My wife and I visited the Royal for the second year at the beginning of March(2013). Our stay was better than ever! The hotel's location on Reduit Beach is simply wonderful and the views are heavenly. The staff on both occassions has been wonderfully attentive and friendly. The clear difference this year was the influence of the new general manager:...

I stayed there for a weekend . It is situated within walking distance to all the great restaurants and bars, The room or should I say the suite was incredible. The service impeccable. The beach , bar and facility is fantastic, the pool is one straight from Hawaii. Well worth the cost of accommodation.

My husband and I stayed atbthe Rex for 3 nights as we were lucky enough to accompany our daughter who works as Cabin Crew for a well known airline. The hotel exceeded our expectations and although it is a little dated, it was spotlessly clean and well staffed. The most outstanding feature for us was the proximity to the beach....

This is my 2nd trip to St Lucia. I spent a week in the Coco Palm and a week at the Jalousie Plantation (now Sugar Beach) in Dec 2007 and chose this hotel because we had a dinner there at the time and liked it very much. It is not the most luxurious hotel in St Lucia. There are some...

This is a lovely hotel and the refurbished rooms, which were needed, are great. The staff, location and whole experience is very nice indeed. There is, however, one major failing and that is the temperature of the pool. It is freezing! Because of this the majority of guests seem to favour the beach which is a pity because the pool...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Acclaimed as one of the best in St Lucia, the spectacular mile-long Reduit Beach fronts this all-suite hotel while, with a backdrop of rainforest covered hills, atmospheric Rodney Bay is reached within a few moments stroll. Standing in beautifully manicured grounds, the hotel offers an elegant blend of privacy and sophistication. Beneath palm-frond parasols, elegant furnishings allow for lazy days on the sandy beach or relax instead by the large lagoon-style swimming pool shaded by palm trees. The Royal Spa offers an enticing variety of treatments ranging from a reviving jet-lag busting massage to sensual aromatherapy and body care while, for the more energetic, the fully-equipped fitness room is available free to our guests. A delicious full buffet breakfast is included at L'Epicure, an elegant al fresco restaurant next to the beach which also offers tantalising a-la-carte dinner choices. Fine dining experiences can be enjoyed at Chic in the evening while, cooled by gentle sea breezes, the Beach Tent is a perfect venue for lunch. Perhaps enjoy a cocktail at the charming Minstrals Lounge before visiting the elegant Oriental restaurant (seasonal) or Mariners buffet, located at the adjacent St Lucian by rex resorts, or strolling in to town to experience the local ambience. Children are welcomed at the Royal and can enjoy the childrens club available on weekdays at set times at our neighbouring hotel while everyone can benefit from the wide range of activities accessible locally including water sports, horse riding, golf and exhilarating tours to explore the natural beauty of St Lucia. ... more   less
