The fourth day in , we had someone , go into our room , and steal our prescription glasses , our neighbours had there iPad , money and the bottle of champagne, taken while they were in the shower ! And we spoke to another guest they had their makeup and shoes taken ! We spoke to the staff , and the security, but they didn’t do anything about it ! Took us 4 days to find a manager! If you get a swim up room with a butler please be-careful! Read less

It was wonderful. Memorable and highly recommend. This would be a great idea for someone who has never travelled before. The friendly staff inviting atmosphere at the royal spa was breathtaking and out of this world from Namiah and Chantelle they made this a memorable experience and I would highly recommend them.

We have just returned from a super holiday at the Royalton. The staff work their socks off and we’re always super friendly and helpful. The coffee shop ladies were a personal favourite 🤩 The location and beach are amazing and all the activities super fun. The rooms and resort were clean and My kids and us had a great time. Some of the reviews on here are totally blown out of proportion this really is a lovely resort. We didn’t do diamond club and never felt second class if anything I think we had more fun. We never had to wait for a restaurant and always found sun beds and we went in the Easter holidays. Thank you for a lovely holiday I’m sure we will be back! Read less

Best week of my life may sound a bit dramatic, but it truly was. Mostly because we were married at the Royalton Antigua. We had a welcome party on the beach the night before our wedding, we were married on the Sky Terrace, and then had a beautiful reception on the beach. Our entire wedding experience was amazing. The wedding coordinator staff were so accommodating and truly created the wedding of my dreams. Michelle was our assigned coordinator and she was so kind and helpful and just all around an awesome person! Aside from our wedding experience, our vacation experience at the resort was also great. Food was delicious, staff were very kind. We occasionally had a staff member not overly friendly, and we had a couple meals that were a little slow, but far and away our good experiences outweighed the very few very minor less than good experiences we had. The resort and beach are beautiful. Onsite entertainment was great! We stayed a couple nights in a bungalow, it was beautiful but very expensive. If you don't plan to spend much time in them, maybe instead of spending money on the bungalow stay a few extra days at the resort in a regular room. 100% I would highly recommend this resort. And if you've never visited Antigua, it is a must! Most beautiful place I've ever been and the people are so kind and welcoming. I can't wait to go back! Read less

Firstly I want to praise the manager, Leroy Brown, and staff at the Royalton Hotel, everyone from the reception management team including Ishawna, the Guest Relations Manager, the staff in the coffee shop, buffet staff and the bell boys. They went above and beyond to help me and my sons when my husband was taken ill on the first day of the holiday. They helped us cope with a very stressful experience and were on hand to help us while my husband spent two weeks recovering in hospital. They helped me with taxis, extending stay, provided meals for me to take to my husband every day in hospital, even provided bedding and sent food and water to me while in Emergency. They really cared and made a point to meet with me everyday just to make sure I had every thing I needed. I just can't praise them enough. My husband made a full recovery and he felt reassured that his family were being well looked after. The hotel is in a beautiful location and close to the capital. The views from the Bay view rooms are beautiful and worth it. The rooms are very comfortable, bright and modern and extremely clean. The buffet service offers a good selection of food. I especially liked the stir fry counter and my sons loved the pizzas and the breakfast crepes and omelette counter. The steak restaurant and Italian restaurants were also excellent. My sons used the gym daily which was very well equipped. I would have liked full access to the spa, but hadn't realised that this and certain areas of the pool, beach and restaurant were reserved for Diamond Club. I hadn't noticed this when booking - probably my oversight so something to consider if you want to upgrade. My sons and I did a private half day trip of the island, once my husband was well, we booked this online at the last minute with Viator, as some of the tours advertised in the hotel were fully booked as we couldn't plan ahead. This trip was excellent. I have used Viator a number of times in different countries and have always been happy with my experience. Thank you Royalton Hotel for helping us enjoy our holiday. Read less
