#2 of 7 hotels in Orient Bay
Palm Court is situated in Orient Bay, just two minutes walk from the beach and all local amenities. Orient Beach is on the windward side of the island, so the hotel is blessed with the cooling Caribbean trade winds for most of the year. The breeze not only keeps the temperatures comfortable, but also provides ideal conditions for watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Thank you for a splendid 14 days at your fantskisk hotel. Palm Court is I will say a Condo not a Hotel, but that is perfect. New renovated with separate WC, and very large bathroom. The bed is very large and comfor. AIl the apartments have view over the pool and it is 3 floor. Anne and her staff is very kindli and always at your servent. And the try alvays do the best for you. The rooms rate is include breakfast, whish are simly but very good. Pool is open 24/7 and is refresshing after a long evening. Palm Court is locat in a quiet area approximately 4min walk from the beach. There is grocery half way to the beach. I promise we will be back. ATM is 5 km away, and you need a car. But all places take card. And don't forget, this is an island and all need to transportation with boat or fly. So something is expensive.

Tried staying here three years ago, but along came Hurricane Irma and washed away those plans. So, my wife and I were excited about the re-opening of this property and our planned stay for four nights on French St. Martin. This is a lovely little boutique hotel located in the Orient Bay area. It has just 21 rooms, but the rooms are good size and provide many amenities (kitchenette, outdoor deck or patio, king bed, etc.). The location of Palm Court is outstanding. It is literally a five minute walk to Orient Beach, with Bikini Beach Bar & Restaurant right there. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided at no additional cost on Bikini Beach for those staying at Palm Court (though choice of chairs is restricted to the second and third rows). Palm Court provides a complimentary breakfast daily from 7 to 10 a.m., though cooked items (eggs, pancakes, etc.) do bring in an additional charge. Bottled water is also provided to guest, something that can be important given the recent public water issues being experienced in the Orient Bay area. These issues have been fixed for the time being so further problems may not arise. This is a gated property for the safety conscious out there, and you will need to use a code to get in and out of the grounds when coming-and-going. A number of fine restaurants are within walking distance in nearby Orient Village, as well as the many beach bars and restaurants that have returned to Orient Beach. The positives far outweigh the negatives, but a few things do need to be mentioned. The room air conditioner was too noisy, so ear plugs are recommended. And, the satellite TV systems in the room are the most unpredictable, temperamental that I have ever experienced. But, this only matters if you intend to watch some TV on a rainy day. Overall, this is a wonderful little hotel with a fantastic location and a very nice hotel manager named Anne Jacques. It is worth noting that this hotel has no elevator, so if you have issues going up-and-down stairs insist on a first floor room.

Completely remodeled since the latest hurricane, Palm Court remains a most excellent venue for a St. Martin getaway. On the French side, just a short block from Orient Beach (you can hear the waves from your room), the stay includes beach chairs and an umbrella for all guests. A bountiful continental breakfast by the pool is included, and for $6 extra, you can get eggs, bacon, hash browns or pancakes. If you get tired of the Beach, lounge chairs by the pool are an excellent alternative. One block from Orient Village, with gourmet restaurants, a small grocery and other food choices. The manager, Anne Jacques, will make sure your every wish is taken care of. All 28 rooms are identical, so you only have to choose first floor (walk out directly to the grounds and pool), or second/third floor (balconies).

My wife and I were there for five nights at the Palm Court. We have vacationed in this area before, about ten years ago. The area has certainly grown, despite the setback from the hurricane four years ago (hardly noticeable in this area). The hotel room was wide and deep. All rooms have commodious balconies with sufficient furniture for lounging or dining. The beds are comfortable. There is a sofa and coffee table and good desk for working. Wifi is excellent. We used the kitchenette to make a number of meals and it was just fine. Stove, sink, microwave, coffee maker, and good plates, flatware and a corkscrew. Bring your own knife if you are going to cook. The bathroom is well laid out. Separate WC which is great. The hotel is quiet and amiable. Staff is fabulous. Anne knows how to do this. Breakfast is good with many more choices available a la carte. Coffee could be better but that is about the only thing that might want improving. A great value. So close to shops, restaurants and the beach. Literally three minute walk to the beach. There is no hotel with the same proximity to all this. The grocery store two minutes away is a French Casino. It is superb and has everything.
