We returned the Royal in St Lucia in mid October, for our 4th visit. This time we were staying in a wonderful suite with a big balcony facing the ocean. The friendliness of the staff and the overall ambiance of the hotel is fabulous. The suite had been completely renovated and the bathroom was outstanding with state of the art modern design. The shower was simply wonderful.
Every time we come to St Lucia and stay at the Royal we talk about the friendliness of everyone working there. Whether it be the staff in the lobby, in the restaurants or the maids. We already know some of the staff because of us coming back again and again. This time we always got a little evening treat to our room, which was very nice. We also were really pleased with the breakfast and our favourite was the St Lucian saltifsh and bakes with the local coco tea. It's quite addictive :)
The location right on the beach is superb, beautiful clear water good for swimming, snorkling or/and sunbathing. Outside of the hotel you have Rodney Bay, where there are many things to do.But for relaxing and romancing, the hotel itself is the best place to be. Sitting on the balcony watching the sailboats on the water during the day and then the beautiful sunset at night is an experience I would not want to have missed. It's like being in Paradise. We just came back home and we are already planning my next visit :)
