Some of the friendliest people I've encountered. Great location on the beach at Rodney Bay. Rooms nicely furnished and staff very attentive. Had welcome cocktail hour with great finger foods......staff at the function appeared to truly care about opinions of the customers.

We stayed at the Royal St. Lucian from April 2-8, 2014, with our two kids and my parents. As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a fresh glass of rum punch for the adults and regular punch for the kids. This tasted so good after a long day of traveling! Greta welcomed us to the... More

Exhausted, stressed, and totally in need of a vacation, we arrived on property to be greeted by the most amazing staff. Everyone including Sylvester, Rochelle, the housekeeping staff, the maintenance staff, everyone, treated us like royalty! If you need to be pampered and in an exotic environment, this is the place to stay-bar none! This is our third trip I... More

Travelers should note the following: 1) 1.5hr drive from UVF airport 2) Part of the pool is curerntly under contruction. Everything about the pool setting was perfect...the chairs are super comfy, nice umbrellas, etc...BUT it is pretty hard to relax when you hear power tools and hammering/banging going on basically most of the day from every spot of the pool...

The Royal by Rex is an excellent hotel. We stayed for ten nights in March (2014) and had a great time. The rooms are spacious and tidy, the staff are friendly, helpful and polite, and the hotel's location is fantastic: the beach is on the doorstep, Rodney Bay's shops, bars and restaurants are a short walk away, and the Friday...

I live in Saint Lucia so if you are someone who believes in, "if local people eat (are present) at local establishments, then the food, (service) must be good," then you can't go wrong staying at Royal St Lucia.

We spent weeks researching hotels & properties in St. Lucia for our getaway, and are so happy we landed at Royal by Rex. Upon request, the hotel sent a driver to the UVF airport. He met us with a smile and commentary of the island along the nearly 2 hour drive to the hotel. The $100US charge was worth it.... More

Thanks for posting your very positive review on your recent stay . I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your unofficial tour of our island on your way from the airport … it certainly makes the drive seem shorter and answers a lot of questions before you arrive at your hotel. I will certainly pass on your comments to... More
