Thanks Captain Jeff. I forgot to mention the underwater reef that was built under the pier(& is still being added to). This is the cool type of stuff the RP has that most others don't. People can use this with their kids & have lots of fun for free in safe shallow water where you can watch them snorkel from a nice chair on the beach. Next time I'm down I'd like to help work on that reef to help give us the best snorkel area that's right at the resort possible. What types of fish/animals are there now?

Wow, the RPV certainly gets people talking if nothing else. It is true that the centre of the place is looking much better. There are nice cushions on the deck chairs, the chairs on the beach have been painted and there are cushions on those too. The lovely maintenance men who we really like are working closely with the head of the Executive Committee and are sorting out a lot of important issues such as electric wiring and tiling. I have to give the man some credit as he has been out in the sun on most days helping the maintenance crew in the sun and working hard. I'd love to see other members of the Executive Community contributing so much of their time, or as in the case of Capt Jeff, their money. It shows that they care about the community.

I would correct the poster mbtz, who said that the bushes had been cut back to promote blooming. Actually, that is not the case. Those bushes were blooming. The new gardeners thought that they were to be removed and cut them back to stalks to pull them up. They were saved at the very last moment and are very slowly starting to grow back. As for the gardening, it is all being done in the centre, but the area where we live is sorely neglected. We and our neighbours cut the hedges ourselves and water the lawn to keep it from dying. This is a bit irritating given that we pay the same fees as everyone else.

The usual suspects continue to cause trouble. Fortunately, we are on the end of it ourselves less often, but I know that they are still up to their old tricks. Stupidly, someone gave one of these people a job on the EC and that is when things went really bad. I have a magnet on my fridge that says 'Give a woman an inch and she thinks she's a ruler', which applies perfectly in this particular case. There is an annual general meeting soon and several little birdies inform me that there are going to be some major changes. We've had some lovely new owner occupiers move in here recently and I think that this will have a big influence on how things go at Royal Palms. The place has so much potential.

Sorry MTBZ, but when some one comes in on the middle of a very long dispute, with there first post and agrees with some one like Iammissing, of who obviously is a friend of the ladies that we speak of. You may get the flack end of things.
Now that I see that you are not taking that stand, welcome.
I have been working on the reef and other things with Colly and friends for a while, we just have taken a lot of grief and flack from so called management for our troubles, while at the same time paying high condo dues.

Hi JohnnyB, I just learned of the site but I do agree with most of what immissing & capt. jeff had to say. My goal will be to be friendly to everyone down there including the owners & renters. If someone doesn't want to be friendly back then usually if you're friendly long enough they feel foolish. I look forward to working on the reef & other stuff with everyone.

I stayed at Royal Palms about 3 years ago and I would NOT stay there ever again. It was boring and icky. There was absolutely no one there (vacationers) the pool was empty. And that would be okay but there was also ZERO SHADE and so I could not stay out there long. Yes its a nice pool. The condo we rented was okay but over priced. The residents above us would wake up every morning at maybe 5 a.m. and puke his guts out and be very loud about it -- and then move furniture??? TOO WEIRD. I did not have a good experience there. I have been back to AC every year since and stayed at Banana Beach. And I walked past there every a.m. last week and the pool was empty (again) and it did look in disrepair. I would not recommend Royal Palms to anyone. (sorry)

Sorry to hear about that bad experience you had. This isn't the same complex as it was even last year. 10's of thousands in capital improvements have been don in the last 6 months alone. Sine it's on over 5 acres it isn't crowded like Banana Beach & a lot of people like that. As for wierdos puking they now have security guards that would crack down on that. Take Care

Hi, I was just down there & the place looks great. I brought 5 different people from Banana Beach over & they ALL thought that Royal Palm was much nicer. A couple even said there was no comparison, 120' beach with no dock to 7-800' beach with a dock, 2 pools that are smaller in total than RP's pool, no open space to lots of beautifully landscaped open space, larger units with ocean views, etc... So, next time your back try RP again.

I looked at a condo at Royal Palms and thought it was too small, but I really liked the place in general. There are bigger condos, and I'm rather seriously thinking of buying a place there (though there are other places I'm also interested). I hear, though, that there are a few jackasses in the condo association who cause problems there. I think the pool and beach are both really beautiful.
