    God awful, spend a nice time & $ Eating at bar/restaurant. Only to find the Sandman has deposited buckets of sand at the foot of the bed. This tells me two things, housekeeping did not change his sheets, and I’m sleeping on somebody else’s dirty sheets. Call front desk- zero f’s given…, but what else, (island time housekeeping behold)? Pro tip - check the full bed upon checking in for sand. Lazy & lack of management- squandered goodwill and otherwise totally negative review of a poor housekeeping experience. Hope you fix yourself Sonesta. Book with caution.

    Amazing 🤩

    The service is wonderful. The views are spectacular. Everyone here is so nice. I highly suggest upgrading to “Club Level” for all the extra perks like free buffet breakfast and cocktails every night. The pool and hot tub are great with towels provided. The rooms are very nice and beds are comfortable. The food from the restaurant is amazing.

    If you’re looking to visit Paradise, look no further then Royal Sonesta, Puerto Rico!

    This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. The Beach is Carolina Beach located in Isla verde. It’s an amazing beach and so much fun. The pool at this resort is one of the best of all times! The service and the location at Royal Sonesta in PR are amazing! I want to send a huge thank you to the front desk manager, Aimee! She made our stay/vacation exceptional all the way around. We had such a blast in paradise w/ you all.. Thank you!

    Beautiful hotel and everyone was super friendly and helpful, especially our room attendant, Hilton. He went above and beyond making sure our rooms were taken care of. The beach restaurant was delicious and would definitely recommend this hotel to friends!
