This small hotel is a gem. We flew in and were 5 hrs late and got to hotel and staff was gone but they left a letter for us to go directly to room and it was open for us. Nice touch in my book. The room was great, nice decor and colors oils to burn. Shower was nice without... More

This is a charming property that has been recently redone in a kinda "Bali Resort" style. Breakfast is service poolside every morning. Free WiFi in the lobby. Great cable service. The best part is the location, its a short walk from Orient beach which is breathtaking. There is a great little market nearby for snacks etc. The rooms have a... More

Wonderful location in Orient Bay. Beach and Village are steps away. Rooms felt newly renovated with nice touches like candles, scent, small bowls filled with herbs. Room size is very nice with large bed, sitting area, desk and terrace. There is also a well stocked small kitchenette. Modern bathroom with hair dryer (but no shower curtain or glass -- its... More

My husband and I loved this hotel location. It was very close (literally a walk across a parking lot) to Orient Beach (which is now our favorite beach anywhere). The hotel was extremely clean and had a nice kitchenette though we didn't really need to use it. We liked the breakfast every morning with fresh crossaints and fruit right at... More

The Palm Court hotel is situated in the Orient Bay village in St Martin on the French side. The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated, and the rooms were comfortable. The room had a small kitchenette, which was great for fixing snacks and drinks in the afternoon post-beach. The walk to the beach is just across two parking lots,... More

The rooms are clean and attractive, though no frills. The management very helpful. We have stayed at several hotels in Orient Bay and this is our favorite.

My husband and I stayed at the newly reinvested Palm Court and will definately be back! Everything from the location to the decor to the excellent hotel management/service far exceeded our expectations. The boutique hotel is located adjacent to the Village and just steps to the beach. The manager, Sylvia, recently completely gutted and refurbished the hotel with so you... More

We stayed at the Palm Court Hotel from Jan 27th til Feb 3rd of 2008. All the hotel rooms that we saw had kitchenettes with microwave, fridge, hotplate, dishes, and sinks with cleaning supplies. The rooms were very spacious and spotless. The showers are huge and completely open, without curtains or doors and really quite useful, as such. Water pressure... More
