It was the best resort we have been to, we usually stay at the Ri u Palace type hotels, but his was way better. We like to walk on the beach not necessarily swim in the water, because we are pool people. But love the rooms here and the fact that you do not have to make reservations for dinner. It is also so central you can just walk out of the hotel and into town. The rooms at this hotel are the best yet and the room service was great. If you go Royal you can go on the website and pick your room out ahead of time which is wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about this place so if you have any questions fire away.
