I was there a couple of weeks ago (I posted the review about girls trip with little kids).

I was disappointed in the beach. I wouldn't stay there again just for that reason. Yes, the hotel is lovely and very clean, but the beach was a let down.

It didn't ruin our trip in the least, but I think a fab beach would have just made it even better :)

Hi Lisa,

I don't know how often size of the beach changes there (or should I say how often beach disappears), but when we stayed at RPRM a couple of months ago, the beach was great. I mean it was there! There was a lower beach and an upper beach. The lower beach wasn't wide, but you could walk up and down it and there were few rows of sunbeds and it was very clean. The upper beach is huge and very nice, there are palm trees and hammacks and lots of sunbeds, but you'd have to go down stairs to the lower beach to get in the ocean.

I hope you make the right choice ;-)
