I spent a week at the Royal; my son and his bride were at another local resort. I found the Royal to be elegant and of the upmost quality. The staff was helpful; taxis were available within minutes; local restaurants were in walking distance and the beachfront was breathtaking. Tho' not "all inclusive", we found the Royal to be a better value and the rooms larger , more elegant than our fellow travelers'. The outdoor food/beverage service was a bit sluggish; but everything else was top notch. The hotel restaurant was excellent.

We would highly recommend the Coco Palm for best value for the $. The grounds and pool were beautiful, quite and relaxing. We would NOT RECOMMEND staying in the 'Creole' side of the hotel. It is extremely old and night and day from the main area of the hotel. Upon check-in we were placed in a Creole room - it was old and gross, nothing comfortable about it and woke up to a bathroom full of bugs... The hotel management went above and beyond to fix the problem and moved us to the main area of the hotel. From then on I would give the hotel a complete thumbs-up. The hotel food was fabulous. The only other things to be mindful of here is to make sure you ask if it is Happy Hour (5-6). We ordered a drink literally at 4:59 and were charged full price. Also, all prices were quoted in US$, then when you check out it is converted back to EC and then on your credit card US $ - which means they are playing the exchange rate (approx. 2.6 EC to 1 USD)up a lot! Robney Bay was AWESOME. I would recommend not renting a car and staying local to the hotel/resort.
