This is a nice clean hotel, just a block away from the market ,we liked the enclosed parking , the breakfast was included better than we expected ,the only thing wrong is that the walls are too thin ,bring plugs next time!

The room had a damp smell to it that I didn't like, but I bet that is hard to avoid in this area. The location was just a little away from the busier streets of... More

We just stayed here for four nights over New Years. Granted, it is incredibly hard to find accommodations during that time, we were charged $140 a night for a dingy little corner room. Yes, hot water and a/c is awesome but the room was so tiny and the walls are so thin you hear EVERYTHING going on around you. I... More

Although the shower had a hot water no hot water. But it was a psychological win. Its spacious and has ac but sacrifice a few squre feet and there are better options closer to beach. I had corner room no heavy curtains so was bright early

The bed was really comfortable, and the hotel is very quiet, so we slept really well. There is super fast fast wifi. they have a roof top balcony, which serves as a great vantage point to see the going ons of... More

I have stayed many times at Hotel Royal Chateau since 2006. I have also stayed in other hotels in the area. I like this hotel because the rooms are big, the water is HOT, the beds are firm and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, and the hotel has a central location just 4 blocks from the beach. They provide... More
