Really great service!!! The staff were all fantastic and went out of their way to make all guests welcome and included in any activities. We had a minor mix up with our room booking, but when brought to managers attention they went above and beyond to fix the issue. Great food, pools, beach and beautiful sunsets!!!

We stayed here two weeks ago for a week after climbing Kilimanjaro. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a week on the mountain! We were impressed with the range of drinks included in the all inclusive menu, including lots of delicious cocktails. I am a vegetarian and I found the variety and quality of food available... More

We were treated like honoured guests from the time we arrived until we left. The food was excellent with a huge variety that accommodates specific dietary needs, from vegetarian to gluten free. We needed... More

We stayed here for four nights to round off a long holiday and relax before heading home. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the manager who quickly ascertained that we has arrived to relax and therefore didn't try to sell us any excursions (but said to ask if we wanted). We were then shown to our room... More

Booked a 5 day stay here straight from Safari in Kenya. We were 4 ladies and after reading reports on here, we were really looking forward to our luxury stay. The setting is great, right on the beach and ocean front, the grounds are really very beautiful, gorgeous swimming pools, and very likable and attentive staff. We were all inclusive,... More

The staff at the Royal were really friendly and helpful, unfortunately the hotel itself looks tired, it is in desperate need of an update. We went for the all inclusive option only to be told we should pay extra for the additional evening meals they offer on the beach as the food would be fresh whereas the food in the... More

We booked the all inclusive for a week. Room was lovely, beach was great, plenty of extra sun loungers so we didn't have to get up early to get a good spot by the pool or the beach. The food was great, good variety and options for lunch locations. Dinner moved to various locations and formats in the resort so... More
