I cannot find menus for any of the Royal Resorts restaraunts in Canun. I am trying to guage how much it is going to cost my family to eat for the week. There are 4 of us 2 adults and 2 kids (5 & 8). We only planning on eating out for dinner and occassionaly lunch.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to find them?

Thanks!

The menus aren't online, but food prices are very reasonable.

All the Royals restaurants have kids' prices for burgers, hot dogs, quesadillas, and a few other kids' faves - I think around $3? The various specials are generally half price for kids.

Nightly specials tend to be in the $12-16 range, typically some kind of chicken or fish with rice or potato, vegetable, and soup or salad. About the most expensive thing we've ever gotten is a $23 steak dinner. At the Royal Mayan Palapa, a chicken salad in a half-pineapple shaped like a swan is around $8, and a Mexican platter is around $10-11.

Of course tax and tip and drinks and desserts will increase the cost just as they would stateside. They do not do free soft drink refills. The water is fine - I drink plain ice water there all the time.

There are theme nights - e.g. Mexican Night - buffet + show - can't remember for sure, but I think it's in the $25-30 range including drinks (margaritas or sodas), and half price for kids.

Brunch buffet is around $12 I think - including everything but tip. A big burger or club sandwich is around $6-9, at the restaurants or delivered poolside. At Happy Hour (3-7) the pool and beach waiters will deliver free chips and salsa (you have to ask) with your drinks. My kids get alcohol-free strawberry daiquiris, pina coladas, or chocolate monkeys for around $1, and I think a beer at happy hour is $2 - plus tip.

The Express take out - at the Royal Caribbean, Sands, and Haciendas, take-out or free delivery (tip of course) is a great option. Ribs are about $13 (I think it's about 1.5 racks), a good sized roast chicken is $7, a quart of soup (black bean or mexican lime) is about $4, a large caesar salad (to share) is about $4. A large pizza is around $12 I think.

A whole key lime pie at the express is about $8. A tub of ice cream in the mini markets is around $4-5. In comparison, ordering dessert in the restaurants will be around $4-5 per piece of pie or cake, and a Hagen-Dazs ice cream cone or bar will be around $4 in the mini-market.

Mini-market sodas and beer are about $1 per can. Cereals are around $2-4 per box.

I think we spend less there than at home.

Please post again or PM me if you are thinking of any particular types of food.

All the Royals have fairly well stocked mini-markets - between that and the express take-out, we rarely bother with the supermarket. The mini-markets have just about anything but fresh meats, although there are frozen steaks and chicken and shrimp available.

There is a WalMart and a Chedrau (sp?) in town. It's around a 40 minute bus ride from any of the Tri-Royals (shorter from the Sands or Club Internacional). The bus is inexpensive - less than a dollar - and if you have a lot you can take a taxi back (I don't know the cost, but less than $10?). The WalMart is very well stocked and it's interesting to see the different products. The bakery is extremely good and inexpensive. You can use your credit card at WalMart.
