If you like the blue azure waters of the Caribbean the Riu in St Martin is not for you. Situated at a wide cove, the water is calm but cloudy. Nice view to the north of Anguilla. The resort was fully occupied resulting in a crowded beach and pool scene. We were packed in pretty tightly with the awful waking...

We spent our week continually commenting on how much we loved this place. The colours, the funky lobby, the friendly staff, our beautiful room overlooking the main gardens (third floor), the delicious food, the excellent bubbly, the gorgeous beach and pool. A two hour massage and facial in the spa was superb. Perfect weather. The breeze. I could go on....

We went here for our 30th wedding anniversary. Everything about the place was outstanding. Stunning location, excellent amenities, very good food (superb, for an all-inclusive). Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, room was spacious and immaculate, bed was extremely comfortable, beach was lovely. Only criticisms are very minor -- front desk had trouble providing us with an extra room key,...

We like the Riu Palace hotels and weren't disappointed here. It is somewhat remote which makes it very quiet and peaceful. If you want nightlife and a town, it's not for you. The beach is amazing, beautifully sandy and perfect for those with kids. The pool looked very nice as well, we are beach people and don't use pools. And,...

This is a really nice hotel for people who want to relax in a beautiful location. The place is small and in a nice secluded area, away from the casinos and hustle of the Dutch Side. If you want to take it easy and just enjoy the pool or beach this is the place for you. It is also really...

I have been to many Riu's I don't think this one warrants the palace branding that I expect from Riu. It is good and I understand they took it over from another hotel chain but not what I expect from a Palace. The good. I got a nice free upgrade to a suite, the location is beautiful, comfortable and nice...

Just returned from family vacation in Riu St Martin. We almost changed the hotel reading previous bad reviews just before our trip . We are so glad we didn't! From the first minute we were very pleased with the service at the reception (thanks Zoraylla) and with the room (we stayed in the Marina suit) This is great quiet hotel...

Back in Dec 2016, I reviewed the RIU St Martin for my Dec stay. This is a nice resort and I was a little hard on the hotel and gave it only 3 stars, when I should have given it 4 stars. It's a nice resort, a little on the pricey side, but then St Maarten/Martin is not cheap. I...

Despite reading one or two negative reviews on this resort, My wife and I just came back from a week there, and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is a lovely clean beach with beautiful ocean-blue water, an equally lovely large pool well big enough for both adults and children, plenty of lawn chairs etc., to go around, and the grounds well...
