We are a family of 4 with girls aged 7 & 11 and we have just had a fantastic holiday at Royal Dragon. So much has been said previously by other reviewers and we certainly agree with the positives.
In summary, the cleanliness is exceptional, the spacious duplex is the best family room that we have ever stayed in and the food at all restaurants is high standard. As far as negatives are concerned, the only thing that bugged us was Shakespeare's Sister singing 'Stay' on continuous loop in the restaurant. Bizarre. Seriously though, waiters warmed to us when we offered a few smiles and thank yous and the other guests were no different to other hotels that we've stayed in. We visited the evening show once or twice but it wasn't really for us.
Because of the hotel's seafront location, it was easy to spend the morning at the beach, with sumptuous lunch at the restaurant, and then an afternoon at the pool, with even more fresh food served at 2pm and 4pm. As several reviewers have pointed out though, the best poolside loungers are taken early in the day. We just took anything that was going. On most days, there were 2 or 3 beds around the vast pool with a brolly nearby. If you're struggling, then there's always the slide area. Speaking of which, this area was great for the kids as both the slides and the evening funfair picked them up a bit when they started to flag.
As far as days away from the hotel are concerned, we took a bus to Side a few times to bag a few bargains. The shops are plentiful and the market is on Saturday mornings if you like a good old haggle.
In our opinion, if you're a family with children between 5 and 15yrs and wishing to be pampered at a self contained good quality hotel, within easy reach of a quaint little historic town, then you will enjoy the Royal Dragon.
