It took forever to get to the hotel. We rented a car at the airport and that took a long while. This got us into rush hour: we were stuck in traffic for a few hours. The hotel is a good drive from the ap, the road to the hotel is quite steep, and you need to be a savvy... More

This was an overall great experience staying in this hotel. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. The Manager, Concierge, bartender, wait staff and the associates on the beach all made the visit comfortable and memorable. The landscaping are well kept and manicured, beach is secluded and beautiful. Even Gastone, the largest iguana I have ever seen in my life,... More

I had excellent experience at this place with great location, great staff, great food. However, I would like to suggest management to take off the carpets from their rooms,corridors and change their air conditioning units. That's all I would suggest. Everything else should stay the same :)) Keep up the good job Tips: Rent a car and explore beautiful Saint... More

Just came back from my stay, July 2-8th. The hotel is not a five star, I would say 3 or. 3.5. The rooms are old, and nothing special. The restaurant has the worst service you can imagine. The pool is nice, and the beach is very nice. Construction going on as well, not pleasant. Crazy road to get into hotel,... More

We spent 2 nights at the Riu Palace after getting a last minute deal. Anse Marcel is this beautiful secluded beach with the Riu & 1 other resort directly on the beach. The resort was maybe 30% full when we were there so very peaceful & at times we had the sea all to ourselves. The staff were all very... More

We stayed here in june, after just coming from Anguilla which is obviously never going to compare! When traveling to beach locations I much prefer smaller resorts on the beach then mega resorts with no views. The hotel is fine if you like not really leaving it, but don't count on the staff to recommend anything to do on the... More

We stayed for 7 nights in June and it was a lovely place. It had just changed from the Radisson to the Riu Palace, a lot of things like the stationary still said "Radisson Blu." That didn't matter to us. Beautiful secluded setting, plan on renting a car. Large campus with beautiful landscaping, fountains, mature trees, tall mountains, wonderful clean... More

We just returned from a week at Riu Palace St. Martin. Like others, we booked with the Radisson and were never informed officially by either company of the change. We found out in time, but up until the day we left, I had several emails that went unanswered and there was not a working phone number that either Radisson or... More

Back in February, I reserved a three night stay for June at the Radisson Blu, so I was rather surprised to find out that it had changed ownership and become the Riu Palace. In fact, the official change in the hotel’s name took place on the day we arrived, so we experienced a period of transition that might not be... More
