Wow, what a waste of money. We were relocated to the Riu after our first choice of hotel was damaged by the hurricane. We should have just cancelled and got our money back. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary with my sister and her husband. We were suppose to have rooms together. They were on the... More

We booked this trip based on the reviews we found here, turns out that "Radisson blu" sold the property to Riu, and the service plummeted to the ground. I guess the transition is getting to them. The housekeeping is very deficient. While we were here for a week, we had a couple of occasions where the room wasn't cleaned until... More

Just got back from staying at the Riu Palace for 2 weeks after being relocated there because the Sonesta Great Bay was damaged by the hurricane. This is NOT A RIU by any stretch of the imagination. It's in the middle of no where on the French side of the island and if you want to go anywhere you have... More

We were a group that was relocated due to the hurricane and were just happy to be accommodated. I am not a world traveler but I have traveled twenty to twenty five times to a dozen countries so I have a bit of experience. We always use a travel agent so we were aware that the restaurants were not ready... More

We decided to go with the RIU as they previously had a very good reputation. We didn’t think the RIU would put their name on any property that was not up to par. However, obviously they did or their standards have drastically decreased since I last stayed with them. We wanted a nice peaceful relaxing vacation however, we feel were... More

We came back from RIU a few days ago. Staid at the hotel for a week with our 2 children, ages 6 and 3. We were well aware, when we booked our trip a few months ago, that the hotel was going to switch to All Inclusive right before we were to visit. We actually did book the RIU and... More

This resort will be beautiful when finished. We were relocated to this hotel. The hotel we were to stay at was damaged in the storm. Everything was under construction so it is hard to give a proper review. The room were very comfortable and clean. We only had the option of the buffet which was very good. There is supposed... More

Stayed here from October 23rd to November 6th Check in is painfully slow and we took a cab to the resort from the airport to beat the rush, reception is very disorganized. We were there for two weeks and I asked front desk for robes on three different occasions, first two times they were promised and then finally was told... More

We are family of four and came to 5 star hotel, where you have to jump out at 8 am to reserve a good spot under umbrella on the beach on the pool. Of course $5 always can fix it. Second week since they become all inclusive. All in one buffet with same food every day. DRINKS. only one place... More

My boyfriend and I have recently returned from the Riu Palace in St. Martin and talk about complete dissapointment!!! Upon our arrival we were never greeted with a fancy drink and carried our own bags to our room. The room was ok but the bathroom design was very strange. The shower only had half a door which caused the floor... More
