Some hotels call large rooms "suites" when in fact they are just large rooms with a chair. The room that I got at the Royal Palm was TRULY a suite having a large separate lounge (couch, chairs, tables - the whole lot). It was extremely tastefully equipped and very comfortable - good linen, fluffy towels, top quality soaps, etc. The room lives up to its name of "royal".
The one thing other travellers may not like is the lack of a proper hotel feeling. The rooms are really apartments and there are none of the normal services you would relate to a conventional hotel such as porters, concierges, etc. The only staff I saw were a person at the front desk (small counter) on check-in and a cleaning lady. But this appeals to me - I like to look after myself and all the extras that you find in "grand" hotels are just a waste of money and you know they are going to end up on your bill somehow. I much prefer all of the money to go into the things that matter to me - great room, home-style facilities, great location. And the Royal is spot-on with all of these.
