Good three star hotel. Very nice and helpful service people . Room big but not flash because too many mattresses on bed and shower hard to get right temperature . Ambience and dark wood decor of hotel interior similar to some south east Asian

close to center/airport. clean rooms, staff very friendly. service is very slow- feels like everything is done in slow motion from check in to check out to restaurant services. breakfast is good. no gym /exercise facilities. Pool is nice and clean. can be a little noisy if room is facing the street. Wifi not great if your room is far... More

The hotel staff is very friendly, like most of the locals in Santa Cruz. They do not have power adapters you can borrow for your electronics, and the WiFi is spotty at best. It works decent about 3 am when you don't have to share it, otherwise it's slower than dialup used to be. The 3rd floor was not good,... More

I have stayed at this hotel for about ten years since it first opened. I have seen it go down completely. For about the first 5 years it opened it was great, now due to almost no maintanence it has gotten bad. Also, there are Robbers with Fake ID's driving around the area saying they are COP's and robbing guests... More

Spent a night at Royal Lodge before catching return flight to US. Hotel was recommended by several long term Bolivian residents with American roots. The hotel was a good pick. It is relatively close to the airport--about a twenty minutes taxi ride in afternoon traffic. There are few options closer. Taxi ride is set 60 Bol. Hotel is in a... More

I stayed in the Royal in August 2011 during a short business trip, coming from La Paz. At least it´s warmer here than in La Paz was my initial thought, having arrived in Santa Cruz... From outside, the hotel looked "OK" - but during my stay, I´ve found a number of aspects which made me giving an "average" to this... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week on business. Three nights, including the one I arrived, there were no towels in my room (the first time I was wondering whether - could it be? - you don't get towels in Bolivian hotels?). Breakfasts were a disappointment. Sugary coloured drinks that pretended to be juice, sugary white-dough pastries, some scrambled... More
