We stayed at the Palm Court for 21 days in March and April of 2011. The rooms are large, clean and the beds comfortable. Each room has a set of hot plates, a coffee maker, plates, cutlery and a bar fridge. The shower is nice and large with lots of pressure and hot water. House keeping did a excellent job... More

I would stay here again but I would prefer a room on a higher level. We had a ground floor room and you could hear folks overhead. The room had a kitchenette which was nice. The bathroom lacked a shower curtain (quite European and a pain in the bottom as this means it is virtually impossible to keep the floor... More

All the positive comments about this hotel in previous reviews were accurate: from the most friendly and helpful attitude at the front desk in arranging excursions, car rental, and taxis to the quality of the daily room care and that of the grounds. There were no problems at Waikiki Beach ( 2 minute walk ), getting our complimentary chairs and... More

We needed a one-night, reasonably priced hotel in St. Martin the night before we left on a Star Clipper cruise. We didn't want to stay on the over-built, over-trafficked, over-commercialized Dutch side. We found the Palm Court at Orient Beach, and couldn't have been more pleased. From the secure, gated property to the large room with balcony, to the incredibly... More

This is a modern hotel with a friendly, helpful staff. The decor is Moroccan, both indoors and out. The rooms and grounds are well appointed with a secure parking area. The location is within a relatively new resort development containing several restaurants and small retail stores. These and Orient Beach are within a 5 minute walk. Even breakfast was excellent.

We loved the Palm Court, Alex was very helpful. The room was clean as advertised and a great rate, we will return! Very Close to the Beach and many great places to eat as well as just laying around enjoying the sun.

What a fantastic find on Orient Beach. The staff are extremely helpful and considerate; they really couldn't have done anything more or better to make you feel welcome, taken care of and pampered.

The rooms are basic but updated. The well traveled will appreciate the clean and spacious rooms, nice shower, friendly staff, and wonderful continental breakfast.

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.”
