I stayed here with my buddy who owns a Diamond Resorts International timeshare. It was very close to the airport, which was quite useful since 2 of the 6 of us arrived one day later since they missed their flight. The 6 of us originally reserved a 3 bedroom suite. There wasn't a suite of that size available for the...

Great staff, huge rooms for the 2 bed/2 bath. Very clean. Great pool. Food was ok. Recently reduced the size of the gym but still great. Right in the heart of the action in Simpson Bay. you can walk anywhere and you don't need a car. It was my second time there and found great deals online.

We needed a 7 day getaway from the cold Northeast weather and came across Royal Pam Resort in Cole Bay. Best part about this is hotel is their location. It's 5-8 min away from the airport and it's right in front of their restaurant row. Plus, it's near all the major ports to go check out other islands (St Barts,...
