I have been at the Royal Palms MANY times, I love that place. It is always quiet and the pool and the grounds are gorgeous. The beach could use a decent seawall but other than that, as Tony the Tiger says, Grrreat!
I found slowlyretiring comments regarding the locals offensive as well. The beach and the pier are the Queen's property. No one can own or restrict them EVER. The have more of a right to be therer than anyone, period.
Captain Jeff, ditto on EVERYTHING you posted.
