Housekeepers cleaned only half of our condo, pullout sofa was unmade, floor uncleaned, etc, etc. With 4 registered guests we got only 2 bath towels, even after complains. Pool towels are threadbare and on a very small size, more like kitchen towels. Hallway dirty. For $400 a night one expects much more then one gets. Will not come back.

This was our third time to visit Port royal in as many years. The pool area was generally kept in good condition with early morning worker cleaning up and preparing for the day. However, there is little or no maintenance in the living quarter area. The hallways are dirty with leftover trash (smelly seafood) and bird dropping everywhere. I doubt... More

Our whole family/extended family has been coming to Port Royal for over twenty years, so they must be doing something right. During that time our yearly visits have been mostly good, with just a few exceptions. We rent several 2 bedroom condos with pool views. It is true that not all condos are the same~~some are much nicer than others.... More

For what we paid for our 3 bedroom unit, I expected a lot. On many fronts, they met my expectations. The pool was great. My kids didn't want to leave it! Great areas for all ages. Our room was updated and parking was every close to our unit. My main complaint was housekeeping. They didn't do a complete job any... More

We just left our 5 night stay at Port Royal. We go every year for a family trip and this year was no different. However, I may start looking for somewhere else to stay next year after getting a crappy unit at 650$ a night. We got room 6108 and I think that's where most of my problems stem from.... More

We go here every year and always enjoy it! Our room that we stayed in the last 2 years was nicely furnished and for the most part clean. The pool is well maintained. I agree with another's comment about the stairwells/hallways seeming dirty, but as I understand it will be "cleaned up/refreshed" this fall....I have to remind myself that the... More

Man oh man, I wish I liked this property... Unfortunately I just can't recommend it. Our room wasn't ready, we came in a bit early. The front office said they would call us when it was ready but they didn't... we waited and waited and finally my wife asked about our room and they said "oh yeah it's been ready... More

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...
