“Great service and staff”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

They treat you as if you were on a cruise. Everyone is professional, they want your business and they have received some good training. It has to feel better for them too when they get told how delightful they are.

My partner and I stayed here in August 2012. I had stayed here in February and had a good experience we chose it for this stay. Unfortunately there were a few things that were surprised by or that didn't meet our expectations. The biggest thing is that recently this property stopped being a clothing optional resort. We did not know that and were not informed at the time of checking in, and found out in a rather embarrassing way. However - upon checking out and letting the manager on duty know of our dissatisfaction, he comp'd our stay...we did not expect this and did not ask for it. This incredible act of customer service has kept Royal Palms on our list of desired accommodations.

Greetings Atldave214,

I am so glad to hear that you came back for your second stay. Just to clarify we are clothing optional only after the bar is closed and only in the area by the bar. This should have been told to you on your confirmation email that everyone receives so I will look into that and find out how that happened that you were not informed. I am glad that we went the extra distance and did that for you.

Hoping you come back soon, be safe and hurry back .

I had the great fortune to spend last weekend at the Royal Palms. I was visiting Florida for a birthday memorial for my brother who passed last year. First let me say the staff was very compassionate regarding my reason for being in Florida. Second from the moment you step through the door you are made to feel like your the only gues there and this is your private hotel. The service...flawless...the room was spectacular.inviting..clean and wonderful. Proximity to the beach one block! Two beautiful pools...great food and the servers were attentive and entertaining!

When returning to the Fort Lauderdale area its the onl;y place I will stay. I promise you...you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Get the room with the balcony. 1204!

This was my second time there. The staff is great (words can't express how helpful they are). The rooms are void of clutter and have contemporary design (as they call it; I wouldn't have a clue :) but i love their serenity). There are two sides of the resort; much of the action is by the bar and pool and while the other side also has a pool, it is much quieter (which I enjoy). The resort is located only less than two blocks to the beach (and about 10 minutes walk to the Sebastian Beach). The Plaza Bistro (same ownership) has delicious food and is across the street (try the triple chocolate cake with port). Food from there is also delivered to the bar. The resort is within walking distance to the CVS and a whole bunch of souvenir shops and restaurants (I enjoyed Casablanca and Sushi Rock Cafe - the latter is on Las Olas Blvd, not walking distance, though).

Room Tip: A/C may seem loud and the room may feel too cold; however, you can easily adjust the speed and tempe...

Greetings mfy77,
We are so glad to have you back for a second time, and the fact that you see how great our staff is and how involved they are in making sure that everyone has a spectacular time. We really want the rooms to be sleek and very stylish with no clutter (so we don’t stub our toes in the middle of the night).
Also, being only one block off the beach having our own restaurant and bar on site; and might I say they only gay males resort on Fort Lauderdale Beach which is a complete real resort. To top that off also owning The Plaza Bistro and having 2 restaurants affiliated with The World Famous Royal Palms the standards of the Gay Male guest house experience just keeps being raised by us.
We are so close to all the action here in Fort Lauderdale that it is really easy to have such an amazing time.
Can’t wait to have you back for your third stay!
As always we await your speedy and safe return with open arms!

I believe I know of the birthday party you spoke of, we love hosting parties like the one you had with us. Our staff really tries to go over the top and take care of your requests. Terry I know worked hard at making sure that special day was a hit so thank you for noticing that. Just remember we can always take on an event like that anytime with a little bit of heads up, Just ask for Terry and he will take care of it for you.

As always we await your safe and speedy return. And let’s do your party here next!

The hotel looks amazing and the rooms are fantastic.

The onsite restaurant and bar were very good and reasonably priced.

The staff were top rate and were ready to help.

Great group of guests made the stay extra fun.

The location was near all the Fort Lauderdale fun and 2 blocks from the beach.

Recommend this hotel all the way.

Room Tip: Recommend paying a little extra for the larger rooms.
