5 out of 5
Royal Palm Beach Resort is in a prime location. Approximately 20 minutes from the airport. Walkable area to dining options, grocery store, spa, liquor store, pizzaria and bars with live music. All rooms are oceanfront. The 2 BR/2Bath suite accommodate 6-8 people. Full kitchen, dining table, living room with convertible couch, 3 flat screen TVs and outdoor patio. Soon to be a part of the Hilton hotel chain. Calm beach can be very windy, causing sand to fly around. Hotel may want to wet down sand in the morning to prevent "flying sand". Friendly professional staff.

Beautiful ocean view rooms

Pros: We loved being right on the beach in a spacious two bedroom unit with a kitchen.
Cons: I would have loved a bathtub and a broom for the sand we brought in.
Location: There were lots of good restaurants and water activities including: jesting, paddle boarding, kayaking, and snorkeling.
We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Palm very much, waking each morning to beautiful sunrises right from our very own balcony. The hotel was right on a lovely private beach.

Nice hotel

Very nice looking hotel, very clean, however during check in was told my room was not ready and the front desk agent would tell the housekeeper to clean our room next. I left the resort came back two hrs later and the room still not finished. I demanded a room as I was waiting for so long. I think got into my room where the balcony door wouldn't lock, the front door wouldn't lock all the way( strong winds would swing open the door), in the middle of the night the ac starting leaking from the closet destinying my clothes I had hung in there and the living room tv did not work. Other than that it was a nice short stay, beach was nice, staff was nice. But was not compensated for my loss of amenities.

Royal Palms

Pros: Close restaurants
I found a great deal online for this resort and traveled with 5 people. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with a full kitchen. One thing we learned real quick is that eating out is expensive, for any meal. There is a good supermarket within walking distance so we bought breakfast and dinner stuff and cooked in a lot. The resort is beautiful. The beach is a bit small, but gorgeous. We went in September which is considered "low" season for them. The resort wasn't crowded at all, but there were enough people around that you didn't feel alone. It is also close to the airport and you can see planes taking off from the front side of the resort. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There was only maid service once a week, but we had no issues with that. We had a dishwasher for dishes and hung towels to dry. We took taxis to whereever we wanted to go and were charged $5 per person on every trip. They did charge us $6 per person to go to Philipsburg, but that was a good 15 minute ride. I really can't complain about anything at this resort. We are already looking into going back next year!

I had a reservation, but they overbooked so we didn't get to stay there!!!

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet, Noisy
We booked a reservation at this oceanfront resort. However, upon our arrival we were told that they did not have a room for us because they had overbooked. I would not recommend this resort. We were asked to put our vacation on hold for two days while they tried to see if a room would open up, but it never did, so we ended up staying in a remote condo they put us in. Not the island beach vacation we had planned! We had to pay for internet access and there were no resturants on site.

Beautiful setting.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was a great hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The views were great. The restaurant was the only thing we didn't care for.
