Lobby is old and run down. Rooms are dated and musty/moldy smell lingers and gets in clothing. Rooms were infested with ants and they were aware but didn't seem too interested in getting rid of them. Food is substandard to say the least!! This resort needs to be updated big time. Stay away until this is done!!

If you are driving to the resort beware, the signs are almost non existent. Upon arrival, it felt like a ghost town. Check in process went quickly as was escorted to our room, #2117 ground floor. Room had a strange odor or urine and mold. Of the two beds in the room, one had stained and ripped bedding. Our first...

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and for expressing your concerns. Regarding the mentioned smell we want to inform you that humidity is something very typical of a tropical climate, especially in Anse Marcel whose surroundings are mainly composed of beautiful vegetation and the beach. Our internal system is created to mitigate this....

This hotel is situated on the other side of a really tall steep large hill but it offers a fantastic view of the coast looking out to Anguilla. The RIU was just new when we went and it offered good entertainment at night in a room with a big bar. There is a little town on the south side of...

I have stayed at two other Riu hotels and this one in below Riu standard and the only water view is the lagoon not the ocean. Rooms were clean but my room had no handrail in the show and I had to purchase adapters for electric and finally on the second day was able to get a converter (220 to...

Happy to be immersed in the French language. Wonderful staff that greet you at each meal. Need to mention Evelyn and her crew. Rolinda the 'medicine dancing pool happy-hearted soul" and her charming Chris look after all very well. The food and preparation are fresh and plentiful. The buffets are much better than the leftovers of less stars venues. The...

I really didn't know what to expect since I read so many positive and negative reviews before leaving on this last minute trip. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms might be a little dated but they were clean and spacious. My only issue with the room was the bathroom door which is actually only a sliding door. The food was...

This is my second stay at RIU in last 5 years. My first was at Riu Palace in Riviera Maya , Mexico. The RIU here has only been there 3 years (formerly was the Radisson Blue Resort) We went for 4 nights basically just as a gate away and relax. We were glad that the new RIU had opened there...

The staff was lovely and attentive. The rooms were clean, if somewhat dated. We got a really good deal. For an all-inclusive the food was pretty good: bread, cheese and fruit, especially. The poolside iguanas are entertaining and the beach is lovely: secluded and calm. Perfect for families and perfect for people who are just there to take it easy....

Nice in many ways but a big downside for me. I am very sensitive to mold and come down with bronchitis if it is around. Which I did. A friend we met there got pneumonia. The rooms and halls are all carpeted. This, in a moist tropical climate, is a recipe for mold and mildew. There should be tiles but...
