Physically La plate is maintained and in better conditions than some places I've been too. The location has some pluses and minuses. + on the beach+ easy to get to + great pool -noisy (and not for the reasons you might think) - some things don't work as well as they could. The most obvious downside is the noise at... More

When planning this vacation, I wrote to them and had the pleasure of emailing back and forth with Lucy...what a gem she is, prompt in returning emails and very eager to please. Since it is a RCI exchange, she could not assure us of our room but wow what a room we got. We overlooked the pool and Maho Bay... More

Location, location, location! 5 min. away from airport so no need to arrange transportation. Royal Islander is literally steps away. Beach, restaurants, club, bars, casino, ATM, Supermarket, stores, even a SPA. You also have public transportation available($1.50 a ride), which is great because you are only 10 min. away from Simpson's Bay. Rooms are great, very spacious, kitchen nicely equipped,... More

I've stayed at the Royal Islander La Plage several times now and have NEVER been disappointed in the place. It's a great place and right in the heart of everything in the Maho area. You won't be disappointed.
