What a beautiful island Saint Martin/Sint Maarten is! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riu Palace, where we celebrated my fiftieth birthday. Our first lovely surprise is that we were upgraded to a Marina View room, which hadn’t been available when we booked. Despite the fact that the room didn’t actually have a view of the marina, it was...

What a beautiful location but not much to do close by. All taxi have a fixed price to go and back therefore it is pretty expensive unless you rent a car and do the driving. This is exactly what we did and did not regret it. We enjoyed driving around and discover this pretty island but people drive very differently...

This is a magnificent site, the weather was great all week. The food was very good from the restaurants to the buffet. This is a very quiet site everything shuts down at 11:30. There's is no Dance Club or Discotech to dance the nights away and they have absolutely no flexibility what so ever! So for me this is a...

a beautiful resort nestled within a nice picturesque setting. 24 hour room service and good food at their four restaurants. The entertainment was top notch. This is not like the other Riu resorts I've visited in the past. Similar to other Riu's but more peaceful and unique. I will visit again soon

Before we booked this hotel, I read the mixed reviews and was skeptical... but we had cheap flights to St. Martin and decided to give this a try - and I'm so happy we did! Beautiful location, very well maintained property, huge room (we had a suite with a sitting area separate from the living room), and the hotel staff...

The resort its self was nice. The management must treat the staff like crap because they never smile and are always yelling at each other. Customer service and friendliness towards the guests needs a lot of work. Front desk will try and fool you into a lower class room. Make sure you get what you paid for and don't be...

My husband and I just got back from RIU Palace, in St. Martin. It was our honeymoon. Before going there, we read reviews and some reviews were bad, which made us a little concerned before arrival. But my husband gave me the right advice, not a lot of things can be bad at once, such as problems with bags, service,...

First the bad, There is no sign that indicates that you have reached the RIU once you get there. (I must say that the whole island is pretty poorly marked) It is in a odd kind of hidden place. Entertainment is very poor. There is nothing really going on, other then they try Bingo and Volley Ball every day.(you have...

I travel with a travel group and we take a trip annually and the 2016 pick was St. Martin. We chose the Riu for a few reasons 1. Room Service; not all all-inclusive resorts offer room service. 2. The property was fairly new 3. The rooms were equipped in-room bars. I have to say that my experience was great. We...
