Reviewed 1 February 2013

We recently returned from our third visit in 2012 to Lush Royale. It is the friendly boutique feeling that keeps us coming back time and again. If you are looking for a spotless tropical oasis where the management really cares then you have found the place, Lush Royale. Thank you Jeff, Andrew, and Leo for another wonderful trip. We are planning our next visit for the near future.

This was a surprise trip for my birthday and our first trip to Fort Lauderdale. First, our plane was about an hour late getting in and we called ahead and spoke with Andrew. He wanted to stay late and make sure we arrived okay (nice touch). Once we arrived- he showed around the hotel prosperity. It has a very private, secluded, tropic feel to it. The hotel is about 2 blocks from the public beach and in a mostly gay neighborhood. You cannot get onto the prosperity without having a key to the gate. The suite was awesome!! Beautifully decorated in palm trees and artsy photography and this hotel was VERY clean! We found fresh flower buds throughout our suite on a shelf or a nightstand (really enhances that tropical feel) and they replaced them daily. The bathroom had a rain shower (which was wonderful). Andrew also told us where the gay beach was a gay friendly areas to go- even told us what we would spend in cab fare to travel there. We had never been to a clothing optional resort before and wasn't sure what to expect. Most seemed to go with trunks on and some go without. It’s done with class.

Apparently, through a friend who wanted to send a card and a bottle of wine upon our arrival had contacted the hotel prior and asked for assistance and also shared that it was my birthday. Not only did they help her with making that happen, but the hotel staff also left me a birthday card along with a small bottle of champagne AND gave us a room upgrade!

Robert or Leo would make the room up in the mornings. Very friendly and would tell you this or that would be going on in the city and that you should go here or there for is or that. To a couple that had never been to Fort Lauderdale before, it was very much appreciated! The hotel also has a continental breakfast in the morning and a poolside happy hour from 2pm-4pm and the drinks are free. They also offered cool towels with a eucalyptus scent to them- which felt great after a day by the pool or at the beach. Andrew learns you quickly and will carry conversation easily and you feel like he is an old friend.

Unfortunately, our flight home required that we checkout around 5:30am and Andrew offered to have some of the breakfast items sent up to our suite the night before so we could have something before we left. A couple days later after arriving home- we received the nicest e-mail from Jeff the hotel Manager apologizing for not getting to meet us personally and asking if our stay at the hotel was good and could we offer any feedback on our stay and that he hoped we would visit again.

I travel quite a bit for my work and as a couple we travel quite a bit for leisure and I can honestly say it is extremely rare to receive this type of one-on-one service for at the value price you receive at Hotel Lush Royale. Class, style, sophistication, personalized service with comfortable amenities. I couldn’t come up with a bad thing to say about this hotel or the staff. They truly have the combined WOW Factors that most hotels and resorts lack. This is a great place for a couples get-a-way or for fun single weekend. We will defiantly be repeat customers!

Wow indeed! What a wonderful review guys. It is always a pleasure to help our guests celebrate a special occasion.

When your dear friend called to see if we could assist her with a special something to have in the room for your birthday, we were more than happy to run with it! (By the way, I truly enjoyed chatting with her)

We as a team do our best to be sure our guests have a wonderful time at our resort, and I believe we succeeded with you.

Please do come again, when you can stay longer! We will welcome you each and everytime, eager to make your stay a memorable one!

From the moment you arrive at the Lush Royale, you are impressed with the gracious staff, Jeff, Andrew, Leo & Robert. You immediately are assured that every effort to accommodate any need that you might have is their agenda. The entire complex is immaculate, well-maintained, and designed for the comfort of its guests. The guest rooms are comfortable, attractive, and spacious. A poolside hot tub makes for a wonderful relaxation venue that you can enjoy au-natural and unfettered day or night.

Rooms include a large closet, more-than-adequate drawer and shelf space for your personal belongings, a desk for your laptop, a convenient ironing board and iron to get out travel wrinkles, and a wall-mounted hair dryer that isn’t kiddy-size. The bath is stocked with ample soaps, mouthwash, towels and personal items such as Q-Tips, cotton swabs, band-aids and room fresheners. Posh bathrobes are provided for every guest. The complimentary breakfast room provides daily fresh orange juice or pineapple juice, yogurt, Danish, bagels and muffins and freshly-brewed coffee and tea. A bowl of fresh fruit is restocked daily as well.

