My Mom and I stayed at the Royal Palms for 2 nights, one night at the beginning of our trip to AZ and one night at the end of our trip. We wished we had stayed longer! This property is absolutely beautiful! The outdoor areas are meticulously maintained, and are so peaceful. This property is about 15 - 20 minutes... More

Our stay was too short for our first visit to Royal Palms and will return here if ever back in Phoenix. The resort has a rustic Tuscan/Southwest theme throughout with an abundance of trees and plants beautifying the grounds. There are meandering paths leading to various areas with interesting nooks and crannies. The rooms are well appointed and a fair... More

As a local I frequent hotels every year for "staycations" and this property did not disappoint! It would be 5 star with better vegan/vegetarian options. I can't wait to go back, ideally for a romantic stay! My mom and I have stayed at 5 star huge resorts and never gotten this kind of friendly, helpful service. It was extraordinary and... More

Stayed 2 nights. Excellent, friendly service (no tipping policy- tips included in resort fee) Beautiful grounds. Did not eat at restaurant or bar but they were very busy Nice fitness room. Pool is a bit small and pool patio is a bit tight. Wifi was a bit spotty. Overall a nice place for a short stay

Stayed in a "designer casita" #109. Lovely room with super comfy bed and pillows. Front open patio with sitting area, back private patio with no view. Bathtub is a little small. Love the decor throughout the resort. Many places to get lost in love. Cute little nooks with water features throughout. Great room service. Stellar breakfast at T Cooks. Delicious... More

I recently had a staycation at the Royal Palms, which I try to do annually. It's always a great experience. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The staff is amazing...they seem to always remember my name and my preferences. What's more, the staff's efficiency seems effortless...they are just naturally pleasant and capable. While I'm sure people could find fault,... More

A lovely hotel in a great location full of welcoming helpful staff. The hotel is well designed for the heat of summer with plenty of shade and courtyards that funnel the breeze and the grounds are impeccably manicured. The hotel staff are without exception delightful. The bar was nice and the live entertainment on friday night enjoyable. Breakfast at T.... More

Great staff, calm surroundings, amazing design and connection with environment... Lovely beach and good food. Location is great, near Scottsdale that is the place to be in Phoenix, and is close to the desert.

This was our first time experiencing Royal Palms. Our first impression and entire stay was perfection. This is a perfect place for a romantic getaway and did not disappoint. The location was terrific, situated just between the Biltmore Center and Fashion Square…very convenient! The Bar “Mix Up” was perfect for a casual dinner for two. The bellmen/valet were attentive and... More
