We had an excellent time here as the beach was quite private and we we able to walk about the area safely and enjoy the wonderful restaurants and shops. Service was great and we never had any issues. The rooms were quiet and clean. This was an excellent experience.

We stayed 9 nights and this is not a hotel/resort, it is a time share. We had to change rooms after 3 days ( we did not know when we reserved) as they did not have a room available for all days. Hotel is very old, swimming pool small, restaurant small and with pricy an very average food. Few beach... More

We only stayed here one night while waiting to head to a condo we rented. Our room was great - I had booked a one bedroom suite with pullout couch but they upgraded us without having to ask to a 2 bedroom ocean view. The location is great - Simpson Bay has everything you need and is close to both... More

A friend of the family is a member at Royal Palm and gave us a week's stay. The place is great. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and modern, and the location on Simpson Bay near the airport, casinos, and restaurants, is really convenient. They have a nice pool area and bar. The health club... More

We had a flight cancellation and had to get a hotel room at the last minute. Maybe I should've searched a little harder, but it was late and we were tired. Room with the taxes ended up being over $400 which was a bit steep. If you were using both bedrooms and booked for a week I expect it would... More

Traveling with the wife and a 2yo, we stumbled into this hotel by luck. Check in very easy and fast, we had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo, which was very clean. Full kitchen very well stocked. For the first day of our stay we were using taxis, which run for 15us$, then one member of the staff suggested buses... More

We were very happy that we chose the Royal Palm Resort. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked. Pool towels provided. The staff was more than friendly - every person we spoke with was eager to help make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The pool area was excellent with the Cabana bar and restaurant being a perfect compliment.... More

Excellent place to stay on the island and every single room has an ocean view! It's close to airport, grocery store, restaurants yet has a private beach which is beautifully maintained. Parking is free and plentiful. Staff are incredibly welcoming and treat every guest in a warm, professional manner. You never feel like you are the tenth person of the... More

Rooms need updating but are well kept. Location is fantastic with many great restaurants within walking distance. Staff is friendly & helpful. Located right next to the bridge... can view the yachts and sailboats passing through several times each day.

Overall a good choice. Pool water was warm, clean. Beach is really, really nice-had a massage on the beach. Some low key vendors there, too. Chairs and umbrellas set up. Quiet, private. No area to really snorkel there. The sister hotel, The Flamingo, has a different (we thought) nicer beach/pool area that can be accessed via shuttle. Our room was... More
