My friend and I stayed at the Royal Antiguan 3rd - 11th Sept 2003. The hotel is shabby, in desperate need of investment. The pool is dirty, with rough concrete under the water so you end up with many cuts and scratches, so be careful. The staff are rude, badly trained and no customer service exists. I only met 2 nice staff whilst staying there. The food is mediocre and very expensive - at least 4 times more expensive than other places in St Johns. It is also expensive to get out of the resort in taxi's - so try to share with others to keep the cost down. The only good thing is the beach which is beautiful. However, you will be hassled to buy trips, which are more expensive than properly organised trips - so be aware. Also I was propositioned on the beach with the person exposing himself! If you are female you will be hassled. All inclusive does not include a whole host of things, so make sure you have taken a fair amount of money with you. The best thing to do is not go all inclusive and then get out of the hotel on the properly organised boat trips, which are fantastic. You are away all day and are given free drinks and a barbecue for lunch. The island is beautiful and well worth exploring.
