We just returned from a stay at the Royal Palm Beach Resort and we had a great time. I would say that the resort was exactly what I expected based upon the general consensus of the reviews I read in advance. The rooms are very roomy and comfortable and our view was spectacular. We loved the close proximity to the many restaurants and the casinos and we were able to park our car and do a lot of walking. We felt very safe walking to dinner in the evenings. You just need to be aware of traffic and stay off the road. When we wanted to cross the street, drivers were very polite and would stop to let uscross. We especially liked Lee's and Saratoga's and if you like lamb you can't leave without trying the braised lamb shank at Pineapple Pete's The sister site Flamingo is within walking distance and there are excursions and activities offered at the Marina there. We had a blast doing the Rock 'N Roll Snorkel through Aqua Mania. We also really enjoyed watching the luxury yachts pass by our resort to go through the bridge. I did check for evidence of bed bugs based upon prior warnings but I saw none and we had no mysterious bites. The bedding was actually surprizingly soft and clean. As others have said our room appeared to have been fairly recently refurbished and there were no maintenance problems. We had a light in the restroom go out and it was quickly replaced. We spent most of our stay out and about, but our interactions with the staff were pleasant. The service wasn't cruise ship exhuberant but the staff was accomodating when we asked for directions or recommendations. We had drinks at the pool but never ate at the resort and we found the service to be quick and the drink prices were reasonable. The little touches that I missed were a washer and dryer and a jacuzzi tub in the room and a hot tub at the resort and I would have liked a slighlty bigger balcony to enjoy the amazing view, but all in all we were happy with the accommodations. We will be returning to this beautiful island and this would be my preferred area to stay in on my next visit and I would stay at the Royal Palm again.
