I had a wonderful time. Hotel grounds and room are kept impeccably clean. Staff and visitor are friendly . I could not have asked for more. If I ever needed anything it was promptly provided. I recommend the LaPhage.

This is our fourth time here, we use the timeshare service. The rooms are large and well maintained, island decorated and very clean. The location is excellent, on beach, walk to 20+ restaurants in Maho Bay, underground parking $5 a day with guard, laundry room. It can get a little noisy at night with all the evening activity but once... More

This was our 4th trip to the Royal Islander. (We don't own a unit, but rather we rent one.) This is a nice place to stay, units are big and well appointed, view very nice, and the location is superb, with a number of restauants right out the front door in addition to the supermarket, casino, and pharmacy. Everything is... More

We had stayed here 3 times in the past and loved the location. We had always had a great time and felt safe. In Sept. 2014, we were attempted robbed at gun point right outside the Royal islander LaPlage. Their security people there were no where to be found. The resort did nothing to help us after . Just a... More

Great location with a market, pharmacy, casino, shops and restaurants nearby. Hotel itself is not at all swanky but is clean and has everything you need. Units have a full kitchen with all the accessories! There was even a blender and a wine opener! The beach right in front of the hotel is quite small and is actually a public... More

I stayed at Royal Islander Club La Plage in July 2014 and loved it. The location is great, and you are in walking distance to good restaurants, grocery store, and beaches in addition to the one on the property. The pool and grounds are very well kept, and the staff, front desk, bartenders, etc, were all very friendly. I am... More

Although our 2 bedroom unit could use a little updating, everything about the resort speaks to a welcoming happy atmosphere. Walk in the morning with David to explore the area, then water aerobics. Bingo some afternoons. Lots of nice beaches and entertainment in Maho.

We have been coming to St. Maarten since May, 1995 and own two time shares. This review is about Royal Islander La Plage. The accommodations are nice, and while not as updated as our unit at Divi Little Bay, freshly painted, clean and well kept. However, the best thing about Royal islander is it's on site bars, restaurant and location.... More

This hotel is not about the rooms but the location.The rooms are somewhat dated. Ceramics in the bathroom were a strange shade of pink and the "kitchen" was a wall of mismatched cupboards with appliances. There was a table to eat at as well as the living area. A small balcony with lounge and table and chairs. However by day... More

I just returned home from my stay at the Royal Islander Club la Plage and I cannot say enough how much I loved it. The staff was helpful and the room was very clean. The best part of staying here is the proximity to everything. Maho beach itself is very nice and entertaining. There are a few fun bars on... More
