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

We have stayed at this resort 3 times now. When you get a 2 Bedroom 2 Bath Apartment with a full kitchen, dining room and living room with a large balconey for the price of a hotel room, You got a Great Deal, that's what we get by staying at the Royal Palm.

The apartments are big and with a fully equipped kitchen. They all have windows with sea view and a small balcony. There's a restaurant inside (good quality and variety), but bills can not be charged on the room account. Laundry machines and dryers available for free. The location is very convenient. On Welfare Road, close to restaurants and supermarkets. it's... More

We have stayed here before and love the location. The Royal Palm rooms are large, completely stocked with kitchen equipment and all face the water. It's beautiful getting up in the morning and looking out over the bay. There are many great restaurants across the road. We like to go to a beach, then come back to the resort pool... More
