Royal Beach Palace
Ranked #38 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 4 April 2014

First of all this hotel has chosen vary good pictures to promote this hotel - the pool and balconies is just by a very busy road.

To get to the beach is a long walk away and the staff is really not that friendly. We had troubles with our booking, by no fault of us, and the staff found it very very uncomfortable to arrange this. They did eventually but it took a long time.

The rooms were okay. Not bad but not great. They had access balconies to all rooms and they had no security to get in to. We had persons not from the hotel knocking on our door in the middle of the night.

Free parking is a plus.

Dear morsva

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I can assure you that all of the pictures on our website are indeed of our hotel and its rooms. I am sorry to read that you felt our staff was not friendly. Generally we get quite the opposite sentiment but I apologize non the less. Each one of our doors is fire proof and has a 2 inch dead bolt lock so I can assure your our hotel is very safe. We thank you for your feedback as we endeavor to improve the product and service we provide for our guests.

Clean room with decent beds, coffee making, fridge and flat screen tv. Good shower pressure and hot water. Complimentary wifi and parking. Pool Ok. Pool bar OK. Location not bad but a mile from main hustle and bustle. Old style air con a bit noisy.

Overall OK but nothing special!

Nice and clean, near main road but all average really. Bit far from centre of Ft L, but close to beach and restaurants. We booked 2 nights and wanted to stay a 3rd. We were asked to pay a higher rate for a 3rd night despite the hotel offering the room on expedia at a cheaper rate! Not happy, so we went to stay at the Hyatt on pier 66. Why do hotels try this con trick??

The room was incredibly clean! There wasn't a speck of dust on any of the furniture! We do a "bed & towel check" right after we check in to a room, and we didn't find one problem with any of the bed or bathroom linens. The bed was incredible comfortable, and it was awesome being right across the street from the beach. The pool was also very clean. The restaurant/tiki bar attached to the hotel had impeccable, friendly service and the food was delicious!

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, but the rooms on the top floor have ocean view (from across the street).

My friend and I stayed here for a few days during spring break. The newly renovated rooms are very clean. The rooms also come with microwave fridge iron and safe that came in handy. Staff are friendly and accommodating. The only downside is being far from downtown or the popular las olas. The taxis can become expensive.

Nice rooms, pool area nice. Good pool bar. Staff friendly. Very nice location just a short walk to beach shops just over road. Free shuttle bus on next block will take you down town to lively bars, but saying that bar at hotel very good and friendly well stocked. Would recommend this hotel enjoyed our stay.

I've never quite seen anything like it. This hotel looks totally sketchy and cheap from the outside, and the parking is horrible to boot. Nonetheless is parking lot was full of Teslas, Maybachs, Bugattis, you name it-if it was expensive it was there. So, despite the sketchiness from the outside, I knew we'd be okay. The inside of the rooms had been beautifully renonovated, and everything looked really clean (although it smelled really strongly of air freshener). I absolutely refused to eat at the restaurant. This was because the back door to to the kitchen that opened to the parking lot was constantly open, and I suspect this was some sort of violation of health code. Though I wouldn't stay again (not as upscale as I'd hoped), here's a summary of pluses and minuses:

Pluses
Close to a beach access point
Clean, newly renovated rooms
Reasonably friendly staff

Minuses
The exterior looks horrible
The hotel is in an older part of tow n
Parking was challenging
Not sure how sanitary the restaurant is

Room Tip: If you're there on business just stay at the Hilton. Going local is not always the best.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I was sorry to read that you had trouble parking. We do offer a main parking area and have an additional parking are for our guests. Our hotel is very popular and therefore we tend to fill up the main parking are fairly early.

Our kitchen door also has a screen door which allows us to keep the door open during periods in time when our restaurant is very busy.
