Legendary Acapulco is still one of the most famous vacation spots anywhere in the world.
And the Park Royal does Acapulco with the same manic attention to detail, fanatical cleaning and non-stop service from the moment you arrive. All-Inclusive, the Park Royal Acapulco is also self-contained, safe and long on relaxation despite a landscape that's challenging at best. There's even a funicular train to conquer the worst of it. Plenty of custom masonry recall a more mountainous resort, but this is a beach city and fantastic views from the lobby and main restaurant leave no doubt.
There are two swimming pools, one exclusively for adults, a lavish solarium overlooking everything, and Italian and seafood specialty restaurants. The fully equipped Spa & Fitness Center counts with a sauna, steam room and massage and treatments center including aromatherapy and reflexology.
If you haven't been to Acapulco in a while, you'll be surprised by how much has changed, and Royal Holiday has the very best of Acapulco packaged up for you today.

What Acapulco undoubtedly has going for it, is its stunning bay: a sweeping scythe-stroke of yellow sand backed by the white towers of the high-rise hotels and, behind them, the green jungle foothills of the Sierra. Even though there are hundreds of thousands of people here throughout the year, most of the big hotels remain nearly full - it rarely seems oppressively crowded. Certainly there's always space to lie somewhere along the beach, partly because of its sheer size, partly because of the number of rival attractions from hotel pools to parasailing and "romantic" cruises.
By day, if people aren't at the beach or asleep, they're mostly shopping. If you only do one thing in Acapulco, though, make sure you see its most celebrated spectacle, the leap of the daredevil high divers at La Quebrada. About the only place in Acapulco that gives even the slightest sense of the historic role the city played in Mexico's past is the Acapulco Museum in the old town. It's situated inside the Fuerte de San Diego, an impressive, if heavily restored, star-shaped fort built in 1616 to protect the Manila galleons from foreign corsairs.
Along the Costera, downtown is packed with shops, restaurants and a futuristic discos. It is also home to the Centro Cultural, which has an art gallery, a crafts store and a theatre and also hosts a regular program of cultural events with a regional bias. Geared up for bored kids, the Parque Papagayo on Costera at Playa Hornos, offers boating, roller-skating and fairground rides. Further east round the bay, near the Centro Acapulco, the aquatic park CICI has water-based rides and puts on dolphin shows. Your kids will love it!

Another long-time favorite with Royal Holiday travelers from decades gone by, the Park Royal Los Cabos has been receiving enthusiastic, even devoted members since the 1980s. Many of them travel here every year - year after year.
Literally straddling the Los Cabos Fonatur Golf Course, the resort offers a first class restaurant, Jacuzzis, two heavenly swimming pools, spacious terraces and equipped kitchenettes. Full service, you also get air conditioning, satellite color TV and on-site laundry, parking, car & motorcycle rentals, and easy access to fishing and whale watching exhibitions.
Guests can purchase day passes to the nearby Ola Gran Faro for full use of the facilities including meals, buffet lunches, snacks and domestic beverages. Come see what makes the Park Royal Los Cabos so popular with guests from all over the world.
Retorno Playa Añuiti No.27, Col. Campo de Golf, San José del Cabo, Baja California, 23400, México.
The two towns of Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas are famous the world over for the intriguing, startling and thought provoking combination of ocean, desert and mountains. We might add the super charming colonial look and feel of San Jose del Cabo, or even the sometimes hyper-modernity of Cab San Lucas.
San Jose del Cabo, the decidedly more tranquil of the two towns of Los Cabos, is an artsy, sophisticated and very laid back town. Loads of coffee shops meet galleries, boutiques and fancy little eateries, and all in a setting sure to stand out in your memory. The play of the elements, atmosphere and never-ending natural beauty, make it one of the most popular places of the Baja California peninsula. It’s a chic alternative to the much more touristed Cabo San Lucas.
Very few beaches on the peninsular are truly safe for swimming, so Royal Holiday guests shack up in the Park Royal Los Cabos for outstanding service and lots of room, and many of them stay literally two to three weeks every year. Vacations include desert hikes, chartered van trips to Cabo San Lucas and all kinds of boat trips, to see the famous arch, the whales and the dolphins.
With miles of rugged coast and beach facing the always dramatic Gulf of California, a vacation here usually includes long days at sea as well as long drives into the desert. Less than a two-hour flight from LAX, it's also a truly exceptional family vacation spot, a golf paradise and, yes, a remarkable natural landscape.

