It is centrally located in the Hotel Zone and has good amenities. They have a tour operator, pool, spa/massage, hammocks, private beach, and restaurants. They have large two-bedroom suites, the type of room we stayed in. It is large, with two large bedrooms, a large Jacuzzi tub, and views of the ocean and pool. The food is very good, but honestly, we mostly ate outside of the hotel.
The lobby area is a bit small and can get congested, especially when there is "lobby entertainment." The tennis court has been converted into a stage/amphitheater for variety shows and a dinging area.
It is easily accessible by bus or taxi, and we usually go for walks on the sidewalk in front of the hotel towards the downtown area.
This is a high-end hotel and good overall. As I said before, just beware of the timeshare salespeople unless you know you will use it and make the most out of it.

The buffet serving three meals daily is good, but definitely visit the Atrium restaurant, it serves a five-course Italian meal with great food and desserts! You can only make reservations the day of, so get there early for a good seating!
The Royal Sunset has a great entertainment staff that has planned activities during the day and puts on great shows in the evening!

We got a kick out of leaving the terminal and seeing the shuttle driver standing at the bottom of the ramp holding a sign with our last name on it, ready to take us to the resort. During the short drive up Boulevard Kulkan the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea flanked you on your right and the Nichupte Lagoon to your left the entire way to the Royal Sunset Resort. At the resort a bellmen unloaded our luggage and directed us to the check in area where our personal concierge greeted us during check in. There was a 30-minute "Welcome Package" discussion where the concierge explained where everything was and how the all-inclusive package worked. She also showed us what activities were available outside the resort that were not included with our package, but available at a discounted price. From there we were directed to our room where our bags were already waiting for us.
One of the benefits of Royal Sunset is that every room has an unbelievable ocean view that also overlooks the pool. There is all day access to three on site restaurants and two bars. The resort also provided shuttle or boat transportation to the sister resort where you could also utilize their restaurant and bar locations. They even provided a free massage and lobster dinner during your stay.
The weather was incredible with the temperatures in the low 90’s and sunny. This was great for the nightly buffet theme show that was put on at the outside theater. Each morning there was a schedule of events slipped under the door outlining the many things available to do that day and informing us of the theme for the evening.
Overall the resort was a great last minute exchange and a great vacation destination. With great nightlife and shopping within walking distance this is exactly what an all-inclusive vacation should be, and we are looking forward to doing it again.
