This was our first time staying at the Royal Palm. We usually stay over in Maho, but due to a scheduling mix up, we ended up at the Royal Palm. Both my mom and I have been to St. Maarten many times and are always happy, but we were absolutely blown away by the amazing staff at this resort. Everyone was so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. A special shout out to my girls Karina and Rasha at the pool bar for the kick-a$s mudslides and smiles, our fun waiter Shaquil at Cabana restaurant and our lovable bellhop Yonel. Without friendly faces like this, you'd just be another resort on the map. They truly are what made our stay special! Kudos to them and to your for hiring such great staff.
Our room was extremely clean with a great view of KimSha Beach. We had a minor water leak while maintenance was fixing the AC and someone came right away to check on it for us ( I wish I remembered his name, he was a super friendly young man from the DR). We had a 2br 2ba and both bedooms had a very nice mattress.
The area was great, you're in walking distance to lots of great bars and restaurants (our fav was the lobster @ the Boathouse as well as Karakter) a nice market and also on the bus route. I highly suggest utilizing the bus if you don't rent a car! The resort also had a complimentary shuttle to their sister resort just up the street. The beach has too small bays with calm, flat water. This is great for floating and also for children - easy to get in and out as well.
I hope we get the opportunity to stay here again! We are looking forward to seeing our friendly faces when we get back.
Friendly staff will help any way they can, from front desk to housekeeping. Clean rooms with full kitchen setup. Free WIFI in rooms although not very dependable.
Great view from living room and balcony. Easy walking distance to several good restaurants and casino. Two bedroom/two bathroom setup ideal for 2 couples.
This unit was beyond expectation. The views of both the ocean and the locks to Simpson bay Yacht club were fabulous. The two bedroom unit provided our family with more than enough room. The Royal Palms service was fantastic and well worth the money.
Choose the white sand beach or the pool with a swim up bar. Wonderful out door dining with reasonable pricing and a helpful smiling staff to assist you in settling in, or a good list of activities to meet most any level of excitement on land or sea. The water is warm, clear and inviting. The islanders are friendly and easy to talk to. This is truly a wonderful place to use as your base for a fantastic vacation experience.
