We stayed this past May for 6 nights in oceanview room. We usually stay at Sandals resort but decided to try Royal Hideaway this time. The resort is small and beautiful. The beach is the best, long clean white sand calm. The pool areas are many and the main pool is magnificent. The staff goes above and beyond to make... More

Had such a great time at this spot that we are booking a return trip this fall. Quiet and relaxing, but still plenty of room to have some fun. For an all inclusive the food was great. We tried every restaurant on our stay and had our favorites, but never a bad meal. The service was above and beyond. Our... More

My husband and I just stayed here to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Before deciding on this place, I did my homework and weighed out the options on what we were looking for, needed, and wanted. Royal Hideaway accomplished it all! Our two small kids were staying with the grandparents, so we intentionally wanted a place where there were no kids... More

First time for my husband and I to do an "all inclusive", we usually cruise. The Royal Hideaway was beyond my expectations and I was so sad to have to leave. My husband said we would go back next summer. The food was fantastic, one waiter in particular, Lorenzo from Spices was terrific. He learned our names the first day... More

This is a low key resort for couples, no kids are allowed. It was a great resort for my wife to have a nice quiet romantic getaway. It only has around 200 rooms divided up among 9 three level buildings. There are no elevators in the buildings where the rooms are located. There are 5 restaurants, 2 that alternate breakfast...

From the moment you enter the gate to the moment you leave you reeled pampered by each member of the staff. Everyone is helpful. The food was great and presented beautifully. If you wanted something special they tried to accommodate you as well. The staff around the pool was fun and attentive. We will be returning to this wonderful resort... More
