Walking around the property and dining in the restaurants, it is clear the resort is not near 100% occupancy.

That is really unfortunate because it really is a beautiful resort.

What is unique about the Royal Hideaway is the way the units are stuctured. Two stories with only 16 rooms in each unit with a concierge, and a good one, to take care of your every need.

The rooms are spacious and as my wife stated, “The bathroom is as big as my kitchen”.

There are pools everywhere you look. And what I insist be at a property I visit if it is all inclusive, are lots of dining options.

Here the Azia restaurant serves Sushimi and Sushi to your heart’s content, in addition to the normal Tepanyakki should that be your desire.

The Italian restaurant was excellent and we will go back tonight to their signature restaurant.

Unlike many breakfast buffets, the one here overlooks the ocean and becomes a Meditteranean restaurant in the evening.

It is an adults only property, which could explain the lack of numbers. As a AAA 5 diamond property its standards are obviously very high.

What is also nice, the golf course is less than minutes from here…if that is your option.

The beach got eroded somewhat from the last hurricane but is being filled in now.

The people are very nice here and, as you should expect, always friendly.

The keep reinforcing your name so that by the 3rd day they really do know who you are.

Out of Canada, it is one of Transat Holidays premier properties in the area
