“Simply Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Recently my girlfriend and I vacationed at RWI from 8/31 to 9/6. We chose RWI based on the recommendation of a family friend who owns a unit there. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. RWI is situated on the one of the better strips of beach than many of the resorts, with ample sand before the water. Not every resort can boast the same with narrower areas.. Also, RWI is a smaller resort, so there is not the crowded feel of some of the other places. The units are well maintained, and the grounds are immaculate. The staff was excellent and Tanisha at the front desk was the answer to any taxi, restaurant reservation, car rental or general question we had. I highly recommend this property as it is an excellent value. Although there are newer and more extravagant properties, RWI will deliver so save your $$$ for the awesome restaurants on the island. Can't wait to return. If anyone has any questions I will be glad to answer via a direct message.

Decided on a last minute trip to Provo. Never been to the Island before and was very happy with our experience, both with the resort and the area. Royal West Indies is in an ideal location on Grace Bay and within easy walking distance to a number of very good restaurants. In fact the quality of the food everywhere was extremely good. The onsite restaurant and bar at RWI (Pelican) was one of the highlights of the trip. Mario and the rest of the staff were great! very attentive and friendly. If you like walking on the beach, Grace Bay is one of the best, with over 12 miles of clean white sand, and calm, clear water. No high rise hotels, and at the North East end, very remote and quiet.

Great trip!

Room Tip: Get an Ocean view!

The resort is really nice, as well as the beach (Grace Bay's beach is amazing...). We've rented a studio botanical view...very spacious , a small kitchenette fully equipped, so we had breakfast and lunch breaks in the room ( every room has a small terrace ). The hotel provides towels, umbrellas and beach chairs, as well as some sport equipment a ( kayaks, snorkel gears, and hobby cats) so this is a very interesting feature....they provide also (on first come first serve) bikes ..so you can go the supermarket that is 5/6 blocks away from the hotel to get what you need. The ONLY minor thi no of the hotel is the front desk service (always on a very rude mode).. And sometimes you have to deal also with the maid services...several times we cam back for lunch and the room was not done....anyway, the place is perfect for a beach vacation!
Regarding restaurants nearby, Coco Bistro is very nice ( and close to this hotel...walking distance) but VERY expensive... Our best recommendation is to go to Mango Reef restaurante ( on Alexandria Villas) ...very nice restaurante ON the beach...and if you rent a car or a scooter, do not miss to go (FOR LUNCH ONLY!!!) to Boogaloos (very close to the airport)!!

Room Tip: Building 1& 2 are the ones within the beach...but botanical view is not no bad (great gardens) a...

This was our second trip to rwi and it was as great as we remembered! Stayed 7 nights in a two bedroom which is perfect for a family of four.

This trip we rented a car for our full stay which is must if you have any fishermen In your group. There is no fishing from the shore at grace bay however there's lots of self-guided bone fishing nearby. Also recommend captain Darrin Bain if you want a day/half day guided trip.

Tip...if you buy a conch shell they will confiscate it at the airport if conch are not in season so check first.

My girlfriend and I stayed at RWI from 8/29/13-9/2/13. We had a fantastic time from check-in to check-out. We were greeted with yummy rum punch, check-in was a breeze and our bags were immediately brought to our room. We stayed in a studio botanical room overlooking the impeccable grounds and a slight view of the ocean. Room was nice, clean and spacious.

The restaurant on site was pretty good, a bit on the pricey side but that's expected for T&C. Daily Happy Hour is a plus.

Overall, we had a fantastic trip and would definitely stay at this resort on our next trip.

Last month my wife and I spent eight days at the Royal West Indies Resort. We had a wonderful time and were able to get the relaxation and quiet we needed. We had a third floor room with large terrace. The room and grounds are kept up and clean. We appreciated the beautiful gardens surrounding the property. We even thanked one of the grounds keepers for the superb job. The staff was always helpful and accommodating. Our only issue was that the "quiet pool area " although marked with a few signs was not always quiet. We understand that the facility can not always police the pool but perhaps larger signs would instruct some guests that their yelling children needed to go to the second pool area to play. The Pelican restaurant on site always served delicious dishes, whether for a snack, lunch or dinner. We are already planning to return as soon as we are able.

Room Tip: The 500 series rooms, higher floors, offer you a nice terrace and view of the grounds with partial o...

We have stayed at this property 5 out of the last 7 years. We have enjoyed each time. It is not a 5 diamond property and does not advertise as such. It is a nice, clean, beautiful property. The restaurant is ok but you are with in walking distance of two of the best on the island. The staff at the condo are very accommodating. Always remember island time is real. The people just operate that way. I am sure if you spent two weeks there you would adjust very nicely.

Room Tip: Ocean view is great but most garden views are fine. Ocean front does not appear to be a value.
