“Beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you are considering a time share in this area, this would be a good choice. It's right on the beach. It's not too large a place, so book early. There are not so many activities at the resort itself (they have things like bingo and movies), but if you are coming here, you probably are interested in the beach anyway.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view

Poor Evelyn was the only clerk on duty. I stood in line patiently waiting as she checked in another family. They had questions and she took the time to address each question. She looked up, saw me and realized I had been waiting a while and said, "Can I help you with something? I am going to be a while" I told her that I was just waiting to check in. She apologized for the long wait. My assigned room with a view wouldn't be ready until 2 pm so she offered me another room that was ready. I had a family member who had not had an ocean-view so I told her we would wait. She made a call and continued to check us in. The phone rang and I heard her say, "Yes, She is still here. Great. Thank you." She hung up and told me that there was a clean room with a view is ready"
Things had changed since I purchased there during their grand opening. The same green table is in the living room. They've changed out the white tv stand for brown wooden one. Next to the sofa there is an end table with white legs and a different color brown top. They kept the same lamps. The dining room table is nothing like the quality when I purchased at this resort. Mismatched furnishings was not the Wyndham way and should not be now! There is no key card access to the garage. You must remember a code or pull down the parking pass to read the code off the back of the parking pass. The concierge and the piano is gone from the lobby. The Game Room is not in the room off of the lobby anymore. The luggage carts are locked up because people kept them in their room. So you must stop by the front desk to check out a luggage cart before you can check out. The pool towels used to be kept in the rooms. Now they have a crazy card system and not only do you have to keep up with a room key, but you are given a plastic card to take over to the next building to a towel window and swap it for towels. They close at 5, after which, you get pool towels at the front desk or they run them up to your room. You can put the towels in a built in drop box in the lobby near the bathrooms. I asked if I give the front desk my pool towels and collect another card since I would need towels the next day to use poolside. The clerk was not sure since the system was new and kept changing. She had to ask someone else who told her to give us new plastic cards when we put our towels in the bin. I don't like al the inconvenience. Change back and put the towels back in the room. They put a grill area in ad a swing near the Tiki Hut near the beach. There s no Jacuzzi so we went across the street with our towels to Santa Barbara Resort to use their Jacuzzi and pool. I was shocked to find that the Santa Barbara Resort had a concierge desk, coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the lobby. Royal Vista had cold water in the lobby. Royal Vista used to be as nice as its sister resorts but has lost its luster. If it were not for the ocean, I would skip it. Other than these inconveniences, the place is so soothing. We turned off the air and slept with the windows open, listening to the ocean waves. It was awesome!

Room Tip: I have stayed here many times. Ocean view rooms are the best. Parking lot rooms are very noisy.

My party stayed at Royal Vista from Friday through Tuesday morning, so it was a quick weekend. I rarely get to south Florida and so wish I had planned for a week at this resort. Royal Vista was a pleasant surprise. It took me awhile to figure out what made it stand out from the other Wyndham resorts that I have stayed at, but I’ve decided it was the staff. They were friendly, hardworking, everywhere, but invisible at the same time, and really went out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. Both my boys commented this was a nice resort, especially my 22 year old who stated he’d like to revisit.

We reserved a 1 bedroom for our party of four, but also had a studio unit over at Santa Barbara. I couldn’t rent the unit, so my son chose to use the studio himself while my mother, 8 year old and myself stayed at Royal Vista. We checked in at 10 p.m. Check in was painfully slow considering there was only one other customer ahead of us, but we were rewarded for our patience with a 2 bedroom unit. I’d requested building one with a view of the ocean, but we were in building two I think. Unit 8114 (I think). We did get an ocean view.

The unit was in excellent condition. I didn’t notice anything that needed refurbishing. Everything was in working order with the best feature being the huge shower in the master bedroom. I loved it. Great water pressure and we had plenty of linen for to meet our needs for the multiple showers we took after our time at the beach. We enjoyed the balcony. A few more chairs would have been nice, but we had a nice view of the ocean on the right and left of the building in front of us. The kitchen was fully stocked as always with Wyndham and I liked the tile flooring (always nice at the beach) and granite countertops. The beds were extremely comfortable. We requested extra pillows and received them within minutes. We had great Wifi reception for one laptop and two tablets.

There were at least two pools and fortunately for us neither was ever overcrowded. The Tiki Bar on the beach was nice. I thought it was reasonably priced as were the beach chairs and umbrellas. $5 a day for a chair and $10 for an umbrella. They had a weekly rate that I thought was very good compared to what we’ve paid in Myrtle Beach and Destin. The beach was very clean and there was live music by the pool closest to the beach which I enjoyed. I ate at the snack bar – a hotdog which needed to be cooked a bit more. Can’t say I had a desire to get anything else from there and we didn’t.

