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

This was our second stay at the Royal Palm and could not have been more pleased. We rent a unit via VRBO (Unit 8123) directly from the owner. The unit is right on the beach and it is perfectly situated right near the best part of the beach. The hotel is well staffed and everyone was super friendly as we... More

We stayed here from April 26th to May 3rd, and right from check-in we had a great experience. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and was able to place us into our beautiful 2 bedroom suite right away. even though we were there an hour before listed check-in time. Also we had only booked a one bedroom,... More

Pros Nice rooms more like condos, clean and renovated Restaurants in walking distance and two are excellent - Greenhouse and Skip Jacks. Free laundry on site, convenience store... More

I honestly don’t know what happened to the people that gave this resort a negative review. Yes the WiFi was pretty spotty in the room but had no problem in and around the pool and bar. We stayed for 7 days May 2 – May 9th. 3 Couples, age ranging 38 – 49. We got to St. Maarten around noon.... More

This was our third time visiting, and we keep coming back. We stayed for a week and had one of the two bedroom suites. All of the suites at this location are designed so one side overlooks the ocean (Simpson Bay) while the other side looks over the boats moored at Simpson Lagoon. From the check in until the check...

This resort has everything I want in a vacation. Great condo, ocean view all rooms, great beach, restaurant and bar on site, (the swim up bar if a plus too!), mini mart to buy fresh croissants every morning. I could go on and on. I love this place and would like to come back here every year if I could!!!!
