Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The bed was fantastic, the views incredible, the beach was gorgeous and the food was the best we've ever had at a hotel. Would definitely go back and stay there again.

We have stayed at this hotel on and off for the last 20 years and have always been impressed by the excellent service, wonderful location and great rooms overlooking the the white sandy beach to the sea. None of these things have changed but the rooms are now beginning to feel very dated. The air con is antiquated and noisy,... More

From the moment you arrive at the hotel, the quality and consistency of the customer service is abundant. The property and grounds are paradise, along with the location on the beautiful beach. The guest rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with outstanding water views of the Caribbean Sea. The food in the restaurants is excellent, particularly their special buffets. The... More

This was our second visit to the Royal Pavillion and as we arrived at the hotel how nice for the senior reception staff to greet us like old friends. Then to have bar and restaurant staff remember you and throughout our stay to know your names makes you feel so at home. Same rooms as before deluxe ocean view are... More

We were staying at an apartment that is a member of the beach club. Thank you to the team there we enjoyed every day because of you. Specifically Ryan always happy and attentive. My husband left his very expensive sunglasses at the end of a day. Ryan retrieved and delivered them safely back to us. So much care and attention.

The one redeeming feature of this hotel is the new owners and a first class manager in Tim Morrison. this hotel does not need TLC it needs total refurbishing. The bathroom is a jjoke for a five star hotel 9x6. You have to take turns !!!. The pool leaked and was continually full of leaves so when you came out... More
