Loved it. Very quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Would only love it more with the upgrades. Absolutely plan on returning. Staff and food were wonderful; give those 5 star. Accommodations need some updating; give those 3 star. Property came under new ownership from when I booked to when I stayed. I assume that contributed to difficulty communicating at first. I was told the new owner plans on making some updates to the restaurant, the cottages and adding some additional amenities such as a pool, which would put this place over the top.

I just needed to have some solitude and a disconnect from the real world and this was a perfect choice.the manager Carmen,Jyra and Kelli took amazing care of me,including bringing almost all of my meals to my cottage and brought me a cocktail anytime I wanted one.The internet worked pretty well considering you are on an island in the middle of the ocean.Jyra took me on a private snorkel tour about a 15 minute boat ride to the crazy beautiful reef that had the best snorkelingI have ever done,it was truly amazing!

This resort is absolutely breathtaking! My husband and I were greeted by the property manager, Carmen, who was very helpful during our stay. Anything we ever needed, we just asked, and there it was! The cottage we stayed in was very roomy, with a nice hammock, table and chairs on the back porch. Our stairs led directly to the beach, where there were kayaks and paddleboards to use. We were able to kayak out towards a little island and it was as beautiful as the resort. The cuisine on the island was diverse (we had no dietary restrictions) and always delicious. I highly recommend the snorkeling and the sunset boat cruise activities that the resort has available for purchase. The bartenders were helpful and friendly, as well as the overall staff. I recommend this resort for those who need to get away from all the noise of life! Very relaxing, we will be back!

You can't beat the location--a private cottage right on the beach with an awesome view. There were only five cottages on the island, which made for a very quiet, peaceful, and enjoyable stay. The staff were fantastic. Carmen was attentive to all our needs. She came by every day to make sure that all was good. The food was outstanding. We loved having the option of eating at the restaurant or having the food delivered to our cottage so we could enjoy it on our porch overlooking the ocean. The interior of the cottages could use a little tlc, but don't let that hinder your decision to stay here. You won't be disappointed.

A lovely Stay
The island is quite small but we had it almost to ourselves. We had a lovely stay. The views are beautiful. The food is absolutely wonderful- they have an excellent chef. Because of covid, maid service was every other day but that was sufficient. My only reproach was not having been warned in advance to wear bug spray if it is not windy and to bring creams for bites.

We had a wonderful stay at Royal Palm. This family owned treasure is a wonderful place to relax as well as explore. The staff makes you feel like part of the family with their personal attention to every detail - from meal options to excursions to making sure your lounger is as comfortable as possible. We were so sad to leave this paradise and hope to be back in the future!
