First trip to NH Royal Beach (but many trips to Caribbean)
Beach: Wide, deep with white powder sand. Walking down the beach leads to a bit grungy area after a couple of miles, walking up the beach for about three miles was fine.
Hotel: Minimalistic, modern design. Clean, Clean, Clean.
Rooms: Well designed, moden and specious. Ocenview third floor recommened. Note, as with many newer hotels, Ocean View is not Ocean Front. Veranda jacuzzi is a really nice feature. Left side of resort, looking from the lobby to the beach, gets sun while right is all shaded.
Grounds: Beautifically landscaped and immaculate.
Pool / Lazy River: Allows for socialization and quiet couple time, pool bar lively but not rowdy.
Breakfast / Lunch Buffet: Wide variety of well prepared food or individually prepared lunches to your liking.
Restuartants: Different al a carte every night if you wish. Quality good, service excellent. "Pure" is the best. Pass on "Shore Grill" which we were told was seafood but is actually roadhouse and not even a good roadhouse.
Entertainment: Royal has one bar and a large area/piazza for bands to play. There is a live band/show every night but the level of activity or dancing depends on the crowd. More activity and selection at Real.
Security: Presence is noticable without overpowering. Security maintains control over who is on Royal property and Royal section of beach. Real is easily accessible from Royal with well lit walkways and security presence.
Staff: Warm, friendly, efficent and hard working. Really nice people.
