We were a party of 2 families, 8 people with teenagers. Buffet Food average. Le Mer restaurant bad food and poor service. steakhouse was overall ok. These are the special dining nights and there was very little thats special about them. Entertainment at night terrible. Animation team activities during the day, limited and energy level is low! Could be interesting...

Room are neat and clean, but the bathrooms are so small, no door for when you are on the toilet. Lousy night entertainment, no music at the pool, nor do they have a bar in the pool area, also cheap liquor. To make dinner reservation it requires two days in advance and not all three restaurants are always open. I...

I got back on Friday from Riu Palace St. Martin. I'm not going to complain about the lack of activities at night from this resort, since I specifically didn't want to have a lot of noise and commotion. If you want a very relaxed and serene venue, then the French side is the place for you. I like the resort-it's...

Group trip with my girls. St. Maarten is one my favorite islands so was excited to go back after four years. Seeing that there was an all-inclusive Riu on the island, it sealed the deal. The resort is far into the French side of the island with steep mountain hills along the way. As you come down to the resort,...

Ride from airport about 30 minutes long, not a very pretty ride. As you approach the resort, get ready for steep mountains. Property was okay, landscaping was mostly brown due to lack of rain. Resort surrounded by mountains which makes it nice and private. Great pool, nice beach and calm waters. Was lucky that resort was not very crowded. Room...

We just returned from a 6 night stay at the Riu St. Martin - August 2-8. It was not our first stay at a Riu but it was our first trip to St. Martin. We found some very nice features and some things that could use improvements. Location & Property : The resort is very remote. If you are looking...

We arrived at sxm as a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 small kids) with a reservation at an apartment for the week, but we couldn't reach the landlords on arrival. Scary! And with tired kids in tow, we pulled in to the Riu as an emergency backup. They graciously found a place for us. They could have turned us...

We stayed at the Riu in early August and overall felt underwhelmed by the experience. We have not stayed at other Riu properties and read many of the reviews that pointed out that this isn't like their other properties. We have stayed at many all inclusive resorts, mostly in Riviera Maya and this experience didn't measure up. I think the...

The property is in a secluded part of St. Martin highly recommend renting a...
