This is the second year we stayed at Royal Palms. The location is great - close to the airport, restaurants/nightlife, and a great beach. The rooms are all very nice, and the service is great. Our air conditioning went out one day, and they had it fixed in no time. They maintain the property well - they're always painting outside,...

Our stay at the Royal Palm Beach Resort was really outstanding. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and maintenance issues were addressed quickly. Our accomodations weere large, and well appointed. The location was outstanding. We could see the pool, and Simpson Bay from our balcony. The beach area was the best I saw on the island. Not crowded, and...

We have been going to the Royal Palm for 10 years and we are never disappointed. Unlike their sister resort, all rooms faced out to the ocean. No "bad" rooms. The staff is works very hard to satisfy their guests.We usually request a 1st floor unit and have always gotten it. This year, because we were not there for a...

My two sisters and I stayed at the Royal Palm for the first time Jan 8-14 and enjoyed our experience tremendously. In the past we have stayed at the Wyndham Sapphire closer to the French side of the island but their rates were too high when we called to reserve in early November. There are definitely pros and cons to...

We just returned from our 8th trip to the Royal Palm. Each year it gets better. They have done a wonderful job with maintenance over the last year. There are lots of outlets for charging electronics. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit and it was sparkling clean. Since we stayed for 2 weeks, the maid came a few times....

The Royal Palms is great resort with wonderful and caring employees. The only problem is that management does not enforce the rules about reserving chairs and huts on the beach and pool. At 0630 Hrs.today, 1/27/15, people are out on the beach placing their towels and bags on chairs and then leaving. Today at 1000 Hrs. most of these chairs...

I absolutely love Royal Palm Beach Resort and it's situated in the perfect location. On the opposite side are Restaurants/Bars and a Bakery. Also, there's an organic Supermarket, Club and Movie Theater in short walking or driving distance making it very convenient. The Front Desk is most welcoming, talk about service with a smile. My last visit, I stayed in...
