Our stay at Royal Palms Resort, 717 Breakers Av. Fort Lauderdale during the month of February This hotel was a total disappointment. WiFi didn’t reach our room and we asked to change it and they let us know it was impossible even if we noticed other rooms were not occupied. Because of my job in Spain, I needed a solid... More

Didn't know what to expect after seeing other reviews, however, a friend recommended that had just stayed here a couple of weeks prior. I actually enjoyed it. I didn't mind it was all gay. Who cares it's not all gay men anymore. Me and husband (both gay by the way, lol) had a great time and spent most of the... More

I stayed at The Royal Palms for 6 days for a pleasurable getaway in April 2015. It was my first time in Fort Lauderdale and I would like to share my DELIGHTFUL experience. From the moment I arrived I got the most welcoming greeting from the team and made me feel like home. The check-in was easy and quick, the... More

Two friends and I booked this hotel because it was reasonably priced and near the beach. We didn't realize it was a primarily gay hotel. That being said, we couldn't have been happier with our stay. We arrived before check-in and were able to leave our bags and hang out by the pool until check in. The staff are some... More

Nice place and close to the beach. The staff was super friendly. Didn'tget a chance to try the food, but heard good things about it. They have a great party on Sundays. Looking forward to going back next year.

After I returned from a morning jog... More

Bentrely, We were sad to read your review. We take the safety of our guests very seriously and never provide extra keys unless it's requested. We would not have done so had you not requested that your friend get an extra key. We do apologize for this unfortunate incident. Take care, NBV More

We came to stay at Royal Palms during Tortuga music festival and it was a great choice. One block from the beach, friendly staff, great parking, spacious room (we had 2 bicycles in our room and still had plenty of space), nice pool and bar, quiet and just great ambiance. Will definitely stay here again.
