MIAMI, FL (March 8, 2012) — Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group, announced the addition of The Royal Cancun and Gran Caribe Real Resort & Spa to its exchange network. Located side-by-side in Cancun’s famous Hotel Zone, these oceanfront resorts showcase two distinct vacation experiences within Real Resorts’ portfolio of luxury, all-inclusive properties in the Mexican Caribbean.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the well-respected Real Resorts, who has established a strong lifestyle-based brand that holds great appeal for couples and families,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s vice president of resort sales and service for Latin America. “These all-inclusive properties will make wonderful additions to our quality network since this style of vacationing is very popular with our members.”
The Royal Cancun is a favorite of those looking for a romantic getaway. The adults-only property features 280 elegantly appointed suites with handcrafted mahogany furniture, private terraces with unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea, a 32-inch rotating LCD satellite TV and DVD/CD player, and high-speed Internet. Among the onsite amenities are seven gourmet restaurants and cafes, SPAzul, Cancun’s only ocean view spa; art gallery, travel agency, state-of-the-art Life Fitness Center(R), Olympic-size infinity edge swimming pool with 50-meter lap lane, and tranquil oceanfront pool.

Around-the-clock room service is available, as well as a 24-hour VIP Lounge serving hors d’oeuvres and premium snacks, and access to the resort’s “Royal Romance Concierge.”
“Our company successfully launched Club Real Resorts in 2007 and we have never looked back. Each resort is designed to offer members and guests memorable vacations that provide the best of everything — from the moment they arrive to when they leave — and allow them to vacation in an ambiance of casual elegance,” said Fernando Garcia Zalvidea, president of Real Resorts.
The family-friendly Gran Caribe Real Resort & Spa comprises 487 suites with open interiors, arched doorways, columns, swag drapes, dark wood furnishings, private balconies, and satellite TV and CD/DVD player.

Gran Caribe also offers a wide array of activities for vacationers of all ages. On any day during their stay, guests can choose to snorkel or kayak in the Caribbean Sea, play football on the beach, shoot hoops in a game of water basketball in one of the resort’s two swimming pools, face off on a tennis or squash court, or work out in the fitness center.
“An uncompromising commitment to quality, personal service, and traditional Mexican hospitality are key components of Club Real Resorts’ guiding principle: ‘Exceeding Your Expectations,'” said Francisco Aranda, director general of Club Real Resorts. “We look forward to welcoming Interval members to our properties and offering our members the opportunity to visit other high-caliber resorts throughout the world.”
