This is a follow-up to my earlier review in which I described how I was having issues with getting back my unused deposit. I am happy to report the issue was resolved. After personally calling the hotel's front desk and explaining what was happening, the clerk transferred me to their accounting department. They took down my information and within 2... More

The hotel was a bit of a drive from the airport. However, the beach and pool were very nice and my kids enjoyed it very much... The rooms were comfortable but the view would have been much nicer if it was of the beach. There are no rooms with beach views apparently. The voltage was an issue as even though... More

Under Radisson and a previous owner, this has for years been a lovely, off the beaten path, fantastic-in-every way resort. When we were there in April, the staff was abuzz with the Riu rumors and they, like us, were not optimistic about an all-inclusive model. The appeal of the area surrounding the hotel is that it has some of the... More

Beautiful and secluded beach. Clean and well kept grounds. Great staff, especially accommodating were Lilliana, Alfred and Jaclyn from management. Not sure what will happen once it becomes all inclusive.

We stayed for a few days for labor day weekend in this piece of heaven. Very quiet and remote, with a stunning private beach. Service is great, rooms are updated and staff is charming. Only 4 hours from NY on a direct Delta flight...

My wife and I are well travelled in the Caribbean and in Europe. To me the island of St. Martin is a very congested island, car, bars and people and junk! Driving from the airport on the Dutch side to Anse Marcel Bay on the French side disappointed me, until you go down the little mountain into Anse Marcel Bay... More

**Skip to the last paragraph if you don't want to read a long, in-depth review, lol. My boyfriend and I just got back a couple days ago from our stay at RIU Place (apparently, formerly a Radisson hotel) and overall it was a great getaway. We had never stayed there before, so I can't comment on how it compares under... More

First Caribbean vacation I can say my family and I will return twice. We have stayed at beautiful resorts all overt Mexico and the islands and St Martin and the Riu Palace is now the top of our list. Hotel was just changed to Riu in June 2014. No actual changes have been made yet. There is construction going on... More

My wife and I stayed in the Riu Palace St. Martin from 8 July 2014 until 18 July. I had a deposit of 349.44 Euros taken out of my bank account by the hotel's then-owner Radisson when I made the reservation in May. Since the hotel was taken over by Riu shortly after, I had concerns about this deposit possibly... More

First of all, you must know that the first 900 reviews for this hotel refer to the Radisson Blue Anse Marcel and not the RIU Palace St Martin. The Radisson Blue was purchased by RIU June 1, 2014. It is anomalous that Tripadvisor suggests that 800 positive ratings are for the RIU Palace. I sent them an email about it... More
