“Good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

My sister and I stayed there for my spring break. We weren't familiar with the area at all and didn't know what to expect when we chose that place. We had to walk to the beach but not too far. Plus we rented a car. Front desk people weren't overly friendly but always professional and helpful. Housekeepers were nice, and we had no issues with the service. The room was big and had a private balcony (I just wish we could have a higher floor). Overall everything was great, and we'd probably stay there again.

We stayed here after our cruise that left from Miami. The staff was more than helpful even when I made some stupid errors when booking. They fixed it all correctly. The rooms were large and very clean. The bathroom updated and spa quality. We got there early, around 11 and they were happy to check us in. My only complaint was that live music played in the pool side bar until 10 PM on Friday and was very loud. But I guess that only reflects that I'm old and like to be asleep by 9:30. There are restaurants within walking distance and a laundry mat within 2 blocks. No laundry facilities on site. Mc Donalds, Dunkin Donuts and pizza. Even a nice Italian and Greek place too.

It is about 2 blocks from the beach which by the time the cruise was over we were pretty much beached out. Thank you all for a great stay!

Very clean property but off the "beaten path" to the strip. Not a good place if you don't have transportation. A little hike to a public beach. No ice machine so you have to get ice when the bar is open (from the bartender). The luggage carts don't wheel well so be prepared to carry your luggage to the room. Parking is terrible.

Room Tip: Says partial ocean view and it's "partial" alright! We stayed on the 4th floor but the...

I booked this hotel last minute not knowing what to expect. I was spending the day in ft lauderdale beach and I wanted something relatively closed and this ended up being in a perfect location. A $10 taxi ride will take you to the strip if you don't want to drive. One great feature this hotel has is free parking and they don't charge a daily resort fee like most Miami hotels. When we got the room we where pleasantly surprised, the rooms are renovated and extremely clean. The front desk staff was friendly and I have nothing to complain about besides the rude bartender downstairs. One thing that is deceiving is that the hotel isn't close to the beach at all. Across the street is what seems like private condominiums with private beach access only. Overall it was a nice 1 night stay at the Royal Beach Palace.

This is a review coming from a Married couple who lives in Fort Lauderdale and have STAYCATIONED at just about every hotel/motel in the area. This is by far one of the best hotels in the area on the beach. If you are looking for a VERY CLEAN, relaxing, family friendly stay close to everything (Beach/nightlife) but not in the middle of it, this is the place for you.

Contrary to what a few others have said on this review site, this hotel is very clean, the service is great, the rooms are beautiful and we had a great stay. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, no wait for towels, just nothing to complain about.

Parking is a little lacking but we were given a spot in a neighboring hotel for free. If this is a problem, try staying in south beach for a weekend. You'll pay more to park than for a room.

All in all, we loved this place and are going back this coming weekend.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 2014. Price was reasonable - room was modern, large and immaculate and it had a balcony. Just a few block from the beach. Had a nice breakfast in the restaurant which was lovely. Had cocktails with friends at the pool bar. Staff was friendly and helpful. Big plus - free parking in the rear of the hotel. We had a rented car. This hotel is on a main street so it can be a little noisy. However it did not bother us in the least.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here next time we cruise.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies that face the main road. We had no issues with noise from the street.
