The nice gardens and quiet pool setting saved our vacation! Having read about Orient Bay having such a great beach I was absolutely disappointed by what we saw and we preferred being at the hotel's small pool instead of going down to the beach. The ocean was great for surfers (mostly kite surfers) but bathing was barely possible or enjoyable....

My husband and I have been coming to St. Maarten almost every year since 1994 and have stayed a bunch of places...and Palm Court is our new favourite. A 3 minute stroll to Orient Beach, right through Orient Village which features about 9 restaurants (with 6 being fancier) for dinner and grocery stores for daytime supplies; etc. A very chill...

I would like to start off saying, "I love the island of St. Maarten", especially the french side. But having said that, Palm Court was just "alright". I was hoping to have a facility that was customer service friendly and accommodating. NOT THE CASE. The breakfast that is so called 'included", is basically a lot of cards/ bread and low...

I have been to St. Martin many times. I had never stayed at Palm Court but it had such wonderful reviews, we thought we'd give it a try. The Hotel exceeded my expectations! We were greeted by Ann, the Hotel Manager. She is wonderful. It is a relatively small hotel and the guests mingle at breakfast by the pool. The...

This was an excellent hotel with helpful and pleasant staff and free wifi. The room was clean and an easy walk to a beautiful beach and shopping. Night life was pleasant with choices of excellent restaurants. Getting a taxi was a challenge so reserve one the day before if needing to get back to the airport.

Returning to Palm Court for the 5th time. Always feeling at home. Anne and her staff are very kind and always ready to help with restaurants and other reservations. The location is very convenient, parking is safe and Waikiki Beach one of the best spots in Orient Bay

We really enjoyed this hotel as our last stop in our tour of St. Barths, Anguilla, and both St. Maarten and St. Martin. What really stood out for us in this hotel was its location. It was a quick walk to the beach, as well as the resturants. The hotel was so convenient we canceled our car rental since everything...

The Palm Court Hotel is the perfect place to enjoy the French side of the island of St. Martin. Located within steps of Orient Beach, it's Moroccan furnishings and French ambiance cannot be beaten. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The manager immediately corrected my reservation error. The French breakfast (included) was delicious. Besides being close to the beach,...

We were planning to stay there for 4 nights and then move to the Dutch side, but the next day we already decided to extend our stay for the whole vacation. The hotel is just amazing. To start with, the reception girl was very helpful. Not only she recommended good places to eat, she called someone and brought a hand-written...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palm Court is situated in Orient Bay, just two minutes walk from the beach and all local amenities. Orient Beach is on the windward side of the island, so the hotel is blessed with the cooling Caribbean trade winds for most of the year. The breeze not only keeps the temperatures comfortable, but also provides ideal conditions for watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. ... more   less

“All the rooms are similar. It's a matter of what floor and the distance from the entrance and pool.”

“Top floor room was very private, but the lack of insulation in the vaulted ceiling, makes the A/C less than able to cool the room to a comfortable temp.”
