we stayed here in January after being relocated from the Marhaba Salem as it was closed for refurb. First half of the holiday we had one of the rooms in the outside annex .... the room was heated but very basic and the building was noisy and echoing. This was not the standard of room we booked. The hotel was fully booked and we moved to a room inside the hotel for the last half; what a difference! We could not complain about this room; kingsize bed, roomy, lovely bathroom. There is some building work at Royal too as they are renovating an outside block near the back of the hotel; the noise didn't bother us even though we were right opposite but other guests had asked to move rooms.
Our other grumble was the seating arrangements in the restaurant. After a very confusing start as to where we were 'allowed' to sit (even though we were always seated by a waiter) and a couple of embarrassing altercations with a waiter and a group of guests the restaurant manager allocated seats on a table between 2 couples, very cosy! The management of tables when the manager is off needs to be looked at.
The reception staff and the spa guys are great.Our waiter was very attentive. Food got better after 4 days but was not very warm (there is a microwave). Indoor pool with jacuzzi, steam and sauna fantastic. The bar men were brilliant constantly running around to serve you at your seat. Wifi worked in our bedroom in the hotel and there is a cyber cafe. Grounds are beautiful.
Any questions please ask.
