Royal Palms Resort & Spa
Ranked #60 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The Royal Palms is a short walk to the beach! I enjoyed the "boutique" feel of this property and the front desk team and bartender are super friendly and ready to please. The rooms are thoughtfully appointed and comfortable. Overall a terrific experience from the time of booking the room to my departure.

elliott1260713,
Thank you so much for your kind review. Isn't it lovely to walk outside our doors and be steps away from the beautiful beaches of Fort Lauderdale! From the moment you walk in until your departure, we truly want our guest to feel like royalty! We can't wait till your next visit. Remember, were only a phone call away! Come back and take advantage of our summer special! See you soon!

We visited over Memorial Day weekend and it was great. We were able to check in late and the rooms have a great modern feel to them. The staff are all helpful and friendly. We had a great time this go-round and will definitely be back! Thank you Philip and team for a great stay!

I stayed in the Robindale Suites side, it was very peaceful. Clean, updated rooms, friendly staff, close to everything. Got a great price considering it was a last minute booking and a holiday weekend!!! I will be booking again for July 4th weekend!!!

Room Tip: Robindale Suites/South side seems to be a little more laidback.

Henry R,
Thank you so much for choosing the Royal Palms during your pre-cruise visit here in Fort Lauderdale. We are so delighted to know you had such a wonderful time. As you mentioned, being in the heart of North Beach Village we are centrally located to everything in town including the beach, downtown and Wilton Manors. We are sadden to hear you missed our famous Sunday T-dance. However, we know next time you will be there to join us! See you soon Henry and thank you once again for spending your vacation with us!

This was my first stay at the resort. I was completely impressed by the customer service and courtesy of the staff; notably Phillip Lafond, General Manager, and Brian Fausett, Assistant Manager. The good at the restaurant is very good and fresh, and Jeremy the bartender was a pleasure to deal with, even during the chaos of the Sunday t-dance. This place is a gem that my friends and I will definitely be returning to.

Room Tip: The rooms by the back pool are very quiet. We stayed on the third floor and it was relatively quiet...

This was the perfect choice. From the moment you walk thru the inviting front door till the time you check out, the whole experience was 2nd to none. The Staff, the room. and the grounds are simply beautiful. Although I do live in Ft.lauderdale, I needed a day and nite away, and staying here I felt like I was a thousand miles away. Totally relaxing. The property is by far the cleanest I have ever experienced. Not a hair on the floor!! Recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for an upscale stay without the upscale price.

Room Tip: If you want complete quiet , ask for the building in the back..has its own pool!

What a relaxing/fun time, and a great place to stay. I've grown to love this place. I've now stayed here maybe a total of about 8 times (pre and post cruises--and just long weekend get-aways) I've had a lot of friends stay here, and most of us, keep going back. I've read some of the concerns/complaints with some reviews, and from my most recent stay (yesterday--and two weeks prior),...Management has listened, and resolved these issues. New Mattresses,(memory foam-ish)...very nice. I've noticed in some reviews, people's concerns with straight people, or it not being all gay--this doesn't bother me at all,...in fact, I like the mix (but this is a personal preference of course),..I've never felt uncomfortable, or felt like I couldn't be myself around anyone there. Because even on the web site, it states an " hetero-friendly luxury gay male resort" During my stay this past weekend, I noticed just a few encounters with a straight couple who came over from the hotel beside us, to get a drink, and quickly went back to the hotel next door. I did not get to stay for the t-dance on Sunday, but understand now, it's every Sunday, instead of once a month. The Management and Staff, could not be better. They were always present, no mix-up with the bill, and came by many times, asking if we needed anything, let us check out amazingly late at no extra cost. Jeremy at the bar was sooo friendly and made you feel like he was a good friend. All the bartenders are nice there. I would recommend this resort to anyone. Location, Staff, Management, and price, all on point!

Room Tip: Stayed in the room over the bar,...no noise, even late at night could be heard. Spacious and a good...

Michael C,
Wow 8 times staying with us !!! Micheal we are so honored and thankful to have you join us and make the Royal Palms your home away from home. We couldn't be happier to know your experiences continue to get better each and every time. You are 100% correct, we have listened and made the changes to further grow the Royal Palms as the leader in gay accommodations. Our entire staff truly goes above and beyond to ensure our guests have a wonderful stay. Our Sunday T-dance is a big hit, and hope that next time you will get to enjoy it! But whether it's just laying back, taking a dip in the pool, working out in our gym, having a drink with our friendly bar staff, having a bite to eat in our cafe, or relaxing in the Spa while getting a deep tissue massage, we genuinely care and we will always take special care of our guest. Thank you Michael, we can't wait till your next vacation with us!
