I resently spent several days at the Royal Palm with a friend and we had a great time. The service was outstanding, they were so accommodating, no matter what our request the answer was "Yes". Rooms were clean and well kept with a personal note upon my arrival. We took advantage of the gym, although small very adiquite with all new equipment, perfect for a vacation work out. We also took advantage of the spa for massages, the deep tissue was exactly what I needed after my work out. The food at the bar was also right on, if you wanted a salad, a hamburger or a egg white omelette, they took care of it. I'm already making plans to return in the fall. This is the best of the gay resorts in the area.

Good day Steven,
You are 100% correct the answer will be “YES” you are here to experience a style and a new standard in a gay male’s guest house. We have raised the bar to levels which set us way apart from everyone else.
I am glad you got to use the entire property. We do have it all and are right on the money with everything we do.
We also agree, we are the best gay resort in the area.
As always we await your speedy and safe return with open arms.

Have stayed at other clothing optional resorts in FtL. This one is the best. The two-pool option is great. Although, I did spend my time exercising my option and going nude at the clothing optional pool. The heated pool was welcoming--not the cold shock of cold water.

Terry, Carlos, Rick and the other staff were helpful and informative about FtL.

Bought a spa package. I'm a massage therapist. Withholding my comment. But, you should consider a spa package.

The onsite bar and bistro were terrific. One-stop enjoyment.

Room was always cleaned.

Room Tip: Had a corner room second floor c/o pool side. Great.

Greetings Terry,
We are so glad that you have stayed around at other guest houses before and now that you have stayed here you can see the big difference between us and all the rest, you see what sets us apart and how a guest house should be run.
It is nice having a warm pool to get into and not get the big shock of a cold pool.
I am glad that Terry, Carlos and Rick helped you out with everything you needed.
Also, yes the spa here is a definite to do, let’s just say that should be on everyone’s bucket list of things to do at the resort.
As always we await your speedy and safe return with open arms

I stayed at the Royal Palms over Memorial Day weekend and the overall experience was outstanding.

I enjoyed spending time by both pools, both different vibes and both enjoyable.
The onsite restaurant/bar is a great plus - no other gay guest house in Ft. Lauderdale has this to the best of my knowledge.

The staff is superb and the rooms are comfortable and spotless.

I already made a reservation for Thanksgiving weekend. Can't wait!

Room Tip: Stay in the 2nd building if you want to avoid any late night talking by the front pool and bar.

Greetings Howard,
Thank you for staying with us over the holiday we love hearing that it was outstanding.
Having two pools affords us the ability to have a place for everyone, and yes we are the only guest house in Fort Lauderdale that has a bar and grille on property.
Thank you for saying the staff is superb we strive in that to make sure that we are above all the rest. Thanks for noticing.
As always we await your speedy and safe return with open arms.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! That's all I can say about virtually everything I experienced in my week-long stay here. Friendly, HARD-WORKING, and helpful staff. Convenient bar and restaurant on premises. Short walk to the beach. Best massage of my life (so I booked two!). Great comraderie among patons, with many guests who have returned often (and I can understand why!). Clean and comfortable rooms. I found this place to be super extraordinary, and I will be back again and again and again! Thank you all so much for a vacation I would rank as one of my most memorable, enjoyable, and (when I wanted it) relaxing. All success in the world to you guys...you definitely deserve it!

Room Tip: I stayed near the front pool, which is busy well into the night. The noise never bothered me, but i...
