I stayed at Royal by Rex In Castries, St. Lucia 5 days and really loved it. I was fortunate to get a newly renovated room that was great. When I entered the room the bed was covered with flowers, the living room had a nice large TV, refrigerator, and balcony facing the pool and beach. The bathroom was the bomb... More

We spent 3 weeks in St Lucia and had a fabulous time. Our wedding planner, Nerissa Stephen, was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Nerissa was friendly, helpful and so organised. We had the most stress-free time and enjoyed every minute of our time in St Lucia. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful; the location, food, decorations - everything was perfect.... More

Just back to a cold and rainy UK after two weeks in St Lucia, one week of which was spent at The Royal, and wishing we'd stayed on the plane and headed straight back there!

This was the first time i had gone to St Lucia and i thought it was amazing especially the hotel because unlike other hotels this one is on the far end of the island meaning that instead of being isolated to one part of the island you got to have a look at some villages and beautiful views of the...

The Royal in St.Lucia was the perfect place for a family holiday in the sun.Ideally located inches from beach; our room was first-class- and the staff persistently attentive to all our needs. It was relatively quiet (not crowded) which suited us all. Giant bed for parents and plenty of room and space for two children ( 16 & 8). Food... More

We chose the Royal after having read all the five star reviews here on Tripadviser. What we were not expecting was just how quiet the place was. At breakfast there were maybe one or two other tables occupied, no matter what time we went down. Likewise in the evenings both restaurants were deserted so rather than eating on our own... More

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
