“Amazing hotel. Great location. Snorkeling is amazing right by the rocks on the beach. Some of the best I have ever seen.” – David P. 1/19
“Place was nice, kids enjoyed the kiddies pool. The sports bar fish and chips was great. All staff was courteous and pleasant. Room was clean and the mini bar was well stocked beer, soda and water.” – Anthony P. 11/18
“The trip was a long and winding journey not much to see along the way until you entered the strip. It was well worth the drive, winding roads, scenic view and locals all around. The property has a lot to explore. For kids, the water park is a magical journey. The cartoon characters are also a delight. Not to mention the food offerings i think it is the Diamond Club Grill after a long drive those sandwiches and taste delights will energize you to take on the day ahead. The beach what can I say true white sand. LOVELY. After all that excitement, we had lunch at the main Buffet all those options to choose from. Each person had a favorite I liked the grill stations and the Chinese option. To top it all off was delicious flavored Ice cream who says not to ice cream on a hot summer day. The kids had it running down their faces. YUM YUM.” – Stacy D. 7/17
“Just returned from a week stay at the Royalton Negril. It is approximately 90 minutes from Montego Bay Airport. Best to set up travel arrangements before you arrive at the airport. The resort is beautiful and nicely landscaped. There are minor cosmetic issues that need fixing but you won’t notice unless you are looking for it. As some of the other reviews stated, we did lose power 3 times while there but very brief. We paid for the Diamond Club membership which for us was great. The bartenders at the diamond club bars were wonderful. I would recommend a swim out suite if that is feasible but all the rooms are nice and have great views. I will say if you are looking for a more relaxing atmosphere the Diamond Club area is where you want to be. The area near the kids splash park can get pretty crazy and loud. Not bad but not our style. The beach is excellent. They clean it every morning the grounds are well maintained. There is great snorkeling and other inclusive activities at the resort. we would definitely return to this resort.” – Dexter J. 7/17
