Walking distance to many of the best restaurants and shops! Most fun is watching all the planes landing from your beach chair! Water is beautiful and very relaxing. I always look forward to my next trip here! Immediate de-stressing!!!

This is a timeshare so when booking here you shouldn't expect hotel type services. I have owned 3 timeshares and this experience was atypical. Unfortunately the pool was closed but the beach was perfect & I wouldn't have used the pool anyway! Check in was great with a complimentary rum punch!!! The fantastic staff at the tour desk was a...

Very helpful and friendly staff, with a great apartment. It has a kitchenette with all required utensils, crockery and cutlery. Very spacious and a kingsize bed with on-suite. Also a lounge area and balcony. Location is spot on as it is easy to get to all areas of the island with no fuss. Best apartments are those that are sea... More

We arrived on a Sat. and as usual, had to wait for our room to be ready. We enjoyed spending that waiting time at Tortuga bar, visiting with Omaira. We also met many new friends there that we would see during the week. Our room was lovely. On the sixth floor...dead center of the resort. Couldn't beat the view. 2... More

After a long travel day we arrived to an extremely unfriendly receptionist who set the trip off to a negative start. W then learned that the main pool was closing the next day for renovations (which they claimed would take a week but we're still underway when we left). The rooms are equivalent to a day's in motel, average at... More

This resort is close to everything. Beach, pool, bars & restaurants. Very clean & friendly employees. Look forward to going back. Food at pool bar was delicious. I had a pool/ocean view. Was wonderful to wake up every morning and sit on balcony and enjoy it all. The employees seem to know you by first name by the second day.... More

The Royal Islander is well located in the Maho area. The property is 5 minutes from the airport if there is traffic. Great breach and perfect for plane spotting. My family has come here for years and we always have a good time. In Maho, there is a bit of everything...shopping, clubs, restaurants, a casino, sun and surf. There are... More

This is our first time staying in Maho, and we really like it. The planes land right next door (literally), but it's not much of a bother. The beach is nice, as is the pool area. The rooms are also nice, although our air conditioning was a bit hard to control. And a toaster would have been more convenient than... More

Love this place!! - only thing needed is a dehumidifier in the room. Other than that service, cleanliness and convenience to everything was superb! Grocery, restaurants, beach, pool and casino all right there, Just bring bags for your groceries or you have to pay for bags.
