Things to See and Do While Staying at The Royal Islander

Cancun provides many interesting recreational possibilities, particularly for those booking an oceanfront vacation spot like this one. The Royal Islander is one of the best properties in the area for those who crave entertainment and to give new activities a try.

There is one pool at The Royal Islander. Swimming may not be an essential part of your vacation, but it's a hassle-free way to re-energize before nightfall. Also, these accommodations are found right next to the water, so there's a few different places to cool off in the sun while visiting.

Dedicated travelers who want to maintain their shape during vacation can do so at The Royal Islander; you'll find everything you need at their on-site exercise facility.

Tennis

This resort is a perfect fit for tennis buffs, considering visitors staying here can spend some time on the court without leaving the property. Guests probably won't have any trouble claiming a court, considering that there are 12 courts on-site. Plus, the courts here are equipped with lighting so you'll never have to cut your match short.

If you're interested in other places to stay like this, you may wish to compare this property to other hotels in the area that also have courts, including Royal Caribbean and JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa.

Golf

Though The Royal Islander does not have a golf course, it's possible that you could make arrangements to play a round or two during your stay. The area's closest courses are Paradisus Cancun Golf Club, Oasis Cancun Golf Club, and Iberostar Cancun Golf Course. Each is within a mile and the most proximate of the group, Iberostar Cancun Golf Course, is just a small distance away from the lodging, so it won't be hard to plan a quick trip for a few rounds of golf. It has a total of 18 holes. It's a par 72 course, and is 6261 yards long. If you'd like to see if it is possible to schedule a tee time, contact the course at (998) 881-8000.
