You can't go wrong with a room here if you're hoping to see the beach. The team was helpful and nice, you can walk to tons of restaurants and night life, and the bar at the pool has good deals at happy hour. The rooms are very large, bright, the kitchens are wonderful and the beds are some of the... More

I highly recommend Royal Palm Beach Resort. The hotel is located just minutes away from the Airport, a $12 taxi ride. The rooms are actually Condos, all with a spectacular view of the bay... so don't worry if you're that guy (like I usually am) with a view of the parking lot. You don't be disappointed! The facility includes several... More

Just got home after spending 2 weeks here. I love this resort ! The rooms are big and always clean and an ocean view from every unit. They keep the pool and the grounds very clean! They were busy painting and cleaning while we were there. We have been coming here for years. Good activity program with nice prizes. The... More

We found the royal palm to be very clean and the staff were very friendly.Had no problems with checking in. I had read from previous posts that they were famous for overbooking, Rooms were very spacious and overlooked the beach. What a wonderful way to start your day to look out over the bay.We saw several cruise ships passing by... More

First time staying at the Royal Palm and really enjoyed the beach. The unit was very nice with a lovely view. We liked the proximity to restaurants and bars in the area. The staff was very friendly and very responsive to our requests.

All of the units face the bay. The restaurant and bar are in the middle and there are some loud activities in the bar area. Units at either end or on upper floors will be the most quiet. The units are nice and large but sparsely furnished and in need of an upgrade. The one time we tried to eat... More

I stayed at the Royal Palm through Diamond Resorts. It was not quite the normal Fiamond .quality but for St Maarten it was a very nice place and location was amazing. All the rooms face the ocean so there is no bad room. We were on the 5th floor and the views of the bay from the lanai was amazing.... More

Big , comfortable we'll equipped , Exelent view , and very good location. The price was expensive and the service very poor, we spent 1 whole week and we only had room service 1 day. Extra room service cost 55 dollars per day , too much if you are paying more than 300 per night. No breakfast included . Nice... More

Didn't stay here but had breakfast here twice. Food was pretty good. We tried to have dinner one night but the cook said we are not serving dinner, I'm going home. The next day we had breakfast and the manager said the cook was sick..hard to believe as I saw him running to his car to get home.

We went with another couple and had the best vacation ever! The weather was perfect and the beach was quiet; there were always chairs available at the pool and at the beach. There were plenty of people around, but enough seating for everyone to be comfortable. From 2-6 every afternoon many of the drinks were half price at the swim... More
