April 2017 - Really clean, food experience was great specially with no maximum at Restaurant à la carte. We had diner every night at each Restaurant (Steakhouse, French (Krystal), and La Mer (Sea food)). Went to the buffet just for breakfast and they had multiple choices for every taste = Very good. We've stayed at a Superior Junior Suite on...

This was the first time that my husband and I visited St. Martin. We were looking for an all-inclusive resort where we wouldn't have to worry about additional expenses. I have to say that we had an overall bad experience. First they put us in the wrong room. We paid for a Superior Suite however received a Junior suite. While...

The Riu St Martin is a nice hotel. Just nice. Travelled as a family of four with two boys age 8 and 10. The small feel to the property was great. It was very pretty and felt low key, which was lovely. The pool was big, never felt crowded but with lots of chairs and very pretty. The kids spent...

I was there about two weeks ago and I have to tell you that I LOVED it. People, do not listen to the bad reviews. The first thing is the greetings from the front desk. They are truly amazing and explain everything to you. My room was perfect and it did not smell bad. It was really nice. The hotel...

We stayed at the Riu from 5/4-5/12 for our 25 Year Anniversary and it was a perfect choice and just what we were looking for...a beautiful, quiet location. My husband is already talking about returning! We arrived very late at night and they were obviously expecting us! We were thrilled to discover we'd been upgraded (for free) from a suite...

Just returned from a wonderful week-long vacation at this resort. While some things could be updated, it does not take away from the experience. The food was excellent! Most of the staff were very friendly and the views were to die for. Take advantage of a taxi guided tour to really see the island and book a snorkeling excursion with...

This hotel is amazing. The food is delicious. The buffet offered endless options. One night there were lobster tails and prime rib. The French pastries were scrumptious. I have been to bakeries at home that didn't serve such quality items. The a la carte restaurants were wonderful. The Krystal had a strict dress code, which was nice. The lobster risotto...
