I can’t begin to express how amazing our experience staying at royal blue hotel. The staff were so welcoming, polite, helpful and so accommodating. We had forgotten to take our adapters to charge our phones, the reception immediately offered us adapters without hesitation. The resort was very clean inside and out. I could go on and on but this getting to long already. I have recommended this resort to all my friend and family and hope to go back again soon!

The hotel has many hidden pools amongst the property, so whatever you are in the mood for-quiet or views you can find a place. It also has a private “beach”.
Beautiful sunsets!

Great resort with nice facilities
Beautiful resort with great facilities: multiple pools, shared spaces and private beach. Check-in was smooth and everyone was accommodating. Restaurant and bar staff could have been more attentive; some were clearly very new.

Amazing sea views and outdoor areas
Amazing outdoor areas - pool and private beach perfectly suited to swimming. Due to large outdoor areas - the grounds never seemed crowded even though the hotel was fully booked. Very attentive staff.

The hotel is laid out as a number of low-rise apartments which makes it look more like a small village than the large hotel that it is. The hotel is adjacent to the sea with the resultant superb views. It has everything you could want available on-site.
