Palm Court Hotel
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Very cosy place , quiet but well located in the Orient bay compound, very near to the beach and a bunch of restaurants, snack bars and some small grocery stores. We had a very spacious and clean bedroom and kitchenette, and also large bathroom well furnished with mirrors , and terrace as well with a pretty view over the swimming pool. Wifi system is slow in the bedroom, far better around the pool. The staff is friendly specially the manager Anne, who was very helpful to book a taxi, and showing places of interest and even rent a car. Breakfast is good and tasty, although eggs and fresh fruit juices are for a fee. But St Martin is not much a dream island, so much invaded by tourists, especially in the Dutch side. In the contrary beaches are awesome, very clean, some good for snorkelling. A part from Orient bay, try Ilot Pinel, Mullet Beaches, but a couple of others are good for swimming or just sun bathing. Lolo restaurants are good in Grand Case, better than in Marigot, but the ones in Orient bay are mostly overpriced.
The Palm Court met all of our expectations. The past positive reviews are all true. It was a two-three minute walk to the beach club, market and restaurants.The complimentary breakfast worked as discussed in previous reviews. We were treated very well at the beach club associated with the hotel. The hotel is secure, quiet and has a peaceful ambience. My wife and I travel a week a month and have been to a wide range of resorts. We would rate Palm Court high for value and a positive experience. All of the staff were engaging and attentive. We ate at six restaurants within walking distance of Palm Court for dinner. All of them were really good to great for taste, value and service.
My husband and I spent 5 days at this hotel We were greeted graciously by Anne and she showed us to our room (#9 - second floor) and it looked exactly like the pictures on the website. It was large, clean, comfortable with a balcony overlooking the pool and breakfast area. It was very quiet and private at the hotel and the air conditioning worked perfectly. There are lots of English TV channels including major networks if that matters to you. The very large open shower was great with plenty of hot water. We were provided with 2 towels, 2 hand towels and 2 large beach towels. There are no washcloths so make sure you bring one from home if you use one. We really loved our room.The breakfast was plentiful consisting of juices, fruit, yogurt, breads, pastries, meat/cheese, cereal and coffee and tea. In addition, eggs and omelettes could be purchased. Juline, the host at breakfast, was delightful, always smiling and very friendly. The entire hotel is secured by a fence and decorated to look like a tropical paradise with trees, plants, flowers and lanterns. The private parking is accessed with a code to open the gate. There is also a walk in gate with a key lock - the key is provided to you with your room key.The walk to the beach is about 5-10 minutes and there is a small supermarket and restaurants along the way. There are 2 beaches where chairs and umbrellas are free to Palm Court guests. We ate at the Yellow Sub 2 times and enjoyed our food there. For those who want to go to the Naturist Beach near Club Orient you can drive to the far parking lot (with lots of shops) in about 3 minutes. You can rent chairs and an umbrella from Pedro's for $15 and get 2 drinks and a bathroom pass - good deal.When we were there (end of March 2017) the Euro was about equal to the American dollar so US dollars were accepted almost everywhere. We did purchase Euros but did not really need them. The internet at the hotel is not strong. It is a little slow and goes in and out. It was better for us on our porch or at the breakfast area, but we felt it was acceptable.We highly recommend this hotel and enjoyed our time there very much!
Well we landed in St. Martin and done a few days in RIU all inclusive and it sucked. The staff walked around with a fake smile and it was clean to be seen. I ordered room service and it arrived a total mess. Orange juice spilled all over the place, all over the food, when I say this, it was so disgusting I wish I took a pic so you would believe me. I'd never stay in RIU Hotel & Resorts again. Now let's talk about the Palm Court Hotel, if I'd all the money in the world I'd stay there year round. So clean, so friendly, in the perfect spot, restaurants 3 min walk, the beach 5 min or less, I can't tell you how much we loved the Palm Court, if I had of known I'd of stayed there there whole vacation. P.S ..... do your selfs a favor, rent a car and drive around the island. Amazing views amazing everything. Stay at Palm Court. They even have a cute little French Girl there worth checking out hehehehe, the receptionist. Hi Louise :))) Remember that rose bush hehehe.
If you are looking for beautiful serenity...look no further. This place offers serenity, peace and quite. They offer gated boutique hotel with delicious free breakfast, a lovely pool and simple but very clean rooms. We can walk to Orient Beach and to shops and restaurants as well. Do not miss this beautiful place. We shall return!
