Fodor's Expert Review Royal Islander Club La Terrasse
1 Rhine Rd., Maho Reef, n/a St. Maarten, St. Maarten
This smaller and somewhat nicer sister time-share resort to the Royal Islander Club La Plage is right across the street and shares many of the same amenities, including the larger resort's beach. It's a good quiet choice for families. Suites have fine vistas, either of the garden, the pool, or the ocean. There are one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. For couples who need a smaller space, a lock-out studio (with a kitchenette only) can be created from the two-bedroom units. Furnished with rattan furniture, each of the tiled units has a fully equipped kitchen and marble-topped bathroom. There's weekly maid service, but for an extra fee the maid will come daily.
- in a hip area, near restaurants and bars
- not on the beach
- because this is a time-share, rooms can be hard to book during peak periods
- Internet access is expensive
Rate Includes: Closed early Sept., No meals
