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...

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

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

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.

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
