We stayed for a full week, Thursday to Thursday, and had a ocean view room. Here's a few things I'd like to mention about this hotel and it's staff: The room was excellent. Clean and newly remodeled. It was set up like a sweet with a raised and separate bedroom & bath. Dark wood floors and molding, light drapes and...

We had a great time staying in a suite, it was so romantic the way they designed the room! I fell in love with it for one week! People who work there were very friendly and polite. Breakfast is delicious! Beach is right there with nice sunbeds and you can get massages right there id you want!

We moved to this hotel after not liking our first choice of accommodation. The staff were great at showing us round and showing us a sample room, and we quickly decided to move here. The location is great, in the middle of Rodney Bay so easy walking distance to some great restaurants nearby. Our room was nice, looked recently renovated...

I was nearly put off by a previous reviewer's comments on the temperature of the pool as I have a 17 month old child.. Thankfully I went. The hotel - and the pool temperature - was perfect. The staff were incredibly friendly, and despite having very few children at the hotel, the staff were delightful and extremely welcoming to him,...

I won't dwell too long with this review as St Lucia just wasn't my bag. Too little to do for too high a price. It was a beautiful country for sure but nowhere near as beautiful as some of the places I've seen in Thailand. I think a certain set of people visit this island and I don't belong to...

Thank you for posting your comments on your visit to St Lucia in June 2012 . It is most unfortunate that you did not find St Lucia as lively as you expected.

I stayed there for a weekend . It is situated within walking distance to all the great restaurants and bars, The room or should I say the suite was incredible. The service impeccable. The beach , bar and facility is fantastic, the pool is one straight from Hawaii. Well worth the cost of accommodation.

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
