RI La Plage is a new favorite for several reasons. The area - Maho is perfect for nightlife, clubs, restaurants and casinos. An added bonus is the arrival/landing of the planes. You can witness this right on Royal Islander's beach which is a perfect spot. Or walk down to the famous spot next to The Sunset Beach Bar and watch...

Hi. Wy have been coming to st. Maarten on and off with Interval international swaps since 1997. Mostly we have stayed at Pelican/ Simpson Bay resort, Royal palm, and Oyster bay resorts. We never see Royal islander open for exchange because i think most owners are RCI and we are not. When i saw a one bedroom available for halloween...

We were guests of friends who exchanged their timeshare elsewhere to stay at RIC. We had read several very negative reviews and were a little apprehensive about this facility. After our week at RIC I can only say that the negative reviewers must have stayed at another resort. Our 2 BR suite was immaculate. Yes, the bathrooms are a little...

Having been an owner at the old Pelican Resort in Sint Maarten we always heard that Royal Islander was a great Timeshare Resort but wouldn't trade there because we owned in SXM already. We did let the Pelican week go and just traded into RI. We read a few unfavorable reviews here and wondered since we had not been to...

Stayed here from 10/25-11/1 and was nervous due to being placed here after a hurricane prevented any vacationers at the sister resort of Royal Islander Great Bay. I was very perturbed especially since was only notified 2 days prior to my vacation, but once we landed at the resort... we knew it was going to be a great week. Royal...

We had a 2 bedroom space. It had a small kitchen and nice size living room. The living room over looked the pool and beach which was lovely. It is in a good location and made it easy to walk to the market or restaurants. Other than that the time-share was pretty tired. We had a huge leak in the...

Stayed here for the 6th time the week of 10/18/14. The accommodations are average and the place is relatively clean, but the location is great. It's near the airport and watching the planes come and go is fun (they do not come in early in the morning or after about 5 p.m.). The location is great because you do not...

The studio we had was adequate... nothing special, but was clean and steps from the pool and beach. I did not appreciate cats hanging around the door, nor a drip coming from the rooms above. The hotel staff was not at all helpful.... they seemed to have a nonchalant attitude towards everything. The location was within walking distance of restaurants...

We stayed here on Aug 23.Aug 30 2014. The is in a perfect location as you can see. Now the facts the place can be a little more cleaner. The pool was good but can be cleaner. The beach the ladies that are selling their services are so rude when you tell them no thank you. One very heavy set...
