WiFi @ Royal Palm

How easy is it to get a good signal @ Royal Palm? Cost?

Not planning to stream music or video. Just email & facebook.

I had very few issues in my unit in February, 2016 compared to years before when the best reception was in the lobby. I'm not aware of any fees for internet but when staying, we are there as a time share owner. Perhaps someone else may know of costs, if any. Hope this helps.

No fees. We were there a few months ago and they had just upgraded the wi-fi service. We had no problems. Have fun.

We were there a few weeks ago. There was no charge. Never tried the lobby. In the room was no problem. Out on the balcony was another story. I usually am up early and out on the balcony with coffee. I had to upload the newspaper in the room then go outside. Wasn't the worst thing in the world.

as a sailor always looking for a better signal, these are great and inexpensive. Perfect for those resorts with weak wifi

Thanks. This is our first time trading in to Royal Palm. We have stayed at Flamingo, Belair, and LaPlage in the past. They all charge a fee for wifi service.

Scubaman would know for sure, but I THINK if you are trading in to RP, versus renting another t/s owner's unit, that you have to pay for wifi.

As I recall I am 95% certain there was no charge added when we were there 3 weeks ago. We did an RCI Exchange in. However I do recall there being a $10 per day Resort Fee and if that is their way of saying cost of WiFi I stand corrected!

Yes, the resort fee includes the wifi. Timeshare owners do not pay the resort fee.

I was just at the Flamingo last week (sister property to Royal Palm) no charge for wifi and once we used the link to hook up it was OK. auto link didn't work. the best service was through the diamond link in the lobby.
