The phone number leads to a "please select from the following" message that gives no option for the marina, and nobody answered on VHF channel 16. The docks are rough, though rumored to be updated along with the electrical which was sketchy, at best (I was able to run one AC unit and house loads from two 30 amp cables (the 50 amp outlet was not attached to the pedestal). The approach is shallow, as is the area just outside the docks. We ended up docking between the north dock and a set of pilings 20' away, requiring a sharp u-turn with < 2' of depth below the keel (we draw 3.8 ft). Doable, but not ideal. The Snag-A-Slip listing indicates there is diesel. There is no diesel. The restaurant is not bad, and the one marina employee we met was helpful, but was working with some harsh realities. It's not a bad location, so hopefully the updates will happen and make it a better stop.

A Note from the Marina:

Snag-A-Slip reached out to the marina manager for further comment but did not hear back regarding this review. The amenities on the Snag-A-Slip profile match what the marina's public website has posted.

I can't say enough about this marina. Everyone here was so kind and helpful! The pool and hot tub were great amenities! There are men's and ladies restrooms, with showers, right there at the pool. Very nice and super clean. There is a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers, at $1 a load. The on-site restaurant is no longer open but there is a water taxi, on site, that takes you to the resort restaurant and it's discourwd for marina guests! We found the channel to be well marked with plenty of depth for our 4' draft. This was definitely one of our favorite marinas. I would highly recommend staying here.

Doing the loop and stayed two nights on the way south. Have had some issues from Ian so no restaurant on site anymore. That's ok they have a shuttle to the island restaurant so very handy. They have a pool and hot tub to relax in and a grocery within bike range. Also a convenience store close. Give them a try they can use the buisness.

We had no trouble finding the marina. The transient dock is an 80 foot long, fixed dock which is the first thing you see as you enter the marina. We used fender boards to help keep the boat off the piers. There is a short walk to the restaurant, which has the bathrooms and showers. The restaurant had great food and a live band. We were able to celebrate a birthday in style!

This channel is not marked, charts say it is but it is not. The water is shallow and oral directions from the staff are not helpful. Boat US is nearby. Beware.

Royal Palm Marina is nice, friendly, accommodating, clean and maintained. Facilities are integrated with the restaurant, but we didn't find any problem with this. A night key is available to boaters renting slips. They have a good monthly rate. There's nearby laundry, shops, and restaurants. The local, nice and clean public SCAT transportation is 2-blocks away and travels around Englewood and up to Venice, with connecting buses to Sarasota (and island i.e., Longboat Key, etc.), and onto Tampa Bay. The No. 16 bus easily gets you a variety of banks and businesses, Publix, UPS Store, and local Walmart.
