There aren't many older condos or hotels in Playa which have retained that hacienda style charm while still fulfilling all the needs of the modern traveler. This particular one does just that. When you walk in, you feel like you have found your own special corner of Playa that feels like home.
Not all condos here are created equal, and some do not have a/c, so really read the description before signing on. It is more of an issue in July or August but during the winter months the ceiling fans are sufficient.
The Royal Palms is a short walk from the best beach, (Mamitas beach) and is convenient to everything. There are many good restaurants nearby. A car is not necessary as the whole strip is very condensed and is only about two miles long total. This is great base for vacation and a very good value, as the condos are spacious and clean.I was surprised that it was pretty quiet considering how close to the action it really is.My suggestion is that if you stay here, you should go with the higher floor / nicest condo that you can afford. Unit 6 is very nice. You will find the service good and the people friendly, but be aware that this is not a full service hotel but a condo complex. So it is more or less self serve.
I had a great time while staying here, and would definitely come back!
