The hotel is set i a nice location with good access to the local mall, medical centre and restaurants/bars. the rooms are a good size and nicely done. This is about where the posatives end. The beach is over crowded to the point it is hard to walk along as its used by all the patrons from the cruise ships...

As always New Year's Eve in St.Lucia is very special and the time to party. Our family chose the Royal St.Lucian for our celebrations. The price was reasonable, the buffets excellent, the music was HOT, and the party was swinging. It started gently with champagne on arrival and the tempo heated up just in time for midnight fireworks. Great party....

The Royal offered a great New Year's Eve package. They had a buffet with every option you could possibly think of, great dining experience followed by a live band, midnight toast, and fireworks on the beach, very reasonably priced. The place was decorated beautifully, the service was very good, the band played a nice mix of both pop music and...

I stayed here on a business trip. The rooms and grounds are lovely and the hotel is well located iIn the middle of Rodney Bay.

Amazing massage on the beach by one of the hotel professionals. Probably one of the highlights of the trip! The staff were really friendly although a little slow and too laid back when it came to drinks and had to wait a while for our room. Overall a good experience.

This hotels best asset is its location. The beach is beautiful although crowed when the cruise ships arrive, the Royal has its own designated area free of the multicoloured parasols and plastic sun loungers more suited to Gran Canaria. There are a dozen restaurants, numerous bars and shops within a five minute walk outside the hotel. The food options inside...

This was my husbands' and I first visit to the royal and while standing at the check out counter we began planning our return trip! Where do I start..... The service was sky high above standard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Acclaimed as one of the best in St Lucia, the spectacular mile-long Reduit Beach fronts this all-suite hotel while, with a backdrop of rainforest covered hills, atmospheric Rodney Bay is reached within a few moments stroll. Standing in beautifully manicured grounds, the hotel offers an elegant blend of privacy and sophistication. Beneath palm-frond parasols, elegant furnishings allow for lazy days on the sandy beach or relax instead by the large lagoon-style swimming pool shaded by palm trees. The Royal Spa offers an enticing variety of treatments ranging from a reviving jet-lag busting massage to sensual aromatherapy and body care while, for the more energetic, the fully-equipped fitness room is available free to our guests. A delicious full buffet breakfast is included at L'Epicure, an elegant al fresco restaurant next to the beach which also offers tantalising a-la-carte dinner choices. Fine dining experiences can be enjoyed at Chic in the evening while, cooled by gentle sea breezes, the Beach Tent is a perfect venue for lunch. Perhaps enjoy a cocktail at the charming Minstrals Lounge before visiting the elegant Oriental restaurant (seasonal) or Mariners buffet, located at the adjacent St Lucian by rex resorts, or strolling in to town to experience the local ambience. Children are welcomed at the Royal and can enjoy the childrens club available on weekdays at set times at our neighbouring hotel while everyone can benefit from the wide range of activities accessible locally including water sports, horse riding, golf and exhilarating tours to explore the natural beauty of St Lucia. ... more   less
