Two couples stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit # 8126 owned by Van Nueman; see VBO for unit info. The unit was on the south side, 1st floor walkout to the beach. What a great unit Van has. I highly recommend contacting Van as the unit is in great condition at favorable rates. It has all the amenities you want or need. The Royal Palm is centrally located in Simpson bay and you can easily walk to restaurants, bakery, market and bars. I always get a car though as we love to travel the island.
Back to the resort. The beach is great for wading and swimming as there are little to no waves in the protected cove. Stay on the south side of the beach as the north side has large sharp rocks and seaweed. The public lot on the very end of the south side attracts people to visit for a quick dip and also attracts lovers for evening make-out sessions.
The Cabana restaurant at the Royal is not owed by the resort. We only had lunch there but it was very good with reasonable prices. The bar served us drinks in thin plastic disposable cups and that kind of turned me off to drinking at the beach bar.
Overall I think you will have a great time if you stay at this resort.
