Enjoyed the beach and the clear waters. Great view of the planes flying in. Terrific happy hour. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas at the pool and upper sand areas. The hot tub was subpar but otherwise grounds well kept. The rooms are a bit dated but who spends much time in their rooms ! The staff was pleasant but I... More

I have been going to this place for over 2 years twice a year now. I love the atmosphere, the dining, and most of all our bartenders. There is something amazing about their French fries, we have them 2-3 times a day. The rooms are great but I love the 2 bedroom ones. The view of the beach is to... More

Maho is the best (and most) fun place to stay in St. Maarten! The Royal Islander La Plage is very conveniently located. I stay in a 2 bedroom unit that has 2 baths and sleeps 6-8 comfortably. They have a sister property across the street, La Terrase. This property is very clean, nice pool, and the best bartender (Eva)! We... More

Great place to relax on the beach or in the pool. Casinos across the street. Sherri's restaurant a must. Lots of stores to shop in and grocery store as well. Can have chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Take the bus or bus taxis to get around to Phillisburg or Marigold. And of course go to Orient beach.

If you love the beach and planes this is the place to stay. The timeshare units come with a full kitchen, separate bedroom and living area. All units have a balcony overlooking the pool and beach area. This resort is right next to the famous Maho beach where the planes fly so low you can almost touch them. The Maho... More

Our home away from home...beautiful grounds, private upper beach, great front desk service. Visited once, and now own two weeks...love to watch the planes land while relaxing poolside, and watch the sun set with cruise ships departing at dusk.

We loved Royal Islander but I only have it 3 stars because it's the property is on the older side. We loved the location though because you could see the planes coming into the airport over the water! They're so close you can touch them! It's a family-oriented resort with mostly friendly staff. My favorite part was that you could... More

This is a larger resort on St Maarten, and many would state that this is the best run of all the timeshares on St Maarten. The location is excellent and allows for a lot to do with in walking distance but I still suggest renting a car while on St Maarten as they are inexpensive and it is easy to... More

We've been time share owners here for 25 years but it provides rentals as well. When we bought it was new and beautiful, it's a bit dated now, but we love it nonetheless. The staff are always friendly and ready to help. The place is clean and the pool is SPOTLESS. Very relaxed atmosphere. Right next to the airport, but... More

LOVED it! Our suite was clean and stocked well, although we never cooked, beyond coffee. Grounds are immaculate. Security is visable. The pool is really clean and wonderful. Food at Tortuga is great, you cannot beat the view. Location couldn't be better. Easy to get to nice places to eat, the casino, all on foot. The market across the street... More
