Royal Palm

South Beach, Miami

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.

Felt I really needed to write this review as it was a catalogue of disasters from the minute we arrived. Whilst staying in Orlando with my daughter I decided to book two nights in Miami. We managed to get a good deal on the Royal palm hotel. We arrived at about 1.15 but was told our room wasn’t ready yet and they would text us when it was so we went and had some lunch by the pool, it was boiling and we were not dressed to be sitting in the pool. We never got a message and we eventually got our room at 5.45. Within 10 minutes of arriving in the room a banging noise started. I immediately rang down to customer services after no one answering on front desk and said we couldn’t stay in that room all night with all the noise(room 437 which was a disabled room even though we are not disabled) They sent a engineer up that said it was the lift shaft, I got the impression that they were aware of the problem. I was then told that there was nothing they could do as they were fully booked and I would have to put up with it and in the morning pop down to the front desk and they would change the room. After a horrendous night we went down and was told they hadn’t got anything yet but pack our things and they would move us. He took our keys off of us which meant we couldn’t get back into the hotel from the beach. We then went to breakfast which is advised on their web site for $18 but when we got to the desk it was up for$21 and then we’re told it was actually $24.we were shown to our table we were served tea coffee and orange juice we had cereal and then went up to get some more when we returned our table had been cleared and someone else was sitting at it. We then went on the beach ,the chairs are included in the resort fee but we had to pay $22 for the unbrella,which we paid cash for, after 15mins we were told due to the wind we would have to have the umbrella down, so we went up to the bar after having to wait for someone to let us back in as we had no key. We had one drink then went back to the beach but found someone else sitting on our towels using our umbrella when I told the beach people they said it didn’t matter they set us up another with no umbrella he said to go to the hut for a refund. We got settled and ordered some drinks we put them on our rooms but she came back and said the front desk had called and we couldn’t put them on our room as we hadn’t got one, I said I would pay cash to which I was told they couldn’t take cash,at this point my blood was boiling. I then went to get my refund from the beach hut for the umbrella and was told they couldn’t give it to be but he’d would give me an umbrella the next day I explained I wasn’t there the next day, with Four of them just staring at me he said there was nothing he could do, after exploding he gave me the money back. We then checked to see if we had been messaged by the front desk but surprise surprise they hadn’t. We eventually got another room at 5.30 after explaining we were Marriott members and owned one of their vacation homes, they upgraded us which was. nice but no apologies for what we had been through. I feel the whole experience was really upsetting and the lack of customer service disgusting. I don’t normally write reviews but felt in this case I had to I will definitely be complaining to Marriott directly. The only compensation they gave us was they waived the resort fee for one day. I have never in my life been so relieved to leave a place. Read less
