The Royal Hawaiian is my favorite hotel in the Wildwoods. A clean, friendly, excellently run hotel adjacent to an excellent section of the beach in Wildwood Crest, it has everything you need for a great beach vacation.
Firstly, and in my opinion most importantly, it has perhaps the largest pool of any hotel on the island. A long pool with an island in the middle, it ranges from 2 feet to 11 feet, with a substantial (2 ft. deep) walled off but attached kiddie section, and a separate hot tub area. Check out the pool area on Google satellite view.
There are two propane grills and a handful of picnic tables for public use, a bicycle rack, sun deck, a game room, laundry room and a snack bar that serves breakfast and lunch, and also sells a full range of pool and sand toys, suntan lotions, and other sundries. There is on site parking so that every room has one parking space (unassigned), and the four or five largest (2 bedroom) suites have assigned tandem parking spaces, so the occupants of those units can bring two cars with them.
I stayed here two years ago, and came back again this past week. I will be back again next summer. I recommend this hotel without reservation.
