Loved the place. Within walking distance of some great restaurants. Had a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment with balcony. Extremely nice. I'd live here!! Plenty of easy parking which is unusual in St. Maarten. Great staff. Was right on the channel that connects Simpson Bay to the boat harbor and where I was easily able to walk to fish for Tarpon. Photos are from my 5th floor apartment.

My only complaint is the mosquitos were out of control...not just outside, but in the rooms. They really need to treat the rooms, but otherwise it was lovely.

Everyone was friendly and helpful. Accommodations were great.

Overall a good experience, just a maintenance issue that was reported 2x's but not repaired!!

Nice location having own beach, close to supermarket and all kinds of restaurants

We enjoy the view of the ocean and the fact we can watch the boats enter and exit the lagoon. The beach is beautiful and protected enough to swim everyday. We also love watching the resident iguanas as we sit on the beach.

We stayed at this resort in a 2 bedroom room with pull out sofa. The sofa is the most comfortable pull out I have seen. The room was comfortable and easy to stay in. Maid service every 4 days was plenty. The beds were pretty comfortable and both were kings, so that was a big plus. The beach was perfect and there were always plenty of lounge chairs there. This hotel was a good deal and although not too fancy, a nice place to stay for a family. Would recommend to others.

I have visited SXM five times and stayed in different hotels. This is by far the hotel that feels like home.

I did enjoy my stay at the royal palm beach hotel, I will come back

The hotel was clean, affordable, and conveniently located.

The staff was amazing especially the gents during check in. All questions answered and even offered some ideas. Nice room, view is great, location is prime. The only negative thing is that I found the living room furniture a little too big and bulky. The sofabed is fine, chairs etc make the room feel small and cramped. Would stay there again though.

Staff was wonderful! Everything was top notch, will definitely use again and recommend.
