Pros: Close proximity to the beach and a wide range of good restaurants within walking distance.
Cons: The hotel service could be better - I appreciate it's the 'off-season' however residents pay full price so should be entitled to good service.
Location: Beach a few steps from the hotel. Good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Bay Walk shopping mall within walking distance.
We have visited this hotel a number of times during the past few years. The hotel is not 'all inclusive' however there are many good restaurants nearby. The rooms are very nice and have recently been refurbished. We tend to visit in September as the hotel and beach are very quiet - the high season runs from October to April - although the accommodation is not inexpensive. While we enjoy visiting during the 'quiet season', when the weather is still very good, the down side is that the hotel service is not at the level I would expect. 'Quiet season' appears to equal 'poorer hotel service' - pool bar closed, no beach service available, beach towels to be picked up from the hotel reception (?). Disappointing, as residents are paying the same non-discounted rates as those visiting in the high season.

Lovely St Lucian HotelPosted Jul 29, 2013
I had a wonderful time at the hotel in July 2013. The suite was spacious, well decorated and very clean. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Good location, directly on a beautiful beach and walking distance to Rodney Bay's shopping mall, casino and restaurants.

Thank you for posting your comments on your recent stay at the Royal in July 2013 . I am delighted that you found our newly renovated suites well decorated and clean and that our staff were friendly and attentive . Our location is definately a plus being right on one of the best beach es on the island and located so close to the varied restaurants and night life in the Rodney Bay area . We hope that we will see you again in the near future.

I stayed at the Royal years ago (Nelson Mandela had stayed there not long before we did). Now, 17 years later, the rooms at the Royal have been recently refurbished into chic, romantic hideaways. The bath area could be listed under "water sports," we loved the huge waterfall shower and bubble bath tub. Upon arrival, each room is adorned with scores of fresh cut tropical flowers, which also cover the bed, your robe pocket and the bath towels. For entertainment, you are right on the strip, close to every kind of dining, drinking or dancing. However, the best meals that we had, were at our own beach front hotel. The ocean water was warm, with a hard, smooth sand bottom. The views were perfect and we took advantage of the plentiful jogging/walking trails (for more vertical, take the beach left and keep going after the beach ends). We also sailed from a very handy rental, just a short walk down the beach. Next time we will take the Segway tour. They have them fitted with floatation tires, so you can go anywhere! The staff was super friendly and helpful, and even gave us a ride to a spot that was difficult to explain on a map. The pools were beautiful and well maintained. In short, this hotel is perfect for sport-minded, romantic couples, or mixing business with pleasure (great spa)!

People fall in love with this place.Posted Nov 22, 2012
Pros: The staff, the beach, the Chic restaurant.
Cons: No elevators for my aging knees!
Location: The location in Rodney Bay area, is one of the Royal's most appealing features, with excellent restaurants directly across the street & shops nearby.
After 7 stays at the Royal, I consider the people working there to be wonderful friends. From the casual in-pool bartender, Troy, to the estimable sommelier/maitre d', Marc, this excellent staff makes up for some of the points I might take off for minor upkeep issues (e.g., showers in the steam room/sauna, etc.). Most of the people that I run into at the Royal are returning guests.

I just loved it!!!Posted Oct 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
I had a room with sea view and I just loved it. The bathrooms were just like I want them. Lots of space with lots of nice and clean water. The bed and air condition where good. All the people working in the hotel are friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant could have been better, but the egg omelet was very nice for breakfast. Lots of nice restaurant nearby, so not to worry!

Very outdated rooms. Food was terrible. All staff were very nice and tried to be accommodating. Many people around on beach and streets trying to sell things who were somewhat unpleasant when refused. Nothing much to see in immediate area. Beach was great.

This hotel should not be listed as a 4 star resort - it just barely makes a 3 in my books. I unfortunately booked here for 2 weeks. There are about 7 channels, two are spanish only, no sound on the BBC channel and you don't even get the local channels. What they advertise as a king bed is two twin beds put together. The furniture is old and extremely uncomfortable. I would not recommend anyone stay here. LM
