I arrived here on Sunday, 7 of January. I will stay till Saturday night (13/14 of January) with All Inclusive services.
I love almost everything:
- We received the room quite soon after arriving even if was 11:00 AM
- Excellent variety and taste of the food
- Good beer, wines and other drinks
- Water on the beach is served in bottle not in simple plastic glasses
- Nice bars and restaurants
- Nice and big rooms but a little outdated furniture
- Many activities and nice animation staff
- Large swimming pools
- Nice reception
- Beautiful beach
- Etc

3 weak points:
- Too many flies in the beach area
- No heated swimming pool outside
- Very small indoor heated pool

Anyway, for sure I will come back and also I really recommend this hotel.

Spent a very happy ten days a the Palm Royale over New Year. Three of us in an ample-spaced room. Food was terrific. Service excellent. We had the VIP package which included table-service breakfast with lovely views. Their New Year gala dinner was really fun. Tennis courts were good and available. Outdoor swimming pool in the Health Club area was warm and sheltered from any winds. Gym very well equipped.

We had a wonderful Christmas relaxing in the sun. Nothing was too much trouble, and all staff were friendly and helpful. We had an amazing massage and left feeling much more refreshed and relaxed than when we arrived

Stopped at the Palm Royale from
the 30/12/17- 06/01/18. Overall impression very satisfied. Staff were very attentive with a special mention to Mohammed at the Stella who went above and beyond his role and customer service. On a personal note the rooms could now do with being updated which I have seen a few people mention. The room I stayed in (1270) had a couple of defaults but nothing to ruin my holiday. Attended the Indian al a carte restaurant on the 03/01/18 which you can access when all inclusive and also the Italian on the 04/01/17 which were both delicious. Evening entertainment was a complete shambles but again I didn’t really go away for this and didn’t really bother me. Moving onto the year gala. The evening presented well with a good bunch on the table. Entertainment again wasn’t great but this would be hard to please everybody. Buffet on the night was to a high standard by serving a selection of seafood, Indian, english and some continental items. Desserts looked delicious which I didn’t opt for but heard good reviews about them around the hotel. Drinks on the AL package is good if you fancy a good old heineken but you do have to ask for this otherwise you will be given the local Stella beer. Johnny’s Bar within the hotel is ok as I’m a non smoker I found this very difficult to relax in and opted for the outside area which was better and less smoky. I’m not a snob but don’t like being covered in smoke or smelling of this. A recommendation for Johnny’s bar any chances of supplying some nibbles on the tables? after a few beers this would go down a treat. Moving on to the excursions Ali Hi Hi from the beach is a cracker with his sales tactics but on the plus side he does provide the excursions he sells to you. At the same time £50 and VIP is the best description I can provide. I can ramble on but I’m not going to just a few pointers for the hotel and upcoming guests. Would I return... mixed feelings bye for now.

We had a lovely Christmas break at this hotel. The hotel seemed quite quiet, probably only about half full at this time of year. The weather was decent, early to mid 20's, so good enough to sunbathe and swim, although the sea was chilly and the unheated outside pool was even chillier. There is a heated pool at the health club which also has a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room which we also used. The heated pool was a good option for when the sun went down at about 4pm. The buffet restaurant offered lots of choices, we were never hungry and the service was excellent. We tried the Asian a la carte which was lovely and the Greek which we didn't enjoy so much. The room was decent. We requested a high floor and two rooms together and this was satisfied. It would have been nice to have a balcony with sun and with the hotel under-occupied I think this could have been offered as a matter of course. That said, if there was ever anything you wanted you only had to ask and your request would be fulfilled very quickly so I am sure if we had asked for a sunny balcony we would have got one. Drinks were OK, cocktails weren't great but there was always something to drink and the waiters in Johnny's Bar and on the beach were fantastic at keeping you supplied. The pool bar was good for a snack at lunchtime or in the afternoon. Went on a very good snorkelling trip organised by Ali Hi Hi on the beach, highly recommended. The entertainment team worked hard and were friendly to all without being pushy. Not sure the majority of the entertainment was for us though. The piano player in the lobby was very good but I think she needs to play some more upbeat tunes as I found the song choices quite depressing day after day. All in all a very nice break in the sun with friendly attentive service.

Room Tip: High floor, sea view but not near where the camel is kept!
