“If you look hard enough during the off-season you'll find rates at hotels like Tamarind Hotel around $85 a night.”
Philipsburg, St. Maarten-St. Martin is a pleasant, tropical paradise year-round, with warm weather every season. However, deep in the winter hollows of December through February, the weather seems even more appealing, reaching the high eighties every day. Because of this ideal winter weather, winter is when hotels like the Royal Palm Beach Resort hike their rates for more exclusive travelers. You can avoid these rate hikes if you travel here off-season. During the drier weeks of May and June, and from November to mid-December, you can escape the seasonal rain, and avoid getting soaked by the higher rates at every hotel in Philipsburg!
