    Royalty Barra Stay

    The Hotel is in a Nice quiet area, the Beach does not get very crowded, the Balcony Ocean Views are great. The Hotel does not have in room coffee makers, They do not have in room nor do they have Ironing Boards and Irons. There are a lot of local food places one short walking block away.

    Sempre me hospedo no Royalty pelo custo benefício e localização. Quarto sempre muito limpo e atendimento excelente. O que me faz voltar é a cordialidade dos funcionários, em especial o Pedro. Na última vez tive um problema no estorno do valor de caução feito no check in e que já se passaram 15 dias e não me deram retorno. Acredito que será resolvido em breve. No mais, recomendo.
