“Great timeshare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

A timeshare is never like living in your own home. However, after reading several of the previous reviews, I was very unsure of how the condo would look. When we arrived, Jacob and Raul were at the front desk. Both of the young men were very helpful. We were given keys to inspect units on the 6th and 14th floor after I expressed my concerns about the possible conditions of the condos. The two bedroom, two bath condo on the 6th floor was so nice we didn't bother to go to the 14th floor. Everything is newly painted, the furniture is new, and the drapes are airy and lovely! The bathrooms have also been newly tiled with a walk-in shower in the master bath. The refrigerator is new and a new glass-top range and microwave are to arrive this week. The grounds are also very nice. Due to the cool weather, the flowers are not blooming. It will be quite lovely when they do. It is only about 100 yards to the beach via a private access walkway. The view from the balcony is beautiful. It is a great place to sit and read, watch the waves!!! You will enjoy a stay at THE ROYALE. We plan on returning next springl

Me and my husband went for our third yr anniversary, and it was very nice. It was the last nice hotel that was available at a last minute decision and we were greatful that they had an
availability for our stay. So we are hopefully staying at this hotel this time for our fourth yr anniversary. Thank you

We stayed Christmas week with our family in a two bedroom, two bathroom unit on 9th floor. The unit has been newly painted and the master suite bathroom has a beautiful new tiled walk-in shower. The unit is spacious and allowed our family plenty of room. The beds/furniture were adequate for a week's vacation. The staff was very helpful and attentive to the care of the grounds etc. The location with beach access was great. The elevators were both in good working condition and made it pleasant to get up and down from the 9th floor. The heated pool and 3 hot tubs were super on our chilly days. The washer/dryer, CD player/stereo, DVD player and equipped kitchen in our unit were real pluses. The only reason I gave a 4 rating instead of a 5 was the poor condition of the dishwasher, and the refrigerator seemed to not be functioning 100%, and there was no fitness center. We would stay here again if an opportunity to visit SPI comes up.

Room Tip: The rooms are positioned to all have beach view and pool/ tennis courts view. We chose an upper floo...

The hotel is definitely outdated, and needs a facelift. We stayed in 2 adjacent hotel rooms. The view was fabulous, as the rooms were on the end of the 14th floor. Everything in our unit was clean, but the appliances were old (ex: dishwasher). The fridge didn't have an ice maker, so you had to either use the ice machine or do it the old fashioned way and use the ice trays. Unfortunately for us, both ice machines (on the 8th and 12th floor) were broken. Nothing that a trip to the HEB couldn't fix - and we got 2 bags of ice. One evening, we lost power for a couple of hours. This affected a few of the hotels/condos in the area. Luckily, the elevators still worked during the outage, and we were able to go to a restaurant. On Wed of our stay, the water was turned off from 9am - 2pm to fix a water pipeline issue. The sliding door in the second room would occasionally make an odd noise, and the sliding door in the living room doesn't lock properly. All in all, even with the inconveniences, we went to SPI for the beach. The hotel has easy access to the beach, and has a coded gate. Doing a daily walk on the beach was something I really enjoyed during our stay. Although I prefer white sandy beaches, SPI's tan beach was quite enjoyable. Parking was a non-issue. There was plenty of parking spaces, and the guard gave each car (2 total) its own parking sheet to display on the dashboard.

Poor organization from the staff. Only one parking pass allowed for the two bedroom suit, so when asked where we could park the second car, they told us by the guard shack. A $300 tow later, and nobody seemed to be responsible, because it was off their property. Lesson learned don't trust the staff.

Staying in the r9147 and it seemed clean but when we pulled the duvet covers back and opened the shower curtains we found otherwise. Blood stain on one of the full duvets, hairs in the king bed, mold on the other full duvet, filthy cabinets and showers. Lobby was dirty and had food all over the floor and it smelled like urine and old fish. Horrible description, I know. My husband I have maybe seen 2 other families who spoke english- sorry but this seemed more of a Texas tourism spot based on reviews and advertisement- but its NOT. This place is so crowded but I guess that is to be expected during the time of year.

Please, I read reviews like this and ignored them- save your money and stay somewhere else!!!

Do not go to the "royal beach and tennis club". Just left there spent a week enduring filthy disgusting beds. Mold on all the air vents. Mold on the kitchen sink. One burner on the stove working. Pull out sofa was gross. After 7 requests and the maid swearing at my husband we had to buy an air mattress for our son to sleep on. Floors were filthy. Tile in shower all cracked. Some kind of black goo running down the windows. We tried to get some kind of response from the front desk but never got anywhere. They are rude, unprofessional, and simply don't care. The entire place is run by people coming from Mexico to work. If you don't speak Spanish beware. They talk about everyone and curse at you if you complain. This place deserves no stars but it is not an option I will never go there again or recommend anyone to go there.
