Riu has purchased an old hotel and turned it into a nice resort. Some of the areas are still rather dated, but the very helpful staff makes up for that. Neat location is rather secluded on the north side of the island, so be aware before you go. It is not a bad thing at all especially for family or... More

We spent 5 days at the Riu Palace in St Martin. Weather was perfect every day at 84 degrees. Overall we rated 4. The resort was the Radisson and taken over by Riu in Nov. 2014. It was refurbished at that time, the rooms were very nice. Great bathroom. The hotel Is all inclusive and the food was excellent. Top... More

I will share more but for now a good very good property with a small but beautiful beach. If you want to walk or run on the beach you will need to go to Orient beach area. This hotel needs to continue to make improvements to a few little things like better umbrellas and more trash cans on the property.... More

This resort is ok, only if you are not familiar with the attention to detail and consistency of service that is RIU ! It has some great employees and very flavourful food,but it is sporadic at best and frustrating and poor, slow and impersonal at worst. There is great potential on this scenic sight but it is no wonder the... More

The setting for the resort is wonderful, a quite little cove between two towering hills with a pretty little sliver of a crescent beach. The specialty restaurants were great in both the food and the service. For the most part the staff was efficient and friendly. But for a few little things they could have gotten a 4 or 5... More

It's gorgeous there, great staff, great beach - great food. Swimming pool was great. Perhaps a little too isolated. Need to drive over this very steep hill to get there. It was nice to be able to stay there all day if you wanted

So-so experience during my late May trip. Pros: Clean facility, pleasant staff, nice beach, serene views, beautiful water, quite and relaxing place. Cons: The buffet is low to mid grade. There's a complex situation where reservations are limited and or inaccessible. The pool does not have a swim up bar. The beach does not have chair service. There's no night... More

Please note that the rating is based on attitude and service and not the property itself. The grounds were beautiful and striking. With that said…. While on a hospitality and tourism assignment in St Maarten it had been suggested that I make a trip to the RIU Palace on the French side of the island to visit this remarkable hotel.... More

I just returned from a great stay at the Riu. I selected the hotel because of the reviews and I was looking for an all-inclusive resort. Location The hotel is a good distant from the airport. Getting a taxi was easy. No one harassing you to get a taxi. It was $40 one way. You get to see a lot... More
