We stayed at Royal Palm in November for one night in route to the French Side. The check in was quick and pleasant, the room was immaculate and fully furnished with everything you would need for a month, the beds were great - I can't say enough good things about the place. We have always stayed in condos on the... More

The Royal Palm Beach Resort is located in Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten. We are owners at this resort and visit regularly. The rooms are spacious, all have a water view and all amenities a visitor would ever need. The kitchen is fully stocked, towels are plenty, beds are comfortable and the warmth of the island makes the vacation an awesome... More

We travel to St. Maarten twice a year. We love that Royal Palm resort has an ocean view from every room, we have stayed here a couple of times and will be back here in march 2017 again and generally in the future rather than staying at other places. The staff are very helpful from the time you check in... More

The Royal Palm Beach resort is a Diamond property (just sold to Apollo Holdings, we hear) in Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten. The hotel is literally ten minutes drive from Princess Juliana Airport. We really enjoyed our stay. The Royal Palm is big enough to have what you need, but small enough so that you don't feel like you are at... More

Visited for two weeks, one of week was with additional family. Reserved a two bedroom unit. Resort is on a nice beach. We were on fifth floor, elevators were pretty easy to get. Restaurant does not allow you to put meal cost on room, neither did swim up bar. We would have used the bar more if we could put... More

Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. We are very happy to read you enjoyed your visit and appreciated all we have to offer. The restaurant is not under the resort's management thus running a tab isn't possible here. As you mentioned, our resort is in the perfect location close to lots of unique activities. We hope to...

We also paid a $10.50 USD fee per night/resort fee. Loved the condo - 2 bedroom with two bathroom, all rooms are oceanview. Condo was very... More

2nd time here - yes Diamond owner - I score the place even average based on the location which is amazing - although - the beach was very dirty and when I said something to the front desk I was told sorry its a public beach. Does not appear that way in all the pictures. The units are so average,... More

I can now see why this group returns every two years. A nice resort centrally located and within walking distance of everything from restaurants, bakery, grocery store and sites. Would definately return!

I stayed at this Resort with my husband and my 3 children (13, 10 & 8) and we loved it! Everyone is very polite, starting from the check in counter. The room is very spacious; it has a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fantastic view. Even though we went low season, the fun was there. Happy hour... More

This is the first time that we've stayed at the Royal Palm beach resort in Saint Maarten. We expected a lot less of a room and hotel when I booked it, but I was so surprised and pleased at the service, accommodations, and the view and facilities that were available for us to use. I highly recommend anybody looking for... More
