Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Live in luxury at Royal Palms Resort and Spa, a Conde Nast Traveler 2013 Gold List hotel. You will be met with unparalleled service from the moment you enter the roundabout to park. Valets greet guests with bottled water and show them the way to the lobby -- which is housed in a stucco building with wooden columns and intricate tile.

Phoenix sees 300 days a year of sunshine, so chances are you can cool off in the pool during almost any visit. The Forbes 4-Star spa opens to a courtyard with plenty of comfy chairs while you wait to get a treatment. Specialty treatments include a lavender and aloe quench wrap and simply citrus manicure.

After a dip in the pool or a spa treatment, sip cocktails crafted from fresh ingredients at The Mix Up, the resort's new bar. T. Cook's is right next to the bar and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tempt your palate with culinary creations like lemon ricotta pancakes or tomato fennel risotto.

Estate rooms have a Southwestern flair with plantation shutters in the sleeping quarters that open to reveal the deep soaking tub in the bathroom. Valencia casitas look onto the resort's gardens or Camelback Mountain. All have a semi-private patio and many feature a gas-burning fireplace.

Guests are responsible for a $30 nightly resort fee that covers use of fitness centre and spa facilities, housekeeping, concierge and valet gratuities, property-wide Wi-Fi access, a 10% discount on retail products at Alvadora Boutique, welcome refreshments and more.

From the press:
  • "This gorgeous little hideaway has the feel of a Spanish villa and is so romantic and beautiful that the moment you set foot in the first cloistered garden, you might imagine that you hear flamenco music" -- Frommer's
  • "Scattered on the property’s 65 acres are 30 casitas and guest rooms carefully appointed with custom-made Mexican- and Spanish-inspired furnishings—four-poster beds, leather-covered coffee tables, tall armoires" -- Travel + Leisure

Enjoyed Most: The lovely grounds, pools and fountains
Other Comments: We went into T Cooks for breakfast Sunday. We were immediately given fresh coffee and water but then no-one ever came to take our order. We ended up having to leave without breakfast because we had an appointment at ten. Happens sometimes. Not a biggie. This is a beautiful hotel. They do hit you up for parking and I don't know about you, but "resort fees" always but me. I always feel like I'm being nickeled and died. Here is a wonderful classy hotel and you end up paying for use of of the amenities? I'd rather just pay more for the room upfront and not feel like I have to pay for the "gym" that I'm never going to use anyway.