Parking was easy. There is a garage and you can access the elevators directly. You receive a code at check-in. I would preferred a key access, because I couldn’t remember it. Overall I thought it was very secure. There always seemed to be a staff member moving about in the garage no matter how late or early we were in there. This resort is well staffed. I can’t say that enough. Pool towels were provided in exchange for a card you were given at check-in.

The resort had activities, but we didn’t take part in any of them. They served coffee and tea in the lobby and on Sunday there were bagels and fruit. I’m not sure if that’s standard on Sundays or if it was special for Father’s Day. Anyway, it was nice to come down for coffee in the morning. I have a Keurig at home and admit to no longer knowing how to operate a standard coffee pot, so we chose to grab a cup in the lobby.

The first night we picked up pizza from Umberto’s. Yummy. New York style. Very good. We didn’t eat anywhere else locally, because we spent most of our evenings in Deerfield Beach. I did visit the Publix. It was a Publix. Can’t say I’ve ever had to park in a garage to get to one but it was free and my car wasn’t boiling when I came out so it was cool.

I highly recommend Royal Vista for a family or couple looking for a laid back beach vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach view on a higher floor. Gorgeous. Building one has wrap around balconies. Sweet.

This place has the location and the bones to be something really nice, but somehow it falls short. We have stayed at other Wyndham properties and were very impressed, so our expectations were high. Unfortunately, I would put this property in the middle of the pack as far as our time share experiences go. They had done some upgrades to the room, but the shower was in particularly bad shape. There were tile floors throughout except in the bedrooms, which makes sense for a beach property, but they only had a broom to clean the floor. A mop of some sort is necessary. The beach itself was very nice as were the pools. The fitness center had a decent selection of machines and cardio equipment. The staff was friendly and helpful. The indoor parking garage was a nice feature to keep your car cool. We were on the A1A side and could not see the intracoastal. Lots of traffic noise to deal with. Perhaps an ocean room would be better.

Room Tip: I would go as high up and as far away from A1A as you can get. There is a building #1 that is detac...

Stayed May12th to May 19th

Pros... Arrived early as we were staying at the Palm Aire about 8 Miles away and was met by Janet at the front desk. I asked if we could drop our cases off so we didn't have to leave them in the car, After a few minutes of checking she found a room that was already avaliable which was great so we checked in really early. Great sea view on 8th floor. Beds were really comfortable and the unit was clean. Every employee at the resort was polite and the grounds were tidy and clean and the pools were nice.

Cons. Called the reception a week before we arrived to have a Pack and Play and a high chair in room for our Grand daughter, was told it was first come first serve which i thought ok. When we arrived i was told by Janet that Royal Vista does not have any of them at all and the person i spoke too should have known. Palm Aire has them but not Royal Vista. So we had to hire them at a cost of $119 for the week.
The Furniture really needs updating Sofa and the Chair looked like free issue from the Salvation Army old and didnt match.
The Air con is very noisy also it works on motion sensors so when you leave the room it cuts out also at night when in bed the same thing, can get very hot at night.
We found the beach to be very dirty, lots of waste plastic and rubbish on the beach every morning.
The wifi didn't work on the 6th, 7th and 8th floors had to keep bringing I Pad down to reception to get a signal at first i thought it was just our floor but i spoke to various people on differant floors who had the same problem we all reported it to reception at various times during the week.


We have stayed here many times and have found it is slowly in decline. Probably won't come back anymore

We spent three nights here over Easter in a 2 bed apartment. The apartment was very spacious and beautifully furnished in white,blues and greens. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is right on the beach which is why we booked here and we weren't disappointed.
We came to spend time on the beach so did not use the pool area which was looking a little tired and in need of some TLC.
Good restaurants nearby.
An enjoyable few days.

This is our 5th time staying at Royal Vista and I must say it was a bit of a let down. The grounds were nice enough but our 2 bedroom unit has seen better days. The tile work in the master bath was very moldy and the shower floor and walls were covered in pink water mold. Gross. Bathroom fans did not work. The bathroom faucet came right off as I was shutting it off. It was quickly repaired.

Check in was a breeze and most of the folks at the front desk were very pleasant. The beach was, as usual, lovely. Kids activities were lacking this year, much to the disappointment of our 7 and 12 year olds. I think we'll take a break from reserving this timeshare next year.
