This is our second year of summer family vacation in Montauk and our first stay at the Royal Atlantic. Let's face it - Montauk is honky tonk compared to neighboring Hampton towns and that is just PERFECT if you are vacationing with your kids. We knew what to expect since our last stay was at a hotel next door and compared to that "joint", this was just perfect.
After reading all of the reviews, I was expecting the worst. OK - the room is not 5 star or even close, but it IS ON THE BEACH. Say no more. We come here from Connecticut for the beach, the surf and the ease of never wearing anything fancier than our flip flops for a week.
Our ocean front room didn't smell (like other reviewers said), the bathroom was small but clean and redone with new tiles and bath/shower. The small kitchenette was sufficient for our needs. The 2 double beds were ok for our stay. The best part was the deck with the million dollar view. Down a few steps to the sand and your "private" lounges. The free breakfast worked out just fine and it was nice to saunter out for a little meal after a cup of joe in your room.
The place is full of kids. Great for the little ones. The pool is a zoo with families during the day, but great for a swim after a long day in the surf. The ocean is of course spectacular. We hit some bad, read COLD and sometimes RAINY, weather, but the beach was still beautiful Great for walks, sand castles, kite flying and eveing bonfires/s'mores.
All in all the Royal Atlantic is what it is. A family hotel ON the beach in Montauk. Walk to stores, restaurants, the best bakery, homemade ice cream, and of course mini golf. Have a great time with your family and enjoy the laid back atmosphere.
