We were able to trade our timeshare to come here with Interval International, and we enjoyed our week at the beach. The resort is central to everything in the Maho district, and after a couple of days you get used to all the airplane noise. Our unit was one bedroom with a garden-level terrace, which was more than adequate for...

Took the daughters here for daughters 40th birthday. The travel girl at the desk was great. Planned 3 trips around island. First cab ride around island and stopped in Margot for lunch. Did snuba diving which the group enjoyed. Also went snorkeling on the Red Baron with the trurtles. Ate on boat. The food was excellent, all freshly made even...

We stayed in the penthouse. It's 3 bedrooms 3.5 bathrooms. All rooms here have beautiful views. We loved watching planes come in from our porch! Two things that need improvement. The pool is ice cold (although beautiful and new), the hot tub is lacking (it's seems like residential 4 person). The other negative are the rooms need major updating, they...

We exchanged here as we wanted a last minute and this resort was available. We actually own a couple weeks on the island at another RCI resort. Of course, we are comparing the resort to ours.... Firstly we got a basement room or I guess here, they call them ground level .... And we look out onto an over grown...

You just can't beat the location of this timeshare property. If you like to people watch and the airplanes it's perfect. If you want more solitude then I would look elsewhere. So much within walking distance and the market right across the street make it so you never really have to leave the area unless you want to, and you...

Centrally located, close to the airport, and surrounded by restaurants and entertainment, the Royal Islander Place, is such a safe and inviting place, with a warm, helpful and friendly staff. Nice and well maintained, it offers choice of adequate chaises and umbrellas around the pool, as well as near and on the beach. Fun activities, including bingo, from Monday to...

I hate to age myself but as a child I went with my family to Sint Maarten and I was the one who talked them into buying the Timeshare MANY years ago, in fact so long ago now it was still being built. We were staying at the Maho Beach Resort, which is owned by the same family, the Spederos...

I own a single bedroom on the third floor. Great care goes into keeping furnishings and kitchen appliances up to date. The marble throughout has stood the test of time. The room has full refrigerator, range, microwave, oven, toaster oven, blender, dishwasher, table service for 4 and easy to eat in. Great view and strong sliding glass for hurricane season....

Great views of Maho beach and the pool. Pool has recently been turned into freshwater and is so much better than chlorinated pools. Happy hour (3-5) is a perfect time for relaxing. The staff for activities and front desk are excellent. Security is good. Grocery store across the street has anything/everything you could need. Clean towels available 8-12 and 1-5....

I will start off this review with a quick background-there were 3 adults early to mid-fifties traveling together. The 3 of us travel frequently and this is the 3trip to SXM in as many years. The first two times we stayed over in Phillipsburg at the Sea Palace and enjoyed the boardwalk atmosphere very much but thought we would change...
