My husband and I stayed here Feb 6-8, 2016...what a fantastic location (1 block from the beach), beautiful and extremely clean grounds and rooms, spectacular service (thanks to Matthew especially for your excellent customer service) and best of all, gay friendly without being pretentious and/or uncomfortable...loved it...we will be back!

Our recent first time visit was great. We chose this resort over our 'regular' resort and were pleasantly surprised. Both gay and straight clientele were a nice mix. Excellent front desk service from Mathew made us feel right at home immediately. Nice room, bathroom lighting could've been better, friendly staff and delicious poolside food menu were a plus.

The Royal Palms is a great location from which to explore the beaches and area of Fort Lauderdale. Only one block to the beach, and good restaurants and bars all within a short walk. And we loved the '50s architecture of North Beach Village, which offers many similar hotels. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable of area restaurants, clubs,... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Royal Plams numerous times closer to it re-opening. I recently stayed for 3 days on business and the place has gone completely down hill. The rooms are DIRTY, the shag rugs smell like old wet gym socks the staff was surly and they are now charging $10.00 for parking per day. Also,... More

We had to get a room quickly and these guys hot us into a suite. Ask for the newest annex building, a former apartment complex. The suite was clean, although the sofa was not comfortable. The location of this hotel and the staff are always very good. The parking charge, while very minor is an irritant. There is major construction... More

This hotel has a very 1980's beach feel. We stayed in a room on the third floor (one of the two available) and had a little view of the ocean over the active construction across the street from the hotel. There was a chlorine smell when we first entered the room and we had a little difficulty figuring out how... More

We stayed here before the fall season of activity. The staff were friendly and the bartender hospitable rooms are stark but comfortable very gay friendly. We felt at home. There was only one or two other rooms occupied during our stay, but this is a very popular hotel during season

After reading such good reviews, we were disappointed with this hotel. Facilities were minimal and we didn't even have water glasses or a hairdryer in the room. On enquiry, we were told the hairdryers were "on order so unavailable" and only rooms with kitchens got glasses. The air conditioner was noisy and not set to the thermostat. Disappointing.
