I just returned from 4 days at Royal Palms. We were there to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Royal Palms was the perfect location. When we arrived our room was ready. I had also preordered champagne, fruit and chocolates for our arrival. We were taken to a room that someone was already in. No one is perfect but the sign of a great resort is how they handle mistakes. Within 5 minutes we were in our Valencia Casita, with Champagne, fruit, and chocolates. I received a call apologizing for the inconvenience and the champagne etc, will be taken care of.
The grounds are incredible. The staff is ready to help with everything.
The resort has a $30 charge per day. This includes gratuities (you can still tip). Great idea!
I booked a private dinner in the bell tower. This was a surprise for my wife. The stairs up to the tower were covered in rose petals. There were candles along the way. At the top the was a beautiful table covered with rose petals, and candles. There was beautiful music as well. It was the perfect evening.
The pool area is small but perfect for the size of the resort.
Here are some tips on things to see. Drive the Apache Trail to Tortilla Flat. Beautiful drive. Have lunch at the Superstition Saloon. Great atmosphere, great chili.
Take a day (leave by 7am) and drive to Grand Canyon. It is unbelievable. It is an incredible sight.
On the return head to Sedona. Take the 89AZ instead of 17. What a spectacular drive. Sedona is a very nice place.
Royal Palms is more for couples.
Thank you to all the staff for making our 20th anniversary special.
