The rooms have no Internet capability. If you go to a store called Scarlett which is about 3 minute car ride, you can rent a hotspot for a week for $65.00. This will give you the ability to connect multiple wireless devices to the hot spot. They also have wireless routers if you only want to connect a lap top... More

Stayed at the resort with my best friend, my daughter, and my young adult cousin whose college graduation we were celebrating. Had a two bedroom on the 4th floor. As often mentioned, the view was breathtaking. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We did an ATV tour, horseback riding, and H20 helmet dive experience which the girls determined to... More

Whoever thought gave this hotel less than 3 stars are crazy! if you are expecting a nice clean hotel with all the necessities you need, then this is the place for you.. You don't get the everyday room service you would get at a five star such as maids coming to clean everyday, but that was OK with me. Upon... More

Just returned from a 7 night stay and really enjoyed the Royal Palm. We read many of the Tripadvisor reviews on the Royal Palm so we knew exactly what to expect and what not to expect. The views from the rooms are awesome (beach, harbor, mountains and houses dotted on the hills). We asked for a room on high floor... More

Just got back today from a week at the Royal Palm Beach Resort. We stayed in 526 and loved the view! All the rooms are ocean front but the best views are from higher up. Upon check in I mentioned to a member of the staff that my husband and I were celebrating our 35th anniversary. Within an hour of... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Palm Beach Resort. It was clean, friendly and had wonderful pool, restaurant and glorious beach right on site. We would definitely stay again and definitely return to St. Maarten. Wow!

If you like to be at the center of activity, this is a great place to stay. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance. No need to spend $400 to rent a car for a week. We went to 3 other beaches and liked the one at Royal Palm the most. Room was large and the furnishings were nice. Appliances... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Royal Palm. The resort has very nice, spacious rooms and extremely friendly staff. We stayed on the 5th floor and had a great view. The resort's beach is very calm and is perfect for snorkeling. If you snorkel out by the tip of the rocks, you will see all kinds... More

I stayed here during a family vacation during April 2012. The hotel location itself was excellent; the hotel was beachfront on Simpson Bay, with the beach itself being surprisingly uncrowded. The hotel was also literally across the street from several restaurants and a 2 minute walk to a large grocery store. The food from the poolside restaurant was also delicious... More

This is a very nice resort: great location, large rooms with full kitchen, nice furnishings, comfortable beds with nice bedding, many amenities, professional and courteous staff. The beaches are close and clean. The pool is a good size and clean with a large lounge area equipped with enough lounge chairs. The balconies provide wonderful views. So many restaurants with excellent... More
