After a long travel day we arrived to an extremely unfriendly receptionist who set the trip off to a negative start. W then learned that the main pool was closing the next day for renovations (which they claimed would take a week but we're still underway when we left). The rooms are equivalent to a day's in motel, average at... More

This resort is close to everything. Beach, pool, bars & restaurants. Very clean & friendly employees. Look forward to going back. Food at pool bar was delicious. I had a pool/ocean view. Was wonderful to wake up every morning and sit on balcony and enjoy it all. The employees seem to know you by first name by the second day.... More

My family has come here for years and we always have a good time. In Maho, there is a bit of everything...shopping, clubs, restaurants, a casino, sun and surf. There are... More

This is our first time staying in Maho, and we really like it. The planes land right next door (literally), but it's not much of a bother. The beach is nice, as is the pool area. The rooms are also nice, although our air conditioning was a bit hard to control. And a toaster would have been more convenient than... More

Love this place!! - only thing needed is a dehumidifier in the room. Other than that service, cleanliness and convenience to everything was superb! Grocery, restaurants, beach, pool and casino all right there, Just bring bags for your groceries or you have to pay for bags.

We spent a fun and relaxing week at the Royal Islander Club La Plage. Our suite was on the 5th floor with a spectacular view of the pool and ocean. We had a 2 bedroom with a pull out couch.
