Positive Reviews

Grace Bay Beach location

The Royal West Indies enjoys an enviable position directly on Grace Bay Beach; think pristine white sand and crystal clear waters and you're most of the way there. Guests have only good things to say about the surrounding restaurants and shops nearby, and the resort is just a short walk into town.

Happy Hour at the bar

Happy hour at the Pelican Bar actually lasts for two, and guests and locals alike flock for two-for-one drinks at these times. The atmosphere is lively, yet relaxed, and most find it a great place to socialise. The rum punch comes highly recommended.

Quieter than other options

Being a smaller resort at the North end of the bay, the hotel offers a little more peace and quiet than the larger hotels at the opposite end. As a result too, the beach is far less crowded, and there is no shortage of loungers and parasols.

Negative Reviews

A little understaffed

Some guests have found that staff can be abrupt at times. While most are friendly, some further customer service training would not go amiss. Guests, in general, chalk this up to them being understaffed.

Slower pace of service

The island does enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and, as a result, the speed of service is of a slower pace than some might expect. Items requested can take a while to appear, and reminders may be necessary.

Rooms vary

Each suite is privately owned and is decorated individually. While most appear to be of a similar standard, décor and furnishings may well vary.
