Hotel is in St. Lucia's biggest tourism quarter so close to restaurants and shopping. The room was very clean and comfortable, I spent more time in my room than on the beach. The best feature in the room is the bathroom's tub and updated shower with jets. The hotel staff was very professional and attentive; the manager's cocktail was an... More

Pros • Upgraded to a beach-front ocean view room. Large balcony area overlooking beach, with lounge chairs. • Large living room and separate bedroom • Enjoyed... More

I have been to St Lucia many times but never stayed at this beautiful resort. Now, I will never stay anywhere else. Pros : The check in experience was really friendly and they made every effort to provide the room ahead of schedule and oh what a room it was! The step up into the bedroom was a nice touch... More

My wife and I have just returned from the Royal St Lucian and had the most fantastic holiday. This is a relatively quiet hotel set in magnificent grounds overlooking the Caribbean Sea . It has the best beach on the island with stunning views. The food at the Royal is as good if not better than the restaurants locally, although... More

We are just coming to the end of another memorable holiday at the Royal and I must say that the Hotel is now firmly back to its impressive past. Richard the General Manager is to be congratulated in turning the Hotel around during the past couple of years. The hotel and rooms are all spotlessly clean and modern and the... More

My husband, son and I stayed at the Royal for 5 nights just before Christmas 2014. The room was amazingly large with a little living room kind of thing with a pull out couch in it. The view of the ocean was amazing. My son and I lounged by the pool on the beds several times. The water in the... More

We ended up changing after staying one night at a different resort and were very happy we came to this resort. Very clean and everyone was very pleasant. They need more lounge chairs around the pool and waitstaff to service guests at the pool and beach. We always had to go to the pool whenever we wanted something to eat... More

Our room was lovely and clean. The staff was friendly and cheerful. Great drinks & bartenders. Friday nights feature fresh-caught fish fry, and Saturday was BBQ on the beach. The Chic restaurant prepares a lovely meal and features a nice wine list. Gorgeous pool-side amenities. Nice little boutique on site has a nice selection of sundresses and accessories. Would highly... More
