Diamond Resorts Reviews -- St. Maarten's Tropical Beach Resorts

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - April 09, 2016) -  The sunny island of St. Maarten is the picturesque embodiment of a classic Caribbean isle. Once a key colonial outpost, the island boasts more nightlife with many clubs and bustling casinos. It is fringed by turquoise water, white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and offers a host of outdoor activities like snorkeling and scuba diving, windsurfing, hiking, and horseback riding. Diamond Resorts International®, one of the world's largest vacation ownership companies, has three properties -- Royal Palm Beach Resort, Flamingo Beach Resort, and Flamingo Beach Villas in St. Maarten. With such an attractive choice of destinations and accommodations, it is no surprise that guests keep returning every year.

Each Diamond Resorts property is located near one another, so they are equally convenient for reaching all the island's casinos, restaurants, bars and other attractions. All Diamond Resorts members are granted access to the different resorts, with complimentary shuttles to move easily between each recreational activity. The lively capital of St. Maarten, Philipsburg, is nearby -- allowing visitors to sightsee along the boardwalk and take advantage of the duty-free shopping. Families and couples can also visit the St. Maarten Zoo or immerse themselves in the island's history at the St. Maarten Museum.

Royal Palm Beach Resort features 140 large condo-style accommodations -- up to 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and each with a complete, fully-equipped kitchen -- perfect for a more family-oriented trip. The property is situated right along St. Maarten's Simpson Bay, making it especially easy to access the beach, which includes amazing sport fishing. There are more than a dozen restaurants and shops right behind the resort, allowing a convenient and relaxed walk to taste the local cuisines. There is also an on-site restaurant and a swim-up pool bar.

Flamingo Beach Resort and Flamingo Beach Villas offer a total of 240 rooms -- with the primary differences between "resort" and "villas" being the location and size of the accommodations. Flamingo Beach Resort is comprised of smaller studio and 1-bedroom units situated along the beach, while the Flamingo Beach Villas include larger units up to 2-bedrooms that wind up a hillside and offer spectacular vista views over the waterfront where numerous cruise ships glide past. The beautiful gardens are carefully manicured and planned, and with the cozier rooms, Flamingo Beach Resort and Flamingo Beach Villas are the perfect getaway for romantic couples and solo travelers.

Guests across all Diamond Resorts International® properties are offered all the best-quality and modern conveniences. Most rooms have private balconies or patios, with complimentary Wi-Fi, DVD players, cable TV, telephones and safes. Newspapers and information about the island are available in the lobby, there are dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk to help with any problems or needs. No matter which St. Maarten property guests book, they will be sure to create memories to last a lifetime.
