Rooms are well appointed & comfortable. The views are spectacular, & the staff friendly. I recommend the coconut shrimp at the bar. The beach is extremely calm, easy to get in and out, sandy bottom great for kids.

Everything you need is within walking distance, restaurants/bars with nightly music, food stores, liquor stores and shops. We are not into gambling, but the casinos are...

All rooms face to waterfront with a nice balcony with tables and chairs to sit at to watch the sunset. Full kitchen free laundry in the hotel not rooms which was fine....

Royal Palm is one our favorite places to stay. All rooms are ocean front, walking distance to many restaurants, nice grocery store. One our favorite things to do is to walk across the street to the St. Maarten Marina for breakfast or a drink and watch the beautiful boats come in.
