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...

Spacious 2 bed appartment with all mod cons + a great sea view. Food + service at the pool bar could be better but there are plenty of great alternatives within 5 minutes walk. Also a great supermarket within 5 minutes walk.

We have stayed at other Diamond Properties and we very happy with the Royal Palm. Our unit was great and we loved the views from our fourth floor balcony. The front office staff, especially, Mervin, was helpful from the first day through the last! We used the pool a few times and wished it had been bigger and that you...

Great resort. Use the happy hour at the pool bar, good drinks. Barbeque grill is a nice touch, go into town and buy cheap liquor at the grocery and liquor store. Relax on the balcony and enjoy the view. The staff was exceptional. We were there right after the storm and I am sure they were exhausted, they were great....

It is midnight on Saturday, November 1, 2014. I am writing this review as security is spraying the master bedroom and living room in unit 8528 for ants. This might seem minor to some but since this is the second bug incident in this establishment in five days, it is not to me. We arrived on Monday, October 27th and...

Well, as you can guess by the title, we were also here during Hurricane Gonzalo. Unlike the reviewer who haited their stay because a Hurricane, which is an act of nature, happened to ruin their stay because they had to work to keep water out of their unit, we worked with happiness in our hearts to preserve the resort. Yes,...

We got a 2 bedroom unit on the fifth floor this year but, man, do I hate the walk to the ends of the wings. Overall, not a bad stay but quite a few issues with the room. Our stay was 5-15 October. Check in and the desk staff were great despite us being late due to flight issues. We...
