We recently had our destination wedding at the Royal West Indies and couldn't have been happier. We had 30 guests total, all staying on site, and the wedding was on the beach. The beach and ocean are beautiful- as nice as I could have imagined. The rooms are light and airy, w/ great balconies- a very nice beach feel. They also have fridge/ microwave/ plates and utensils/ and washer dryer, which lets you settle in and feel at home. Great for wet bathing suits and not always having to eat out.
We weren't expecting much from the food- just hoping it was solid, but it turned out to be world-class even for foodies like us. The Mango Reef onsite prepared a tremendous wedding menu for us- guests did not have to choose entrees ahead of time, and the filet and grilled lobster were both outstanding. The staff made the planning and execution of our reception a breeze. We also ate out Magnolia Wine Bar and Anacoana which were both excellent as well. The top notch food on the island took us by surprise more than anything.
Our ceremony was held on the beach at sunset, and was perfect. The grounds at the RWI are tremendous... well maintained lush gardens w/ an almost jungle feel... two seperate and very impressive pools. This property had a lot of character... more so than a lot of the other cookie-cutter resorts on the island, but it still had all the amenities one could want.
The staff on the whole was solid- some great, some just ok. The bar staff in particular can be a bit cold, but the restaurant staff/ front desk/ and housekeeping were all good. One other small negative to mention- some of our guests had issues with bugs, the bugs were not noticeable or annoying, but they ended up with some bites after a few days. Not a deal killer, but something to be aware of. It may be an issue throughout the island, and they were only out at night.
We obviously did a lot of research beforehand, and our choice delivered. If money is no object, then I'm sure there are nicer properties. But for the price, the beach, and the overall beauty of this resort, the RWI is legit.
