We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo! It's on the top floor of the property, which makes for wonderful views from the seaside balcony. Also, because Royal Palms abuts a state park, you will enjoy a beautifully uncrowded beach during your stay.

The extra bathroom is wonderfully handy, and we found the entire place clean and comfortable upon our arrival. The location is impossible to beat. You are within minutes of most of the area's dining and shopping, with the beach only a short boardwalk away.

Perfect View, Beach, Location

  • 5 of 5

Already looking at dates to come back next summer! Coffee on the balcony every morning with that wonderful birds eye view, then off to the beach... The beach is extremely clean, soft sand and beautiful water, and was not at all crowded, even over the weekend. The apartment was fresh, cool, and clean, comfy bed, and we found it to have everything we needed (including beach umbrellas and floats). The elevators are convenient and fast. The pools/hot tub were also very nice and not crowded—we loved being able to cool off in the pool after spending all day on the beach. You can walk along the beach to a few restaurants and bars. No complaints at all, would highly recommend!

A wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our children, 2 and 5. First off, you can't beat the location! The property is the last in the line of condos and abuts the state park/fishing pier. It's directly on the beach...just a few steps across the boardwalk, and your toes are in the sand! The beach is beautiful and never felt crowded, even though we visited in peak season. The condo itself was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. Our kids slept in the bunk beds, which were in the hallway. It worked well for us, and my husband and I were able to hang out in the living room without disturbing them after they went to sleep. There are two full bathrooms, which was very convenient for us. The most wonderful thing about the condo HANDS DOWN is the view from the balcony! The condo is on the very top floor, which allowed for breathtaking views of the gulf and beach! Sunsets were gorgeous. There is an indoor AND outdoor pool, which we used every day and the kids loved. There are plenty of restaurants and activities nearby. Communication with the owner was a breeze- he always responded quickly. The light above the stove went out during our stay. He was out of town and unable to fix it, so he offered us a credit for the inconvenience, which was really very nice. Overall, I highly recommend staying in this unit! We had an amazing family vacation and would love to return again!!
