“Back for Second Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

After enjoying our last stay at The Royal Beach and as the location was perfect, we looked around at other options but chose to return for a 10 day stay. We landed a room on the second floor just near reception was was perfect (last time was a long haul walk to the back) and the grounds, pools and overall condition of the hotel has been maintained and for a resort of this size and occupancy still maintains it's sense of peace and serenity. Nothing beats that feeling of returning after a hot sweaty day out shopping/exploring to coming back and relaxing by one of the pools with a cocktail !
The previous issues with WiFi seem to have been sorted out and apart from the odd busy period we never had any dramas connecting in either our room or out in the grounds. The service we received from all the staff was genuine and caring and they couldn't go out of their way to help us when needed.

8 nights at this Hotel was not enough we will be booking again next year but staying a few extra days. Highly recommend this Hotel and staff. Pools were lovely, food was fantastic and loved our room. Thanks to all the staff for making it a memorable holiday.

Stayed here as a short tack-on to a business trip and loved it. Great, comfortable room with balcony. Everything you might need is in room. The pool is fantastic (and HUGE) and entire back area faces the beach (which is also HUGE). Great service, beautiful campus, close to restaurants and shops too.

Just back from a week at the Royal, we were offered a rate and paid for an upgrade to a 2 bed villa. We are a family of 4, 2 adult daughters. We didn't swim in the resort pools as we had our own! The villa and it's pool, day bed and space outside was wonderful. Inside was large, comfortable, and the traditional features add to the feel of luxury. Clean, constantly maintained inside and out. The service was wonderful. Gardens perfect and lush. We ate in the hotel quite a bit, not to mention all the cocktails by the beach, all great. We did have to use taxis more than we had anticipated to get to quality shops and restaurants (yes we are spoilt and fussy), so not right in the heart of Seminyak - but we chose to be by the beach. The resort is a little old and some things worn, but that is way overshadowed by all the positives. We loved it, and felt very spoilt. It is a beautiful resort!!! Thanks to the management and staff for a great week.

Nothing but praise for the Royal Beach resort. The grounds are superb - spacious with glorious gardens and ocean frontage. Two distinctly different pools - the garden one is like an oasis. Friendly staff throughout, a great buffet breakfast in a delightful big setting with views to the gardens and pool. Room was fine - bit dark maybe ? And location was nice - oh so nice to spend the early evenings in a bean bag on the beach just down from the resort listening to live music. Will be back.

The hotel has a gorgeous pool area that leads out to the beach. We were able to leave our stuff by our pool chairs, go to the ocean for a bit, and come back and relax. It's a very short walk up the road to lots of restaurants and stores (there are so many more stores than I would have ever imagined in the Seminyak area!)

The room was huge and beautiful. We had a first-floor garden view near the pool. I'm sure the ocean-view rooms are even more impressive.

The service was wonderful -- lots of smiles everywhere.

The restaurant was quite good. The night we dined there, around 9pm, there was almost nobody there. The waiters were wonderful. The prices were quite good, given that this is a resort. It is much cheaper on the street, but the open environment, right on the pool, was wonderful.

The security is good -- they always check who's in the taxi with you when you arrive -- but not overly intrusive.

I can't think of anything I didn't enjoy during our short 2 night stay.

One thing to note, only related to the general location of the hotel, is that the traffic in Seminyak can be horrendous. It took us almost 1.5 hours to drive to Tanah Lot (about 10 miles?) at 4pm on a Saturday. It was literally quicker to walk -- we watched as people passed us several times -- all while doing their shopping. Just something to keep in mind, if you are going to go anywhere on a day-trip from the hotel.
