We purchased our hotel stay through easyclicktravel.com which had this hotel cheaper than all the other travel sites. We booked a studio but when we arrived I was very friendly with the staff and was given a complimentary upgrade to a two bedroom. The room was gorgeous. We stayed on the 4th floor, had a great balcony with views of... More

We have stayed here 4 times and we love it for many reasons! The location is perfect and the views are awesome! We always get a room on the 2nd floor and the entire wall facing the water is a window that slides open. Amazing place. The pools are super. The entire facility is clean and well maintained. You can't... More

I want to start by saying the staff here is amazing. They are helpful and friendly. If you need anything, just ask and they do their best to accommodate. The resort has a swim up bar/pool, and a semi private beach. It was Halloween, and my fr year old som was one of abut ten children staying there. The activities... More

We had such a good time at this resort in May that we decided to return in October. We were pleased to have received a top floor room all the way at the end so that the view was spectacular. That being said, we were more vulnerable to Tropical Storm Rafael and a bit of water got into the room.... More

I loved this hotel!!! The staff was extremely nice when we checked in & it was so close to the airport. We went to our rooms where we saw the beautiful view & all of the accommodations. We had a full kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a large comfortable balcony. The beach was immaculate and the water was so... More

Stayed here 10/18-21. First let me say this. Even 5-star resorts get complaints. people like to complain. I read thru each review here before I left and I have to say... So what. This place is great and has everything you need and most of what you want. Car rental on site. Walk to a lot. Taxi to other stuff.... More

Our family has been traveling to St Maarten for the past 10 yrs. Every yr we spend 4 to 6 weeks at Royal Palm Resort. We have been so fortunate to always stay in a ground floor unit.

My family and I love St Maarten. We stay on the dutch side and each year rent a car so we can enjoy everything about the island. We take day trips to St Barts and Isle Pinel. This is a great island for a family vacation and this hotel is a great place to stay

Good location, pretty central to all the major sights and very close to the airport. The condos were quite spacious, comfortable and well designed. Front desk was helpful and accommodating! The beach behind the resort was ok but had too much grass and large rocks in the swimming area. Plenty of grocery store options all around which made shopping and... More

We just returned from our trip to St. Maarten last night (2 adults & 12 yr. old). We are owners here who haven't been to the resort in 10 years & were shocked to find Simpson Bay completely changed. The area is so builit up with restaurants (a good thing!) and stores but unfortunately a ton of traffic. Construction going... More
