“Royale is Royal”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2015

Hubs and I have been coming to Vista Royale for the last 10 years. Larry and Deb have made outstanding improvements in the property, to make what was good, GREAT. If you want to spend time on SXM any time of the year(the weather is almost always perfect) and really be a "resident", the way to go is to rent this wonderful home. The place is immaculately clean, all the necessities, washer&/dryer/full(new) kitchen/amazing new shower, all the linens and towels necessary, tv/stereo/ac..private infinite pool.... Now to the real draw: the view, that mesmerizing, relaxing, god-created view............ Several years ago after telling my elderly parents about our love of this place, we brought them for a vacation. When my Dad walked in and saw the place/ the view, he remarked that he was going to be "living like the Kennedy's" for this vacation...I still chuckle when I think about it, but the truth is without spending what the "Kennedy's" spend, you too can enjoy the finer things in life....nothing like floating in the pool with glass of your favorite spirits watching the sunset and the world yourself a favor, when thinking about a vacation in SXM consider Vista Royale. (just don't book our weeks!)

“Amazing view !!”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2015

This is our tenth year staying at VistaRoyale and we don't want to go anywhere else. It has to be one of the most spectacular views on the planet. Every morning you wake up to arriving cruise ships, beautiful rainbows after a morning shower, the brilliant color of the waters in the bay. And your own private infinity pool, veranda and palm tree. New cabinets, appliances and countertop this year really upgraded the kitchen. It is a perfect property to get away, relax, and unwind. The new owners are easy to deal with and very accessible. Can't wait to return!

Response from the owner Thank you for your review. We look forward to having you stay for the next 10 years. Thanks for the pictures of the rainbow in the pool. We will try to use it.

“never gets old”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

Just returned from another amazing vacation at VistaRoyale. New owners Larry and Deb have made an outstanding home better wilh all their upgrades and personal touches. New refrigerator with an ice maker and water. Very convenient. The new washer and dryer is a blessing. The full comforts of home with one spectacular view. Flipping burgers on the BBQ while watching the cruise ships leave then having a nightcap in the private pool at sunset is priceless. Pictures just can't capture it all. The place is so breathtakingly beautiful that the only downside is we really have to make an effort to visit other parts of the island! We look forward to returning ever year.

This was our 10th consecutive year staying at Vista Royale. Breathtaking views, fabulous private pool, convient location in a gated community, minutes from Phillipsburg, very clean and comfortable. Alan and Royce have been great to work with since day one. We look forward to returning every year.

“Relaxing Vacatrion in Paradise”

Reviewed 31 May 2010

We escaped the northeast winter right after our houseguests left after the holidays and before our jobs got back into full swing. We have stayed at VistaRoyale on several previous occasions and found everything great as always. VistaRoyale is fully equiped, comfortably furnished, and private. The view from the pool patio is fantastic. As always, we were able to completely relax and rejuvenate before starting off another year in our jobs. We have never considered staying anywhere else on St. Maarten.

“Perfect Get-away!”

Reviewed 28 May 2010

My husband and I were married at Vista Royale, May, 2001. And we returned again in 02, 03, 05, 06, & 08. It is the perfect get-away! Secluded, safe, brilliant views, relaxing surroundings and alan and Royce Samit are the best hosts, and will help you with everything and anything to make your stay enjoyable.

“Great stay at Le Bijou...”

Reviewed 24 May 2010

My husband and I stayed at Le Bijou right next to Vista Royale for 10 days. The owners sent us a very helpful packet via email before our trip with a map, directions and other info about Phillpsburg. The villa itself was just stunning! The view was breathtaking and the private pool on the patio was very clean and a nice treat! The bathroom was large, with a stand up shower and a jacuzzi tub. It was a beautiful location at the top of a hill right outside the city in a gated community which felt very secure. Free calls to the US was a plus as well. The washer and dryer came in handy- we came home with clean clothes! The island was great- we had an amazing vacation, but the best part was coming back and relaxing at our private villa. We would definitely recommend Le Bijou. We hope to be back there sometime soon!

“And we will return again!”

Reviewed 23 May 2010

I believe this was our 6th or 7th stay at Vista Royale! Obviously, we love it there! The location is safe and the views are the best on St. Maarten. The home is tropically decorated, and impeccibly clean. Ever need has been thought of, and then some!! The grounds, pools, landscaping and tropical feel of the entire area is beyond description. Would we recommend or return? We are counting the days!

“Our favorite place to vacation”

Reviewed 21 May 2010

We have stayed here for the past 10 years and are always anxious to return. In fact we are booked for the upcoming year{Feb.2011} We often find ourselves talking about how many more months till we return. Going to SXM is a wonderful thing, but staying at Vistaroyale makes it special for us. Imagine walking out on the veranda in the morning with a cup of coffee and watching the cruise ships arrive and dock. You can watch all the activity in the harbor from an elevated view{about 450 feet above Great Bay}. Having breakfast on the veranda is special too.We enjoy this so much we don't go out for breakfast any more. Of course you have your own private pool. The best is yet to come. After a great day at the beach, we come back and get ready for dinner. But we never leave for dinner until we watch the sunset from Vistaroyale. I have many photos of these sunsets which I have shared with friends when we return home. In fact we even have people asking us to see them before we can get them printed. They look forward to seeing these most beautiful and awesome sunsets. They are simply breathtaking from here on top of Monte Vista. Now, imagine returning from dinner and there is a full moon coming up over the condo and shining over Great Bay. Very romantic setting to say the least. We feel so fortunate to have found this place and continue to rent it year after year. It's a great place to do some entertaining too. It has a huge BBQ grill and we always have people asking to come up for dinner and spend the evening. We always tell them to arrive before sunset so they can enjoy that too. The atmosphere, the warm breezes, and great sunsets, and the moon light just makes this a place you want to return to. People often ask me why I continue to go back to the same place. I tell them without hesitation that the best surprise is no surprise especially when your spending quality time with your wife on vacation. Who wants to wish they had booked something else and end up disappointed. Lee
