I live here in Phoenix,AZ and found this hotel almost 6 years ago. I am a nudist male and sometimes going to the big naturist resorts can be costly. ...but for a small fee, a man straight (like myself) or gay may spend a better part of the day sunning & swimming. As a nudist, I'm happy to say that... More

Centrally located in central Phoenix... Easy drive to meetings in Scottsdale. Convenient to great bars and restaurants... Many in walking distance. Owner present, engaged and hospitable. Friendly environment. Pool and hot tub wonderful. Grounds well maintained with desert landscape. Rooms well appointed and conducive to longer stays. These gay resorts are getting hard to come by... Glad to have found... More

Just got back from my second stay at the Royal Villa. The place was a true oasis to just lay back for a week and let the world roll by. They were pretty much full booked for the entire time and most of the guests seemed to be regular return guests who were all most pleasant. The pool and hot... More

Now I understand why this place has gotten some bad reviews ... I simply called to get information about a possible future stay. I was in the area visiting family and asked if I tour the facility. The owner (I assume) indicated that was not possible since it was clothing-optional and he didn't want people gawking at guests. I understood... More

One of the cardinal rules about the hospitality industry is confidentiality. Respect goes hand in hand with that responsibility. Our guests and day passes pay for privacy. We do not do tours because of this. We have found that many a "tour" seeker is out for a cheap thrill and we will not subject our guests to this behavior. As... More

This may be a bit late, since I stayed there in March 2014. Still one must give credit where it is due. Doug helped me find a room with a kitchen, and when I had an itinerary change he arranged to accomodate me an extra day. The grounds and rooms are beautifully kept and show true pride of ownership.

Had a very nice time, very quiet and relaxing. Some rules that seem a little over the top, but I think it is because they care. Not a bad place to stay while you are in Phoenix, friendly and close to downtown.

An excellent resort with very nice landscaping, pool and jaccuzzi. The very gentle owners invest a lot of time to maintain and keep this resort in very good shape. VERY nice appartments, no breakfast, no other facilities than the ones mentioned. Daily passes available.

This is my only place to stay while I stay in Phoenix. The owners always accommodate my late arrivals. They keep the grounds clean and I always meet nice guests.

The Royal Villa continues to be one of the best values in gay resorts. The location is great and it's very easy to get to anywhere in central Phoenix. The rooms are comfortable, attractive, immaculate, and have full kitchens. The grounds are very nicely landscaped. The owners have gone to great lengths to improve the property over the years. For...

Thank you so much for your kind review. Regarding the pool, we have a heat pump on the pool. It is not like a gas heater that blasts hot water into the pool. Rather, it takes a couple of days to start up the warmth and depending on the outside temperature, it sometimes feels a bit chilly. We do always... More
