Upon staying at the royal islander the 1st time the experience, was novel. But upon multiple trips there, the minor missteps became to much to overlook. Sometimes the bath towels were very hard. The hot water for showers was barely luke warm and upon one stay the AC was unable to be adjusted , so it was either FREEZE or... More

First. let me say this is not on the beach. You will need to take a taxi or bus to get to the beaches or Port Lucuaya. It is attractive, clean, and quite. They have free Wi-Fi and a nice restaurant. The restaurant is open for breakfast and has a $4.95 special that can't be beat. It is not open... More

Smelled like the carpet was wet and dried by it self. We turned on the AC to get some of the smell out. WRONG THING TO... More

I did not enjoy my stay here. The rooms were old and dated. Rust could be seen on the bathroom fixtures. You barely see anyone at the front desk. The towels were so hard, it feels like a grater cutting into your skin. If you want somewhere to stay without the frills, I guess this will do but I'm sure... More

I stayed here a couple of days for business. The room is very basic. There was cable tv and Miami news. There was a mini frig. The room I had was on the ground floor right on the pool deck. As I expected there were bugs in the room, ants mostly. Two of the lights didn't work. The one in... More

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
