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

I really enjoyed this resort. The hotel is very clean inside the rooms and around the pool. The rooms are renovated with taste. I really enjoyed the jacuzzi day and night, it was fun to relax there. Also the hotel is not far from many gay venues in Phoenix. I don t have a clue what some reviewers said about... More

This is our 2nd stay here, the first being kinda newly opened. I see many improvements more of them surface, instead of real renovations, bath had old tub and just new fixtures stuck on them, shower head small, old and placed very low. Bed did not seem to have premium mattress just average, we stayed in a buddy room, as... More

In response to this review, we would like to share on some of the items addressed, namely; 1) "Ghetto rooms" We have no "one side of ghetto rooms". All the rooms are the same as each other. The property next door is a lower income, ethnic, long term rental complex with wonderful people who accept us just as we are.... More

Royal Villas is AWESOME! I stayed a week (in room #13) and had a great time. Doug – the owner – is really sweet and works very hard to insure that everyone has a good experience in a clean, safe environment. Three nights of my 7-night stay the hotel was completely full but it didn’t feel that way; there were... More

Really enjoyed this place. My main goal is to enjoy some warm weather in nude by the pool, and I accomplished just that. The place is clean, location is very good, close to many restaurants and bars, and not too far from the PHX airport. I've read some negative comments about this place, and I've been here couple times now... More

Not gonna lie, as I pulled up in front of the place it looked like a fortress of concrete block and I was a little apprehensive. One step inside the "fortress" alleviated all my fears. The courtyard was extremely inviting and I was immediately at ease. Doug welcomed me and, as I was checking in, he gave me a rundown... More

I've been going to this small 15 rooms and suites gay resort for several years. I always go in the summer. Hotter the better. Never fully occupied and seems to be more 40+ crowd. There is no restaurant or bar on property nor a work out facility. If you are looking for that, this is not the place. Owners Kenny... More

The main reason I picked the Royal Villa was of it's location; central Phoenix and near the Pride celebration and festival. I made a good decision. Right off I was impressed by the security. The entire Resort is surrounded by a high block wall and entry involves getting thru 2 steel gates, and only the paying visitor and one guest,... More
