We have stayed at many all-inclusive resorts, including other Riu Hotel. We stayed Nov. 29 - Dec 5 When we arrived at our room,... More

There are good things and bad things about the RIU Palace St. Maarten. First the check in process needs to get streamlined. We waited in line to check in and once we checked in, we had to wait in yet another line to pay since they only had one working credit card machine. We were going to be at the... More

Terrific hotel, beautifully situated in the bay of Ansel Marcel. If you compare the Dutch side (Sint-Maarten) and the French side (Saint-Martin), it's a world of a difference. Philipsburg, the capital of Sint-Maarten, is being submerged with cruise ship in the season (December - April), which makes it a very busy and noisy sea-side resort and then you are very... More

The transformation of the property from a Radisson Blu to a Riu is underway, but not complete. Our group had more than four dozen rooms. Some had been refurbished, while others had not. It is a nice spot in a beautiful location. It is not ready for a better rating yet. Positives: beautiful location, wonderful staff across the property, the... More

We stayed at the Riu from Dec 5 - Dec 9. We were fully aware that the hotel was in transition. Please note that we have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and have stayed at other all inclusive resorts such as Sandals. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: Check in was easy, quick and loved the rum drink while... More

The good: climate is great, staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is rather good. Now for the bad and ugly: beautiful bay was completely covered in seaweeds. Mounds and mounds of melly weeds not cleaned. After informing management 3 guys with shovels cleaned may be 1/4 the weeds. Beach is very narrow but the bottom sandy. Supposedly hotel was... More

Prior to boarding a cruise, we spent a day at the Riu Hotel in St Martin. The room was comfortable and well maintained with a great view. The setting is fantastic, with pool alongside side the beach in a gorgeous setting. The food was plentiful and quite good. Overall an excellent experience.
