This resort is a great spot, apartments are roomy, great views, lots of restaurants around, and walking distance to many good places. Service is amazing, great funny staff, even if the check inn and out takes forever. But, do not attend the time share stuff they put on. It is a huge hoaks, the prices are ridiculous, and they say...

We stayed here for 2 days before our Windstar cruise, then for 3 days after the cruise. Reasonable price, nice, big unit with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and a big living room and balcony...it looks like all the rooms have an oceanfront view, we loved ours. Staff was great, we were able to check in a few hours early...

Good location on Welfare Road at Simpson Bay. 10-minute drive from the airport. Very close to lots of restaurants. Units were basic, bed was moderately comfortable. No washer / dryer in the apartment. Staff was friendly. Shops on-site were very useful for food and snacks.

We just returned from a fabulous week at the Royal Palm Beach Resort. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a two bedroom/two bath with all the amenities of home. The staff were polite and very helpful. The beach was wonderful as was the pool area. You can walk to many restaurants and shops from the Royal Palm;...

We stayed at Royal Palm in November for one night in route to the French Side. The check in was quick and pleasant, the room was immaculate and fully furnished with everything you would need for a month, the beds were great - I can't say enough good things about the place. We have always stayed in condos on the...

We travel to St. Maarten twice a year. We love that Royal Palm resort has an ocean view from every room, we have stayed here a couple of times and will be back here in march 2017 again and generally in the future rather than staying at other places. The staff are very helpful from the time you check in...

The Royal Palm Beach resort is a Diamond property (just sold to Apollo Holdings, we hear) in Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten. The hotel is literally ten minutes drive from Princess Juliana Airport. We really enjoyed our stay. The Royal Palm is big enough to have what you need, but small enough so that you don't feel like you are at...

Visited for two weeks, one of week was with additional family. Reserved a two bedroom unit. Resort is on a nice beach. We were on fifth floor, elevators were pretty easy to get.

Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. We are very happy to read you enjoyed your visit and appreciated all we have to offer. The restaurant is not under the resort's management thus running a tab isn't possible here. As you mentioned, our resort is in the perfect location close to lots of unique activities. We hope to...
