We were at the Palm Royale from 4th June to 18th June 2013. The last time we visited in November 2012, the hotel was full, but this time occupancy seemed much lower. This was an advantage as the buffet restaurant was not nearly so busy. I had emailed ahead requesting a room in the same location as last time and... More

Stayed for 2 weeks at Soma Bay, Palm Royale, went there especially for the kite surfing. Nice hotel; good rooms (only beds a bit hard; ask for bedtopper!), super fitness, nice tennis courts and super nice health center/ wellness (sauna, steam bath etc; free of charge when you book all in). Staff: some good, others over-friendly (fake-friendly) in order to... More

I have just returned from holiday in Egypt at the Palm Royale in Soma bay. The hotel is very much in a developing area with long and winding road to reach the complex and mountains in the back ground. On arrival, the lobby was everything we were expecting, it was opulent and very much had the five star feeling about... More

Simply stunning. Rooms, staff, food all fantastic. If you have any problem just tell them and they will do their best so sort it out for you. We went to all the restaurants but the best was the Greek. Only comment would be that there should be more dishes in the all inclusive. I would expect to pay extra for... More

Palm Royale is not as great as the info online. Pools look lovely but in February they are not heated - freezing! Food is really poor in the buffet. A la carte restaurants are good. Relaxing place for family with activites for everyone. Animation team keeps you busy and fit, if you want to.

2 weeks at this magnificent hotel - Bliss. Every aspect of this "palace" is 5 * +. The hotel staff are welcoming on arrival and continue up until leaving. We have visited many 5* hotels throughout the world but the Palm Royale exceeded all our expectations. The management of the hotel is excellent, visible at all times and fully approachable... More

We had a wonderful family holiday, the weather was glorious, the staff friendly, the food good and varied, the hotel and beach were very clean. We all had a very relaxing holiday and are looking forward to going back again in 2014.
