Nicely decorated hotel in the middle of the "action". The hotel is best situated to explore all South Beach has to offer including night life. The hotel has a nice pool and access to the beach. The rooms are nicely decorated. We had the ocean view room which had a great view of the beach and the ocean. The food... More

Thanks so much for your review of the oceanfront Royal Palm South Beach Miami. Guests do appreciate our location as our resort is in very close proximity to Espanola Way, Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive. The combination of these three areas is the heartbeat of South Beach nightlife. The resort does have many breathtaking views from our guestrooms and suites.... More

I will definitely be coming back. I booked a room for 4 nights and couldn't have been happier with my experience. Great location, beachfront, and spacious rooms. Be advised valet parking is just over $40 a night. Also, the water in the 2 pools, which were small were very warm, but regardless we came for the beach!!!! Aside from the... More

I arrived August 10th on a check in for a local staycation from Delray Beach, FL. I am very familiar with OTHER neighboring and comparable 4-star properties in Miami Beach and South Beach. Hotels.com somehow rates this hotel a 4.5 out of 5 stars - THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY THIS HOTEL IS EVEN A 4-STAR HOTEL. 3.5 stars maximium,... More

The location to South beach is great! However, the hotel needs to improve its housekeeping staff and the cleanliness of their rooms. Touch up paint will go a long way. We had to ask for extra towels everyday and it took them hours to deliver them, one day we had to get them ourselves. There is also an extra resort... More

Best thing about this hotel is...its location. Next to 15th St where Ocean Drive ends, a block away from Española Way and two blocks away from Lincoln Rd Mall. Staff was friendly to us even though i've read not everyone has the same experience. Another good thing about the location is the ocean water and sand quality, it changes alot... More

I found the hotel on Groupon. The rates are reasonable. The check-in process takes forever, but once in the room it was nice and clean. Great view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. The cushions for the beach and lounge chairs were nasty. They really need to do a better jobs with them.

I came here with my girlfriends and we had the two bedroom apartment. I loved it! Two bathrooms, endless closet space, plus the living area was very hip and fun for pre-gaming and modeling outfits. This was great for a girls trip. Access to bikes, ipad, and fitness rooms. The pool/hot tub area was nice, especially at night. Great location... More

As a corporate and executive meeting/event planner and international traveler, I have been and remain perplexed and annoyed at the inefficiency and lack of communication and trust in the reservation process with this hotel.

Not at all up to par. Thin walls, lots of noise/riff-raff, mold, unmaintanied and run down. Just NO. Run away. We ended up checking out of the hotel after one night and moving to Eden Roc... we were just one group of many who did so.
