Loyal to the Royal!
Posted Jul 23, 2017
The Royal is amazing.....it is hard to put into words the way this lovely place can excel in each category...staggering beauty, quality of food, activities, comfort, variety and of course the most outstanding aspect that sets this place apart is the staff! Until we experienced the Royal we did not understand how the quality of the staff could make such a difference in one's overall experience. You have to be there to really get it. Jose Garcia and his wait staff at Spice are beyond description - wonderful!!! The chef there is amazing. Example of attention to detail - we were there 6 days and each day, in addition to every possible fruit (tropical to of course) being available at peak of flavor each day, they cut the fruit differently each day so it is novel and new. We loved the quiet pool, the large pool, the ocean. It was hard to leave where we were to go someplace new on the grounds since we were so enamored where we were. The ceviche and paella served for lunch at the large pool was best I have ever had. Actually every meal was that way. The drinks are crazy good...we loved Red Tide, Funky Monkey, Mudslide (just to name a few) and of course the mojitos...they do not make them this good in Texas. Maria Marie was a spectacular dinner....get reservations! Diego the manager, Pastor the chef and our waiter Leonardo go out of their way to make it memorable and beyond perfect. Even our housekeeper deserves commendation.
