Faith Popcorn predicted we would all be searching for "authentic experience" in this century. She would enjoy staying at the unique Palm Court Hotel. All around the hotel, in the other three-story, condo-looking units, massive amounts of pastel paint are being applied, but Palm Court, with its '70s vibe, attractively rusty pathway lanterns, dark rouge exterior, lush shrubs, and scrolled...

The hotel is a short walk from Orient Beach. They have arrangements with two beach bars for chairs. The property was very nicely kept. It is also a very short walk from Orient Village with nice restaurants. The staff was very friendly.

Anne and her staff are very friendly and perform their jobs, much like I have come to expect from the French with great enthusiasm. The hotel could use a bed makeover, as they are uncomfortable hard beds with edgy springs (unit 12). If you are a sensitive sleeper like my wife is then staying on the 1st level would not... More

Average beach hotel, the location is the thing about this spot. Wifi is awful but not sure if that is a resort issue or an issue for the island as a whole. Rooms, beds, bathroom are all adequate but a refurbishing would not do the place any harm. Breakfast is again adequate but a little change throughout the week would... More

Anne and her team continue to provide great service at Palm Court. This was our third stay there, and we continue to enjoy the hotel, the staff, and the location. Anne was very happy to arrange taxi and dinner reservations in Grand Case, as well as the Scoobi Too catamaran day trip to Anguilla. The staff is very helpful in... More

Palm Court is one of the few up to date facilities and is a 100 yards from all the Orient Beach Restaurants, general store, bakery and the beaches. The rates are fair. The manager Anne was very supportive.

Overall my wife and I had a really nice stay. The rooms are somewhat dated but decent enough. The breakfast is not worth waking up for but with all that being said the rooms were fairly clean, the employees were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The property is located literally a 2 minute walk from all the beaches that you... More

Me and my family stayed at this hotel one night on January 10, 2015. I am so grateful that it was only one night. We booked 2 rooms numbered 21 and 25. As we were walking towards the front desk area to check in, a young woman rushed past us almost knocking into us to get around and ahead of... More

We absolutely loved the location and this area of St. Maarten! Location is perfect, and the grounds are beautiful. The access to the beach, restaurants, etc. -perfect. The staff, Ann (manager) and Melissa (breakfast staff) were wonderful! However I competely agree with the other reviews. This hotel needs some rennovations!! I love small hotels/motels, as I perfer charm and character... More
