“You have to see it and you'll never want to leave it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I was on vacation in Florida and it was a last minute decision where to stay in Ft. Lauderdale. As many other people I am checking also the raitings here on Tripadvisor and decided to spend last 4 nights of my vacation at Lush Royale.

My first impression from outside was it is not a hotel like the others arround - no big lightend street signs, no laud music... and I was already curious what this place would be.
I was very warmly welcomed by Ric, one of the guys who is taking care of this property, and after the obligatory registration and paperwork at the office he showed me the hotel, garden, pool... My first impression was I just jumped in another world - everything is green and fresh arround, it is silent and relaxing, it is clean and excellent maintained. You see a great tropical garden with many plants, a nice pool with clear water, a small bar in the othe part of the garden and of course nicely placed tables and sun loungers. The sound of the water and the relaxing music just make you feel you get here and now you can enjoy the best place in Ft. Luderdale

I do not need to tell you about the rooms - beautiful, VERY clean, silent (you do not hear the neighbours) and those blossoms you see on the pictures which give you a romantic feeling

The general manager Andrew with Raibelis, Ric and all other guys just make the best to make your stay here unforgettable. If you have some wish or a problem they will do the best for sure to help you. Very friendly and nice ambience which you can never get in a big property. Here you are THE GUEST and a friend and they do the best to fulfill all your wishes.

Once you see and feel the relaxing atmosphere you would love to stay in the garden, on the pool or even in your room if it gets too hot outside. But it is only a very short walk to the beach and less then 2 miles to the Galleria Mall where you can do a good shopping. The location is just perfect and the free parking for the guests makes it very convenient.

If you are on the pool in the afternoon then you can enjoy great free coctails on the bar. Be aware the guys are mixing good coctails and not like those you get in some of the bars

I would warmly recommend this place to anybody who wants to have a relaxing get-a-way or vacation in Ft. Lauderdale. I'll definitely stay here on my next visit and I am sure it will be again not easy to leave Lush Royal after some nice relaxing days at this property

Dear Rado71,
Thank you for the great review of our hotel. I agree, you do enter another world once you open the gates to our paradise here. The relaxing music and the sounds of our waterfalls take you to relaxing place. The gardens and all the blooming orchids never seem to stop. It’s fun to just exploring the hidden secrets all around you while you’re here. As you said the gay beach and great shopping are just mins away, I’m glad you made time for all Fort Lauderdale has to offer. It sounds like from our Complementary breakfast, clothing optional pools and our famous poolside frozen cocktails in the afternoon you had a fantastic time!
We look forward to seeing you the next time you’re in the states and Fort Lauderdale!! Enjoy!

I’m not even sure where to begin, totally speechless! The service at HLR is absolutely amazing!
I recently spent 8 of the most relaxing days of my life in their beautiful, tropical setting. This
Was my 2nd visit and once again, first class all the way! The entire Staff went out of their way
To make me feel at home, receiving personalized attention from every staff member. Andrew,
The Manager is remarkable to say the least! He was so helpful and truly cares about each and
Every guest. He helped me out of a predicament late one Sunday evening. He Never made me feel embarrassed and was so kind, such a gentle and caring soul. He’s so much fun to Talk to as well, he had me in stitches a couple of times with his wonderful sense of humor! The property Will be expanding in late October /early November, adding on 16 rooms. For a total of 27 rooms I believe. Andrew gave me a tour of the new edition, I must say it is very nice as well. The rooms have a modern feel and very nicely decorated, with a courtyard In the center and an additional swimming pool. You can’t go wrong with either section. Once again my room was perfect and spotless. Robert worked his tail off all week, always making sure I had plenty of towels and cups, etc. Both housekeepers did an excellent Job during my stay. Kudos to both of them!! They have 2 new office Staff members since I was there last, Ray and Richard.They really hit the Jackpot with These 2! Their service was exceptional!! Both having friendly, positives attitudes, being very customer service Oriented and smiles that will melt your heart! (Andrew too). They both have their own personal unique charm. Ray Is from Columbia and so delightful and very pleasant. He went out of his way one evening to help me choose a place to order Carry-in for Dinner, very patient and attentive, never makes you feel rushed. Richard is from the Carolina’s and talk about your Southern Charm and hospitality!! If you’re a sucker Like I am for a Southern accent, All I can say is look out!!! Both Compliment the property very nicely. Highlighting some of the properties amenities, Cocktails served by the pool every afternoon, Mimosa’s on Sunday, Plush Bathrobes, fully stocked Continental breakfast, complimentary beach chairs, 10 minute walk to Sebastian Beach, lush tropical atmosphere, heated pool, hot tub. You also Have free use of the pool, bar and gym at their sister property,The Royal palms, just a 3 minute walk. A great big thank you To the entire staff! A Job very well done!! Hope to see you again soon! Big hugs to all of you!

Found an excellent place to stay when we wanted to escape for a few days. Our stay at the HLR was awesome. We had never stayed at this property and based our decision on the other reviews and we were not disappointed. The rooms looked exactly liked the photos and the grounds were well maintained and quiet. Ray greeted us like we were old friends returning for another visit. All the staff that we met over the weekend were wonderful and friendly.

An excellent choice and we look forward to returning to the HLR, and hopefully for a longer stay.

We have stayed at Lush Royale twice this year and each time was phenomenal...well appointed rooms, beautiful landscaping, heated pool, breakfast daily and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome - more like friends than hotel staff...In addition, the peaceful, quiet ambience is a nice way to end the day. This is by far our favorite resort and we are looking forward to our next visit!

I spent four nights in Ft Lauderdale last month. The whole trip was intended as a break from my routines ... a chance to try something new. Booking the Hotel Lush Royale was largely a stab in the dark, but a choice I made because of the exceptionally high rating on Tripadvisor. I prepared myself for some minor disappointment under assumption that these reviews were overblown.
I was wrong.
My stay there was entirely pleasant, the gardens are even more inviting than the photos suggest, and the staff treated me like an honored family friend. I cannot remember a time when I was more relaxed.
In fact, I would caution any daydreamer (such as I am) to carefully secure their most critical travel items (phone, keys, credit cards). In my happy haze of relaxation I managed to lose all of them. Nothing was stolen ... I just kept forgetting where I put them. Normally I find things by remembering what i was doing when I had them last, but I just didn't seem to have that frame of reference in this little paradise, where I was free to do anything I wanted, whenever I wanted.
Everything I have read here about the friendliness and attention extended by the staff is also true. When was the last time you remembered every staff member by name, and every staff member knew you? Andrew, Rae, David and Robert seemed to always be on the lookout for my needs and went the extra mile several times - including a trip back back to the hotel after hours when I lost my room key.
I left afterwards with a satisfaction in accomplishing my purpose of taking a break. I was still left with one question ... what do you do when you find an orchid in your toilet bowl every morning?
Thanks for a great stay!
Tim
