My wife and I and two close friends have just come back from an enjoyable week in St. Maarten. Simpson Bay resort has lived up to the standards that we expected since our first visit in 1996. The rooms were large and well taken care of and those areas that needed attention were quickly addressed. The staff was friendly and amenities at the resort were plentiful. Dinner was always great and Geraldine did a great job in ensuring that our meals were to our liking. We booked a visit to St. Barts and were pleased with our tour guide and the beauty of the island. The location of the resort made it easy to get to many adventures on the island that we had experienced. The only negative is getting into the resort coming from the airport. It is a very hard right hand turn that is difficult to make when you have traffic behind you. Although the tour buses seem to have no problem in making that turn. I would recommend the island, the resort and getting a rental car and explore to your hearts content. There are many beaches including Pinei island which I highly recommend, fantastic dinners anywhere on the French side, zip line and obstacle course in the mountains and lets not forget the casinos and great night life at Maho. Just bring your swimwear or forget it, just go and enjoy. Great place to bring out the inner child and relax.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the beach are not as windy as the ones facing the bay.

We were given one of the new refurbished units up on the hill and my wife and I couldn't be more pleased with our accommodations. The resort overall is wonderful with everything under the sun to please your adventure and relaxation needs. Everything is clean and fresh, the staff pleasant and accommodating. The views from the room are wonderful, a beautiful ocean view. We were assisted in putting our trip together by one of the Royal Resorts GM's who helped us with this wonderful room. I can't say enough about how pleasant Simpson Bay is, a top notch destination.

Room Tip: I think all rooms must be nice, but the refurbished rooms are exceptional.

Let me start by saying, the resort is first rate. This is our second year staying at Simpson Bay and have been to the island many times. My wife and I stayed in a on bedroom in the B building (B554). The villa was completely renovated with stainless steel appliances and had one of the best views on the Island. There were swimming pools everywhere along with tennis courts and of course the beach, absolutely wonderful. We love the area because there are many restaurants within walking distance. We rented a car for the week and the resort had plenty of spaces. Check-in was a breeze and all the staff was very nice and the grounds was spotless.. My wife and I cannot wait to return to Simpson Bay Resorts. We highly recommend...

Room Tip: Try and get into the B Building on the 4th or 5th floor, there are elevators.

We stayed at the Simpson Bay Resort 5 days 4 nights. The rooms were cleaned and equipped with everything. Easy pool and beach access. The location was excellent, very close to restaurants shops and only 15 minutes driving to get to Phillipsburg. I hope to return with my family next year and hopefully we can stay in the new rooms they are currently renovating.
