Beautiful and relaxing place to unwind. Great atmosphere, incredible pool and excellent service!

The Royal Palms is a rare spot in Phoenix that actually feels old. It was built as a getaway home for a wealthy New York financier's wife and child. It's a gorgeous space that you should at least visit, even if you don't stay here. Have a drink at the on-site restaurant T. Cook's. Soak up the stunning views of Camelback Mountain as you sip on a cocktail. I really love how historical this place feels. The landscaping here is gorgeous. Be sure to Instagram a photo of the fountain flanked by palm trees out front.

If you really want to pamper yourself, book a night at the Royal Palms Resort. It's one of the smaller resorts in town, and I think also one of the most beautiful. It feels like you escaped to a Mediterranean retreat. There are cobblestone path, fuschia bouganvillea blooming everywhere, antique art on the walls, and really nice views of Camelback Mountain (the resort is right at the foot of the mountain). It's definitely one of the most romantic and inspiring spots around town. Even if you're not staying here, you can stop by for a spa visit at Alvadora Spa.

Some hotels feel like they came out of a box: plopped down, prefabricated and ready to run. The Royal Palms is different. Its growth feels natural. What started as a single house backed up to Camelback Mountain in 1929 has expanded over the years to cover 8.5 acres of mountainside property.

The place is gorgeous. Everywhere you look is green, flowering. Romantic winding paths through the grounds. Fountains and sitting areas cover the property so there are plenty of secluded nooks to relax and take in the scenery. Tranquility awaits at the on-site spa.

I saw two rooms when I visited the Royal Palms: a designer casita and a room in the Montevista building. Although the casitas are a bit more secluded, each with its own fireplace and private patio, they seemed a bit cramped. Gotta say I liked the Montevista rooms a bit better, especially given their view of a beautiful fountain-filled patio.

There is a reason the Royal Palms has trademarked the term, 'Romantication.' This resort is the ultimate in the romantic getaway - they even have their own romance team to guide your experience and guarantee pure delight! Its rustic elegance really does take you to another time and place, forgetting you are even in Phoenix. Relax on a grassy knoll beside the pool, get pampered at the Alvadora Spa and dine at one of the finest restaurants, T. Cook's Restaurant and Lounge- which serves some of the best Mediterranean inspired menus in the country. Although the resort hums romance, friends and family can enjoy a trip here, as well. With packages that promote 'Stay and Play', 'Picture Perfect: Bachelorette Boudoir' and 'Harmony Within', The Royal Palms Resort and Spa knows how to treat each and every need and desire; and the staff members are superstars.

You will love this place. Ask for Kenny at the bar. Dinner is expensive but it is a Five Star Resort. Enjoy the beautiful grounds and the music and dancing in the lounge.

Ok, I only witnessed a portion of their Romantication offering but if I ever want to impress a lady, you know get serious, I will book a weekend here. From a distance I saw a couple eating in a private location with their own live music playing for them. I inquired with the staff there, who are great, and they told me they have an entire program customized for romantic stays with several options, from private locations to be served dinner and live music selections. The resort caters to couples and weddings but the resort is gorgeous, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. I enjoyed their fitness center, wouldn't be one of my reviews if I don't bring that up. All in all, great experience.
