I checked in late and the front desk was very fast and pleasant. He took me to my room an d made sure the key worked and that everything was ok. You just do not get that service in a large hotel. Then property is very nice and is the Floridian oasis I had dreamed it would be. The room... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Royal Palms in Fort Lauderdale for our birthday trip over Mother's Day weekend. We had stayed in Miami two nights before and booked a room at the Royal Palms because another couple of friends were in staying there too. The atmosphere is super fun, warm, and welcoming! If you are a straight couple,... More

This was my sixth stay at the RP. Yes, it's no longer exclusively gay, but there were certainly plenty of gay guests there. Brian and Juan were hospitable at the bar. Brian made sure everyone was having a good time. So much so, that I enjoyed hanging at the bar more than going off to Wilton Manors. The room was... More

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

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
