I have just returned from a wonderful 5 day trip to Antigua. Prior to my going I had read so many reviews about how terrible the Royal Antiguan Hotel was but that was far from thr truth. The hotel could do with some refurbishing but over all it was clean the staff were always very friendly and courteous. It was...

After reading the reviews i was more than a little nervous about going to this hotel, apparently the staff had an attitude, food cold etc. I have to admit that the bathroom did need a little updating and mending!! but at least the water was hot. Any problems that we had (only little ones) were fixed immediately. Only one draw...

Maybe my view of the hotel is not fair as I did not stay there but I visited a few other hotels on the island during my stay at the Galley Bay next door. All other hotels were friendly and welcoming to visiting tourists. The Royal Antiguan was hostile and treated visitors like criminals. This is not in the nature...

Pass this one by. From the moment we checked in we felt not quite right. The service is way below average. The staff are the grumpiest on earth. They should try hammering out license plates for a change of pace. The only person we enjoyed was Heather the asst rest mgr. As for the rest horrible. We normally are good...

I stayed at the Royal Antiguan for 6 nights while I was on business before deciding I had had enough and moved to the Rex Halcyon resort for the remaining six days which were vacation time. Getting to the Royal Antiguan can be a journey in itself if you are driving as street signs are non existent but it is...

What can I say? We arrived at midnight, a group of 4 business travelers, extremely weary, only to be greated by grumpiness and the slowest check-in I had ever seen. Of course, no-one was around to help with our baggage. The entertainment playing in the ghastly bar off the lobby was, at first, karaoke, but it turned out to be...

My husband and I spent a week at the Royal in February 2005. Our aim for this holiday was complete relaxation, a good beach, warm clear water to swim in and guaranteed sunshine. We certainly got all this at this resort - and at what I would consider a reasonable cost. I find some of the comments on this resort...

We were in Antigua the week of Feb 27-March 6, 2005 had great weather people were just as friendly as before. We were there in 2001 and loved it so much we went again and stayed at the same place. Very relaxed place needs a little maintenance but is under new ownership so we will see. You can snorkel right...

Just returned from a week's all inclusive (AI) holiday at this hotel and absolutely loved it. Found some of the criticisms on this and other websites a bit harsh. We had spoken to a few people we knew who had stayed at the hotel prior to our trip and spoke very highly of it. Everyone we spoke to during our...
