The accommodations, food and management are stellar. I am in the "industry" and have been for 30 years. Nice work. It is clear that Phillip is in complete control and that guest satisfaction is paramount. I will go back for certain. Scott

I stayed here in late June for a 5 night vacation. The excellent service began when I booked by phone with Ryan. He gave me 20+ min of his time filling me in on the hotel amenities and orienting me on all the must-do's in FTL. He was able to accurately answer all of my questions and made me so... More

My boyfriend and I had a great time here over Labor Day weekend. The hotel is modern and looks like it's been renovated within the past ten years (or 5...). On the weekend they have a pool party in the afternoon which is attended by hotel guests and locals. It was a good time but also not too loud or... More

Even though we live in town, we rented a room for one night just to feel like we were getting away. The rooms and the whole place are clean, classy, and professionally run. Sunday T-dance was a blast, and the pork sandwich is freaking awesome. Reasonably priced all around. We do not hesitate to recommend Royal Palms for our out... More

The Royal Palms is a great gay destination hotel! I recently stayed and have to say that the property was extremely well-maintained and the staff went above and beyond my expectations. The managers, Philip and Brian, are truly dedicated to their guests' enjoyment. Other honorable mentions go to J.C., Ryan, Junior and Steve who always provided helpful information with a... More

Please know what you're getting, a great time with a staff more attractive than the guests, every day is not Sunday here but it certainly feels like it, particularly at a ridiculously low $99 a night. What you're not getting, phones in the room, transportation, working lights so careful before you paint yourself into that corner room. Food very good... More

Being from Mimai we stay 3-4 times each year and this was out first experience with a problem? Arrived late on Friday after a long day at the office and the air conditioner in the room was quite noisy. In the middle of the night it really began to become a problem. The next morning we approached the staff and... More

I have stayed at Royal Palms for years and years. It is nearly the only place I think of when I think of Fort Lauderdale. I stayed there this month from June 2 through June 9, 2014, and unfortunately, this is not going to be a good review at all. Let me start off by saying that I am critically... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What's so amazing about The Royal Palms Resort & Spa and why reviews are so overwhelmingly positive is that we're a truly unique boutique hotel - an all-welcoming, hetero-friendly, gay male resort! Nestled in the heart of Fort Lauderdale beach's breezy, seaside North Beach Village, Royal Palms is a sleek, revitalized 50-room, two-building resort. Our celebrated, round-the-clock concierge-like services will impress you along with our luxurious amenities, full-service day spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and our popular bar & grill that serves scrumptious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Whether you take a long swim in one of our two heated turquoise pools or just sunbathe in our sunny courtyards, you and your friends will relish Royal Palm's sensual, tropical atmosphere. And if you should ever desire to leave our luscious and intimate oasis you'll find we're nearby to everything fabulous! With just a 4-minute stroll to miles of world-class sandy beaches, watersports, restaurants, entertainment and nightlife - we make it all too easy to relax and laugh. We offer complimentary Wi-Fi, convenient parking onsite and supersized, gay smiles! Best of all - each ultraclean room has a modern European style with a sexy twist and beachy colors. Every room has a 42" flat screen TV, an I-pod Docking Station and are luxuriously appointed with the finest linens and comfy bath towels. All bathrooms feature tranquil rain-showers and natural pebble stone floors to massage your feet. We offer five room types and all are bigger than average - Supreme-King, Deluxe-King, Standard-King, Double-Queen and Mini-Queen. Book a Supreme-King today - at 368 square feet this supremely popular room is spacious, conveniently located near all the action and features a changing alcove. You'll also adore our Deluxe-King with 295 square feet to play around in - like kings on a gay holiday! Royal Palms Standard-King often gets booked up with 291 square feet and located in a more secluded setting. Naturally, our Double-Queen fills a lot of the needs bigger parties may require and at 287 square feet this private room is airy enough for some groovy dancing. If you'd like a room a bit cozier - be our guest and stay in our Mini-Queen which is anything but miniature at 220 square feet. The Royal Palms Resort & Spa. ... more   less
