However all of the furnishings were dated the bathroom needs an upgrade and the bedding left much to be desired however the breakfast was very good and inexpensively priced there is a convenience store within walking distance and also is Cinema near by good hotel if you're just in town for a few days...

Accommodation 3*** - Rooms are clean and have a fridge inside. Bathroom is a little bit dated. Pool, Restaurant, Location 3*** - The pool is okay so is the restaurant. The hotel is on the road to Lucaya and you will need a cab or your own wheels to get to the beach. Would recommend this hotel only as an... More

We arrived here by rental car from Brad's Auto about 2PM. They had been expecting us and so our check in was pleasant with a very friendly staff. We even got the internet for free, although there is usually an extra charge. Most times it was good, but not great. We were fortunate as there were hardly any guests this... More

I was given a smoking room and the scent was strong so I tried to spend as little time as possible in it. The furniture in the room was dated, but it was clean. The pool looked inviting. There is a $10.00 fee for Wifi, which is to expensive. I ate at the restaurant and the food was ok. The... More

It is not on the beach. That is the main drawback. It is in the middle of town. But, it is reasonably priced and you can get to the beach, shops, casino, and everything else for a $1.25 bus ride. The place has a nice pool, hot tub, ande restarant. The people are very friendly and helpful. They also have... More

Three of us stayed here for work purposes. All given double rooms but were widely spaced apart due to most rooms being twins. In none of the rooms did the showers work properly. Low pressure understandable due to the water supply on the island but all the shower heads could have been doing with dismantled and cleaned as only about... More

The hotel is nice but needs minor repairs. If not done, things will only get worse. Safety is of concern based on no active phone in the rooms that work. This has been going on for some period of time. If you need the front desk or security, you have to walk up to the front desk. The rooms need... More

We found ourselves 'stuck' in Freeport while our boat was being repaired so needed a place to stay. The Royal Islander is basically a standard motel but the price was excellent and we found it to be well cared for and clean with friendly staff. It is located in the downtown area near the International Bazaar, which lacks much in... More

This is my fourth trip to Freeport and my fourth stay at the Royal Islander. As you may guess by the fact that I keep coming back here, I am well satisfied with the property. They are not on the beach and therefore have a better price and are quieter. There are a lot of kids in Freeport now for... More
