After looking at a bunch of properties, I selected the Royal West Indies for a six night getaway. Overall the property was very nice, well kept, and located in a prime location on Grace Bay Beach.
I booked an ocean view room and was upgraded for free to an amazing ocean front room. (Unit 135 has a perfect view of the beach and ocean). The suite had everything we needed, including a nicely stocked kitchen, comfortable bedroom and nice living area...not to mention a great balcony.
The resort grounds were beautiful and well maintained. They offered free bike usage and lots of free options down on the beach.
The restaurant and bar were very good! While a little pricey (like everything else on the island), you at least got great food and drinks for the money.
While the staff was friendly, this resort is not focused on pampering its guests. If you want that, I suggest finding somewhere else to stay. They pretty much leave you alone to do your own thing, as opposed to other resorts that take a more personalized concierge approach.
If you plan to take a warm shower, you must limit your combined shower time to about 10 minutes. The tiny water heaters in each unit are way too small to accommodate more than one shower within an hour period.
While the pools are decent, there are far too few chairs to accommodate the number of guests. You will spend lots of time searching for chairs during prime sun hours. Plus, if you want a towel, you need to leave the pool areas to get towels down by the beach and then walk back to the pools. Not a huge deal, but an inconvenience to say the least.
Lastly, like everything in Provo, the bar and restaurant close down very early. If you are looking for late night snacks or drinks, you will have to head into town to Jimmy's Dive Bar.
