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...

My husband and I took our 2 year overdo honeymoon here, our first experience with an all-inclusive resort. A friend recommended the island, which is beautiful from some places. In order to get to this resort though, you have to drive through a very poor town and up a major hill (in which the car felt like it was going...

This hotel was taken over from the Marriott and it slowly upgrading the right direction. From the moment we arrived i was amazed with the privacy of the hotel. You first drive up some high mountains and come down into a private & quite resort. The hotel is amazing. I upgrade to a private villa which is located behind the...

We had a wonderful stay at the Riu Palace in St Martin. The resort is located in a remote part of the Island, but was just what we wanted: away from the crowds. We rented a car, and with the help of the GPS, were able to navigate to all the areas we wanted to see. You could also rent...

Don't be fooled by the 4 star rating, it is far from that. Although the location & the outside property is very beautiful, the staff & the indoor maintenance of the property is very poor. Hoping to enjoy our anniversary & my birthday, our reservation was not available when we arrived, no apologizes for messing up our reservation. We decided...

My husband and I spent a long weekend here and overall we were pleased. The location is secluded, about 1.5 hour ride from SXM airport with rush hour 4pm traffic (not counting bridge closings). We rented a car ($160 from Sixt) and it was the best addition to our trip because we were able to drive around the entire island....

Just returned from a 5 day stay at the RIU St. Martin....My only complaint is that we did not stay longer. That was my 4th stay at a RIU and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this property. We have stayed at many of the Caribbean Islands over the years and at very high end properties such as Sandals and...

We stayed at the RIU St Martin, it is a very dated resort if you are ok with eating all your meals at the buffet you are fine for the food as for getting into any of the three small restaurants its a nightmare, no reservations you stand in line at I believe 5:30 or 6PM and see if you...

First stay at a Riu Palace. 2 friends traveling together for a week. My first trip to St Martin. The food was fantastic and the best food I've had at an all-inclusive buffet. The resort could use a little spit and polish but things were mostly in good shape. Beds and A/C were good. Service was very good. I like...
