I stayed for a week with my mother and 2 friends in a 2 bedroom suite. Gave my mom one room, my married couple friends the other room, and I took the pull out sofa bed, which was just fine by my standards. The resort is very beautiful, and the rooms look exactly as they appear on their website. The... More

My husband and I just returned from a 5 day trip to St. Maarten and the Royal Palm Beach Resort. We were given a 2 BR on the 3rd floor and were happy with everything. They do need a few cosmetic touch-ups but overall, it was perfect for what we were looking for....location, view, comfort, convenience. We walked to lunch... More

This was a time share exchange. The facility needs some physical updating. However, location, staff and facilities were well put together to create a memorable week. The staff were excellent both personally and professionally. The kitchen was well stocked; the layout of our living area was functional and efficient. Every room has a view of the Caribbean and a patio.

We used a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom timeshare rental. It was great. A full sized kitchen allowed us to cook any meals we desired. Kitchen is fully stocked with all that you need. Having immediate beach access was great. Nice staff as well.

The views are amazing, the room itself was updated and very clean. Fully equipped kitchen, eating area, living area, 2 bedrooms, two washrooms. And yes, oceanfront.... More

The Royal Palm Resort is situated in the best area for a vacation. There is the beach, the view of the airport and some of the other hotels. Shopping for food and clothes are in walking distance talk about Places to eat they are there. High end and low ends whatever pleases you.
