My husband and I stayed at the Royal October 23-27. We were in St. Lucia for a friend’s wedding (they stayed at the Sandals Regency – see comments below) and I choose the Royal based on the reviews I read here. The resort – the Royal is beautiful in a relaxing, laid-back sort of way. Some reviews have said that... More

We stayed for two weeks at this hotel in late May 2005. From reviews we had read on here we knew the transfer would be a long one and it took around an hour on windy roads (but with great scenery)! The rum punch on arrival was very welcome! We booked a Beachfront Suite, one of only 8 at the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Royal in early November. The property is quite nice. The rooms were just as expected from other reviews and photos. They were very clean. While not as luxurious as some of the other places we have stayed, we were pleased with the accommodations. The only problem we had with the room was the... More

We went to St. Lucia for one week (honeymoon) and were quite disappointed. My whole life I had this image in mind that this island was luxurious and unique from the other Caribbean islands. In fact, it was very poor, very undevelopped, and not the resort-environment I expected. The hotel service was very good, but the amenities, decor, furniture, etc.... More

My wife and I stayed at this resort for four days back in May 2006. It was our first visit to this resort. We stayed at the Windjammer Landing resort the prior week. 1. The room large with a step up bedroom area. The bathroom was large with a large shower with dual shower heads. The furniture was a little... More

My wife and I stayed at the Royal by Rex in mid-September 2006 and thought it was a wonderful experience. The suites at the Royal are very spacious, with a large bathroom, bedroom area, and sitting area, plus a patio. Some have complained about the decor, but honestly, it felt very "beachy" to us, and my only complaint was that... More

My husband and I stayed for a few days in August. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were big. The bathroom was huge with a seperate tub and shower. The bathtub only had scalding hot water. I was determined to have a bath, so I half filled it, and threw buckets of ice until it was just... More

We just felt we had to respond to the previous review - we stayed at the Royal in Rodney Bay and had a completely different experience. Our stay was wonderful - while the rooms are older they are large, comfortable and very clean - the housekeeping couldn't be faulted and the turn down service included rose petals....There was a humming...

I cannot believe all of the good reviews this place is getting! I wonder if these people were even staying at the same place. My wife and I stayed here after staying in Soufriere at Ladera, which was absolutely incredible by the way. Royal by Rex is a dump. Plain and simple. All you need to do is walk around... More

We stayed at the Royal as part of an Air Jamaica vacation package for three nights in July. As stated in many other reviews, this place was pastel, brass and popcorn ceilings but still cozy, charming and very beachy. The staff overcompensated for the fact that the entire establishment needed a fresh coat of paint. They were always smiling, always... More
