Royal Palm

South Beach, Miami

Virgin rating

The hotel

An inspiring oceanfront beach retreat, the Royal Palm offers modern, vibrant living whilst keeping intact many signature elements of the original Art Deco design. Rooms are gorgeous, with stunning city or ocean views, rich linen robes to relax in and organic bath products. When you’re not out and about sightseeing or strutting your stuff down at the beach, relax by one of the two pools, a cocktail in one hand, a good book in the other. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness centre and Renew Spa based on Himalayan salt with six treatment rooms. There are restaurants all around you but for good eats look no further than Florida Cookery, the hotel’s signature restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For cocktails, South Shore is definitely one of the places to be seen.

Lovely experience - had an oceanfront full balcony room and the view was perfect and spectacular. We arrived well before check in, and the front desk was so great - we waited for a higher floor room (8th) and they were very communicative as we waited. The room was comfy, large and very clean. Yes, some wear and tear but it didn’t matter at all.… Read more

Yes, some wear and tear but it didn’t matter at all. Had lovely buffet breakfast each day with Esther P and awesome pool service with Alberto. I loved the mocktails at the bar, Grove. It was tooooo hot for alcohol at the pool. Would definitely stay again! Read less

This place needs a face life badly. Rooms are not that clean either. If you get the apartments suites not bad but still in need of a face lift. Front desk service terrible. They don’t help with anything Wanted them to arrange a rental car for me. They don’t do that. Never heard of a hotel who won’t help you with finding a car. Pool small and… Read more

I just stayed at the hotel over memorial weekend and I was literally blown away from the time I pulled up!! Keep in mind I am someone that has over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry so I’m very particular. From the moment I walked in every employee exceeded my expectations. Ricardo from the valet is a complete sweetheart. His smile and genuine personality and work ethic blew me away!! The front desk employee’s Mahia (at check in) and Boris and Issac (at checkout) were also amazing!! You can tell they all value working for the hotel and genuinely care about people. Other honorable mentions Siva serving at the beach and Gus at the bar!!! Read less
