We chose this resort because we have been to St. Maarten before and knew we wanted a convenient place to sleep while we would be gone to different beaches each day. The Royale Islander fit this need very well. We walked to Maho Beach and the Sunset Grille to watch the planes land. We also had coffee each day on... More

Spent two weeks at this hotel at the end of February. Third floor one bedroom suite. I would avoid the main floor as I don't think you would have much of a view at all. The lobby hallways and pool areas were spotless, there were always staff cleaning sweeping and washing. The room was much as we expected based on... More

We visited the island for our two week break, the first week at sonesta, great bay Philipsburg and the second at the royal islander. High points: none! Low points: the resort was soul less. The reception reminded me of somewhere where you would go to collect parcels. No niceties - no cold towel or welcome drink and forget a warm... More

Location is great close to shopping, restaurants, beaches and casino. Front desk staff good, housekeeping staff excellent. One bedroom unit spacious, kitchen and appliances out dated but clean and functional. All facilities very clean. No issues with linens or towels.

This supposed resort is equivalent to a Motel 6 not a Gold Crown Resort status. Disorganized would be complimentary,dark reception area the security guard outside was the one who started checking us in. When we got to the room we were horrified at the accommodations, dirty toilet, bedspread very used looking, TV in bedroom didn't work, bath towels laying in... More

We only stayed here one night. There was no wifi, which is terrible, however the beach is amazing and you will never get closer to a jumbo jet landing on a runway. It is truly a sight to see. There is a casino next door and some great tourist hot spots along the road in front. Maybe not the best... More

The front desk was very unorganized. The pool is boring, there is a bar that is not opened. All the action, including beach access is at sister hotel across the street. When you try to access it they yell at you. Furniture in room is uncomfortable. Most of the appliances are broken or non functional. The outlets are broken. The... More

Royal island club La Terrasse is an average hotel. The rooms are large, clean but outdated. Good set of American TV channels. The grounds are clean. The hallways are dark at nighttime but they have security walking the hotel. The hotel is next to the airport, beach, shops and casino. Overall, average hotel on scale of average holiday inn.

Unfortunately she wasn't... That's really what a guest is asked for to have wifi access available at the Royal Islander! I must confess however that this was the only dark side of a wonderful week me and wife spent at Maho Beach, St. Maarten! Regarding the hotel, the location is fantastic (specially for those like me that can spend hours... More

I have stayed at this location three times while visiting St Maarten mainly through my former RCI perks. The location is why I stay here. If you don't like airplanes and the noise they make then I'd suggest looking somewhere else. I have worked for the airlines for 24 years and my fascination of the metal birds never gets old....
