My girlfriend and I went to the Royal Palms for a week in August. We were traveling within a group of seven people. It was near the beginning of the hurricane season. The first day, Tuesday, was gorgeous. The next two days were very windy due to hurricane Isaac passing nearby. My girlfriend and I are both interested in storms... More

Having never stayed in the Caribbean before, we were unsure about our accommodations. As it turned out, we needed no worry. We stayed on the Dutch side which was a bit like staying in an American city or even Hawaii as everyone on this side spoke English. The Royal Palm was easy to find, being only a short drive from...

Was here in april 2012. Exelent with the seperate bedrooms, and spacious rooms. Also liked the closeness of the supermarket and bakery up the street. Location is perfect :-) Not so good, no internett in rooms. But only bad thing was an extremly noisy aircondition unit. Made it hard to sleep. Hope that is fixed ahead of the next stay.

The four of us really enjoyed our week at Royal Palm Beach Resort. The suite was clean, comfortable, and attractive. The ocean view was unbeatable. Friendly and helpful staff. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the beach lounge chairs. The resort's Cabana restaurant has good food at reasonable prices, although the service can be slow. Other very good... More

From the time we stepped into the lobby of the Royal Palm Beach Resort, until we left, two weeks later, we were treated like visiting royalty. The desk people, especially Jesse James (yes. that's his real name) were more than helpful for all of our needs. The food in the restaurant is excellent, and priced reasonably. The service, however, is... More

This was my third stay in St. Maarten and the third resort I have stay at on Simpson Bay. I have stayed at the Pelican (now Simpson Bay Resort and Marina) and at The Atrium. This was the best resort out of all three. The rooms all have ocean view and you can slide open the window in the living... More

Had trouble deciding on either very good or excellent for a rating. View from balcony was definitely excellent, overlooking pool and Simpson Bay. Our room was very good, we had a couple of minor issues that were taken care of immediately. The location with access to several restaurants within walking distance is a nice benefit. Only needed to use the... More

Although this was a great resort, great location, and great amenities, we had cockroaches living in our kitchen area. There were dead ones in the coffee pot and live ones around our toaster, coffee maker, and stove. Management didn't offer us a new room, and assured us it was only our room. They can apologize until the cows come home,... More

We have stayed at several different locations on St. Martin and we love the island. Royal Palm Beach Resort works well for us since the rooms are spacious, beautiful, and offer a great view along with being in a very convenient location. Ample parking if you rent a car, jewelry store, souvenir shops, and liquor store on property. There is... More
