My husband, my friend and I returned to the RS for 3 weeks in February and had a wonderful time once again. It is like returning to see family, the same staff are there and the welcome to go with it. We ate in the hotel 18 nights out of 21 and the meals in the Dining room cannot be praised too highly . We have teiwd a lit of thw reataurants in the past and still have a few dacourites that we always visit once but the horel is such goid value if you buy the dinner or half board vouchers.We attended the carnival night special evening and heard the wonderful Russian opera singer. She had an amazing voice .
My only comment would be that the menu should be changed occasionally as I stay twice a year with my friend and she stays with us twice a year.The meals are taken outside in summer months which we enjoy but also love a February break from the British winter!!
Bruno, Gilberto, Jose , Miguel , Leticia, Katya to mention just a few who help to make our holiday so enjoyable, as are Nuno and the staff on reception , and Gill in the Vacation club office . All the staff work so hard to please the guests .
There is plenty to see around the island and it is such a safe island to holiday in. The loungers are comfortable , the pools spotlessly clean and overall a perfect holiday. The entertainment has improved a lot , the drinks are a bit pricey which tends to drive some of the guests out if the hotel. It is mostly timeshare but it is nice to meet other guests who are on an exchange programme and they are always very impressed with the Royal Savoy . I can't wait for my next visit .
