My experience at the Royal contributed significantly to making this one of my best trips. The Royal is a beautiful property with well-kept grounds, a gorgeous pool, and attractive restaurants. It is located right on Reduit Beach and in perfect proximity to the highlights of Rodney Bay. You’ll only be a short walk to restaurants, bars, and the mall. However,... More

We stayed for 7 nights in August at the Royal. The location is the best feature of this hotel. The beautiful pool right on one of the nicest stretches of beach on the island (that we saw at least) was fantastic. We traveled around the island quite a bit. Even the most expensive places closer Marigot or Soufriere did not... More

My wife and I stayed for two weeks in the Royal. We were made very welcome on our arrival got the feeling that we were the most important people in the hotel. After the formalities we had a nice rum punch and taken to our rooms and given a tour and everything explained to us. This was the start of... More

My wife, 7 year old son, and I loved the property and the the beach is amazing. We were also met by 17 other family members on this vacation/family reunion and everyone had a grand time!

My family and I first stayed at the Royal by Rex resort 18 years ago, when I was just 4 years old. We have returned 9 times since, which speaks for itself - we love this place!

We were upgraded from ocean view to beachfront so we could have adjoining rooms. The resort is older but the renovations are great. The suite was very roomy, shower is excellent! The location is ideal! Restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. The only negatives are that the bed was not comfortable and trying to book excursions was chaotic.... More
