We have been celebrating our anniversaries and our relationship at the Royal Palms for years. We typically book summer time as the rates are a bit lower. The service is impeccable and starts from the moment you arrive when the bellman welcomes you and takes your car. They charge a resort charge that covers tips and I like that as they encourage you not to tip every time you get your car from valet service which is mandatory. I like it because they cool your car and have it waiting when you call from the room. I love the original old fashion feeling of a small family estate and how it would have been years ago yet with modern amenities and service. The last time we stayed I opted for the rose peddle turn down service and it was a hit. While we were at dinner they put candles and roses on the bed and nightstand with chilled champagne. The restaurant T Cooks is awesome for dinner but we have also had awesome breakfast and lunch choices and they always have a special wine selection. The resort has many options to chose from when it comes to rooms ranging from high end houses where President Bush stayed many times to regular hotel type rooms. We always go for the Alvadora Spa Terrace Suite as it is larger and has a wonderful free standing claw foot tub along with a wonderful steam shower. Check on their website for their rooms and decide before you come as they all offer something a little different. The Alvadora Spa is amazing and I have had several treatments but highly recommend the couples massages and the mud wraps. We have stayed at JW Marriott a couple times also but this is a totally different level and more for couples in my mind than kids. Lazy river and large pools are at the JW for a reason and I like this place for the opposite reasons. At The Royal Palms there is one smaller sized pool and hot tub more like you would find at a person's house. Remember this was originally a family residence and has a long history. It is romantic slow paced relaxation for adults. Yes kids are welcomed but personally I would not take them. If you want high end service and an awesome selection of rooms and that old time luxury feeling then this is the place. Treat yourself and your relationship. Happy Travels.
