Royal Resort is a resort you would want to visit if you want to relax but still have nightlife close to you and family friendly activities around you. From having the Sea Aquarium right by the hotel and also have MAMBO and Wet and Wild in walking distance. Great rooms and beautiful views.

We are a family of four and the suite was perfect for us. The resort provided us with a crib and a high chair for our baby at no extra cost. The fold out bed worked well for our older child. The kitchen was well equipped with all the things you may need for a short stay. Our room was...

The Sea Aquarium is a time sharing system that was not informed to us in check in. In the middle of our stay, we had to lose time to change rooms unnecessary. When they changed our stuff, they let the things on the refrigerator OUTSIDE the refrigerator in the new room, and we lost some products due to bad conservation....

My husband and I traded into the Royal through Interval. This resort is ideally located allowing access to explore this beautiful island. Front desk staff were great, pleasant and very helpful. Always available to help with dinner reservations and directions. We only had one unpleasant encounter with the Sunday manager. Units were large, comfortable though a bit dated. I would...

The Royal Sea Resort is very quiet and relaxing. The pool and beach area were not crowded and had plenty of areas for either sun or shade. I appreciated that they did not allow personal music in the public areas so we could enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Our 2 bedroom second floor villa had a large wonderful terrace...

From the moment we arrived we were impressed with this facility. The front desk staff were all lovely, courteous, and professional, providing guidance and advice when ever we needed it. The rooms were very nice, the bed and pillow, usually a huge complaint where ever I go, were the best I have ever slept on. The cleaning staff had great...

The resort, smaller than many, is attached to the Sea Aquarium, so you get free passes (good for your entire stay) to enter the Sea Aquarium (many hands-on offerings, and sea lion and dolphin shows). We stayed in a junior suite, which lacked a kitchen (just microwave, coffee brewer, and tiny fridge--along with a few dishes and silverware), had a...

My friend and I stayed at The Royal Sea Aquarium. The place is fantastic. Beautiful view, great customer service, great room; but the room was dirty when we arrived, in addition the room smelled bad. Like mold .... It is sad that The administration has not done something to fix this problem. I really hope the clean and take care...

Spent 2 weeks here in Nov 2013 at this marvelous location adjacent to the Sea Aquarium, offering a private beach and wonderful views of the sea from our bedroom window. The only downside was the onsite restaurant Augusto's (see separate TA review). Not to worry, there are at least 3 very good healthy eating establishments to be found within a...
