What is the best way to get from the Cancun Airport to Royal Hideaway Playacar?

If you are going to be staying at the Royal Hideaway Resort you will have to get from the Cancun Airport to the hotel. Here are some of the transportation options and what is the best way in our opinion for you to get from the Cancun Airport to the Royal Hideaway Hotel.

There are several options you have, here is a look at each one:

Out of the four options above we recommend the private transfer to the Royal Hideaway. Here is why.

Taxis are expensive from the Cancun Airport. The ride is at least¬†50 minutes and you will be more comfortable in a private transfer. You also don’t have to worry about negotiating a price with a taxi driver.

Car rentals can be nice if you are going to be doing a lot of driving on vacation. But most people that stay at the Royal Hideaway don’t need a car most of the time they are on vacation. If you do go on a tour or excursion, they all offer pickup service. The rest of the time you can spend relaxing at the pool or beach. Plus you will save about an hour or two of your vacation not having to pick up and drop off a car.

ADO bus does go from the Cancun Airport to Playa Del Carmen but you would also need to take a taxi from the bus stop to your hotel. The Royal Hideaway is in the Playacar section of Playa Del Carmen. You would have to take all your luggage off the bus and transfer it to a taxi plus deal with having pesos for payment or negotiating a price.

    Hello, we will be coming to Playa in February and would like to take private transportation from the airport to our Hotel (Angelos Hotel). Unfortunately, the Cancun Airport Transportation does not have this listed on the website. Can you recommend a reputable transportation company that can service 5 people? Love the website! Thanks!

    • Hello Ben
      They do service most of the hotels. On the website when you go to book there are not all the hotels listed because there are hundreds. You can just select “playa del Carmen downtown hotel” or central Playa del Carmen hotel. We are not sure the exact wording. It that is how you can book a hotel not on the list. We hope you have a great trip down!

      Hello Marissa

      We usually recommend a private transfer since it is a set price and easy to do. The taxis are supposed to have a set price but we often see them pull out a calculator and negotiate at the airport, no doubt for a higher price. We do not think there is a posted official price for the taxis at the airport. Since your hotel is in the downtown of Playa Del Carmen it should be about 900-1100 pesos. This would save you about 10 USD over a transfer but we cannot guarantee that price, that is just what we have heard is about the official price these days. It is up to you if you want a transfer for $60 and have a driver waiting or see how much a taxi is and take that.

    Thanks for this. We are staying at the Royal Hideaway for the first time. We have been to other resorts in Playacar and always wondered what it would be like to stay here. We will take your suggestion for the airport transfer.. Regards!
