Royalton chic was absolutely stunning, let’s start off with the absolutely amazing staff at this fine resort, the staff truly knows how to go above and beyond and do it always with a smile. My now fiancé proposed to me at this resort by doing a candlelit dinner at sunset on the beach, which was absolutely breathtaking, the night would not have gone as smooth if it wasn’t for our absolutely incredible waitress oneckia, the staff truly out did themselves for our proposal. To end off the trip we spent time at royal spa which was another 5 star experience. This trip was truly an amazing experience and one week of paradise, royalton chic we will be back Read less

This resort exceeded my expectations. Booking this resort while it was still under construction was nerve wrecking. However, when I got there I was So happy that I did not cancel my trip. The resort is so beautiful, breath taking to say the least! The front desk and checking in area is so beautiful. The food in the restaurants were very good, the staff are so friendly and helpful in the restaurants. onieka from hunter, and unique from italian was our waitress and they paid so much attention to us and made our dining experience great. The manager Chrystal was also very caring and helpful, she always checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our meals. If you haven't book this resort as yet, please do so NOW.

About our anniversary experience. We decided to check out the new Royalton Chic (Formerly Halcyon). Fast forward, end of story (review), we have absolutely no regrets. From arrival, to being ushered to our room, to dining at the restaurants, to passing every staff who greeted you like they know you from 20 years ago. It was an absolutely amazing experience. The food was great, the atmosphere lovely, the newly renovated rooms were well laid out and comfortable. We talked about this experience after and came to the conclusion that this was by far the best local hotel experience we've had. This is now our go to local destination. Full disclosure, there are still some teething problems, as would be expected from a new resort. But they were working feverishly to get them sorted. I think this location will be one of the hot ones for the future. Kudos to Makeba, Aja, Siesha, Vanness, Nekita, Juanita & Ayanna. You all made us feel special. We will be back soon. Read less

This was my first time at a Royalton and I expected more from the brand. I was aware this was a new resort, but I don't think Royalton was ready to open. The cons were ongoing construction, especially right downstairs from my room, as I almost fell on my butt one day, the lack of poolside service, the availability of dining options (wait time was up to two hours for a meal) and LACK OF CULTURE!! The nightly band? What was that about? I would have preferred the Vibe Team from 9-11. The best part of my stay was the Vibe Team! Kalique, Nadia, Kiana, Rishawn, Timothy, Keithroy and Kareem were absolutely amazing!!! I would consider going back just for them. Vaness at front desk was a sweetheart. Water aerobics with Daniel and the other trainer was great! Some staff moved around but Annika, Andrea, Lasheka, Unique, Cleon, Isean, Tamara, Jaime and Cathy, all helpful and a pleasure to meet during my stay. I'm absolutely sure things will get better in time; however I wish Royalton had been transparent with me from the beginning when I reached out. I would have booked a different week. Read less
