Nice hotel with excellent staff and a nice beach.

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: The location, beach, pool and staff.
Cons: Better bug control- the tiny ants.
Location: Shopping and many restaurants and bars are all within 1/2 mile of the hotel. Watersports are available on the beach. Boat cruises from marina.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The grounds are clean and well kept. Really enjoyed the beach and swim up bar. The room was modern and clean. We did have a couple issues- tiny (and fast) ants that would get into any exposed sweets left out. The staff sprayed and this helped. We also had a septic smell in the room a couple of times that seemed to be from the AC, but never confirmed it. Didn't last long. Also, the last day, the TV stopped working... but who needs TV on vacation. Location is within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping. Overall, a very nice experience and we will return.

Not bad as an hotel, but location is great

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: Location is great near all clubs and restaurants
Cons: Rooms, we were on the 3rd floor and no elevators
Location: The location is great , all the hangouts are nearby , but the hotel is a bit old
The hotel needs to be refurbished, I went to the Sandals, the difference was huge facility and modernness wise

Ideal hotel for the beach

Posted Apr 8, 2014
This hotel is on one of the best beaches in St Lucia. It is ideally placed for the beach and many restaurants in the surrounding area. It has good facilities and we had a superb week there.

will be much better once pool renovations are done

Posted Mar 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
keep in mind the following: 1) 1.5 hr drive to hotel from UVF airport. 2) Part of the pool area is currently under construction so you will hear power tools and workers throughout the day. 3) Be prepared to deal with beach vendors and misc people trying to sell you. 4) Many good hotels are in walking distance so that was a huge plus. Staff was super nice and accommodating.

Nice beach, pool and rooms

Our room was very comfortable. Beach was clean and provided plenty of shade. Pool was also very nice. I would recommend this hotel in St Lucia

Nice oasis, comfy rooms, okay food

Posted Mar 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
It took 1.5 hrs to travel from UVF airport to Royal resort at a cost of $85. Upon arrival we were assigned a beautiful room, with a very comfortable king size bed, a great bathroom (shower with rain head and spray jets), and a very comfortable living room and balcony. Most of the resort has been updated. The reception area and gym are the only areas that still need renovations. The hotel is within walking distance to many restaurants and coffee shops. We took daily strolls to eat breakfast and dinner. For lunch we ate at the hotel and at spinnakers. We had considered the sister Rex resort that is all inclusive and we were glad we didnt as those guests were coming over to eat at the Royal.

Nice hotel but room service could use an upgrade

Posted Mar 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed one night during a business trip. This was my second time staying at this hotel. The rooms are very nice and have been recently renovated. the grounds are in reasonable condition but are not kept up particularly well and there is no special attention given to aesthetics. That said, Beach and Pool are very nice and that's what most people are coming for. I was disappointed with the selection of menu items available for delivery to the room. There were some fantastic dishes available at the restaraunts for dine in but the room service menu had a very limited offering. Also no elevators, so ask for a ground floor if you have any limitations.

Great location

Posted Feb 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Royal. The location is well located very close to restaurants and shops. Staff is friendly and helpful and the food at the restaurant was excellent. Our room was comfortable. It has been re-modeled since the last time we were there and while it was nice, there were some issues. For instance, the lighting in the bathroom was very poor. The air conditioning was a little hard to regulate. It was either almost off or very cold. Common areas (e.g.: halls) were a little tired. The pool was lovely and the sun beds were brand new. The beach was great for swimming but very crowded with cruise ship day trippers. There is an area reserved for hotel guests which was an advantage. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
