Reviewed October 25, 2011

I spent only one night there and wished it was more! I will come back for sure. The renovations were done very well and the grounds were beautiful.

Spent several fabulous nights at the new Royal Palms in August. While I loved the intimate oasis atmosphere of the previous location, I found the clean, sleek aesthetic of the new Royal Palms very appealing. I love the cafe by the main (clothing-optional) pool. Great food and cocktails (charged to the room) lounging at the bar or around the pool enjoying lots of eye candy! Though not every one was naked, it was comfortable, relaxed and natural (as it should be!) They also host a monthly Sunday tea dance and we were luckily there for that. It was THE place to be for the afternoon - 2 DJs (one by each pool), drink specials and a mob of HOT GUYS! yummy! Can't say enough good about this place - did I mention that it's 1 block from the beach and about 5 or 10 minutes from Wilton Manors? We've booked another 4 nights for next month and I can't wait!

We just travelled to Florida this pas week. We stayed at the W in Lauderdale, the Westin in Key west and The Royal Palms. Our favorite by far was the Royal Palms. The rooms were spotless clean and the staff were very helpful.

The location is great. We did not have a car for out stay at the Palms and the staff made sure we had a cab right away every time we needed one.

Will definitely choose the Royal Palms over the W next time...can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: If you prefer an area with a little less activity, choose the back building

We stayed in RP for 12 nights in a row and enjoyed ut very much. Never seen rooms so clean. Big compliment for housekeeping staff. Bar team needed to start up for the season. Making a cappuccino in an international hotel should not cause too much hassle and making a cocktail looking at the menu for ingredients does not work. For the ground floor rooms overlooking a public parking area we think something should be done in the bathroom. Hotel should be aware of guests not having a rental car as far as excursions are concerned. We had to find our own tour company that picked us up from the hotel. Reception could not give us this info. Actually, it used our tour company for new guests. Quick learners :-)

These comments are just minor to all efforts from the staff to make our stay a special one. Always things to improve but you will love this hotel. Compliments.

Thank you for your observations regarding your recent stay with us. As always, we welcome constructive comments, it is how we get better at providing the utmost in service and value for our guests.

The bar staff had received a new drink menu from our chef just a few days after your arrival and with 14 new fresh cocktails, it is sometimes a learning curve to have to refer to the menu to insure that you receive the best cocktail in town. After speaking with our chef regarding your cappucino, you noticed the next day that he had a new machine brought in to serve you the best most consistent drink posisble.

The bathroom windows are being addressed as we speak and again we are grateful for your observations.

Once again, thank you for your patronage and your contribution to making The Royal Palms Resort and Spa the premier destination for gay travelers. We look forward to your return soon. Please follow us on social media to keep informed of all the happenings here at the Largest Gay Resort and Spa.
