Had a very nice time, very quiet and relaxing. Some rules that seem a little over the top, but I think it is because they care. Not a bad place to stay while you are in Phoenix, friendly and close to downtown.

An excellent resort with very nice landscaping, pool and jaccuzzi. The very gentle owners invest a lot of time to maintain and keep this resort in very good shape. VERY nice appartments, no breakfast, no other facilities than the ones mentioned. Daily passes available.

I was very pleased to arrive here. The manager was very helpful and friendly. The other guests were nice and fun to hang out with. I will absolutely stay here again when I am back in Phoenix. A wonderful gay oasis. The hot tub has an amazing waterfall like feature that gives a great massage. Very clean and well appointed... More

This is my only place to stay while I stay in Phoenix. The owners always accommodate my late arrivals. They keep the grounds clean and I always meet nice guests. Location is quiet and the outdoor view can't be beat. I had a change in plans and they accommodated my late reservations request. I can't wait to return to the... More

The Royal Villa continues to be one of the best values in gay resorts. The location is great and it's very easy to get to anywhere in central Phoenix. The rooms are comfortable, attractive, immaculate, and have full kitchens. The grounds are very nicely landscaped. The owners have gone to great lengths to improve the property over the years. For...

Thank you so much for your kind review. Regarding the pool, we have a heat pump on the pool. It is not like a gas heater that blasts hot water into the pool. Rather, it takes a couple of days to start up the warmth and depending on the outside temperature, it sometimes feels a bit chilly. We do always... More

Returned to the Royal Villa after a stay in 2012. Happy to report that it was as enjoyable as the first time . The rooms have been spruced-up and are as clean and comfortable as ever. Doug was his usual friendly and helpful Host. No doubt will return next time in Phoenix.

I found the Royal Villa completely by chance while looking for hotels. I will definitely be going back. The room was pleasant, the bed was very comfortable, and it was QUIET! :-) I really enjoyed spending some time by the pool and soaking in the hot tub. Doug is also a most gracious host, very friendly, and gave me some... More

Having stayed at the Royal Villa last year while attending Phoenix Pride there was no question where I would land this year. This time I drove the 1350 miles to be there. Finding it was easy; head east off Interstate 17 on Indian School Road to 12th Street, turn left (north), go about 500 yards and there it is on... More

I recently spent a wonderful, relaxing time at Arizona Royal Villa Resort. Host Doug was very pleasant, friendly, and easy-going. I was visiting Phoenix for the first time to celebrate a friend's wedding and Doug was extremely helpful in answering all my questions about the area. Great restaurants and bars were close by. My room was clean and comfortable. Loved... More

I stayed there for a week starting 2-16-14. Doug was great, he worked his tail off everyday as his partner was out of town for a few days. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and have plans to stay there again. I stayed in room #5, which was a very nice comfortable room. I cannot say enough about Doug's hospitality, as... More