Under-rated. Quiet. Enchanting and totally wide open, the Park Royal Ixtapa is a jealously guarded secret among Royal Holiday travelers, many of whom return year after year.
A long (300 m) stretch of Pacific coast beach, a swim-up bar in the massive swimming pool, stunning solarium - all set up in a quiet, fully developed and ultra-comfortable international resort town.
Three restaurants and four lounges - plus a deck lounge for refreshments - mean that you never go wanting. The twin towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo offer plenty for anyone wanting to venture out. The landscape is a natural paradise to explore inland with golf courses, extensive and exciting bike trails and a world-class yacht marina.
Blvd. Ixtapa Lote 5-A, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, 40884, México
Ixtapa is a quiet secret among Royal Holiday jet-setters. Established, refined, extensive - it's just not prominent in the English speaking beach lovers set. About halfway between Manzanillo and Acapulco on the same rugged Pacific coast, Iztapa is a planned resort community, with the nearby fishing village - Zihuatanejo - thrown in for charm.
16 miles of golden beaches grace the coast, and as Ixtapa is still far more popular with families from other parts of Mexico, low season is long and dreamy year after year. Only part of the coast is punctuated by luxury hotels. Two fantastic championship golf courses, extensive bike trails and horseback riding make it some of the most fun and refreshing coast anywhere. There's still plenty of nature - and the occasional crocodile - to go around.
Of course, on the sea, there are even more ways to enjoy yourself. The world famous marina on the northern end of the Ixtapa hotel zone hosts a number of charter and boat rental outfits, and the beaches are frequented by smaller craft happy to whisk visitors out to Ixtapa Island. An afternoon in one the Ixtapa's area's most pristine natural environments includes numerous unique beaches and shallow water pools perfect for swimming and snorkeling and all connected by secluded island footpaths.
Royal Holiday members frequently adopt Ixtapa as their home away from home and come back to visit every year. In Prime Season, it's one elegant party after another, and the rest of the year, it's just a perfectly relaxing and beautiful natural get away.
Surf's up and the view has never been more beautiful.
The Crown Pacific is one of the best-loved of Royal Holiday's Club Resorts, always with a whole array of rooms set aside especially for the membership. And members do come back year after year.
With wide panoramic views of the Tangolunda Bay, from high on the golf course, the Crown Pacific is a Huatulco landmark. 135 Junior & Master Suites, each with private terrace, look out on the bay, the rocky little islands and the wide Pacific beyond. King Size beds or two double beds, living room with a sofa-bed, coffee maker, strong-boxes, and satellite televisions mean you'll be living it up. There's a massive swimming pool, another at the beach club, three restaurants and three lounges. There are tennis courts and golf and plenty of sun and fun!
The shuttle runs all day to the beach club, just minutes away, and the sunsets from Huatulco are something you will never forget.
Blvd. Benito Juárez No. 8, Bahia de Tangolunda, Bahías de Huatulco, Oaxaca, 70989, México
High on the Southern Coast
Huatulco is one of the newest and most ecologically sensitive resort communities anywhere on the Mexico coast.
At the southern tip of the Sierra Madre Mountains, known for high, rugged mountains and deep, fertile valleys, Huatulco sprang up on ground that borders a vast inland of waterfalls, plunging rivers, enchanted forests and mountains that touch the sky. From May through December, the jungles are alive with friendly visitors and beasts of all shapes and sizes. The plants blossom with all variety of flowers and a huge variety of eco-tours make it all accessibile to you!
Huatulco's resorts and vacation spots are jealously guarded - almost secret holiday getaways - but Royal Holiday travelers have access to some of the finest, and for a long romantic getaway, or a quick breakway south of the border, there's no finer place on Earth.

