We loved unit 910. It was clean, updated interior, comfortable beds, great view and a well appointed kitchen. We will most definitely be back. We loved the view. The unit has all the comforts of home at the beach. We understood that each unit in this building is individually owned, and that results in the experience differing by unit.

We found this to be pretty disappointing. It wasn't unbearable-we stayed six days, but there were numerous things we were accustomed to having that were absent. It appeared that someone slopped soft drink all over the carpet in our unit that was not cleaned up. All the dishes had to be washed before we would use them. The dishwasher was... More

People complain too much -- this area has been around for decades, and there are some things you can't change. You want luxury, go to Hilton Head. OCEANFRONT!! The room was relatively clean (a few minor things), the bed was okay comfort, couch and love seat were droopy for sitting and not very comfortable for sleeping. No drips, leaks, problems... More

This is my second year staying at royal garden and two years in a row I am disappointed. I came with my family to this "resort" and you get what you pay for and maybe even a little less. I decided to come back this year thinking that my experience last year was a one time thing and deserves a... More

We stayed memorial day week which is black bike week and there were some bikers staying at RG, but besides the news, there was no trouble in our vicinity. No long waits at restaurants either which was nice! Upon our entrance (#702) Walking in wasn't easy, the locked was jammed and they never did come to fix or change it... More

We enjoyed our stay. Oceanfront was gorgeous! Unit was clean but furnishings were a little dated. Employees were very nice and helpful. The man who worked the parking garage at night was very nice. Parking lot was a little tight. Pools could use some work. Not a lot of beachfront especially at high tide.

My husband, myself, son and daughter-in-law stayed in unit 1112. It was very nice. Master bathroom looks like it was recently remodeled. Hall bathroom ceiling tiles could be replaced. Kitchen and living room were nice. Kitchen had whatever you need to cook. Overall we were very pleased with this unit. As far as all the complaints with the elevator and... More

Read all the reviews before we stayed here. Most weren't very favorable. The group I was with rented two 2-bedroom condos, next to each other on the 9th floor. The units weren't filthy as some people described, but they definitely didn't appear to be "sparkly" either. The building as many others stated is in great need of renovation. Our particular...

room was dirty, maintenance man was very rude when asked to look at sink. Elevators were VERY slow. Would not give but 6 towels for 6 guests. Linen was stained. Shower curtains rings were broken. I have stayed here for many years and this is the 1st time I have ever had complaints.

My family and I really enjoy our room 1512 and the resort. After reading some reviews before coming I was a bit worried about the usual complaints. The parking being too tight. The pool being dirty. The elevators too slow or smelly and dirty. Those complaints I think were a little nit picky. Your at a beach. It's gonna happen... More
