I recently spent five relaxing days with some friends at the Riu Palace. The resort is located on the French side of the island, about a half an hour's drive from the airport. You literally have to drive up a mountain, and then down the other side to get to the resort. It is very secluded and peaceful. We were... More

We came for 5 days looking for relax, sun and good service. I can say that I already knew Riu Hotels and my mind changed with the service and quality Riu St Martin has. The service we received was absolutely amazing. All the time the staff had a smile and giving you the best of them. Good job guys. Since... More

This is a beautiful resort tucked in between mountains and ocean. The one road leading in is very steep makes it very difficult for those new to the island to navigate.. especially in wet conditions. The beauty of the location is almost worth it. However the dismal service trumps all here. First sign of trouble was when we came into... More

My visit at the Riu Palace was good. The property externally is pretty well kept. The inside of the hotel needs improvement. The ice machine are not found on every floor like the book in our room said, and when I asked a hotel worker they said the same thing. It was only on first floor, nothing on second or... More

As we arrived at the lobby we were greeted with a cocktail then proceeded to check in. We were greeted by a person named Lauren who was very polite, and friendly. We then proceeded to check... More

We had a wonderful time. The road to get to the hotel was a bit disappointing and even the lobby seems a bit drab with the dull tile flooring but we were greeted with a welcome drink from the bar and the guy from reception was very friendly and accomodating since we arrived earlier than the check in time.

Well off we went on another Caribbean Anniversary trip, this time to Sint Maarten/St.Martin. We wanted a resort away from the crowds of other tourist beaches and attractions. Found it with the Hotel RIU Palace. I rented a car after some of the suggestions on TripAdvisor and besides it was inexpensive for the length of our stay, 6 days from... More

Stayed here June 16 -23 - hot hot hot and humid every day with random island downpours - neither hampered our stay. As most have stated this is not a true RIU Palace resort & as a travel agent have stayed in many. However with that said it is the only RIU on the island thus perhaps that made it... More

Three of us stayed at the Riu St. Martin for 7-nights arriving on 7-8-16 thru 7-15-16. We love the Riu's and have stayed several times in Punta Cana, Cabo, Costa Rica, Jamaica Montego Bay, Cancun and now St. Martin. This last trip at the Riu was disappointing. First, when 3 people stay in one room, Housekeeping needs to know so... More
