Had room service twice and it was good. The pools are awesome, take your own towel. Nice boardwalk. We arrived very late and were told we had to pay for stay in advance. Luckily I had read the small print on my confirmation stating advance pymt was due during peak season (no dates listed). Someone was parked in my assigned... More

Stayed at Port Royal for three nights this week. We stayed in a one bedroom room but they had a sofa bed for the kids. The room was clean and all the appliances worked. The pool is very nice as is the beach access. The elevator is dirty and smelly and the place desperately needs a makeover. The doors look... More

My family went to Port Royal to visit friends and spend time at the pool. My only complaint is that I kept noticing the lifeguards were too busy visiting with each other and not paying attention to the people in the pool. The evening bartender was awesome. She was fast and made a great Long Island Ice Tea!

Angela, Thanks for letting us know about your observations during your stay. We've sent your comments to both the Lifeguard Supervisor as well as the Food & Beverage Manager. Although our lifeguard staff is very attentive to the safety of our guests, during a shift change or position rotation, it could seem a little chatty. Our lifeguards change position typically...

For the price it was not worth it, we have had much better experiences on the Island in many other Condos, the Accommodations were not very Comfortable the sheets were old and the hot tub Jacuzzi in the Master bedroom not working well it was rusted and the jets were not all working. Not many Utensils in the Kitchen. For... More

Stayed in an updated condo and the family really enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly. Ate breakfast on property, service was great and everything tasted good. Pool was fun as expected. Played a round of golf at Palmilla Beach (beautiful but tough) which was very close by. Had a great time and will plan again for next year.

My family (4 total, one 4 year old and a 2 year old) stayed for 5 nights in June 2014. We had a 2nd story unit (6224) on the end, which was beautifully updated and stocked with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend stopping at HEB before you cross the bridge to stock up. The owners even provided games... More

We reserved a cabana last year when they were new and when we checked in we were told no cabanas were available. When we asked to talk to a manager (Melissa Dixon) she lied to us point blank and said someone called us which they did not. Another employee said that the new cabanas were not all delivered so they... More

We have been visiting this resort for 29 years! Over the years they have made wonderful improvements and made it very family friendly! The pools are awesome and I've never seen anything as grand as their pools anywhere else! We ate at the grill by the pool and the food was delicious! The drinks at the pool bar are a... More

The staff is very friendly and the condo we stayed in was very modern and comfortable. The 4 pools were great for the whole family. My kids really enjoyed the water slides. We did not enjoy the beach however because it was dirty and lots of seaweed. As a result, we ended up spending most of our time on the... More

MBBMimi hit the nail on the head with her review. We were here for six nights. The condo development was so filthy. I have NEVER stayed anywhere in Mexico that was that dirty. The poolside cabanas rent for $150 a day...dirty, stained fake wicker inside. Our sheets were torn. Nothing matched. The rags my husband uses in the garage are... More
