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

We came here with our daughter - room immaculate (again)- the front desk is fantastic - this time Vinnie stood out as he assisted with our dinner reservations with speed and got us a great restaurant This is my first second and third choice when staying here The "bar" is not too good - plan on going out

We were booked at the Flamingo Beach Resort at Simpson Bay for the week of Jan.18-25, 2014, booking through Tonya Williams, at dreamtravelinc@yahoo.com, who was booking Terry Laughren's timeshare week for him. We arrived early afternoon only to be told by the Flamingo there was no reservation in our name! At 10 PM, we were still trying to get our... More

Second year coming here. The staff is lovely, location is amazing (very convenient). The rooms are situated so that all have a Simpson Bay view out the huge all glass front windows and a view of the mega Yachts out your back door. Big thumbs up to the front desk staff, so sweet and attentive. Housekeeping ladies were so sweet... More

Stayed at this resort in December and enjoyed it immensely. We booked a 2 bedroom condo which had way too much space for only two people. The full kitchen has every appliance and utensil imaginable. We prepared meals comfortably as if we were at home. The grounds are beautiful. Our room was on the ground floor and so we could... More

Flew Sunwing direct from Toronto Jan 19 and returned Jan 26. Decent flight that took just over 4 hours. Loved the 7 minute, $5/person taxi ride from the SXM airport to our beautiful home for a week. This was our first time renting a "timeshare condo" rather than an all-inclusive week stay. Not sure what we prefer at this time... More

With a small glitch to start off our week, the rest was pure bliss! Friendly staff, good location to some great resturants. FYI, cab is 5.00pp. from the airport. Make sure you stop in to see Elvis @ Toppers. Good fun. Another great food choice, maybe for lunch, is the small shack in the corner of the parking lot next... More

We just came back from three weeks at the Royal Palm. The staff is the best. They will do whatever they can to make you happy. From the front desk to the housekeeping staff. Free washer and dryers and free wifi makes life easy. The location is very central and easy to get anywhere. The rooms are fine but I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Royal Palm the week before Thanksgiving. This was my first island experience and my boyfriends second, including Hawaii. According to him the atmosphere is way better on St. Maarten then in Hawaii. Upon arrival to the resort, we are greeted with friendly staff. They originally put us in a ground floor room, when I...
