Had excellent view. Beautiful suite/Apartment. The resort is used as a timeshare. The service was awesome. Be aware you cannot purchase drinks at the swim up bar/bar based on your room. It's cash & credit card only. Beach is right outside your door. Such a beautiful relaxing view its hard to leave. Dining can be a bit expensive. Lots of... More

Really enjoyed stay, had a few problems with door lock but eventually sorted. Then a great holiday. Daily cocktails on a 2 4 1 basis is very enjoyable. As a Diamond resort it is very good. One down side were the mosquito' s taking bites! Long way to travel but worth the treck.

We have been there 6 times since 1996, the last time in 2013. Always a clean property and excellent staff. It also we'll centered between the Dutch and French sides. They have a great beach and pool. The pool bar is great.

Hard to meet any travelers who hadn't been to the island and that resort multiple times. Peak island season/rates are Oct- early April.Off season May thru Sept. Heard most businesses close... More

The location is pretty good, you can buy almost everything you need in the hotel or nearby. A lot of place to eat and have fun. Supermarket is nearby as well. The hotel has... More

Spent a week at Royal Palm. Location is perfect. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from within walking distance. The property is nice with a small pool and swim up bar. The beach is nice but not the best on the island. The water view pretty though with several boats to enjoy. We had a 2 bedroom unit which... More
