Garden View Junior Suite
The Garden View Junior Suite is the cheapest room type at the hotel, offering one king bed or two queen beds and sleeping up to four adults in the resort area of the complex. These rooms have the exclusive DreamBed™, air conditioning, satellite TV, free WiFi and either a balcony or terrace.
Providing the same level of comfort and enjoyment, the Ocean View Junior Suites are a lovely little upgrade if you enjoy spending time on your balcony, taking in the views of the ocean with a good book or cocktail in hand.
The best way to book holidays at the Royalton is booking a flight inclusive package with an ATOL protected tour operator or travel agent. Brands like British Airways Holidays, TUI, First Choice and Expedia offer financial protection through the ABTA and ATOL schemes. They can also have some fantastic discounted deals when booking your flight and hotel together. Keep an eye for regular sales and discount codes too which can help bring the cost of your holiday down, especially if you're booking a group or family.
Most packages you'll find will be all inclusive, often including airport transfers in-destination and luggage too, when booking directly with the airline's tour operator. If booking via an online travel agent, you may need to add on these extras during the booking process. Extras such as day trips and excursions can often be booked in advance online at a discount through brands like Viator, however, the hotel concierge can also help you book actvities once you arrive.
Make sure to check the latest travel advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office before you book and travel. Destination travel restrictions can change frequently and book comprehensive travel insurance too.
The kids club is a fantastic place for children to spend their days while you can enjoy some grown up time by the pool.
