“great location, but the hotel itself is nothing out of the ordinary”
Reviewed 30 April 2011

I paid $A67 a night through AsiaDirect, and only found out at the last minute they'd bunged on some taxes, whereas on Wotif you always pay what they quote up front.

So I was a little peeved to begin with...although its all relative, A$67 buys you nothing in Australia or Europe, but it gets you a nice 3.5 star room in a prime location, so I should be less churlish...

The hotel is on the beach road, next to Baan Lamai, which is a much nicer looking, if slightly dearer hotel... The Royal Palm has no ground level pool to landscape around like the Baan Lamai or the Holiday Inn just a couple of doors down, so it doesnt give the appearance of a desirable place like those 2 do. But its clean, its quiet, and so long as its not bucketing down rain and blowing a gale like it was when I was there, the semi open dining area is a lovely spot to eat your breakfast or dinner with a view of the beach over the road, a view only slightly impeded by tuk tuks and passers by.

Its just that there was nothing special to remember about the place. My other Patong favourites stand out because they are either so tranquil and relaxing and affordably luxurious (Deevana) or else incredibly good value for money like the Patong Beach lodge. So its 3 stars from 5.

Room Tip: given the layout - dont think there is a best room

The only good thing about this hotel is the LOCATION and free wi fi. Booked the hotel trough Agoda. Stay in Palm Beach for 4 days n 3 night. Check in was ok.. as the staff can speak very little english... On the third day while i was taking my shower the water just cut off suddenly..Call the reception, she say they will check and call my rms back but never did. I went to 5th floor to rinse off the foam n shampoo but to nil water asa well. Call the reception again and she says after 20 min the water will resume.. as i taught waited almost 40min.
The shower will go either very hot or very cold trough out my stay. the room was very small n nothing like in the picture. .

We booked this hotel online for a short stay of 3 night. The hotel is located right across the beach. The rooms are small but cozy. For the location we got a decent price.

They offer you complimentary breakfast with is good and also is served from 6:30 to 11 so u have lot of time and as per your convenience. The hotel staff is good and courteous. You have loads of eating joint right outside the hotel. And guess what burger king is right next to it.

The hotel restaurant is also good serves good dinner and offers u a discount as you r staying with them. Also they have free internet which is good.

The only problem is that they dont have elevators but you would not mind it, I would definitly suggest you should check this place out.

Hotel staffs are all very nice and friendly. Requested for extra towel and it was sent up to your room within minutes.
Rooms were quite small but enough for 2pax in a room. lightings are somehow too dim for me.
Hotel located just opposite patong beach. Night markets stalls start right beside hotel. Food, shopping, massage and beach is all within walking distance. Only make used of the hotel's swimming pool and restaurant. Pools are considered small and food was not bad.
Like the staffs and service best. If were to find fault will be the room lightings.

I stayed at The Royal Palm Beach Front Hotel for a weekend in March 2011 and I can only but recommend the place: very friendly staff that goes out their way for you and great location on Beach Road.

I booked the Palm Suite, and it's a great but funny room: you enter the suite through the bathroom and find yourself in the bedroom before you enter the living room. Any visitor should be shocked :-)

There's a second entrance, straight to the living room, but the key card doesn't work with that door.

Second funny thing is that the sea view the suite provides is lovely but outside is a terrace, and it's the terrace of the hotel restaurant, so whenever you're moving around not so properly dressed in your living room: better close the curtains before.
