Hotel and Staff are great. Unfortunately stayed in RM 809 and the bathroom was the smallest I have ever had in any hotel. The toilet and the shower were for children not adults. Not sure if its all the entire 09 line of rooms but avoid those if possible. Overall nice hotel with Starbucks and great views. good location.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
On the good side, they let me check in early. On the negative side...there was a lot. The stated Water view was sorta visible, but mostly blocked. Rooms were small, restaurant, bar, and room service were all closed. In seven days, my room was never cleaned, trash was never removed, recieved no towels or soap. Had to go out and purchase my own shampoo. Overall I was greatly disappointed.

Had a wonderful stay at the Royal Sonesta for a mini family reunion. The staff was exceptional from Afrim and Majol at the front desk to the cleaning staff that helpfully offered linens as needed (as COVID restrictions still in effect) to Alejandro who quickly and efficiently repaired an issue in the bathroom. The rooms were lovely- beautiful view, comfortable beds and great a/c (as stayed during a mini heatwave). Hotel was very clean and lots of lounge areas for my family to meet and celebrate without disturbing other guests. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning.
