We recently stayed at our timeshare units at the Sint Maarten Sea Palace for the first time since the renovations. We were pleased to see the upgrades that have been accomplished, although we were disappointed not to have new furniture yet in our units. We are thrilled Erica Ventner is back as Activities Director and the staff both old and...

I had a 5th floor suite overlooking the beach. The furniture was new, lovely and comfortable. There were two bathrooms - both great, the bed was comfortable and there were several chest of drawers and good closet space. The kitchen was lovely with nice cooktop, oven and frig. The washer and dryer worked well. The suite had lots of space,...

We just got back from St. Martin. We couldn"t have been happier with our timeshare exchange. The suite was beautifully set up and spacious. The view was breathtaking and the workers were so friendly and helpful. We can"t wait to go back! We miss it already and just got home yesterday. One week is just not enough! Gianni and Carrie

We stayed at the sea palace resort right on the boardwalk in Phillipsburg. Our unit was beautiful with a full kitchen, large living room with two comfortable pull out sofas. Our unit had recently been redone. Gorgeous view of the boardwalk and harbor. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful especially Erica, our activities director. Go to the orientation on Sunday....

There is no pool - just a drop dead gorgeous beach in front of you. Lots of restaurants within walking distance down the boardwalk. Great shopping down Front Street which is a lovely walk. Units have everything you need and have been remodeled - some units are still awaiting new furniture which is to be complete in 2017.
