We had a wonderful time and was much needed!
The beaches are the most pristine and the best we have ever experienced in the world! The facility was just right and quiet for us.
Jeff thoroughly enjoyed his diving adventures and was very impressed with the dive crew & services they provided.
We definitely plan to re-visit in the future!

Our stay at Royal West Indies Resort was great. It is a no nonsense resort, not too big with amazing grounds. It is a very quiet resort even though it is family friendly. The rooms are clean and you have everything you need to make you feel conformable. The convenience of having bikes at your disposal makes it easy to go to a nearby grocery market. There are many wonderful restaurants nearby.
Royal West Indies resort was excellent! The people there were friendly and helpful. All of them new our names at the restaurant and bar. When we returned from the liveaboard trip, the hotel sent a bottle of champagne to our room with a note –thank you for coming back.
Nice enough rooms and beach. Do not pay for ocean view not much of a view. Plenty of beach/pool towels and can get extra for diving the next day! Free use of kayaks, paddle boards, and hobie cat sail boats for 45 min at a time! Two pools kinda chilly but ok. Nice BIG hot tub! Restaurant is ok but expensive. Easy walk into town at Grace Bay. The taxi from the airport to Grace Bay and around Grace Bay was very expensive. I recommend a rental car from the airport. Most of the restaurants outside the resort was very expensive and out of our price range. We did manage to find a couple of places with reasonable prices, Mr. Grouper, Mango Cafe, Bagaloos, Las Brisas to name a few. Dive Provo was excellent. Shop is in Grace Bay so walk able but they pick you up from hotel! Takes time to get on bus, drive to dock, then 1 hour to dive so 1st dive around 10am and not back until 2-3pm! Long days. Lots of turtles, sharks, lobster, nice wall!
Our stay at the Royal West Indies was great. Though the rooms seem a bit dated in their decor, the overall appearance of the resort is immaculate and lush. The food was gourmet quality every night, and the staff friendly and professional. We used Dive Provo, and the female dive masters, in particular, were helpful in both assisting novice divers with their experience and in pointing out interesting creatures beneath the water. The visibility on the earlier dives was below standard, but people who'd visited before assured us that this was not the norm. The remaining dives were spectacular, with lots of reef sharks, porcupine fish, and HUGE coral. The water was colder than expected - I wound up wearing a rash guard, a 5 ml suit, and a hood to keep warm. Our plans to return to Provo and use the same facilities testifies to the overall quality of both the service and the diving. The only detractor is the cost of just about everything - food and taxis were very expensive.
