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

RI La Plage is a new favorite for several reasons. The area - Maho is perfect for nightlife, clubs, restaurants and casinos. An added bonus is the arrival/landing of the planes. You can witness this right on Royal Islander's beach which is a perfect spot. Or walk down to the famous spot next to The Sunset Beach Bar and watch... More

Hi. Wy have been coming to st. Maarten on and off with Interval international swaps since 1997. Mostly we have stayed at Pelican/ Simpson Bay resort, Royal palm, and Oyster bay resorts. We never see Royal islander open for exchange because i think most owners are RCI and we are not. When i saw a one bedroom available for halloween... More

We were guests of friends who exchanged their timeshare elsewhere to stay at RIC. We had read several very negative reviews and were a little apprehensive about this facility. After our week at RIC I can only say that the negative reviewers must have stayed at another resort. Our 2 BR suite was immaculate. Yes, the bathrooms are a little... More

Having been an owner at the old Pelican Resort in Sint Maarten we always heard that Royal Islander was a great Timeshare Resort but wouldn't trade there because we owned in SXM already. We did let the Pelican week go and just traded into RI. We read a few unfavorable reviews here and wondered since we had not been to... More
