How to Get There
We were looking for a reasonably quiet all inclusive resort. Quiet is a good description for this resort there were few people here. The staff were quite friendly, special mention for Kasha who went out of her way to provide excellent service. The room was good, food ranged from Ok to great. The property could use at least one more dining venue. The dinner at Chic was great. Issues included a wedding reception in part of the main dining room that had extremely loud music. I had one issue with undercooked steak (asked for well done and got rare).
Although we would recommend the resort, it would not be our first choice for a return visit.
First time in St.Lucia and I can honestly say the rooms were a beautiful surprise. Very spacy with a living room sitting area. We had the all inclusive package and the food was always tasty and beautifully prepared. All Staff are incredible! Very friendly and a lot of fun. Daniela, Troy and Tracey are only but a few to mention here whom we made friends with during our stay. We did test the spa for a massage which was incredible! Again a wonderful surprise. This beautiful resort is gem in Rodney bay for those who want to relax and recharge. I would agree that having some Caribbean music at the bar would be so much more fun while having some drinks as another review commented.
Thank you so much Royal St. LUCIA for making my first experience here such a memorable one.
A definite place to for any first timers!
I came to the Royal St Lucia Resort and Spa with my mum and my dad for a week. It was perfect.
The weather was 30 degrees upwards each day. So much to do here but I just stayed by the pool and on the beach.
The deluxe suite I had was amazing. It was 10 out of 10.
The bar, pool, beach was amazing. Loved it here.
A suggestion i have is to change the menu occasionally and also offer an ‘All inclusive’ option when choosing to stay here.
Will definitely come back one day. I’d definitely recommend staying here. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.
Thank you for making my caribbean holiday experience 5***** stars :-)
My wife and I just got back from a great one week visit at the Royal St. Lucia Resort. It was our first visit to St Lucia and we were on the Air Canada all inclusive package. Overall we had a great stay. There were some definite opportunities but the strengths of the resort were exceptional.
The resort is very nice. Beautiful grounds on a beautiful beach. Our welcome by Greta was perfect. The rooms are very spacious and well laid out. There is a big living area, a large sleeping area with a king size bed and a fantastic, renovated bathroom. And a big balcony with a great view! Our room was very clean and the cleaning staff kept it this way throughout our stay.
As others have said the people that work at this resort are amazing. They aim to please. They are friendly and go out of their way to make your visit special. Special kudos to server Daniela and bartenders Michel and Kevin. There were others I should call out as well but I don't recall there names. All staff were great. The only person who wasn't friendly was the pool attendant who was indifferent at best and not very helpful. He seemed out of place here.
We spent most of our time on the beach. It's a beautiful beach and is exactly 1.1 km from end to end. A nice walk we did many times throughout the day. The pool is also beautiful with a great pool bar but the beach was our favourite.
The food at every meal was exceptional. I've stayed at about 30 AIs and this was consistently the best food ever. Breakfast is a buffet where food is replenished often as needed. Everything is fresh. Lunch options are a sit down meal a la carte at the same restaurant, casual meals (burgers, fish and chips, roti, etc) at the beach hut or order off a beach menu to eat at the pool or beach. We ate at the beach hut most days but again, all food was fantastic. Dinner was a sit down meal at the restaurant. The menu was the same each night other than a couple unique options that changed nightly. Great, great, great! There is also a high end fine dining restaurant on the resort called Chic. As part of the AI we got to eat here once during our stay. Food was great and sommelier Mark made sure we had a great experience. There are also a lot of restaurants within a short walking distance if you want to venture off the resort.
The resort was very quiet while we were there. There were no issues getting good beach or pool chairs at any time. Wifi was very good throughout the resort including the beach. There is a nice bar open each evening staffed with great bartenders. This a quiet resort especially in the evening. It suited our needs perfectly but if you want a big party resort this place isn't for you.
The ride from the airport is a long one - 90 minutes for us but can be longer depending on traffic. It is a very scenic trip through the forests and over the mountains. It is very hilly and winding. It is safe and the roads are actually in good condition but if you get motion sickness take a gravol before making that trek.
There is a gym on site but it's pretty bad. The equipment is old other than the 2 treadmills which are ok. The weight area is actually dangerous if more than one person is working out as it's so small and awkwardly shaped. If you don't work out while away then no problem.
There is a bar fridge in the room stocked with a couple of beers and a few pops. Once you drink them you have to pay to have them restocked. I've never experienced that before as part of an all inclusive. It's an annoyance and I'm not sure why they do it as you can simply get as many drinks as you want from the bar and bring them back to your room. Silly. Also regarding the alcohol - as part of the AI you don't have access to premium brands. I would suggest giving people the option of paying a few extra bucks to have premium brands included in the AI package.
Part of the charm of the beach is the locals that frequent it. The St Lucians are very friendly and gregarious people. There are a lot of vendors on the beach. The vast majority are very respectful and will leave you alone if you say you're not interested. The odd one though can be loud and annoying. The hotel employs security guards on the beach but they do absolutely nothing other than just stand there. Not once did they ask a vendor to move on when they should have. Also, there are signs everywhere that the Beach chairs and palapas are for hotel guests only. On many occasions though non guests took up shop under the palapas. Again, the guards never did anything about this. This wasn't a big deal while we were there because it was so quiet but I'd worry if we were there during a busier period. Guests shouldn't have to tell the guards to ask someone to leave.
Overall the pluses of this resort far outweighed the opportunities. I rated it 5 stars and I would go back again in a heart beat!
The ROYAL is a beautiful property,well kept and lush. Gardeners and pool staff keep everything looking fantastic.Workers are all friendly and polite.Our room was always kept in great condition,thx ladies! Nigel was a good bar tender, Kira and Daniela were always polite,professional and cheerful and very helpful. They are a fantastic addition to your staff! We were there for our 45th anniversary. We had a great time and would return again.The food was great and dining staff were 1st class. Lovely beach and view of the ocean and lots of chairs for everyone. Personally I would like a little more ambience ( Caribbean music at the bars) just to be in holiday mood, I realize everyone doesn,t care for music,maybe just at happy hour! All in all we enjoyed our vacation.Thanks everyone. Dave and Judy Thomson April 2018
