My husband and I stayed at the Riu Palace from May 7 to 14. I have to admit I was a little nervous in our choice of the Riu which we had booked in January. I could not have chosen a better resort. Long story, but there was a mixup in our room. They upgraded us from a regular garden... More

My friend and I were actually staying in Philipsburg at another resort, but had a car and were up for exploring. We had visited this resort 22 years ago while on a cruise. At that time it was call L'Habitation, and we had such a good time there we wanted to at least visit on this trip. This is an... More

It is a little far from the main village, but beach and location are very nice. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff very kindly. In my opinion restaurants must improve, food are not the best deal in the hotel, it is expensive and there is no taste.

We just came back (April 30 - May 7) from Riu Palace St Martin with our 21-month-old daughter, we absolutely love the resort and we found it's perfect for our daughter! We stayed on the third floor of the West Side, facing the mountain, very quiet, which is perfect for a light sleeper such as me and my daughter. What... More

We loved this beautiful resort. A cozy plantation style resort with lovely immaculate grounds and beautiful infinity pool with a stunning view of the beach and bay. The service and food were excellent. Our room was spotless and our bed very comfortable. No complaints what so ever. We would definitely return again.

We stayed there with another couple (30 y/o) April 22-28 and really enjoyed ourselves. We are beach people and thought this place was great. We've been to many all inclusive resorts and I would say this place had the best food to choose from. The food at the restaurants was delicious and the buffet food was just as good. We... More

We spent 10 days in St Martin in March, 5 days at this all-inclusive property, and 5 days in Orient Beach. We feel that we got a taste of the Island and will come back in the future. For the most part, we were disappointed in our stay at this RIU. We have stayed at RIU properties in the past... More

Stayed at Riu Palace St Martin 11-18April 2015 and considering all the bad reviews we read before our arrival, my husband and I had an enjoyable week's stay. We stayed in room 1308, top floor, courtyard view, king bed. The room was very nice and everything worked fine until our second last night when the AC was not keeping the... More
