This is ony our second day here and we sure hope it improves!! We have already had several incidents regarding service and staffs unnecessary attitude towards us. Staff particularly at the onsite restaurant and bar are very unpleasant and simply are there only for the money. We waited 25 minutes at a table before we got up ourselves to get...

I was very pleasantly surprised to get exactly what I wanted without having to ask! I had a two bedroom, ground floor- the beach right outside my door! Clean, well maintained grounds, great staff, beautiful! I didn't want to leave! The view and accessibility to everything SXM is known for is within walking distance. RP is the perfect spot to...

This was our first time staying at Royal Palm, because we normally stay at the other Diamond property in Simpson Bay. The suites here are very nice and well appointed. The staff was very attentive to any needs that came up (patio door and kitchen faucet). We enjoyed the on-site bar/restaurant, which had really friendly staff. Here are my only...

Your 4-star review (or circles, as the case may be) is greatly appreciated! We are so thrilled to hear the details of your first stay at our resort! We understand that mosquitoes are not welcome guests in your room; they are prominent in the area and can be found all over the island. We recommend that you keep doors and...

We heard that check-in was often a problem, but we decided to finally give this place a try. We booked a room and confirmed the day before. When we got to the hotel at 1030pm (our flight was late) they said they did not have a room for us. They offered us a room at another hotel further away. We...

This was our 17th trip to SXM (obviously a favorite!), but our first time at the Royal Palm. The postives: great location (restaurants, bakeries/cafes, grocery stores etc), beautiful room and view, awesome beach towels, nice beach, lots of free parking and the on-site restaurant is very reasonable. The not-so great part: Our check-in. Arrived on a Thursday at 4PM and...

The Resort website states that they have water sports, fishing and snorkeling "on-site". To most I think that would indicate that the items necessary to do those activities are on site as well. Nope. No snorkeling gear to rent, no fishing gear to rent, no water sports gear to rent, with the exception of a slide attached on top of...
