My two sisters and I stayed at the Royal Palm for the first time Jan 8-14 and enjoyed our experience tremendously. In the past we have stayed at the Wyndham Sapphire closer to the French side of the island but their rates were too high when we called to reserve in early November. There are definitely pros and cons to... More

We just returned from our 8th trip to the Royal Palm. Each year it gets better. They have done a wonderful job with maintenance over the last year. There are lots of outlets for charging electronics. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit and it was sparkling clean. Since we stayed for 2 weeks, the maid came a few times.... More

The Royal Palms is great resort with wonderful and caring employees. The only problem is that management does not enforce the rules about reserving chairs and huts on the beach and pool. At 0630 Hrs.today, 1/27/15, people are out on the beach placing their towels and bags on chairs and then leaving. Today at 1000 Hrs. most of these chairs... More

I absolutely love Royal Palm Beach Resort and it's situated in the perfect location. On the opposite side are Restaurants/Bars and a Bakery. Also, there's an organic Supermarket, Club and Movie Theater in short walking or driving distance making it very convenient. The Front Desk is most welcoming, talk about service with a smile. My last visit, I stayed in... More

We stayed here on January 18th - 24th, we love the Royal Palm, we tried to rent it every year, only this year we started out very up set, when we found out that Saturday there was no room for us. They accommodated us that night by sending us to the Belair Beach Hotel... When we returned the next day... More

My wife and 2 year old son visited Jan. 5-12 and it was our first time to the island. I initially chose this resort for the location and the ability to walk to many different things and also the quality of the beach. In this regard the resort doesn't dissapoint. We drove through out the island, French and Dutch side,... More

I stayed at the Royal Palm in November and I must say the staff and concierge, particularly Martin and Vincenzo at the front desk were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy, and the view of the bay was gorgeous. The hotel also is located quite near to many fine places to eat. I very much enjoyed... More

Was there over Xmas 2015. Had a fist floor 2bdm unit. Kitchen was fantastic - great appliances. 2 full bath. Great pool.

I stayed here with my buddy who owns a Diamond Resorts International timeshare. It was very close to the airport, which was quite useful since 2 of the 6 of us arrived one day later since they missed their flight. The 6 of us originally reserved a 3 bedroom suite. There wasn't a suite of that size available for the... More
