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...

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.
