4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great staff, huge rooms for the 2 bed/2 bath. Very clean. Great pool. Food was ok. Recently reduced the size of the gym but still great. Right in the heart of the action in Simpson Bay. you can walk anywhere and you don't need a car. It was my second time there and found great deals online.

We needed a 7 day getaway from the cold Northeast weather and came across Royal Pam Resort in Cole Bay. Best part about this is hotel is their location. It's 5-8 min away from the airport and it's right in front of their restaurant row. Plus, it's near all the major ports to go check out other islands (St Barts,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Palm Beach Resort from November 14 to 21. This is our 6th visit to St Martin over the past 3 years. This is the first time we have stayed at the Royal Palms. Overall the Resort was OK, more or less as advertised and depicted in the reviews on Tripadvisor. However, there's... More

We loved our stay at the Royal Palm! The units are clean, bright, and large and the king sized beds are very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and work hard to keep the resort looking clean and new. Location is great- grocery store 5 mins away, lots of great places to eat and drink. We got really lucky and...
