Had a great time

The four of us arrived before the room was ready. Not a big problem normally. The staff provided a safe place for us to store our luggage and change for the beach. The problem was that the check in time came and went and still the room wasn't ready. We waited and waited and waited some more. The counter staff kept calling for someone to confirm the room was ready and no one bothered to reply. Finally someone took the initiative to actually go to the room and check. Once we finally got checked in, the room was very good and we enjoyed our stay. Just remember that everything is on island time. Oh....and there is a service charge added to every restaurant check. However, this is not a tip for the wait staff. We were told it is for the back of the house staff. You can end up paying 30% in tips. (This is not a Royal Palm thing, the entire island is that way.)

Nice family getaway

We just returned from spending thanksgiving weekend at royal palm beach resort. The two bedroom layout allowed us to have our boys in one room and us in the other. This is a timeshare property so daily cleaning is only provided with an extra payment. The full service kitchen provided us with the ability to have leisurely breakfasts in the room and to heat up leftovers from dinners out. There is only one restaurant at the resort and it is very average. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the game room. My husband and I were very impressed by the size and quality of the gym which we used almost daily. The activities desk is stocked with flyers and from those we found a good half day boat trip for snorkeling and exploring the French side of the island. Nearby restaurants and grocery stores made it easy to enjoy the local area. We had nice meals at Panlaan (thai), Izi ( Italian) and the palms (Caribbean food). The hotel is so so. If there was something nicer available I would prefer to stay there. But this was definitely convenient and we made the most of it. Try to get a room on the third floor or higher to get the nice views.

Royal Palm

I've been going to St. Marten for 23+ years, and this is my hotel of choice. Great rooms, each with a view. Full kitchen, dining room, LR, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One of my favorite places.

Nice hotel but...

I really enjoyed my stay. The room was nice, location was excellent, the stuff were friendly and helpful, but... when I came back to NY I got a phone call from my credit card company...telling me that someone tried to buy some stuff from the store in St.Maarten for $9800 using my credit card number, which I gave the Royal Palm Beach hotel for incidental charges, so my cc number was stolen from this hotel :( Will never stay at this hotel again!!!!!

nice family vacation getaway

This is a nice family resort, even though the hotel could use some cosmetic renovation. The best part is that you get a 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, living room & dining room, so you feel very comfortable. All the rooms have ocean view & that is a nice perk.

The Best Place to Stay in Sint Maarten's...

It was better than we expected, especially for the price. We had a first floor 2 bedroom suite w/full kitchen & 2 full baths & it was beautiful. And if that wasn't enough, the patio walked right out onto the beach! The beach was your front yard! We were amazed! The pool was beautiful as well. Also great was the fact that there were so many places you could walk to. Every night we just walked to a different restaurant for dinner. And there were small markets to shop at to fill your fridge for breakfast & lunch. A couple of times we ate breakfast at a French pastry shop nearby. No need to rent a car whatsoever. We took the bus a couple of times to the boardwalk & beach in Philipsburg - only $1.50/person, one way - what! We want to go back to explore more.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

At the boardwalk in Philipsburg, for the best deals, don't shop at the stores on the boardwalk, shop from the stores on the streets behind the boardwalk. Also, great deal for the day at the beach; all along the boardwalk most every place will have an offer of: 2 chairs, 1 umbrella & 5 drinks for $20! Can't beat it.

good spot

The staff at the bars were friendly and helpful. We paid extra for ocean view and found all the rooms to have a ocean view. The hotel confirmation number was different than the one provided.
