and assorted meats, paired with a taco bar and margarita station.

It’s time to explore Mexico through the lens of this luxury 5-star escape. What are you waiting for?
