Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is our 7th year here. We have come with friends, family get togethers and now our grandson is coming this year. We come back because we are so well taken care of. The apartments are very well maintained as are the gardens and pool. Mary,Tracy and Maribelle make us feel like friends . The beaches are within two minutes and are tome of the best in the world. The island has some great restaurants for lunch or evening.

We have visited Anguilla almost every year since 1985. What began as two week vacations became two and a half month holidays since we discovered "our jewel" Royal Palms.
The Busbys are a lovely family, most highly thought of throughout the Island.Tracy,a very successful construction contractor and his wife Mary, love Royal Palms. Their focus on their creation, six up to date holiday resort apartments, makes Royal Palms a heavenly destination for their guests, many of whom are repeaters.
Spectacular views of the Caribbean, Sint Maarten and the unique swimming pool, surrounded by manicured gardens plus comfortable, spacious, tastefully furnished accomodations, ideally located close to the best beaches and restaurants are not all that there is to Royal Palms. The building itself is gorgeous. The guests, of all ages, are dear, warm and respectful of privacy. The Busbys and their staff are most welcoming and ever mindful of one's every comfort.
We feel a warm glow each time that our thoughts turn to our home away from home, Royal Palms. We eagerly look forward to our ninth visit there in January.

My husband & I have been visiting Anguilla for over 30 yrs. When the hotel we stayed at closed 5 yrs ago we discovered Royal Palms. The Busby's & entire staff keep the unit & grounds immaculate. They are constantly updating & improving things & go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. We would not stay any other place in Anguilla. You can't go wrong.

For 11 years, now, my wife and I have spent a few weeks at Royal Palms, more recently with visits by family, including grand-children.
The fact that we return annually says it all. Mary, Tracy, their family and Maribel make us so very welcome and there is almost nothing that they cannot do for you. The apartments are spacious, spotless and comfortable. The garden and pool are lovely, and the location is so convenient for the best beaches and eating on the island. We hope to be able to return to to this ideal getaway for years to come.
The island is a desireable locale in any season

That is the tag line for Anguilla and Royal Palms is the best kept secret on the island! This relaxing, family owned, six unit apartment setting is a home away from home. Royal Palms sits on a hillside overlooking beautiful Rendezvous Bay beach and St. Martin.The Busbys cannot do enough to assure that your stay will be a happy one. Rooms are simply furnished, but adequate. You can dine in or go out to many fine restaurants on the island. Rent a car to enjoy any of the 32+ public beaches (one is more beautiful than the next), and return to sleep soundly amid the soft Caribbean breezes. Our best recommendation is that we have returned to lovely Royal Palms for the past five winters.

We have been going to Anguilla for 15 years and have stayed at numerous places on the island. ROYAL PALMS is by far the best. Excellent location, friendly and helpful owners and staff. We will be returning at Christmas with our 3 children and I know they will have a great time.

Room Tip: reserve early

We have been coming to Anguilla for 21 years. We spent three weeks at Royal Palms this March. We could have not been more welcomed than we were there. The owners are terrific, Marybelle, the housekeeper was wonderful. Whatever we needed was provided with grace. The apartment was clean and well maintained.

The bottom line is that we are booked in again next year !! Need I say more ?
