We stayed in a 3 Bedroom here and it was huge. There were six of us in total with each kids (under 6) and three adults. The resort itself does that offer a tremendous amount thus it would not be ideal for those who want to just stay on sight the whole time. The beach is nice with very calm,... More

We did a timeshare swap to stay one week at this resort. The 2 bedroom unit was quite large and had one of the best equipped kitchens we have seen in a timeshare unit anywhere. The pool is a bit small compared to newer resorts, but there is enough shade for those who want it in the chairs around the... More

The five of us used this resort as our base in St Maarten. Good location near many attractions and great restaurants. The two bedroom unit was spacious and clean. The things to note is that you will only have the unit cleaned mid-stay. For additional cost you can arrange maid service but really not necessary. A plus is that the... More

This resort is well located. It is really convenient to the airport and lots of great restaurants within walking distance. The staff is friendly and we especially appreciated Giovanni for all of his great tips on excursions. Many of the excursions were walking distance from the resort. The rooms are a bit dated but not enough to detract from the... More

Property is directly on Simpson Bay and offers full kitchen w/utensils in all units. With a good sized pool (very clean and well maintained) and beach bar/restaurant with reasonable prices in event you choose to not cook, I'll be back again! Friendly staff will accommodate your requests promptly should you need special attention. Close to the airport and 100's of... More

Royal Palm is in a perfect location! Opposite are some amazing food places and its almost central to everything.... Renting a car with a GPS is a great idea as you're able to move around the island...... The staff are super friendly and even helped me with a romantic idea for my fiance. Love this place and really wish I... More

I searched all over Simpson Bay for a hotel for our vacation. Reviews and website descriptions did not give an accurate picture. I considered Flamingo Bay Beach Resort and Simpson Bay Beach resort before deciding on the Royal Palm. Great decision! First, all the rooms (apartments, actually) are beach front. The resort has about 140 2 bedrooms units and very... More

My fiance' and I stayed here for a week in July 2016 after finding a good deal on Booking.com. We had a 2 bedroom condo that was spacious and had a full kitchen. Both the view from the living room and our bedroom faced Simpson Bay. The balcony was outside of our bedroom but you could access it from the... More
