From arrival to departure, I found the staff at The Royal to be extremely helpful and friendly. I checked in early one morning after a cancelled Liat flight the night before.

We stayed here again while on business and as good as last time. Troy the barman is an absolute star but to be fair, you will not find friendlier staff. Bar food is good if you need a snack and the breakfast is excellent.

Upon arrival I was offered a cool towel and a glass of champagne or fruit punch. I opted for the fruit punch as I swiftly checked in. Walking into the hotel room made me feel like a character in a harlequin romance novel where perhaps my name was Scarlet and I was about to be swept away by a strapping...

Stayed at Royal at beginning of November. Surprisingly quiet, the season hadn't really started. The room was nice and clean, housekeeping twice a day. Pool area was quite small, but always free pool chairs due to the few guests. Staff was overall very friendly and service minded. The hotel was right next to a very nice beach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Acclaimed as one of the best in St Lucia, the spectacular mile-long Reduit Beach fronts this all-suite hotel while, with a backdrop of rainforest covered hills, atmospheric Rodney Bay is reached within a few moments stroll. Standing in beautifully manicured grounds, the hotel offers an elegant blend of privacy and sophistication. Beneath palm-frond parasols, elegant furnishings allow for lazy days on the sandy beach or relax instead by the large lagoon-style swimming pool shaded by palm trees. The Royal Spa offers an enticing variety of treatments ranging from a reviving jet-lag busting massage to sensual aromatherapy and body care while, for the more energetic, the fully-equipped fitness room is available free to our guests. A delicious full buffet breakfast is included at L'Epicure, an elegant al fresco restaurant next to the beach which also offers tantalising a-la-carte dinner choices. Fine dining experiences can be enjoyed at Chic in the evening while, cooled by gentle sea breezes, the Beach Tent is a perfect venue for lunch. Perhaps enjoy a cocktail at the charming Minstrals Lounge before visiting the elegant Oriental restaurant (seasonal) or Mariners buffet, located at the adjacent St Lucian by rex resorts, or strolling in to town to experience the local ambience. Children are welcomed at the Royal and can enjoy the childrens club available on weekdays at set times at our neighbouring hotel while everyone can benefit from the wide range of activities accessible locally including water sports, horse riding, golf and exhilarating tours to explore the natural beauty of St Lucia. ... more   less
