The Royal is located in Castries within walking distance of numerous restaurants, a little mall, grocery store, rental car places, and a marina. The hotel's beach is nice - there a good snorkeling spots 200-300 yards down (left) from the hotel and also at a nearby island (you have to pay somebody to take you over to it - they'll... More

This resort was fantastic. The pool, restaurant dining, beach access and room amenities were first class. I was most impressed with the front desk staff and the cleaning staff. Fresh flowers on the beds upon arrival, turn down service at night and plush terry cloth robes made me feel extra special. The restaurant service was slow, but that's just the... More

I have been traveling to St. Lucia since 2003. I have stayed at other hotels in St. Lucia but the Royal is by far THE BEST!!!! The rooms, the beach, the cost, the food, cleanliness, and especially the staff, far exceeds that of their competitors. If you are going to St. Lucia for the Jazz Festival, the Royal is a... More

I sometimes have difficulty rating and reviewing Caribbean hotels. I try to be empathetic with the fact that they are not on the same standard as the USA or Canada, so I'll do my best to take that into account with this hotel. I feel that even with that said, this hotel needs a renovation. I find the floral wood... More

My husband and have just returned from st lucia where we celebrated our 25th wedding aniversry. As per other reviews the hotel is in need of a lick of paint but the room suites are very spacious and its location on the beach is fabulous. Sadly, as it was out of season, the hotel was very quiet and would have... More

My husband and I returned yesterday from a wonderful vacation at the Royal by Rex in Castries. We were excited to get out of the horrible Washington DC weather and could not wait to get to St. Lucia. The cab ride from the main airport is about 1 1/2 hours, but it is a BEAUTIFUL ride to the hotel and... More

We had a ocean front suite and a suite in the main building. The ocean front suite was outdated with dirty old rugs. The bed had only one sheet with a quilt that I found doubtful was washed from past guests. The bathroom had only a window for venting and staff would wake us up early in the morning laughing...

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