Best of all is the gracious “can-do” attitude of your hosts who seem to truly relish making guests feel like Royalty. Nothing could be more indicative of their dedication to your enjoyment than by bringing complimentary piña colada (or other refreshing concoction) and a cold eucalyptus towel to cool you in the warm afternoon sun. The staff’s apparent work ethic on behalf of guest comfort and there sincere kindness and thoughtfulness that Jeff, Andrew, Leo and Robert exude, creates an ambiance worthy of the meaning of lush in the name Lush Royale.

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool and even the sma,lest is comfortable for two. If you need a place to cook a...

This is one of the nicer small inns that I have stayed in. The service is friendly and attentive, and the grounds and rooms are beautifully maintained. Many nice touches -- free drinks poolside in the afternoon, the kitchen is open all day with tea/coffee, a candy jar, and fruit. Small, with a pool and hot tub in a lovely garden setting.

I had never been to a clothing optional resort before and wasn't sure what to expect. During my visit, some guests went into the pool naked, but many wore trunks. It was very low-key and I felt comfortable.

From the minute you walk into the Hotel Lush Royale, you know this is the place you want to be. The inside grounds are exceptional and lush. Jeff and Andrew are the consummate management team. They try to anticipate your needs before you even know you have any. The pool and the hot tub are well maintained and are a great place to rendezvous especially at night.
I guess it is the little extras they provide that make me come back again and again. The palm trees imprinted in the sand, the breakfast choices provided to you as a guest, the late afternoon drinks by the pool, or the monkeys either hanging from the trees almost hidden from view or in a print in your room.
If you want to be pampered in a great hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, the Hotel Lush Royale is your destination.

For our first visit to Fort Lauderdale, I'm glad that my partner and I decided to stay at the Hotel Lush Royale. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed, given a tour, and then told that we'd been upgraded to a larger room that what we'd originally booked (so far, so good!). Our room, and the rest of the spaces in the guest house were all very clean. Every employee we interacted with was extremely friendly. There is a pool-side happy hour every day at 2pm. If we wanted something non-alcoholic, all we had to do was ask and they were happy to accommodate with a coke or whatever else we wanted. While not the best I've ever had, the continental breakfast had plenty of choices - from yogurt, to fruit, to cereal or pastries. There was also plenty of coffee. One thing we didn't love - the beds (there were 2 in our room) were a little hard.

The atmosphere of the guest house is extremely laid back. The guests while we were there were all relaxed and friendly. It was just a 2-block walk to the beach, which we went to several times. Parking was fine (we never had a problem getting a spot). Hotel Lush Royale is small and private enough to make us feel like we were in a secluded oasis. If you're looking for a quiet weekend away, you could do much worse than this spot.

I had never been to Fort Lauderdale before but had heard a great deal about it from friends who vacation there! It was everything I had hoped for due, in very large part, to my stay at the Lush Royale. My first impression, even though I arrived late at night, was that I had arrived at a place that was most welcoming; palm trees, beautiful pool and hot tub and a great room. The rooms are very well appointed, immaculately clean, decorated beautifully with orchids and all the amenities in abundance. Jeff, Andrew, Robert and Leo were incredible! In spite of the fact that they were always busy they made time to stop and chat and made one feel ever welcome! Of course the afternoon cocktails and iced towels with eucalyptus oil didn't hurt either. One would be hard pressed to find any faults whatsoever with the ambiance, staff, service, even the breakfasts at the Lush Royale. I wholeheartedly recommend it for a relaxing, pleasurable, affordable vacation. Alan C.

We thank you for your outstanding review. We would have to agree with you that even at night it is very welcoming as you enter into our property.

I must say I was surprised that this was your first visit to Fort Lauderdale. It is a wonderful winter, (or anytime) destination to enjoy our beautiful tropical weather, excellent restaurants, and gay night life if you so desire.

Please know that your charm and sense of humor was so enjoyable for all of us. We definitely look forward to your return. Thank you again for all your kind compliments while you were here as well as in your review!

We hope to see you again some time soon!!
