Had an amazing time in San Pedro. Our casita at Royal Caribbean was beautiful spacious , bright, airy and super comfortable after a day of excursions. The ladies who take care of the casitas were phenomenal, friendly and made our stay wonderful. George at the front desk was amazing and provided excellent customer service before and during our stay. The pool is gorgeous and faces the sea offering a beautiful view while swimmming.The only issues we had were the poor customer service and behavior of one of the waiters at the onsite restaurant(the food was delicious though) and the sea wall which prevented direct access from the beach to the water. But all in all we loved our time in San Pedro and our stay at the Royal Carribean.
Upon arrival, the first thing I find out is that it will be $10 extra a night to get a key to make the A/C work. this key is attached to your room key forcing you to turn off the A/C when you leave the room. there is also a warning sign posted threatening additional charges if you separate the A/C key from the room key.The temperature is also set at 22 C. you can't change it. The owner went cheap on every aspect of the room decor and fixtures. The restroom fixtures were especially cheap and had the smallest, saddest little toilet I've ever seen that required 2 to 3 flushes to do its job. The owner also added a huge eyesore of a retaining wall which completely destroyed the beach and the view. There was such a cheap feel to everything at this hotel. The furniture in the sitting area is very uncomfortable and the TV is arranged so that you can't watch from the bed. I guess it saves the owner a buck or 2 if you don't watch TV at night. The restaurant was tasty, but extremely over priced just like everything else at the hotel. Out of the 6 times I ate there, they got my order correct twice. I also had the hotel do one load of clothes. It cost $13.50 US.... The only friendly people at the hotel were the maids and the male barkeep. Everyone else acted like you were bothering them if you asked for anything. Overall, I feel completely ripped off and disappointed with this hotel.
Delicious food! Wonderful service! Fun atmosphere! The owner said she took over in February 2017; she was very friendly! Quiet location out of town to eat dinner on the water. Run punch and shrimp kabobs were wonderful .
You really get the "Bang" for your buck. We had a fabulous 5-night stay. A very clean well kept cabana. Looks just like the photos. Excellent bed, bedding, and pillows. Awesome Air Conditioning! Even had a Kitchenette, Cable TV and free Wi-fi that worked no matter where we were on the grounds. Beautiful large and very clean swimming pool right on the beach. The grounds were lovely. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Bicycles and Golf Carts for rent at premises. Restaurants, Bars and diving shop right next door. We would definitely stay there again.
We chose this hotel because of the scuba school that we wanted to get certified at. That school has since moved into San Pedro for more walk in traffic. I would argue the best part about this hotel is that it is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. Great staff, clean rooms, hot showers, clean towels and linens. The cottages are quiet and quiet large. It was nice having a fridge and microwave. Definitely go to Robins if you stay here, it is just a short walk up the road. The one mistake we made was not taking a taxi from the ferry to the hotel. It is quite far from the ferry. You can rent bikes from the office and ride into San Pedro. If you want to experience the "spring break" type feel of San Pedro, you may want to stay further north. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this hotel.
The description is quite accurate. Simple cabana and in itself is pretty cozy inside although the bed was extremely uncomfortable and the AC made a horrendous noise during the night which made for very unrestful sleep. Office staff was rude when we arrived but was thorough with scheduling tours or calling taxis for a pickup. They overcharged us for the bike rental. We paid initially then they charged us upon checkout as well. Some of the appliances didn't work (water boiler, toaster). The wifi is HORRIBLE. The pool was quite nice though! A decent size and a bar right next door. Overall, the place was okay. Nothing special nor "royal".
Stayed 2 nights with my brother and sister. Very picturesque and awesome oceanfront beach view. Beautiful pool on the edge of the beach. Chalets had microwave and fridge, very clean. Would highly recommend staying here if on the island. Not too far by taxi to the ferry in San Pedro. Only setback was that no one was in the office the morning we wanted to organize a tour and rent golf carts. There was suppose to be someone there at 7am but by 7:30 still hadn't showed up so one of the other staff kindly helped us out.
there are so many things I can complain about for this resort. 1) As a resort, we expect the resort to have different tours and activities that can be reserved through them. There were many times my friends and I went into the hotel to get a tour reserved but the front desk NEVER reserved them. They wouldn't even call or let us know in any way 2) The day before our last day in Belize, we had some laundry to do and they told us we would have to come in at 7 a.m. to get it by that afternoon. So I came in at 7 to drop it off expecting it to be in my room by the afternoon. I came back to my hotel room by 9 p.m. to find out the laundry not in my room. The reception wasn't open so we had to go to someone else to pick up our laundry ONLY for the housekeeping to tell us they didn't get to our laundry because they stop working at 5 p.m. IF WE REQUEST SOMETHING BY A SPECIFIC TIME, IT SHOULD BE DONE. SO we got our laundry back all unfolded. In addition, they had messed up one of our sweaters - The next day we came in to be compensated for our laundry but the manager wasn't there and never replied to our calls. 3) The resort itself smells and the amenities need to be updated, we found mold on some things. The wi-fi SUCKS. 4) The resort does need lead to the beach like the pictures show, very misleading. 5) This resort has a lack of communication and customer service skills. Would never recommend this place to anyone.
We really enjoyed our time at Royal Caribbean. It was on the south side of town and it was away from the hustle and bustle. Which we loved. The room was clean, the AC was cold. The pool was great and you could sit and relax and enjoy the water from the pool. There was seawall damage being repaired but we were told upon check-in the beach was public and it was super easy to go next door and enjoy their seawall and water access and no one had any problems with it. The staff were helpful and kind. Answered our questions and helped us with calling for cabs etc. We ended up renting a golf cart to explore on our own and the cart we rented from there was fine. It got us from A to B. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back and stay here again. I liked being away from the town and the quiet atmosphere. It was perfect for a getaway with the hubby.
Overall I loved this resort and had a very relaxing stay. The grounds were really pretty and well cared for. The front desk and other staff on the grounds were extremely friendly. The pool was clean and both the beach and pool area always had available chairs. The restaurant/bar had great food/drinks/service and the servers were really friendly. The resort was also a short walk to diving. My only two comments would be that the kitchen area would be better if it had a small cook top. The rooms got a nice breeze and had fans, but I think in the summer would get quite warm without AC. It was fairly hot during the day when I was there and the room was as well. Fortunately I was there in Jan so after the sun went down it cooled off and the room did as well.
