Excellent location for snorkeling. Very good beach and reef was close to reach and explore underwater world. Quite good service and nice stuff, delicious food. The island is quite big, but not so crowded due to the private beach villas serviced twice a day. Just had great time to relax and enjoy with my partner in crime. The only thing...

Sometimes we saw black stingrays or eagle-rays. The staff is fantastic, some names (but we will forget people -sorry): Saddam, Stalin (not kidding - they...

We went to this hotel to relax and we got it. The island was an ideal place for us: beautyful beach with white sand, wonderful coral and various underwater world (fishes, sharks, mantras and so on), excellent service and food, and, of course, perfect weather.

The Royal Island was very nice, but the rooms are dated. The beds did not get changed every day, for a 5* I'd expect better especially after it would rain and the rooms would have ants etc coming in and into your bed. I did ask the young man that was looking after my room if I can have the...

Excellent location, a fantastic beach. Wonderful wildlife in the water. The bungalow right on the beach. Delicious food, great selection. Very helpful front desk. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Impeccable cleanliness. What I liked: the open bathroom! All in all really enjoyed ourselves. definitely go back! It was indeed a royal serving section!

We were in the hotel for our honeymoon and everything was excellent. The beaches and the water were clear, we even saw fish passage. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. We were there during the wet season but fortunately the rain was occasionally and it didn't interrupt our vacation.
