Stayed here through our timeshare exchange. Asked for a 4th or 5th floor unit per other Tripadvisor reviews, and were welcomed with a fifth floor end unit! Spectacular view! Staff was helpful and friendly as well. Definitely recommended.

Beside the fact that the Royal Palm is comfortable and attractive, it is also near a LOT of restaurants and things to do. We found the staff to be tremendously helpful, even able to recommend the best places to eat. There are literally dozens of restaurants within walking distance to the resort, and the resort has a great restaurant too!... More

We booked our stay in a 2 bedroom unit using Diamond points. The room was clean and roomy and we had a great view (I uploaded photos). The room included a full kitchen but no washer/dryer. We got tokens (free of charge) from the front desk to use in a laundry room on our floor. We were on the ground... More

I don't think reviewers brag enough about this hotel/timeshare - it has a lot going for it. LOCATION -- PLUS! It's not far from Princess Juliana airport but you won't hear planes. A taxi will cost ~$5-6 per person plus a buck per suitcase. ROOM -- PLUS! Since it's a timeshare, the rooms are apartments. Our 2 bedroom with full... More

It was our first time visiting St Maarten in about 15 years and that was a short stay. This was a terrific place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by lovely staff at the front desk. Vincenza and Jamie were exceptional. The rest of the hotel staff could not be friendlier and more helpful. The two bedroom... More

This is a very nice hotel. The views were beautiful! We followed everyone's advice and got a room close to the bridge on the second floor. It was away from the noise of the bar/pool area and the HUGE free concert on the beach held next door. ( that lasted until 1am!)

We've stayed in St Martin-Marteen many times before but this was our first time right in Simpson Bay. The room was Spacious & beautiful. Immaculate, with a view to die for. We stayed here for 2 weeks From July 20 to August 3rd, in a 2-bedroom corner unit. We had a conrer unit so it was a little bigger than... More

We've stayed in SXM many times before but this was our first time right in Simpson Bay. If you are looking for a nice sized condo in a good location, this is it! The beds are great quality. The kitchen is well appointed with good quality appliances and was immaculate. These are not five star accommodations but they are well... More
