I stayed here years ago and was still very happy with the accommodation when I stayed in March and April this year. One unit needed a bit of TLC but both had comfortable beds, were clean and very well equipped. The unrestricted views were breathtaking. There is a beautiful secured pool and spa surrounded by plenty of day beds, chairs,...

This resort is in a great location right on the beach. Large pirate park just next door. Great pool area and facilities. Spa was lovely and warm. Good resort facilities including pool area, full and half size tennis court, mini putt for the kids. Biggest down side would be how dated our room was. Possibly the most dated room I've...

Don't waste your money! Old unairconditioned rooms. For the price we paid, pedestal fans are ridiculous, to have booked this place so far in advance and for my dad's wedding, we expected better rooms. The reception staff are incredibly rude, unhelpful and liars. We actually couldn't get into our room because the door is broken and there are holes in...

Our Friends from Melbourne booked this resort on line and on arrival we were locked out and there was no record of the booking, we managed to contact an after hours number and eventually were provided a none air conditioned room which was very outdated and many lights not working and a loose electrical fitting.

You need to be aware that the standard of accommodation varies a great deal in this hotel and you may be disappointed. Very few of the apartments have air conditioning and the kitchens and bathrooms can be very dated. A deluxe apartment may indeed have been deluxe when built but leaves a lot to be desired now. Pricing does not...

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Royal Palm.
