This place is very nice to spend your vacation. Nice pools, a decent beach. Resort is very relaxed. Stay includes tickets for the sea aquarium. The only thing that they should work on is the parking lot. The walking distance is not such a problem, but walking in the sun could be experienced as hard by some. Room is very...

My dad and I really enjoyed our spacious one bedroom suite. We stayed from July 27th thru August 3rd, 2013. It had beautiful views on the balcony that overlooked the pool area and out to the sea. I enjoyed the peace and quiet and often took naps in the lawn chair or ate my breakfast on the balcony. We were...

Stayed July 18 thru 25 in a two bed two bath. So much room and so comfortable. Air conditioning was incredible. Property was quiet and private. Sometimes we felt as if we were the only ones there! Beach was nice too. Quiet and relaxing. Only negatives are the lack of channels on the three flat screens in the apartment. Found...

The resort is amazing, the staff is super nice. We stayed in the small studio which wasn't that small. It had the essentials, microwave, fridge, coffee maker and plates. It's very clean. the only thing i find absurd is their checkout policy. it's at 11am. which is not bad, but make sure you check out before 11am, Every 15 min...

Let me start by saying that the Resort is located on a Private Island, feeling safe and knowing that strangers are not allowed on the premises at any time is priceless, especially when you are travelling with young kids. They Have 24/7 Security and Front Desk. The Place is beautiful and very unique, our unit was in the building A...

I own 3 weeks at royal resort sea aquarium.I must say it is not a Marriott, I own three weeks there as well. I expect high standards from both. If you are a favored member at RRSA or who they deem important you will get the royal treatment. Otherwise you get the mediocre treatment. And especially if you make a...

Great location for traveling into Punda or really anywhere on the island. The room was spacious and the facility very clean. Although we left the children and grandchildren home it clearly is a great place for families. Nice pools, and very gentle beach to play on. For us the pool, beach and jacuzzi were wonderful. Just a walk to good...

The property is attractive, very clean & well kept. The lovely ladies who run the desk (& maybe the world) are over-the-top amazingly helpful! They must speak at least 7 languages. The beach area is small but clean and is actually more of a lagoon. The views to the ocean are beautiful and the water is turquoise every day. The...
