#2 of 7 hotels in Orient Bay
Palm Court is situated in Orient Bay, just two minutes walk from the beach and all local amenities. Orient Beach is on the windward side of the island, so the hotel is blessed with the cooling Caribbean trade winds for most of the year. The breeze not only keeps the temperatures comfortable, but also provides ideal conditions for watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing.

check-in office hours are restricted, but a quick phone at the door and you are directed to our room. the room itself is FABULOUS, spacious, clean, comfy, quiet, good A/C, with balcony/patio (has a table w/ 2 chairs and one sun lounger). B/R is superb, clean, spacious, with shampoo, body lotion, shower cap, hair dryer (no conditioner). BTW: no hot water in the stand up shower, so enjoy some cold-showers. Kitchenette has a MW, coffeemaker and tea kettle and mini fridge (no tea/coffee supplies). the blinds aren't quit sun blocking so bring eye-shades. the included BF is a whole bunch of small bites (small bowl of fruit, yoghurt, muesli, coffee and tea, breads/croissants, jam and honey, fruit juice) and for extra charge of 6-8 euro can get scrambled eggs/ pancakes or mushroom onion omelet if you want to order separately. the property gives you access to free sunbeams at the local orient bay beach at 2 outfits (Bikini Beach and Waikiki beach club) which saves you about 20 euro. for the price we paid per night I think this place hits it out of the ball park, its a 3* property but more than adequate for comfortable sleeping and showering, a bit above average than 'basic' or 'no frills'. I'd recommend it bc the price is unbeatable for the level of cleanliness and comfort. the location is superb, walkable to the fabulous night dining area of Orient Village and all the orient bay beach clubs. supermarket close by! Highly recommended.

Feels like home. Nobody better than Anne the manager. Great location. Gated entrance. Free breakfast. Nice clean rooms. Easy walk to beach or restaurants. Anne goes above and beyond to put it mildly. Can’t wait to get back. All rooms overlook pool. Tremendous value

Thank you for a splendid 14 days at your fantskisk hotel. Palm Court is I will say a Condo not a Hotel, but that is perfect. New renovated with separate WC, and very large bathroom. The bed is very large and comfor. AIl the apartments have view over the pool and it is 3 floor. Anne and her staff is very kindli and always at your servent. And the try alvays do the best for you. The rooms rate is include breakfast, whish are simly but very good. Pool is open 24/7 and is refresshing after a long evening. Palm Court is locat in a quiet area approximately 4min walk from the beach. There is grocery half way to the beach. I promise we will be back. ATM is 5 km away, and you need a car. But all places take card. And don't forget, this is an island and all need to transportation with boat or fly. So something is expensive.

Tried staying here three years ago, but along came Hurricane Irma and washed away those plans. So, my wife and I were excited about the re-opening of this property and our planned stay for four nights on French St. Martin. This is a lovely little boutique hotel located in the Orient Bay area. It has just 21 rooms, but the rooms are good size and provide many amenities (kitchenette, outdoor deck or patio, king bed, etc.). The location of Palm Court is outstanding. It is literally a five minute walk to Orient Beach, with Bikini Beach Bar & Restaurant right there. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided at no additional cost on Bikini Beach for those staying at Palm Court (though choice of chairs is restricted to the second and third rows). Palm Court provides a complimentary breakfast daily from 7 to 10 a.m., though cooked items (eggs, pancakes, etc.) do bring in an additional charge. Bottled water is also provided to guest, something that can be important given the recent public water issues being experienced in the Orient Bay area. These issues have been fixed for the time being so further problems may not arise. This is a gated property for the safety conscious out there, and you will need to use a code to get in and out of the grounds when coming-and-going. A number of fine restaurants are within walking distance in nearby Orient Village, as well as the many beach bars and restaurants that have returned to Orient Beach. The positives far outweigh the negatives, but a few things do need to be mentioned. The room air conditioner was too noisy, so ear plugs are recommended. And, the satellite TV systems in the room are the most unpredictable, temperamental that I have ever experienced. But, this only matters if you intend to watch some TV on a rainy day. Overall, this is a wonderful little hotel with a fantastic location and a very nice hotel manager named Anne Jacques. It is worth noting that this hotel has no elevator, so if you have issues going up-and-down stairs insist on a first floor room.
