Almost 17 years have passed since we last visited this resort. The property had not been open long back then, and I questioned whether it could still be as idyllic as I remembered it to be.
The quick answer is yes. What an incredible property. It is meticulously maintained, including the beautiful grounds, pool areas, and buildings themselves.
In terms of the layout, Building 1 is truly oceanfront, with Building 2 being one back from the water, but you are still charged oceanfront rates. Buildings 3 and 4 face the pool and bar/restaurant, which may not be the best choice for those who want quieter surroundings. Building 5 is is the middle of the property, after which Buildings 6, 7, and 8 are towards the back and face the quiet pool. It is definitely quieter there, and the rates are better in these buildings as well.
Housekeeping does an outstanding job. The room was absolutely spotless and all housekeepers were cheerful and friendly.
The restaurant, Pelican Bay, was decent but we ate there only once and found a number of better alternatives off-property. As is Pelican Bay, the bar is adjacent to the main pool and has a steady crowd, day and night.
The beach area fronting the property is generally regarded to be on one of the best stretches of Grace Bay. It is absolutely spectacular, with sugary white sand and turquoise water that has to be seen to be believed. The friendly beach attendants will have your beach loungers and umbrella ready early each morning.
In the hospitality business, the highest compliment you can pay a property is to return. Royal West Indies is every bit as wonderful as we remembered it to be, and we will never stay anywhere else when we return to TCI.
Great location, quiet with beautiful grounds!

Beautifully maintained smaller (intimate) resort on Grace Bay beach. The location is perfect! Loved their Pelican Bay restaurant, best cracked conch I had on the island! We would definitely go there again! Percet place for couples!! Only thing missing is a gym.
