The resort is beautiful. It's well decorated and is in a lovely, can't fail, location. The staff just couldn't care less about you. I was there with two of my teenage children and it got to the point where we were actually joking about some of their behavior: outrageously rude, disinterested, blatantly ignoring guests requests. Just unbelievable. Also, when you... More

We just got home from a 5 night stay at Riu palace saint martin and I would say most of the reviews here are pretty accurate. The good is the island itself, this is a beautiful place I would highly recommend that you come visit. The resort is on a very nice bay with a marina attached to it. We... More

I took my mom and dad here for to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. They have not traveled much outside of the US except for Riveria Maya, Mexico for another family vacation. They were super excited and had a great time. I have traveled a lot throughout Europe, Mexico, Carribean and have stayed at many all inclusives so I'm a... More

Make no mistakes, some staff a great but to many don't get it. We have been to Royal, Excellence, Playa Esermeralda and this place is not one of them! It loses its stars on lack of the finer points of making things right for you. One would think a daily tip of $10 USD has the maid notice the Kleenex... More

My self and my husband just returned from a 5 night stay at the RIU Palace St Martin. The resort: The resort is beautiful located in Anse Marcel, a bay surrounded by mountains on the north side of the island, with distant views of neighboring island Antigua. The location is a bit remote which can be a plus or minus... More

A relaxing vacation. This hotel is placed very nicely by the beach. Its recently converted to an all inklusive hotel. The food at the buffé restaurants was great, lots of different choices. The specialty restaurants needs some improvement. Some of the food we ate was not finished. The specialty staff seemed to need a plan in there work, thou they... More

We just arrived home from St. Maarten last Sunday. We stayed at the Riu Palace which was quite lovely, smaller than any off the Rius that we have stayed in. The rooms were very charming and very very clean. We had a room on the third floor facing the marina, which was a nice view. Being a smaller resort it... More

I really don't understand why some people complain about the food. It was amazing. Tons of choices, and everything had taste. Sometimes we ate lunch at 12:00 right when the buffet opened up, and the food was super fresh, then we'd return for a 2:45 snack. Obviously the 2:45 meals were not as fresh, but that is nothing to complain... More

This was our first experience with a RUI Palace Resort and before leaving on our trip (Jan 8th-15th) we had heard some negative comments. There was no need for any apprehension on our part. My wife and I had a wonderful time. The buffet selections were excellent in quality and variety. Two specialty restaurants we went to were superb. There... More
