Just got back from the Royal Caribbean (oct 4-11 2014) and had an amazing time, we had the best room right off of the grassy deck area. Our children 3 & 4 were able to open the door in the morning and run around the huge grass deck while we had our morning coffee. The room was very nice and... More

Very nice resort. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms (2 BR suite) are comfortable and spacious. All the rooms are ocean view; if you want ocean front get buildings "A", "G" or "H". In any of the other buildings you MUST get upper floors if you want to see the ocean or else you will be looking out... More

I booked only one night at this resort because we were staying for a few nights at a much more expensive all inclusive resort the next day. We wanted to be 'in position' ready to holiday...I was able to secure a very good price for our one bedroom suite here at the Royal Caribbean, which included 2 murphy beds (there... More

Did an all girls vacation here with my best girls & really enjoyed it. The resort is beachfront however it's quite a long walk to the water. The pools are very inviting & there were ample lounge chairs. The poolside bar/restaurant service was excellent, the staff was very attentive. The on site restaurants were very good but they closed early.... More

Excellent Vacation! Love the atmosphere. The staff do a wonderful job of making your stay feel like home. The food is wonderful and the drinks are sublime. The family/children's activities kept our little one occupied for hours, and wore her out enough for sleeping in!
