Villa Royale is just a few hundred yards off of South Palm Canyon (hwy 111) but when you walk in you enter another world. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the large hotels but it is so calming and comfortable. It was just what we were looking for. After we settled into our room (105 highly recommend) we headed out to the pool. Great pool area with a full indoor/outdoor bar that opens directly onto the pool area. The front desk staff, Jack and Jacob, could not have been nicer or more accomodating to our every need. One of the extras you can order is to have rose pedals scattered over the bed before check in. But I talked with Jack and he said he could make it happen while we were at dinner at Europa. When we came back to our room he had the bed folded down, chocolates, and rose pedals scattered. Great service. We stayed there and never left the property. A great place to relax and unwind. We had dinner both nights at the Europa restaurant. It is expensive, but they offer a prix fixed three course dinner. The wait staff was wonderful. I've had better food but it was very very good. Well worth a visit to Europa. The ambience is dynamite. The inn does attract an older group and I wouldn't recommend it for children. Teenages would not care for it. If you're looking for a quiet, charming, European feel, boutique hotel; this place is for you.
