I have stayed at two other Riu hotels and this one in below Riu standard and the only water view is the lagoon not the ocean. Rooms were clean but my room had no handrail in the show and I had to purchase adapters for electric and finally on the second day was able to get a converter (220 to...

Happy to be immersed in the French language. Wonderful staff that greet you at each meal. Need to mention Evelyn and her crew. Rolinda the 'medicine dancing pool happy-hearted soul" and her charming Chris look after all very well. The food and preparation are fresh and plentiful. The buffets are much better than the leftovers of less stars venues. The...

I really didn't know what to expect since I read so many positive and negative reviews before leaving on this last minute trip. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms might be a little dated but they were clean and spacious. My only issue with the room was the bathroom door which is actually only a sliding door. The food was...

This is my second stay at RIU in last 5 years. My first was at Riu Palace in Riviera Maya , Mexico. The RIU here has only been there 3 years (formerly was the Radisson Blue Resort) We went for 4 nights basically just as a gate away and relax. We were glad that the new RIU had opened there...

The staff was lovely and attentive. The rooms were clean, if somewhat dated. We got a really good deal. For an all-inclusive the food was pretty good: bread, cheese and fruit, especially. The poolside iguanas are entertaining and the beach is lovely: secluded and calm. Perfect for families and perfect for people who are just there to take it easy....

Nice in many ways but a big downside for me. I am very sensitive to mold and come down with bronchitis if it is around. Which I did. A friend we met there got pneumonia. The rooms and halls are all carpeted. This, in a moist tropical climate, is a recipe for mold and mildew. There should be tiles but...

I just spent 5 days at the Rui and I was a little concerned with the mixed reviews. I do not usually go to all inclusive resorts but we were with a large group. The best thing about this resort is the people. The customer service was excellent. Everyone was friendly and happy. The property was clean. Our room was...

We stayed over the Christmas Holiday, arriving Christmas Eve and stayed for 6 nights. The hotel is secluded in its own cove. We traveled up the mountain and all the way back down. Not for those who get car sick, but it's a short drive. The beach and pools were very nice. We always were able to find a chair...

We visited St Martin Feb 12 to 19. It was a girls week for my friend and I. We stayed on the French side at Hotel Riu Palace St Martin. A very good all inclusive resort. Clean, excellent a la carte restaurants and pretty good buffets. The staff are great. Very friendly and nice. Beach area was crowded but kept...
