“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

The location of this resort is perfect, close to grocery store, shops and Coco Bistro. We stayed in room 233 which had a wonderful view of the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable and I felt like it was a value for the money especially with how expensive all the resorts were in Grace Bay! The main advice I can give is to call a few days before if you have requested a king bed and make sure you are in a room with a king bed. The first night we were put in a room with a queen bed and our confirmation stated a king. They were booked up that night so they moved us the next day to a suitable room. This is a condo hotel so each room is owned separately so not all the rooms have the same amenities. They corrected the issue so overall we were happy. The 1st night we were there they had a happy hour on the beach which was nice. The restaurant on the property is great for lunch, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for dinner, because there were so many great restaurants to go to on the island. The beach was pretty, was easy to get a chairs and the resort is very quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly.

This hotel is very nice. Its very laid back and the grounds are beautiful. When we arrived they informed us our room was not ready yet but allowed us to change and told us where the bar was. They also informed us that the room we had did not have a full bed which we request but two twin beds. But we were ok with this. They found us at the bar when our room was ready. The room was nice with a balcony.

BUT the HUGE disappointment was we paid extra for an "Ocean View" and our view was of the pool. You could see a tiny sliver of blue water above all the trees. We went back to the front desk to ask about this. They did nothing for us just told us that that was what they consider an Ocean View. I have attach a picture of our Ocean view.

All in all its a nice hotel, you can sign out bikes for free to ride into town but you have a 2 hour limit. Beach is beautiful. If you are looking for a laid back hotel this is the one for you. They dont wait on you hand and foot but thats ok we didnt want that.

Room Tip: If you want to really have an Ocean View get the Ocean front rooms. There is one building that you c...

We stayed here for our babymoon and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff service is the amazing! The hotel is a bit dated but given the price I cannot complain. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was spotless. The rooms have kitchenettes so you can store food. My wife didn't like the lizards everywhere but they didn't seem to bother anyone else. Lastly, the beach view is breathe taking.

Room Tip: bring a cooler to store your own beers when you hit the beach!

Ideal place to stay for couples or family who love the beach. Very quiet, peaceful and you are right on the beach. Most rooms have kitchens, fridge, microwave ovens, washer/drier, etc.. We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and really enjoyed the place.

Room Tip: Make sure you call them about which amenities you get in your room, because not all have kitchens. I...

We recently returned from a wonderful stay at the Royal West Indies. The location on the beach is perfect - we thought RWI had the best beach on Grace Bay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had no issues with the housekeeping or cleanliness of the unit. We loved the fact that it is a small property and you felt as if you were at home.

Room Tip: We had a botanical view room just outside the quiet pool on the main floor. It was a short walk to t...

Apologies for the delay in writing this review. We vacationed here in June of 2012.

This was our second trip to TCI and won't be our last! We are in love with Grace Bay like most of everyone is when then visit.

We couldn't confirm 7 nights in a 1 bedroom gardenview so we booked for the first night in a Studio gardenview and the next 6 nights in the 1 bedroom. The staff organized it so well for us that after the first night, our 1 bedroom was ready for us literally next door! We didn't have to trek through the resort to another room block. We were so pleasantly surprised by this!

The studio was large with a microwave and mini-fridge. The king bed was comfortable and the room was immaculate. The 1 bedroom was the same, large dining area, sitting area, kitchen with all the amenities, washer/dryer, separate bedroom and large wrap-around balcony with a table and 4 chairs. The unit was also equipped with every kitchen appliance/utensil you would need for your stay.

Even though we had a gardenview, we did have a small slice of ocean-view which was a pleasant surprise. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning, admiring the lush, tropical palms and vegetation, the bountiful flowers. On the other side of our balcony, we had views of the jacuzzi and pool.

We ate a few times at the Pelican, mainly lunch items like fries and conch fritters which are the best I have had anywhere! Yes the service is on island time, but you're on vacation, no need to hurry anywhere other than to the amazing beach!

We walked to Graceway Gourmet almost every night to have a coffee out on the patio. It's about a 10 minute walk but we didn't mind at all. We always feel safe walking around any time of day.

We rented a car for a few days with Avis this time and the whole process was simple. We had picked up the rental in Grace Bay and dropped it off at the airport before our departure.

We enjoyed the quiet pool and often went down around 10pm to lounge in the water and then sit in the hot tub for a little while. The WIFI was strong and never had any problems with that.

The only thing I would recommend for this hotel would be to add a few BBQ grills like they have at OCW. We missed out on bbq-ing by the pool.

This is a quiet resort, definitely a place to get some rest and relaxation. I would return to RWI and highly recommend this for your next holiday.

Room Tip: Second floor for shade and in case it rains, you can still enjoy the balcony!

Royal West Indies Resort was very handy to grocery and retail shopping (5min by bike, 15 walking) but far enough away to be very quiet. House keeping was excellant. We were very impressed when we came back in from excursions, and found they had cleaned our morning dishes! Great beach, very central; you don't have to worry about stepping on shells or anything sharp. If you do want to beach comb you can walk up the beach a short ways and collect shells. We were in building 8 nearest the road and would recommend building 1, 2 or 3 closer to the beach. The living room celing fan ceased up and we reported this to staff late afternoon; we said it would be fine if they fixed it the next day. Early afternoon the next day we had to call in again to have the ceiling fan fixed. The fan was fixed...but the next day the resort had a power failure and the fan ceased up again.

Room Tip: There are 8 buildings. The ones closer to the beach are low number ie 1. The building closer to th...
