Checked in at the hotel, left our luggage and went out again. When it was time to go to bed, I struggled with the fitted sheets that never fit the bed! It was very annoying to deal with it. Middle of the night, we noticed that the mattress was very bad. It was pushing us in the middle of the... More

Booked this property based on location and the pitch as a boutique hotel. Checked in on Thursday 1/15 at 4:00 and were told our room wasn't ready yet. It went downhill from there. We had to pay entire bill up front. Room was never cleaned or remade each day. They simply emptied trash cans. The bar of soap that three... More

We are nearing the end of our 2 week stay at the Royal Palms, and it has been truly excellent. The entire staff is friendly and professional, but two of them stood out. Lenny checked us in the first night, and although it was well past midnight, he found the perfect room for us. Lenny also followed up with us... More

My now ex-boyfriend booked the hotel without looking it up to know it was a "gay" hotel. After our cruise we arrived to check in at 9am and I was pleasantly surprised by the cute pool but noticed the artwork leaned very male gay. We were told the room wouldn't be ready and sat by the pool. It was Sunday... More

This establishment is a great option if you are looking for a gay hotel on FL beach. Overall, the property is efficiently managed and offers clean rooms, a fun bar, nice pools and foremost, great staff. Brian and his team are most pleasant, always helpful and super accommodating. 10 minute walk to the gay beach at Sebastian street and a... More

I have stayed at the Royal Palms approximately 10 times during the past 3 years. Most recently, I stayed here between December 30th through January 4th. What used to be a male gay only hotel has turned into a gay-friendly hotel. If this new policy remains in effect, I may decide to go to a gay only resort the next... More

After making the move to Fort Lauderdale from Los Angeles a few years ago, I had not had the occasion to stop by and enjoy the poolside bar at the Royal Palms and Spa at their Sunday Funday party, so it was nice to drop in and just lay around and relax for the afternoon. The poolside party was a... More

Was very surprised upon arrival that The Royal Palms is no longer a gay resort. We've been coming to this resort for approximately 10 years and this trip will be our last! Was very surprised that Philip is NO LONGER working there either (which should have been the first clue). The pride flag is gone from the entrance as the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights before a cruise. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - I see a number of reviews saying "not what it used to be", but I didn't get the impression it was run-down or showing signs of age. Two wonderful heated pools (was a bit chilly temps the first few days, so this was most welcome). Great... More

As a frequent visitor to this property I can certainly say this placed has slipped badly both in maintenance and cleanliness. Employee's that are there do their best in hiding disappointment but long time travelers can see right through them. A year ago, our room had a broken bed frame and it ruined our stay. We had mentioned this to... More
