can be slow, and reception is weak in some rooms
On-site restaurant only average
Beach towels not provided
The best thing about the lower-middle-range, 150-room Royal Atlantic Beach Resorts is the location of its main building, which is directly on the beachfront and within walking distance of Montauk town center. Guest rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the beautiful 1.61 mile-long sandy beach. Rooms, which have kitchenettes and balconies, are spread over three motel-style buildings (only one is on the beach). But decor is dated and overdue for an update, and guests have complained about cleanliness. Travelers might want to also consider Driftwood on the Ocean, a comparable property offering cottage-style rooms and more amenities, such as a fitness center and sports facilities, a communal lounge, and a laundry room.
Motel-style beach property popular with families and couples
The Royal Atlantic Beach Resort is made up of three motel-style two-story buildings with porches running along the length of their facades. Decor is reminiscent of '70s-style motels and looks as if it hasn't been updated in decades. The reception area has a fishing theme, with large images of boats. Life buoys decorate the walls, and public areas have a cheery yellow-and-blue color scheme. Apart from the restaurant and pool areas, there aren't many spaces where guests can gather and mingle. The resort attracts leisure travelers seeking a budget beach vacation, and is especially popular with families and couples.
on the oceanfront, a 10-minute walk from Montauk town center
The main building of the Royal Atlantic Beach Resorts is located on the oceanfront, while the resort's two other buildings are a block away. There are other hotels in the immediate vicinity and a few beachside restaurants, but Montauk's town center, with its shops, restaurants, and bars, is a 15-minute walk away. The Montauk Point Lighthouse Museum is a 10-minute drive from the resort, and the Montauk Downs State Park is a six-minute drive away. There are two other nearby state parks: Camp Hero State Park is a nine-minute drive from the hotel, while Hither Hills State Park is a 15-minute drive. The nearest airport is Long Island MacArthur Airport, a 90-minute drive. New York City is a two- to three-hour drive.
Kitchenettes, seating areas, and balconies in all rooms, but issues with odors and soundproofing
The 150 guest rooms at Royal Atlantic Beach Resorts are decorated in the same bright-blue and yellow tones as the public areas, and have a beach-house style. Ceilings are low, but rooms are spacious, and all have seating areas, kitchenettes with microwaves, refrigerators, coffeemakers, and two-burner stoves, and balconies, some of which face the ocean. The main building's ground-floor rooms have direct beach access. Bathrooms are cramped but have large walk-in showers. All rooms include flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, but many guests have complained about the poor connection. Guests have also complained about inadequate soundproofing between the rooms, lack of cleanliness, and musty and cigarette-smoke odors.
Two outdoor pools, free
breakfast, on-site restaurant, and game room
The main attraction of the Royal Atlantic Beach Resorts is the beach itself, a lovely, unspoiled stretch of sand facing aqua waters. But the resort doesn't provide loungers, umbrellas, or even towels. There are also two large heated outdoor pools, one with patio furniture, the other with loungers and sun umbrellas. Breakfast is included in the room rate, but guests rate it as mediocre. The on-site restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, which also gets lukewarm reviews from guests. Other features include a game room with table tennis and arcade games, and a picnic and barbecue area. On-site parking is free. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, but the connection can be weak.
