Small, cozy, friendly, easy to get around, staff feels like family. Where else can you go where the manager Estella calls you by name, you get hugs from the security lady Zuly, and David greets you with "Bon Dia" every morning?! We are selling our 3 impersonal glitzy Marriotts in Hawaii and Aruba to get more time here. Love the... More

Stayed a few days at this resort in May, 2015. It's a well kept property and separated by a bridge and walkway making it very safe. It is on the same property as the Aquarium and anyone who stays there gets free access to it. It was a lot of fun with dolphin and seal shows, along with feeding the... More

I just returned from a trip with my friends and we had a great time. The views from the balcony in room 103 were awesome. Good restaurants in walking distance. Loved the pasta from Augustos, the Steak Sandwich at Hemmingways, the skewers at Chill and Grill, the tapas at the Mexican restaurant at the Blvd, and the Pizza place. Never... More

We just got back from a week at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort. The room was wonderfully clean and well taken care of. We had a one bedroom on the first floor facing the pool. At first I was disappointed that we didn't get a room facing the aquarium but as time went on, we were very happy with our... More

I was in this resort for business purposes on the island. I enjoyed the location and the view. The swimming pool is OK and the appartment was good enough. I was schocked to hear the second day that I had to move to another room, because of the time share; they forgot to tell me. But with much help and... More

First of all, if you are considering booking this place you must understand that although it has "resort" on the name, it is really a time share. If you are expecting resort or hotel amenities, this is not the place for you. Check in: We did arrived a little early (less than 2 hours) but the front desk people were... More

This hotel is exactly what we needed and expected. We had a 1 bdr with amazing view of the ocean and dolphins. 5 minutes walk from shops and restaurants on Mambo Beach and Cabana Beach. The only thing that I suggest is not to eat at this hotel. Their breakfast is expensive and not so good. There is the Lion's... More

We will be back for sure! The views were stunning, sunsets overlooking the Caribbean Sea were magical. This resort had a great little beach of it's own, was never crowded and had some great snorkeling from the shore. It was close to plenty of great restaurants and had a pretty decent restaurant of it's own (Augusto's). There were also some... More
