We stayed here for several days over the Xmas break and can't wait to return. It is a hidden gem off Camelback Road and as soon as you drive in you know that you are in paradise. The valet people are awaiting your arrival and each one over the week were all friendly and welcoming and professional. The check in... More

The hotel has an extravagant yet homey atmosphere. As you wander around the property, there is almost always a quaint surprise waiting around the corner such as a fountain, water feature, a bench, a couch (!), beautiful flowers, fruit-filled trees, and much more. The employees were all friendly and would go out of their way to help in any way.... More

My husband and I stayed here over New Year's to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We both have wanted to stay here for quite some time and we are so glad that we did. As soon as we drove into the slightly hidden main drive, we felt like we were transported out of Phoenix and into some secret place. We... More

We have been guests at the Royal Palms since the 1990's. This was our first trip back in 12 years. The breathtaking desert landscape, the meandering walkways, and the cozy seating areas surrounding the outside fire pits are utterly alluring and tranquil. With Camelback Mt. as a backdrop and the hotel's plush aesthetics, guests are easily whisked away from busy... More

This resort has soul, a special atmosphere and is the perfect place to stay when visiting the area. On the border with Scottsdale, it is too easy to choose a nearby modern resort such as Princess (bland.....poor service...inferior food) or others which may be luxurious but do not have that certain something...which Royal Palms has in spades......on a good day....which...

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.
