“Mimicking the Sand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a Gorgeous Hotel. From the easy entrance to the car park, through the tropical garden, and into the reception area - this is a lovely retreat. Our room was large and had billowing curtains. Except for the bar/restaurant area, the hotel is painted in the palest of pinks and creams. Downtown Hamilton is an easy walk - and quiet safe. There are often festivals and music along the waterfront. If you don't feel up to walking, the Royal Palms has a comfortable garden where you could curl up with a book. We parked our car in the lot and rented a scooter for a week of discovery. Getting around on a scooter is just part of the experience. Lastly, the prices may seem steep, but the hotel has an outstanding restaurant.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask if there is construction going on near the room. It won't necessarily be IN the...

Dear MarcB13,

Thank you for your lovely review. I'm glad you took advantage of our close proximity to Hamilton enjoying the easy 10 minute stroll into the city. While enjoying our gardens you can also stay connected with our Wi-Fi which is complimentary throughout the hotel and gardens.

We hope to see you again soon!

We booked the Royal Palms based on reviews we viewed on Tripadvisor, and we are so pleased that we did. Royal Palms is a lovely, small hotel with so much charm and character. Our room was sparking clean, the bed incredibly comfortable and the location superb. We were within a 10-minute walk to Front Street in Hamilton. What we loved was that the management left the doors open to all vacant rooms so we were able to take a peak inside and see the layout and decor of all the other rooms, all of which were different but equally lovely and inviting. The staff were all friendly, accommodating and very attentive. The continental breakfast provided each morning had delicious fresh fruits and an array of breads, muffins, pastry, cereal and juices. We will definitely stay at Royal Palms Hotel on our next visit to Bermuda.

With only 30+ rooms, Royal Palms is a small gem of a hotel just off the main roads of Hamilton, but reasonable walking distance from Front Street. We spent two relaxing nights here in November at the end of an international sailing championship. The room was spacious and very quiet with the windows closed. Opting for fresh air, we still were not bothered by street noise.
And yes, we crazy Yanks did enjoy two swims in the pocket sized pool (about four good strokes in length) while the natives scratched their heads in wonder at our folly.
Breakfast on the covered terrace was extensive and tasty. The staff was very welcoming in at all hours of day and night.
Our schedule was too full to avail ourselved of the restaurant for dinner, but local friends tell us it is excellent. The Premier and his wife were leaving it one night as we waited for our own taxi!

Over the years been to several beach islands and always stayed at luxury resorts or all-inclusives. Bermuda has several great resorts located on beaches but for a change we decided to stay at this highly rated place on tripAdvisor. What a great peaceful location and experience it was. It's almost living in your own house. Nice gardens, swings, small pool, pleasant breakfast, and very very neat rooms and beds. We enjoyed walking everyday to Hamilton downtown which took about 10 minutes and purchased a 3 day bus pass to travel on the island.

A must consider place when you travel with family or group of friends.

Room Tip: Walking distance to Hamilton Bus Station that has buses to every corner of the island.

We spent 2 weeks here 6/10/12 to 20/10/12. We found that this Hotel and staff were the best that we have ever experianced. The level of service coupled with happy, enthusiastic and attentive staff who all did everthing they could and made this a fantastic place to stay.
The accomodation we had was a superior suite in the gardens which was very clean and contained everything that you would need and all of which worked and was cleaned daily.On a daily basis the the buffet breakfast was very good quality and taken in a delightful breakfast room, on the patio or in the beatiful gardens, weather allowing.
The hotel has an excellent formal restaurant 'Ascots' which is one of the best in Bermuda and the food and staff were excellent however this is expensive if you are on a tight budget, it also has an informal restaurant which is much more reasonable and the quality of the food is just as good. There are many restaurants in Hamilton which a short 5-10 minute walk away along a street which was well lit with a seperate pavement which was very safe and an easy flat walk.
Hamilton also has a bus and ferry terminal from which you can easily visit the rest of the Island so this hotel is ideal as a base to explore the Island if you do not want a beach holiday.
The swimming pool is small but very well appointed with a supply of towels, sunbeds,chairs and a honours bar which provides soft drinks only.
We will definately stay here again the next time we visit Bermuda and would recommend it to any of our friends.

Room Tip: The superior suite in the beatiful gardens are excellent but the whole hotel is in a quiet location...

My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at the Royal Palms. We were totally impressed from the moment we arrived. Teresa was fantastic; welcoming us and showing us to our room, called The Flamingo. It was spacious, with a kitchenette and meticulous. It had a private patio for us to enjoy our morning coffee or glass of wine. Teresa was extremely knowledgeable about the routes to take, restaurants and their hours of operation, and sights not to be missed. She was so warm and welcoming as were all the members of the staff and a special thank you to Myrna for all her help and assistance. The grounds of this hotel are breathtakingly gorgeous and very well maintained. The daily breakfast is served in a room overlooking the gardens and had a nice variety of breakfast fare, although I would have liked to have some cooked eggs, scrambled perhaps, instead of making soft or hard boiled eggs. My husband totally enjoyed the waffles! There is a pool that was hardly used and we enjoyed it one day privately! The hotel is a ten minute walk into town and near some excellent restaurants. The Ascot and Just 24 are in the hotel and serve excellent food. I would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return again. You do not get this kind of hospitality at the larger resort hotels. It was so nice to be greeted each day by our names and we were made to feel 'like family'! Thank you so much Teresa and Myrna for helping to make a little vacation so very special.

My wife and I stayed for 2 days in September and couldn't ask more from the wonderful staff. It turned out that there are two properties - we stayed in the one with the reception but there is another nice looking block just across the lawns.

Room Tip: Had a very nice de luxe mini suite but try for the larger rooms in the annexe building.