The quintessential Jersey Shore experience, the Brigantine Beach Club is still one of the locations most wildly popular with Royal Holiday travelers.
Minutes away from the world-famous Atlantic City Boardwalk, Brigantine Island is a few hours drive away from the airports at Newark or Philadelpia and offers plenty of fun, a break from your regular routine, and all the services and comfort you deserve.
A few minutes walk from the beach, Royal Holiday members have easy access to Studios, Ambassador and Presidential Suites - and all of them include WiFi, air conditioning, bathtub, and a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Onsite there's a magnificent swimming pool for seasonal use and boating, fishing, golf and tennis are all within a few minutes drive.
Check-In: 16:00:00 -Check-Out: 10:00:00 hrs.
4500 West Brigantine Avenue, Brigantine New Jersey 08203, USA.
Old School Jersey Shore; close and with something for absolutely everybody.
Atlantic City is among our most popular resort locations. That’s in part because it's just so convenient. Within 3-4 hours of most the eastern seaboard, it's a terrific bargain, close to everything and miles away from everything else. Take your time, relax and set up shop for a week.
It’s got a reputation as a mob-city, but Atlantic City is safe, and always reinventing itself. With a resort community that splits loyalty between New York and Philadelphia allegiances, this is New Jersey’s answer to the West Coast. It’s exciting too.
A condo on the Jersey Shore is always exciting. First class details, and lots of beach that’s perfect even in the dead of a cold Atlantic winter. Local favorites include everything from Italian food and pastries to some of New Jersey’s top restaurants. Take your time. With business class WiFi and no sacrifice in your style of living, it’s the perfect spot for a quick week or a couple of long summer weekends.
With the boardwalk and world famous casinos, there’s always something to do. Wharton State Forest and the Jersey Pine Barrens are surrounded by golf courses and ever more trails to mountain bike, explore and learn from.
Brigantine Beach may just be one of the least appreciated islands on the east coast. With an archipelago of rugged little islands between Brigantine and the mainland, there’s plenty of space for canoeing, boating and kayaking. Atlantic City is just across the bridge, but getting to know Brigantine beach, from the Bridge and on up to the golf course is refreshing, fun and with a variety of excellent spas and wellness centers, you'll find that even a quick, close trip to the Jersey Shore pays off big.

Classic Lake Wallenpaupack is but one of 150 lakes that dot this impressive region, and from the tops of the slopes, you'll see that the mountain ranges go on for miles in every direction.
Quaint, historical towns - Hawley, Stroudsberg, Jim Thorpe - all offer a treasure trove of antiques and shopping across the four county area. And it's all close to the east coast's biggest metropolitan centers while still being perfectly, refreshingly rural.
Come for the golf courses, horseback riding, hiking trails, skiing & snowboarding, or one of the area waterparks. In every case, the Poconos offer a terrific vacation for folks arriving from near and far, in a corner of Pennsylvania just like you'll remember it.

... the Pacific always remembers.
Beautiful Puerto Vallarta is still one of the very top recipients of international tourists in Mexico, easily beating all others on the mainland Pacific coast. Famous since the filming of the 1964 classic "Night of the Iguana," Ava Gardener and Richard Burton never had it so good. Vallarta still shelters an air of the sultry, the exotic and the redemptive. That's just part of what makes it so popular with Royal Holiday travelers.
In addition to the perfect bay and beaches, visitors pour in for the whale watching, the landscape and the perfect balance between man and nature. The city, which has grown by leaps and bounds, is well managed if not always perfectly ecologically balanced. Ecotourism and related attractions continue to outpace more traditional seaside activities though there are plenty of those too. Sightseeing excursions, art exhibitions, sailing, shopping and plenty of nightlife make it as fun a vacation spot as any on Earth.
Puerto Vallarta has hosted Royal Holiday travelers since the club's founding in the early 1980s. More club members visit more steadfastly than anywhere except Cancun and many would not think of traveling anywhere else.

Carlos Pellegrini 551, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Where was Buenos Aires in the 20th Century?
Complicated, complex, energetic, and seductive, most English speakers had barely given it a thought before the banking crisis of the 1990s. Yet- there was always an allure, a mystery and an attraction. You know it's cosmopolitan, exotic, exciting - even if you can't name a single Argentina landmark.
When Royal Holiday memberships in South America started to take off, so too did demand for this, one of the premier world capitals in the Americas. For the past ten years, we've been sending excited, anxious travelers from the world over to experience the Buenos Aires of the legends, of the twentieth century and of today.
It's the capital and the bulwark of that incredible Argentinian character. It's also affordable, beautiful year-round and something you'll definitely want to tell your friends about. June and July low temperatures reach into the mid 40sF, (6-8C) and December-January highs reach the mid 80sF (27-30C).
As legendary poet and Buenos Aires native, Jorge Luis Borges said:
Hard to believe Buenos Aires had any beginning.
I feel it to be as eternal as air and water.
