I cannot understand the previous reviews! We had a nice room - spacious, clean, bright, no bugs on the balcony, lots of hot water immediately, good stream of water, lots of clean towels. We were situated in the middle of the Royal so an easy walk to both the beach and the lobby. Food was pretty good on the whole....

Great stay and friendly staff. Special mention to Omar and his pizzas and to Rudy with the beach drinks. Would visit again. The resort is good value for money, clean and has enough variety to keep a couple entertained for a couple of weeks.

The pros: the the grounds are well-maintained and beautiful. Everyone was really friendly and attentive. 24hr free room service. Access to family resort amenities next door and the Pearl beach club. It was quiet and laid back. Housekeeping cleans room everyday and gives enough towels and water. The cons: the food at the restaurants weren't great and portions too small....

Couldn't believe how nice the resort and how poor the food, services and drinks were. The wifi was really poor and mostly nonexistent. The connection dropped every 2 min. I chose not to tip because the service was so poor. The coffee was instant coffee and tasted like crap. Even the milk, was powder milk. For $300+/night, everything was poor....

When we arrived, lovely welcome drink and towel handed to us, however the room given to us was in block 19 which was not the same room as shown when booking. After discussing with reception our room was changed with no problem. Excellent service. Cons: Really not a lot to complain about but if you are there for over a...

Grounds and general setup is well put together. Regular rooms are dated. Golf course layout and quality is good value. Beach offers a lot of space with ample chair availability. Some weeds however not excessive. Reasonable value for a group at Xmas time.
