Me and my husband stayed at this hotel May 21-28 for our 25th wedding anniversary. I am absolutely happy we picked this resort. It is French side of the island and we rented the car to get there. Everything about this trip was perfect: starting from arrival to the departure. When I was booking this resort, I was looking for...

We spent a wonderful restful week at this beautiful resort. St Martin is a small Island, so not the place to go if you're looking for a wild nightlife, but it is the perfect r and r resort. The weather was ideal, food was excellent at all times, the staff was always friendly and professional and the accommodations were comfortable...

This is an all inclusive resort on the French side of the island. If you like a quiet resort with excellent food and terrific hospitality this is the place to be. You are secluded in a beautiful inlet which also has a marina. If you want to explore, cabs are readily available with terrific service or you can rent a...

My husband and I stayed at Riu from May 21 - 28, 2015. We arrived late on the Dutch side, and we had to travel to the French side and it was dark so we could not see how the locals live. A lot of high roads to get to where we at, but our resort was at the very...

Riu has purchased an old hotel and turned it into a nice resort. Some of the areas are still rather dated, but the very helpful staff makes up for that. Neat location is rather secluded on the north side of the island, so be aware before you go. It is not a bad thing at all especially for family or...

We spent 5 days at the Riu Palace in St Martin. Weather was perfect every day at 84 degrees. Overall we rated 4. The resort was the Radisson and taken over by Riu in Nov. 2014. It was refurbished at that time, the rooms were very nice. Great bathroom. The hotel Is all inclusive and the food was excellent. Top...

I will share more but for now a good very good property with a small but beautiful beach. If you want to walk or run on the beach you will need to go to Orient beach area. This hotel needs to continue to make improvements to a few little things like better umbrellas and more trash cans on the property....

This resort is ok, only if you are not familiar with the attention to detail and consistency of service that is RIU ! It has some great employees and very flavourful food,but it is sporadic at best and frustrating and poor, slow and impersonal at worst. There is great potential on this scenic sight but it is no wonder the...

The setting for the resort is wonderful, a quite little cove between two towering hills with a pretty little sliver of a crescent beach. The specialty restaurants were great in both the food and the service. For the most part the staff was efficient and friendly. But for a few little things they could have gotten a 4 or 5...
