Great amenities, close to good places to eat & rooms were huge w/full size kitchen, 2 bedrooms & 2 bath with balcony faces ocean. Loved the bar by the pool/ocean plenty of chairs to sit on and relax. Views were great, friendly staff to help you find things.

Made the mistake of grabbing a deal for an overnight stay in St Martin due to a missed flight connection. This place is close to the airport. That is about all I can say that is positive. It took 2.5 hours after we arrived for an acceptable room to be ready. We asked for a quiet room and they put...

Most Relaxing Vacation I have had. Everything is close by, sitting on your private balcony having Coffee in the morning as the Cruise Ships go by and the excursions boats are preparing for the day. Nothing better! .

It's not ultra luxurious but if you're looking for clean, well appointed living with the most awesome view then this is it!

It's in the heart of everything-walking to several restaurants, bars, grocery stores etc....

First time here and I can't wait to return!! Beautiful spot with gorgeous views. The staff, across the board, are the nicest, most accommodating and hard-working people I've ever met.

Place is perfect if you want a nice beach, plenty of beach chairs, calm ocean, warming distance to event you need. Clean had no issues whatsoever! Rent from an owner. Nothing bad to say. We did not attempt to check in before 4, understanding that check in starts at 4. Don't know why people complain about check in when it...

Having travelled to many places in the Caribbean, we decided to become owners of two weeks, after staying at other resorts on the island. We settled on Royal Palms because of the location: great beach, rarely any rough waves, wide beach, and the resort's proximity to so many great restaurants, and good shopping. The Royal Palms has a fantastic beach,...

I enjoyed everything about Royal Palm Hotel. The location is central on the Dutch side of St. Martin. The room was very clean and comfortable. Amazing sea view. I visited the gym which I was able to do my exercise while on vacation with my in-laws. I will highly recommend.

Rooms are well appointed & comfortable. The views are spectacular, & the staff friendly. I recommend the coconut shrimp at the bar. The beach is extremely calm, easy to get in and out, sandy bottom great for kids.
