We stayed at Port Royal for a long weekend and found the resort to be a nice place for a family with children ages 4 and older to visit. We were happy with our 2 bedroom condo - very spacious and perfect for 4 adults with a small child. Our one complaint was that the pool area is quite large;... More

We have a family trip here every June, which includes ages 3-67. The staff is always friendly and rooms are clean and beautiful. Nothing but praise for Port Royal. While we appreciate the fact they provide life guards, we still use COMMON SENSE and do not leave our children unattended. How a 3 year old child could be in a... More

Thanks for your review and great parenting tips! It's important as we can't stress enough the safety of all of our guests while at the pool area. Although most resorts, condos and hotels have discontinued the use of on-site lifeguards, Port Royal provides them as a secondary layer of safety for our guests. Thanks for everything!

Ok, so, it's not a luxury resort but a great family resort! We had a 3 BR and a 2 BR condo for our party of 14 (9 adults and 5 little kids). Very roomy condos. Master suite huge with large walk in closet that easily fit a crib and/or 2 roll-a-way beds for kids. Pools were really nice with... More

Thanks for the wonderful feedback. We're happy to see you all had a blast during your stay and that the rooms were spacious enough for your families. Our waterslides do have a height requirement for insurance and safety purposes to keep our guests from injury. We hope you had a great time around the pool and for those who couldn't... More

First time at the condo--very nice 1 bedroom. Refrigerator not working and fixed quickly. Towels for pool use always stocked, food in restaurant, pool side bar (burgers and hotdogs), bistro pizza very good. When coffee pot not working, replaced quickly. Staff even called to follow-up. Everyone working there was very friendly. As for the near-drowning incidents--did not see any--life guards... More

Although this is a fun place for a family gathering with a large pool and slide it is also a dangerous place for children. This past weekend our family was staying on the property and my 3 year old grandson had a "near drowning". He was pulled from the pool by his mother, not breathing and blue. A doctor, who... More

As the the General Manager of Port Royal, this event was very upsetting and disturbing, not only to me personally but to all members of our staff. Please understand that guest safety and satisfaction while on property is our top priority.

An OK place to go with children, but definitely not a top notch resort. The lobby area and elevators looked poorly maintained, so we got worried about what would expect us in the unit we had reserved. The two bedroom unit we rented looked a little dated but very well kept. Nice view to the pool and the ocean. The... More

I will list to make it easier to follow: Over all a nice place but not luxury. Spice it up and charge more. There are a lot of people in Texas that will pay the $$. If there was a Four Seasons next door it would be filled 24-7. - reservation staff assured me we could check in early. We... More
