Where to stay? Royal Palm Beach Club, Oyster Bay or Divi?

Just wondering what would be the best resort to stay at for comfort/relaxation and exploring other parts of the island? Royal Palm Beach is in Simpson Bay, Oyster Bay is on Dawn beach, and Divi Little Bay is in Little Bay.

How do the hotels compare? which is closest to the French side?

Thank you

All are great resorts, so you can't go wrong. Oyster Bay is the closest to the French side.

Divi - close to Philipsburg and shopping. Lovely resort on it's own peninsula. Great beach and views.

Royal Palm is walking distance to many wonderful restaurants/bars and a couple of casinos. Nice not to have to drive at night. Not a great beach, but very pretty.

OBBR is kind of tucked out of the way. Nice location and what was once a very nice beach. Lovely views. A few dining options in the area.

Thank you for all the great advise! I think we'll go to St. Martin rather than Aruba and probably stay at the Divi Little Bay.
