Absolutely wonderful! We have been going to St. Lucia for the last 20 years and each year we stay at the Royal. Our stay this time was certainly one of the most memorable as we enjoyed each of our 9 days and 8 nights. We love the Caribbean so we travel twice a year to two Islands staying always at...

This is my 2nd trip to St Lucia. I spent a week in the Coco Palm and a week at the Jalousie Plantation (now Sugar Beach) in Dec 2007 and chose this hotel because we had a dinner there at the time and liked it very much. It is not the most luxurious hotel in St Lucia. There are some...

This is a lovely hotel and the refurbished rooms, which were needed, are great. The staff, location and whole experience is very nice indeed. There is, however, one major failing and that is the temperature of the pool. It is freezing! Because of this the majority of guests seem to favour the beach which is a pity because the pool...

I stayed at the St. Lucian a few years back so this was my second visit and I am pleased to say, the rooms are even better. The St. Lucian is located in the north of the island and is on the beach with the Rodney Bay Marina behind you. The property is "U" shaped with all suites facing the...

Having just returned from one of many visits to The Royal we can certainly say that our stay was one of the best. After suffering a period of decline after its original splendour, the hotel has now been almost completely refurbished with new bathrooms and bedroom furniture which are superb. The beach front suites have enormous private balconies with magnificent...

This hotel is fantastic for relaxing and getting away for a while. It's found in Gros Islet, in the very north of the Island. If you are flying in from Europe/America then it is a LONG drive from the airport in the far south, about 1 hour 45 mins. Some take a helicopter up which is a nice alternative. Once...

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
