This place costs a fortune for the motel feel you get! The pictures online do not show the actual room you reserve! The entire decor is from the 1970's (not vintage VERY outdated). The sofa, in the seating area, felt like it lived that long. If you want a cheap looking place and do not care where you stay then... More

If you are looking for the best place to watch the airplanes this is your place! No better location. We had a great view from our balcony. The lookout point at the pool is great. So fun to watch them at Maho beach too. Within walking to many restaurants, shops and nightlife. Bus stops right out front. Clean. Pretty garden.... More

I'm amazed there are any good reviews of this place. It took the staff 4 days to respond to my email inquiry... 2 days AFTER I arrived. Upon arrival, I had to lug my own suitcases to the room. The room is sorely outdated... Thankfully, the bed is comfortable. I don't mind the noise from the planes so much, but... More

Newer addition to sister resort, La Plage across the street which has beach access. Had access to both resorts. Rooms are nice. Great view of the airport runway and beach to watch people on beach being blown away from jet blasts. It's the thing to do. Really nice pool. Since everyone is at the beach, it tends to be private.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our week here and couldn't really find fault with it. Great location near to the airport and great views of the planes coming in. Room was spacious and terrace overlooking the airport was nice. The only one niggle (and it was only a niggle) was that certain reception staff could've been friendlier and more helpful. Also, check your... More

The grounds at this hotel are lovely...beautiful plantings, a fabulous pool, all constantly cared for. I love the sand and the palm trees surrounding the pool. The adjoining beach is refreshing, with gentle waves. The poolside bar was also very nice. The rooms are very beachy and comfortable with all you would need if you wanted to stay in for... More

Difficult to trade into this place if you are not an owner but I got lucky. Starting with Cynthia and Shirelle on the front desk, you know you are in a friendly place. Have been there before and loved it. Rooms furnished better than other time share resorts. Full appliances that all worked perfectly. Nicely decorated. You can get major... More

The resort is beautiful, however, having stayed in Simpson Bay, I would be remiss if I did not say for the size of this resort, there is no Wi-Fi, unless you pay $50/week, no computer available for the guests and it is so very noisy with the airport on the side and all the partying going on around the area....

This is primarily a timeshare resort, having studios to 2 bedroom units, either with RCI or directly with the Royal Islander Club, which also operates La Plage across the street, located on Maho Beach. Some units have been purchased outright & have full ownership by individuals. Rentals by the week or month are available from timeshare holders who are not... More

I rented (from the owner - not timeshare) a 1 bedroom suite at this location. The accommodation was great and the owner was beyond excellent. The location of this rental is perfect. There are restaurants, pubs and everything you require within walking distance - directly out the front door - including a grocery/market where you can purchase everything you need... More
