This is a lovely hotel for a relaxing break, it is quiet and have everything you could hope for.
i had a room without any outside space, on reflection I think getting a room with outside space would have been better. The room was large, separate TV / lounge, big bath, a lovely big and comfortable bed. The gym is very well equipped, particularly for cardio machines, I think there are 6 treadmills plus stepper and i think there was a bike as well, but it is all new kit with ipod connectivity. There is a cable machine and some free weights up to 50 kg. The pool is small (ish), a cooling off pool, not for swimming, but the service there is excellent, it was notable that the staff remembered that I preferred no ice in my water, there is also food available by the pool.
On my arrival it was a very nice touch to have some water sent to the room, plus a fruit platter.
The bar whilst I was there was quite quiet, but they do have a happy hour and "special" nights to liven it up a little, but in truth, this is a hotel for mature adults, not for the hedonists.
I thought the main restaurant was good, but not great, maybe it was my choices or my mood.
I went to the Fashion mall one night (it was a $15 towncar ride), it is very lively up there, lots of bars and restaurants, I went to Wildfish, which was good.
Royal Palms is a little isolated, so you probably need a car, unless you are like me and happy to stay on site.
I used the Spa on the last day, it is in keeping with the rest of the resort, quiet and stylish.
Overall, I had a lovely stay at Royal Palms, it is a classy place, quiet and perfect for relaxing and recharging your batteries.
