My husband and I stayed for two nights this past weekend and were absolutely charmed by this property. Just off the main "drag" in Palm Springs but very secluded with beautiful flowering bushes and palm trees surrounding the gated property, the property is reminiscent of an Italian villa. The staff are very friendly and Nancy even left the front desk... More

This historic hotel property is so beautiful and peaceful, we could not have asked for anything more. The grounds are meticulously tended, even to the point that the gardener (Jack) hand-waters all the areas to save water and to make sure each area receives the proper amount. The desk staff( Joe and Jack) were super-friendly and did everything to make... More

My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights in June and loved some of Villa Royale's features but really disliked others. The pros: Amazingly lovely front office staff and excellent local area recommendations, a beautiful courtyard and restaurant with truly yummy food (for dinner), a dinner waitress who was probably the most accomplished we had during our whole...

Cute little garden areas with fountains and foliage. A very quaint European feel. Staff is so nice and laid back. Perfect place if you are with a close friend or your significant other. Very quiet-Hidden pools, very private. Villas are nice and cool from the desert heat. This is definitely Bali meets France tucked away in Palm Springs. Love love... More

So- we usually go to Desert Hot Springs but figured Palm Springs would be a fun change. After much thought we chose VR. We checked in and the room had dirty towels in the bathroom, full trash, three fortunately dead cockroaches and a queen, not king bed. We asked for pool towels and were told there was none. We also... More

Perfect little getaway for my girlfriend and I. The sink could have used some attention in our bathroom in 117 and for the price we paid a night I was hoping for a more comfortable bed. These are just minor complaints though compared to our overall experience. The service was excellent and my girlfriend and I were easily able to... More

One of the most charming properties we have ever experienced. The perfect size property to spend time together or with a small group of friends, and an excellent location that can have you in downtown Palm Springs in 5 minutes. We can't say enough about the staff - Joe and Jack were so warm, welcoming and helpful throughout our stay.... More

My husband and I found this place 15 years ago when we came to the Europa Restaurant for dinner. Upon leaving that evening we looked at the beautiful pool and grounds lit up in fairy lights and flickering candles and promised ourselves we'd be back to stay in the hotel one day. It took 15 years, but for my 50th... More

A small group met for the weekend at the Villa Royale. It was very quiet with a lovely swimming pool and tasty breakfast served in the morning in a nicely decorated dining room. The accomodations were clean and orderly. It did have a kitchen but it was poorly equipped.

This is a unique and beautiful property: an oasis after days spent in the surrounding desert. Our family of four stayed in one of the two bedroom units with a sitting room and kitchen. It was very comfortable, but would not suit everyone. The one bathroom was small and basic, which was fine for us, but nothing fancy. We asked... More
