I was a grumpy person when I arrived and left feeling mentally refreshed and ready to go back to reality. Staff like Stephanie, Giovanni, Marc, Joe, Rebecca and Jordan all provided great customer care. My room overlooked the ocean and I don't think I ever closed the lanai door while I was there; the amazing breeze and the sound of the ocean was just a dream. I stayed in room 9033 and in spite of the carpets needing an update, housekeeping keeps these room very clean for your arrival! Note that there was not housekeeping service during Covid so I just called when I needed fresh towels and the trash removed.....it was ALL fine by me! RLR is a great location because of the access to the beach walk, it's not surrounded by mega resorts and it has some nearby conveniences that are in walking distance. But, I was glad I had a car because I was able to go to the market and stock up the (small) fridge with some snacks as I spent time 'socially isolating' on my lanai in between pool/beach visits. The beach is perfect and swimmable. Finally, excellent Covid rules in place. Thank you RLR for helping this mom hit Restart!

Well for starters I have stayed in hotels on and off for many years I travel for work and I have never seen such a clean hotel 😸 on top of the fact the room smelled like it was brand new the bed sheets looked like we'll didn't even have a crease on the sheets . The cleaning staff and the front desk personal we're very polite and made me and my family feel very comfortable. I can be reached at 6463069778 please feel free to call me and again thank you .
