Our stay at the Royal Islander was also our first visit to St Maarten...the resort is located on Maho Bay and you will read comments from others about its proximity to the approach path for Queen Juliana airport...whether you think that's a plus or minus is a matter of personal taste...as a private pilot and life-long aviation enthusiast, it just added to the scenery--others may disagree...but the air traffic was not constant and most of the large a/c from Europe arrived and departed during certain times of the week...so it's not like being situated next to LAX or JFK...we found the resort to be very clean and comfortable...spacious bathroom and friendly staff....it is convenient (i.e., walking distance) to several shops, restaurants and a casino and we had access to an enclosed parking garage for our rental SUV...great pool (and pool bar)...the beach was wonderful and there is a small reef not too far out that made for some enjoyable snorkeling....all in all, a relaxing, comfortable resort and we would definitely consider staying there during a future visit.....
