We were return guests to the Rex this October but this time took our daughter and grand-daughter with us. The resort had been closed for a month and had just opened a week before we arrived. We have never felt so welcome - Chrystel on reception checked us in after a long journey from Edinburgh and even carried my hand...

I attended the Royal in October for the same conference as 'Cheapbutdemanding', whose review is below. His account is comprehensive enough for the two of us, so I will just add a couple of points and some photos! Aside from the excellent location on Rodney Bay beach the two areas in which the hotel excelled were the service and the...

Rodney Bay is an odd place out of season – the weather is warm, albeit a little muggy and rainy. The restaurants and bars are all open but there is hardly anybody about. The street that curves out round from the shopping mall out onto the spit of land on the seaward side of the marina, and home to any...

After not having a membership with The Royal a friend informed me of the changes that were been made, so i went to look for myself with a clouded judgement, what a surprise i got, the spa is so relaxing, candle light and flowers down the corridor to the wet rooms, iced cucumber and towels for your face and eyes,...

We stayed at the Royal St Lucia in Feb 2011. My husband had been there before and insisted on going back, particularly because of the staff. The hotel room was great, lovely touches such as flowers on the bed, beach towels changed regularly even midday if you used them in the morning. Unfortunately when we were there the weather was...

Had a great time here. The hotel is well located, it is right on the beach but also only a few minutes walk to some great resturants and bars so you have plenty of options in the evenings. All the staff were really nice and friendly. We only ate at the hotel in the evening once at a beach barbecue...

I have been to St Lucia 11 times, but this was my first visit to the Royal. All I can say is wow! The suites are amazing and spacious, very contemporary with a large walk in shower, lovely lounge with sofas and flat screen TV, and the petals on the bed were a nice touch! The staff are so friendly...

Thank you very much for your excellent review on Trip Adviser.

In our opinion, the hotel has two significant advantages over other hotels on the island. The first is location right on, arguably, the best beach in St Lucia and also within walking distance from a range of good quality restaurants and bars in the Rodney Bay area. The second is the staff, who are friendly, polite and competent, making special...

We have previously visited in 2007 and 08 and loved it so much we returned this year. The hotel is in an excellent location with an idyllic beach and views of Rodney Bay. All rooms have a sea view and we stayed in one of the newly refurbished suites. The bathroom was superb, with the best shower we've ever experienced,...

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
