Fun convenient hotel on the Dutch side of the island. Close to casinos, restaurants. It's an informal family friendly place. It's by the airport so you can stand by the fence at the end of the runway for added excitement. There is shopping within walking distance. The units have full kitchens and the beautiful pool overlooks the beach.

First time staying here. We were in rooms 4204/4205. Our rooms were very clean and had everything you needed. This resort is right next to the airport but for us was not a problem. The pool and beach areas are very nice and well maintained. Plenty of restaurants in the area so you could eat somewhere different everyday and all...

The Royal Islander was built in 1986...and literally hasn't been updated since. If Vintage '80s architecture, style, and ambiance is your thing, than this is the place for you. The entire property feels dated and old. Speaking of old, the overwhelming majority of guests (80%) are 65yo+ in age. There were a plethora of canes, walkers and wheelchairs throughout the...

Love this place have going for years, yes it needs to be updated but I'm always very comfortable here. Clean rooms and property always well maintained. Close to restarants and casino right across street. Watch planes land from beach.

We have two timeshares in this place and we LOVE it. We love the island, the food, the people, and the amazing views. We could change it up and go somewhere else, but we choose St. Martin EVERY SINGLE YEAR, and so it will be for a looooong time!

We are owners and once again returned for Week 9 to the Royal Islander La Plage. Again it was wonderful. The weather was not cooperative. For the first time in 10 years St Maarten saw rainy days. As in all St Maarten days, it is still is paradise. Particularly paradise when you are coming from snowy Central New York. This...

We were able to trade our timeshare to come here with Interval International, and we enjoyed our week at the beach. The resort is central to everything in the Maho district, and after a couple of days you get used to all the airplane noise. Our unit was one bedroom with a garden-level terrace, which was more than adequate for...

Took the daughters here for daughters 40th birthday. The travel girl at the desk was great. Planned 3 trips around island. First cab ride around island and stopped in Margot for lunch. Did snuba diving which the group enjoyed. Also went snorkeling on the Red Baron with the trurtles. Ate on boat. The food was excellent, all freshly made even...

We stayed in the penthouse. It's 3 bedrooms 3.5 bathrooms. All rooms here have beautiful views. We loved watching planes come in from our porch! Two things that need improvement. The pool is ice cold (although beautiful and new), the hot tub is lacking (it's seems like residential 4 person). The other negative are the rooms need major updating, they...

We exchanged here as we wanted a last minute and this resort was available. We actually own a couple weeks on the island at another RCI resort. Of course, we are comparing the resort to ours.... Firstly we got a basement room or I guess here, they call them ground level .... And we look out onto an over grown...
