I stayed with my family in Riu Palace for 9 days and it was the best vacation I ever had. The resort is located on private property with a beautiful view of the mountains. Not to mention, the beach was breathtaking and not far from the suites. All the restaurants were near each other, which made it very convenient and... More

Don't waste your time. We were there for the last 90 minutes and are now sitting in the buffet dining room because we are starving. We stayed through the whole agonizing meal, but other tables up and left. The service was so poor, which is unfortunate because we have experienced great service at the resort otherwise. The waitstaff are not... More

Property's buildings and grounds are in need of major repairs. The swimming pool was out of order for two days. The buffet was out of eggs one morning and out of cream for coffee for three days. Expect to be eaten alive by mosquitos, bugs and insects that are everywhere. The only good thing going for this hotel is the... More

This was a really relaxing vacation. The staff, beach, views, pool all make this resort a great stay. This was our first RIU stay so we can't rate against others. The beach cant be beat. We have been to 19 other Caribbean islands and this beach is among the best. The food was good, you have a choice between buffet... More

Enjoyed the resort. The staff was friendly. The buffet was ok but mainly the same stuff every day. Bar tenders were great and drinks were strong. Ice machine didn't work on our floor had to go to bottom floor. Biggest drawback was the formal dining tried three times but never made it in. Came as early as 45 min prior... More

Nestled into a small bay at the French side of the island, this hotel was the best I have seen in St. Martin so far, and I went to several places before. Very upscale, the food buffet had such a large variety that even picky eaters would have lots of choices. The decorum was very elegant, so were the guests.... More

The resort is not what you expect for a RIU but is the very reason i would go back! it is low key, intimate and breath taking...if you want the hussle and bussel or the night life, go to the sonata but if you want quite, relax and no fighting to get a drink or beach chair...come here.
