I really liked this hotel because of the affordability, how well they maintained the pool, surrounding grounds, lobby and onsite restaurant. They also have very clean men and women restrooms in the lobby. Overall, the front desk staff was friendly, willing to assist with information about things to do daily, and always followed through with their promises with a warm smile. The onsite security made me feel really safe. I give them a 10, because of how they secure the property. You actually need a room key to access the hotel lobby, and security is always there in case you have a problem with access, etc. They are very friendly, warm and attentive people. The onsite restaurant is a plus because it provided that added convenience, and they make an awesome Tuna and yellow grits for breakfast and the cooked sardines and grits is off the charts. They have other things to, but, this was my favorite for breakfast. I switched up between the two daily. I was here for 2 weeks. Due to Covid, they didn't open for lunch or dinner until near the end of my stay, but, i'll catch them next time. The Restaurant staff was equally friendly, warm and accommodating. Because we tend not to see the chef, they miss out on tips, however, i made sure at the end of my stay to personally go see the chef and tipped her for reminding me what moms cooking is like away from home. lol. Room service was also friendly and also did a great job when you required service. location is close to public transportation, i rented a car for 2 weeks, a personal preference. As i was leaving, and it was hard to say good bye while i was truly thinking about extending my stay, i said i would give them all a 10 rating. i hope management will share this review with entire staff.

Royal Islander kind of 3 star hotel. Rooms nice comfortable with aircon but very basic. There was no running hot water. Courtyard is spacious with pool and seating. Wifi is quite good. Has restaurant and food was good. Staff is nice and friendly. Not much in the neighbourhood. Small mall and fast food within walking distance. Nice for short stay but don’t expect too much.

We visited the Royal Islander to do hurricane relief. The rooms are OK for sleeping and the pool was nice and the water was warm enough. The food in the restaurant was much better than I thought it would be. The people that work there are very nice. This is not located next to a beach and the internet service was scetchy at best.

Had few nights spent there, and the overall review is bad. At first, when entered the room, the strong smell of mold kicked me back outside. The room was not ventilated at all, the ambient temperature inside was equal or higher than the one outside! The aicon, fitted on the lower window was extremely noisy. The restaurantt is working for breakfast and dinner. For lunch-there is subcontractor. Another issue was that my room was entered by the personnel, despite that "do not disturb" was hanged on the door outside. And the last, major repair floor works on the terace, next to my room have been initiated, witout notification. Based on the above, I can't rate the mentioned hotel with more than one star.
