Looking for a restful, peaceful vacation? I consider this a relaxing getaway just to unwind and catch a breath. The villas are clean, the service is wonderful, the beach is amazing. Convenient to many great restaurants. Definitely an older crowd, but it didnt matter. This was my third visit ands it feels like going home now. I want to give... More

This was our (wife and I) stay at the RC, as we traded in from a week from our Marriott timeshare. We originally landed a room on the 6th floor, but based on other reviews on TripAdvisor, I asked for a higher room....which Rolando at the front desk was able to snag for us the next day, so we ended...

I have been coming here with my family for almost 20 years, and we are never disappointed. It is not the resort for loud bachelor parties, and that's one reason we love it so much! You can still have lots of fun, just perhaps not in the way that some of the d-baggier guests might prefer. The staff is amazing,... More

This resort was recommended to us by a family friend/travel guide who has gone here with her husband for years. It is so well run, the people who work there see to your every need. It's super clean, the accommodations are perfectly laid out with a master suite, (we also had the second bedroom/bath attached), a kitchen/living room area, pool/ocean-view... More

 My wife and I love backpacking but also the luxuries that come with traveling abroad.   We spent the last month what we call flashpacking. Not quite backpacking but not quite 5 star. But a combination of the two.   Ie. Stayed in accommodation from 3 star through to 5 star suites where available yet love getting off the beaten... More

This was our second stay at one of the Royal Resorts and we are already planning our next trip. The Royal Caribbean Resort is clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 804, Building B, which faced the ocean when looking left and the pool when looking right. Awesome views! We had two days... More

Just got back from 2 weeks there and had a wonderful time. Spent most of the two weeks by the pool even though the beach is right in front. Really enjoyed the water volleyball every day at noon. The caliber of play was lousy but the friendly verbal jousting was great. Ate almost all of our meals in the villa... More

We have stayed at Royal Resorts numerous times over the years from 1 to 3 week vacations. Always top notch customer service, room service, excellent food and cleanliness of the resort. The only negative thing we can say has to do with the sales pitches when trying to find the members program available at the resorts. They are nice when... More

We just returned to the Royal Caribbean after a 10-year hiatus. To our great satisfaction, you can go home again. The resort continues to be well managed, the grounds and beach meticulously manicured, the staff helpful and friendly, and the aquamarine waters of the Caribbean as stunning as ever. We did not see or experience any of the RC "Prison"... More
