The hotel is Very beautiful and extra clean. Rooms are luxurious and premises well kept. Pools are awesome and all staff are very friendly and helpful BUT for a luxurious hotel not to have its own restaurants and amneties is a big draw back! One feels that the hotel is not complete, it's only for sleep and nothing else. This was very very inconvenient to have to go to the other sonesta hotel for breakfast and/ or use of other restaurants, spa and massage rooms and practically everything. Also one has to cross the whole premises of "le royale" and " sonesta beach" to reach the sea, which is a good long walk!! I asked them if they have at least a carte ( golf car) for easy transfer between both hotels and to/ from the beach, but not only they said that they didn't have, they said that the landscape doesn't allow to have them ( which to me sounded illogical) since they can use either the backway between both hotels or the front passage. This point alone made us seriously reconsider booking in le royale again. If they take it into consideration and provide golf cars for easy transfer, the whole formula would change and not only we'll always come back, but will encourage our friends to do so.
Pros: We loved the setting of the pools and the swim up rooms. Plus it's extra clean.
Cons: Not to have its own restaurants ( at least for breakfast) and other amneties
Location: Perfect location!! Close to Naama bay , casino and shopping area.
