Impeccable service, gorgeous property, fresh and outstanding cuisine, simply amazing spa, and perfectly relaxing pool. Ideal for couples getswsy or girls' weekend. The rooms are gorgeous and I highly recommend the Alvadors Spa Suite. Go between April and October for perfect weather.

I stayed here for a small business meeting. Everything about the property is wonderful. The staff is very helpful and they make sure you are comfortable at all times. The rooms are spacious as are the meeting rooms. T Cooks is a fantastic restaurant as well. I'm glad I got a chance to stay here and experience Royal Palms!

The buildings and grounds are stunning. Private, romantic and relaxing. Unfortunately the service is hit or miss. Didn't feel like their employees are passionate about the role they play in creating a memorable experience.

Two words: intimate and relaxing. Royal Palms is a beautiful smaller property where you feel like everything is set up just for you. Staff members are very attentive and friendly, and there are several partially secluded spots outside with fire pits, a fireplace or fountains where you can sit on cushioned seats with a drink or a book, away from...

I stay at the Royal Palm every year in December, and the combination of beauty, comfort, service and food is hard to beat. They do an exceptional job training staff, as they are all tremendously helpful, knowledgeable and go out of their way to make my stay as good as possible. Casitas are particularly nice. Highly recommend TCooks, the restaurant,... More

Very nice property. I was attending a conference at one of the Marriotts and no rooms were available. This property was close by. It is very pretty and clean. Fitness center is tiny but rooms are lovely. Make sure you ask to be away from the housekeeping and ice machines. Staff is wonderful. Especially the valet staff. Extremely helpful with... More

This little boutique of a hotel is the perfect place to get away from it all. Every room has its own charms, the property has lots of nooks and crannies to hang out with friends or curl up with a good book, and the restaurant offers amazing food and drink. The staff make you feel right at home and you... More

Our real estate agent recommended this hotel to us. It is right off a pretty busy, unscenic road, which had me worried. However, once you turn into the drive you are in a special, quiet and beautiful hotel! The common areas are delightful and charming; the architecture is wonderful. We were in the main building, which but for the way... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and each time just gets better. I went to the gift store and bought the book on the hotel and how it came about. It is a designated Historical site. It feels like Olde World Spain. It is quiet and lush and tranquil and fragrant and just lovely. One of my... More

I gave the property an "average" rating because that is what it has become--a personality-less, convention feeling, could be anywhere place. We have come here for years and always loved the ambience. Our room was stripped of all charm and softness (and a peek at the book in the room published some years back reminded us how pretty the room... More
